Yes, we’re going for it. It’s time to discuss this whole woman thing. The sort of cliched picture I was sort of raised on is that a Christian woman is completely submissive to men, and in no circumstances belong in any form of authority over men.

Is this true? Or is it a hyperbolized form of the truth? Or is this a complete misunderstanding of the Bible? We’ll find out next week, but I suspect this will prove to the one of the more controversial discussions we’ve had yet.

On another note, I actually cannot make it on Tuesday due to graduation at my school. So I’m trying to either skip a week or move this next one to Wednesday. If you have a strong opinion on the matter, let me know before I make an executive decision!

–Cheers!

I’m still hoping to collect more data from the survey, so take it if you haven’t yet. Although Tuesday and Thursday appear more popular than Wednesday, I’m leery of changing our established day without more data.

For this week’s topic, though, I’m delving again from the survey responses. Next up? Human Nature: essentially sinner or saints by nature? It’s a thinking topic folks, so put your thinking caps on and then come and share your thoughts and/or questions.

As I ponder this matter, I find myself turning to the first two books of Genesis to see how man was originally intended to be. Revelation 20-22, on the other hand, deals with “the end” of this world and has some interesting stuff to unpack as well.

But of course, we know the Bible has quite a bit to say about hunan sinfulness. It would be a long list indeed if I tried to list them out, but for myself, I know I’ll be taking a peek at Genesis 3 to see the fall of man,Romans 3 and Romans 5 has some good stuff too, and maybe some 1 John thrown in, but there’s really too much to even list here.

Happy hunting! Comment or leave me a message for me if you have thoughts you’d like to share with the group before Wednesday night. Otherwise, see you there!
