-"I am a feminist
and take issue with.1Peter
3:1-6. Men have dominated women to their hurt since the beginning of
time and I feel verses like this in the Bible simply perpetuate male dominance."
If you are upset, you must
be feeling that any dominance can have an adverse
affect upon you.
Just as in one's spiritual
life, anyone's physical dominance also has to be allowed; your boss, the
authorities, etc. You can always move away from that which you determine
to be not good.
Some feminists though, are
just plain nuts! A lot of feminism is a misnomer
for 'anti maleism'.(male
separating the natural relationship of a man and woman:.Romans
If feminism has to do with
women gaining the power to exercise rights, what they feel should be their
rights, does that mean they were wrong before in lacking any power of femininity?
Do women become feminists because they feel they have no right to be feminine?
Is feminism really fear of femininity; women afraid to be women or is it
a cover for ignorance of same or ignorance and shame? Do women become feminists
because they dislike men.(a
because they dislike femininity? Why would a woman exchange her power of
femininity for concepts of feminism? Women seeking equality with men lack
ambition! Ha ha! Maybe they just like to wear the pants like a man?.Deuteronomy
22:5 "The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither
shall a man put on a woman's garment, for all that do so are abomination
unto the LORD thy God.".Why?.Matthew
19:4 "And he answered and said unto them, Have you not read, that he
which made them at the beginning made them male and female?"
3:1-6 talks of a woman who was willingly subject.(adaptable).to
a man, the meaning of the word 'lord' in this passage of scripture. Sara
here, trusted in her Creator and was happy to adapt in the unit that is
a male/female relationship.
In spiritual life, Christ
'to belong to Him whom you have allowed dominion of your heart and life,
the One in whom you feel that the best for you will always be His motivation,
means to have the same nature in you that He has).to
those who allow Him to be in their heart.
In this, both in the spiritual
and the physical, it's a matter of belief and trust. Belief in, that a
person believes that He is fully capable of being Lord of his life.(health,
wealth, circumstances, provider, etc.).and
trust, in that you are confident that His working in you is onward, upward
and for your ultimate good. If you are unwilling to allow what is good
for you, you don't trust Him and believe this. If you trust the Lord in
your heart, you'll trust the Lord in another's heart. Perhaps ask yourself,
who do you trust and why. Your life will progress toward more good when
you focus upon that which is good. Decide what is good for you.
Stereotyping all dominance
heartfelt involvement. Perhaps your fears of a domineering male are building
a wall comprised of hate and resentment, isolating you within a self imposed
protective mode, thus severing you from needed social interactions. A person
in a so-called love/hate relationship is not in a love
relationship at all.
Allowing male dominance
is one thing and avoiding one who domineers
you is an entirely different thing. There are many good men who also have
similar motivations regarding their women.
Emmanuel came not to dominate
anyone, but to be their Lord so their lives would be better:.John
10:10. Emmanuel draws, whereas
the carnal nature of man enforces:.John
-What about those couples
together for 50 years of more? What is their secret?
Some couples stay together
because they are constantly growing in love. Life to them is an adventure
to be experienced together. Other couples may stay together out of need
and/or habit. There's no doubt a bit of all this mixed together. It's decisions
along the road of the relationship on the part of each in it, that enable
the relationship to carry on. Some relationships flourish. Others languish.(*).
Some who divorce, for one reason or the other have made another decision,
that of, not willing to coincide,
not willing and not caring anymore to continue adapting
to each other.
