Super Quick Bible Study: Paul Has Been Misunderstood

2 Peter 3:16 [Paul] writes this way in all his letters, speaking in them about such matters. Some parts of his letters are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.

And they still are! This is why we need to pray before, during, and after reading Scripture, in particular Paul’s letters. Remember, we are only getting fractions of the actual conversation (in fact, where are the letters he was responding to?)

For example, I could argue Paul overgrew his aversion to women teaching, since he heaped praises on women in Philemon 1:2 and Romans 16 (his last letter). How do we know if it was either his opinion (not of Yah), or a response to the behavior of former pagans? Take everything, everything, to the Father in the earnest seeking of truth. How many believers actually do that?
