Update to e-jw

The following update has been added to

"Paul said,
"I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet." (1Tim.2:12)
Who does not permit??? Is it God?
When the apostles were certain that God's spirit said something, they let us know (Acts15:28).

However, I am inclined to believe that Paul was referring to the Bible's meaning of "woman" covenants and those in them...
that these are to be silent before the Christ who teaches them (Matt.10:27; Eph.5:23,24) This is the meaning of the context of 1Tim.2:12 (1Tim.2:13,14,15; Gal.4:19; Rev.12:2; Eph.5:23,24,32) Being "kept safe through childbearing" (1Tim.2:15) is not physical, but spiritual. Also the submissive "wife" of which Paul speaks as having this spiritual protection, is not physical, but spiritual (Gal.4:19; Rev.12:2).
Do you know how many anointed ones fail in doing this,
by "speaking up" and teaching things that Christ has not given them? These usurp the headship and actual current teachings of Christ.
Paul was the watchdog of the first century, over this very "wife" (2Cor.11:2,3).
This is why he did not permit such inpropriety among the "Bride"."
