Whenever someone preaches about the subject of church, it is guaranteed that somewhere along the long, the topic of women speaking in church will come up. Most believers are taught that women are to be silent in churches, no teaching, preaching, no speaking, except (some preachers say) prophecy.
This is taught because of Paul's words to Timothy.
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. 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. [1Cor 14:34, 35]
Scripture from 1 Timothy is used also:
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. [1Tim 2:11-14]
In Peter, there is mention of women being meek and quiet, but what was Peter referring to? Are women to be silent in church and not speak?
The Lord tells us to study to show ourselves approved. Theologians study to help them understand the meaning behind more difficult scriptures. Are the preachers, teachers and rest of believers studying also, and if one does not have the means or the time to study, are we at least taking everything to the Lord as we have been instructed to do?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your steps. [Prov 3:5, 6]
