Did God create Women to be subservient to Man?
- Anonymous10 months agoFavorite Answer
The Bible is clear that when God made the first man that woman was not in his mind. Eve was a second thought. And he took her out of the man, made her from the man, and gave her to the man to be his helper, and bear and raise his children. As for who the leader would be, God told the woman that her husband would rule over her ...
Genesis 3:16 KJV — Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Later in the NT, he commanded wives to submit to their husbands
Ephesians 5:22-24 KJV — Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Some don't like the ways God does things, but no one will ever change them.

HOW SHOULD A HUSBAND AND WIFE TREAT EACH OTHER? Jehovah created men and woman to fill complementary roles in marriage. ( genesis 2:18) As family head, a husband should take the lead in providing materially for his family and in teaching them about God. He should be self- sacrificing in his love for his wife. Husbands and wives should love and respect each other. Since all husbands and wives are imperfect, learning to forgive is a key to happiness in marriage. Read Ephesians 4:31, 32; 5:22-25, 33; 1 Peter 3:7. for more information JW.ORG

No. He created men and women to be completely complementary to each other.

No true Christians should detest this advice.
This arrangement does not make a wife inferior to her husband. It actually helps her to fulfill the role God had in mind for a wife when he said: “It is not good for the man (Adam) to continue to be alone.
I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him.” Just as Christ, the “head of the congregation,” displays love, a Christian husband is to exercise loving headship. When he does so, his wife feels secure and finds satisfaction in being respectful, supportive, and submissive.
Imitating Jesus’ example requires that his followers love one another just as he loved them. Eph. 5:25

No. God created us equal with men.

Nope. That's just what the bible says. But, that's as accurate as it's claim plants predate the sun. There's actually a scientific understanding of the reality behind this topic.
There are millions of years worth of evidence of things like bacteria, yeasts, fungi, etc. with no gender whatsoever predating any evidence of male and female.
The first sexual beings to reproduce somewhat like us were around 2.5 billion years ago. They were what biologists call isogamous, where the things are somewhere between male and female. Many organisms, including some fungi, algae and single-celled pond-swimmers, still practice isogamy. In doing so, they offer clues to the mystery of why and how the sexes ever evolved. Instead of mixing sperm and eggs they mingle sex cells of roughly the same size — generically known as gametes Plus gametes only combine with minus.
The why is the interesting part, and the answer is mitochondria. It's become clear in recent years that mitochondria are no mere built-in features but a sort of friendly parasitic bacteria living with us in a symbiotic relationship. They propagate as your cells divide and, in animals, pass from mothers to offspring through eggs.
While they seem to be working for us, they have no binding contract to continue to do so. Because they carry their own DNA, they can mutate, the scientists say, so you could in theory get a new strain of mitochondria that's very good at replicating, but not very good for you.
One way to prevent such a spread of bad mutations is to avoid mixing mitochondria when you reproduce. But if you're isogamous, you're exchanging same-sized gametes instead of sperm and eggs. To keep mitochondria in check many organisms kill the ones from their mates. This could have been a slow process as more and more populations evolved to fight mitochondria from mates. You'd slowly move to two separate groups. Killers only mate with non-killers and you end up with two mating types.
So, there you have it. An origin of male and female, tied to why mitochondrial DNA is passed only on the mother's side, with a survival advantage by avoiding potentially harmful mitochondrial mutations.

Humans were not created at all, the question is in error.
