It’s not a question of whether or not one of the sexes can do it as well or better than the other. It’s a question of orderliness, an order determined by God himself. It’s a question of service to God and to one another that leads both Christian men and Christian women to respect God, respect his order and respect each other.
Jesus, our Savior, allows no room for pride and a superiority complex to be a part of the Christian faith because whenever it creeped its way in to the disciple’s life, he had a way of humbling them quickly to sort of reverse the way they think about things in life. Remember he flip-flops the rules of life by saying, the greatest becomes the least and the least becomes the greatest – which is foreign to our natural way of thinking.
