The Daughters of Eve Fight Back
There is a common assumption in the secular Western world today that Christianity, and the Bible in particular, are bad for women - that the pictures of women are essentially oppressive and degrading and that we we can't reconcile it with a modern view of women's rights and equality unless you hide certain parts of the Bible away.
The high view of women that the Scriptures actually repeatedly present can be easily missed. In Exodus 1 we encounter a strong argument in support of this statement as we consider the text under two main points:
- The fear of the Lord triumphs over failure.
- The fear of the Lord triumphs of faithlessness.
