Apostle Paul's View on Women Leadership in Church
Name

If Paul argued that slaves should obey their masters in Ephesians 6, is his teaching that women should keep quiet in church (1 Cor. 14) also connected to his historical period? Explain your answer
Yes,
Reason
Paul's perspective on the leadership of women in churches is actually showing the cultural milieu of the apostle Paul and therefore cannot be considered as reliable for the 21st millennium. This view is common among egalitarians; Paul was basically giving a short-term, regional control only for the congregation at Ephesus due to the cultural parameters in which this church was wrapped. In other terms, this injunction was only used on the regional church at Ephesus. Some claim that Paul's control was released to the church as a result of the position of women within the Ephesus culture and the popularity of the questionable infertility conspiracy within the city. Paul's injunctions in the book of first Timothy 2:9-15, he applied cultural considerations to the matter actions in an exclusive leadership establishment. The Ephesus's community and religious beliefs even the conspiracy of Artemis Ephesia-shared common features with many other modern Greco-Roman places. Hence, we have every reason to expected Paul to apply the limitation of women from educating and training formal concept over a man to "every place". Exegetical therapies can continue with the supposition that Ephesus was not an exclusive community as we read today
