Well, they’ve gone and done it. After the feminists insisted that they be treated like men and be in the armed forces and fight at the front, men have now decided that all woman must register for the draft and be subject to military service thus showing their willingness that women fight for them! Read today’s devotional and consider what God thinks of all this! God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Peter 3:71 Peter 3:7 English Standard Version (ESV)
7 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you[a] of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
I Peter 3:7
“…One thing I saw here I must mention, as being a type of a prevailing evil in Belgium. When there were barges of ironstone to unload, the women carried the heavy baskets upon their backs. If there were coals or bricks to be carried, the women did it; they carried everything; and their lords and masters sat still and seemed to enjoy seeing them at work, and hoped it might do them good, while they themselves were busily engaged in the important occupation of smoking their pipes. When we came to a landing-place, if the rope was to be thrown off so that the steamboat might be secured, there was always a woman to run and seize the rope, and there stood a big-looking fellow to give directions as to how she should do it…. The gospel puts woman where she should be, gives her an honorable position in the house and in the Church, but where women become the votaries of superstition they will soon become the burden bearers of society. Our best feelings revolt at the idea of putting fond, faithful, and affectionate woman to oppressive labor. Our mothers, our sisters, our wives, our daughters are much too honorable in our esteem to be treated otherwise than as dear companions, for whom it shall be our delight to live and labor.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The New Park Street Pulpit VI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1860), p. 366]
“U.S. Marine Capt. Katie Petronio was a dynamo upon graduation from Bowdoin College in 2007. Standing 5 feet 3 inches, she could squat 200 pounds, and she seemed as ready for a combat role as many men were.
“But just five years later, her body had figuratively started crumbling under the stress of service in Iraq and Afghanistan as a combat engineer officer. Her spine had compressed her nerves to the point of causing neuropathy. Her thigh muscles started to atrophy. She lost 17 pounds and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, which led to infertility. The experience prompted her to write a 2012 article for the Marine Corps Gazette. Its title: ‘Get Over It! We Are Not All Created Equal.’…
“Army statistics show that women are injured at twice the rate of men in combat training, and these injuries are mainly musculoskeletal in nature…. Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, points to Marine Corps tests of infantry trainees in which women were injured at six times the rate of men. ‘Not a single study has shown that training can overcome significant load-carriage and endurance gaps between men and women,’ she wrote in a September 2015 memo to Navy secretary Ray Mabus.”
