If I was told to live according to a book that included verses like this:

Eve was punished severely for her attempt to gain knowledge, for disobedience and for exerting independence from her husband. I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing... Your desire will be for your husband and he will rule over you." Genesis 3:16

"For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head;" 1 Corinthians 11:9, 10.

“Wives submit to your husbands, as is fitting to the Lord.” Colossians 3:18

I would kick up a stink. I often wonder how I live in a world with 2 billion people who don't.


  1. lol I won't get into a theological debate, but there's a lot more to it than that.

  2. Love it!
    I hear you sister (brought up with the same book!).
