What Does The Bible Say About Christian (Holy) Women?

     First of all, men and women are loved and esteemed equally in the sight of God; neither is one better, or more important, than the other (Galatians 3:28). But--- God is a God of order (1 Corinthians 14:40, Colossians 2:5), and every person has his own place, ministry, and function in the kingdom of God; and when people violate that order, it is confusion (Leviticus 18:23, 20:12, 1 Samuel 20:30, Ezra 9:7) and abomination (Deuteronomy 22:5, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:26,27, Leviticus 18:22), and rebellion, which is the same aswitchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23, 2 Kings 9:22). 
 
     One of the ordinances of which the apostle Paul spake in 1 Corinthians 11:2was that which he went on to explain in verses 3-16, which was ordained of God in the beginning (Genesis 3:16). It pertains to the God-ordained order of subjection, as it is written, 
 

"The head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man; and

the head of Christ is God."

1 Corinthians 11:3.

 
Isaiah wrote these words from the LORD:
 
     "The earth mourneth and fadeth away, 
the world languisheth and fadeth away, 
the haughty people of the earth do languish.
 
     The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws 
(given by Moses from God), 
changed the ordinance 
(the divine order of God which he ordained from the beginning), 
broken the everlasting covenant
(Genesis 9:16). 
Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate..." -
 

Isaiah 24:4-6

     God will hold men accountable for their actions, whether they have heard the law or not, because the heavens declare the glory of God (Psalm 19:1-3, Romans 1:18) and the law is written in the heart, or conscience, of every man from his birth (Romans 2:12-16), and they are without excuse (Romans 1:20). How much more the church of God?
 

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God..."

 

1 Peter 4:17

 

"And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city,

and smite:

let not your eye spare,

neither have ye pity: Slay utterly

old and young, both maids, and little children, and women...and begin at my sanctuary."

 

Ezekiel 9:5,6

     With this in mind, let us search the scriptures, let the traditions of men be washed from our minds and hearts by the word of God (Ephesians 5:26), and believe and obey that which is written in the holy scriptures. As it is written, 
 

"The law of the wise is a fountain of life,

to depart from the snares of death."

Proverbs 13:14.
