I was under the impression that ancient Israelite wives wore pretty jewelry, even nose rings, if their husbands could afford them.


-sigh-

They did.


Then what was that rule about not wearing jewelry about?


Being humble.


Being humble is very possible for a wife who wears jewelry her husband bought her. All she had to do was give him lots of sex and serve him. razz


Devotion and servitude are two different things.

Ok then all she had to do was be devoted to him.

It's The Bible. It's an antique.

It barely applies to modern times anymore, but pretends to by being vague and philosophical (as well as pretending WAY too hard to be scientific).

That there that it says pertains to a time long abandoned and long forgotten.


Studying in a Catholic university however, I have to put up with all these stuff, shove it in my mind, answer a professor's questions on exegetical approaches, nod in awe at all these interpretations that quite frankly only make you question more, and generally, just shut up about how I'm not Catholic. It sucks when the best university in your region is run by Catholics who continue teaching how homosexuality involves purely nurture and no nature. justrantinghere.

1 Corinthians 11:7 - 9*

7 For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

1 Corinthians 14:34 - 35*

34. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but [they are commanded] to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

(Woman to be silent in church. A woman is not to speak in church)
Ephesians 5:22 - 25*

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

(Wives must submit themselves to their husband, afterall he is the head of the wife)
Colossians 3:18 *

18. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

(Wives submit to their husband -- the Lord expects it)
1 Timothy 2:9 - 15*

9. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

(Women not to wear braided hair, gold, pearls, or costly array.
Women must learn in silence. Women are not to teach and not have
authority over men. Women must be silent. Adam was created first,
then Eve. A woman was deceived, but Adam was not deceived)

Romans 7:2

2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to [her] husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of [her] husband.

(woman bound to her husband for life)

Titus 2:3 - 5*

3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

(Women to obey their own husbands)
1 Peter 3:1 -3

1. Likewise, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation [coupled] with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward [adorning] of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

1 Peter 3:5 -7*

5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

Genesis 3:16*

16. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire [shall be] to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

(Women will be ruled by men)
Leviticus 12:2 *

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.

Leviticus 12:5

5 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.

(Woman unclean for 7 days if she gives birth to a man child.
She is unclean for 14 days to 66 days if she gives birth to woman child)
Esther 1:22

22 For he sent letters into all the king's provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that [it] should be published according to the language of every people.

Job 25:4 *

4 How then can man be justified with God? or , how can he be clean [that is] born of a woman?

(Any man born of a woman is unclean)
Ecclesiastes 7:26

26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart [is] snares and nets, [and] her hands [as] bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.

( Women can be source of evil for men. Men source of evil for
women? -- doesn't say)
Deuteronomy 22:5 *

5. The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.


1 Corinthians 11:14 *

Because times change? I mean, if people were to stick to the OT like glue, they would all be Jews. If you take out the OT, the only thing that really speaks out is that people are stuck on the creation story of how Eve was naive enough to be tricked by a talking snake, and that is probably warning that women can be more gullible and trusting than men (even if it's not true.) You'll also find in the Bible, I believe in the letters from Paul, that speaks about the women who are preaching the word of Jesus. I'm too lazy to look it up at nearly 11pm, but honestly even from that standpoint, Jews were very progressive when it came to womens rights. Not to mention that men were given standards of behavior just like women, since THEY were the ones who had to answer to God.


But the entire premise of creatiionism from the very beginning. Man didn't have enough, and so god created woman for man. So man could have something to keep him from getting bored, a plaything, essentially.


It's a book written by men from close to 5,000 or so years ago, take that with multiple translations where people put whatever the hell they want in there and you've got a book of some chauvinistic beliefs.

The Old Testament is constantly contradicted by the new, so you can't take the book and exclaim that it is the word of god word for word. Yes, it preaches about the Lord and Christian deity, but the moral nitpic of the OT one should take a with a grain of salt.
