If Adam and Eve were the first two humans on earth, why is there five categorizes of races such as American Indian, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and white?
As far fornication, in the bible days I understand why sex before marriage is a sin. In those days, condoms nor birth control existed. Now in this present day, since sex before marriage is a sin and God’s purpose is for us to be fruitful and multiply, is condoms and birth control a sin?
It says in the bible that wives must submit to their husbands authority. I have a hard time understanding this, so what’s an example of a wife submitting to her husband and what if the husband dies, will the wife be head of the household? Also why can’t the husband and wife lead the household together?
Since in the bible, it’s stated that men are the leaders, how do you feel about having a female president?
From I was told, I was told when man marry a woman his wife comes first, does this mean that man is suppose to love his wife more than his mother?
Not sure if this is in the bible or not but I was told that your spouse comes before your children. Now why does your spouse comes first? Don’t your kids need your attention more than your spouse does?
If the bible didn’t exist, do you think the divorce rate today would be much lower?
Does the bible condemn slavery? “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ” and also “Masters, treat your slaves justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven” now I think most would agree that slavery is wrong. So in these two scriptures was slavery legal? How can you treat a slave fairly when a slave is forced to do work for a higher authority? Does these two scriptures contradict itself?
In church, you hear members say that the devil is a liar. Now if you read genesis it says“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman.5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked;now if you carefully read this verse, after Adam and Eve ate the apple, they knew they were naked. The serpent told Eve that her eyes would be open and she would know good and evil. Now in this present day we know the difference good and evil and we know what it means to be naked, so technically in this verse, did the devil really lie to Eve? He did lie to Eve telling her that he won’t die, but did lie to Eve when he said to Eve that she would know the difference between good and evil?
Now lust is a sin but it is encouraged in the bible to lust after your wife. So before you are married, you can’t lust after your girlfriend. If lust is a sin before marriage, how will you automatically be able to lust after your wife if you trained your mind to not lust. Your mind is set on something, its hard to change your mind, sometimes it’s impossible to change when you are use to do something for so long?
Overall I do believe there is a God, but I believe the bible is not perfect. I also believe the new testament oppresses women. The bible is man made and man the bible is written a variety of men. Also the bible is told in a man’s point of view, why couldn’t the women at the time write any verses of the bible. Are men and women created equal?
