Christians are so fond of criticizing Islam’s position towards women, claiming that Christianity offers women freedom, respect, and equality. In fact Christian women in the west are often fond of claiming they have a right to say what they feel, and a right to teach, and a right to basically speak, and if Muslims have a problem with this then we should leave or whatever.
Firstly, Muslims do not have a problem if a lady wants to speak her mind, or teach, or even speak! No, we have no problems with this, however so, the Bible has a problem with this! The false apostle Paul has a problem with this! The other false apostle Timothy also has a problem with this! It seems that Christians do not know their Bible, but that is not a problem as I am here to help out, and I shall teach you your own Bible.
So let us first see what Paul said in regards to women:
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. 35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. (1 Corinthians 14:34-35)
So notice what Paul says, he first says Christian women have NO RIGHT to even open their mouths in a Church, they cant speak at all, they should keep silent. Secondly, Paul even says women should only ask questions in the HOUSE, to get the answers from their husbands! Basically women aren’t allowed to have education! And last but not least, Paul says it’s a SHAME for women to speak in a Church. Tell me, why is it a shame for women to speak in a Church? Is it because they are inferior? Is it because they are females?
Any honest open minded person will see these verses are anti-women and show what a sexist anti-women faith Christianity is!
It does not end there though, it gets even worse, let us read what Timothy had to say:
So Timothy says women should learn in SILENCE, and subjection, which basically means a lady must learn things at the house by her husband as Paul stated in 1 Corinthians chapter 14. Timothy goes even further though, he says woman aren’t allowed to teach! Or hold authority over men, and that they should remain silent. So basically in Christianity a lady is not allowed to teach anyone!
So to Christian women, why do you always come telling Muslims you have a right to speak and so on? It is not the Muslims saying you can’t, it’s your own Bible, so who are you kidding? It shows how ignorant you are of your own book, but now you know what your book says, what will you do with these passages? If you believe these passages then keep your mouths shut as Paul says, if you reject these passages then throw the Bible away, it is as simple as that. There is one final choice, turn to Islam, where women DO have a right to teach and speak, even allowed to teach men! The choice is yours.
And Allah Knows Best!
