How Come Women Are Told To Wait On The Lord For A Godly Man, But Men Are Praised For Doing The Opposite?
Reader, I read a very interesting Facebook post by Dr. Alexis Carlion Maston. She makes a good argument about the double standard for men and women in the church. Christian women, are told to marry a Godly man but then you have these preachers, worship leaders out here, marrying entertainers who songs, movies, etc. don't represent a woman of Godly character. It does leave a lot of women feeling slighted because it's like you can't win even when you're doing the "right" thing.
I too was a little shocked when I found out Israel Houghton was dating Adrienne but didn't give it a whole lot of thought. The point is most women in the church house are told to wait for a Godly man to find her but while they are in the church waiting, the men of God are looking at everyone but them. As she said, it's like a slap in the face.
I honestly don't think the intent here was to be judgemental. I feel what she was saying and I have been wondering the same thing. And no, we don't know the whole story, but why does this seem to be happening more and more? Can we talk about it? This topic may only appeal to singles and that's really okay. Should Christian men be held to the same standard as Christian women when it comes to a mate? Is it different for them?
