This is just speculation. Could the church have been founded by lustful men who wanted women to submit to them? They decided to use the threat of hell
to scare women into submission. They then made it so women could not be priests or part of the churches hierarchy in order to keep women oppressed? I
have no evidence to prove this its just a thought.
The culture which the Bible came out of was essentially a society where women were bought and sold as wives and sex slaves.
The modern Christian idea of "monogamy" and "adultery" are entirely anachronistic (out of historical context) concepts; they are later additions to
the Biblical faith. In the ancient culture which the Bible came from, a male could have as many wives and sex slaves as he could purchase; adultery
was a private property offence; if one of the male's sex slaves merely followed her heart and her desire, both she and the person she had a
relationship were executed, as were women who were not found to be virgins at the point of their marriage.
Women could also be taken captive as sex slaves during military campaigns. Really the Biblical faith is a savage reminder of a barbaric and brutal
world and has no place in the modern world; the Jesus of the Gospels, contrary to popular opinion was hardly any better since he promoted strict
adherence to the letter of the "Law and the Prophets" and predicted that the (Biblical) Law would never pass away until heaven and earth passed away;
he was really an extremely primitive religious fanatic.
Numbers 31:7-18: "..Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he
demanded. .... Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them
Deuteronomy 20:10-14: "When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women,
children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you."
The fact that there are still fanatics in the modern world who consider Moses and Jesus to be role models of "goodness" is simply a testimony to the
savagery of the modern world and the malevolent effects of religious hypnosis and indoctrination.
