Just answer the questions, Bill. Explain why you posted that verse in this thread.

Beyond that, I'm wondering how his wife or daughters (if he has either) would feel about him posting something like that.

Devil,

There you go again assuming the 1 was you



Stocking,

There you go assuming also. What that means is that women can't be a minister in a church and teach men but they can teach women and children. But I did lead you to the water which confirms my opinion of you.

I'm not the one stirring up trouble with foolish statements I quote directly from the bible if you have a problem with that take it up with God. If you have legitimate questions I'll answer to the best of my ability. Don't accuse me of what you are doing I won't disrespect GOD's WORD as you seem to do.

Remember the "Promise Keepers?"

"They still base much of their belief that a man should be the head of the family on Ephesians 5:23:"For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church..." (NIV). PK has recently been downplaying the matching verse 22 which states: "Wives submit to your husbands, as to the Lord" (NIV).

There are some direct Bible quotes, Bill. Do you believe them? Are you one of them "Promise Keepers?"

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it.” (Ephesians 5:25)

Stockingful,

I believe what the bible says not what some misdirected man came up with the "promise keepers" an organized religion.
Again you bait me. Your in no way going to shake my faith.

So, Stephen, are you saying verse 25 trumps verse 22? Or that husbands should love their (submissive, obedient) wives? ;)

You may be quoting directly from the Bible, but there are a tremendous number of passages YOU could have chosen to post in this thread. God didn't decide that one needed to be quoted here......YOU DID!
(be an honest man & answer stockingful's question: If it was not selected & intended as an insult to tvb, why did you select THAT ONE?......If it was meant as an insult...be a man & admit it!)

I do love my wife and 3 daughters and yes after we discuss an issue in agreement or not somebody has to make a decision and the bible gives me the final authority. And my wife willingly agrees to that not because I want her to but because God commands it.

Bill, just because the questions aren't easy doesn't mean they're coming from the devil (not our beloved "Devil", the real one).

The tough questions are there to test your understanding of what you contend is "God's word."

If you duck them, you're abandoning the "safe harbor" you claim the great book provides.

What happens if you're wrong, Bill? Does she get to give you one of these? :bop:

Devil,

I was waiting for a bite and proving that some people wrest with Gods word and wala look what came out of the wood work.
And what about the other scriptures I put out there I still waiting for a response on them. There are people that think they know scripture and this proves that point they don't

... and the Taliban believe that God commands them to blow up Americans and other infidels. There isn't much of a difference.
