God Created Mankind For Special Purpose
There is no question that God created mankind with multiple abilities. To prove this statement, all we need to do is look around us at the huge buildings that have been built, at Airplanes that fly across the sky at high speeds, at the ability to travel to outer space, at Automobiles that also travel with comfort and speed throughout our country, just to mention a few accomplishments.
God also created each of us with a variety of abilities and the need to worship. We will worship something and our worship needs to be guided in the correct way, We are given our agency which is the ability to make independent decisions on our own. Herein lies a big problem. We often make the wrong decision.
Recently there has been some Women who have stated that they have not been appreciated for their efforts they have expended in the work of the Church. It is unfortunate that there are some women that feel unappreciated even when they have done a beautiful job, but as usual satan tries to bring people down in their thoughts, and that creates problems for them and others. We have to be careful at all times, especially now, when a small group is involved with a renewed effort to establish Zionic conditions where they are working toward being of one heart and one mind. Most are aware satan will do everything he can to destroy this work, and he is busy stirring up trouble.
As you can see from things mentioned above, mankind is able to accomplish a variety of great things, but God is specific in some things that are required for both women and for men.
First lets read from Corinthians:
1st Corinthians 12:1, -- “Now concerning spiritual things, brethren, I would not have you ignorant”.
Lets go to, Ist Corinthians 14: 33,-- “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints”.
In Verse 34 God says, -- “Let your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to rule; but to be under obedience, as also saith the law.”
In Verse 35, God says, -- “And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is a shame for women to rule in the church”
In Verses 34 and 35 -- God indicates women are not to be Priesthood.
Women are provided from birth with a greater calling, that calling is Motherhood. Motherhood does not require a woman to give birth to children, but rather God provides this specialty to all woman, this gift is greater than Priesthood, as women are given a special love that provides for the care of motherhood. She actually trains boys who later in life may be called to Priesthood. Also consider when you have seen a little girl caring for her little dolly, that is Motherhood showing its true nature.
Genesis 1:29-30, I God, created Man in mine own image, in the image of mine Only Begotten created I him; Male and Female created I them.” (and God said all His creation was good - No Mistakes). Then in Genesis 2: 5,6,7,8,11 God reveals He first created all things spiritually, and in verse 8 God reveals He formed Man from the dust of the ground, and then in verse 11 He states that all things were prepared for the use of man.
In verse 2:28 we read “And I, the Lord God, caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept, and I took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in the stead thereof; and the rib, which I, the Lord God had taken from man, made I a woman, and brought her unto the man”, (for a help meet)
Verse 29, Adam said “She shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.”
Verse 30 provides, Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh”.
The basic responsibilities for Man and Women are different. Man is to be the head of the family to be the bread winner, the protector, and to care for his wife; and be priesthood only when God calls him to a specific office, and a witness of the Lord’s work, Women to are to be a witness of the Lords work and are all called to Motherhood, I personally believe that a higher call than priesthood.
