Yup. Entertainingly anti-feminist too.
There's a whole lot of good in that book, tainted by a whole lot of bad. Hopefully I will get a chance to contextualize it how my religion teacher did in high school so many, many year ago.
In the meantime, let me go rage for a while about the whole 'might as well be a woman!' thing.

Galatians

reply

In Galatians, Paul stated that those who live under the Law of Leviticus, bring onto themselves a curse. 5:1 states "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." So to quote Leviticus is to push slavery onto another.

@Alereic: 17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Paul says one thing, Matthew says another. Have heaven and earth disappeared and the rest of us were unaware of it? Or will every dot stand until that time comes?
Look, I get that Galatians is set to free us from the law. But Jesus said it will not be changed. Matthews further goes on to say that we will be tested against this until the second coming, when the law WILL be filled and we will be free of it by the establishment of the living kingdom on earth.

So feel free to pit your bible against your bible. And I will see you on the other side when you become an atheist.

@GreenKrog: Oh, I'm most definitely not religious. I just went through a period of self-discovery and spirituality that may or may not have anything to do with the subject matter (^.^), so I've read most of the required texts. I believe in three things: Happiness, Karma, and the willingness some people have to believe *anything*.
