Not a chance. Whether the master is kind or not, a slave is still a slave. A true marriage is based on partnership, mutual consent and mutual compromise, not submission. You Christians have a terrible, terrible notion of how marriage is supposed to work, and I see it time and time again in Christian households.
It's not a partnership when both parties work full time but only the woman does any of the housework, thereby coming home to more, constant work while her lazy husband and kids sit on their asses and do nothing to help. It's not a partnership when the woman of the house is treated worse than the family dog and can't sit down for five minutes to herself without her selfish husband and kids demanding her attention. It's not a partnership when the woman is trying to do something for herself like EAT and one of the kids needs something, but the man just sits there watching football, fully expecting her to take care of it because he's the man and she's the woman. This type of typical Christian mistreatment of wives and mothers is based on some outdated notion that it's "women's work" to do laundry, wash dishes and take care of the kids. These are the "Kodak moment" fathers that may as well just be sperm donors, for all the effort they put into raising their own kids. Aside from throwing their weight around to boss the kids and wife into submission every night, they contribute nothing to the upbringing.
Head of the household? No. Bully of the household, yes. And these women put up with this servitude, this belittling mistreatment, because of one line in that filthy bible you people feel the need to drag into every conversation or argument you have. These women are not happy; they are miserable...but they're too scared to get out of their situation because they have their religion telling them it's their duty./
Keep your chains far, far away from me. You can have them all. I will have a partner that treats me as an equal and an ally in all things, not one that thinks I should "submit" to him. I'm a person, not a piece of property, and only a fiend would attempt to convince anyone they're better off in servitude and would really like it with the right guy. People into BDSM use safe words and keep their roleplaying separate from their public lives; Christians do not.
"Come, be a slave...you'll love it!"
No. Your sales pitch stinks. Now stop trying to use your bible to tell us what to do with our bodies. Believe it or not, the world doesn't revolve around Christian dogma.
I agree with whay you've said, and sad but true, but once again this is Not a picture of a husband who loves his wife, as Christ loves the church. Those who do Never mention the word submit. They don't have to.

All men are selfish, self-centered, by nature, whether they claim to be Christian or not, but the closer in step a man is with His savior, the better that man will be period.

Can't blame you for not wanting part in the norm.
When God wants sooo much more for you here on earth, and a place in heaven when you die.

You said you were an atheist before converting. Atheists don`t think we are in god`s anything, because there is no god. Another lie.

It's "ironic" how you and many seem to have the same view, as I did BEFORE I was saved "born again".
I thought we were kinda like fish in God's aquarium, and the fish that swam the way He liked made it to Heaven, but those who did not, were flushed down the toilet.
Toilet filled with fire.
Perhaps a dumb example, and the ant example fits much better,but either way I now know I was wrong.
If God wanted to rake all of us into Hell, then He could / could've do / done so.
Instead He sent messengers to tell others about Him.
Many didn't care, and harmed or killled those messengers.
So He sent His Only Begotten SON, to do what "man" never could, which was live perfectly, and then take All of our Sins upon Him, and died for them.
Once and forever He took care of the problem between God and " man".
He then wrapped all of this into a free "for us " gift, which is offered to any and all who want it.
Many do not.
I did not.
Around 12 years ago I did want, and accept that Free gift.
I now know, that I will be in Heaven one day "already there ",as far as God's concerned.
I just want to tell others about this gift.
I cannot make them want it.
I cannot make them accept it.
They must choose for themselves.

That guy obviously yearned for a god. He was never an atheist. Some people get confused, thinking that they must be atheists, just because they are spiritually lost. Very simple-minded thinking. Atheists have very defined, solid beliefs. This Gtown character doesn't get it, never got it, never will...because he is incapable of deep thought. He's the perfect little minion to his god.

You were disputing Inky's explanations of nature so I assumed that you have an alternative explanation. The only other explanation that I know of is the Big Bang theory for which I thought explained nature as a chance occurrence. But if you have other explanations, defend them. Don't just disparage Inky's.

Christian.
Catholic(meaning universal).
My post was in response to the claim that there is no proof of Jesus and it was only Christians who believed the 'myth'. As you and I both said, it is pretty much a given by most respected sholars, that he did indeed walk on the earth and did what is written that he did.

You talk about Chrisyians with disgust but you quote from the Jewish Bible.

If a man follows Christ's words to love God above all else and love thy neighbor, He wouldn't treat his wife badly. Perhaps you don't know any true Christian men. I live with one and he is a gem.

St Paul was a persecuter of God loving Christians until God made a change in his life. He sure wasn't looking for God.

I honestly honestly don't recall a specific conversation about "explanations of nature." Care to clarify or refer to a specific post?

Men have a hard time following anyone that
isn't wearing a skirt. Jesus preached to
the Jews because that did not follow Gods
laws. They do not want to be controlled by
anyone but evil controls them.
