3 dangers in Interpreting 1 Timothy 2
Posted By : Date : Krish Kandiah | 08-23-2014
3 dangers with interpreting this passage As a young Christian, I became convinced of a complementarian position when it came to women in leadership. In any argument 1 Timothy 2:11-12 was my trump card. It was so clear that anyone who disagreed was clearly denying the authority of scripture and was driven by a culture-pleasing and ultimately liberal agenda.
