Women In The Bible

Women In The Bible: "God doesn't hate women, the Bible does. But you can expect that, since it was written entirely by biased, macho men who proclaimed they were given the authority and were inspired by God. What can be more evident of this than the constant contradictions, bickering, arguing and debating in regards to it? "Matter of interpretation", "that's your opinion," "where's that in the Bible?", "we know the truth", "Sunday is a pagan day," "Saturday is the real sabbath", etc, etc. Since God is not supposed to be the author of confusion, does it make sense he would inspire men to write such a book filled with hate, killings, torture, rape, incest, religious wars, cannibalism, polygamy, wholesale slaughter, etc in His name?

It is ironic when one places his or her hand on the Bible and swears to solemnly tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God in a court of law that is sworn to uphold the law. You are legally required to swear by a book that is full of every broken law known to man and woman. It is an affront to the Almighty.

A woman should ask her minister, did God ever "inspire" a member of her sex with assistance in writing the Bible? Why are women put down so much in the Bible? Why are they scorned, rebuked, ridiculed, servile, and told to be quiet in church?..."

I actually asked a pastor before why God wasn't a woman or the Holy Spirit. It didn't go well...

Great point.  Much of Religion was used to control people.  That sucks.

It really is and I hate it. It's also used to discriminate against people even though everyone always says that God is a loving God. What truly loving person discriminates against others?
