The Bible teaches in 1 Peter 5:5 that the younger men should submit to the older ones. What does the bilble mean by young or old in that passage? Does it mean young and old biologically, or young and old in a spiritual sense? -- Karel (Suriname)
I think he is speaking of the elders of the church (the overseers, the shepherds). So the strict answer to your question is biologically. A major reason we submit to them is their wisdom, which has come with years of life, not just Christian experience or leadership.
