Re: women to be silent in church?

Your statement is incorrect... They are not contradictions... This verse is talking about deception. Adam was NOT deceived as Eve was. Eve was tempted by the snake and then sinned. Adam, however, "knowingly" and "willingly" sinned against God. Uhh, how can I seriously consider C...

Re: Aborted Fetuses?

O.K. so the Bible clearly states that the souls of aborted fetuses will go straight to Heaven, correct?

Re: women to be silent in church?

Paul was emphatically not excusing or absolving Adam of blame for the Fall. Elsewhere Paul put the responsibility squarely on Adam's shoulders Rom. 5:12-21. So you are saying that Paul doesn't think it's Eve's fault even though Paul plainly says that it is Eve to blame and not Adam? Paul has just c...

Re: Survey says that Christians are happier?

I think we need to realize that no survey can ever really address the multiple facets of "happiness" First, Any survey would need to be extraordinarily clear concerning their definition of happiness. Secondly, In fact, if you look at the various examples from scripture, it is clear that w...

Re: women to be silent in church?

well than why does it say "I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing—if they co...

Re: Debating?

Read the Board purpose and Discussion Guidlelines. These issues are all addressed there. We're not a debate board. There are plenty of those if that is your wish. We exist for a narrower purpose and this board is not for everyone. Well okay, but I don't really see how you can establish a defense of...

Re: Aborted Fetuses?

They go straight to heaven right? I mean they have original sin, but isn't there an age of accountability? By the same logic all the lives of Christians should be aborted too, yeah? well, so they don't go to heaven? ... I don't get your questions. Perhaps you could restate more clearly what you rea...

Re: women to be silent in church?

It will be in the scripture because scripture is a recording of events that happened in history. Just like a proper understanding of Shakespeare requires an understanding of the events and culture in England in the time period, scripture requires understanding the culture in Biblical times. You don...

Re: Debating?

yes, you can add stuff to the discussion without actually debating but if someone challenges you to back up your ideas or counters them with something else, then you should be prepared to back up your argument. If you check the "oldest fossil" post you will see what happens when rules are...

Debating?

Well the rules say I can't debate, does that mean I can't provide evidence for anything I say? Can I state my opinion if it differs from a Christian's? debate: a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints discuss: to consider or examine by argument, comment, et...
