Polygamy for male elders was strictly forbidden in the ministry of the early church. But apparently this ...

Re: 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and 1 Corinthians 14:33-40 revisited

Seems to me a wearying discussion about a subject of little to no relevance for us. The Apostles (capital "A") were commissioned directly by Jesus and had seen the Lord.

21centpilgrim, You wrote: We tend to read Matthew 2819 as current Americans with the assumption of the word ‘name’. It carries with it the description or meaning of authority, and therefore is not a proof text for the trinity like many assume. People may then reply and say that only a person has aut...
