by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy – Created To NEED A Help Meet
Editor’s note: Ad ad written by Michael as to why a man must marry and have a help meet of his own or be incomplete. Not a very convincing argument from here.
There’s something that God placed in the woman that he didn’t put in the man. It’s as if God created us in his image. Adam and Eve together are in the image and likeness of God. But man and woman are different – so something of God’s image is in the man and something a little different is in the woman. When the two come together into one flesh and one spirit, then you have the full expression of God’s nature.
A man who never marries can serve God. He can be a prophet. He can be a eunuch that ministers. But he’ll never have that complete roundness of personality that is required to be the full expression of the Godhead: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
