So while reading the word yesterday I was struck by how confused I was. Am I supposed to be so confused? I found myself thinking like Riley, my favorite character in the National Treasure movies. He is frustrated after the movie has been going for about an hour and they have been through a lot only to find out that what they have found is only another clue leading to another clue leading to the treasure.
He says "what?! Another clue?! Why couldn't they just say "Go to this place, here's the treasure spend it wisely?"
Sometimes that is how I wish the bible was. Here's the guidelines, follow them wisely. I was reading 1 Corinthians about how women should keep their head covered and how man was not created for woman but woman for man. Then it throws a verse in there and says "because of the angels". What the heck? I don't get it. I really like Matthew 5. Very straight forward. I am currently studying in Luke...also nice and straight forward. I wish I were smarter and didn't have the Riley Poole brain!
