The Doctrine of Man – Part 2

27 Jan

II. The Creation of Woman

The creation of woman was similar to many of the things that we studied about in the creation of man. Differences or additions to that would include:

A. Woman was made with childbearing capability

Genesis 1:27-28 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

B. Woman was made to help the man in accomplishing, as a team, the will of God for his life

Genesis 2:18, 20, 24 “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him….And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him…Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

1 Corinthians 11:8-9 “For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”

C. Woman was made so that man would not have to exist alone

Genesis 2:18 “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”

D. Woman was fashioned out of Adam’s rib, unlike Adam who was fashioned out of the dust of the earth

Genesis 2:21-23 “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

Because of this, she was given the name “WOMAN” which means “of the man.” The woman is “the glory of man.”

E. Women and men were made to be mutually dependent upon each other

Thus God instituted that most men and women get married – Genesis 2:24-25 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

1 Corinthians 11:11-12 “Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.”

There really should not be a war between the sexes, but rather a mutual respect, knowing that both need each other. This is the way God planned it. He did NOT plan for man to be with man, nor woman to be with woman. That is an abomination to God.

    We have such a position of privilege. I’m thankful to be a woman!
