Will it please you to answer me this and to give me a rule for then I will willingly submit to any truth.
I conceive there lies a clear rule in Titus that the elder women should instruct the younger and then I must have a time wherein I must do it.
As I understand it, laws, commands, rules and edicts are for those who have not the light which makres plain the pathway.
As I do understand it, laws, commands, rules and edicts are for those who have not the light which makes plain the pathway. He who has God's grace in his heart cannot go astray.
If any come to my house to be instructed in the ways of God what rule have I to put them away? Do you think it not lawful for me to teach women and why do you call me to teach the court?
If you look upon the rule in Titus it is a rule to me. If you convince me that it is no rule I shall yield.
