    The question is Why do you think Paul addressed the behavior of women in church?
  • Michael Little
    Paul is telling the Women she should stay in her lane, But with out Women where would man Be in this world today. GOD gave man Woman for a reason. A help meet Mate.

    "...in due time..." Paul alone is apostle to the Gentiles that's us , to testify "in due time" that the Father made the Son to be the ransom for all our sins by faith in His blood, without works. That's why, through Paul, Christ said His blood is shed for all while earlier He'd said He was sent to NONE but the lost sheep of Israel. Paul revealed truths from Christ that had been hidden in God.

    Please allow me to submit this Word of God: Galatians 3:28(NIV), "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

    1 Timothy 2:5 reminds us of the words that Jesus spoke to his disciples in John 14:6 - "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." When Timothy refers to Jesus as a "mediator", he is once again telling us that Jesus is the only one that works to effect reconciliation and settlement between God and Men. Sinful and wicked Man can never expect to be in the presence of the Holy Father because the gulf between Man and God is great due to our sin. Jesus bridges that gulf for those who believe in Him and are cleansed of sin to enter Heaven through His Grace and Forgiveness.

    The Only Way to be Accepted is by The Blood of The Lamb. Mother Teresa will be Cast into The Lake of Fire if not Covered by The Blood of God's Son /There's a Way which Seemeth Right unto Man But The End thereof are The Ways of Death. Proverbs 14:12
  • BECKY kOILE
    I BELIEVE THE WAY TIMMOTHY 2 READS WE SHOULD LIVE THAT WAY IN ORDER TO BE ACCEPTED BY GOD AND THIS WILL GIVE THE RIGHT EXAMPLY TO OTHERS THAT MAY NOT READ ANY AT ALL.
  • Eutychus
    "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence." Yet Joel 2:28 says, "your daughters shall prophesy", which Peter quotes in Acts 2:17-18. To prophesy, according to 1 Cor 14:3, is to "speak unto men to edification." So it isn't so much the women speaking, but in what constitutes 'church' and authority in God's eyes. More on that in 2 weeks: stay tuned.
  • Eutychus
    Vs 5. "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." Where then, is the priest? WE are the priests!! "Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an HOLY PRIESTHOOD, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, accept to God by Jesus Christ". 1 Peter2:5, and, "But ye are a chosen generation, a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, an HOLY NATION.." 1 Pet 2:9. What a concept!!!
  • A disciple
    "Comfort the feeble-minded, support the weak, warn the unruly..." Luke 13:23-29 the Lord declares plainly, as in MANY, MANY places; that not everyone who says to Him, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father." Not the hearers are justified, but the doers! God is not tricked by lip service! If any man have not the Spirit of Christ he is none of His.
  • Bob Berney
    The doctrine of eternal security or as they say Once saved Always saved is a solid Bible doctrine. Such as the sure mercies of David, Paul says in Colossians the operation of the separation the soul from the flesh and such but remember it is Not OUR salvation it is The Lord’s salvation he provided for us. Eternal Security can be summed up in one word: Circumcision. Study to show thyself . . .
  • SaraS
    Hi Bob, Yes! Our salvation in Christ and gift of eternal has been made sure - Jesus is triumphant! And, the Lord expects us to walk in His ways and keep His commandments. Only the overcomers will "walk with Him in white," "Eat of the tree of life," "Sit down on His throne," Eat of the hidden manna," etc. Revelation 1-3, 21:7-9.
  • Estil pruitt
    usurp means to override the men in church''a woman is not the husband of one wife;;let her teach her kids at home how to live ''because the man was to be working in fields or out doing gods work and prophesy means to fortell something and my man the bible has done been prophesied from beginning to end
  • A disciple
    "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority;" It is a strong desire of a righteous man or woman to see that mercy and truth, righteousness and peace, preside over the land and in the hearts of our Countrymen. Here is our patience and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ proven!
  • A disciple
    HI GREG; I'M GLAD WE HAVE THINGS LIKE LG. CAPS AND READING GLASSES FOR OUR AGING EYES:) I AM THANKFUL WITH YOU; JESUS LOVED US AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR US, AND DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS, AND HAS PAID THE DEBT BY HIS OWN BLOOD. AMEN! I JUST WANT TO ADD; DON'T LET ANYONE (MAN OR SPIRIT) TELL YOU THAT YOU SIN EVERY DAY, IF YOU REALLY DON'T! JESUS HAS CLEANSED US AND BROKEN THE POWER OF SIN OVER US!
  • Greg ormsbee
    SORRY FOR CAPS I SEE BETTER WITH THEMY, I AM NOT A BELIEVER OF ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED. I DO BELIEVE JESUS DIED FOR US, BUT SOUNDS DOES SATAN. WE ARE TO LIVE LIKE JESUS TAUGHT ON THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT. WE ALL SIN, JESUS IS THE EXAMPLE AN OUR SAVIOR, THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR GUIDE, AND WEARE TO TRY AN DONATIONS GOOD, ALL GLORY GOING TO HIM. REPENTANCE IS STILL THERE, BETWEEN YOU AN CHRIST. GODBLESS
  • Inacostlow

    "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus " In the exhortation is the answer for all of us who profess faith in God and love for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: namely, that God wills for all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth: and while there are so many voices in the world all screaming for attention yet to us there is but One Voice Who would that all men be saved, and Who has commanded us to pray and to give thanks for them all. We must not let ourselves be deceived and drawn away by the voices of politics, or celebrity, or any of the things that the people of the world look to for their guidance, identity, purpose and righteousness, instead of Christ. There is no wisdom outside the Word of God and there is no other Saviour but Jesus. We must therefore see people like our Father sees them, and be not entangled in the affairs and the fears and politics of a world that is about to be destroyed and taken away for ever. For His ways and His thoughts are far above what any of them know. One is our Master and Leader, and we ALL are brethren!
  • Carl Pope
    You are right, I tell my wife, who has difficulties,that we are saved, we are His,He died and rise to ascend after a time, to His Father's right hand. We are to live as His witness to others of his great love for us, and know He wants to be near to us daily, intimately as our God.
  • Rev Franklin Miller
    In Verse 12, Paul was addressing the women in this fashion because they were most likely disrupting the services because of questions. He said later on that they were to ask their husbands at home. Also you cannot usurp authority as a woman IF you are asked to teach, preach, evangelize, or even Pastor a church. Usurp means to commandeer or do something w/o the right to do so. I pray this helps you
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    Man saved or lost CANT tell you to preach or not to preach. God told me to tract I want to pastor instead. The holy ghost is not in me pastoring it's tracting. I OPEN THE DOOR AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT I CLOSE THE DOOR AND NO MAN CAN OPEN IT. One way or another you WILL do what God calls you to do
  • A disciple
    Renna; All of Paul's writings were the Word of God and the Spirit speaking through him. We cannot say, This was Paul speaking, and this was God speaking; and so think that one we can leave as man's opinion and the other as God's command. We should not be overreaching through this Word; for women may certainly preach and prophesy and sing their poetry to praise the LORD; but not dominate the men!
  • Renna Damon
    Who is the 'I' in vs. 12? When in the chapter did Paul begin to speak for God? I do not wish to preach but I am called to teach. My pastor has informed me that I can not teach in our church because of this scripture. He also said that I may not read the poetry God has given me because it is preaching. I can sing it but I can't read it. reply p

    1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Amen
  • BSP
    Verse 14: Adam was not deceived, but he willingly disobeyed Jehovah God and ate the forbidden fruit.
  • Lu2677
    I am thankful that God has given me a heart to seek his wisdom, and not the wisdom of men.
    Those that walk in the light, love the light, they love words that edify. Those that walk in darkness, hate the light, they love words that destroy, and bring wrath.
  • Lu2677
    Genesis 3:15-19 Your response is very sad to me. Getting kicked out of the beautiful Garden, sweating over the ground (planting) death, pain in child birth, women desiring to rule over men, Verse says, God says he cursed Adam and Eve, and all of mankind born after them, (born in sin) death, is part of it. Yet, you say, God did not curse Adam and Eve. I guess you do not believe what God says.
  • A disciple
    The woman was not cursed, nor the man; but the serpent! Read the account again please! God listened to the confession and witness of Adam and his wife, and pronounced doom upon the serpent for what he had done; declaring that Christ would come in the flesh and "break his head" through His own sacrifice of Himself into the hands of the devil's seed. The ground was cursed; not the man nor his wife.
  • Lu2677
    Cheryl Dawn 1Timothy 2:14 "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Genesis 3:17 He said to Adam,"because you have hearkened to the voice of the woman and ate of the tree,I commanded you not to eat".God cursed Eve because she allowed herself to be deceived,she followed Satan's deception instead of God's command. I hope scripture clears it up for you.

    1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
