|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Two, Lesson Four
AUTHORITY PRESCRIBED Page
** Women within the church are hereby protected from the cultural practice of exclusion and are welcomed into the assembly of worshippers. Their role being prescribed by God Himself as one of a learner or disciple, how are they to fulfill that role? What two parameters does Paul place upon how they are to learn Gods word?
V.12 ** This passage has proven to be one of the most controversial subjects within all of Scripture, both then and now. What Paul had just said in verse 11 could have been misunderstood, so he takes the time to explain exactly what he meant by women remaining quiet within the church service. Did he mean that a woman was not allowed to speak while at church?
** Which two activities does the Spirit of God prohibit for women within the corporate worship time of the church?
** When Paul said, I do not allow, was he just expressing a personal bias against women?
