Courageous Women

Fear is a killer. Both men and women fall prey to it. People don’t confess their sins according to 1 John 1:9 for various reasons, one of them is fear of what others may think.

Don’t die in your sins. Read 1 John 1:9 and James 5:16 and follow them.

Courageous women overcome peer pressure and the fear of what others may think, everyday, but can they do it in Church. 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 tells us unequivocally that women should remain silent in Church.

Simply attending church exposes some problems that women may encounter. They need to be courageous in order to keep God’s law. As soon as you walk in the door someone is saying hello to you. You need to ignore them or maybe arrive right at the start of the service. Perhaps wave, but if you keep God’s word on this matter you surely will be talked about. It’s even possible that ignorant preachers will bid you to talk to them or to the people seated next to you. Again you need to be separate and remain silent. Men can’t alter the law of God which is why when a preacher asks women to speak in church I have dubbed it a call to shame.

Women can truly be courageous, but it helps if they know the law. Hosea 4:6 KJV says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge … .

Pretty Woman

Proverbs 31:10 KJV Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

My bible app defines virtuous by note as lit. wife of valor. This definition seems at first glance to be erroneous, yet with further inspection it could be found partially accurate.

First, I believe a virtuous woman can be single. She doesn’t need to marry.

Secondly, virtuous in my opinion means chaste while valor means courageous or brave.

So how do you resolve this seemingly odd definition. A woman who is chaste is also brave. She has learned to place great value upon herself. She has through daily living developed the intelligence and personal strength to be chaste or virtuous, which is also defined by Merriam-Webster as righteous or morally excellent.
