June 17, 2012 | A Help-Mate For Him: Eve and Biblical Femininity - Father's Day 2012

On Mother's Day, we looked at the story and legacy of Adam - the first man. Thus for Father's Day, we looked at his wife - Eve - in order to understand the creation of woman and what true, biblical femininity is. There are hard truths here, but necessary truths.

My concern here is that such a message will be labeled as patriarchal and sexist without even really considering the argument. Unfortunately, we live in a feminized culture where it is ok to criticize men and masculinity, but not women and femininity. The Bible is an equal opportunity employer and calls sin what it is. Sin transcends gender and so does the gospel. Our only question is, will we submit?
