3 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.
Greetings my beloved brothers and sisters,
I find it very interesting how society has attempted to establish a new model for the family. Now instead of Adam and Eve society states that it could be Adam and Steve or Amanda and Evelyn. However; God has established the model for the family in the very beginning of time recorded in the book of Genesis. God's order is divine order, not only has society tried to change the model of the family but it has attempted the change the order of the church. The above text serves as a guideline where it declares," the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God." Interesting enough most women want their men to be head of their household but it does not really matter if their Pastor is a women who is the head of their spiritual family. Let me make one thing clear, if your pastor is a woman I am not here to debate her calling, but I am here to talk about headship according to the scriptures.The bible declares in 1 Corinthians 11:8-9, "For man is not from woman, but woman from man. 9 Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. In regards to headship and divine order, man was created first and he was not created for the woman but the woman was created for the man. In this statement exist the order and purpose of both man and woman. The man was created first, thus the head of the family and the church. The woman was created for the man thus the purpose of woman, that is why God stated that it was not good for man to be alone and that he would create him a helper comparable to him (Genesis 2:18). As we continue to talk about divine order the bible declares," Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord. 12 For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God" (1 Cor 11:11-12). Therefore; women play a significant role in God's the divine order. The reference text in 1 Corinthians the 11 chapter addresses the issue of head coverings in which most of the today's churches do not pay any attention to because the head coverings are symbolic of divine order. The world thoughts and ways in regards to divine order have infiltrated the churches. In conclusion, as Paul ended his statements in verse 16," But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God. Which means that if the order which God has established seems to be to hard to swallow there is no other customs or traditions that we as believers in Christ can follow at home or at church.
