Christianity was supposed to be about becoming like Jesus.  
We went in the wrong direction.

What about women?

Why God made woman
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.  - Genesis 2:18-23
  How sin came into the world  
We do not know if Adam was negligent by being absent or if he was "asleep at the wheel". It is a shame that neither Adam or Eve thought of asking God for help.

And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 1 Timothy 2:14

The curse on women
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  Genesis 3:16

"desire" = Teshuqah = an insatiable desire to control a person (predator's desire for prey).


The lot of women in history

Women are designed by God to be wives and mothers. For millennia, this has been manifest in the variety of families and family life around the world.  As weaker and subordinate, women have often suffered at the hands of those who are stronger. The weak have always been oppressed by the stronger until the advent of the Law through Israel and the later availability of Christianity. Hudson Taylor remarked after arriving in China in the 1800s that he did not think English women appreciated how much they owed to Christianity (Chinese women were treated rather badly). 

In the late 1800s many Christians abandoned Christianity for political progressivism. At the same time the ideas of Marxism and Feminism gained traction. This is because without Christ, most people began to see the emergent socialist state as the next natural evolutionary step to replace the family. A remnant family was still needed to produce children, but with public education and government intrusion, it would never again be what it had been for the entire previous history of the world.


The basic unit of human grouping is the family. A tribe is usually an extended family.  Those who live in harmony with the natural world God created usually live out the roles defined by nature. Being a wife and mother is not consider oppressive, exploitive, or degrading just natural.

Whether living as serfs or slaves in ancient kingdoms or as pioneers braving the elements of the frontier, living close to the natural world allows for families to thrive. The role of women is also manifest in natural terms as wives and mothers.
We see the beginning of what can be called "society" in village life. As people begin to see themselves more in relation to a community than a family, we begin to see the transition from the natural world to an artificial world. In this artificial world relationships are based on power and wealth (who owns the land and money). People establish "pecking orders" from the most powerful to the least. At first, this order is made by family grouping. Families try to arrange advantageous marriages to advance their positions. 
With money being the driving force of society, mechanization quickly follows. Wealth is accumulated through the exploitation of the labor of others. It is ironic that women are told that they are being "exploited" by being keepers of a home so that their labor can be exploited in the factory instead. As the pace of society quickens, wealth begins to be sought not for the family but for self.
Chemical and surgical technology allows women to avoid the direct consequences of conception. Family becomes even more of an actual hindrance. The opportunities for diversion, amusement, and entertainment allow women to live in a perpetual "moment" of indulgence. Society (employers and government) becomes a more real source of security and provision than family. 
The modern socialist state is an anomaly. It is based on debt and cannot last. It is only useful to Satan as a bridge to collectivize the world under his control. Once the state runs out of money to pay police, women are going to find that their status of equality will vanish. The world will return to the conditions before Christianity which were not at all advantageous to women and certainly not to women outside of the protection of families.


Women's Characteristics


There are characteristics of women that make them valuable helpers for husbands and suited to their natural role in families. Some of these qualities also make them particularly vulnerable to exploitation by Satan.  Like any characteristics, not everyone has the same ones or to the same degree. These characteristics they can be advantageous or disadvantageous or both.
  • Often women demonstrate an ability of steadfastness that can appear unassailable. This can be a a major asset in a family where a woman can maintain the integrity of the family. It can also become a problem for women who devote themselves to political philosophies, their employer, co-workers, school chums, ex-spouses, or friends. Divided loyalties often lead to divided families. 
Focused on the present
  • The ability of women to focus on the immediate gives them a particular advantage when dealing with children.  A common source of frustration for women is the lack of a focus on the present by their husbands. A woman voting may be more persuaded by someone who promises bounty today than someone who promises stability tomorrow.
Naturally trusting
  • Women are more inclined to consider what they hear to be true. The Bible cites as a reason women are not allowed to teach that they are more vulnerable to deception. This is a reason for their need to be protected and a key reason why Satan wants direct access to women.
  • Women are more tuned into things being wrong both with themselves and others around them. This can be useful as a sort of "early warning system". This characteristics can become a liability is it is used to be too quickly critical of others. A caring husband can provide an insular "wall of love" without which a sensitive woman can be diagnosed as "depressed" and put on medication.
  • Women can have an apprehensive sense of vulnerability to things that are unknown. Without reassurance from a husband, this can create a great deal of anxiety. Satan seeks to trade on insecurities to get people to willingly advance his plans for global collectivism under the guise of increased security.
  • Women have a need to be involved with other people. This makes them the "glue" that holds families together. It also makes them an essential target for Satan to weave into the fabric of his world. If he is to get society and community to replace family, he needs to use women to do it.
Taking blame
  • Women can sometimes exaggerate fault or blame themselves for something that is unwarranted. This can continue for years from an incident of little consequence. A husband can assure his wife such that she can slowly let go of the need to punish herself. Satan can use this characteristic to get women to feel motivated to advance his goals. For example, a woman may feel she needs to be working outside the home to help earn the money for a nice house.



What is the solution?


Walk in truth
  • Jesus is truth and the Bible is truth. Immersion in both helps bring us out of the society of deception Satan has constructed. When we walk in truth, we can see the world Satan has created as it truly is. For example the reason every TV program portrays men as idiots and women as heroes is because Satan needs to keep women thinking his world is their answer as opposed to a godly husband.
  • Once we begin to see how we have come to be deceived, we need to think about what changes we need to make to bring us out of the darkness into which we have been led. Truth does set us free.
Social surgery
  • Often we come to realize how ungodly some of our social relationships are. We need to cut our social ties to those who would draw us away from our natural place into the artificial world Satan has created. 
Godly fellowship
  • We need to seek out and cultivate Godly relationships that edify (build up) and help us grow more in the image of Christ. 
Godly instruction
  • There is a Biblical role for older women to instruct younger women.
Godly home
  • If women and men turn their hearts towards home, we can hope to rebuild that which is precious in the eyes of the Lord, a loving Christian home and family.
Godly husband
  • God made men such that their assurance, comfort, perspective, and guidance works to fill what women need. A man that is walking in truth, drawing wisdom from the Lord, and growing daily in Christ-likeness is able to provide all that a woman would need or want.


  • Satan understands that his world of deception produces problems for women such as anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and insecurity. His answer is even more deception such as "feeling good about yourself". It is self that brings us further from the Lord and deeper in blindness. Women do not need "self-esteem", they, like men, need Jesus, to walk in truth, and be set free from the deceptions of this world.
