This post was written by Trey from a comment on this post. Yes, there were women who were terribly angry and offended with Trey for writing this and wrote that it wasn’t biblical. I added scripture to everything he wrote to prove that what he wrote was scriptural. One woman asked him if his wife treated him this way. You can go to the post and see how he responded.
If anything Trey wrote upsets or offends you, research your Bible to see if what he said is true or not. As Christian women, nothing that is in the Word should offend us, even the hard truths because remember, God’s ways are not our ways; For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:9).
“Christian women are floundering today. They have no idea what they are supposed to do with their lives.”
This is it in a nut shell. Women don’t understand the truth (what the Bible says) about why they were created and what their purpose is on this earth.
Women! Don’t be deceived by the lies of feminism! Women and men are not the same! They are not equal! Although equal in worth and value in the eyes of God and equal in the inheritance of the kingdom, they are not equally created and are not equal in their roles here on this earth. Women were created and equipped to serve a completely different role on the earth than man. The Bible lays out and defines the role of the woman very clearly for anyone who is willing to read. Pray right now and ask God to open your eyes to His truth!
Women were created as a companion and a helper FOR the man. Yes, she was actually created FOR the man. (Genesis 2:18; 1 Corinthians 11:9)
She was created to bring glory to the man. (1 Corinthians 11:7)
She is to get married, have children, and keep house. (1 Timothy 5:14)
A woman’s husband is her head. He is her highest authority on this earth, second only to Christ in his authority over her. (1 Corinthians 11:3)
She is to submit to, serve and obey her husband in everything, as long as he does not ask her to sin. She is to do this even if her husband is mean, unreasonable and cruel and it causes her unjust suffering. (Ephesians 5:22-24; 1 Peter 2:19-23; 1 Peter 3:1; 1 Peter 3:5, 6; Titus 2:5; Colossians 3:18) “For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable to God. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps…Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously” (1 Peter 2:20, 21, 23) If you’re marriage is in crisis, please read this post.
She is to submit to her husband just as she would submit to Jesus Himself if He were living in the house with her. (Ephesians 5:22)
She is not to teach or have authority over any man in the church. (1 Timothy 2:12)
She is to remain silent in the corporate gatherings of the church while the teaching is occurring. Literally during this time, she is not to speak but if she desires to learn anything, she is to ask her husband at home. (1 Timothy 2:11; 1 Corinthians 14:34, 35)
In and through all of this she is to reverence her husband, showing him the highest form of respect, mingled with fear. (1 Peter 3:5, 6; Ephesians 5:33)
She is to understand that all of the service, submission, obedience, and reverence that she does for and to the glory of her husband, she is actually doing for and to the glory of the Lord. (Ephesians 5:22)
Ladies, if you are married you cannot say that you are serving the Lord unless you are obeying what He has commanded you regarding how you treat your husband.
How deep does this really go? In 1 Peter 3:6, it tells us that “Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord.” That word we translate into English as “lord” is the Greek word “kurios.” Kurios literally means an owner and master; a person who exercises absolute ownership rights. Sarah considered her husband to be her owner and her master and she is held up to you as an example to follow. Do you consider your husband to be your owner and your master? Does the way you treat him reflect this?
This is what woman was created for and what she is supposed to do with her life. This is where her life will find value, meaning, purpose, blessing and reward.
Just as Eve was deceived and led to the fall of mankind into sin, women today are being deceived and are leading to the fall the family, the church, and to all of Western Civilization.
Just as a wise woman can build her house up but the foolish woman can tear it down with her own hands, the same holds true for a civilization and we are seeing that unfold before our very eyes. The world is going to go the way it goes but as Christians, we are told to be in the world but NOT OF IT. As Christians our lives and marriages are supposed to look different. Does your life look different? Does your marriage look different? Are you really a Christian?
Are you living out the purpose for which you were created… serving, submitting to, obeying, and bringing glory to your husband, or are you tearing your house, your church, and all of civilization down with your own hands? Pray that God will open your eyes to His truth for when you know the truth, the truth will set you free.
Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
1 Corinthians 11:9
