GOD MAKE MEN AND WOMEN

welcome back to class

 

Memory verse: in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

What is creation? (Genesis 1)

Creation is the process of causing things to exist. Creation is all that God has created within time and beyond. It is a narrative of how the world began and how people first came to inhabit it.

 

Roles of men and women. (Gen 2:18-25, 3:13-19)

When God created men and women, he gave them different roles.

Roles of men

  1. The man is the head of the family
  2. He is the breadwinner of the family
  3. He ensures the safety of the members of the family
  4. He raises his children in the way of Lord
  5. He initiates the family devotion every day.
  6. He loves the wife and children

 

Roles of women

  1. She cares for the family
  2. She prepares the meal for the family
  3. She nurtures the children in the way of the Lord
  4. She teaches them to be responsible
  5. She trains her children to be hard working.

 

  • Confusing gender distinction (Eph 5:21-33)

According to Ephesians, God clearly distinguished the roles of the man and woman. The man is the head of the family. He protects, secures and provide for the family.

The woman also has her own specific roles such as caring the family, supporting the husband in running the affairs of the family.

But to clear the confusion on gender distinction, we say that the roles of the man and woman are distinct although they complement one another. The woman for example can provide for the needs of her family but that is not her original role.

  4. There is no inequality with God
