Yes I'm a man, and have been a great husband, and other times I've been a horrible husband.<quoted text>
Are you suggesting that the bible can be reinterpreted to produce such an outcome? That would be a difficult task since the bible was written by men as the foundation of male hierarchy and maltreatment of women as his pet/slave/whore.
I have witnessed and read enough history to understand the so called "order" proposed by the bible.
Yes, thankfully women CAN do as they please within or without marriage as she is an individual and not a pet/slave/whore thanks to women stepping up and taken their rightful place as the producers of the human race.
I am married and have been for over 30 years. We have a partnership and we are both the heads of the house. One does not rule over the other.
I never said women were garbage, I was referring to the bible as being such.
Who sinned first in mythical story? The ridiculous HE-MAN Childish male god who decided to play a game with a tree and an apple.
Why the verses concern me so much? Think about it genius, they have been the force behind the maltreatment of women for ages. I would have thought you could have figured that out. Obviously you are a man and this doesn't concern you.
I've changed diapers, cleaned clothes, cooked, washed dishes, and other times I've not done those things, and took my wife for granted.
There should be some type of order, in anything.
When things have order, they run much better.
When they don't,they don't.
You and ocean just seem to be upset, becouse many men in the past have used the Bible to justify their bad actions.
Had the Bible reversed the man and woman's role, I believe many women would've done the same thing.
Many who cry equality, truly just want to run the show.
No matter what saith the Lord, people still do as they please.
That's the whole reason He sent His son.
I'm just thankful I don't get what I deserve.
Most wouldn't want what they deserved if they only knew.
