For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

one more paul question? what about that bit where he says women shouldn't speak in church? is there any historical context for that that might make me feel better about it?
I'm always happy to answer questions as much as I can, but I think this last one will be more difficult to answer in a way that you find satisfactory. Because this is an uneasy passage which I have never felt I have gotten a satisfactory answer to.
Citing the fact that Paul seems to be expecting women to speak in church within the contexts of prayer and even prophesy in 1 Corinthians 11, some interpreters have used 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 as a prooftext for the fact that women cannot act in the capacity of an ordained minister in church. But... this verse is couched in the middle of a passage which seems to focus on the act of prophesy rather than liturgy?
The Oxford Annotated Bible argues that this is a later addition to the text because of the way that it seems to tangentially move away from the topic presented both before and after it, and because some manuscripts have it scribbled in the margins after the end of the chapter rather than in the middle of the passage it normally appears in. Further, it is not cited by a single Apostolic Father (Abbott, 61). I'm not sure if that matters, given that it seems to have been accepted as part of the textual canon from pretty early on in the Christian tradition - the early third century, at the latest. So it feels like a cop-out to say that we don't need to take it seriously.
I think 1 Timothy 2:12, which specifies that women aren't supposed to teach or have authority over the men of the congregation, is easier to contextualize as referring specifically to the office of ordination - that very same letter provides some of the earliest evidence for Christians engaging in a liturgical tradition akin to the Jewish synagogue. But 1 Corinthians 14:34-35? I don't think I'm educated enough to explain it.

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Características de los apóstatas según la carta de Judas
#Judas 1: 4, 8, 12, 16, 18-19
La corta Epístola del Apóstol Judas nos da unas buenas pistas sobre las características que podemos encontrar en los apóstatas. Veamos las que menciona junto con el versículo bíblico de referencia para cada una.
1️⃣ Personas sin piedad, dadas al libertinaje, que niegan el señorío de Jesús
El problema es que se han infiltrado entre ustedes ciertos individuos que desde hace mucho tiempo han estado señalados para condenación. Son impíos que cambian en libertinaje la gracia de nuestro Dios y niegan a Jesucristo, nuestro único Soberano y Señor.
(Judas v.4)
Son personas astutas que se infiltran poco a poco y con mucha cautela entre los hermanos. ¿Su misión? Cautivarlos para que echen de lado la sana doctrina, sobre todo la verdad sobre la gracia de Dios manifestada por medio de Jesús. Llevan la gracia hasta un extremo tal que parece que todo es permitido. Ese extremismo en cuanto a la gracia hace que básicamente nieguen la necesidad de Jesús como Salvador y Señor.
2️⃣ Hacen lo que quieren con su cuerpo, se rebelan contra la autoridad y no respetan a los seres espirituales
De la misma manera estos individuos, llevados por sus delirios, contaminan su cuerpo, desprecian la autoridad y maldicen a los seres celestiales.
(Judas v.8)
Viven básicamente dominados por sus deseos carnales. Hacen lo que desean con su cuerpo y se dejan llevar por sus emociones. Desprecian toda autoridad humana o divina porque piensan que ya saben todo y que son los únicos dignos de liderar. Se confían tanto en sí mismos que echan de lado la posibilidad de que Dios les envíe avisos o ayuda a través de sus ángeles o que el diablo busque tentarlos y confundirlos por medio de los demonios.
3️⃣ No respetan el comportamiento cristiano, buscan su propio provecho, son inconstantes y no dan fruto
Estos individuos son un peligro oculto: sin ningún respeto convierten en parrandas las fiestas de amor fraternal que ustedes celebran. Buscan solo su propio provecho. Son nubes sin agua, llevadas por el viento. Son árboles que no dan fruto cuando debieran darlo; están doblemente muertos, arrancados de raíz.
(Judas v.12)
Se burlan del comportamiento que debe distinguir al cristiano e intentan sonsacar a los demás para que les imiten. Se las ingenian para obtener beneficio propio de todo y de todos sin importar el daño que causan a otras personas. No tienen sustancia ni son fiables. Por último, son estériles espiritualmente.
4️⃣ Se quejan, se enfadan y critican. No saben controlar sus pasiones, son arrogantes y aduladores
Estos individuos son refunfuñadores y criticones; se dejan llevar por sus propias pasiones; hablan con arrogancia y adulan a los demás para sacar ventaja.
(Judas v.16)
Son altivos y se sienten con derecho de quejarse y criticar todo. También son impulsivos, se enfadan fácilmente. Sus palabras muestran la condición real de su corazón, su arrogancia y su deseo de obtener ventaja sea como sea.
5️⃣ Los dominan sus pasiones impías, causan divisiones y no tienen el Espíritu Santo
Ellos les decían: «En los últimos tiempos habrá burladores que vivirán según sus propias pasiones impías». Estos son los que causan divisiones y se dejan llevar por sus propios instintos, pues no tienen el Espíritu.
(Judas vv.18-19)
Judas recuerda a sus lectores que los apóstoles advirtieron sobre los apóstatas que se burlan de los que viven para agradar a Dios. La iglesia debe estar muy vigilante frente a los que viven dominados por sus pasiones y que hacen lo que les place aun cuando va en contra de la voluntad de Dios.
Obviamente, esas personas causan divisiones ya que presionan a otros para que se «dejen llevar». Lo hacen porque viven bajo el mandato de sus deseos incontrolados y no están llenos del Espíritu Santo de Dios.

True love is not by any means the very simple and easy thing which it is frequently assumed to be. You cannot resolve to begin at once to be loving; you must become much that you are not, perhaps, to be so. True, it is not much to be for the most part gracious and kind and tender, to give away things, and indulge people, and think only of making them instantly comfortable; it is not much, especially for some persons— no straight gate, but a very broad, smooth way; it is their instinct, their nature— they cannot help it. One might say of them often, that they have not purity, conscience, or faith enough to be otherwise; for there is a love very pretty and pleasant, the influence and exercise of which is owing to the absence of these. But this is not ‘the end of the commandment,’ or ‘the fulfilment of the law.’ The love which Saint Paul intends and desires [all Christians to have] is love rooted in purity, rooted in conscience, and rooted in faith, one of the highest and ripest attainments of the Christian life.
James Nisbet; Church Pulpit Commentary on 1 Timothy 1:5

“Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6:17-18‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

I've shared two of my articles about my gleanings from 1 Timothy. Here's another! This one is thinking through the positive commands given to us women. If we're not supposed to gossip, be idle, or busybodies, then what do we do?

We spend a lot of time waiting for God to take action in our lives, but maybe He is waiting for us to take action. Praying for God to show us how to have a more active faith!

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.
