Does chronological creation order indicate authority? Let’s take a look at the order of things, then!
Light and Darkness
Water, Dry land and plants
Sun, moon and stars
Birds, insects and fish
Animals and Humans (Man, then Woman)
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.”
God created humans to rule over, to have authority over, the rest of creation. Humans were created after the rest of creation. We could follow the logic of the entire created order and say that the principle God established is the “Last Shall Be First.” (Think of Jacob, Joseph and David) So…
Women Rule! I jest.
Back tomorrow to drift into the temptation.
