Why the is the "church" resisting the Truth?
2 Timothy3:8 “ Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.” Today’s men of God refuse to preach on the most flagrant act of disobedience happening in the church: woman speaking in the church. It is clearly written in the Bible :1 Corinthians 14:35 “…For it is a shame for a woman to speak in the church.” Instead of exhorting the church to obey the truth, today’s pastors come together to fight the truth. It is mind-boggling to hear what kind of reasons, those rare preachers that dare address this part of the Bible, have given for their rejection of the truth. So in their quest for riches and lust, those pastors think that this verse is written in the Bible to hate women rather than to love them. They do all these because they do not believe in Jesus. In the book of James the Bible says: “ Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and come from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness ,neither shadow of turning.” And Jesus says: “If you know the truth, the truth shall set you free.” People that are yearning for God need to demand that their leaders preach the truth. Peter says “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.”
The answer I received to that comes from Gal 3,26-29
"For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise."
I realize that in this passage, Paul does not speak directly about Church meetings but rather of Church being.
