At least Modern Herodians (“religious” secular authorities) acknowledge with the words “now, women are equal with men,” that once upon a time, women were not equal with men. But contrary to Modern Herodian doctrine, I dare to go here and say that “women still are not equal with men.” And contrary to Modern Pharisee doctrine (callous ecclesiastiacal authorities), I dare to go there and say that “women have never been equal with men.”
In Modern Pharisees attempt to ingratiate themselves with secular authorities and westernized women, they have come up with the doctrine that “women ‘were’ equal with men” in the Garden of Eden before the fall. Which is nothing but them being politically correct while knowing based on scripture, that women ‘now’ are not equal with men in authority.
The Modern Pharisee doctrine that “women ‘were’ equal with men” takes out of context the biblical fact that God created male and female the same being (man). And God gave both the male and the female dominion over animals.
Genesis 1:26-27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let [them] have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created [man] in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
But being the same being has nothing to do with being the same in rank and in authority. Yes, God do look at males and females as equal beings in his eyes, but God has never and will never look at males and females as equal in authority.
Modern Pharisees disregard the biblical fact (to appease women) that God created Adam FIRST, and then Eve second, because Eve was made [for Adam]; Adam wasn’t made for Eve.
Genesis 2:18, 20-23 “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet [for him]. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet [for him]. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”
I Corinthians 11:7-9 “For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman [for the man].”
Since the reality is that God created Eve for Adam, how than would that reality make Eve equal with Adam? When she was created [for him]. The doctrine of “women ‘were’ equal with men” is nothing but a doctrine against reality, by Modern Pharisees.
It’s absurd to even fathom that Adam and Eve were ever equal in authority. If Adam and Eve were equal in authority than that means that man (the species) is equal with God in authority. Since God created man [for himself], and that creating a being for another being, doesn’t necessarily make the being who was created for another being, a subordinate to the being that they were created for. All according to Modern Pharisee doctrine concerning Adam and Eve.
Colossians 1:12-16 “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things (including man) were created by him, and [for him].”
Obviously the two scenarios, God creating man for him and God creating Eve for Adam, are similar on purpose for a purpose. The purpose being that the being who is created for another being, is subjugated to that other being who they are created for. Thus, the being (such as Eve) who was created for another being (such as Adam) isn’t equal in authority with the being who they were created for.
I Timothy 2:11-15 “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. [For Adam was first formed], then Eve (for Adam). And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
Besides, God would have a big problem with some being (like man) who was created for him, calling themselves equal in authority with him.
Isaiah 40:13, 25 “Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him? To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.”
So, should men have a big problem with women and other men (lying preachers and politicians) who claim that women, who were made [for men], were equal with men or are equal with men now.
Modern Pharisee contradiction comes into play when they state that “women ‘were’ equal with men,” but at the same time they say that Adam had the authority to check Eve from ever again eating of The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, while restraining himself from never eating of the tree. All before God cast a sentence of submission upon all women starting with Eve, who first ate of the forbidden tree.
Genesis 3:12-13, 16 “And the man (Adam) said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Unto the woman he (God) said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”
Simply put, if Adam had the authority to check Eve before God cast the sentence of submission upon Eve from eating of the forbidden tree, then obviously, Eve wasn’t equal with Adam in authority, before God cast the sentence of submission upon Eve. Since Adam had the authority to check Eve before he ate of the forbidden tree himself, and before the sentence of submission was cast upon Eve, and subsequently all women thereafter.
This same contradictive doctrine also goes on ‘now’ with Modern Herodians, Modern Sadducees (Antinomians), and western society in general. Whereas, when a wife does something ill behaved, it’s all of a sudden her husband’s fault (never her own fault), because her husband should have checked her behavior or already had her in check. How can anyone have the authority to check someone’s ill behavior or have them in check already, when the ill behave person is supposedly equal in authority with them? Like ill-behaved wives are supposedly equal in authority with their husbands in western society. If western society feels that it’s the husband’s responsibility to check his wife’s ill behavior, than the reality is that wives are not equal in authority with their husbands. If again, the husband has the responsibility to check his wife when she acts ill behave.
Do you see what I am saying? Do you see these preachers and politicians’ hypocrisy when it comes to the gender equality of men and women that they advocate? Yet they allocate all the responsibility in the world to a husband to check his wife’s ill-behavior.
You will find the hypocrisy of all the responsibility they put upon men (without all the rights, privileges, and authority that accompanies all this responsibility), on top of them advocating that women are equal with men in authority, more and more asinine as you keep reading posts in this blog and books from this organization.
