Why the silence? Why else would he stand by and do nothing except that he wanted the serpent to be right, and he was willing to take a chance on his wife’s life by not interfering with her deadly experiment? Then, when the experiment failed, without hesitation, he threw her under the bus by blaming her for his sin. And yet, Christian leaders continually teach the unscriptural lie, that the first man loved the first woman so much, that he committed a suicide of sorts. A Romeo and Juliet sort of thing. The story goes, that he laid down his life for her—choosing to die with his wife, rather than live without her.
This sort of scriptural confusion about the first man and the first woman, seems to be uniform among complementarian leaders.
We can never know the details, but we can be reasonably certain, because of God’s prophecy [in Genesis 3:16], that beginning with the Fall, and continuing until Jesus comes to earth to establish his Kingdom, the driving force in most men, will be to dominate their wives. And there can be little doubt that the serpent used the first woman’s husband to make her life a living hell on earth. That is why, at least 235 years later, at the birth of her third son (but no doubt after numerous daughters), Eve was so excited to give birth to another son, because she believed this one would be the promised Messiah who would restore all things and deliver her from the curse.
He never said another thing worth repeating.
There is no scriptural testimony that Eve’s husband ever served God with her, after the Fall. In fact, the record shows just the opposite. It was not until hundreds of years later, after the birth of their grandson, 'Enowsh, that people [besides Eve, and possibly some of her daughters with her] began calling on the name of the Lord.
The time is long past for Christians to blindly trust pastors and teachers. Most of the heresies plaguing Christianity today, is taught in mainstream seminaries, Bible colleges, publications, Christian media, and bookstores. the Christian world has literally been flooded with error--through its most trusted sources. Believers must become biblically literate, and vigorously challenge, refute, and refuse to support [with either their money or their physical presence] heresies such as male headship/Redeemer-Adam teaching. Percentages of the tithe money given in faith to entire denominations, is contributed to organizations committed to the over-throw of women. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are donated annually by trusting church members who wish to participate financially in seeing the gospel preached to all the world. But, instead of the lion's share going to missions, a larger percentage of their tithe and offering money is given to organizations that do not major in feeding the poor nor preaching the gospel, but rather focus on the subjection of women to men. This is not the gospel.
Not one penny of God's money should go to support male-headship/Adam-Redeemer teaching. Worthy ministries exist, that preach the gospel, help the poor, and contend for the faith--and do not exalt men over women, or husbands over wives. Have the courage to publicly support these with your prayers, physical attendance, volunteerism, tithes, and offerings. Determine to raise your daughters and sons in environments that place equal value [in both essence and function] on both women and men, boys and girls.
