Storyline

As the video continually freezes when she watches her favorite Korean show online, Umma is able to convince Appa to upgrade to a faster and thus more expensive Internet package. However, when Appa learns from Enrique that Daniel, who owns Crash-Fit, the gym next door to the store, has a fast and reliable Internet package with free WiFi for members, Appa does whatever he can, short of becoming a gym member, to get the password to Daniel's WiFi instead of paying for the upgraded Internet package himself. Meanwhile, Umma has pressured Janet into doing a Bible passage reading at this Sunday's church service, Janet who has of late done whatever she can to get out of going to church altogether. Pastor Nina asked if only to put forward a face of the younger generation, who are now sorely lacking at their church services in their entirety.

Disappointed with this episode
2 January 2020 | by redjar-50758See all my reviews

I really love this tv show but I felt this episode was lazily made. The verses that come under fire in this episode (1 Timothy 2) are completely misrepresented. Those verses aren't "misogynistic" or contain "hate speech" they are just taken completely out of context. When reading the Bible you cannot interpret verses as though they were written today. The New Testament was written in Greek and not every word has a perfect translation into modern English. If you want to know what something means you must take a deeper look into a few things. Who was this addressed to? Why would this be something that those people need to know? What are the exact Greek words used to write this and what are their exact definitions? For example there are many words in Greek that have multiple meanings but can only be translated to one English word, that doesn't give the whole meaning. The verses under attack, are advice to a certain early church, in this city the biggest religion is one that worships a goddess and has priestesses. The people in the city are assuming that this religion known as The Way must also be taken over by women. So when Paul says "I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man" he is saying do not allow these people to take over. The Greek word that is translated into authority literally means to forcefully take power over, like by means of battle. The other parts of this verse are also easily explained by a little research, we must stop being lazy and actually find the meaning in the Bible.
