What do you think of 1 Timothy 2:12? (NIV)


"I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[a] she must be quiet." Do you find any parts of the bible to be sexist? or Do you believe God has his reasons?

    In most religions (women were not allowed to be educated). The vast majority of women are regulated as helpmates, mothers, or harlots. You'd never hear of a queen with 700 husbands and 300 boy toys via King Solomon. Women are better off today.

    Very true! The Bible contains a variety of 66 books written by approximately 45 different writers over a span of about 1200 years. All written by (men). Clearly this had some bearing on how most women were portrayed.

    FatFreddysCat, There's also Proverbs 21:19 (NIV)

    "Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife." LOL!

    I didn't think it was a coincidence that there were no female prophets! :)

    Anyone who studies the history of how the bible was actually "put together" during the canonization process isn't likely to assume it's all "factual".

    Even today the Roman Catholic Church does not allow a woman to become a Priest or a Pope. It's kind of an outdated sexist rule. The CEO of General Motors is a woman. The next U.S. president may in fact be a woman.
