whats with women having to still GET TALKS UP and men get "OUTLINES" wt doesnt wanna make mens poor lil brains have to work.
Sexism in the borg....sexist pigs the lot
Example: Judah (Jacobs son) had sex with his daughter-inlaw (Judah's son died, and she was supposed to be given to the next son) disguised as a prostitute.
When she showed her pregnancy he was ready to stone her to death! Well, luckily she saved his family crest ring
(he gave to her as collateral until he came back with payment) and when her accusation was about to get her killed,
she exclaimed "sir, it was you..... Blah blah". Well, did he order himself put to death? No, but she would have!
Right from the go, the bible has been biased against women, Eve is nicely set up to be the one that led Adam astray. Right from the beginning, men tainted the bible's view on women.
Hell, MEN wrote the bible. What kind of a perspective would a women have put on it?
After Jesus died, he showed himself to a woman first. The men were stunned and disbelieving that a woman would be chosen by Jesus to be the first to see him.
The bible and Jesus' actual teachings/life contradict each other. What does that tell you?
(Paul) He was one of those jews
Sorry, but Paul was a gentile who was a jew-wannabe. That's why he "took" to christs teachings is because he could BS his way in.
The Apostle Paul was a Jew.
Gentile - is a person who is not a Jew or of the Jewish faith. Christians in the early church were both Jew and Gentile. Paul was a Jew as were most of the early church leaders, including Peter, James, John and Barnabas. However, Luke and others who were recruited by Paul were Gentiles. Paul believed that Judaism was not a separate religion, but a moral law or code by which people lived. One could be both a Jew and a Christian, as one might be a Stoic as well as a Christian.

Original name Saul of Tarsus 1st-century Jew who, after first being a bitter enemy of Christianity, later became an important figure in its history.
I do believe that women do hold alot of 'silent' power in the congregation. What about all those powerful elders wives. Bull*shi* that their husbands don't tell them everything. I doubt there is full confidentiality. I think many men would turn to their wives for support and advice on certain subjects. That is only natural.
*** w52 7/1 p. 406 Restrictions of Christian Freedom ***
The man must live with his wife according to knowledge of God?s fundamental laws of nature. The husband takes into consideration the biological constitution of the female, her limitations, her cycles, her vicissitudes, which greatly affect her mental processes, disposition and temperament. God does not overlook these feminine restrictions; neither should husbands.?Lev. 18:19; 20:18; 1 Pet. 3:7-9, NW.
***g72 2/22 p. 8 Is God in Your Marriage? ***
To care properly for every need of an infant (emotional, mental and physical) requires a very gentle, sensitive, feminine nature, just the opposite of an aggressive masculine one.
***w83 6/1 p. 19 Husbands, Show Self-Sacrificing Love ***
You must have knowledge of your wife?s emotional makeup, which is basically why she is considered the weaker vessel.
***w70 1/15 p. 36 What Kind of Husband Are You? ***
The right kind of husband also considers his wife?s emotional makeup. As the "weaker vessel" she has her physical cycles, which make her more emotionally inclined than her husband.
***g83 10/8 p. 21 Am I Ready for Marriage? ***
? Assignher honor as a weaker vessel.?1 Peter 3:7.
Will you ?hold her precious,? or honor her, even when you are under pressure or if she is in a bad mood?
Will you be able to deal with her delicate emotional makeup, which is sometimes affected by her monthly cycle?*** fl chap. 4 p. 51 A Husband Who Gains Deep Respect ***
A woman psychologist wrote: "Basically, women feel while men think." By itself, one trait is not better than the other; they simply are different. We do not care for people who are unfeeling; neither do we like thoughtless persons. Obviously, women have the capacity both to feel and to think, and the same is true of men. But, generally speaking, a woman?s emotions more readily come to the fore, while a man is usually more inclined to try to subdue emotion in favor of what he considers a logical approach to matters. Though exceptions, of course, are found, this is another difference that makes husband and wife complements of each other. Along with her basically more emotional makeup, her strong interest in people often causes her to talk more than the man. And she needs someone to return the talk. This is where many husbands fall short.*** w64 3/15 p. 172 Faithful Women Ministers?A Blessing to the New World Society ***
Jehovah?s witnesses are indeed most thankful that they have in their midst faithful women ministers. Their zeal and steadfast integrity are a source of encouragement, and the congregations are enriched by their feminine qualities of sympathetic interest and understanding, as all work together in unity in finding and caring for the "sheep."*** w96 10/15 p. 22 Father and Elder?Fulfilling Both Roles ***
Today, an elder might be married to a woman who practices a different religion, is an agnostic, or even an atheist. If she is willing to stay with him, he should not leave her simply because of differing beliefs. He should still ?dwell with her according to knowledge, assigning her honor as to a weaker vessel, the feminine one,? living in hopes of saving her.?1 Peter 3:7; Colossians 3:19.*** w95 7/15 pp. 19-20 Christian Women Deserve Honor and Respect ***
This honor, Peter says, should be ?assigned? by Christian husbands to their wives. It is to be rendered, not as a favor, but as their wives? rightful due. Why are wives entitled to such honor? Because "you are also heirs with them of the undeserved favor of life," explains Peter. In the first century C.E., the men and women who received Peter?s letter were all called to be joint heirs with Christ. (Romans 8:16, 17; Galatians 3:28) They did not have the same responsibilities in the congregation, but they would eventually share in ruling with Christ in heaven. (Revelation 20:6) Today, too, when most of God?s people have an earthly hope, it would be a serious mistake for any Christian man to feel that because of the privileges he may have in the congregation, he has more value in God?s eyes than women do. (right!)(Compare Luke 17:10.) Men and women have an equal spiritual standing before God, for Jesus? sacrificial death opened up to both men and women the same opportunity?that of being freed from the condemnation of sin and death, with everlasting life in view.?Romans 6:23.
