WHO ARE SMARTER, MEN OR WOMEN?
By Dr. Michael J. Bisconti
Judges 4:4,5 says:
And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.
Although this passage does not teach that women may lead righteous men it does teach that GOD GIVES RIGHTEOUS WOMEN THE SAME ABILITY TO MAKE GOOD JUDGMENTS AS RIGHTEOUS MEN.
Therefore, the answer to the question “who are smarter, men or women?” is that, while women may not lead righteous men, women may be just as smart as men. And, remember, “smartness” is not only about how much you know, it is also about how much good you do with what you know.
