Patriarchy

Patriarchy is a social system that holds that men should lead. This system proved its success with the emergence of several civilizations since ancient times, unlike the Matriarchal system which is confined to a few isolated areas in The World. Feminists claim that Christianity and/or the Bible invented patriarchy, however, patriarchy has existed since ancient times.

Creationists and Evolutionists both agree that the patriarchal system has existed since the beginning of humanity. Creationists believe that God gave authority to men by Adam. Evolutionists believe that women were fruit gatherers who looked for a man that was good at hunting and who would protect them from predators, and put these men as leaders over the women for these purposes.

Getting rid of patriarchy in the West has lead to an increase in divorce and dysfunctional families.

Feminists demonize the patriarchy and consider it the cause of world wars and other problems, because men rule, while they ignore female politicians like Hillary Clinton and Madeline Albright, both of which are some of the worst warmongering politicians in US history. In 2022, there was possibility of a nuclear war that could have befallen the United States with China because of the insistence of crazy Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan.[1]

Patriarchy in the Bible

Because of Eve who gave Adam the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, God gave the authority to men.

Genesis 2: 16: To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

God also said to Adam: Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”[2]

The New testament also confirmed that women should obey their husbands. Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:22-24: 22 Wives, obey your husbands as you obey the Lord. 23 The husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the church people. The church is his body and he saved it. 24 Wives should obey their husbands in everything, just as the church people obey Christ.[3] The Bible also says that Men and Women are equal in dignity and in God eyes, Paul wrote in Galatians 3:28: 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave7 nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.[4]

However God let some women to be leaders such as Deborah.
