Male vs Female: Is It Equality We Seek?


Men are different from women. Otherwise, God wouldn’t have needed to make male and female.
Yet we obscure the boundaries between genders for the cause of equality.
God created us: male and female.
Man was given work. Woman was made to help him.

Woman was the only being created that was “suitable for man,” Genesis 2:20-25.
If women were created equal with man, one of us wouldn’t be needed.
We weren’t made to be like man. We were created to help man, in a way he couldn’t help himself.
We are different. (very different.
We have different roles to fulfill.
It gives purpose. We know what God expects
By seeking equality, we really show blasphemy against God.

When God’s created order is broken, man has problems.

Actions begin with choice.
Sin, of any kind, doesn’t just happen because of genes, environment or disease. We must think about it and choose it for it to result.
Thoughts control actions.
Actions become habits.
Habits form lifestyles.
When this lifestyle rebels against God’s structure, bondage results.
God describes this process. “But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives forth death,” James 1:14-15.

What happens when men ignore how God has made them (male and female)?
Romans 1:19-32 gives the process, “…For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, . . . Professing to be wise, they became fools. . . . For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

“For this reason, God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged their natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

“And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper. . . . (a list of wrongs ensues), that those who practice such things are worthy of death. . . .”

Not only have their bodies been hardened to their sin, but their minds have changed. Have you ever tried to reason with someone who has forsaken God? You can’t. Their mind is without truth or logic. God has given them over to a depraved mind.

Lot, Abraham’s nephew, lived in the city of Sodom. Rather than give the men of the city God’s visiting angels to be raped, Lot offered his two daughters to the men of the city to “do to them whatever (they liked),” (Genesis 19:1-11). Lot tried to negotiate with evil. He couldn’t reason with them, or even bribe them to do evil “more nicely.” They didn’t get their overnight. They chose, and chose, and chose. They ignored God. They forsook God’s truth and order of male and female. And God gave them over to their own depraved minds. God brought judgment.
[God spared Lot, because Abraham had petitioned God.]

Merging genders is rebellion against God.
Women make men act like women. (Does any man like the new football rules?)
Yet the same women seek to look, act and be like men.
When fathers are absent or too restrictive, daughters find a sympathetic ear with a same sex relationship, rather than trust a man.
When mothers rule over their homes, their sons often choose another man, rather than marry and live under another woman’s rule.
Women forsake their children to do man’s jobs, and no one raises the children.
We fight against God.
This destroys the family.

We defy our Creator by attacking the very man and woman He created.
Recently, a transgender, born male, was sentenced and put in prison with the women he had become. While there, he raped several of his fellow inmates. Why? His thoughts hadn’t become female by taking hormones and having surgery. He still thought like a man. Because he was a man, as God created him to be.
These sins attack the core of who God has made us to be: male and female.

Sin doesn’t stand still. It grows. Man falls farther from God.
Our rebellion causes a chain reaction that destroys as it spirals down.
Instead of being content with sin behind closed doors, those fighting God want special privileges. Same-sex marriages elevates them to church-member status. They can worship as one with society.
Once “married,” (before God?), they wish to raise a family, have children. They mimic the family unit that God created, while rebelling against His rules. Without obedience, they won’t have the same results. They face death.
This rebellion doesn’t just hurt the people who do them. They abolish the family by slurring what a family is. Who’s our father now?
They affect our children who must live under the laws. Men who feel like women today can use the same public bathrooms our children do. But they won’t stop at just using the bathrooms.
They influence how we see our own roles. Submissive wives and leading husbands are criticized as archaic. They cry, “What happened to equality?”

There never was equality. We are different. That’s how we were made.

What can we do?
We can easily judge others for their disobedience, but we must look at our part.
Wives, our role as helpmeet, is hard. No one likes to submit. But being a helpmeet requires submitting.
Rebellion is rampant, because moms aren’t disciplining their children God’s way, or even any way.
Are we teaching our children the Bible? Children and their parents must know truth to combat wrong.
Divorce is common, separation is acceptable, and why marry anyway?
Families are under attack.

We must model what is right, good and God-given.
Show the world what a family should be. God gave families to model His love, protection, and truth. It should be different from what the world does. We get our rules and ways from God Who knows how things were made. We must look to Him for His rules. Then strive to live them with God’s Spirit.

And pray, like Abraham, beseeching God on behalf of families, to spare judgment and allow His light to pierce hurting but rebellious hearts; so that, not only our children, but our neighbors’ children can see God and know Him.

There will never be equality between the sexes. If there is, destruction is near.
