Does the Bible allow Christian women to have authority?
Our patriarchal culture, our fathers and mothers, and our churches have often told us no. But what, in fact does the Bible say? Should we shrink back and silence ourselves, or does God allow us to break the silence?
I tell a story in my Redbud post, and then I ask this:
“Authority is a hard topic for women, especially women in the church. What does it mean to have authority and to act in our authority as women? Too often, a woman in authority is called bossy rather than authoritative. We don’t want the bossy label, but how do we act in our God-given authority?” Click here to join me over at Redbud Writers Guild to find my answer to this question!
