A theology of the sexes: Woman = wisdom

One of the most underestimated qualities of women is their ability to influence through wise counsel. It’s no coincidence that wisdom in the book of Proverbs is personified as a woman and the young man’s quest for a wife is likened to his quest for wisdom.

The wise counsel of women is a distinctive way women help the church fulfills its mission.

Men go to war because they are the more dispensable sex called to sacrifice their lives for the protection of the community.

 

 

A theology of the sexes: men and women are inextricably united

For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

– 1 Corinthians 11:8-12
