When Apostle Paul writes to Timothy about women in public worship, he writes in 1 Timothy 2:11 that the woman should learn in silence with all subjection (submission). This is in no ways a means to validate the expression of unequal preferences between the sexes in the Church, for God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), meaning he does not favor one man over another or a man over a woman or vice-versa. Both male and female are created in his very own image (Genesis 1:27). However, from this scripture, we can learn the manner in which the Church (the Woman who is loved of the Bridegroom, Jesus) must worship.
The Church must learn to be hush and humble in worshiping the Lord, i.e., the Church must be silent and in all submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ when it comes to her act of worship. Unfortunately, the people of God who make the Church, tend to talk and blabber more than they should with their mouths, instead of with their lives. We often try to be supreme exalting ourselves, rather than be submissive (humble) and exalting Him. Psalm 46:10 tells us that we ought to be still and know that He [Jesus] is God, it is He [Jesus] that will be exalted among the heathen; among the earth. When we (the Church) are silent, we can hear the voice of God and we can exalt Him by being submissive to what He tells us. Let us learn to be silent and in all subjection to Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom who loves the Church (His Woman).
1 Timothy 2:11 (KJV)
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
Psalm 46:10 (KJV)
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
