The article explores the passage 1 Tim 2:8-15 from a womanist point of view. Its starting point is that the mission of the church should not dominate or alienate but spread love and justice. If the church wishes to do this, it should embody love and justice in its own structures and relationships. If a scriptural passage is oppressive it does not have authority; for that reason 1 Tim 2:8-15 should not be obeyed, but it should be taken seriously.
