Let's flush that out a little

This is too funny. Here are bits and pieces of a forum thread.


A - I think we would all agree that women are the weaker vessels wouldn't we?

B - (choke)

C - scripture doesn’t say so.
says we are to treat women as the weaker vessel.
i think.

A - you may be right, C

A - actually "treat them with respect as the weaker partner"...1 Peter 3:7

B - weaker as in our muscles aren't as strong?

C - as being heirs together of the grace of life

- Husbands are to dwell with their wives according to knowledge (gnosis) giving honor unto the wife AS the weaker (more unfirm) vessel. etc. ....

E - Weaker as in lessor authority.

B - that's weak.

D - It's not about authority. Its about the vessel/instrument. Skeuos = instrument, IOW, the physical body.

A - I think you need to flush that out a little more so it makes sense


Anyway, some people who comment here are in that thread. And I have discovered a truly wonderful blog in the process.
