This verse has been misinterpreted to mean that any woman who bears a child is automatically saved by virtue of the childbearing. First Timothy 2:15 is the conclusion of Paul's teaching concerning ...
The following is my opinion. I. I do not believe all women will be saved from their sins through childbearing. Salvations [spiritual salvation] are by grace, through faith, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit, according to the Scriptures, for the Glory of God. II. I do believe all women have stigma of Eve [disgrace of Eve's disobedience to God, to Adam] III. I do believe in general women will be saved from their stigma [disgrace of Eve's disobedience] through childbearing. IV. Salvation here Salvation is not only spiritual but also physical as well. Salvation from sin/death [spiritual salvation] Salvation from physically difficult situations [physical salvation] we can be saved not only from sin but also from any kinds of difficult situations; in this case, stigma of Eve; disgrace of disobedience V. Stigma of Eve [Disgrace of Disobedience] 1) All women have stigma of Eve because of Eve's original deception. Paul was saying although women in general were not deceived by serpent directly, all women are responsible for what Eve did and therefore have to take full responsibility of what Eve did. 2) Just like all [men and women] sinned in Adam, since Adam was a representative of all human kind [men and women]. 3) All women sinned in Eve, since Eve was a representative of all women in some sense, [but not men]. 4) In summary, all women have stigma of Eve. Therefore they should take full responsibility of Eve's stigma, which includes No teaching or having authority over men in the church and at home as well. 5) But women can remove their stigma of Eve through childbearing which is God's purpose for women from the beginning. Through obeying God's original purpose; childbearing [include nurturing, raising up, teaching and disciplining], God will remove women's stigma of Eve [disgrace of disobedience] [they will be saved from their stigma] Women will be the source of blessing; mother of all godly children through faith, love, holiness and self-control. In general, godly children always have godly mother occasionally godly father. We should pray for godly mother for our next generations. May God bless all women to be godly mother according to Your will and good purpose. Amen
