Men and Women are not equal do you agree?

Extracts from this document...


Men and Women are not equal do you agree? NO, I do not agree. I believe that men and women are equal in the eyes of God as they were created in the image of himself (God), The Bible teaches that both man and woman were created in God's image, so they have a direct relationship with God, and shared jointly in the responsibilities of bearing and upbringing of their children and having responsibilities over the created order this is said in Genesis (1:26-28). Therefore they are as he is and and are equal but looks and personal properties are different because they have special qualities that the other can not carry out. The bible teaches that men and women were created by God for full and equal partnership and responsilbities (in which are different but same in the sense of equality). ...read more.


The Bible teaches that man and woman were co-participants in the Fall: Adam was no less sinful than Eve was it's only that Eve was unluckily the first this is said in the book Genesis 3:6 (and in other forms in Rom 5:12-21 & 1 Cor 15:21-22). In the bible it says that all the people that are Jews and non-Jews are the devil meaning that they will sin. In the Christian family the husband and wife are to consider each other's preferences, desires and problems. Neither of them should seek to dominate the other and to take control, but each of them should consider themselves of a lesser equality to the other in case they start to consider the other as better or worse then themself. They should search for answers through biblical methods rather than by choosing a decision upon the other. ...read more.


Now everything is modern women do not beleive that they should stay home and beleive that they are equal to work as much as a man does. "Wives ........... be submissive to your husbands ..........Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner." its says this in Peter (3: 1, 7). They say that women are weaker because Eve was the first to sin and she also encouraged Adam to the same. "Ther is neither ............... male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." its says this in Galations (3:28). Which proves that Men and Women are equal in the eyes of Jesus, who talks all that God has taught him and the beliefs of God. Men and Women were created equally; they were made inn the image of God therefore there is no real difference between them and they both are equal. Ahmed Ripon ...read more.
