1 Timothy 2:8-15  "The Family in Worship"

In this text Paul discusses the place of men and women in public worship.  I know this is a very touchy subject in our culture today.  Many think Paul is a woman hater and should not be listened to while others just gloss over what Paul says.  I believe that Paul, who was inspired by the Holy Spirit, is saying in this passage of scripture that worship is to be orderly; that there is no room for chaos in a worship service.  Because God has set up men to lead, they should lead in the church.  The biggest problem in the church today is that many men sit on the side line and women take leadership roles, because men will not.  I hope this text helps you see that men need to take leadership in the church very seriously and do as the Lord asks.
