Yesterday, while walking home from doing several errands, the thought occurred to me: “A good woman appreciates a good man.” Am I right or wrong? A woman does not want a man who is a “sissy”, to use a word we don’t hear anymore. Why? Because being a “sissy” seems to be sociably acceptable these days. Perhaps it might even be necessary to define what a “sissy” is: “a person regarded as effeminate or cowardly.” And it stands to reason, a man who wants to fulfill a role he can never do, as a woman, can only mean he is a coward to stand up and be a man.
The same for women. A good men wants a good woman. Not a woman who thinks she’s a man, or carries herself like a man, but someone who knows how to compliment a man. One of the first things a child learns, especially when drawing, the first language of children, is the difference between the two. However, the devil is attacking us regarding this topic and we have the church to blame for this!
Sadly, and listen to me, when the issue comes up whether women can serve in the ministry as pastors its advocates are quick to take this text out of context in order to prove their point:
“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.” Gal 3:28 (KJV)
Paul was not confused regarding this matter because he knew how to distinguish the difference between a man and a woman. There is no way he would countenance the destruction the role each gender would have in the church. Paul knew what God wrote in Genesis:
“Male and female created He them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.” Gen 5:2 (KJV)
So, why would Paul contradict God’s Word? He wouldn’t. Nor should we. Paul was speaking about being accepted, not roles. He is clear regarding the distinction which is made between Jews or Greeks insofar as the church is concerned. He is well aware of the difference between being in “bonds” or being “free”, and insofar as gender is concerned, he was fully aware the method for a male to be acceptable in the Jewish faith was to undergo circumcision, something a woman could not do, therefore only males were able to be absorbed into the Jewish faith having not been born one. Only a man could receive, as it were, the “right hand of fellowship”, whereas a woman had to depend upon marrying someone in order to be considered such and even then she’d only be a second-class citizen at best.
So, thankfully, the Christian ordinance was clarified. Women did not need to undergo any rigorous or surgical change but only admit to being a believer and like a man could be dipped and become a full member in good and regular standing having been baptized. But this did not mar what a woman was, could do, or become. Her distinction did not change. She was still a woman and a man would still be a man and never the twain should meet into one EXCEPT it take place in marriage. And, thankfully to the United States and its current president, now that is all confused and messed up!
So, when the proponents use this verse to justify their opinion regarding women being “as” men in serving God, they in essence adopt the mess we’re now struggling with, as men and women having no difference. This having no difference has infiltrated society by erasing the distinction we first learned as children to the point where children are now being taught there is no gender, we are all alike, can use the same bathroom, homosexuality is really normal and not a perversion, and our identity both as Christian as well as human is in trouble. We’re in serious trouble.
When I see a man walking like a sissy, dressed as a woman, switching and twitching with their make-up and eyebrows tweaked, it just makes me sick. It makes me want to drag that person into the nearest church and pray for a change to come but the problem is, I’m dragging “it” to where the problem originated! And not where it should be to find the solution!
Our enemy is so cunning having us caught up in the act of “coveting” what is not ours. I don’t have any desire, nor should any man, as serving in the capacity only women should have by right as per their gender. It is an honorable place only they can serve. Only a woman can make a wife. Only a man can be a husband. And should anyone, at all, become confused as to what God had in mind when He made them, simply look down. The proof should be conclusive enough.
