Discussion for 1 Timothy 2

  • Lu2677
    I am thankful that God has given me a heart to seek his wisdom, and not the wisdom of men.
    Those that walk in the light, love the light, they love words that edify. Those that walk in darkness, hate the light, they love words that destroy, and bring wrath.
  • Lu2677
    Genesis 3:15-19 Your response is very sad to me. Getting kicked out of the beautiful Garden, sweating over the ground (planting) death, pain in child birth, women desiring to rule over men, Verse says, God says he cursed Adam and Eve, and all of mankind born after them, (born in sin) death, is part of it. Yet, you say, God did not curse Adam and Eve. I guess you do not believe what God says.
  • A disciple
    The woman was not cursed, nor the man; but the serpent! Read the account again please! God listened to the confession and witness of Adam and his wife, and pronounced doom upon the serpent for what he had done; declaring that Christ would come in the flesh and "break his head" through His own sacrifice of Himself into the hands of the devil's seed. The ground was cursed; not the man nor his wife.

    Cheryl Dawn 1Timothy 2:14 "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Genesis 3:17 He said to Adam,"because you have hearkened to the voice of the woman and ate of the tree,I commanded you not to eat".God cursed Eve because she allowed herself to be deceived,she followed Satan's deception instead of God's command. I hope scripture clears it up for you.

    1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
  • A disciple
    Lu2677; If I may? I think a lot of people were uneducated, but that wasn't the reason women were forbidden to teach and to dominate the men, but to be under obedience and to keep silence. The modern culture of some western countries, who have become spiritual adulteresses; congratulate themselves for things that are abomination to God, and STILL forbidden! But who dares say anything these days?
