(This is written by my husband, Don Taylor, who is my biggest encourager. He is the one who helped me realize that Southern Baptists were not treating women right. To me, that was the normal way, but my husband opened my eyes to the injustice in the churches. My great thanks to him.)
At church last Sunday, I noticed that there were nine women and three men in the choir. That is consistent with choirs of many churches I have attended the last few years. To me it looks like the choirs are made up of at least 60 percent women.
Looking around in the pews I can see that there are more women than men attending the services. Women alone or with other women or a woman attending with a married couple. The 60-40 ratio is pretty consistent. Seldom is there a man by himself.
Will it be this way in heaven?
Women are less likely to commit violent crimes. There are fewer women in prison. The Texas prison system holds 143,000 men to just 12,000 women.
Can you conclude that men are more likely to do evil than women? Yet, men do almost all of the preaching in the churches.
I am acquainted with many Godly men who do great works for the Lord. But, at the same time I also know many Godly women who do great works for the Lord.
When we all get to heaven; will that heavenly chorus sound heavily soprano?
