Nope. Going by your own ugly and negative words about your wife.  The bible says that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. You said some pretty vile things about your wife and women in general.  Its not perception, but just reflecting back to you what you've already said; if that's uncomfortable for you, I suggest you search your heart and make it right with God.
God's Marvelous Solution to my wife's untrained mind has given me joy, and the Divine ability to daily forgive her of all things because her ashes can neither argue nor make psychotic shrieks. 

In the Bible, God did away with all recalcitrant hearts after they proved themselves of their nature.  The Philistines, the Rebellious Hebrews in Sinai, the hypocritic Pharisees, the complainers under Moses, the churchy idiots in Asia Minor, the lukewarm people He spewed from His mouth, those who gossip about strangers.   He did the same Godly thin with my wife.  Now, my adult kids and I get along great since her ashes are not able to interfere by "KNOWING WHAT IS BEST!!"  lol.

At any rate, I'm sure she is WAY happier too, away from it all and with the Lord.

Those "healthy marriages" are extremely rare.  They do not change the vast majority of Christian marriages either full of sin because of a bossy and psychotic wife, or in divorce.

I know loads of healthy marriages. How sad that you are so full of anger and bitterness against the one women you were married to, that you take your hatred out on 50% of the population. You know nothing about any woman except one.

I have been greatly hurt by more than one man, but I am sensible enough to know that not all men are like them.I have also forgiven them.  I now have a great husband and great marriage. 

Are you going to carry on disobeying God and keep hold of that bitterness, anger resentment and anger? Or are you going to obey him and forgive your perceived hurts? Honestly, it pours out of you like poison.

Its crystal clear that you have not forgiven her. Your hate and anger and bitterness are evident.

I agree, my husband was hurt by his former wife, but he never spoke badly of her, especially in front of their sons. He always treated her with respect and fairness and forgave her long ago. He has no anger or bitterness towards her and let the past go.

Women are as simple to understand and deal with as pets and children.  Lol.  It all starts with remembering how Perfect  Eve in the Garden, having all she needed for life and happiness, with a perfect Husband, perfect hair and skin, no psychotic baggage, no bills, and perfect everything, still sinned and caused all of Creation to fall simply because she was stupid, self centered, and gullible as a Woman.

Lol.  Paul states "The woman transgressed, not Adam."  1 Tim. 2:14.

The woman sinned because a MALE.... MALE.... serpent enticed her. But if she was so gullible, as you claim.... how much more stupid was the MAN Adam, to follow her in eating that fruit when God had told HIM not to.

Yea... God blamed him that he did not have control over her.... but....he was just a simple idiot not using the head on his shoulders but  the _______   _____!

Is that what happened in your marriage? You could not or would not think?

You never answered... Why did you not divorce her. You are not interested in remarriage.... ( again I thank God for that) so it would have been permissible.
I just cannot help but wonder if there was a sizable insurance policy involved.. or something along those lines. After all, you did say you save a ton of money being alone.... you should wrap it up in a 5 pound note, take some honey and sail off in a pea green boat..........

Or better yet you need to get the to a counselor because you definitely need help.

So women are simple to understand as pets?  Just you remember that pets have been known to bite the hand that feeds them and turn on their masters quite often.

People tend to believe what they want and minimize parts of God's Word that they don't like.

  For example, some members of this board believe women can be called by God as a Pastor or Elder when the bible specifically restricts this to qualified men.

It would be both more honest and more charitable and Christlike if you phrased that more like this:

Some members of this board believe that Scripture shows that women can be called by God to fill any ministry role men can fill, including pastor or even apostle, while others believe Scripture specifically restricts some roles to qualified males.

It is not. The more you speak, the more you prove just how little you really know. Missing a godly woman being around has left you without very much help in understanding the scriptures.

The holy apostle speaks not of his state and condition, as married or unmarried, because it can hardly be thought he should wish all men to be in either state, either all married, or all unmarried; but he speaks of the gift of continency, which he had, as the following words show; and this he desires for all men, that they might not be in any danger from Satan's temptations, and that they might be more fit for and intent upon the service of Christ.......which may be preserved in a marriage state, as well as in single life:

but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that~all the gifts of nature and grace which men have, they have of God, and not of themselves; and every man has a gift proper to himself; no one man has all gifts, but some one, and some another; and with respect to the case in hand, one man has the gift of continency, another the gift of marriage; all cannot contain themselves, only to whom it is given: and all are not disposed to marriage; some are inclined to a single life, and some to a marriage state; and of those that are married, some can abstain from the use of the marriage bed longer than others, without being in danger of being tempted by Satan for their incontinency; and such a disposition is desirable.

This is Paul's sense of saying: To believe that Paul meant that he desired every man to be single makes NO SENSE and goes against scriptures first and foremost. He is speaking concerning gift of continency~which some men have, others do not, but BOTH could be given of God for different reasons! You cannot learn this in Islam, only in Jesus Christ's religion. They teach the MORE the merrily.

Paul did indeed say he wished "all men were as himself [continent]," even violating the rest of Scripture by saying such a state of not being married is desirable.  God specified "It Is Not Good For Man To Be Alone," thereby giving marriage as the best goal for His People.  Paul is unsupported by the rest of Scripture, even taking arrogant pride in doing so.

Its not playing a game to accept that there are those who take their lead on any subject on Gods whole Bible rather than one isolated verse.

I know.  The restriction of women and non qualified males from the eldership is a repeated teaching.  And this is exactly why your position is false.

And yet God chose a woman to lead and judge Israel. He chose a woman to tell her whole village about the Messiah. He chose a woman to be the first to meet the risen Jesus and tell the male disciples that He was risen from the dead. He won't be put in a box.
No my position isn't false. In Him, there is no male or female. He calls who He wills.

Your position is false.  Israel is not the church.  And your position relies on Galatians 3:28 to cancel out the rest of scripture.  Your position arises from western feminism, and not scripture.  Eisegesis of the text is used to prooftext and existing belief.  Your position denies 1 Timothy 2, it denies 1 Timothy 3, it denies others.

You want what you want, and bollocks to scriptures that disagree.

There are a majority of statements in Scripture which make no rational or Spiritual sense.  I am easily able to identify most of them, as I merely stand above the typical mindlessness of modern "Faith" and "Christian Academia."

Are you a bid alarmed at my claim?  Did you want me to ever stand below the presumptuous and patronizing stance held by self proclaimed "Chosen and Called Christians?"  Lol.

You are indeed "direct."

I am not at all certain you are "honest."  You are certainly arrogant, stubborn, graceless, foolish, and manifestly unchristlike.

Your position is false.  Israel is not the church.

That's true, Gal. 6:16 notwithstanding.  In terms of OT examples and arguments, I usually rely on things that predated the Law and Obsolete Covenant, mainly the original Creation.  When I do cite examples like Deborah and Huldah, it is usually to show that even under the greater strictures of the Old ways before the Church, some few women were called to the highest positions in the people of God.

No, we do not rely on just that one verse.  It also relies on Acts 2, Rom. 16, Col. 4:15, among many others.

No, our understanding is not rooted in western feminism and read into the text.  It arises from observing apparent conflicts among various Scriptures, and studying to resolve them.

No, our position does not "deny" 1 Tim. 2 or 3, or Tit. 1.  It denies some particular translations, interpretations, and applications of those passages.

God never changes. He has used and uses women in positions of very powerful leadership as the Bible shows and when Mary spread the first news of Jesus resurrection the New Covenant and church had already begun.

One of my children used to go to a church where a Christian theologian from Oxford University did a deep study on women's position in the church. Before he did it he veered towards thinking that women should not be in leadership. Once he studied all the relevant parts of the Bible using the original Greek and Hebrew words, he was astounded and concerned to find that many of the words have been very wrongly translated and he ended up being convinced that God wants to use women in both leadership and teaching.

BTW I care nothing for western feminism, only what God says and what my husband says.

You did not understand what I was saying and took it and flip it around to support your twisted view of Christ and his Apostles and Christianity, to push forward your false religion and your false god Allah with his false prophet Muhammed the center of your worthless, devilish religion.

There will be no apology, at least not unilaterally.  I have as much right to say those things as he does to make the evil claims he made.

Doubt you will get an answer to this query, but his comments make a bit more sense when you take a look at Red's most recent post:

Quote from: Red

But again it is doubtful he will confirm or deny.

John 3:20-21 (NIV)
20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Personal attacks aside, your position does deny 1 Tim 2 and 3, among other scriptures.  Period.

but every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that~all the gifts of nature and grace which men have, they have of God, and not of themselves; and every man has a gift proper to himself; no one man has all gifts, but some one, and some another; and with respect to the case in hand, one man has the gift of continency, another the gift of marriage; all cannot contain themselves, only to whom it is given: and all are not disposed to marriage; some are inclined to a single life, and some to a marriage state; and of those that are married, some can abstain from the use of the marriage bed longer than others, without being in danger of being tempted by Satan for their incontinency; and such a disposition is desirable.

This is Paul's sense of saying: To believe that Paul meant that he desired every man to be single makes NO SENSE and goes against scriptures first and foremost. He is speaking concerning gift of continency~which some men have, others do not, but BOTH could be given of God for different reasons! You cannot learn this in Islam, only in Jesus Christ's religion. They teach the MORE the merrily.

Did someone here ask you to try to make sense of Paul's statements?  Are his writings The Word of God, or not?  Does God really care what makes sense to you?

God teaches us that marriage is a picture of the relationship between Him and us. Read song of songs. Its full of romance and love and emotion.
Christians will be His bride when he returns, yes He loves marriage. 

Paul was stressing the importance of not sinning sexually, which he knew was so damaging to the person doing it. Far better he said to be married than sin sexually.

The Bibles teaching must always be taken as a whole, surely we all know that?

Do you not take the whole Bible as Gods word?

Who are you judging another brother like that? You have no right to call TC dishonest, graceless, foolish and manifestly unchristian~you owe him an apology. But based on Solomon's wisdom, your way is right and he's all wrong, correct? TC is right you are wrong, but let us take this to another thread shall we.

Do you think its ok for TC to use words like bollocks to me and others just because I/we don't agree with him? Have you ever known me to use words like that to people I don't agree with?
It doesn't bother me what TC says, I am used to his anti-female and sometimes rude posts, but NorrinRad was right in what he said.

My wife was accurately represented by my vo.ments without bias.  Do you ever show gender biased thoughts and actions?
 

You are anti-women because of what ONE woman did. You haven't forgiven her and that's why you are still angry and bitter towards 50% of the human race.

She is eminently more qualified than you are.

You are merely a minority of 1.  And that is not a plus 1 either....

You are the epitome of someone who has no clue as to what the meaning of is, is...

Rant all you want... civil debate is not in your vocabulary, I understand.... but every post you make just demonstrates how desperate
you are for no one here is going to agree with you 100 %...  Probably not een 10%

Did you mean to spell comments to look and sound more like vomits? (thats what your words about your wife have amounted too...vomiting bile)

At any rate, I doubt very much that God agrees with you about your "without bias" and that you accurately represented her.

She was a woman loved by him, though she was obviously devalued and disrespected by you, that you can't even find the decency to speak well of the dead.

@Makzej, you might want to start toning down your posts if you'd like to continue to post here.  You are out of control with your emotional vitriol and hysterical anger at women due to your refusal to forgive your wife.

Do you have evidence for your ideas?

You are out of control with your idea that you know what is best for other people.

What a nasty, obnoxious and hateful response.  Of course God cares what makes sense to each of us. But it is apparent that you think otherwise. And for that matter, did someone here ask you to try to make sense of Paul's statements?  I don't think so.  Given everything that you have posted thus far, I can't imagine anyone would.

TC is a very straightforward person, he hides no punches and he (like all of us) should choose his words more wisely. But, he did not judge your salvation as NorrinRad did his. I'm out of this and trust all can forgive and move forward.
Quote from: James the apostle
James 3:1-10~"My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be."
