You can believe what you like. I know many people have an issue with the OT, I don't. Instead of condemning God I actually listened to the bible.
All of the people that the Israelites were driving out by God's authority were doing things detestable to God.
16 There are six things the LORD hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
So you know that they must have been committing at least one of the above sins to be considered detestable.
Generational curses are handed down to their offspring by the traditions they teach their kids. If you teach a child that we owe everything to Molech
and we must sacrifice our first born children in the fire to him to be prosperous, this is precisely what the child will grow up to believe. This
would be the reason for completely destroying everything from that society. They had become poised by their corruption and their penalty is death by
a sword. Just as God saved lot, if there had been even one righteous person he would not have done it, just as he promised.
The Israelites themselves did many detestable things recorded in the bible as well. And when they did the spirit of God was against them. When they
sinned they were given over to slavery by God, when they repented they could come back into God's love. The same is true today. When we sin we are
a slave to that addiction, only when we turn to God in love will God be with us so that we can overcome the addiction.
The law of the OT was given to man because man's refusal to walk in the light. The OT is about men who wanted an earthly king and Kingdome. The
punishment for sin has always been death. The path to overcome sin was not fully revealed until Christ. And then the path was practically destroyed
by the RCC during the inquisition.
Women rights? The bible actually teaches women to ask for women's rights. What women have achieved is the right to be equal to a male. The problem
is they never actually fought for women's rights. If we turn to the bible the bible says wives have the right to be served by men. A girl's
virginity was sacred, she was served her whole life.
Yes women's role is to be placed on a thrown and completely to be served by the men in her life. Her husband should be humble enough to build her a
thrown and wash her feat with his hands while she sits back on her thrown. The bible instructs men to love their wives as themselves and to serve
them as Christ served the church. And yes women, if your husband builds you a thrown and washes your feet, then I imagine that you could trust him
enough to be in charge of your love.
So maybe it's time we stop talking about how horrible women in the bible had it. Maybe it is time for women to fight for their virginity? Maybe it
is time for them to fight to be sought after like God's most beautiful creation? Maybe it is time for them to demand that men serve them.?
The bible says God made man in his own image both male and female. He tells us he pulled women out of man. Therefore he said he created the first
man Adam as both male and female like himself/herself. God is both male and female. Eve you are not just equal to Adam you are quite literally his
This is why you become united in marriage. This is why you need to start asking for the "women's rights" and stop looking for "men's rights".
Our rights our inherently different by nature. A man is more suited for labor of work and cannot produce children. Women are more suited for the
labor of childbirth. Men are better at handing down the harder discipline, while women are better at handing out compassionate discipline.
Over 50% of American women are depressed. It is time that we all fight for women's rights. Let's teach our little girls to value themselves and to
protect their virginity. Are our teenagers learning anything positive by having multiple sex partners before they turn 18 much less before they
Maybe it is time for Eve to stop following Adam. Adam has asked Eve to do detestable things to satisfy his evil desires. Adam has forced Eve into
giving away her sexuality prematurely, pornography, strip clubs, and prostitution. All of these things happen and you think women are better off
The bible places Eve on a pedestal equal to that of the church. Adam isn't it time we do the same, just like the bible tells us to?
