The Bible calls them women of faith. He also said that it was right to obey God rather than men. Here are a few marks: The church is the organ for the training of Christian submission to authority.
In the whole world there is no such thing as submission. But a Christian must learn submission. He must, moreover, submit from submissioon heart, not just in an outward way.
Once a person learns submission, he will look for authority wherever he goes. This is because he has become fearful of making mistakes; he is a truly soft person. They will have no desire or interest to be an authority. They have no joy in giving opinions or in controlling others. Those who submit to authority are always afraid of making mistakes. Only those who do not know authority love to be the authority. They will be restricted.
They will not dare to speak carelessly, because they have the consciousness of authority with them. He will see through many lawlessnesses and realize many rebellions. He will then come to know that the principle of lawlessness abounds everywhere, in the world as well as in the church. Only those who have met authority can lead others to learn submission.
Only when the brothers and sisters are submissive to authority will the church have a testimony and a way on earth.
If you put two dogs together, you cannot make one the submissino and make the other submit to authority. If a man meets authority, everything is solved. Once he violates authority, he will realize that he has violated God.
If a man has not seen authority, it is useless to point out his mistakes.
