Moses is a mythical Character and so is Abraham. The Jewish Messiah wasn't Jesus and never will be.

If Abraham or Moses existed can you please show me some scientific proof?

Who fits all the Messianic prophecies? Jesus did.

Once again, they are well documented in the Bible. So I wish to prove the reliability of the Bible first.

I mentioned the similarities between Arabs and Jews (who trace their ancestry to Abraham).

Well here are some other verses which say the opposite:

"Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."--1 Tim. 2:11-14

Christianity is the reason for women's freedom and equality. The fact that all four gospels use woman as witnesses (which the ancient world regarded inferior by the way) is proof that woman are important.

The ancient world said that woman should not be educated. Christianity said that woman should learn in submission. This verse says that woman should be educated. The only job that woman are not permitted to have is being a priest or a pastor. It is the different calling that God has given them.

3Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. (1 Corinthians 11:3)

Notice how they say the head of Christ is God? Just as the Son submits to the Father, the wife should submit to the husband. Yet, just as the Son and the Father are equally God, the man and the woman are equally human and in status.

"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" (Exodus 22:18) this verse is responsible for the death of ten of thousands of women.

A significant number of those witches were men. Perhaps you've ignored the other verses that condemn sorcerers.

Look at Christianity 800 years ago it was leading crusades against Muslims, Jews and Pagans but today it doesn't do that because do you know why because the church doesn't follow the Bible. They use to burn Heretics but once again it doesn't do that anymore because it has change since then.

Leading crusades? The Muslims struck first, however I am not trying to justify the CATHOLIC CHURCH. Once again, nonbelievers try to put all forms of Christianity (and nonforms of Christianity) together in a category.

You missed my entire point. My point is the doctrine of Christianity, stop diverting the topic to its fallible followers.

Once again, do you believe in absolutes?

May God Bless You All
