This is not an attempt at trolling - rather a curiosity on how Christians defend the following contradictory parts of their scripture, which were compiled in a essay I read online. Man is greater than woman - so much to the point she can't even speak amongst the other men? Slavery accepted? Innocent children not allowed into heaven? Quite frankly I find the text above me absolutely repulsing. Yet Christians say - we were all created equal? How does a Christian defend this? Again, not trolling ‚Äď yet wanting to understand these views.
