    Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting my only living aunt. While at her house, I noticed a Bible on a small table. It was KJV, Red Letter, Large Print, Old Scofield Study System, Oxford University Press.

    I picked it up and started looking in the index. It happened to open at the page from feel to fetch. Near the bottom of the page was the word female. It referenced Gal 3:28. I looked it up. “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” In other words, we are all the same. Verse 29 goes on to say; “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    Does this override or contradict what Paul writes to the Ephesians? “Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.” ( Eph 5:22 NKJV ) And his letter to the Colossians, “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.” ( Col 3:18 NKJV ) In both letters the Greek word is hupotasso ( hoop-ot-as'-so ) which is translated as subject and submit. They basically mean the same thing.

    Also think about this: Does this mean that a female cannot be a minister of the word? Does it matter to Jehovah, or to Jesus?

    While reading about Paul's writing his second letter to the Corinthians, I happened to notice Paul's statement at 2 Cor 11:31.
    "The God and Father of out Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not." ( KJV )

    "God knows I am not lying. He is the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and he is to be praised forever." ( NCV )
    If he is the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, how can Jesus also be God, and be his own Father?

    Let’s see: How would a person who believes and teaches the “Trinity” explain this scripture?

    In answer Jesus said to him: ‘If anyone loves me, he will observe my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. Whoever does not love me does not observe my words. The word that you are hearing is not mine, but belongs to the Father who sent me.’” ( John 14:23-24 NWT )

    Jesus answered and said to him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word, and My Father shall love him. And We will come to him and will make a dwelling place with him. The one who does not love Me does not keep My Words. And the Word which you hear is not Mine but of the Father who sent Me.’” ( John 14:23-24 LITV )

    Jesus answered and said unto him, ‘If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.’” ( John 14:23-24 KJV )

    Hmmmmm!!! :(:eek:
