Letting the word speak 1 Corinthians 11:

Back to Home page I will cut and paste from my on line Bible. If you use the Hebew names and titles please just change them as you read.

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. - 1Jo 2:27

Instead of cutting verses from this chapter to prove a point, as some do, all of 1 Cor. 11: will be here to read. It really starts up in chapter 10: You draw your own conclusions from the written Word lead by the Holy Spirit.

Get a piece of paper and write down the following points in the chapter to see all the conditions, who, why, when, if, comparisons, and the final conclusion of it all. The married woman and her husband is who it is talking to. When she is to do it. Why she is to do it. Who takes note of it. What the Heavenly Father takes note of. Pauls final conclusion.
