    Romans 9:12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 1 Timothy 5:1 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father and the younger men as brethren. 1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble

    Verse 12: There can be many good things learned from the example of wise young ones. We should not look down on younger ones just because of their age.
  • Ray321
    This chapter sounds like today. Lest and lest people are getting married. 1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. It better to marry then to burn Paul said.

    As it plainly states in verse 1 that is a "doctrine of devils".
  • A disciple
    "Forbidding to marry" - Imposed celibacy cannot give a man the grace of self control, without having determined in his own mind by the Spirit to keep the body under. Jesus' first miracle was to turn water into wine at a Wedding Feast. When the disciples said to Him, "...its better not to marry;" He answered straight and simple, so as to leave it up to each one to decide for himself what was best.
  • A disciple
    "having their conscience seared with a hot iron" What happens in the conscience of those who get into a fornication relationship is very evident! How many there are who have some Bible upbringing, and have rebelled! How many have we found, who have chosen to live together unmarried, or pursue a lifestyle of promiscuity, that are hateful and hostile to the words of Jesus! How'd they get there!
