Religion and Spirituality in Women’s lives

Leave a comment

In this chapter, it talks about how religion plays a role in women’s lives. Women aren’t seen to be that important when it comes down to religion. In this section it states that men are seen to be a representation of God and women should worship them as if they are like God. It also says that women shouldn’t become preachers or teach the word because that is what the man is for. According to men, women should teach the young children, girls especially, how to behave in a religious way towards men.

I personally didn’t like this reading because it talks so much on how Men have more power in religion than women. In one section it says that women don’t have a huge part in the Bible. Whether this is true or not that doesn’t mean that women should be looked down upon just because they don’t have a major roles in the bible. I have seen plenty of women in control in a religious way and from my experience they were better then most of the men I seen as preachers and religious leaders. Women have the right to do whatever they want whether it’s religious or not and can do it as good or maybe even better.
