   Topical Verses:
        women in the church
i would love to know some different opinions about women in the church and their roles and how people interpret the "women should be silent in the church" verse from timothy (cant remember where abouts though!)

      Galatians 3:28   
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Pope John Paul II in his exhortation "Familiaris Consortio" says of the role of women that "the history of salvation, in fact, is a continuous and luminous testimony of the dignity of women...God gives man and woman an equal personal dignity, endowing them with the inalienable rights and responsibilites proper to the human person. God then manifests the dignity of women in the highest form possible, by assuming human flesh from the Virgin Mary...The sensitive respect of Jesus towards the women that He called to His following and His friendship, His appearing on Easter morning to a woman before the other disciples... these are all signs that confirm the special esteem of the Lord Jesus for women."

We must also take these examples into account when reading the verse you refer to (which I believe is 1 Corinthinans 14:34-36)
