PETER: It's a new world order my Lord, and with the Romans pushing sodomy we can hardly get left behind. The culture moves on and so must we.

THE LORD: My kingdom is not of this world. Who said anything about compromise. I affirmed the Torah about male and female, I have not changed my mind.

Paul was an educated Jew, a sharp upgrade on 12 fishermen, the early disciples of Jesus. He would be charged with taking the gospel to the Gentiles and in doing so it demanded that he would need to know who he was talking to, and, while maintaining his complete and total Jewishness, erudite pedagogical learning and birth, he would have to adapt all his learning to his audience within the context of his hearers.
