There is way too much emphasis on what the Bible means to me or you, personally. I don't read it to hear what I want to hear; I read it to hear what God has to say. So I'm not interested in sugar coating the truth. I am not interested in flat out ignoring verses in the Bible because I've found some personal reason to think that I should.
I've been pointing out what I see as obvious contradictions. Even if I marry one day and find the idea of submitting to another human being absolutely insufferable, that DOES NOT give me the freedom to reinterpret the Bible in some other way. It doesn't matter what I personally think God should have to say on the matter of a woman's place in the world. It only matters what God actually says about it.
When God says He created man and he became a living soul when God breathed life into him, and that He then put this man to sleep and created a woman from his rib, and then someone here goes on to say "well maybe what God really did was create man through evolution", then we have a serious problem. If you don't believe the whole Bible, you're just picking and choosing what you want to believe, making up your own religion as you go.
