Please read the following and celebrate your union in marriage.
I had a converation with a friend the other day, more an aquaintance really, who asked me what I was doing now that both of the children are in school. When she discovered it involved reading the Bible, she clammed up, her body language changed. She said to me - I've read the Bible - that's why I know I don't agree with it and she walked away. It felt just awful - she has mis-read the Bible - she's a strong woman with her own business and four children. She imagines that God has made her a second class citizen - that her husband should rule over her and that she should exist in all realms - domestic. Women everywhere are finding the message of the gospel polluted by such ideas: ideas that they bring to the text. We need so much education - these fallacies need to be desperately undone so that women can have a relationship with God through his Word because they understand how to read his word as life-giving, so that they understand just how much they are loved by God - that they are co-heirs with men, equal partners in marraige and blessed.
