by Lori Alexander from Always Learning – Were the Women of Old Submissive?
Editor’s note: So now it’s not just evil feminism to blame, it’s women and Satan? The rest women struggle with being cheerfully submissive is not because of sin, it’s because it’s not at all how we were designed to behave. It’s faking it, lying on a grand scale. How is living a lie a righteous Godly thing?
The picture in our minds that we get about life during the Leave It to Beaver and FatherKnows Best days is that all women must have been gentle, kind, modest, submissive to their husbands and love being keepers at home but was this really the case? No, women have always struggled with being cheerfully submissive and content being at home or else the Bible wouldn’t have older women teaching younger women these things. Yes, there are some personalities that are more the pleasing types who don’t fight and argue to get their way, but they are far and few between. All of this disobedience happened once sin entered the world and it is what we are fighting against. We may think it is only feminism but it is not.Satan entered the world and became the prince of the power of the air when Eve wrested control from Adam and dashed all of civilization into chaos. Even most of the “great” women of old that we read about in the Old Testament weren’t examples of godly womanhood at times. Sarah wanted her husband to sleep with another woman in order to get a baby, thus going against God’s promise to her and Abraham’s will.
