This is just a brief list of how women are treated in the bible. Of course there are scriptures that contradict a lot of them. I’m not going to list them all, I’d be here all day.
A woman is responsible for the origin of sin. -Genesis 3:6
A woman can be hated upon by the very men they are forced to marry – after sex. The man can lie and claim she’s not a virgin and can have her killed [stoned to death at the father's doorstep] if the father of the wife cannot prove she’s a virgin. -Deuteronomy 22:13
Men come to another man’s house looking for a man. What does the man of the house do? No, he doesn’t turn over the man in question. He offers them their virgin daughter and wife. -Judges 19:24
A woman is supposed to just go with their captive and then be discarded as trash if the captive doesn’t like her. Oh, if you do like her, she must shave her head, mourn her father and mother for an entire month after living with said captive, then get married. -Deuteronomy 21:11-13
A woman can be sold into slavery and become a servant; so can a man. The only difference is a man can eventually go free. -Exodus 21:7
A virgin woman has to cry out loud enough while being raped, otherwise she’s a stoned dead woman. -Deuteronomy 22:23
Now, a lot of people will argue this as rape. Let me explain further before another troglodyte come along and insult me.
Let me repeat myself:
Deuteronomy 22: 28-29 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives
This may classify as rape, I would say so if you read the context but some people say no. Deuteronomy 22: 23-24 If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death—the young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from among you
Deuteronomy 20:10-14 As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the lord your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the lord your God has given you.
- Let me continue by listing other rapes in the bible.
2 Samuel 12:11-18 is CRAZY. God himself brings the completely innocent rape victims to the rapist. And then he kills an innocent child! I wonder where the idea of a god that loves peace comes from when referring to the bible
“This is what the LORD says: ‘Out of your own household I am going to bring evil on you. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will sleep with your wives in broad daylight. 12 You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.’ 13 Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.” Nathan replied, “The LORD has taken away your sin. You are not going to die. 14 But because by doing this you have shown utter contempt for the LORD, the son born to you will die.” 15 After Nathan had gone home, the LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife had borne to David, and he became ill. 16 David pleaded with God for the child. He fasted and spent the nights lying in sackcloth on the ground. 17 The elders of his household stood beside him to get him up from the ground, but he refused, and he would not eat any food with them. 18 On the seventh day the child died.
Genesis 19: In Sodom and Gomorrah men were having relations with other men, Lot orders them to rape his daughters instead of having homosexual relations. God tells Lot to leave the city so he can destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and does so burning everything in it including women and children.
If a woman gives birth to a son, she is impure for 6 days. While if she were to give birth to a daughter. It’s an entire two weeks. Leviticus 12: 2-5
Women are naturally supposed to provide men with sex. That is their natural use. -Romans 1
Women and children fleeing and hiding from an invasion. Nothing wrong with that, right? A woman drops a ‘milestone’ on a soldiers head, but it doesn’t kill him. What does he say to his compatriots? Kill me with your sword so you can say a woman did it. -Judges 9:50-54
This contradicts Genesis 1:28 as well as other scriptures.
A woman is not allowed to speak in church. Why is it that they reject this part of the bible and become pastors anyway? -1 Corinthians 14:34-35
A woman cannot teach a goddamned thing; nor to have authority. They are told to be quiet. -1 Timothy 3:2
Blessed be the God who has not created me a heathen, a slave or a woman.
