Why are Christians who say women can't teach men because it's "not their role" perfectly fine with women teaching men outside of the church?

    They aren't fine with that either.

    Having been through my share of leftist HR mandated training taught by women, I think Paul was onto something.

    In the one Church Jesus Christ founded, to which He promised the fullness of God's truth, women do everything that men do, except become priests.

    There is the difficulty making old beliefs match decency as it comes to light in improved world. They double speak and double reality to make it work. That is the compartment thinking.

    Because

    in context

    it's clear that Paul was prohibiting women teaching men in church

    not outside of church.

    We have, for example, the Biblical account of Priscilla teaching the man at synagogue - without reproach, and Paul himself was there.

    Women in scripture held positions as 'prophets,' (e.g. Acts 21:9), which is a position higher than 'teacher' and second only to 'apostle' in the Church, (1 Corinthians 12:28). However, only the 'unmarried' could hold these positions.

    The restrictions on 'women' teaching in the Church is upon married women, (Greek: 'gune'), since they cannot avoid filtering all of their decisions and judgments through their inherent bias towards their own family. Eve is even given as an example of a wife deceived as she was seeking a 'better life' for herself and her husband. 

    When not conflated with ministry, this drive is actually healthy and good. Each wife should be wholly devoted to her husband and family, applying the scriptures to her role there and learning to join together with other women in this same effort for the benefit of society itself. Together they are capable of restraining evil itself. 

    The assignment of this role and any restrictions have NOTHING to do with gender bias. That is merely a lie devised to weaken both Christian ministry and family. 

    No matter what we have a great desire and calling to accomplish, there is a 'right way' to accomplish it, (GOD's assigned order of authority), and a 'wrong way' to attempt it, ('secular' viewpoints). Our ethnicity, class or gender is neither an obstruction nor even a factor when we accept and embrace GOD's way.

    "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)

    • "they cannot avoid filtering all of their decisions..."
      "restrictions have NOTHING to do with gender bias. That is merely a lie..."

      Double speaking with silver tongue.

    Sadly, some are not.    Both male and female were made in the image of God
