Is God after your money?

Rich Young Ruler

“Christ and the Rich Young Ruler” by Heinrich Hofmann

Note: If you are in a really big hurry, just read the “lesson” section. 

When I was a young blue-pilled churchian I remember hearing the following lyrics from the song ‘Bullet The Blue Sky’ sung by U2’s Bono, regarding televangelists:

And I can’t tell the difference between ABC News,
Hill Street Blues, and a preacher on the Old Time Gospel Hour
Stealing money from the sick and the old.
Well, the God I believe in isn’t short of cash, mister!

I remember at that time thinking Bono was right that God wasn’t short of cash, but resenting that he had said so.  For I feared that if word got out people would stop being guilted into supporting all the money-hungry churchian institutions, which at that point I naïvely believed were somehow a feature of us collectively living out Christianity, as though Christians collectively financed the working of God.  Reminiscent of the old Catholic jingle:

“As soon as the coin in the coffer rings, another soul from purgatory springs!”

The story of Jesus and the rich young ruler is found in Matthew 19:16-26, Mark 10:17-27, and Luke 18:18-27.   In it the young and successful man asks Jesus, “what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” and Jesus basically tells him to be perfect he must obey all the laws, which the young man claimed he always had, and then Jesus added, “If thou wilt be perfect, sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.”  Basically Jesus asked the man to give up absolutely everything of himself including his very influential job and to become a homeless follower of Him.  Jesus didn’t say that to everyone, but it is recorded for us in three Gospels as an example that nobody meets God’s righteous standards, not even a devout young leader of the traditionally theocratic Jewish nation who recognized that Jesus taught the truth.  

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

This was just like in Matthew chapter 5 when Jesus earlier told people that they would need to pluck out their eyes and cut off their hands to prevent themselves from sinning lest “that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”  None of Jesus disciples took that as a literal command and maimed themselves.  Jesus was just pointing out, in that case, that lust and hate were already in everyone’s hearts, and trying to make them realize that, even if outwardly they seemed blameless in relation to the law, inwardly they were still going to need a sacrificial savior.  Because our nature is to sin, and we cannot be made holy through our own willpower.

I believe Jesus was illustrating that we all can’t even keep the first commandment.  

The first commandment is: Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Eve the defiler put her own self-advancement before obedience to God, just like Satan had also previously done.  Satan deceived Eve into thinking her disobedience would allow her to be like God, just like Satan had once tried to usurp and be like the Most High God.  Adam then obeyed Eve’s request above God’s command.  We all have things we put before total devotion to God every day, and those things that take God’s place in our life are “other gods”.  I mean you still have stuff, right?  You didn’t give all your stuff to the poor and aren’t reading this on a computer at the public library before you go out to witness for God and beg for bread crusts, am I right?  Because if you’ve still got stuff, then Jesus said you’re not yet perfect. (to the rich young ruler)

No doubt the rich young ruler already tithed 10%.  Tithing paid for the Levites and temple guards that provided a justice system and enforced law and order in the Old Testament theocracy that God had prescribed.  Tithing was the Jewish taxation system that funded their national governance before they demanded to have kings.  Then the kings also made demands of them separate from their 10% tithe. However, notice that Jesus told the man to go and distribute his wealth to the poor, He did not ask the rich man to give it to Him, or to the temple or synagogue.  

That is contrary to many of today’s churchians who twist a single verse about Jewish tithing from the Old Testament and morph it into a self-serving doctrine called “storehouse giving”, whereby their dupes are required to give all of their charitable giving through, “the storehouse”, referring, of course, to that pastor’s church.   And as they say, “funds are fungible”. 

All of that has just laid a backdrop for the Biblical insight regarding money that I now want to explain to you:

~ Beginning of lesson ~

Matthew 22:15(NET)  Then the Pharisees went out and planned together to entrap Him with His own words.  16 They sent to Him their disciples along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that You are truthful, and teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.  You do not court anyone’s favor because You show no partiality.  17 Tell us then, what do You think? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”  18 But Jesus realized their evil intentions and said, “Hypocrites! Why are you testing Me?  19 Show Me the coin used for the tax.”  So they brought Him a denarius.  20 Jesus said to them, “Whose image is this, and whose inscription?”  21 They replied, “Caesar’s.” He said to them, “Then give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”  22 Now when they heard this they were stunned, and they left Him and went away.

I think Jesus’ testing by two groups of Jewish men, the Pharisees and Herodians,(who believed Herod was the messiah) over paying Rome a tribute coin had more significance than we today usually realize.  I believe Jesus was reminding those “Romanized” Jewish men that their overriding primary duty was in fact to their Creator, not Caesar.  The tribute coin bore Caesar’s image and was circumscribed to him. The circumscription at the time of Jesus stated “Tiberius, son of the Divine Augustus”.  As shown below:

Emperor Tiberius Denarius - Tribute Penny

So the coin was stated to bear the image of the son of a god.  Jesus taught that it was OK to give Caesar the tribute coin (worth one day’s wages) that was made in Caesar’s image and was circumscribed to him. And I believe the reason that they marveled at his answer was because those Jewish men who studied and debated the Torah remembered how they were proud to claim to be both formed in God’s own image and to be circumcised or circumscribed as a signet in their flesh that their very beings were forever wholly devoted to God.

Genesis 17:10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. … 13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

We who are redeemed have all been bought with a price, bought into Christ at the cost of his flesh and blood.  However, since God made women for men and gave them to men, who are God’s image and glory while woman are only the glory of the man,(1 Corinthians 11:7) God doesn’t want women circumcised as His possession.  Men were intentionally created for God’s good pleasure and are His direct possession, whereas women were specifically designed and given to be the cherished possessions of men.  You can’t circumcise a woman into the covenant between God and Jewish men, and any vain attempt to do so is just female genital mutilation.  Women were made by God for men, and given to men, to be men’s cherished possession. 

Jesus reminded those Jewish men that their lives and bodies were doubly God’s possession, both created in His image, as all men are, and in particular they as Jews were circumcised signifying that they were God’s chosen possession and an eternal posterity of God’s.  The Pharisees and Herodians had come to lay a trap concerning whether or not Jesus, an unschooled religious teacher, would honor Rome’s demand of tribute over God’s chosen people.  But instead they got stunned as Jesus countered by showing how their very lives into eternity were already claimed and owed as an infinitely greater tribute to God Most High, in the exact same way that the little coins which Caesar had made in his own image and inscribed to himself, were meant to be paid back to him.  The returning of Caesar’s coins not only did not violate God’s duly established claim over the Jews, but as Jesus revealed Caesar’s coins were in fact a token replication of God’s exact ownership signets on all Jewish men who bore both God’s image, and God’s inscription.(circumcision)  

If Jesus had only meant for them to similarly pay off both God and Caesar each with a portion of money, like most hirelings claim, the Jews would certainly not have been left marveling at that compromise that would have blasphemously portrayed Caesar and God the Father as relative equals.

It disgusts me that greedy pastors falsely teach that Jesus was trying to show us, in that passage, just to hand over some of our money to pay off their church.  It is clear that the Pharisees and Herodians would not have been left marveling if Jesus had just been understood by them to be telling them to pay Roman taxes while also shilling for the temple fund-raiser.  The Pharisees were likely wanting to condemn Jesus for blasphemy against God (a capital crime) if he said to pay tribute to the Roman god-Emperor, since they could privately, in their gentile-free temple courtroom, claim that Jewish tithes were due to Jehovah alone.  While the Herodians would have also been there to turn Jesus over to Rome for sedition (a capital crime) if He had said not to pay Rome the tribute.  Jesus corrected them that as self-professed sons of God their Father owned them outright.  And without saying anything seditious Jesus made it clear that there was no comparison between them owing the true God everything, while returning the self-proclaimed “god” in Rome his mere pittance.   There is a great and glorious truth in there to be marveled at, for those with ears to hear, who aren’t too focused on money to see the image of God, and the covenant of circumcision, and men’s required duty, divinely illustrated by Jesus through the coin.

~ End of lesson ~

Bonus rant:

But what about the churchian’s money?

Early church father, Tertullian, said: “Nothing that is God’s is obtainable by money.”

Most hirelings will spend a lot of time and money attending seminary to learn how to preach the same lies and excuses in conformity with all the other preachers that lead our nation further into depravity.  Like Simon the sorcerer they sought to buy the calling and gifts of God.  And they bought a diploma, though they are still too cowardly to even face down this world’s Feminist influence and subject a woman to church discipline as Jesus tells churches to perform.  Instead their purchased “training” seemingly only teaches them to make excuses and blame-shift on behalf of women.

It is evident that they get fully trained to tell all the same old foolish hireling lies about how you can slowly boil frogs without them trying to jump out when the water gets too hot.  Am I the only one who went home and tried it?  Frogs are amphibious, when cold-blooded frogs warm up they get far more active, and the moment they feel it getting too warm, they jump out.  It turns out that even with their tiny frog brains, God made them wiser than hirelings who blindly plagiarize other pastors sermon illustrations, because God’s Spirit doesn’t reveal to them truth to teach, so they wind up trying to be religious entertainers.  Their “messages” sometimes remind me of political talk shows where the host has 2 minutes of new material and a two hour show to fill.

“God doesn’t want to take your money. He just doesn’t want your money to take you.” ~ Andy Stanley

I recall the New Testament telling of churches taking up a collections for other churches.   That sure doesn’t sound like today’s churches. 

While the churches have gone moneygrubbing and many are in permanent fund raising mode, I do think it is good for us to give when we can, but certainly not to them, since they are apostate.  That would be ungodly stewardship to hand off an offering meant to please God to false teachers, who are the firstborn of Satan.  God spoke of sharing with the needy, and of giving those gifts to them in the name of Jesus.  Jesus also praised a widow who, in faith, gave all that she had to the Jewish temple.  I would recommend that you only give as you are led by faith to give, and when you can do so in a way that seems right.  Because God loves cheerful givers, not perturbed givers who finally give in to some greedy pastor’s browbeating or tear jerking spiel.  If you don’t give your alms in the right way you’ll lose your reward anyway.  So I personally wouldn’t bother giving anything until you are prepared to give it wisely and to do it properly.

Matthew 6:1  Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.  2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:  4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

The less fortunate will often need money, but God is never in need and accepts no bribes.  God looks upon our hearts.  Is there generosity and love in your heart?  Not if you can’t share your blessings when you are blessed, even though you’d still prefer to have more.  There’s no fooling God.  If you aren’t happy sharing your blessings, you’ll need to begin trying and practicing until you can be.  

Epistle of “Mathetes” to Diognetus from Chapter 10 … How will you love Him who has first so loved you? And if you love Him, you will be an imitator of His kindness. And do not wonder that a man may become an imitator of God. He can, if he is willing. For it is not by ruling over his neighbors, or by seeking to hold the supremacy over those that are weaker, or by being rich, and showing violence towards those that are inferior, that happiness is found; nor can any one by these things become an imitator of God. But these things do not at all constitute His majesty. On the contrary he who takes upon himself the burden of his neighbor; he who, in whatsoever respect he may be superior, is ready to benefit another who is deficient; he who, whatsoever things he has received from God, by distributing these to the needy, becomes a god to those who receive [his benefits]: he is an imitator of God.

The chief human enemies of Christ?

Jesus cleansing the templeIn Giotto’s c.1305AD Gothic/Proto-Renaissance fresco, shown above, Jesus Christ is illustrated clearing the merchants out of the temple while His haloed disciples watch and the religious leaders murmur against Him.

The merchants in the temple had turned the house of God into a den of thieves, but they could only have done this with the consent of their religious leaders.  The Romans crucified Jesus, but He was turned over to the Romans, to be crucified, by the High Priest of his own people.  Pontius Pilate asked Jesus (in John 19:10-11) “You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?”  Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”

So who did Jesus Christ argue with and rail against the most, the whores, the tax collectors, thieves, murderers, who?  We all know it was the Jewish religious leaders of that day that Jesus gave most of His condemnation.   Jesus was God’s “King of the Jews”, but His own religion’s leaders received him not.  They didn’t like His words, they didn’t like His ways.

Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews  The replica sign shown above reads, “Jesus [of] Nazareth King [of the] Jews”.

Jesus Christ’s chief human enemies were the apostate religious leaders of His own religion.  But weren’t they Jewish in religion and following God’s laws?  Mostly, maybe 80-90%, but they believed enough false doctrine and traditions of men to mistake their own miracle working Messiah for a blasphemer.  Was it an honest mistake?  No, they had motive.  They didn’t want Jesus busting up their sacrifice selling cartel, questioning their traditions, proving He had God’s power to heal on the Sabbath, and teaching the people contrary to their doctrines, based upon the holy Scriptures.  Jesus was correcting their wicked ways and they wanted Him dead, all the while they claimed to be looking forward to the Messiah coming to rule over them.  But, He had come and the religious leaders didn’t want Him as ruler over them.

So how is this relevant to us today?

Well, as they say, “History repeats”.  Ecclesiastes 3:15(NLT) What is happening now has happened before, and what will happen in the future has happened before, because God makes the same things happen over and over again.

So will Christ allow the leaders of His “new” religion to again leave the truth of His word, and begin teaching doctrines they evolved to excuse their own waywardness?  Is the same King of the Jews who let the Jews become idolatrous and apostate and reject His ways, now as King of the Christians going to allow the church to become idolatrous and apostate and reject His ways?  Surely, you can’t be serious?Woke PastorDeuteronomy 32:18 You ignored the Rock who fathered you and forgot the God who gave you life.  Some translations do say “gave you birth”, but none use the pronoun “she”.  This retarded woman-worshiper has forgotten our eternal Father and is demoting God’s sex to suit his idolatrous Feminist beliefs.

Jeremiah 44:15-17a Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying,  16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee.  17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem.

So, could “Christian” churches again ignore Father God’s word and turn to giving idolatrous worth-ship to things feminine?  The following verse is soon about to happen:

Daniel 12:1(ICB) Daniel, at that time Michael, the great prince, will stand up. (He is the one who protects your people.) There will be a time of much trouble. It will be the worst time since nations have been on earth. But your people will be saved. Everyone whose name is written in God’s book will be saved.

The word “trouble” is listed in Strong’s Hebrew dictionary as word 6869 צָרָה Pronounced: (tsaw-raw’) a feminine noun that literally means: vexer, rival-wife, a female rival or adversary, and yet it also means trouble in a figurative sense. That Hebrew word has a more frequently used masculine version, but God said the less used feminine noun, perhaps to indicate the feminine vexing rivalry that is to be in that time of tribulation. Some feel that this was God’s way of warning us approximately 2,560 years ago, of the coming tribulation that is marked by the satanic evil of Feminism. Where God’s righteous patriarchal order has been completely thrown off and a defiling female-supremacist rival order, or Feminism, afflicts the sons of God’s people. I surely know Feminism has enabled the destruction of my family and now has my sons living without a father. However it is comforting to know that God not only foresaw this Feminist trouble, but that he warned us it would come upon us, before His deliverance of His people. God knows our “trouble”.  Commenter Feeriker once wrote:

Whenever I learn a new Hebrew word, the first thing I instinctively do is look to see if it is a cognate to Arabic.

This one definitely is. The Arabic word is. ثورة (“Thow’-rah” in classical standard Arabic, or sometimes pronounced “Sow’-rah”, or “Tow”-rah” in regional dialects such as Egyptian or Levantine).

The Arabs use it to mean “revolution” or “uprising,” a more powerful form of “trouble” or “disturbance,” which is DEFINITELY relevant to this topic.

Feeriker makes a good point. This female “uprising” or sexual “revolution” was long foretold as afflicting the sons of God’s people at the end of the age.  We can rest assured that God has this world under His watchful eye, and foreknew our Feminist trouble from the beginning.  And we who fight it, are fighting on God’s side, against the adversary of God.  So be of good courage!

1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

So who are God’s worst human enemies today?

God’s chief enemies are again now our “Christian” spiritual leaders.  Like the Spiritual leaders at Christ’s first coming they have turned their worship centers into profit centers.  While they preach 80-90% of God’s word, they still join the Serpent in leading women into rebellion (“Ye shall be like God”) falsely claiming that women also image God the Father & Son, and were therefore created equal to men, thereby making marriage into a form of slavery where a man forces his equal into an unequal relationship as his helper.  They preach the exact same doctrine as anti-Christian Feminists, telling women to seek equality with, and to usurp, the image of God and telling men to hearken to the voice of the woman.  They’re replaying the role of the Serpent from Genesis 3.  They do the works of their father the devil.

Basically all of satanic Feminism was empowered by state sponsored church leaders in Rome declaring females to be in the image of God beginning around the end of the fourth century AD to allow Mary to be made co-equal with Christ and into a replacement goddess to offer to forcibly converted goddess worshippers.  Over a millennium later the Protestant reformation finally rolled back the deity of Mary, “the queen of heaven”, but today we still need reformers to roll back the image of God from off of women, so that wives can again rightfully and joyfully follow their clear superior, knowing that their husband is the image of the Lord Christ, the Good Shepherd, while wives don’t image God, but instead they image the ever straying church.

To restore God’s holy patriarchy we need to restore the fitting natural disparity between the sexes by reverencing exclusively fathers and sons as the image and glory of God the Father & Son.  By teaching men and women their correct respective standing and rank before God, men’s royal priesthood over their families can be restored, and marriage may again become a holy union operating according to God’s design.

Obviously laws and precedents would have to be reset, and governance returned to men, but the process of correct restoration of holy patriarchal governance begins with first understanding who God is, who we are, and how we all relate to God via His hierarchy. (1 Corinthians 11:3)

To make ready the way for Christ we must contradict the Feminist religious leaders of our day, who are Christ’s chief human enemies, and share the beautiful truth about our masculine God’s holy patriarchal kingdom where the Father, who is LORD of all spirits and all flesh, transfers all dominion to the Son.  So we as the images of God should seek to imitate God and transfer all of our society’s dominion into the hands of our sons, not leaving behind a society that is satanic, Feminist, and dysfunctional.  Amen!

Cunts Cancel Christian Clergyman

Brace yourselves men.  Atheists are now in control of what our nation’s pastors preach.  Why?  Because we let women rule over us.  The following link leads to a story about a pastor who got “Canceled” for advising women to endeavor to stay visually attractive for their husbands to bolster their marriages.  This pastor’s sermon was first pointed out and shrieked at by “Friendly Atheist” over at Patheos.  Later it was blasted by butch haired Reagan Williams who tells us that not only is Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark “toxic” to women, “he’s apparently extremely homophobic and transphobic too.” 

After these unsaved women began to publicly cunt-out over Pastor Clark’s practical sex-appeal sermon for women, then some of the woke media was also fed the story and blared it too.  As a result First General Baptist Church of Malden, Missouri now claims: “As of March 2, 2021, Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark has taken a leave of absence and is seeking professional counseling.”

Funny seal gasps

Sent to the reeducation camp!  So what horribly “toxic” things did this pastor say to incite his woke lynching?  Well, I listened to his sermon, and I personally was not offended by any of it.  Although he did spout the tiring & ungodly feminist fantasy of “perpetual courtship”, saying; “The chase ain’t ever over.”  But, I presume it wasn’t so much what he said, as how he said it.  Lots of quips holding women accountable for maintaining their beauty with very little gynogroveling or the profuse apologies that might ordinarily accompany even one such suggestion that women try improving themselves.  Furthermore pastor Clark has grown fat and his delivery was a little awkward.  So, much like how some people can’t “pull off” certain fashions, Pastor Clark was deemed by the woke trolls to be too fat and dorky to be telling wives to keep themselves beautiful for husbands like himself.  He was deemed unworthy to speak in such a way to wives.   They esteem themselves to have the worth-ship to be above any man’s correction, and certainly above an obese man’s correction.

Now if Pastor Clark had been a hawt panty-dropper with a way-cool delivery, he may have made many of these frigid harpies moist in the panties with his androcentric banter, and still be leading his church.  But, via many comments I read, I believe his biggest perceived “crime” was being fat himself, while instructing women not to be.

Pastor Clark also used Melania Trump as an example of a trophy wife who keeps herself attractive for her husband. 

Liberal heads exploding in …3…2…1… BOOM!

Sexy Melania Trump

Which would be your first lady?  

First Booty

Pastor Clark also said: “This is just the way God made us. Men have to have sexual intimacy or they’re not happy. It’s just the way it is.”  Presumably there are a few men with the “gift of celibacy”, but otherwise I’d have to agree.  Clearly my evil wife wasted our entire marriage intentionally trying to keep me unhappy.   

So where does this Feminist equality nonsense always derive itself from?

First General Baptist is a church in the General Baptist denomination, which released a statement Monday saying Clark’s sermon was “not consistent with the positions and values” of the organization.  “General Baptists believe that every woman was created in the image of God, and they should be valued for that reason,”…

The Image of God, men’s divine birthright, is falsely claimed by women and fraudulently touted to make them equal to fathers and sons who truly image God the Father and the Son.  And then, next thing you know, women are not only deemed equal to men, but women are treated like they are “more equal” than men.  And so men are not permitted to correct women.  But God never ever said women were made in His matchless image, like He so many times said men are.  And God, who chose to make two sexes, always clearly identifies Himself as the male sex.  And furthermore the Bible explains that women are a “weaker vessel”.  Not a strong vessel intended to carry the matchless image of God.  Instead of imaging God, women professing godliness are to be shamefaced and always in subjection.

1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Feminism’s Flimsy Theological Foundation

Recently I read an article at Answers in Genesis regarding; “Does God Have a Gender?“.  The author makes the point that: “God could have created a world in which there were no gender distinctions … Thus, in creating gender and then representing himself consistently and repeatedly as male, God is making a deliberate assertion about his nature.  There is something particular about maleness that he chooses to represent his nature in a way that femaleness does not.”

Another author at the same site discusses: “Is God Male or Female?”.   That author begins by pandering to this world’s Feminists by issuing the following disclaimer: “Before we go on, it is important to note that this question is not about the equality of men and women.  Both are made in God’s image and are therefore equal (Genesis 1:27).  Rather, it is about who gets to decide how we speak about God and how we address him in prayer: people or God?”

(Previously I have delved into what Genesis 1:27 actually says regarding who is the image of God, here, and also here, as well as in other posts.)

He is partly right, in that, if men and women were both the matchless image of God most high, then they would truly be equal.  Because no image could be greater than being the image of God.

As an example: If I and my old college roommate, who both got the same degree from the same university, were to debate about who had achieved the higher ranking degree, and I started going on about how I had attended a better elementary school, everybody would realize that what elementary school I had gone to was a moot point, because our ultimate degree ranking is based upon our highest degree, it is not determined by something of lesser degree.

And so it is true, that if both male and female were designed to image the eternal Father and Son, then by definition men and women must be equal, by nature of sharing that same highest aspect of their created identity and personage.  That assumed equality, in God’s image, is the bedrock foundation upon which all Feminism was built.

But of course, like the Bible and the earliest church father’s writings all unanimously attest, women don’t image our Father & Son Godhead, like men do:

1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Ambrosiaster wrote:  Paul says that the honor and dignity of a man makes it wrong for him to cover his head, because the image of God should not be hidden. Indeed, it ought not to be hidden, for the glory of God is seen in the man. … A woman therefore ought to cover her head, because she is not the likeness of God but is under subjection.”

So the point of application is that Feminism then is exposed as a fundamentally false teaching based upon a falsely presumed equality.  While the one sex that truly images God, men, are shown to be superior, and thus rightful heads.  It is in the best interest of every man, woman, and child that men be given the patriarchal authority that God ordained for them to have over their wives and children.

Although women are a weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7) not designed to carry the matchless image of God the Father and His Son, it is not an individual woman or man’s relative strengths and weaknesses that determines men’s superiority, but it is the image of God that was categorically bestowed on men, that makes all men superior in earthly rank to women within God’s holy patriarchal kingdom.  A woman can’t become the stronger vessel by steroids or education, those things won’t make her outrank a man who was made in the image of God.  Even if she is physically stronger, and mentally stronger, she is still a woman who, if she professes godliness, should adorn herself with shamefacedness (1 timothy 2:9-10) while reverencing her husband. (Ephesians 5:33)

Feminism teaches that traditional patriarchal marriage as set up by God is a form of slavery where one equal subjects another equal into an unequal relationship where he rules over her.  If you accept men and women to be equals, then marriage automatically becomes unjust and also unworkable, since you can’t have a democracy of two people.  However, if God created man first in His own image, and to be His own glory, and later created Eve for Adam to be his helper and to be Adam’s glory, then it is only fitting that she should submit to her superior, as the Bible explains:  Colossians 3:18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

Marriage is not slavery, just as parenting is not enslaving children.  Because children are admittedly inferior and need parental guidance, it is only fitting that they be taught to submit to their parents’ control.

If men were truly created first, preeminent, and superior to women, and women, who being the last creature created, were the first creature to transgress against God; then patriarchy isn’t enslavement, but instead is the loving gift of our all-wise God.  Through patriarchy, God wants to keep society as righteous as can be expected by governing sinful and silly women with sinful yet more dutiful and dutybound men, who were created to serve God directly, while their wives were vessels created to serve God through serving God’s image, their fathers and then husbands.

Once you understand that females are neither the image nor likeness of the Father or Son, then women no longer have a basis to claim equality with men who are to be reverenced in marriage as the images of Jesus Christ,(God) while the wife images the church.(not God)

Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

So, I exhort you men, use the Word of God to pull down the stronghold of Feminism, by first destroying its foundation, women’s claim to image our masculine God.  If we don’t pull out Feminism’s root the noxious weed of sexual equality will grow right back in churches whereby satanic Feminism was first cultivated into our culture, ultimately destroying our culture.

Some time around 400AD women began to be claimed to also be the likeness of God, so that Mary could become a deity and be worshipped as a substitute for goddess worshippers whom Emperor Constantine had forcibly converted to his new state religion of “Christianity” in Rome.  The protestant reformation a millennium later rolled back the deity of Mary.  But, now we need to roll back the image of the Father and Son from off of women to rest just on us fathers and sons.  Feminism has now grown so wretched that women murder men’s children while still in their own wombs, destroy marriages for no fault, and get to kidnap father’s children by default.  Our society can’t survive much more of this satanic arrogance against God.

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds,  5 casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,  6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Do redeemed women receive glorified male bodies in the afterlife?

The floor of one of the coffins of Gua, a physician of the governor Djehutyhotep. The paintings, dated to 1795 B.C., show the “two ways”—land and sea—that the dead could use to navigate the afterlife. An even older “Book of Two Ways” has now been unearthed. (Werner Forman/Universal Images Group via Getty Images)

Smithsonian magazine had an article mentioning ancient Egyptian beliefs about the afterlife:

“The inscriptions clearly quote the Book of Two Ways … such “coffin texts” were meant to “situate the deceased in the world of the gods,” … This particular sarcophagus was occupied by a high-status woman named Ankh, though the afterworld instructions in her final resting place actually refer to her as “he.”

“The funny thing is the whole idea of how you survive in the netherworld is expressed in male terms,” …

In ancient Egypt, rebirth was linked most closely to male gods; dead women, then, had to adopt the pronoun “he” to be more like Osiris himself …”

I had previously commented:

The Book of Enoch states that there are no females among the angels, because they were created to live forevermore, and therefore they had no need to reproduce themselves, like some had done with the daughters of men.
Enoch 15:5 It was for this reason that I gave [men] females, in order that they might cast seed into them, and, in this way, beget children by them, in order that descendants should never fail them upon the earth. 6 But you were existing as spirits, while living perpetual, and are immortal for all the generations of the age; 7 and this is why, I did not make females among you. …
I believe I was reading in the book of Jubilees when it was stated that all the redeemed in heaven will be given new incorruptible bodies that are male(sons of God) like the angels. But I can’t find the passage right at this moment. I believe Jesus may have been referring to those scriptures in the following passage:
Matthew 22:28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
So I currently wonder if women who are redeemed will quite literally become conformed, sharing in the image and glory of the Son. Will they become brethren, glorified, finally freed from their previously unresolved penis envy, and Eve’s curse?
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Ray commented: “As for your speculations on women being made into males after the resurrection, I’ll comment later.”  At this point I’m wondering about this concept that seems to have been an extra-Biblical belief, and may be hinted at or even indicated in the Bible itself, according to your interpretation:

Please share your speculations, opinions, revelations, scriptures, or any other thoughts.

Genesis 5:1-5

I decided to make a post from a comment on the previous thread.

Commenter Swanny River queried:  “I was reading Genesis 5 this morning and don’t recall what you said about verse 2.  I like the explanation of Genesis 1:27, but I don’t remember about 5:2 and it does seem to be at odds with it. Was there a particular post you covered it?”

I have never before made a devoted post about Genesis 5, but I have referenced it in a few comments.  As I have mentioned before the original Hebrew does not have punctuation, and Genesis 1:27 is a three line, or three complete sentence, Hebrew poem.

Genesis 1:27
So God created man in His own image.
In the image of God created He him.
Male and female created He them.

God first explains that He created Adam in his image, forward and then backwards, and then God contrasts that by saying that He only created “them” (which is not the word “Adam” in Hebrew) while contrastingly leaving off any mention of that creation being done in the image of God when referencing both male and Female combined. The male and female were not created in a combined event, but in two separate creation events, so their combined creation is a summarizing statement of two separate events, and those two separate creations when combined are never said to have been in the image of God. Reading that verse(Genesis 1:27) is when it first dawned on me, that God, the author, went to great lengths to never say that the woman, Eve, or both male and female, were created in the image or likeness of God, while saying four times, in Genesis 1:26-27, that Adam was created in God’s image or likeness.

Some English speaking folks insist on saying that line three of the poem given in Genesis 1:27 is not part of a separate sentence, but that it has to be referring, the male and female that were only said to be created, back to the statements about the man being created in the image of God. They do that partly because that is how it can seem in their English translations, but also because they would have to give up Feminism if God clearly made men superior, in the image of the Most High God, to be reverenced and obeyed by women who are created for men, to be men’s help.

So it is really telling that when an extremely similar restatement of the poem is again given in Genesis 5:1-2, they separate the verses right where the Feminists insist there is no separation, and right where I said there should be one. “Male and female created he them” is part of a whole new Bible verse, like I have taught that it could be divided and that the thoughts should be divided for better clarity in English.

Genesis 5:1(KJV) This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:
4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.

Now again the Bible backs me up that when only referring to Seth, Adam’s son, Seth is referred to as being “in his(Adam’s) own likeness, and after his image”, making clear that the image and likeness of God transferred from father to son, like it did from Father God to Adam who was a son of God.(Luke 3:38) And yet again when both the sons and daughters of Adam are mentioned, the likeness and image are not mentioned because the combined group of both male and female are not in the father’s image. The daughters take after their mother’s image and likeness.

The King James Bible almost always gets the gender of gendered words correct, and if you check it you will never find the likeness or image of God said to be upon any living earthly woman. While it tells of men and Jesus Christ(a male) being the image and likeness of God in multiple places.

Now any Feminist is going to try to exploit the fact that in Genesis 5:2 all people, male and female are called or named after “Adam” the man, the father of mankind.  Adam, in Hebrew, can mean: man or mankind, the first man, or ruddy(like clay). So also in English, the word “man” can refer to an individual male, all males, or even all humans. But “Adam”/”man” never refers to Eve individually, any individual woman, or womankind. “Adam”/”Man” only refers to women when they are lumped in with all men. That is a patriarchal colloquialism that God started, whereby we are called after our father, just like how my wife and kids all share my family name.

If God had wanted to make clear that Eve was in the image of God, he could have said that Eve, or the woman, was in the image of God but he clearly didn’t. The fact that all are called by the man’s Hebrew name “Adam”, is an honorary naming, that only goes to show that the man was created superior, and was the one by whom the others would want to be known by association. Just like today, wives and kids take on the man’s name, because he is the superior one, and it is an honor to be associated with your husband or father by name. Again I will mention that if both were equally made in the matchless image of God, the man would not be superior, but they would be equal. However only the man was made in God’s image and that is why it is such an honor for all to be called after his name, even to this day.

The believers of the church of Philadelphia(part of the bride of Christ) will be honored by being named after God and Christ: Revelation 3:12b I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
I’m looking forward to that new family name! What an honor it will be.

So, in review: “Adam” meaning “man” was the first man’s name which became the family name of all people, we are now all collectively known as “man” or “mankind” in English, which is the translation of the Hebrew name or word “Adam”. That does not negate all the rest of what God clearly told us, just because God honored us all by calling us “Adam-kind”, however some folks, on the side of evil, will always try to negate the truth by whatever means they can.  For further clarification see 1 Corinthians 11:7.

Bonus information:

Gary Naler has pointed out that when God counts people He usually only counts the men.
For example:
Matthew 14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
Matthew 15:38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
Exodus 12:37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children. 38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.
There are far too many examples to give them all.
While God certainly can and does count others, like in Jonah 4:11, He usually counts groups by the number of men present, and sometimes indicates there was also a multitude beside them. I think even God’s method of counting us has implications, as to God’s patriarchal priorities, that we may not have realized.

Don’t Be Stupid!

Leviticus 19:28  You are not to make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead or make any tattoo marks upon yourself.  I am the Lord.

This post, is purely an opinion post.  I don’t believe that all the Old Testament laws for the Jewish nation necessarily apply to us, however we may find some wisdom in them regarding how not to be offensive to God and others.

I personally can’t ever remember seeing a tattoo or piercing that I ever thought made the “voluntary-victim” look better.  And I certainly never saw one that made the person, who chose to do that to themselves, look smarter.  Tattoos and piercings are often good indicators of bad judgement.  “Tramp-Stamps” are pretty reliable indicators of willingness to engage in sexual immorality and are on many people’s List of Slut Tells.   And these lists aren’t used by solid Christian men to find sluts, but rather to avoid them.  Anyhow, I don’t have any doctrine to teach about this, just lots of personal opinion on the matter, and I’d really like to read the opinions or doctrines of others and perhaps gain some insight from others’ ideas.

1 Corinthians 6:19  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

There are no longer whores, only verbally abusive men. /S

Scantily clad whores in skimpy clothes. Prostitutes going for a slut walk. Only three things don't get cold in the winter, Polar Bears, Penguins, and Whores

Slut-Walks are now being organized by sluts to reclaim the word “Slut”.  Apparently the word “Slut” has a bad connotation. Slut-walk organizers say that the shaming connotation was caused by “The Patriarchy”, which is to say: all previous generations of the church that upheld God’s patriarchal order and laws condemning sexual immorality and effectively instilled their godly values throughout past generations of society.   But, no more!   The word “slut” now will mean; an empowered woman who seduces and copulates with whichever men of her choosing will dare to stick their dick into her.  Only “slut” will now supposedly mean that in a far more positive way, free from the shaming that societies influenced by an effective patriarchal church, previously maintained.

So how did we get to be such an immodest and immoral generation where women openly attend church dressed like the whores that they have become?

The immodesty and immorality of our generation is the legacy of cowardice and inaction on the part of the previous generation of leaders of our nation’s churches.  Cowardly leadership has led to a worthless “church” that today intentionally resembles the world, which has grown much more evil on those hirelings’ watch.  These apostate churches no longer lead our culture towards modesty and morality, but instead they follow the world into immodesty and immorality.  Will the churches of our children’s generation be returned to modesty under our watch?  If not, we’re not fighting hard enough or effectively enough.  You can read the lack of willingness to enforce modesty in today’s typical churchian assemblies in the following language from Whitewater Community Churches website:

Come as you are

Casual, Business Dress, Formal.   At Whitewater Community Church our concern is not on your outward appearance, but on the inward appearance of your heart.

While that sounds so “nice”, what that is really saying is; that they haven’t the balls to rein in attention-seeking immodest sluts.  Modesty won’t be forced to return while impotent churches lazily preach “come as you are”.  Profligate whores have slut-walked their way into these churches and the churchians esteem them as their pure hearted goddesses.   The goofballs that mismanage such churches are probably far more upset by my use of derisive words designed to shame their immodest and immoral congregations.

While floozies want to boldly reclaim the word “slut”, most misguided churchians try to assist by shaming upright men, hoping to just keep us from ever calling anyone a slut.   As you can see, Satan’s Feminist minions will continue to denounce God-fearing men as being “mean-spirited” or “verbally abusive” even after they have already restricted them from using anything more forceful than mere words to discourage immodesty. The whores and apostate churchians combined satanic goal is to “smash the patriarchy” removing all of men’s ability to correct wayward women, and rule over them well, as the Bible instructs men to do.  Eventually Satan will have the woman-controlled Beta-males at your local megachurch so thoroughly muzzled that you’ll have to ask those poor fools to blink twice if they don’t approve of the clothing-optional Sunday school class for polyamorous members.

Churchian men lack both the will and the loins to tell women to cover their heads when they pray, like God tells us in 1 Corinthians 11:3-10.  Instead they twist God’s word, to nullify God’s commandment, because their actual lord and master whom they serve, wants them to subvert God’s commands.  And they are far too cowardly to tell women to cover their heads, or even to modestly clothe over their tits and asses while at their church.  When the choice is between obeying God and telling women to cover their heads, versus obeying Feminists, who don’t want such a God-ordained symbol of subjection on a woman’s head, to whom does that “church” give the worth-ship to be followed?  The churchians consistently worship women, the creature, above their Creator.

Head is covered

The churches will foolishly fall into Satan’s trap and repeat the sin of Adam and hearken unto the voice of the woman, instead of God, almost every time, even though we are clearly warned against this at the very beginning of the Bible, and the whole earth was cursed because of that very sin.  But that’s no matter to those spiritual retards that mislead today’s whoring churches.  They’ll not only hearken unto the weaker vessels, they’ll go whoring after the government too.

In Kansas our ugly butch-haired Democrat Governess has ordered that all people must cover their faces when in public, presumably to slow the spread of a coronavirus.  And I have no doubt that churchians obediently snapped their face coverings on the very next Sunday after the exalted governess spoke her command.  Whereas these same churches have effectively told God to piss-off, when His word commands that women should cover their heads, and/or veil their faces as the original churches practiced, whenever women might be seeking God’s presence in prayer.  For 1900 years straight every church everywhere throughout Christendom insisted that the women wear head coverings.  But, no longer.

1 Corinthians 11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.  6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.  7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

So, if God says that the head and visage of a man, who is the image of God his glorious Father, should not be covered during prayer, and the Governess orders men’s faces be covered in public, who do you suppose wins in their church when those orders collide during public prayer?  Did all the men take their muzzles off like they would remove their hats according to godly tradition?   Do we even have to ask whom those apostates obeyed, and whom they scorned?

Satan likes to get foolish men to dishonor God, and humiliate themselves.

Just 100 years ago our ancestor’s wives all covered their heads in obedience to God when they went to church or prayed.  And they also weren’t wearing skintight tops or bottoms.  But now these cowardly beta-male preachers pretend the gates of hell won’t prevail against their whoring “churches”, while their spiritual whorehouse’s doors are hell’s gateway.  Satan has already prevailed over them and is now driving a victory lap, while those ignorant men are praying with their faces covered.  They’re just blind guides, leading other blinded people into the pit.  Unless you also want to worship their hefty whores in skin tight clothes, don’t waste your time attending their apostate woman-hearkening training centers.  Start your own home church, where God is feared.

2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Feminist Discontentment

David Torso

The “Problem That Has No Name” was described by Betty Friedan in the beginning of her book The Feminine Mystique’:  The problem lay buried, unspoken, for many years in the minds of American women. It was a strange stirring, a sense of dissatisfaction, a yearning [that is, a longing] that women suffered in the middle of the 20th century in the United States. Each suburban [house]wife struggled with it alone. As she made the beds, shopped for groceries … she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question — “Is this all?”

The driving force behind Feminism, is female discontentment.  Specifically discontentment with men, and with women’s God ordained role of serving men, who are the image and glory of God.(1 Corinthians 11:7)  If only Eve could have been content in a sinless paradise, with a perfect sinless man, made by God Himself, with no rules, except one.  But no!  The malcontent Eve aspired to be as a god also.(Genesis 3:5)  Today’s destructive Feminism is founded upon Satan’s huge lie that men and women are equal, and both in God’s image.  And then building upon that whopper of a lie, Feminism falsely assumes that just as the woman was created to be a help meet for the man, that the man must then also have been created as a help meet for the woman.

Genesis 2:18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

The Old English word “meet”, in that usage, is defined as ~ to fulfill or to satisfy.

As Genesis 2:18 explains the woman was created to be a help to fulfill or satisfy the man.  And when a woman is correctly fulfilling her God ordained role, she will be helping and fulfilling and satisfying her husband.  Because women were created to be helpers who are able to fulfill or satisfy a man’s earthly needs, men consequently have an inclination to wrongly idolize and worship women.  But God explains clearly that men were not created for women:

1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.  8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.  9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

So, who is supposed to fulfill the woman?

Women are supposed to find their own fulfillment and contentment in obeying God and fulfilling their created purpose.   They should be taught to seek contentment in serving their own husbands and raising their own children, if they are blessed with them.   Most of the other things that women today are encouraged to seek fulfillment doing, are just wrong.  They only serve to distract a woman from her true purpose and to create discontentment with her highest calling, to serve and satisfy her husband.

Women’s discontentment is “the fruit” of believing lies.  The truth, is what can truly set women free of discontentment, while they are mindful of the truth.  Women were raised to have false expectations.  They were raised to think of themselves as equal or nearly equal to males.  They were raised to expect their husbands to consult them and to give equal or nearly equal weight to their differing viewpoints.  Nowhere in the Bible is a husband told to get direction from his wife.  Not even from the unachievably ideal Proverbs 31 woman, who “openeth her mouth with wisdom”.  And that is because God actually doesn’t intend for men to hearken unto their wives, as Adam did, but to serve God, with all their heart, with all their soul, and with their entire mind.  The only exception I see in the Bible, is that the husband, by divine covenant, is currently given bodily to his wife, just as she is now owned by him, the two having been united as one flesh by God through sexual union, and the husband is required to give her wholesome sex in compliance with his wife’s reasonable desires.(1 Corinthians 7:2-5)  Otherwise, men have God given dominion over all of creation including womankind which God made for man and gave to man.

Men are gods.

Men are the image and glory of God, Adam was graven by God out of this earth, into God’s own likeness, and God breathed His own essence into the man.  Adam was truly a son of God.(Luke 3:38)  Our jealous God has commanded that no other graven images of gods are allowed.(Leviticus 26:1)  For the sons of Adam truly are God’s sons, and are even repeatedly called gods, by God Himself.(Psalm 82:6-7 & John 10:34-36)  And we know that husbands are to image Jesus Christ, who is God, while wives image the wayward church in need of the constant washing by their “god”, with God’s word, so that husbands, just like Christ, are to act as saviors.  Men are not mere subjects called to lay down their lives at the capricious whims of their wives.  Oh far from it!  Men are the image of God, giving their lives, as needed, for the salvation of their wives, who are symbolically their bodies, just like the church is Christ’s body.(Ephesians 5:22-27)

So are women to idolize their husbands?

Yes!  In fact, wives are commanded to reverence their husbands.(Ephesians 5:33)  God wouldn’t have made husbands to share his image and glory, if He didn’t want husbands to be worthy of reverence also.  And men of God should honor each other.(Romans 12:10)  The Bible goes so far as to say that holy women will call their husbands, “lord”.

1 Peter 3:5 (AMPC)  For it was thus that the pious women of old who hoped in God were [accustomed] to beautify themselves and were submissive to their husbands [adapting themselves to them as themselves secondary and dependent upon them].  6 It was thus that Sarah obeyed Abraham [following his guidance and acknowledging his headship over her by] calling him lord (master, leader, authority). And you are now her true daughters if you do right and let nothing terrify you [not giving way to hysterical fears or letting anxieties unnerve you].

U mad girl?

Does it bother you that I say husbands are gods, sons of God, images of God, to be called lord?  Those are God’s words describing men and husbands, and God should know, since He created us all.   Although your husband was not created for you, or to satisfy you, you should be thrilled down to the tips of your toes to have a husband.   And you should be curling your toes in anticipation of the next time you can join in flesh with your god of flesh, your lord, your likeness of the Most High God.

However most women are deceived, they don’t realize their husband has an allotted portion of divine glory, and is their high priest who represents them before God.  They foolishly think they are their husband’s equal, or even his better.  And consequently they do not look up to him, and do not reverence him, or idolize him by submitting unto him, as unto the Lord.  In fact, many wives don’t even want their husbands.  They deny them sex, and wish they had some other husband.

Discontentment comes because of whoring hearts.

Ezekiel 16:32 You unfaithful wife! You desire strangers instead of your husband.

Tertullian wrote to women: And do you not know that you are Eve?  The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too.  You are the devil’s gateway; you are the unsealer of that (forbidden) tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man.  Because of the death you merited, even the Son of God had to die.

Yes, women are natural defilers,(Revelation 14:4) full of usurping, periodically unclean, certainly not an image of deity, they are gullible, fickle, and frail, full of vainglory and envious of men’s divine image and headship.  Their contempt for their husbands is unfitting, irreverent, and blasphemes God’s word.(Titus 2:4-5)  Women lead men astray, misusing the gifts God gave women to help men, to ensnare men and distract them from their divine mission instead.  Woe to you women who haven’t the sense to adorn yourselves with quietness and shamefacedness.(1 Timothy 2:9-15)  No woman deserves a savior, a Christ figure, a husband who stoops to love them in spite of their wretched selfishness, irreverence, and usurping nature.

Unmerited favor

And yet God has made women joint heirs of His grace with men.  And men, like God, show women the grace of joining down onto them, providing for their care and protection, and shepherding their wives through all their objectionable moods.

Matthew 19:10 (AMPC) The disciples said to Him, If the case of a man with his wife is like this, it is neither profitable nor advisable to marry.

Women truly are the beneficiaries of men’s good graces, and of men’s divine qualities.  I haven’t told the half of the disparity between women and men in this brief post, yet if men and women would even come to realize the truth that I have shared, women could see that they have every reason to be content just having any husband, much less to have gotten one of their own choosing.  Might their father have picked a better husband for them?  Most probably!   But the husband they chose, is certainly deserving of their reverence, their obedience, their honor, their body, their thoughts, and their devotion.

The “problem with no name” is Feminist discontentment.  The solution is for women to realize their husbands are the matchless image of God Most High, while they themselves are inferior vessels who bring trouble by their very nature, and that they should be quite content, even thrilled that they are consequently loved sacrificially, and were taken and possessed by a god of flesh, a son of God who stooped to share his life of divine glory, his divine mission, his earthly journey with them.  Taking on her troubles as his own, and struggling to cleanse her of her character flaws with daily instructions, and restraining himself by his godly grace and patience to forebear violent retribution amid her multitude of failings and her faithless actions.  Every wife is blessed to be so honored as to marry a glorious man made in the very image of God.

Sharkly – Heresiarch or Church Reformer?

Martin Luther the Reformer

Martin Luther is remembered annually on Reformation day, October 31, 1517, for when he began the Protestant Reformation by nailing his 95 Theses, protesting the sale of indulgences, to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany.  His ensuing one man public battle with the Catholic Church was made possible by the arrival of printing presses, whose owners printed, and widely sold to the public, copies of Luther’s criticisms and condemnations of the wayward church.  By the time the papacy responded to Luther’s writings in June 1520 offering Luther 60 days to recant or be excommunicated, Luther, a prolific and compelling writer, had not only publicly denounced the authority of the pope, but had declared him an antichrist.

Heresiarch definition: Arch-Heretic – an originator or chief advocate of a heresy.

I am Sharkly, and as you may know, I consider it foundational to our Christian faith that we understand who God is, and who we are.  I believe God is masculine or male, a Father, Son, and their masculine Spirit, and that men alone are earthly likenesses or images of God.  I believe we are told of this repeatedly in the Bible.  I believe the misunderstanding of God and humankind has led Christendom and the world back into the serpent’s trap of once again deifying women and catering to Eve’s desires rather than the will of our Creator, thereby we worship a creature rather than our Creator.  We as a society make ongoing human child sacrifices, through abortion, at the altar of idolatrous Feminism.  In just our generation we have shed more innocent blood, tearing more babies to bits, than all who died from all the wars of history combined.  The Heavenly Father in great anger will hold our generation to account for this unprecedented sacrifice of innocent babies at the satanic altar of female supremacy.  We must repent and return to the ways set up by our loving Father!

I first realized that men alone were in the image of God by reading Genesis 1:26-27

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image.
In the image of God created he him.
Male and female created he them.

It became apparent to me after reading this that God clearly mentioned man/him(Adam in Hebrew) being made/created in God’s image or likeness, four times right in a row, while then contrastingly telling us that male & Female(them) were only just created by God, with conspicuously no mention of it being done in God’s image.  God clearly went out of His way to solidify that Adam was made in His image, but never is Eve or womankind said to be in God’s image.  So I searched the scriptures for the image of God, and every single place it is mentioned it is assigned to the masculine Adam/men/Jesus.(in non-neutered Bibles)  The Apostle Paul made it quite clear that men alone are the image of God in 1 Corinthians 11:7

For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

No part of God Himself needs to be exhibited through the feminine, because all of God is masculine in Himself and in His representation.  Jesus Christ did not need a female counterpart to exhibit the full image of God according to Colossians 2:9 (Colossians 1:19 states similar)

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

(ESV) 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

There is no exclusively female aspect to the image of God.  The whole of the image of God was shown in Jesus Christ, a man come in the flesh, the Son of God.

I have also come to discover that this is what the early church taught and unanimously believed.  Saint Augustine said:  But we must notice how that which the apostle says, that not the woman but the man is the image of God, is not contrary to that which is written in Genesis, “God created man: in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them: and He blessed them.” For this text says that human nature itself, which is complete in both sexes, was made in the image of God; and it does not separate the woman from the image of God which it signifies. For after saying that God made man in the image of God, “He created him,” it says, “male and female:” or at any rate, punctuating the words otherwise, “male and female created He them.” How then did the apostle tell us that the man is the image of God, and therefore he is forbidden to cover his head; but that the woman is not so, and therefore is commanded to cover hers? Unless, forsooth, according to that which I have said already, when I was treating of the nature of the human mind, that the woman together with her own husband is the image of God, so that that whole substance may be one image; but when she is referred separately to her quality of help-meet, which regards the woman herself alone, then she is not the image of God; but as regards the man alone, he is the image of God as fully and completely as when the woman too is joined with him in one.

Ambrosiaster says:  Paul says that the honor and dignity of a man makes it wrong for him to cover his head, because the image of God should not be hidden. Indeed, it ought not to be hidden, for the glory of God is seen in the man. … A woman therefore ought to cover her head, because she is not the likeness of God but is under subjection.

Epistle of “Mathetes” to Diognetus 10:2a  For God loved men (… whom He created after His own image …) for whose sake He made the world, to whom He subjected all things that are in the earth … [This includes women, who are repeatedly told to be in subjection to their fathers and then husbands]

In past posts I have shared other quotes from early church fathers sharing the unanimous belief of the apostolic and patristic church that only men are the express images of God and designated as representatives of God, here living on earth.  These beliefs were unchanged until the latter portion of the fourth century when the church was taken over and instituted as the state religion of the Roman Empire by Emperor Constantine.  All sorts of politics, greed, and secular rot got syncretized into the church as it became a secular world power.  Notably, Mary was deified, (to appease forcibly converted goddess worshippers) and in the process of doing so, women had to be falsely claimed to be images of God as well as men, for Mary to be able to be deified.  How could Mary be claimed to be equal with Jesus Christ if she wasn’t even in the image of deity?  Mary went from being a minor figure, less mentioned in the Bible than some other women, to then being claimed to be co-redemptrix with Christ, who is the central hero of the Bible.  Today the false belief in women being made in the image of God has been brought to its logical conclusion of making women fully equal to men, just as Mary was blasphemously made equal with Christ.  And today God’s institution of marriage is being debased, and families destroyed, since marriages won’t operate properly because a democracy of two equals can’t resolve conflict and attain the solidarity of a patriarchal family that works together to achieve one man’s ambition, as God intended.  Just as the Protestant reformation after over a millennium rolled back the false divinity of Mary, returning all the reverence due solely to Jesus Christ as all the fullness of the Godhead in human flesh, so also, the image of God, the birthright of men, is a reverence, long stolen, that urgently needs to be returned solely to men.

Here is some Early church advice on telling heretics from true teachers:

Didache (Teaching of the Twelve Apostles) Chapter 11. Concerning Teachers, Apostles, and Prophets.  11:1 Whosoever therefore shall come and teach you all these things that have been said before, receive him; 2 But if the teacher himself be perverted and teach another doctrine to destroy these things, do not listen to him. But if he teaches so as to increase righteousness and the knowledge of the Lord, receive him as the Lord.

So, who is teaching the doctrine that was delivered to the apostolic church?  Based upon the words of the Apostle Paul, and upon the remaining writings of many of the earliest church Fathers, that would be those of us who teach that women by themselves are not the image of God, but that women and men portray Jesus Christ(who is God) and his bride the true church that is eventually to become one with the Lord.

Which doctrine fits best with the rest of scripture, and which doctrine destroys other scriptural doctrines?  The belief that both sexes represent the image of the Most High God, and are thus equal in their rank and dignity, fights against so many other teachings of the Bible:

  1. Ephesians 5 teaches us that husbands image Jesus Christ, while wives image the church.  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  2. Women are told to be in subjection.(1Peter 3:1-2)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  3. Men alone are allowed to represent God and teach His word to both men and women.(1 Timothy 2:12)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  4. Women are not to usurp authority over men. (1 Timothy 2:12)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  5. Women are to reverence their husbands (Ephesians 5:33)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  6. Women are to cover their heads in prayer, but men should not.(1 Corinthians 11:3-9)  So the sexes are clearly not equal when coming before God.
  7. Man was created preeminently in God’s image, while woman was secondly created from man’s flesh and bone.(Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:18-24)  So the sexes are clearly not equal in their creation.
  8. The husband is to be the head,(1 Corinthians 11:3) and the wife the helper.(Genesis 2:18)  So the sexes are clearly not equal in rank.
  9. Women are unavoidably ceremonially unclean during menstruation,(Leviticus 15:19-27, Leviticus 18:19, Ezekiel 18:5-6, Ezekiel 36:17) So the sexes are clearly not equal.  Nor does that periodic uncleanness fit the image of God.
  10. Women are natural defilers. (Revelation 14:4)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  11. We are clearly told that women are the “weaker vessel”.(1 Peter 3:7)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  12. We are told specifically that women are to be shamefaced. (1 Timothy 2:9)  So the sexes are clearly not of equal glory and status.

Those are just a dozen of the many other doctrines that are damaged by having women equally in the image of the Most High God, that first popped into my head.  Feel free to offer more in the comments section.

Some women might falsely claim that giving husband’s dominion, as unto the Lord, will lead to cruelty and abuses, well here is how it should work as described by the apostolic church:

Epistle of “Mathetes” to Diognetus from Chapter 10How will you love Him who has first so loved you? And if you love Him, you will be an imitator of His kindness. And do not wonder that a man may become an imitator of God. He can, if he is willing. For it is not by ruling over his neighbors, or by seeking to hold the supremacy over those that are weaker, or by being rich, and showing violence towards those that are inferior, that happiness is found; nor can any one by these things become an imitator of God. But these things do not at all constitute His majesty. On the contrary he who takes upon himself the burden of his neighbor; he who, in whatsoever respect he may be superior, is ready to benefit another who is deficient; he who, whatsoever things he has received from God, by distributing these to the needy, becomes a god to those who receive [his benefits]: he is an imitator of God.

So as you can see, being the image of God places greater duty upon the man, to look out for his inferior, including the call to be ready to lay his life down for his bride, like Christ(God) did for His bride the church.  Truly understanding and practicing God’s order for the family will lead to deeper love and harmony than the lie of having two supposed equals constantly contending with each other for control.

So in conclusion, I want to bring the church back to its original teaching on womankind, where “she is not the likeness of God but is under subjection.”  This fits far better with the rest of the Bible’s doctrines,  and it destroys the basis for evil Feminism that has unleashed so much death and destruction against our own children.  God’s plan is based upon His love, and will promote greater harmony between the sexes again, when properly followed.  Join me in returning back to God’s simple truth.
