How does the "And if they will learn any thing" relate to 'speaking in tongues'? Is speaking in tongues a learning subject and the husband must be capable of teaching his wife about it?
Why would Paul single out the women on this subject matter?
The local church is primary a place where Christians can meet together to be taught the Word of God.
I can WORSHIP God anytime and anyplace.
I can FELLOWSHIP with God and fellow believers anytime and anyplace.
"I worship God up at the Church house the same as I worship Him down at my house.
I worship God down at my house the same as I worship Him up at the Church house."
The term 'old paths' is a misnomer as used in todays IFB circles.
My old paths would be in the 50s and 60s.
The old paths for the 50s and 60s IFB; would be the time preceding their time.
The true Old Paths would be those created by Jesus and walked by Apostle Paul.
Want to find the Old Paths......Read the Bible
Thought to Ponder. If time exist long enough; We will be looked upon as the Old Path.
Not much. There is really only one old path: the one that Jesus made for us.
If one doesn't like the leadership.....talk to the leader and if he still doesn't like it....move on down the road instead of causing discord among the brethren.
Personally; the only leader I have is my Pastor.
II Corth 7:14 is a road well worn within the IFB circle; by trying to apply it to our present day.
1. God will not heal the United States of America; which should be evident by the fact that we are very close to the Rapture.
2. God deals with us today as individuals; He dealt with the people of Israel as a nation.
Now if ALL Americans will humble themselves, pray and seek God's face; ONLY then will I change my mind.
