God's View of a Woman | Beyond Evangelical | The Blog of Frank Viola

Thought some of my friends at college may like to have a read of this:

God's View of a Woman | Beyond Evangelical | The Blog of Frank Viola:

God's view of men and women is far bigger than our own. I think often we miss it, we concentrate on Jesus being a carpenter for men, that being a man is all about being good at sport and diy, or being a woman is all about being good at craft.

  1. I appreciated what Frank Viola had to say about women. I think it is very important to correct chauvinistic and false stereotypes! Unfortunately, in his article Mr. Viola actually perpetrates stereotypes that are just as false and damaging about Jews! Your readers should be aware of a great answer to that side of his article, written by a Jewish friend:


    Here is an excerpt:

    "After God had founded the earth, the unfathomable depths of the sea, the gigantic burning stars, sunsets, gentle breezes, puppies, tigers, trees and their fruits, man with his creative faculty, wonder, yearning, capacity to care and feel, and every other good thing in the physical world and said it was very good, then God created as his finale: Woman. In the Israelite mind, she is the crowning achievement of all of God's creative work in the first six days."

    I actually wrote to Mr. Viola about this but he did not approve my comment or respond in any way.
