So I recently came across an objection to the traditional sanctity of marriage, as defined by Biblical standards. And upon responding too woman’s original objection that God did not create marriage that marriage existed long before god, I received a response that I have never heard before. I was hoping to get some more insight into this particular worldview.
This person argued that God did not create anything, that he actually corrupted the creation of the sacred mother. That creation lies in the body of the woman, and therefore the corruption of that power by men is evil. That God sought to take control of creation himself, using the weakness of men to take power for himself. She continued on with abuses done in the name of God, and the corruption of what was actually sacred has all been done for his “glory.” Also, she suggested that now, what we are currently seeing is the rejection of his (God’s) control, and the return to what was actually sacred: women being the original creators and ultimate powers in the universe. She stated that there was no sanctity in what God created at all, and that the enslavement of women, the rejection of all other forms of worship, the murder of innocents all for his glory shows him to be nothing more than a pathetic, jealous god. And she ended her statement with Yahweh being a fraud.
She certainly unpacked a lot of baggage in that statement, and I certainly have thoughts that address each individual point she made, but what I’m hoping to do is get a better, clearer picture of where this worldview comes from originally. I’m not looking to get into a she said-she said back and forth, but I am certainly wishing to put a pebble in her shoe, perhaps giving her a more accurate view of the truth of God and Christ. However, I do not even know what to focus on since so much was unloaded.
Any information on the more feminine focused world-views, how to proceed with a loaded argument like this, and how to steer the conversation back to the truth of the Word would be helpful. I realize this is a lot, but it’s a relatively new introduction to this Biblical objection for me.
Thank you all so much!
For God’s Glory,
