God-Given Roles Of Men And Women

After reading these two articles here and here, this writer has come to the conclusion that all the problems we find between male and female in our ungodly and immoral society, largely come about because men and women are confused about their specific gender roles.

As God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), He has provided us with the chain of authority/command that we are to adhere to in order for relationships to work smoothly and properly.

In 1 Corinthians 11:3, the apostle Paul states: "But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God" - also see commentary and note Ephesians 5:22-23; Genesis 3:16; 1 Timothy 2:11-15; John 14:28; Philippians 2:5-9-11.

Once a society reverses the gender roles and leaves God and Christ out of the chain of authority/command, relationships between men and women will only end in confusion and perversion (see transgender articles below). Just look at the divorce rate and see if this is not true. Beloved, God's established plan for the roles of both men and women will work every single time, "if" God's chain of authority/command is adhered to.
