Paul Orders Silence for Women

These verses seem to discredit Paul as an apostle. Is that heresy to assert? We definitely reject the truth of this teaching in our church today. Women are welcome to speak and participate in both worship and other church meetings as equals of men. How do we grapple with this?

1 Corinthians 14:34, 35 NLT

“Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says. If they have any questions, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings.”
