A Universal Hierarchy

1 Corinthians 11:3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

1. Head of woman is man
2. Head of every man is Christ
3. Head of Christ is God

This passage gives a hierarchy to the universe.
1. God
2. Christ
3. Man
4. Woman

I’m sure there are many women who won’t appreciate being at the bottom of the totem pole.


If you marry a divorced woman, you’re committing adultery!

Matthew 5:32b …and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

(See also Matthew 19:9)

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

If your wife was previously divorced, you’re in a perpetual state of adultery.

I’m not sure what to recommend to those in this situation. Please don’t attempt to divorce your wife to free yourself from this sin. We’ll show later that God hates divorce (which could be also considered a sin). This is truly being between a rock and a hard place.


Have the prostitute burned to death says the man who slept with her

Genesis 38:13-18,24 When Tamar was told, “Your father-in-law is on his way to Timnah to shear his sheep,” she took off her widow’s clothes, covered herself with a veil to disguise herself, and then sat down at the entrance to Enaim, which is on the road to Timnah. For she saw that, though Shelah had now grown up, she had not been given to him as his wife.

When Judah saw her, he thought she was a prostitute, for she had covered her face. Not realizing that she was his daughter-in-law, he went over to her by the roadside and said, “Come now, let me sleep with you.”
“And what will you give me to sleep with you?” she asked. “I’ll send you a young goat from my flock,” he said.
“Will you give me something as a pledge until you send it?” she asked. He said, “What pledge should I give you?” “Your seal and its cord, and the staff in your hand,” she answered. So he gave them to her and slept with her, and she became pregnant by him.

..About three months later Judah was told, “Your daughter-in-law Tamar is guilty of prostitution, and as a result she is now pregnant.” Judah said, “Bring her out and have her burned to death!”

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

Don’t you find it interesting that the very man who slept with Tamar thinking she’s a prostitute is calling for her to be burnt to death because she was guilty of prostitution? Don’t you find that a bit hypocritical?


Women cursed with painful childbirth and subjection to men

Genesis 3:16 To the woman he said,
“I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing;
with pain you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

I wonder what the statement “you desire will be your your husband” means and why it’s a curse?


Rape, Murder, and extreme violence

Judges 19:22-29 While they were enjoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, “Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him.”

The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, don’t be so vile. Since this man is my guest, don’t do this disgraceful thing. Look, here is my virgin daughter, and his concubine. I will bring them out to you now, and you can use them and do to them whatever you wish. But to this man, don’t do such a disgraceful thing.”

But the men would not listen to him. So the man took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight.

When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, “Get up; let’s go.” But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.

When he reached home, he took a knife and cut up his concubine, limb by limb, into twelve parts and sent them into all the areas of Israel.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

Wow! This is definitely X-Rated stuff. Doesn’t this sound very similar to the Lot story?
