09.05.2016 – New Testament: 1Co 14.34–35
To read the Bible in a year, read First Corinthians 14.21–40 on September 5, In the year of our Lord 2016
By Don Ruhl
Have you noticed that the Bible cares nothing for political correctness? To prove that, observe this passage and guess the reaction of the world, and even of many who claim to follow the teachings of the Scriptures,
Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church (1 Corinthians 14.34–35).
The context shows that women are not allowed to lead in the worship services. This is a stumbling-block for much of the Western World right now, but the Holy Spirit does not bend to the will of men and women.
- How do you react to that passage?
