Men and Women in Proper Order (21 of 30)
Series: THE BOOK OF I CORINTHIANS
I Corinthians 11:1-16
January 5, 2005
1. This evening we will discuss God's proper order for
men and women. Believe it or not, God does have a divinely orchestrated place for both men and women. There is a hierarchy of order and when followed according to His plan, men and women are a compliment to one another, not in competition with one another. Our society today is making every attempt to remove the male as the dominant figure and place women at odds with men.
a. Women are now being addressed as "Ms." rather
than Mrs. or Miss...it is the feminist independence movement. Such likes as Eleanor Smeal and Gloria Steinam bolstered the feminist movement in the 70's and 80's and made popular the "Ms. Magazine," which was first published in 1971. I pulled the Ms. Magazine up on the web, and at the top of the first page it reads; "Start Your Own Feminist Conspiracy." And that's what we have today--a conspiracy to remove order in the home and destroy the family.
2. Many women no longer want the man to open a door
for them or to pay for their dinner or to bring them flowers. More and more you see the wife driving the car and the husband sitting in the passenger's seat. I've told my wife, as long as I am able to crawl into the car, I'll do the driving. And by the way, what do you think about these wimpy men who let their wives do the driving? I don't want you to get the idea I am against women drivers. I think if you don't like the way women drive, you ought to stay off the sidewalks.
3. I want to give you three points to our outline:
I. God's Divine Order
II. Man's Godly Image
III. Woman's Exalted Glory
I. GOD'S DIVINE ORDER
(Vs. 3), "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."
A. The head of every man is Christ
