Great Stuff — Women Don’t Need To Get Drafted To Be Equal With Men

Found an article by Pr. Hans Fiene over on The Federalist:

 

womancombat-300x200When God put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden naked, this was a sign that he had given our first parents all they needed. Because God had created them without sin, they had no need for the shame that normally accompanies nakedness.

Then Satan came along with his slithery words of deception and convinced Eve that she and Adam needed to know good and evil as God did. If they were to be complete as man and woman, Satan effectively told them, they needed to be clothed in a garment called equality with God.

So when the Lord found Adam and Eve hiding in shame and fear over their fig-leaf-covered nakedness, he asked them, “Who told you that you were naked?”

In other words, he was saying, “Who told you that you weren’t equal? I’ve given you everything that belongs to me, all of my love, all of my creation. Who told you that you weren’t free? Was it the serpent, who wants to make you his slaves? Who told you that you needed to seize something I didn’t give you in order to be complete? Was it Satan, who wants to take away every good gift that I gave to you? Why would you believe that true peace could be found by trusting the words of the one who only wants to give you war?”

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.

  1. Good stuff, as usually is the case from Pr. Fiene. He makes an excellent Christian argument, which sadly will probably fall on deaf pagan ears. I was particularly fond of this quote:

    “Instead of creating you to die for your husbands, God created you to be worth dying for. This is a far greater glory than the Selective Service could ever offer you.”

    If only our people could get a better grasp on the reality that equality of value does not mean equality of function, and that complimentarity between the sexes is far better, natural, and livable than radical homogenization.
