two stories

I'm glad that there are two creation stories and four gospels in the holy book of my faith. It is a reminder that there can be different views of the same subject. And that reminder is also seen in the decision making process of Conservative Judaism. The governing body is expected to come with two documents that will be authoritative. One is expected to approve of the subject and the other to disapprove. And this has happened before on different subjects.

Perhaps Christians with out two testaments, with our four gospels, with scripture passages that contradict each other such as Paul approving a woman as noted among the apostles vs. saying women should keep silent, should take a leaf from Conservative Judaism and respectfully disagree.
