  1. 1 Corinthians 14:33-40 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, 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. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church. Or was it from you that the word of God came? Or are you the only ones it has reached? If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord. If anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. But all things should be done decently and in order.

  6. Cultural Argument: • Women in Corinth were uneducated like most in the ancient world • Women in Corinth were separate from men in the gathering (possibly) • Women in Corinth are asking questions in a disruptive manner (possibly across the aisles) • Women in Corinth need to be silent and in order to avoid conusion in worship

  7. Context Argument: • Women in the Corinthian Church were part of the congregation that is seeking to weigh the validity of tongues and prophesies expressed • Women in the church were speaking out and getting involved in the judging of theses gifts (possibly in a disruptive manner) • Women in the Corinthian church were in this way taking authority over the gathering • Women in the Corinthian church need to realize that this action is out of order in the worship of the church • Women in the Corinthian church need to show God’s established creative order by: • not exercising this authority in the church (be silent) AND  • expressing this order in the home as well  (ask husbands) • This is a principle that is part of God’s creative order throughout the OT (“The Law”) • Male headship in home and church is to be upheld in all the churches as an expression of God’s creative order

  15. – D.A. Carson The unleashed power of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament Spirit Filled age, must be exercised in a framework of order, intelligibility, appropriateness, dignity and peace, for that is the nature of the God we worship.

  16. – John Greenleaf Whittier Dear Lord and Father of Mankind  Dear Lord and Father of mankind, Forgive our foolish ways! Re-clothe us in our rightful mind, In purer lives Thy service find, In deeper reverence, praise. Drop Thy still dews of quietness, Till all our strivings cease; Take from our souls the strain and stress, And let our ordered lives confess The beauty of Thy peace.
