<quoted text>Interpretation of this passage is typically considered complex.[7] N.T. Wright says that 1 Timothy 2 is the "hardest passage of all" to exegete properly.[8] A number of interpretive approaches to the text have been made by complementarians and egalitarians. Vital to remember is that this writing is only one side of a letter written by Paul, and directed at a particular group. Therefor, interpretations are limited to one sided information with no record of the associated correspondence to which Paul was responding. Forming a conclusion on such limited information will be empirically impossible. Best practice would be to place Paul's letters into context with the Torah which he declared to love. The following is a collections of opinions.
Egalitarian and complementarian interpretive approaches to the text typically take the following forms.
Socio-cultural: egalitarians argue that the text was intended for a specific socio-cultural environment which no longer exists and that the text is therefore not relevant to modern churches[9](typically rely heavily on historical reconstructions using extra-biblical sources); complementarians argue that the socio-cultural environment (while relevant), does not restrict the application of the verse to a specific time and place in the past[10]
Lexical: egalitarians argue that the meaning of the key word in the text, authente&#333;, does not support the exclusion of women from authoritative teaching positions in the congregation;[11] complementarians argue that the meaning of this word in its context indicates that Paul did not wish women to have authority over men in the church[12]
Hermeneutical: egalitarians argue that the text was intended only to limit women for a specific temporary duration, or that it was intended only to limit uneducated women who were unfit to speak in the congregation;[13] complementarians argue that hermeneutical considerations indicate the text is universal in its application to Christian congregations[14]

Waco, I have no idea what your dissabilty is but when pukes like repub speak to the dissabled this way my blood boils. My baby brother suffered with spinal meningitis from six months to thirteen years and then past away. It hits a nerve deep within. I have no respect for those who disrespect the dissabled.
Allen, you have shared your story of a family member with disabilities, Arnold also has and I, too, have a brother with disabilities. I have no time for ANYONE that is so pathetic that stooping to pick on persons with disabilities is fair game. My gosh, 4 and 5 year old children know that's unacceptable, so clearly we're with dealing with a man with the maturation and intelligence of a 3 year old. If only this person and notice I don't call him a man because he's not a man to me, could only understand how much love people with disabilities can bring to a family. Unlike him, they don't judge, they don't make fun, they somehow manage to love even people as underserving as him. Truly they have a greater insight into what matters and what doesn't than those of us without disabilities.

Mike....you seem to be a bit of a misogynist yourself.To be frank....and you will of course disagree...you seem to exhibit hostility to women on this forum frequently.Admittedly this is subjective.Seems to me you've always been harsher on the ladies.Mike, Topix does not show the real person.For instance you are quite wrong about Bacon not being a lady.Bacon has endured much.

"nothing"is a relative term in science. There is no absolute "nothing" that has ever been observed.

What religion claims is to 'know' in absolute terms where all came from, yet they have absolutely zero evidence to support the claim.

Also, if you believe god created all,then god must have created cancer.

What you are doing is, filling a gap of knowledge with a god. That is exactly how all gods were invented by man.

My atheism, or lack of belief in a god, does not require me to know all answers to all questions.

She copied and pasted that entire post.

So do you agree it was good to keep women from teaching men in biblical times?

I would love to hear the logic behind this blind belief.
Were the women all stupid back then? Tell us, please, what was the beauty of that misogyny?

Thanks for telling us your perception.
So by your reasoning, a woman automatically becomes a lady by enduring much?
I do not excuse poor behavior with such reasoning. I hold all accountable for their actions. Just as I have done with you.

So he created your mental illness, hurricane Sandy, Spinal meningitis, AIDS, the black plague, Katrina, and the Tsunami's, by this reasoning. Yet you love this being for causing even though he caused all this suffering?

It is as if their is no god at all.

Do you have any evidence for your absolute claim?

Emlu, for years I blamed God for my brohters condition. I prayed over him daily, that God would allow him to speak or just be able to get up and take a step and he never did. Shortly after his death he began to come to me in dreams but he was just as normal as you and I. That's when I realized that God had afterall answered my prayers. I consider myself blessed to have had him as part of my life only if it was for a short while! Guess God needed him more!

Sure, you first. Prove there isn't a God. And not with a question answering a question either Miley.

When you can prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that several million people are under some sort of delusional idea of blind faith in a God that doesn't exsist, I will provide all relevant documentation you need for FEMA replacing homes after Katrina.

Good luck Miley. No pressure.

Mike you can hold anyone you wish accountable for anything you wish.YOU doing that means nothing at all to anyone but yourself.Bacon is a woman and a lady.You are a bully and a cretin.Subjective on my part? Sure.But I'm comfortable with that.You have a rather low opinion of many of us here on Topix.We will just have to live with that.

If it was not mysogyny, then tell us just why it was good to keep women from teaching men in biblical times?

Misogyny (/m&#618;&#712;s&# 594;d&#658;&#618;ni/) is the hatred or dislike of women or girls. According to feminist theory, misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including sexual discrimination, denigration of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification of women.[1][2] Misogyny has been characterised as a prominent feature of the mythologies of the ancient world as well as various religions. In addition, many influential Western philosophers have been described as misogynistic.[1] The male counterpart of misogyny is misandry, the hatred or dislike of men; its antonym is philogyny, the love or fondness of women.
