Notice what Paul says in II Timothy 3:6: "For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts."

I know that I am going to make some folks angry by suggesting that there are some silly-minded women in the world. The fact of the matter, however, is that there are silly-minded women in this world, and my purpose in doing this broadcast is to encourage you not to be one of them.

Now, what do I mean when I use the term "silly-minded" women? I know that it is painful to talk about, but if you'll be honest, you'll probably admit to knowing some silly-minded women. A silly minded woman is a woman who is not known to be a thinker. She is a woman who is considered easy. Like Eve, she is easily deceived by the devil. She is easily tricked by cunning men. She is a woman who is not guided by absolutes, moral principles, or facts; rather, she is guided by her emotions and feelings only. Therefore, periodically, throughout her life, she gets herself into terrible messes with God, with men, with people on her job, and even with her children. She is a woman who is not characterized by prayer, thoughtfulness, positive action, soberness, and vigilance. She doesn't keep her guard up in life. Therefore, she is constantly bombarded by people and things that keep her from fulfilling God's purpose for her life. Obviously, the powerful verse found in I Peter 5:8 is not on her mind: "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
