In Genesis 1 and 2 we are introduced to God’s creation. Genesis 1 caps off the creative work of God with creating male and female of everything, but in Genesis 2 we see that God didn’t initially create a female human– she was a special creation. It is this special creation and what it means that has a profound impact on the world we live in and the culture war that American Christianity now finds itself waging.
Scripture points out that part of the curse was that the woman would have her husband rule over her. Many scholars believe that part of this is that there would be tension between them with the wife constantly trying to rule over the husband.
It would have been so much better not to have sinned. But given this, godly wife, do you rule over your husband, or do you follow his lead?
