God's word is true...
5 Every word of God proves true;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 Do not add to his words,
lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you.
What is a paradigm?
a typical example or pattern of something; a model.
Paradigms effect the way that we view evidence and the world around us.
How would a paradigm of a creationist be different than that of someone who believes in evolution? Young earth versus old earth? How would this effect how they view evidence?
Can Women Speak?
1 Corinthians 14:34
34 Women[f] should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. 35 If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.[g]
1 Timothy 2:11-12
1. Pray for understanding
2. Read in context
3. Look for agreement (God's Word does not contradict itself)
4. Read multiple translations and even look at words original meaning (meaning)
