    Biblical Vision for Daughters over 20? - Being Virtuous Women

    There are many examples of female submssion/male patriarchalism in religions around the world (Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Mormonism--particularly fundamentalist LDS). What do you think of the opinions above? Are women the property/responsibility/subordinates of men, required by God to submit to the headship of a man (their father or husband)? Do women require the oversight of a man in order to be in line with God's will for their lives? Is this concept workable in a modern era?

    Or, are such teachings abusive and barbaric?

    There are verses in the new testament that say that a woman should cover herself while praying (generally thought of as involving a veil). However, in this sense, it's the covering of male headship and authority over women which is being discussed.

    p.s. You can probably guess that I am NOT a "covered woman."

    My family are Pentecostal.
    There is a time and place for everything.
    My wife won't wear pants to Church and all the women's dresses are ankle length.
    I don't see it as controlling, but then again I have never heard a direct sermon on the subject as to the whys.
    (I married into it;) )
    It is merely humbling one's self before God......no gaudy jewelry or make up, etc...


    (house full....distracted to keep a strong point.....reply if unclear)
    :cool:

    I guess my point is that if covering is demanded by god it would't be a matter of submitting to god not to man. I don't judge anyone who wants to cover or uncover.

    If it was written by me they would be swinging on poles.
