The last of the pre-blog material. There will be a part 3 coming soon, and it will be the first long piece of this blog. This is dedicated to the good, but simply misinformed women out there. Enjoy!
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
-Attributed to Edmund Burke
This will be a continuation of the previous long post. So now for a second point on Genesis 3:16-17, concerning Adam (and all men thereafter): God actually cursed Adam for listening to Eve.
Let us examine this sentence: “And to Adam he said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life”. Notice the sentence structure. God cursed Adam in the area of work and attributes this to Adam listening to Eve. In context we can expand this out some. Adam had previously been silent when Satan (the serpent) had tempted Eve to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and he did nothing to stop her when she ate. In fact, not only did he not stop her, he went along with her in her sin! He was passive.
What makes this even more tragic is that Eve was created out of Adam AFTER God told HIM instructions about how to live and not to eat the forbidden fruit:
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, ‘You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.’
Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.'” (Genesis 2:16-18 ESV)
Notice the event sequence: First, God tells Adam not to eat from the fruit, and THEN God talks about making Eve. Eve was not there when God told this to Adam. It was his job to teach her. In fact, if you read Genesis 1-2, God, when speaking to humanity, NEVER speaks to Eve. Conversely, when Satan speaks, he speaks first and only to Eve. God instructed Adam, and it was Adam’s job to pass along God’s teachings to Eve. We see this because ultimately Adam bears responsibility for the Fall, even though Eve sinned first. This is because Adam is the one who failed, not Eve.
Adam should have guarded her from the serpent and instructed her in the truth which he had received. Judging from the fact that the Fall happened, we can assume one of two things: Either he failed to instruct and teach her, and therefore sinned by being passive, or he failed to stop her from sinning, and sinned by enabling and joining in her sinful behavior (“Whatever you say, dear”). Regardless, the ultimate buck stopped at his feet.
As an aside, note that this trend of God instructing men who then are to instruct women (specifically their wives) is present throughout the Bible. In Paul’s letters to Timothy and the Corinthian church, he explicitly lays this out. Peter does as well. Both authors link back to Genesis. For reference, see 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 (Where Paul calls it shameful for women to speak in church…I would pay to hear a modern pastor preach THAT), 1 Timothy 2:11-15, and 1 Peter 3:1-6 among other passages. The message is pretty clear.
Again, much more could and should be said about all this, but I would for now just point out that that is what Feminism is: Women behaving badly, ENABLED BY MEN. Men, not women, are the gas that keeps the vehicle of feminism and women’s (false) lib and all of that nonsense rolling. Men fund it with their tax dollars, ignoring of it (more on that later), and male feminists fund it with their active efforts. In a way, male feminists especially represent Adam well; they aid and abet a million Eves in their sinning. Even in the church, men are afraid to correct women when they are in error, because they do not want to deal with the backlash. They would rather dance around issues like lack of female chastity and submission, because in confronting them they would expose their own sins of enabling, and of rebelling against God themselves. Not only that, but it must be said that with the verbal skill naturally gifted the female of humanity, for a man to oppose her is not an easy feat!
Regardless, it is important to note this: Ultimately, feminism, SIWs, SJWs, PC garbage, and other nonsense will stop when men collectively decide they’ve had enough. A large (if not the largest) part of why this mess has gotten so big over the last half-century is because men largely ignored it. The idea was that real men had better things to do, or that men did not want to be bothered with a bunch of women screaming at them (i.e. the nagging wife of Proverbs…), so they walked off. This notion is not dead; there is a large branch of men who are actively and passively trying their best to ignore and escape all this, and who scream in anger when it slowly creeps back to them.
Women have usurped the government in the form of the welfare state as a sort of false husband, but the government is largely funded by men’s tax dollars (men pay the VAST majority of taxes in general, look it up…), and so it follows men with harsher regulations and more taxation. Women have constantly demanded more and more insane and inane things via the feminist rebellion, but behind the scenes many men are getting paid to aid them. Women constantly try to worm their way into all-male spaces, with men doing no such similar thing. This is natural, because WOMEN FOLLOW MEN. They must; we provide the resources, directly or indirectly via the State, which they need to survive. I could break this down, but I would have to write an entire thesis to adequately cover it.
In summary, women and men will follow men, but in general, men will not follow women. For example, I have heard both men and women say that they like male bosses better than female bosses (and there is a reason that they say it, believe me…). This means that until men in this country collectively stop running from women and the State, wake up from virtual reality, drugs, hedonism, and alcohol, and address these rebellious, shrieking women and the men who enable them, this mess will just keep getting worse. Women spend the vast majority of all income generated (again, look it up…), and they will get that spending money one way or the other; from their husbands and fathers and male friends/bfs, ect., or from all men indirectly through government welfare, affirmative action, and taxation. The bottom line is, though: Where we go as men, they must and will follow us. So at some point, we must deal with them. However, we must do so lovingly and resist our urge to overly repress them. More on that last point next long post. Peace.
