1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

In Verse 12, Paul was addressing the women in this fashion because they were most likely disrupting the services because of questions. He said later on that they were to ask their husbands at home. Also you cannot usurp authority as a woman IF you are asked to teach, preach, evangelize, or even Pastor a church. Usurp means to commandeer or do something w/o the right to do so. I pray this helps you

Man saved or lost CANT tell you to preach or not to preach. God told me to tract I want to pastor instead. The holy ghost is not in me pastoring it's tracting. I OPEN THE DOOR AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT I CLOSE THE DOOR AND NO MAN CAN OPEN IT. One way or another you WILL do what God calls you to do
