A few days ago my long-divorcing wife and I had a thought provoking verbal exchange. Upon our first meet-up that day I reminded her that she was headed to hell, and that she needed to repent, as any good spiritual leader would. Later that evening when we met-up again, she went off on one of her tirades. Among her first loud charges was the accusation that I think women are inferior. LOL She hollered it like she was charging me with arrogant blasphemy. She continued to verbally lambaste me and got way louder as she ran off, so that I really didn’t get a chance to respond. She likes to get the last word that way – she screams some charge against my character and then slams the door, usually. She is a master of shutting down discussion, and always has to get the last word. Anyhow…
Once upon a blue-pilled time, I might have interjected, “that’s not true”, or tried to show that my words and actions were necessary and reasonable, and not male chauvinistic. But as she was ranting on, and I was thinking about how I might respond if I ever was able to get a word in, I realized; she’s right. I do now think women are inferior to men. And not just because of her accompanying show of spoiled behavior. LOL I think God made the woman as a lesser vessel, not in the image of God, with the mission to help and reverence her man, when she is behaving well, and to test men’s faithfulness to God when she misbehaves.
It really was a blissful enlightenment, to acknowledge to myself, that I do firmly know that women are currently categorically inferior by way of creation and divinely assigned rank to all of us menfolk, and that I needed to just come out and own it more thankfully publicly, that I, as a man, was made for preeminence, as an image, or representative figure, of God, and bestowed with some portion of His divine glory.
I no longer need to be on the defensive, and prove I believe in equality. I can respond to the charge of thinking women are inferior, by going on the offensive and declaring, I know I am superior, a great gift was bestowed on me by God, who fearfully and wonderfully made me a glorious likeness of Himself, to rule over women in His divine stead. And you, woman, by your insolence and your ignorance of your own rank and place, you prove that your inherent inferiority is well merited by how unworthily you even still conduct yourself, by putting on airs in the presence of your superiors, when you should rightly be showing humility and genuflection.
If it had been the husbands asked to be subject to their wives by God , the husbands wouldn’t fail so incompetently to be of excellent service.
No, the husband is the rightful head, because he is the most noble aspect of humankind, and best fit to command women and children with his discernment. All children should honor their parents. Every husband should be honored as the God ordained and inherently superior shepherd of his own household, that the gospel of Jesus Christ may be exalted. So also should every man honor Jesus Christ as his Lord, thereby directing all human honor and allegiance rightfully upward, ascending ultimately to the glory of the Supreme Father. Amen!
