I can see why this needed its own thread.
I didn't know where else to put it.
This thread is worthless, let's change the subject.I heard about a study on families.If the mom is a church goer, but the dad never goes to church, only 1 in 50 children will be regular church goers when they are adults.If the dad is a church goer, but the mom never goes to church, 66% - 75% of the children will be regular church goers when they are adults.Why do you think this is? That is a massive massive difference.
Father Knows Best, obviously.
Women don't really count,,,,,,,, obviously.
Because people who go to church are on a quest to find their fathers.
The religion gene is passed down by the father.(BTW, this was a joke answer)
People are always trying to make dad proud of them. And they know mom will be more understanding if they don't follow in her footsteps.
If a child goes to church and learns that women shouldn't even speak, and he learns this lesson well, how important will he hold his mother's opinion about anything?
If the child goes to church and learns that the father is the head of the family then he will want to follow him, but then the father doesn't go to church, so the child follows his lead, which leads him to believe that the Bible isn't right about everything, so he stops blindly following the father, which leads him to listen to his mother who is going to church, so he starts going again, but then he remembers that the father is the head of the family...
Gay marriage is codifying Gods sense of humor.
Well hopefully he will go beyond the shallow understanding of your average atheist and see what the Bible actually teaches.
34 Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. 35 If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.
Let's leave Obama and Clinton out of this discussion.
Hahaha, it's funny because Bill Clinton's biological father tragically died before his son was even born! Hahaha! A real knee-slapper!
He was born as one of nine children to William Jefferson Blythe, Sr. (1884-1935), a poor farmer in Sherman, Texas, and his wife Lou Birchie Ayers (1893–1946).. In December 1935, shortly before his eighteenth birthday, he married Virginia Adele Gash. They divorced within 13 months. They had one son, Henry Leon Blythe, on January 17, 1938, who was conceived after their divorce. Henry later took the surname of his stepfather, Charles Ritzenthaler, after Gash and Blythe divorced.On December 29, 1940, Blythe married his first wife's sister, Fannie Maye Gash. This short lived marriage produced Sharon Lee Blythe (later Pettijohn), who was born on May 11, 1941.On May 3, 1941, he married for a third time in Jackson County, Missouri, to Wanetta Ellen Alexander of Kansas City. Their divorce became final on April 13, 1944.Blythe's fourth marriage took place on September 3, 1943, to Virginia Dell Cassidy. She became pregnant in late 1945, eventually giving birth to William Jefferson Blythe, later William Jefferson Clinton. Blythe died in a car crash before Bill was born, and Bill was raised by Roger Clinton, Sr.. Virginia did not learn of her husband's previous marriages until 50 years later
Does what the bible "actually" teaches have anything to do with the words actually written in it? What sort of deep understanding makes this verse support the idea that a woman's opinion has the same value as a man's?
Galatians 3:28: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
That verse has contextual meaning which clarifies it. Corinthians is a book written for instruction to pastors for their churches, and addresses specific problems some churches were having. They asked specific questions, and got specific answers. For instance one of teh questions they answered was regarding a man who was having an affair with his step mother. the answer is not to be applied to all relationships between men and women, to do so would be silly.Being so fresh from the Jewish faith, the Early Christians adopted many of the same traditions, one of which was separate sitting areas for men and women. Women would ask their husband questions about the service, and were disruptive, so they were commanded to shut their filthy mouths. In context, this verse completely has a different meaning than you are ascribing to it.But I understand why you guys like to pull it out of context. It fits your pre-conceived notions of what you already know to be true.That's why verses like this:are consistent with the message of the New Testament. One that was radically pro-women when the culture literally had women one step above property.But again, just focus on the worst possible explanation, it will be repeated over and over again by many web sites filled with all the 'proof' that the Bible is racist, sexist and supports slavery. It will be wrong, but it will give you support for your pre-conceived notions of reality.
Edit: Nope you were right...kind of:
