  1. All of this? I didn't see anything about points 2 - 5 in this thread. You didn't say "the 12 disciples" though. You only said "disciples." Thus I was addressing that point. Having women among his disciples most likely was a very radical thing since only men could be discipled to be rabbis.
  2. So . . . on a thread about North Korea, how come I'm the only one who actually made any comments about North Korea?
  3. I know this was several pages ago, but some things were mentioned here that ought to be addressed. 1. All of Jesus' followers were considered his disciples, not just the 12. We forget that Jesus had a larger body of disciples that the 12 were called out of. [Luke 6:13 - And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles; ; Acts 1:15 - And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)] So, it could be argued that the women who followed Him were disciples as well. 2. Where does the Bible say women are not to be "pastors"? Put the word "pastor" in a Bible search, and let me know how many times you even see the word "pastor" and what these verses imply is the job of a pastor! 3. If women are not to teach men period, why do we see in Acts: "He began to speak boldly in the synagogue, but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him and explained to him the way of God more accurately," and not "He began to speak boldly in the synagogue, but when Aquila heard him, Aquila took him and explained to him the way of God more accurately" (Acts 18:26)? 4. "Help-mate" does not mean "helper at his side." The word "help" in Hebrew is the same word used when David is crying out to god for help in the Psalms. This word help implies rescue, not assistance. (Don't believe me? Look it up for yourself.) The word translated as "mate" is not a word that we have in English. But it's meaning is more along the lines of "equal and opposite" - like the left hand to the right - but also one who stands before. (Again, look up the words in Hebrew yourself and find their meanings.) 5. What do you think of Elizabeth Elliott and the other women who became missionaries and initial teachers to the remote tribe that killed their husbands?
  4. Going back to the OP: "North Korea threatens to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier. Could they?" Technically, they probably could. I mean, lobby more missiles at the carrier than they are able to deflect or shoot down or whatever (assuming NK's missiles have accurate enough targeting capabilities), any ship can be sunk. The question is are they bold and arrogant enough to do something like that? (Oh, yeah, and is George Soros funneling money to its leaders? [slight tongue in cheek])
  5. "CAPITOL HILL— Pro-life activists put together a vivid visual on Capitol Hill Wednesday: more than 196,000 baby socks spilling out of dozens of baskets piled up on the Capitol Lawn just yards from where Congress meets."
  6. Is there a link for this news?
  7. Several of the previous posts seemed to indicate they were ranting against the title or maybe the opening statements, rather than having read through the tweets. That's all.
  8. Question: Did anyone actually read the tweets in the artice, or is everyone commenting on their interpretation of what the title says?
  9. The statement written in one tweet expresses an issue that has bugged me for decades: "When you heard many sermons on how women submit to husbands but 0 on how husbands lay down their life for wife."
  10. The Hashtag #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear Is Blowing Up Twitter and Pointing Out Misogyny in the Church Thoughts or comments?
  11. And right on cue, Hannity was accused of sexual harassment.
  12. True, it was just weird. Then I heard about the power outages. Maybe it's a coincidence, but it's weird.
  13. I hope you are being facetious. I've discovered that a lot of guys think they are giving a compliment by "you're hot" comments. Of course, some women actually take it that way. And a lot of guys are just immature. And then there are some women who would consider a guy saying, "That top looks flattering on you," as sexual harassment. Yes, sexual harassment is serious, but only when it is actual harassment, not some passing comment by someone you never or hardly ever interact with.
  14. Have the actual claims been reported, or was it just mentioned that women were claiming sexual harassment? I heard of one, and only one, where a black woman claimed while passing O'Reilly in the hallway, he said, without looking at her, "Hey, hot chocolate." If that is sexual harassment, I can start filing claims against a lot of males from 10 or more years ago who made comment "you look hot" types of comments at me.
  15. The news media - what a joke! They're too busy trying to bring down Pres.Trump to report actual news any more.
