You may be right about this post being on feminism but it just might not be what you are expecting. . . Happy Reading!
Being a girl-child made me ask a lot of questions on purpose and what is expected of who I am and so far, identifying myself with the purpose of creation has shed some light and these I’ll like to share (Just take it as another side to the coin of identity).
Just like every manufacturer, God always has a purpose for his creations. Before a manufacturer makes a product, a problem must have been identified and how it could be solve and this becomes the basis for the design of the product. Likewise, the creator had clear and specific intentions for Man (male-man and female-man). Time out here; Man doesn’t refer to male-man only, it is used in general reference to humankind. (A woman is simply a man with a womb) Oops! You just read that, well, I’m talking from the spiritual perspective. Man-male-man and female-man came from the same source; same manufacturer; they were created in the image and likeness of God.
God is a spirit and if man was created in his likeness then it means that the core of human consciousness is God, therefore, both man and woman have a moral compass; A woman, like a man, can write a law, reflect on actions thought to be right or wrong, feel guilty,. . ., all of which confirm the God-consciousness. Basically, the unique characteristics of humans are the same for both sexes except for their physical and emotional makeup but no gender difference at the core of their existence (Still refering to the spirit-man).
Looks long enough, to be continued in the next post.
