Most people want to stick their head in the sand and ignore problems, in an effort to avoid conflict. I refuse to be that passive person. Problems are there to be fixed, which means that first they have to identified. Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

comment How is this passage on the authority of women to be interpreted?
@ChrisB., while I would say that yes, he gives the reason so there is no reason to look for another; in the main, I don't think cultural interpretation ever applies unless the Bible tells us specifically that's how we need to look at it. Of course, here we are told specifically that the reason is founded in the created order that God established.

comment How is this passage on the authority of women to be interpreted?
To be more precise, I'm fine with cultural arguments ONLY if the Bible tells us that the verses in question are culturally-specific, not if someone just thinks they are. For example, the law of circumcision was fulfilled with the coming of Christ, so that law is now see as being only for a certain time.

@swasheck, there were definitely more verses that could have been brought in, I didn't try to find every single one. The 'occasion for writing' is covered in examining the context, which is done through the Grammatical-Historical method, and doesn't have the same subjectivity as the S-C method.

Hmmm, while I would say it is the only, absolute way to interpret this, we are all finite and imperfect.
