I offer the following language study for those who would like a better understanding of the Hebrew meaning (understanding) of the often miss understood and misused passage of Deuteronomy 22:5
The bottom line is simply this:
Religious men fear strong women. A Proverbs 8 woman is not experienced by men as the blessing she is, but as a threat, as competition for leadership (read, dominance).Today, In the middle east, this fear of women has increased into a full paranoia. This is evidenced by the fact that it takes two or more men to beat a woman in public if she is not escorted by a male member of her household. Since the beating up of women is still outlawed here in the west, we have to settle for spiritual intimidation, i.e. you are going to hell if you fail to meet the standards edict of the local pastor, which changes from pastor to pastor.
Biblical standards are seldom questioned or ignored, however, rules and regulations of men are most often challenged by the saints. The reasons are self evident. Biblical standards support one's liberty in the Spirit of God and are generally embraced by the love one has for their God. On the other hand, man's standards are controlling and restrictive and are enforced by indoctrination, intimidation, and implied (unearned) guilt.
Yet, even with all of this, it does not mean that women are all guiltless in the purpose of their dress, actions and speach. While we hear so much about the weakness of men who fall into moral bankruptcy - remember, there is usually a woman involved too!
Bottom line: Let's all take care and consider the motives for what we say and do, and take responsibility for the results of our actions.
I have been thinking about your comments. Absolutly wonderful!
When Adam committed the first sin (yes, it was Adam because he was a witness to the events between Eve and the serpent) and he did not exercise his authority to stop Eve from taking the 'fruit', he failed in his responsibility to rule effectively over God's creation, as he was instructed to. However, after his failure, what did he do when confronted by God? He scapegoated Eve - it was that woman YOU gave me - she did it!
Today, men still will not take responsibility for their actions (or inaction) and they continue to set all kids of standards (rules) for women, so they don't have to confront and take responsibility their own failings and weakness. Even so, this assumes that the ladies will take the scriptures seriously and dress modestly, and not in a manner designed to entice men into moral sin. When one tempts another into sin, they are doing the devil's work and are engaged in sin themselves, and they are not guiltless before God.
Yet, with all of these words it is the husband/father who has been set as the head of the family, not the pastor or some other spiritual leader. But, where is the family today? It is all but destroyed.
I would suggest that there three things that contribute to the death of the biblical family. (1) Children allowed to engage in sex outside of marriage without having any consequences (e.g. abortion), (2) Girls are encouraged to have babies - actually being paid to have them (increased welfare payments), while the baby's father is often allowed to escape any responsibility for his own child. and (3) spiritual leaders (pastors and their wives) who have set themselves up as acting parents over the men and women of a congregation including the family's children. That is not biblical. So, many of our own spiritual leaders are guilty of abetting in the destruction of the family unit.
As I am noted for saying: There are no stand alone verses in the Bible. The scriptures are a fully integrated revelation of God. As a result, there are no individual, stand alone issues or doctrines - everything impacts and influences everything else. This truism is reflected in our everyday lives. Everything that effects one part of our body, mind, spirit will have an effect on another part of our body, spirit or mind, and so it goes until our entire being is involved. Cut off a toe to test the theory. Lose a loved one and go to work and see how well you perform your job. Or,lose your job, get robed, get the flue, etc.You get the picture. So teachers of the word of God, start teaching the responsibility of individuals to themselves and to others. What it means and what is required of mothers and fathers, husbands and wives. Teach accountability to ones self, family, the body of Christ, and to Christ Himself. Teach the assembly their individual and collective responsibility to our God, rather than what we can get out of Him. To be servants rather than consumers.
It is past time for everyone to start working out their own salvation with fear and trembling.
