That there is a reason for my feminist rantings and ravings. This is the message on one Christian website about the role of women in the society:
Did you know that a woman can be cursed just for making her husband jealous?
Also, if a husband becomes jealous, it is not a sin to the man for becoming jealous but it is a sin to the woman for causing jealousy. The consequences of this are at an all time high right now in the World. A woman who is guilty of this will have two common characteristics.
Her belly will swell and her hip will rot. Hip replacement surgery is at an all time high and about the "belly to swell", well this is extremely evident, especially here in America.
ISA 40:25 "To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One.
Men and Women equal?
Women are made separate from man by substance, not to be equal, but to be made from the man, for the man?
Adam was made from clay. Eve was made from one of Adam's ribs. A Male and a Female.
One created from the dust, and one created from man.
One created to serve God. And one created to serve man so he can better serve God.
How did something so simple get so terribly screwed up?
A Woman and Man Equality is a dark, deaf, dumb and blind sin which causes confusion.
Why would a woman want to be equal with a man? Why not a woman be a woman, and a man be a man?
Plain and Simple.
Men are hard and women are soft. Opposite as they should be, to not be equal, but complete.
Men are Strong, Women are Weak. Not equals, but better yet, complete.
Women have Wisdom, Men have Knowledge, completed not by equality, but complete as one in the understanding thereof.
A Woman wanting to be equal with a different type of gender is shallow and is caused by confusion.
Women are not beneath men, unless of course, they are beneath them while raising them up to the Lord in Prayer.
A Man does not need a woman to be equal with him, he desperately needs her to complete him.
And no, these are not jokes. In case you haven't seen enough, here's a little bit more:
You will love your husband as though he were Jesus himself, or you will hate him the same,
yes as though he were Jesus himself.
You will love you man, or you will love your money. You cannot love both.
Who are you serving?
Are you at home serving him and the Kingdom of Heaven?
Or are you out in the world trying to be equal to man and his sin?
IF A WOMAN DOES NOT BUILD AND COMPLETE THE MAN WHOM SHE WAS CREATED FOR,
THEN SHE SEVERELY HARMS THE MAN, AND MAKES HIM INCOMPLETE.
LIKE JESUS SAID, "YOU ARE EITHER FOR ME, OR YOU ARE AGAINST ME." ONE OR THE OTHER.
NO GREY AREA.
One might argue that this is just one rather deranged person preaching on the internet. Perhaps. But it's not very hard for me to find many, many websites with essentially the same message. A message that seems to strike a chord in the hearts of many American fundamentalists.
