And before you say the standard response that we can choose to believe in him and be saved, what about those who couldn't? What about those that never were told about your God, over the last 2011 years? How would the aboriginals of North and South America have been 'saved' the day after Jesus died? Or are they just s.o.l.??
And i'm glad to see you're quoting the gobbeldy-gook out of your favorite book of fiction.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, eh?
1 Timothy 2:12
King James Version (KJV)
12: But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
Guess most of the women feel real 'inspired' right about now too.
I'm sure you'll find a way to apologize for your God for that one, you've become quite the extraordinary contortionist when it comes to making excuses for 'His' 'inspired' word.
By the way, why is your God a he? And why is he a misogynist? Seems a bit contradictory for all 'his' 'love' talk. Guess he's still sore about that 'apple' thing.....darn women.....they really are 'the devil' you know, and that's even before they started wearing blue dresses, or any as a matter of 'fact', right??.
BTW - I was replying to someone else.
Just to answer your scripture taken out of context:
"The authority and teaching about which Paul spoke applies to spiritual matters only"
Oh - it doesn't mean they are to be "silent".
