The Voice: Part 8
“If the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?”(1 Corinthians 14:8)
Paul is writing about the importance of interpretation following an utterance in tongues: without interpretation there is no understanding and so nobody can say “Amen”. Troops on a battle field need a clarion call to summon and direct them; no clear call, no battle readiness. It may sound somewhat strident, but trumpet blasts calling troops to war are strident by their very nature. In this installment of “The Voice” I believe I must now address an issue that is blasting at me and challenging me at the personal level.
