My friend go back and read again: there are two DIFFERENT creation stories in the bible. One says man and woman were created at same time (which is the only thing that makes sense). It says right there that He called them "man". Can u read?? So when it talks of man it means both man and woman!

GENESIS ONE:
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.

GENESIS 5:
When God created mankind, he made them in the likeness of God.(C) 2 He created them(D) male and female(E) and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind”[a] when they were created.

I appreciate your attempt to explain that God had both male and female in mind from the beginning. God cannot be caught by surprise, since he knows all things. However, the knowledge of God in the Bible was progressive, hence why we see people in the old testament wrongly attribute certain things to God. However, in Christ we have God's perfect revelation. The New Testament explains and clarifies the old.

Yes, God created male and female and that was His intention at the beginning as evident in Genesis. So we are fine with that.

However Apostle Paul let's us know that:

1Co 11:8-9 KJV 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

I don't think there is an argument here. Companionship is necessary for both; man wasn't intended to be alone and the woman was created for man. Both need companionship.

Now he goes to insults. Quite predictable.
Not only is it stated CLEARLY - it is the ONLY thing that makes sense!
Ok, use your own COMMON SENSE! It is God that gave it to you. Here's what I posted earlier:

My friend Adam couldn't have been created a second before Eve. He was given a penis; where was that supposed to go?? Look throughout nature - a positive can't exist without concurrent existence of a negative. And see your non sequitur - God who knows everything suddenly REALISED he made a mistake - and the type of mistake that even a child won't make!
Well. Sorry for the insult.
Meanwhile that's the biblical problem if we are to be frank about its ambiguousness. It's same reason scholars and critical thinkers jettison the Bible as the best account of creation...
.
If something as simple as creation order can't be agreed upon. Then the Bible has some hole or people are just mischievous... But here, I will go with both....
Cos Gen2 is without doubt a chronological account.....other verse is more like statement made in retrospect..which is subject to varying interpretation...but I go with Gen2

Nahh. It's not because women see marriage as an achievement in itself.

Yes, many women were raised to aspire to marriage, especially in this generation. But beyond that women are, by nature, emotional and big on relationships of any kind.

Who do you see writing epistles about their friends and siblings on their birthdays? Women.

Who dances the most when a child gains an admission, graduates, gets a new job? Women.

Who is more involved in the family affairs, nuclear and extended? Women.

Who cares more about social activities that bring people together? Women.

It's just nature.

Remember that St. Paul was a human being and that there are many other things he wrote that never made it into the Bible. There are many creation myths. Paul, as a Jew, was of course extrapolating from a popular and accepted Jewish myth. But a myth that, upon reflection, you'd realize makes no sense

The Bible is spiritually discerned and interpreted based on divine revelation which people not in the faith describe as mysticism , the faith is not religion , it is not based on human deductive logic but on the immutable power of God's will which can be found in his word

Kindly Ignore the First Commenter Please

And yes,you answered yourself in your Post. Marriage is a Big achievement for women because After their Father and Boyfriends are done taking care of them,it is now Their husband's turn,which will hopefully give them male kids who will then Continue the process when the Husband Must have probably been milked dry by the Woman

I don't understand people who insist that everything in the bible is factually and historically perfectly true. The Bible obviously contains myths. Doesn't take away from the fact that it is the greatest of books. Take someone like St. Paul, he was HUMAN and I'm sure if he were still around would have changed his mind about some of the things he wrote. And I'm sure there are many things he wrote that never made it into the bible

Paul was filled with the anointing of the holy Spirit and operating above logic with divine wisdom which non-believers cannot deduce or comprehend

Well if the bible says that God created a positive charge with a penis, then later realised He made a mistake - that there should have also been a negative charge with a hole for the penis to go into. You have a right to use your God-given common sense to say the story makes no sense

As a believer you must discern when you are working with the guidance of the holy Spirit or Operating with your intuition / logic they are not the same thing

Common sense is antithetical to divine wisdom, logic is inferior to God's wisdom which is more in-depth than any man made analysis, these is not dogmatism but believing by spiritually induced faith in the power of divinity in God

Women celebrate relationship more because of the ticking time clock if not we would be relaxed just like men.Once a girl hits 28 everyone start reminding her menopause is approaching.Menopause is the game changer

[quote author=NiRfreak post=100591760]
Women weren't made to be a loner or an island. They were created with relationship in mind even before they were fashioned.
.
Remember Eve was formed to come and be joined to Adam. It seems without man in the picture, they would have no lofty purpose, and they wouldn't have been formed. But men were formed without women in the initial plan.
.
So when a woman finally get joined to a man in marriage, her divine purpose seems to be fulfilled cos that was the initial plan - to be joined to a man and be his helper.
.
But on the other hand, men weren't created to be joined to a woman. Men were created into a purpose without woman in the picture. The primary purpose was to be in charge of the universe, dominate it and fashion out its destiny.

Meanwhile, due to boredom that comes after some deal of hardwork, necessity for leisure now arises, prompting the need to create women, as a companion when bored, an object of pleasure and distraction away from the hard-work inherent in man's purpose.
Women are created for relationship in simple terms. It's their highest goal and ideal that they can't but celebrate with a heart of victory.[/q okuote]

The carnal mind can't have understanding on the workings of divinity, he can't know them because they are spiritually discerned, logic and common sense are all limited thinking and makes non-believers interprete the Bible at facial values based on it's letters, but people of the faith work with the spiritual meaning of the letters not the letters directly, these is above deductive logic and reasoning

It is not about God at all. There are many creation myths. Some make sense, some don't. The one about God forgetting to create woman is absurd. Luckily our same Bible also says in two places that man and woman were created same exact time - the only thing that makes sense!

We can't question God's logic for he his God and you are a mere mortal, it is folly to take these path , Eve was intended to support Adam not because God made a mistake or forgot but rather because he wanted Adam not to be alone in the garden and gave him a pair mate, that's not an error but a decision made by God for his purpose to Adam

You obviously haven't read the Adam/Eve story. God created Adam with a penis to be all by himself. Then he realized He made a mistake! That He should have created woman! Then the same God that created the entire universe by just His words now became a sculptor. He could not create Eve by just his words!

Sir/Madam, are you a believer? Just need to know first.

God did not make a mistake. God does not make mistakes.

As I said earlier, the revelation of God is progressive in the old testament. The old testament is a shadow of the reality. For example, God does not do evil. He has never and will never, but you see evil done attributed to God in the old testament.
Christ is the interpretation of the scriptures. You cannot fully understand unless you first know Christ and see Him through the scriptures.

And there are no myths in the Bible. There are however metaphors in certain places.
