All religions are full of contradictions.
Let me give you the Cliff Notes on Christianity;
After you accept Jesus into your life and ask him to forgive you of your sins, then you need to follow the 10 commandments and get back to loving and forgiving everyone and helping the needy.
Leave the judging and finger pointing to God.

The matter of women being the glory of man and man being the glory of God is a pointer to the order of creation.
Man was made in Gods image and therefore reflects Gods image.
Woman was made from man and therefore reflects mans image. Its not about being inferior, but about the reflection we give.
I don't understand what you find so odd about women being described as weaker than men. After all it is true, women are weaker than men. If I had an arm wrestling match with a man I can guarantee I would lose.This verse just tells men that they should treat women carefully.
Women being silent in the church I believe goes back to when the men and women had to sit in dofferent parts of the church and women used to call over to their husbands.
The reason Paul taught that women should not rule over men was most likely again because man was created first and woman was given to him as a helper, not the other way around. I believe women should support their men, whats wrong with that? We don't want churches full of emasculated men do we?
The verse about childbearing is worded differently in my bible and you didn't complete the whole verse.
I think the verse is saying that God will keep them safe during childbirth.
The shaving of the hair you are taking out of context. Read the whole chapter and you will see that it is saying that for a woman to pray/prophesy with no head covering is as shameful as being shaven headed. In those days the women who were temple prostitutes in some religions had shaven heads.
This was an amazing explanation for the abuse of women in the church, it's not as bad as it sounds. I used to be mad at God for these things but he loves me just as much as men, it's just women were created second and sinned first. But God has done so much for me it's not even right to say he doesn't love me. And God even tells men that women will have equal inheritence with them in the Kingdom.
thank to my GOD

aparently you have also missed some of the other aspects of wemon in the Bible... wemon such as Ruth and Esther(shows wemon are wise)... also you should read Proverbs 18:22 "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receeives favor from the Lord."

Angelina, you mean to say that there is not a man on this planet that you could whip in an arm wrestling contest?

Do you mean to say that there are not women who have such strength so as to be able to whip most men in arm wrestling contests?

You wrote that women are to be quiet in churches because they had a propensity of calling out to their husbands. Then what about men who could likewise call out to their wives?

Your apologetics need a bit of work, wouldn't you say?

"In the temptation of our first parents in Eden, Satan cast doubt upon the reliability of God’s revelation. In essence, Satan told man to rely on his own reason; to exalt himself above God and His Word. The temptation was a solicitation for man to become his own god by becoming his own origin of truth, justice, morals, meaning and beauty. Satan did not mock or contradict man’s reason. He did not suggest that he should distrust it. Satan offered a temptation which would enthrone man’s reason above God and His Word; above all that is holy.
The unbeliever sees his own mind as ultimate. Therefore he denies the Scriptural assertion that a man can know nothing apart from God’s revelation. Man’s intellect and powers of reason are not ethically neutral. Man’s intellectual sin reveals itself in the field of knowledge."

What Paul says about a man and his woman is meant the way love will have it all work.

If the guy is a strong Christian husband who, for example, is strong enough not to let things worry him ... while his lady fusses about nothings ... Peter means for him to love her and be patient with her about her worrying which makes her weaker than him. ONE example.

Also, she may be weaker physically, and so he should be aware and considerate of her, and not assume she can do things which would be too much for her. She might be compromised by the fact she is bulging with a baby > be tender with her, while she is in a weak situation like this.

But "weaker" can mean other things, also. Let's see what my Greek source says "weaker" can mean > "strengthless", we have in my Strong's Concordance Greek dictionary. NOT just "weaker", but "strengthless".

Well, if she is dominating and controlling, possessive > this is VERY weak. So, Peter could mean for a humble guy to be patient with his wife while she still needs to get over her own ego problems which make her weak > "nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3) NOT to force and pressure and criticize her, but nurture her with his good example ... like Jesus does with Him (o:

I think each couple needs to discover for themselves how this would apply to them, then, as a unique couple (o: Each case of "weaker" can be different (o:

"the husband is head of the wife," Paul says, in Ephesians 5:23. Without the head, a body is pretty weak. But what happens to the head if it has no body? There is MUTUAL need and dependence, then. There are times and ways the man is weak, too. Peter, then, I would say, was just making sure the guy is sensitive to his wife in any problems she may have. But she is his helpmate; so he needs help, too, about HIS weaknesses, so he can learn better to be caring and sensitive in how he loves.

Well said!

Grandpa would have made some sort of comparison between fine china and a hammer...
both have a purpose, neither being able to take the place of, or being more important than the other.

Lookin forward to seeing Grandpa again!

1 Cor. 11:7 reads: 7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

This verse does not say women are inferior to man.

Men are to treat women with the utmost respect and he is to love his wife as Jesus loved us.

Ephesians 5: 25 25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

God is looking to see if we can submit to His authority and NOT OUR OWN by humbling ourselves to submit to His will in our lives.

Look what Jesus has done for us. Jesus gave us the greatest example of submission ever given. He submitted to God's will to die and suffer on the cross for the sins of the world. Surely we can allow God to set the rules, and to follow His teachings in an act of love and respect for the one that has created us. Can we?
