violet’s bible interpretations part 3
Today’s bible study will look at how Christians are told their god God views women. The Bible is written by men for men, and many of the authors like to be clear to their fellow men exactly how women should behave. I don’t want to linger in the Old Testament because there are way too many, way too odd things to choose from. So we’ll got straight to the more reliable and more sensible New Testament. Remember to check out the original text in your own benevolent deity’s book of truth and love if you think I might be exaggerating.
Ephesians 5: 22-33
Women are ordered to submit to their husbands in everything and remember that men always take the lead. Thankfully men are ordered to love, love, love their wives as they love themselves. In fact, husband and wife are one being. But the man’s in charge.
1 Timothy 2:11 – 15
Women need to shut up and never think they could possibly be in charge of men, because men are obviously better. Women are second-class, they are bad and if it wasn’t for the fact that they can pop out babies, they’d all be sent straight to hell.
1 Peter 3
Women are (yet again, just in case you were unsure) to be submissive to their husbands. Good women are pretty but they shouldn’t have to try in any way by sorting out their hair or wearing nice clothes and jewellery. Because if they are nice and good women, their beauty will be obvious. Therefore, ugly women are evil. Oh, and a good woman calls her husband ‘master’.
If you are a Christian and you think women are entitled to equal rights, you clearly don’t think much of the god God’s book editing powers. Just how powerful and benevolent would such a deity be?
