Subject: RE: What does the word 'God' mean to you?,II
What you should maybe consider in context to the New Testament of Christ is that the laws of the Jews were there to be obeyed and those were the laws of the time for them. Many of the things Paul said were concerning the way people lived in the Jewish culture. I believe that we live with a God of Grace who would want us to do His will and live as near as we can to the pattern that Jesus set for us...maybe impossible but Christians are expected to try. Our laws with regard to women differ from the jews...they did then and they do now....as laws evolved women and men have been given a token equality. I say token as we can never be equal...there are things women can do that men can't and vice versa....but in law both have equal rights. I believe that God loves both equally and can accept anything from them that fits into the words Jesus uttered....
Love one another as I have loved you.
