No, no conspiracy whatsoever. It's all just a bad gay dream of subversion, perversion, and decadence done by Christains and Muslims. Are you an Ashkenazi?
No, maybe I'm a Balfours pie.

Sin \Sin\, v. i.[imp. & p. p. Sinned; p. pr. & vb. n.
Sinning.][OE. sinnen, singen, sinegen, AS. syngian. See
Sin, n.]
1. To depart voluntarily from the path of duty prescribed by God to man
2. To violate human rights, law, or propriety; to commit an offense; to trespass; to transgress.
[1913 Webster]
Just use the second definition and let the discussion proceed from there.
Re your 2nd definition, what do u call violating the human rights of homosexuals? Like what happened to Matthew Shepard, or the ones in Iran.

I could believe that. You're smart enough to rebutt people without resorting to those silly icons, which don't show on my phone anyway.

Bzzzt! Wrong answer.
1 Timothy 2:11-15 "11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety."
Interestingly, Paul here is also saying that women will be saved by being baby factories, so I guess women born barren are SOL.
Anyway, maybe you should spend more time reading that book you thump. If you really understood what it said, you'd very likely toss it away.
Bzzt.

Comprehension... women are not allowed to be in positions of authority over men in a church setting.(teaching men would be an example).

Context/conflict... your interpretation would be in conflict not only with Paul's own teaching about salvation, but every other Bible writer. It is a difficult verse, but the context indicates the important role a woman plays in bearing children and introducing them to society. You experienced both sides of this. The pain of an absent mother and the blessing of a good surrogate mother. I would suggest that situation explains much about who you are today.

Here is an example of a brief explanation of possible interpretations;

LOL. I'm stupid because I asked you a question? Okaaay. Well, thanks for sharing then.
Nope. I didn't say that either.
You are really bad at this.

You are not stupid for asking questions.
You are stupid for making stupidly false assumptions smugly. Repeatedly.

Exactly. Women are forbidden from teaching Christian ideology. They are supposed to defer to men to do that.

It's not my interpretation, it's what the Bible says. If you want to edit it, go for it. Plenty of other people have. Why do you think there are seven fewer books in the Protestant Bible than the Catholic one? IMHO the Bible could use ALOT more editing.

I think you mean to say, separating them from society and keeping them submissive.

Um, are you talking to yourself? You know, there are meds for that.

Oh I see. I'm stupid for not being able to read your mind. Well, you know, I tried the whole Vulcan mind-meld thing on you, but I just got a disconnect signal.

1. Women can teach doctrine to other women and children according to the passage.

2. It is 'your' interpretation, just like your mistaken one about who women can teach.

3. There is no more important part in society than birthing it's members.

I don't know or care. I have homosexual friends and they say the topic of sin doesn't interest them either.
I just like to comment on false logic, of which there is plenty on all sides in this thread.
I recently had my first man on man sexual trisk. It was great and everything appeared normal until I pulled out and there was abutter bean on the tip of my pecker.

Is that legal? It sure as hell aint normal.

This has to be the most stagnant and repetitive thread on Topix.
Losers on both sides saying the same thing all day every day, all week every week, all month every month, all year every year.
And somehow thinking they are being convincing and even clever? Sad
This thread is here for only one reason. Well, two who keep giving it CPR every time it dies:
WasteWater septic tank and KaMar the discount magician
Two children who think they are playing that game little boys play - King Of The Hill.
And they then pretend that the stakes are the entire rainbow flag battle to be determined right here. If either one stops playing, the fate of the nation changes.
Actually, they are playing the game little girls do when they first learn to phone each other - No You Hang Up First.
What losers they both are.
How many troll accounts are you going to set up loser?

Answering your other troll account is the ultimate in stupidity.
