1 Corinthians 16 – Closing Comments

1 Corinthians 16:1-4 – Note there is no discussion here as to if there should be a collection, that was assumed. This concerned how they should collect it. That means that taking a collection is compulsory, right? Wrong. They could have had the discussion about if a collection was needed or required at another time. My point is that we must be careful what, we read into the text. I started typing this assuming that the collection was assumed, but realized that wasn’t necessarily correct. (Of course, Jesus and other parts of scripture clearly teach that giving is assumed, but this passage doesn’t do it by itself.)
1 Corinthians 16:12 – What, disagreement among leaders and no division? What a concept!
