OPINION||This is what I saw in the Bible that made me angry at God

Because I was born into Christianity, both my mother and father are devout Christians who attend church every Sunday with their families. As a result, I was automatically labeled as a Christian. I recently read something in the Holy Bible that got me really enraged with God, and it has made me want to discontinue my attendance at church.

As a woman, I have always advocated for gender equality and women's empowerment, so seeing a text like this made me feel depressed. In Corinthians 15:34-35, and I paraphrase, it says "Women are expected to remain silent in meetings, just as they are in all churches of God's people. They are not permitted to talk, and according to Jewish law, they are not permitted to be in command."

Women should not talk in the presence of God, according to the scripture, which can be explained as follows: In light of the fact that both men and women are created by God, this makes me feel less like a human being. This verse has made angry and I'm still contemplating on quitting going to church.

What are your thoughts on this particular verse from the Bible? Should I discontinue my attendance at church? Please let me know what you think in the comment box below.
