Discussion for 1 Corinthians 14

  • A disciple
    "Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaks a barbarian, and he that speaks shall be a barbarian unto me." The Lord gave four examples of the kinds of hearts men have with respect to hearing and receiving His Word. The examples all came out of the individuals' own making of what kind they would be; for God's will is clearly for ALL of them to have been saved.

    Wayne; God commanded the woman to be under obedience and subjection to her husband in Genesis 3:15 directly after pronouncing to the serpent his eternal condemnation and the breaking of his head by the coming of Christ. The Western Churches are in disobedience to this Word because of rebellious worldly influences and thinking they're above such things, thus opening the door to more and more evil.
  • Wayne
    While the woman preacher was in full control and full authority, all things were done in an orderly manner. Also decent manner. That's quite a broad statement about most western churches. Unless you've visited most western churches.

    5:43 I AM COME IN MY FATHERS NAME AND --- YOU RECEIVE ME NOT --- IF ANOTHER SHALL COME IN HIS OWN NAME HIM YOU WILL RECEIVE JOHN 14:15 ---IF YOU LOVE ME---KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS 1 CORINTHIANS 16:22 IF ANY MAN LOVE NOT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST LET HIM BE ANATHEMA MARANATHA ACTS 20:30 ALSO OF YOUR OWN SELVES SHALL MEN ARISE SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS TO DRAW AWAY DISCIPLES AFTER THEM
  • A disciple
    The Law for the women to keep silence and be obedient was commanded by the LORD God in Eden because of the woman's being beguiled by the devil. All things decently and in order, is the right way for Christians to conduct themselves; both at home and their usual surroundings, and in Assembly. Most all of the Western Churches however have abandoned modesty and orderly conduct for worldly influences.

    Had a woman preacher in a church on west coast who lead the congregation for 20 years. Highly respected and loved by all.
