iheartrainbowdash-deactivated20 asked: Bible verses that promote blatant sexism. 1 Corinthians 11:3 ; 1 Corinthians 11:7 - 9 ; 1 Corinthians 14:34 - 35 ; Ephesians 5:22 - 25 ; Colossians 3:18 ; 1 Timothy 2:9 - 15 ; Romans 7:2 ; Titus 2:3 - 5 ; 1 Peter 3:1 -3 ; 1 Peter 3:5 -7 ; Genesis 3:16 ; Leviticus 12:2 ; Leviticus 12:5 ; Esther 1:22 ; Job 25:4 ; Ecclesiastes 7:26 ; Deuteronomy 22:5 ; 1 Corinthians 11:14
Genesis 3:16- God’s punishment for Eve for making Adam take a bite of the forbidden fruit. The next verse then punishes Adam for listening to Eve and going against the only rule they had. So even though our husbands “rule over us” we still can control them.
Deuteronomy 22:5- Basically don’t try to go against your sexuality. You’re born how you were born.
Esther is actually a woman herself. There is a movie kinda about her called One Night with the King. She is girl power. The verse you posted is actually what a king put as a law, he also basically made the Jewish population like slaves. This book isn’t about how he’s a perfect example, but about Esther.
Ecc. 7:26-Not talking about all women. Just the bad ones that try to tempt men.
Rom 7:2-The husband is also bound to his wife. In marriage, why shouldn’t you be bound to the one you love, whether or not you’re religious?
1 Cor 11:7-9- Woman was a gift to man from God because Adam didn’t have a partner. After these verses it continues to say that woman should have a symbol of authority on her head, man isn’t independent of woman and vice versa, Even though woman comes from man, man comes through woman.
1 Cor. 11:14- Is about men. The verse after is about women. I also agree with this verse personally, because I just think guys with long hair are gross. But that’s not because of religion, I just think so.
Ephesians 5:22-25- Verse 25 is telling men to love their wives, and after saying that he should love her as himself. Yayyy love! Same thing with Colossians 3:18, after it goes on to tell husbands to love their wives.
1 Tim 2:9-Don’t find anything wrong with this. I don’t think girls should be dressing like sluts, and we should be modest. Leaves more to the imagination.
1 Pet 3:5-7-Why WOULDN’T you want to help out your husband? I agree it is a two way street, but that doesn’t mean that because you’re a woman you can’t serve your love one too. Verse 7 tells husbands, ONCE AGAIN, to honor their wives.
Titus 2:3-5- Right before it tells men to be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience, THEN goes on in verse 3 that women do the same.
I looked up all of the verses you gave me. My bible isn’t with me, but I have my handy dandy BIBLE APP! And I might’ve accidentally missed one, because I decided to do the books in order so I didn’t have to scroll up and down since the verses are out of order how you gave them to me. And I didn’t expect to want to say things to some verses but I did, but I didn’t ignore the ones I didn’t have anything specific to say about them.
You have to understand that women used to be looked down upon because of Eve being the reason why humanity fell.
And even today women are looked at as the ones who take care of the family and the home, and men make the money. Not that men can’t take care of kids, but because back then they didn’t have a lot of jobs that women could do. They had to be strong to do a lot of the work, and you can’t deny the fact that men are physically stronger than women. So women usually had to be the ones that stayed home.
What’s really cool that in one Native American tribe, they celebrated when a girl got their period. It’s looked upon as gross and unclean in other cultures, but they celebrated it because it amazed them how a man could go into war and die from a wound, but women bleed for a week once every month and never die! Irrelevant
but I thought it was a cool though.
Thanks though [: I’m very much a person that likes to read things in order, so I would’ve never been able to read these verses anytime soon since I decided to read the New Testament first (since I failed repeatedly at reading the Old testament first) and I’m still stuck on the first book.
Songs of Solomon is like one big love story saying how beautiful a woman is and so on. It’s sweet. [:
If you were to go to my church, you’d be amazed at how many feminist Catholics we have. I’m even amazed. But I love these girls with all my heart. [:
Have a great day!
