60IN60 Day 48 - Sat Jun 21

It's Day 48 and we're in 1 Samuel 11.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 6 - There are things that should move us to righteous anger.  We are too often angry over petty things and not often enough angry over injustice.

- Verse 3 - Why they allowed them to do this is beyond me.  Maybe it was the custom in war of that day.
- Verse 10 - Yes, they lied.
- Verse 12 - Suddenly Saul is popular, whereas originally there were some who questioned him as the choice.  People overreacted and wanted to kill those who'd questioned him.  It was a mob mentality, not a God thing.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions:
- "I do not understand tongues..Paul says (vs. 6)...what profits to me if you speak in tongues...(vs. 9) if words are not easy to understand it will be like spoken into the air...(22) tongues is a sign to unbelievers ..." - This would be like what you see in some Pentecostal churches today - it's like a private prayer language or speaking in a language you don't know.  It was a special manifestation of Spirit back then.  Paul's argument is that they should keep speaking in tongues private unless there was an interpreter for the unknown tongue (which also required a special gift of the Spirit).
- "(34) women keep silent in church .... I think that means ONLY disruptive women or all women?" - There are a variety of interpretations to this: a. A few think this means that all women should be silent in church; b. Some think this only refers to Corinth because the women were being really disruptive, so trouble-making women should be quiet; c. Some think that this passage is relevant only to Corinth and has no say over anyone today.  I'm in the c camp.
- "what is meant in 15:6....greater part remain?" - The majority of the people who had the risen Jesus were still alive at the time of Paul writing this.

Your Comments:
