    • Shadows, you have asked this question repeatedly for pages now lol.  I too would like someone who insists the cultural argument is wrong, to answer plainly if they take this verse so literally, then do they permit women to speak at all in church?  I can't imagine.  
    • Well, the analysis can't be scripture can it? Otherwise all there would be is scripture. 
    • And then inchrist says this: This is hardly a scholarly approach. Sometimes when people complain about something they don't like about another, there are two things are at work: They are actually complaining about something they see in themselves reflected in another, and, They are at the same time putting themselves above another by putting the other person down. Both cases are examples of unchecked ego, and I have learned this applies to me as well.  Whenever we compare ourselves out from others, we also destroy any unity in that group. When we look at the sequence-of-events presented in the parallel accounts within the book of Revelation, there is no 1:1 correlation to a literal basis for applying the Appointed Times to the end-times in terms of 10 literal days when the first Woe alone takes five months! This is an ultra-literal approach, which is just as fallacious as taking literal events figuratively; when Paul explicitly warns us against doing so.  Along with taking everything literal figuratively, it is not so much that each is wrong, but that these are examples of using the wrong tool to interpret and force an eschatological view onto Scripture.  Then, the person dictating using a hammer when a polishing cloth is needed, insists that only the hammer be used.  So discernment is the byword in knowing which tool to use, and by examining which interpretation tool we're using we can see how that shapes the interpretation thereof. There is, however, a very strong correlation between the sequence of the Appointed Times of the Fall Festivals to the sequence-of-events I have found in compiling end-time linear prophetic narratives. This is quite in line with what Paul is saying in Colossians.  Like the first century Jewish wedding festival, and the agricultural methods of harvesting implicit in Appointed Times, the Festivals themselves lend added meaning, order, pattern, and examples for us in discerning the nature of God's Plan.  
    • The bible says a woman should remain silent in church. I Cor 13:34 the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. Do the women at your church speak after they have crossed the threshold of the church?
    • I can not believe that so many of you are missing the true meaning of these verses.    As I said in an early post, Paul is addressing the issue of people coming to church and taking Holy Communion because they are hungry instead of the way Jesus intended it to be taken. Paul is telling them to eat at home so they do not fall into the sin of taking Communion in an unworthy manner.   What has happen here tho is that someone pulled out one verse and ran with it without reading the rest of the verses or giving real thought to what Paul was talking about.
