A: If we misunderstand what the Bible says about gender, then we will misunderstand issues like homosexual behavior, the roles of husbands and wives, and what it means to be male or female.
In Genesis 1:27 we read that God created man male and female—Adam and Eve—and He made males and females different physically and distinct in their roles. Genesis 2:18 makes Eve’s role clear: “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”
Eve was from the bone and flesh of Adam, meaning she is equal in her standing before God and yet distinct from man (Galatians 3:28). But God gave Adam the authority not only to name the animals but also to name his wife, indicating that she does not share equal authority with her husband. In the Bible’s wording, she is his helper.
See why gender roles matter based on the clear teaching of Scripture.
Ladies, you know Eve was the original bad girl of the Bible. She left a legacy of sin and despair that affects our parenting and marriages even today. But in this encouraging DVD, Dr. Georgia Purdom shares another legacy of Eve with a powerful message of hope for women.
