Much of modern misogyny in the church can be attributed to Paul’s comments on women in the Bible. But is misogyny really what Paul intended to communicate? In today’s podcast, I take a look at Paul’s comments in 1 Corinthians 11 and sort out what’s at the heart of his message. As it ends up, from a cultural perspective he is simply trying to establish order in light of creation, cosmology and science. All three of these points go over the heads of modern people because we think entirely different on all three subjects. Therefore, we can only truly understand what Paul is saying by getting into a head 2,000 years older than ours.
BONUS: Today I led worship with a foot pedal and a violinist. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do on the level that I did today, so check out the video above for the full service.
