The Right Answer

In my previous post I discussed some teachers asking the wrong question, but have I really helped anyone if I do not try to provide the right answer.

What’s the right answer:

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Luke 6:46 KJV

If women are not supposed to speak in Church how can I teach them? First, no man can give women the permission to speak in Church. If it is a shame for women to speak in Church then all they can do is participate in their shame. Women are instructed to ask questions of their husband at home. What if they aren’t married? I suppose they could write their question on a piece of paper and hand it to the preacher/teacher or they could ask their father at home. I believe the Lord himself will teach you if you pray and read the Holy Bible.

What about Roman’s 16:17-18? If God says avoid someone, then you should avoid them, you don’t ask how can I teach them and try to circumvent the word of God. Are you wiser than God? In another place it says, Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Galatians 6:1 KJV

The Right Question

Twice now I have heard preachers and teachers ask the wrong question.

If women should not speak in Church how then can I teach them? 1 Corinthians 14:34-35.

If we are to separate ourselves from those that cause division how can I teach them? Romans 16:17-18.

The correct question is not how can I fulfill my own desire, but how can I keep the word of the Lord? The desire to teach may seem Holy, but any answer that moves you away from keeping God’s word is incorrect.
