Does the Bible contradict itself?

This has been an excellent discussion on the Apostle Paul’s statements regarding women and teaching, preaching or leadership within the Body of Christ. This particular comment by TL at Women in Ministry points out how we need to read the Bible in context regarding the perceived “roles” of women in the church.

“we need to back up into chapter one and see that Paul was concerned about those who were trying to teach, but really didn’t know the Scriptures. They were involved in fables, endless geneologies, and debates instead of loving from a pure heart. They were likely legalists since Paul reprimanded them about the law being for sinners if used rightly. (which should give pause in this subject).” — read the rest here at Women in Ministry.
