May you all have peace! There is a reason that Paul's teachings are accepted by most JW women (and many other women "of faith"): (1) they WANT to take the puerile position so as to not be RESPONSIBLE for their own actions... and thus, (2) are convinced (by others or in and of themselves) that the words to Eve regarding domination by HER husband... applied to ALL women, and so (3) Paul's words make sense.
If they would look at the women in the Bible they hold so dear (Sarah, Naomi, Hannah, Deborah, Esther, Abigail, Mary the Magdalene, Phoebe, Lydia, Priscilla, and others)... they would see that such thinking is not only in error, but a major means for misleading women "of faith." Should a woman honor her husband? Of course, she should... just as he should honor her! Should she respect and be respectful of him? Always. Just as he should respect and be respectful of her. Being an non-thinking, unopinioned, doormat, however, is not honoring OR respecting one's husband... or one's wife... at all. A COMPLEMENT makes up the deficit in another... and we all have deficits of one sort or another.
The WTBTS, however, like many other religions, have created a system where a woman is not to think, but to defer thinking to her husband. At least, as to the "important" things (sure, she can choose what to cook for dinner, what color curtains to hang, and which knee-length dress to wear to which meeting... but not much more than that). And, for the most part, "she" likes it that way... because it relieves HER of her responsibilities... particularly when it comes to God and Christ.
It really is no different from the men, though, who follow the WTBTS as to their service to God. All of these believe that, in the end, they wil be able to say "My husband... the WTBTS... GB... Devil... made me do it."
Ain't gonna fly, though. Paul's admonishments to wives were based on two things: the laws of Rome at the time... HIS understanding as to the place of women pursuant to the Jewish system during THAT time (which was very different from when women were appointed as judges!) due to his education as a Pharisee. The first was necessary: women were not allowed to speak in public settings... and doing so could cause great persecution for the christians involved at that time. The second, however, was wrong... which Paul later came to understand as shown by HIS direction to the men as to receiving women MINISTERIAL SERVANTS (such as Phoebe - Romans 16:1, 2), later on.
Folks must remember, although the letters to the Corinthians appear in the Bible canon AFTER that to the Romans, they were written FIRST. Paul's change in paradigms, however, came AFTER his direct dealings with the Corinthians, indeed as a RESULT of the devastation he almost caused there.
As for the men, it is ambition... disguised as "reaching out" or "service to Jehovah" that makes them so malleable. True, Paul's admonitions are once again used to create this ambition, but if anyone undertook to study about what was going on back then, those who preached were APPOINTED to do so, by Christ through holy spirit (and thus, were ALL anointed)... while those who "reached out" did so as to overseeing... the DISTRIBUTION... of food, clothing, money, etc.,... to the widows and orphans. Not like the WTBTS even has such a "ministry" today, though. Nope, all that money goes right to... well, we all know where it DOESN'T go.
I hope this helps and, again, peace to you all!
