What does the New Testament say about women?

What does the New Testament say about women?

It is good for a man not to touch a woman, so that he is not tempted to "immorality" and does not "defile" himself. Men are the "heads" of their wives and the "glory of God," whereas the woman is merely the "glory of man." Man was not created from woman, but woman from man. Women must be submissive in everything and subject to their husbands, who, again, are their "heads." Women should not speak in church but must remain subordinate and learn in submissiveness. No woman can teach or have authority over men. Girls and women must be "trained" to love and to be sensible, chaste, domestic and submissive to their husbands.

What does the Koran say about women?

What does the Koran say about women?

Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men's "fields," and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man, and men are above women. Muslim men may marry up to four wives, including prepubescent girls, and can own sex slaves. Muslims are not allowed to marry non-Muslims, unless the latter convert to Islam. Women must cover themselves and be seen only by relatives, eunuchs, slaves and children who have not yet had sex with women.

Adam and Eve a myth?

Adam and Eve a myth?

Christian scholars are being forced to reconsider the account of Adam and Eve in the Bible, largely because of genetic studies. If Adam is mythical, then the Bible is incorrect, not "inerrant." Moreover, the New Testament traces Jesus's family lineage to the (fictional) Adam. (Lk 3:38) Based on this factor and many others, as I demonstrate in many books and articles, may we not also conclude, therefore, that Jesus is likewise fictional?
