No beloved. Women need to be obedient -- as do men. Kat Armas is advocating for women to disobey God -- period. Women do not need advocacy like that. They need biblical women to come alongside and speak the truth. That women can serve mightily in the church of God but He has set aside this one thing they are not to touch and like Eve before them, some women still look at the fruit and wonder to themselves, "Did God really say?" Yes beloved He did. What Kat Armas is saying here is that she knows better than God. I assure you, she does not.
"5) When women are empowered, society as a whole flourishes. We know that on a global scale, women are among the most oppressed people. In certain countries, many women have no rights in society, are sold like cattle for a bride price, forced into sex slavery and in some places, not even allowed to show their face in public. However, organizations like UN Women and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), among others, have reported on studies that show how much of a vital contribution--and even complete shift in society--women make when they are educated and empowered. UN Women found that increased educational attainment for women and girls accounts for about 50 percent of the economic growth in OECD countries over the past 50 years. Over half of this is due to girls having had access to higher levels of education and achieving greater equality in the number of years spent in education between men and women. Similarly, a study using data from 219 countries found that, for every additional year of education for women, the child mortality rate decreased by 9.5 percent. These are only a couple statistics among hundreds that prove that women's equality is necessary for human flourishing. When women are empowered, everyone wins. If this is true on a grand and global scale, wouldn't it be true for the overall health and growth of the Church? If women are celebrated, empowered and given freedom to exercise their gifts in leadership as God intends, imagine what it could do for the global Church--God's kingdom on Earth as He intended--a glorious, united and beautifully vibrant people." -- Kat Armas
Unbiblical desperation on the cusp of madness. So because women are treated as lesser in most non-Christian countries we need to ignore what God has said about them teaching and preaching in authority over men in His church? I do not think so. Even the premise is ridiculously carnal. Yes the world believes that the women's liberation movement has caused a flourishing in this country but Christians know it has destroyed the family. Women are fully empowered now and if you think everyone has won go and check divorce rates. Most women are encouraged now to try alternative lifestyles in Middle School and by the time they get into their teen years have been convinced that they do not need a man. I understand why the world views that as progress but the church? I do not have to wonder what will happen if we fully disobey God. We will reap what we sow. Realize beloved at the end of the day we are talking about one thing being forbidden. One thing. The devil whispers in the ears of well-intended Christians and says -- did the Lord really say? Yeah, He did.
