BibleStudyTools.com: What does 1 Corinthians 14 mean when it says that women are to keep silent in the church?-Bryan Chapell

There is no record of Priscilla preaching in any public setting.

Hmmm. So, since it was written to the Corinthians, it doesn't apply to us? Then that would mean the teaching in chapter 11 about the Lord's Supper isn't for us, nor is the teaching in chapter 15 about the resurrection. That was just for the Corinthians. Pick and choose, pick and choose. Just take what you like, and reject what isn't convenient.

Are you suggesting that God means what He plainly says???? Heretic! ;-)

If it means that women are not to speak with authority, why does it spell out that they are not even to ask questions? Is asking questions "speaking with authority"? Clearly not. The Bible doesn't say that women are to "support their husbands in that role", it plainly says that they are to OBEY. It's very comfortable to reinterpret the Bible to accommodate the culture, but we don't find truth that way.

There's nothing in the Word of God that is merely cultural, merely temporary. If there is, we don't have a divine revelation.

34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak ; but they are commanded to be under obedience , as also saith the law. 35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

1 Corinthians 14 mean when it says that women are to keep silent in the church. I think you are right, not as authority in the Church or home but we all forget God that made man made woman also Paul statement was for the people in Corinthians but we all not in Corinthians, many places in the people ref to situation in that cities not to our present generation, they ask to take example not to applied it our present generation because, so many people has taking advantage of this in churches at large. I stop here.

I love my wife ,but then sometimes her mouth gets her into trouble. ( ah well so does mine) we should all put a watch on what we say. We dont always have to speak even when we have a great idea.

Don't you have authority over pawpaw?

Debbie....was fun to read in your post that women sat on one side of church and men on other....At Big Creek Presbyterian Church here in Rensselaer the divider is still in place...not observered but still there.

I think you need to study it out a bit. Back when that was written, women sat on one side of the church and men sat on the other. Women tried to ask their husbands questions from across the room if they didn't hear what was said. If women couldn't be preachers, then what about the story of Aquilla and Pricilla? They were found to be equals at preaching the word. When Jesus first appeared after His resurrection He appeared to a woman first. But...the woman is not supposed to usurp authority over a man!

In other words, women are not to preach or teach men, because men are the preachers teachers of the word, by God's authority, right?
