We received two great responses from our religious post yesterday here in Cyrsti’s Condo:
- KeithJune 5, 2019 at 10:44 AM“Genesis 1:27: “God created man(kind) in his image……….male AND female he created them”. It is not the exclusionary connector, OR, but the inclusive connector AND. We all have varying PROPORTIONS OF BOTH, according to the first book of the bible, the introduction to our connectedness to God. As and deepens in their spiritual awareness one tends to understand the scriptures at a deeper level, as originally intended. Thanks for your post.”
- GracieJune 5, 2019 at 9:49 PM“I have a hard time getting too excited about Deuteronome 22:5 after a little scholarly research. Although not completely understood, there is some speculation that it may have had to do with admonition of some pagan rituals that were performed crossdressed. Or in a society where men and women socialized separate from each other, it was a way to get together with the opposite sex for illicit purposes. If taken too literally, one could suppose that the majority of contemporary western women will be going to hell for wearing pants, and St. Joan of Arc is also burning in hell.”
- Thanks to both of you for responding!
