Hmmm. No I think it's more like... the "woman" is spirit.... (the just, merciful, loving, kind, gentle, nurturing, etc.) - which is NOT opposed to following the lamb. However, our soul the "man" has temporary dominion over this world and tells the woman to sit down; all she is for is to be subject to the male (or so the male thinks). Until the soul "man" finally realizes the error of it's ways throughout all of history with it's domination and soulish tendencies which have destroyed the world. All of this, in order for God to show us that man(kind) "soul" cannot rule. That we ALL NEED God and will cling to God forever. And that soul will be "left behind" and the spirit will go back to God where it belongs.

True strength will be realized in the "feminine" traits, not the "masculine" traits.

This world is currently, temporarily upside down and backwards.

The meek shall inherit the earth.



Just some meandering thoughts.

I stumbled on a forum that takes "unique" to a whole new level! Some of these guys are so off the deep end I don't know what how to categorize them.

Here is the title of my favorite topic “The Hall of Shame where false brethren and devils are named” This is like taking the “Church Lady” to the extreme. When a co-moderator turns out to be a devil, you know things are going to get fun there. I bet this will cause me to make the list!

I am glad to have this forum, also. I don't really want to sign up for any other forum because of the junk that goes on. Too much fighting. Arguing (debating, I guess) is fine for the most part, but the anger that flies around in some forums is just too much for me. It's like listening to people fight on talk shows. After a while I just tune out.

Well - from the site the OP posted: "Quote of the moment: 1Tim 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence". The Hall of Shame where false brethren and devils are named

Is that why the Spirit seems to remain silent in church?

By the way - "Brother Winter" is here now: Legalism, the cop out of fools

Hall of Shame appears to be not too active any more. The last post appears to be 3 months old. Wonder why? I think they'd never run out of shame!
