“Good day, Lori. I must say that I have been blessed by your blog and YouTube videos. Yes, I’m one of your subscribers. I have been pondering and worrying in my heart over these messages that you teach. I have so many questions so I would be glad if you could help me answer them?”
“Why was the woman created?” Eve was created by God because “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” (Genesis 2:18).
“Is it only for the purpose of marriage and raising godly children that I was created for?” You were created to glorify God in everything you do. Since you want to glorify God, you obey Him. You search His Word to find His will. For those women who are unmarried, they are to be “holy both in body and in spirit” (1 Corinthians 7:34). If they don’t burn sexually and want to live their lives solely dedicated to serving the Lord, then this is biblical but most single people are not living this way.
“What is the essence of teaching about marriage when the Bible states that marriage is of no use in heaven. ‘For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.'” This doesn’t matter since marriage IS of use on this earth. God ordained marriage from the beginning and said that it was good. We are to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28) and produce godly offspring (Malachi 2:15). Marriage models Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:31, 32). God commands young women to “marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” (1 Timothy 5:14).
“If we all will be as angels in heaven, then I believe we should all have a purpose besides from marriage even for both male and female because we will give account of what we have achieved besides from marriage and children.” Our purpose is to glorify Him in everything, as I stated above. We glorify Him by obeying Him. His will for most men and women is to marry. “For it is better to marry than to burn” (1 Corinthians 7:9). Most people burn and this is why fornication abounds. Most adults want sexual intimacy and this is why we are to marry and not deprive each other. “Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control” (1 Corinthians 7:5).
“Can you give me Bible verses that says motherhood or how I served my husband and my family will be judged in heaven?” Here it is: “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12). One of the last acts that Jesus did was to wash His disciples feet and He told them to do likewise; for the greatest of all is the servant of all. The majority of women have been called to be a wife and mother. “Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety” (1 Timothy 2:15). Click here for those who are single or barren. All women were created to nurture.
“Won’t having careers that touched lives or won souls also count as ‘laying up treasures’?” Did you know that God never called women to careers? He never called them to be the providers of their families, yet almost all women pursue these things these days and they keep women from having children and being able to be home with their children.
Now, if a woman decides that she truly does not want to ever marry but dedicate her life to teaching children and sharing Jesus with others, then she is free to do this as long as she is holy both in body and spirit. In this way, she is storing treasures in heaven. If a woman can go through college without any or little debt and makes sure before her marriage that her husband wants her to have children and be home with them, then this is probably okay too* (see my comment below) but most universities are no place for godly women today, in my opinion. They teach nothing about biblical womanhood and everything about feminism.
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
*I greatly dislike telling women they can do things that aren’t in His Word. The women who “worked” in the Bible did so from their homes and God commands that I teach women to be lovers of their husbands and children and be keepers at home. He doesn’t commands that I decide all of the exceptions. All I know is that before birth control, women were more prone to marry and be home with their children. Birth control has led to the slaughtering of millions of unborn babies in the womb and feminism supports this and many other things that are evil such as career women instead of wives and mothers. Someone needs to teach the opposite ways of feminism, right?
