Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

    I know exactly where it is.

    It's just getting all the fragments working in symphony that's the challenge.

    Maybe he is saying that women don't get the gift of speaking in tongues?

    Here is an article that argues both ways about it:

    You're right, I think.
    Some here will duck and dodge as suits the moment, but the Witnesses do have a fairly accurate comprehension of the commands about silent-women, and 'what-da-ya-know' but the women are quiet in their Kings Halls services, and do not deliver speeches or sermons. Even when visiting pagans (like me) the man speaks out and his lady will stay quiet. A JW couple have visited us for decades (they definitely like my wife's cappuccinos) and although the woman is 'quick as flash' in mind, if she wants to make a point during discussion she will zip through the pages of her bible and show her partner a passage, and he will be corrected and continue without her saying hardly a word.

    Your command reminded me of Paul's, just a bit.

    I do not permit Hypatia_Alexandria, Mountain Man, and JimL to speak here. They are to remain silent.
