Satan hates women!
He hates women with an eternal hatred.
You may wonder how I arrived at such a conclusion.
Well, first of all, think of the many times throughout history that women have been victimized, traumatized, ignored and belittled, enslaved and treated as sex objects, looked upon as stupid and less intelligent than their male counterparts.
Throughout the world, in many societies, women are still treated as a piece of property; something to be owned, used, misused, battered, and traded. Nothing more than a slave.
You may be thinking, “It’s not that way in America, or other civilized countries.”
What about all of the television commercials which use a woman’s sex appeal to promote beer sales? Why not give the job to an 82 year old great grandmother? One reason. Her looks.
Automobiles, smart phones, you name it… all use pretty women to sell their products.
And how about the “adult entertainment” industry? Sure, everyone appears to be having a wonderful time. But a closer observation will reveal the main focus of the industry is the male. Women are used to please the male; one way or another.
Fantasizing with online images, film or magazine images, is an affront against all women.
It lowers their value to nothing more than an object to be used, then discarded after one reaches their climax.
Pornography degrades human dignity, especially the dignity of women.
Sex trafficking, the buying, selling, trading, raping/using of young girls, men and women, is a world-wide atrocity. And while men, and even young boys, have become the sex slaves of some violent and perverted traders, the victims are predominantly female.
Just another example of Satan’s hatred toward women.
Yes, Satan hates women and is doing his best to keep them far beneath their God-given destiny. He wants them to forever view themselves as insignificant, valueless, subhuman beings. Sex objects, baby bearers, servant to every male.
Satan is the type to hold a grudge.
Remember? Many, many years ago, in a garden called Eden, a man, a woman, and a serpent had a little conversation.
The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
“Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’” “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
“The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness.
“So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.”(Genesis 3:1-7 NLT)
Along came the Lord God and began to question the man and woman.
“What? Why are you two hiding from me?”
“The woman, whom you gave to me, handed me the fruit so I ate it”, said the man.
“Oh? And young lady, what do you have to say?”
“It was the serpent’s smooth and deceptive speech that caused me to forget your words and pursue the forbidden fruit.”
Or, in other words, “The serpent deceived me. That’s why I ate it.”
Did you catch that? The man shielded the true deceiver while the woman exposed him.
Yes, it was the woman who responded in truth when interrogated by God.
And it was the testimony of the woman that caused the Lord to turn to the serpent, the devil, and say, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all animals, domestic and wild. You will crawl on your belly, groveling in the dust as long as you live. And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:13-15 NLT)
Ever since that time, Satan has hated women.
And he is doing his best to get the world to do the same.
Husbands, loving your wife because she…
Pleases you in bed
Is a good mother
Has a lot of money
Let’s you have your man cave
Isn’t like your mom…
…isn’t necessarily love. What happens when she can’t “perform” in any of the above categories?
Don’t act like the devil. Don’t hate your wife. Love her in the same way Christ loves the church.
He gave Himself so the church could really live.
Don’t hate women.
Don’t use them for your selfish pleasure.
The Lord came to seek and save, among other things, the value and dignity of the one who told the truth.
