#113 Seven Biblical Things About Men and Women
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and thirteen of this series, Seven Biblical Things About Men and Women.
There is no controversy in the Bible about the numbers of genders, male and female. Throughout history mankind has in the imagination of his own mind stood against the Bible. The Bible declares them male and female, and God defines their shared roles on earth. They are to be fruitful and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the lower animals.
Seven Biblical Things About Men and Women:
- Male and female are created in God’s image.
- Male and female were created by God as two genders, for two roles, to procreate and subdue the earth.
- Male and female were blessed together, and this blessing is an enablement for its two roles, but this enablement can only be accomplished as male and female.
- Male and female are one in Jesus Christ.
- Male and female are members of the body of Christ.
- Male and female were created from different substance in order that the female could be created for man. The female is not independent of the male, and a man is born of woman. Indicating again their shared roles.
- Jesus Christ states that He agrees that God made only two genders for the role of husband and wife to join as a family unit for procreation.
The truth of the Bible is seen in the fulfillment of these roles. Without the two genders, male and female, there is no mankind and to argue the contrary is to be foolish. God calls for the foolish to put their hand over their mouth.
Pr 30:32 If you have been foolish, exalting yourself, or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth.
When righteous lips speak right it is a delight to God.
Pr 16:13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves him who speaks what is right.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Ge 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Ge 5:2 Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.
Ge 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Ga 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Ga 3:29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.
1 Co 11:8 For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. 1 Co 11:9 Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man…1 Co 11:11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; 1 Co 11:12 for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God.
Mk 10:6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ Mk 10:7 ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, Mk 10:8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. Mk 10:9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
