By God's Design: Woman is Weaker Vessel, Man Her Protector
God was accused by the aborticidal Dawkins as misogynistic and homophobic displaying his unparalleled disregard for justice, fairness, and ignorance of the book he hated most like most of his peers, the atheists!
The Bible is a book that contains pronouncements, information, and directives coming from the mind of a being it calls "God". This God according to Dawkins do not exist. But despite of his belief that God doesn't exist, God is the only person he hate most and hate everything connected to Him like the Bible. He accused God of being:
1. Unforgiving control-freak
3. Bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser
13. Capriciously malevolent bully
So, God is misogynistic?
Misogynistic is defined in the dictionary as a hater of woman. How can a Creator who created the first woman be misogynistic?
GENESIS 2:18, 21-24
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.
21 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;
22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 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.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
God's intention in creating the woman is surely to be the mate of the man for the perpetuation of the species.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
It is not God's intention in creating the woman to be the leader or someone dominating the male above her but a helpmate, and to satisfy the desires of the man He created.
Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
In creating the woman, God wants to satisfy the desire of a man and symbiotically the woman also. See how wise the Creator is?
To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.
But to maintain order and prevent strife that may lead to evil, God placed the woman under the authority of the man.
I TIMOTHY 2:11-14
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Placing the woman under the authority of the man is not being misogynistic, but being compassionate, loving, and with utmost concern for the woman. God knows the physical constitution of the woman He created. He knows that the woman is inferior in strength. This further proves the scientific authenticity of the book that atheists like Dawkins hate most!
For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the LORD.
Being a treasured creation, the woman was placed by God under the dominion and care of the man. This doesn't mean that God is a hater of woman! Scientifically women are really weaker vessels.
I PETER 3:7
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
In an article written by Lowri Turner in Dailymail.co.uk dated April 28, 2008, comparisons were made with the organs of men and women and how they generally cope with illness. The article is titled “Are women really the weaker sex? The intriguing medical facts that settle the oldest argument of all.” It suggested that although male and female genders do not outdo the other when it comes to eye and ear problems, there are distinct differences in other parts of the body in coping with health problems.
For instance, men are weaker in their organs that have to do with cancer and heart. On the other hand, women are weaker when it comes to bones, muscles, brain, and the immune system. The conclusion of the author is that woman is really the weaker gender. For space considerations we only produce an excerpt on the brain -
Mental health is an area where men appear not to fare well. For a start, men are more than twice as likely to be affected by schizophrenia. 'Up to 40 per cent more men are diagnosed with schizophrenia than women - and their symptoms tend to be more severe and treatment less effective,' explains Jane Harris of the charity Rethink….
Boys are also more likely to be diagnosed with the developmental conditions autism and Asperger's syndrome. The Autism Society says boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with the condition than girls.
This may be because they are exposed to higher levels of testosterone before birth, affecting their brain development, according to research by Professor Simon Baron-Cohen from the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge.
But not all conditions affecting the brain are more concentrated in the male section of the population. 'Women get postnatal depression, and the menopause can be a trigger for depression,' says Marjorie Wallace, founder of mental health charity Sane. Depression is more common in women - one in four (three million) women will require treatment for depression at some time, compared with one in ten men.
This higher rate of depression means that, when it comes to mental health, more women are affected overall.
On the immune system, the difference between the genders lies in immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism.
'Women are three times as likely to get rheumatoid arthritis as men,' says Dr Annabel Bentley, Bupa's assistant medical director (around 375,000 women have the disease, compared with 125,000 men).
Adding up the number of individuals affected by all these conditions, the conclusion of the article is that women are the weaker sex.
The loving Creator admonished the man He created to love and to protect his mate that He gave.
EPHESIANS 5:23, 25
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
For the husband to love and protect his wife is an injunction from a loving God. It shows the Maker’s concern for the weaker gender. It does not say anything about giving up one’s liberty to be ruled by another.
But displaying his utmost ignorance and injustice, Richard Dawkins charged God of being misogynistic.
God making the woman a weaker vessel shows the wisest thinking that no atheist will ever appreciate! A husband and a wife must have the best harmonious relationship.
In human society, it known for a fact that there is strife, power grabbing, and pride. This results into war and other criminal activities. This is true even within a family. The man and the woman after the sweet years of being together may turn the years into one of bitterness and strife. An unwise woman maybe the cause.
PROVERBS 21:19, 9
19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
This problem was solved by God beforehand by putting the woman under the authority of the man - certainly not because of being misogynistic.
I am sure that Richard Dawkins knows this problem about women who do not acknowledge God's existence. A believing woman is God's wonderful gift for a man.
I PETER 3:5-6 (RSV)
5 So once the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves and were submissive to their husbands,
6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are now her children if you do right and let nothing terrify you.
Placing woman under the dominion and care of a man is not being misogynistic but being caring and protective of the very creation that He intended to bear the SEED of salvation for all humanity!
How about being homophobic?
More to come.
God bless you.
