In this case, there is no way to determine when a woman is exercising “authority over a man.” The second issue is defining when and where “in the churches” occurs. The words used in this text can be defined and redefined, but the end result is that the Word is not sufficient to answer these questions that are in addition to the scripture. There is a different…
