Re: Misogyny?

You left out one of my favorite OT passages where humans are created by gods and the gods are both male and female.  This is in fact the first creation - the creation of Adam and Eve is completely different - a second creation.

Genesis 1:26-28 (NIV):  Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

In "The Hidden King James Bible" by Kogelschatz, you will find that the Theosophical Society has a treasure trove of original early Hebrew scriptures and that the words for gods in the above passage are the seven Elohim which included Michael and Gabriel, as well as seven additional female Elohim (different name, which I can't fine) - all of equal status.  Have also taken Biblical Archaeology review off and on for a number of years and they have found many statuettes and alters that represent both a male and a female god of equal status in early Hebrew settlements.  My point is that According to Kogelschatz and evolving archaeology, the early Hebrews worshipped both a male and female god who were on the same level.  This is true of many primitive/early religions.  Then as they progressed they continuously modified their belief system by incorporating more and more foreign material.  Judaism/Old Testament is an amalgamation of many different religions from Sumerian, to Babylonian, to Egyptian and others.  Then the New Testament as translated by the King James folks (nobody but nobody knows what they used for source documents) had an agenda so you can't even take that as a "correct" translation of whatever it was that they were translating.  Add to that that Jesus' message was spoken in Aramaic (not Greek) and that none of the gospels were written by disciples and who knows how close the final "product" is to the original?

Getting back to the original question on the thread - we are each an eternal spirit separate from our body.  Each and every human.  From the person or persons you hate the most to the ones you love the most and you yourself - and, we are all equal.  As the eternal spirit that each of us are, there is no gender as spirit.  None.  Jesus said: "God is spirit and the true worshippers must worship in spirit and in truth" - which says that gender is neither a part of god or worship.
