This rant is because of a post by a male chauvinist regarding the female gender.
In this link, he quotes the carefully selected opinions of a number of men who support his position, and then uses this as ‘proof’ of his views.
Anyone reading his post, who does not have their thinking cap on, may then take his views on board. I could reply to his post at the link above, but
an address against this form of hypocrisy deserves a far wider audience, and also because male chauvinists need to be aware of what they are truly up
The main thrust of the original post is from a religious angle, so I will start there.
In Hebrew, ‘Elohim’ is ‘masculine plural’, while the name of God ‘YHWH’ is ‘feminine singular’. As God is unique and there is only
One, there is actually no question of ‘gender’, so you can make of this what you will. But I find it interesting that the female form is used for
the personal name of God.
The attitude of the Son towards women in his lifetime has also been curious, because he addressed them with respect and on a personal one-to-one
basis. It is the sort of behaviour that would be strange and relatively unknown amongst men who are dismissive of females as being inferior to men.
Paul when he says he does not permit women to speak in church, say ‘I do not…’, so he is stating his own personal opinion; not God’s, or the
Holy Spirit’s, or the Scriptures. Although he does go on to state, ‘as the law says’ but I have never seen anything in the Biblical ‘law’ to
support this statement!
There is a lot of discussion within the original postings about the actions and guilt between Adam and Eve over the apple. However, if we consider the
role of ‘men only’ being permitted to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, we will come to see how women have been protected from this folly of
evangelising and promoting the personage who will soon become recognised as the Antichrist.
That is from a religious angle, but let’s look at some scientific facts.
The male mitochondria energises the tail of the sperm to reach the egg and then comes to a dead end, while it is the female’s mitochondria that
gives the spark of ‘life’ to the foetus and this is passed on from daughter to daughter endlessly, whereas the son’s mitochondria to impregnate
his wife, becomes another dead end. So it is the mother who not only carries the foetus to term, but also gives it life!
Bryan Sykes, professor of Human Genetics at the University of Oxford, says in his book, ‘Blood of the Isles’ that genetically speaking all
foetuses are female for the first weeks of life, and then divert if they are to become male. So on page 130 of his book, he puts it bluntly, ‘Men
truly are genetically modified females’
! Not only that but elsewhere he states that the male DNA is the genetic equivalent of a train wreck.
Getting back to the religious side of this. God’s whole purpose is to create a kingdom/nation of holy priests, as stated to the Israelites when
Moses went up the mountain in Exodus 19:5 & 6, and this was said without regard to tribe, gender or age.
When the 24 Elders in the Book of Revelation throw down their crowns before the Lamb of God who is about to open the Seven Seals, they say ‘he is
worthy’ because BY HIS BLOOD, he has made them a ‘kingdom of priests and a holy nation’ to God. These two very small sections of the Bible
display the whole of God’s purpose in creating mankind, and also the whole reason for the crucifixional sacrifice of His Son!
So there is no limitation of gender or age, etc. on those who elect, by refusing to worship the Antichrist, to become saints, who will go through the
Tribulation to become the priests of God and of the Lamb. These are those who will NOT undergo judgment or the second death!
After the thousand years, the rest of the dead will be resurrected to face judgment according to their works; so you have to pity any man who is
judged partly on his attitude towards, and subsequent mistreatment of, women.
So chauvinists, be aware!
