The Bible: Its views on women Pt1

Filed under: Religion — truth_seeker @ 9:59 pm

Once again, Just to let you know I believe fully in God. I just dont trust the Bible.

Lets take a look at how women are viewed in the Bible.

Rape, objects to be taken

Judges 21:10-24

10And the congregation sent thither twelve thousand men of the valiantest, and commanded them, saying, Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead with the edge of the sword, with the women and the children.

11And this is the thing that ye shall do, Ye shall utterly destroy every male, and every woman that hath lain by man.

12And they found among the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead four hundred young virgins, that had known no man by lying with any male: and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan.

13And the whole congregation sent some to speak to the children of Benjamin that were in the rock Rimmon, and to call peaceably unto them.

14And Benjamin came again at that time; and they gave them wives which they had saved alive of the women of Jabeshgilead: and yet so they sufficed them not.

15And the people repented them for Benjamin, because that the LORD had made a breach in the tribes of Israel.

16Then the elders of the congregation said, How shall we do for wives for them that remain, seeing the women are destroyed out of Benjamin?

17And they said, There must be an inheritance for them that be escaped of Benjamin, that a tribe be not destroyed out of Israel.

18Howbeit we may not give them wives of our daughters: for the children of Israel have sworn, saying, Cursed be he that giveth a wife to Benjamin.

19Then they said, Behold, there is a feast of the LORD in Shiloh yearly in a place which is on the north side of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.

20Therefore they commanded the children of Benjamin, saying, Go and lie in wait in the vineyards;

21And see, and, behold, if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in dances, then come ye out of the vineyards, and catch you every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh, and go to the land of Benjamin.

22And it shall be, when their fathers or their brethren come unto us to complain, that we will say unto them, Be favourable unto them for our sakes: because we reserved not to each man his wife in the war: for ye did not give unto them at this time, that ye should be guilty.

23And the children of Benjamin did so, and took them wives, according to their number, of them that danced, whom they caught: and they went and returned unto their inheritance, and repaired the cities, and dwelt in them.

24And the children of Israel departed thence at that time, every man to his tribe and to his family, and they went out from thence every man to his inheritance.

Now I know it does not specify rape in these verses, but think about for a min. You have 12,000 men con marching into a town with orders to kill all the men and all women that are not virgins. (by the way if you read a verse or 2 before this you see that God commanded this) Then they took 400 virgins as POWs. Gave them to some men. THEY GAVE THEM THE WOMAN!!!!! They didnt ask these woman they were given away like candy. Then when they saw there was not enough they told the men to go and TAKE some of these woman. Then when the fathers came to argue this they said dont be upset you should do us this favor because there werent enough woman in the town we just slaughtered and dont feelguilty because you didnt give them to us.

I sorry but thats BS. As for the rape what do you think happened to these women that were forced to marry these men? Read between the lines.

More rape, More women as objects. Pedophilia 

7And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

8And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

9And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.

10And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.

11And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts.

12And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.

13And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

14And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.

15And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

16Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

17Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

18But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

This one is with Moses. Wow bet you thought Moses was a pretty cool guy and all. Hand picked to free the slaves and all. Well lets look at these verses. Here at first they just killed the men. OK, fine rules of war, I can live with that. They took all the women, kids and loot. But then when Moses sees this he is furious. Tells them to kill every male kid and every woman who is not a virgin and you can keep the virgins for your self. They even said children. CHILDREN WTF MAN, CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Women you are beneath us men.

Ephesians 5:22-24

22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Now to be fair this does continue on by telling men how to treat their wives. But lets look at this. I see as as because I am your husband you are to do as I say when I say. If I say jump then you better say how high. If I say spread your legs then you better spread them. How many of you women are willing to this. If you call yourself good christian women then you better be doing it. Sorry but once again this is a load of BS. This crap was written by men to subjagate you women.

Ok thats it for now. I will continue this with a part 2. There is still much to go and I am skipping over a lot.
