Battle of the Sexes
There seems to be a battle of the sexes between
certain women and men. What is this battle? Oh yes, the battle is for
equal pay, equal rights, and equal this, and equal that. Essentially it
is the feminist battle. Is this battle still going on? Did you know that
God has already given women and men all their God-given rights to be
whoever they want to be through Him?
There is neither Jew nor Greek. There is neither
bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all ONE IN
CHRIST JESUS. (KJV
If someone does not believe in creation or Jesus
than it would be understandable they would fight with the world to win
any and all political and societal rights. This is where feminism comes
from – it is a worldly thing that has consumed the minds of those who
do not believe in God or who are simply rebellious to God’s Word.
Believers should not be involved in this battle, and if they are,
they are confused and mislead with the rest of society.
God made male and female equal in every aspect. Man
and woman are on par with each other. God designed the relationship
between man and woman where they work together as a team because it is
the most beneficial. This is what marriage is supposed to be. God did
not make one sex better than the other.
It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a
HELPER suitable for him. (NIV Genesis 2:25)
Helper means to assist – to facilitate –
It is not good that the man should be alone; I
shall make him an HELP MEET for him. (KJV Genesis 2:25)
Help means to assist – to facilitate- to
lend a hand. Meet means to gather – to assemble – to come
The bible did not say it is not good for man to be
alone and so I will make him a bossy domineering, controlling woman to
tell him what to do.
When you do not have a relationship with your
Creator you do not understand “who you are” and “what your purpose
in life is”. So you create division in your life to “find
yourself” and become somebody worthwhile to yourself and to others.
Money and status symbols become more important in your life - it becomes
the only way to show yourself to others is through the use of what you
do and what you have.
If you are wrapped up within societies political
schemes and bureaucracies you will not understand your position as a
child of God. A child of
God does not have to fight for any rights – because they have already
been blessed with the freedom to be “who they are”.
Without God we can only be what we can be, or only
what we strive to be. That might be a feminist woman who strives to be
more powerful than her counterpart. If she wins this battle she feels
better about herself. Or it could be a man who believes that a woman’s
place is in the home making babies and cooking. This kind of attitude
can underestimate a woman’s worth in her community as well as in the
The truth is God has already blessed woman to be a
good mother instinctively but she is rebelling against her role. God has
already blessed man to be the man of his home and protect his family but
he is rebelling against his role. This happens because they are children
of the world rather than of God. If you accept a relationship with your
Creator and put Him first on your agenda list, there would be NO battle.
There would be NO battle in marriage either!
The battle to be better than a man or woman, or to
be equal to a man or woman is not a part of the Godly woman or man’s
life. This is something the world has concocted because of fear of lack
and the lack of faith. When a feminist woman believes she has to do and
be all the things a man is she leaves her positions and duties as a
woman in lack. Therefore, she would be better off not getting married or
having children because, frankly that is not very fair to anyone else
that she may be interconnected with.
Many people have evolved with the ways of society
and perceive the roles of man and woman has stereotypical, but that’s
the whole point. God created and designed the sexes to do best and to be
the most beneficial in their given roles. When we try and change
what God has already established it causes problems in marriage,
families, and society in general.
Remember, to all those who have put their trust and faith in Jesus Christ,
we are all ONE IN CHRIST.
