Intro -In chapters 11-14 the apostle is dealing with 3 issues in public worship which people find offensive -Head covering, the Lord's supper and the use of spiritual gifts
-Scripture should always be approached with an open mind
1 The Supposed Difficulties Of The Passage -Most modern commentaries say that this passage is difficult but the Greek words used are plain -They just don't want the plain meaning as this would go against feminism and so sell less books
2 The Difficulties Are Made Up By Humans as an Excuse For Their Disobedience -One possible difficulty they create is the cultural argument
3 The Cultural Interpretation Is A False Interpretation -Why? -You with your human mind have to decide what is cultural and what isn't -This is liberalism -A view held by unbelievers
4 The True Interpretation -GOD speaks to be understood -He doesn't make things overly complicated -Every word is inspired by the Spirit of GOD -It is to the Church in all ages and cultures
