I widened my eyes seeking differences; I softened my heart accepting changes; I don't recognize the hands of a man; but I can feel the marks of a woman's; I don't know the arms of a man; but I know the warmth of a woman's; I don't recall a man's voice but my drums know the rhythm of a woman's; I never found a man's footstep but I still follow a woman's: I'm not a Lady by choice, but a woman by actions; its not the make-up that makes me glitter; but the golden beauty inner and outer; I am woman raised, woman nurtured, woman brought, woman built! I am a woman in Christ; a woman amongst women; I'm not a leaf that has fallen far from its tree, but I'm a tree that grew from a leaf; I'm not a color that doesn't match; but I'm a color that stands out; I'm not one in a million, but I'm a zillion amongst millions, I'm not a lady by choice; but I'm a woman by actions, I m a woman in Christ, I am a woman amongst women

Western Paper

Women throughout history have been generally looked upon as being the weaker sex, and to be the lesser of the two. The Old Testament and the New Testament gives two different views on how women were viewed in each of their times. Throughout these two, changes to christianity occured, and that is the justification behind the differences.

The Old Testament of the bible gives a description of how women were viewed during that time. It depicts what would now be considered obsurd practices of treating women. For example, women that were not married were not allowed to leave their fathers house, women were viewed mainly for child bearing, and that they were not allowed to appear in public venues. Specific references in the book of Genesis show that women were objectified and often used as sexual objects. After doing some research, the book of Exodus reveals that women were considered property of her father untill she became married, where then, ownership would transfer and she would become property of her new husband. Women were treated unjustly and unfairly during this time, and were regarded as being 'dirty' for being a woman.

The New Testament has somewhat of a mixed view on the equality of women to men, but it certainly gives more credit and justification to women being equal. There are still references in the New Testament to how women are considered unequal to men, but there are also new thoughts and ideas of equality of both sexes. Most blatently put, the book of John states that 'All people, men and women, have the opportunity to become children of god' implying that it was all inclusive, meaning both genders, all races, and all sexual orientations. In the same relation, the book of Galatians quotes 'There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus'.

The bible as a whole has mixed opinions on alot of things, and the standing of women is one of the indescrepencies that is shown. In the Old Testament more than the New Testament, women were objectified and looked down upon. They were viewed as property and as sexual objects. Men were quoted talking about having sex with a women against their will, and it also stated strict restrictions on how a woman should live her life. The New Testament began to shed a little bit more light on the subject, and started giving a little bit more credit and respect to women. Women, as far back as biblical times, have always been thought of as the lesser of the sexes. The contrast is prevalent between the standards of women in the Old and New Testament of the bible.

The arguement arises as to how sexist the bible is. Although I do not agree with the statement that the bible is sexist, I do believe that the way that the bible portrays women is unfair and that it is wrong to objectify women, but the bible ultimately says that God created men and women equal, and that Jesus Christ, the son of God, died for the sins of all people, not just for men.

Over the course of nature, and all the time of human existance on earth, women have be subjected to unfair treatment. The Old Testament gives a more harsh aspect to it, and the New Testament shows a litle bit more respect for women and their place in society. I think that christianity has become corrupt, but in the sense that people are caught up in the congregation aspect rather than the religious aspect of christianity, and are begining to miss the point, to fail to see what the main message in the bible really is.

Jesica's Splendid Grandeur

Can’t seem to shake this feeling I have for this woman. Don’t honestly know what I am supposed to do with this feeling anyway even though it seems like my heart has been here before so many miserable years ago that I can’t even feel an ounce of misery from all those completely loveless, lonesome, wasted, apathetic years all because some incredibly remarkable woman inherently blessed my life by touching my heart with all the beautifully designed essence of the love she has always wanted to have to keep in her heart forevermore. How could I possibly fathom expressing such a significantly heartwarming kind of love when it feels like she is always warming my heart instead to show me how warm her heart already is in the absence of my affections for her presence of love, the world’s best kept secret? Oh how I deeply treasure this woman for the true gift of love she has always had in her heart way before we ever met, and how I feel so guilty of feeling this treasured love in spite of my inexperienced inability to express enough of my love for this woman’s much more advanced ability to love! How this incredibly amazing woman has never been married is a dreadful fate worse than death because she is so spectacularly worthy of such a wonderfully honorable love I wish so much she could passionately embrace one day for the rest of her inspiring life! It feels so amazing how this woman has turned my heart inside out for the first time ever so she could grant me the resilient, awestruck, privileged power to express so many affections silenced from so many years of loneliness and out of so much fear no woman would ever want to hear how she made me feel so loved I never wanted to stop expressing my feelings for her. Because this woman is the first person to completely obliterate all my fear of women, she has taught me so many valuable lessons about love I never dreamed my heart would EVER have the right to learn to feel such beauty of mixed emotions about how incredibly apathetic I used to be for years never meeting a woman I could ever feel confident sharing any of my affections or love with let alone a potential marriage proposal. I’ve seen a lot of women smiling, but there is such a uniquely special magic in the way this woman loves to smile that truly captivates my heart! It’s like looking at pure, indescribable joy. Impeccable embellishing love adorns her life through her smile that abundantly prevails so triumphantly over everything in her life! Love is this woman’s most naturally appealing, talented dowry man could only incessantly hope to passionately adore enough of to offer his emotionally limited source of love first resonated vividly and directly through this woman’s essence of sweet harboring loveliness uniquely privy to her heart. I am so grateful our lives crossed so I could feel like a normal guy full of enormously heartfelt emotions so graciously given to me by this woman I never rightfully deserved so much of this longing to feel towards such a remarkably captivating woman! I continue to fervently weep for all the ways I have drastically underappreciated all of this woman’s vast experienced innate abilities of love’s true beauty of natural creation I have only begun to dream of experiencing the uninhibited, raw expression of a woman’s heart allowing her freely expressed emotions to passionately create my needful desire to love her with the growing adoration of her amazing ability to perceive love to cease all my lamentations for all the times I injured this woman’s emotions so I could finally sense the rudimentary beginnings of a potentially empowering love of my life in all of Jesica’s splendid grandeur!

Her Hidden Treasure

Her flame was only for the women –
Not for us unlucky men;
A weakness lay for feminine way:
To feel an even fairer skin
In silky slide.

Her lips were for the satin love that
Only flows from rising breast;
The creamy tan was not for man
To pull towards a chiselled chest
In weathered hide.

Her hidden treasure down below
Would shy away from macho length
And only rouse upon the blouse
Undone by other sapphic strength –
In time, inside!
