Paul’s Instruction for Women

Having just gotten through chapter 2 of our study in 1 Timothy, I wanted to include a quote from Charles Erdman that is related to our discussion of Paul’s instructions for women in the church in verses 9-15:

“It is not difficult to understand why such statements by Paul have made him unpopular with certain elect ladies of the present day. Yet it should be said in defense of the apostle that his writings, taken as a whole, have done more for the emancipation of women, more to secure her social and civil and political rights, than the productions of any other author who could be named; and her highest happiness is enjoyed only in those countries where the Christian principles set forth by the great apostle are set forth and obeyed” (The Pastoral Epistles, p. 42).
