Why I’m Not For Girl Power

I don’t believe in girl-power.  I don’t believe woman/girls are any better than men.  Now, I’m not saying men are better than woman.  I’m saying we have a huge problem in the world when little girls who don’t know better are walking around with tee-shirts that say, “Girls rule, boys drool.”

Girls, boys do not drool.  Men are very intelligent, and guess what?  They were made by God, too.  Not only were they made by God, they were made first!

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.–Genesis 2:7

So what about women?  If guys were made first…What about women?

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.–Genesis 2:22

Fifteen verses later, God makes the woman.  God waited to make a woman until man saw that he needed her.  We weren’t just thrown into the equation, girls, we were needed!  But we weren’t needed to gripe and complain, or steal the power from men, we were created to:

but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.–Genesis 2:21b

We were created to help men!

Okay, okay, so we have both girl and boy power, all right?  We’re equal.  Don’t worry about it, Amie!  What’s the big deal?

The big deal is that girls are actually humans, and humans are actually sinners.  And not only are girls sinners, men are sinners too.  What are we told about sinners in the Bible?

Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)–Ephesians 2:5

If we’re dead, what power do we have?  Dead men can’t do nothing, right?  So what power do we have?  None, unless it’s demonic.  So is there really girl power?  No.  There’s no girl power, and there’s no guy power.

Where does the strength come from then?

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.–Psalm 18:2

It isn’t our power, or our strength.  It’s the power of God and Christ Jesus through us.  Alone, we are as dead men (and women) walking blindly through the darkness.

But what if we have feminine strength?  Just leave God out of this issue for once.  Sure, we might have some strength, but what about men?  Why can’t the power be equal?  Why can’t we listen to what our forefathers of this country said?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Yes, when it says men, it does mean women.  Have you ever studied English…or Latin?  One of the rules is that if you’re talking to both men and women, you use the masculine form of the word.

But that isn’t fair!

Of course it isn’t fair!  God doesn’t support fairness.  I’m sorry to break it to you folks, but God doesn’t offer fairness, He offers justice and mercy.  Would you rather fairness, or mercy?

I for one, know my choice.  I can’t leave God out of this issue.  The founding fathers couldn’t leave God out of this issue.  You can’t leave God and Christ Jesus out of your life or this issue.  It won’t work.

Men and women are equal in the sight of God.  He created them both, and they both are made in His image.  (Genesis 1:27)  If we live in a Godless culture, sooner or later the curse on Eve will take place.  (Genesis 3:16)  In fact, I can see it happening today in our culture.

Now is the time for repentance and prayer.  Now is the time to pick up our Bibles and search them for truth.  I’m not expecting you to accept all I have said in this post.  Instead, I’m expecting you to go pick up your Bible off the shelf and figure this issue out for yourself.

Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.

    This is so true Amie!! While I believe that both men and women (boys and girls) were both created equal, unfortunately many people don’t! Thank you for posting this!

    Amen! Most girls now of days are all for ‘girl power’, and how they don’t need men to help them at all and how women are better then men. It’s just not right!

    This was awesome, Amie!! What’s funny is, at the Ladies Bible Study yesterday at our church, this was the exact topic! And it was sooo good, and a lot like what you said up there! Yes, girls and boys are both important, and yes, both are made in the image of God, but God created man to rule over female (who cares if that’s not “fair” or not) because, God wanted us to see how He rules over us, the bride, the church!!!

    Amen! So true! We are NOT better than men. We were created to help men, but because of our pride and haughtiness we bring them down. How sad that the devil has deceived so many girls in this way!
    It’s important to note that men are supposed to protect women especially because… They’re weaker than men!!!
    Hot topic, great post!

    i think that its okay for girl to do what some boys can’t without the girl.like…. World war two when all the girls had to make planes. so if it weren’t for girls we would probably had have to surrender. But still yes, I believe in every thing you said in your post.
