    Women. God’s afterthought and man’s curse to rule.

    I think it quite ironic that God, who tells us to reproduce as his first commandment to man in Genesis 1, does not give us something to reproduce with till Genesis 2; 18. Further, only after a severe chastisement without correction, even to death, an immoral concept, after we ate of the tree of knowledge, are men given what is required for reproduction; the desire and mental capacity to do so.

    God never tells Adam why he is being chastised. This is an expression of hate on God’s part because there is no evil in wanting to become as God as scriptures urge us to do. Note here that I take the Jewish view of our elevation in Eden and not the fall interpretation that Christianity mistakenly puts on it.

    Chastisement without correction is just cruelty and thus unjust on God’s part. That is the message of Eden. God is unjust. If so, the inequality built into the bible, where men are cursed to rule over women, ----- is unjust.

    Genesis 3;16 Unto the woman he 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.

    As a man, I am not pleased that God has cursed my fellow man to have to suffer ruling over women. To rule over women is to be responsible to them and their demands. I think we should stop being slaves to women and give them full equality. Men owe it especially to men and to a lesser degree to women and between you and I, justice demands it ------, and so would all just people.

    As a man, are you ready to shed your yoke of slavery to women and reject God’s command to rule over them?

    Women are our equal partners in life, just as responsible for the happiness of the family as we are (if not more so), and thinking, feeling, intelligent human beings.

    They are not chattel. They are not possessions. They are not sub-human.

    I know some people really hate these facts. Tough shit.

    I have not in my life met a man who rules his wife, but the other way around is quite common.

    Every time I wash one and hang it up.

    So how does your wife rule you? Please explain.

    No argument but you may have noticed that Christianity has instituted their subservient position to men.

    In bright men yes.

    They seem to be the minority as women are quite far from being treated as equal within society at large.

    God's afterthought? Seriously? Have you ever read the scriptures?

    You're seriously trying to claim that God didn't plan and created man but failed to give him a way to procreate and said "Oh wait, Maybe I should fix this?"

    No where in the scriptures does it even imply that.

    You may not like serving women, but too bad. As men that is our calling: To serve our wife and family.

    There is quite a bit of confusion about how men are to be the head of the house. It's important to remember that when Christ taught His disciples about leadership, He told them He wasnt teaching them to lead in the way the Gentiles thought of leadership.
