“Does 1 Peter 3:5-7 still apply to us today?”

This question came up this last Wednesday and all but derailed our practice.   At first glance some might say that is a bad thing.  However, I have believed from the beginning of this year that if any of the students began to think on, and understand the words they are memorizing they would begin to ask important questions not only about the Bible but more importantly about themselves.

As we cover this question I will be linking some short videos from teachers I have learned much from.  These first videos feature R.C. Sproul and begin the discussion at the beginning, how do we interpret the Bible.  For we cannot correctly apply what the Bible has to say to us if we do not correctly understand what it is that God is saying to us.

Again, hard questions have hard answers.  But if you really are interested in the truth, I trust you will follow through these posts to the end.

This is just the beginning of the answer, hang on through the rest of the posts to get to the final answer of whether or not 1 Peter 3:5-7 still apply to us today.

[…] You see, as a coach I try to stay at least one or two steps ahead of the quizzers, which means I try to read and question the text before I assign it.  As I read over the Scriptures my sin clouded mind often disagrees with or misunderstands certain passages and I make a note of it, and pay attention to see if any of the quizzers are paying close enough attention to what they are memorizing to stumble over and be offended by the Word of God!  This time we struck pay dirt from 1 Peter 3:7 which reads, “Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.”  Of course the main thing that the quizzer disagreed with was being identified as “the weaker partner”.  So the question came, does this verse still apply to us today?  To which I originally answered, “Should husbands not be considerate as they live with their wives today?”  And then, through several discussions about how to interpret and apply the Bible, I started to hear the Lord speaking to me!
