"Like, Paul says women should keep silent in church. I don’t know a single church where they say women can’t ask questions or talk in church. You could say, “oh, that was for that culture or that time,” so you get to a different point where you’re like, “these are the things that I think are essential.” When Jesus said to love your enemies, that’s not just for that time, that applies to everybody. And I don’t know how I make those decisions. There’s just some things that I pray to God to guide me in the right way and to guide me to the truth in the best way. To me, it seems like it would be hurtful or oppressive to tell a women that she couldn’t talk in a church meeting. When I see that put into practice, I see women talk in church meetings that I attend, and it’s cool. It’s smooth. It doesn’t seem to cause any trouble. But, when I hold on to anger or bitterness, or I gossip about people, or I indulge in sexual thoughts, or any of these other things that are forbidden by the Bible, I see the trouble that comes from that. So I think the verse that says, “taste and see that the Lord is good,” there’s like, this experiential aspect where I don’t believe the things that Jesus said because it’s written in the Bible, but put them into practice and you see the freedom that comes from not worrying about tomorrow or from forgiving everybody or for caring at people. For praying to God. The things that Jesus said to do bring life."
"I don’t know. I just feel stuck, like I’m afraid to take any steps, in case they’re the wrong ones."
