There have been heretical mis-attempts to Scripturally justify the selection and appointment of the inferior-gender, weaker-sex [woman] Sarah Palin as candidate for Vice-President of the United States.
Certain false-religion, feminist-sexist-supportive-and-misminded subversives have mis-applied the stories of Deborah and Esther in the Old Testament, plus the virgin Mary, Anna, Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna, Mary of Clopas, Dorcas, etc. in the New Testament, to allegedly mean that the Lord's will and intention for Sarah Palin is to not only become the second most powerful person in United States Government, but become a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
That, of course, nonconditionally contradicts (no matter what the doctrines-of-demons excuses and irrationalizations) such non-deniable and most-certainly applicable Bible references as:
Gen 3:16 = To the woman he said, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."
[So The precedent for all present and future authority pertaining to gender is thereby set]
Lev 27:5 = If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
Lev 27:6 = If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver.
Lev 27:7 = And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
[Though those instructions are given to those within the Old-Testament Hebrew theocracy, of which Moses the male was the human equivalent of a prime minister or president or king, such also apply to other forms of government, such as a parliamentary republic, monarchy, democracy, facism, nazism, communism, socialism, totalitarianism - whether or not there is "separation of church and state" and whether or not the things of Caesar ultimately belong to God or instead belong only to Caesar]
Eccl 7:27 = Behold, this is what I found, says the Preacher, adding one thing to another to find the sum,
Eccl 7:28 = which my mind has sought repeatedly, but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
[Which of the twelve apostles of Christ Jesus were women? Which books of the entire 66-book HOLY BIBLE were written by women? Which woman is now pictured on a $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $1,000 or $10,000 dollar bill? Which of the Founding Fathers were women? Which of Hitler's top henchmen were women? Which of the Roman emporers were women? Did Bloody Mary do anyone any good to the daffy brits who drive on the wrong side of the road and pervertedly wear shortened-skirted hairy-legs-baring kilts (see Ecclesiastes 10:2 RSV and Luke 8:27)? Did Golda Meir unconfuse the Israelis and eradicate the "palestinian" problem?]
Song 2:14 = O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is attractive.
[Men like Solomon do not want to be sexually harassed nor erotically aroused by seeing the arrogant impudent face of some not-married-to-themselves sexist woman newscaster, anchor, cop, judge, nor politician flapping her irritatingly chauvenistic jaws from the hole beneath her nose]
Isa 3:12 My people: children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, your leaders mislead you, and confuse the course of your paths.
[Isaiah here was not limiting his lament to "those inside the church" but rather to most every citizen of his country and nation as a whole. Clearly he was neither advocating that bratty shrieking selfish children should noise-harass others with childish mischief in public, nor advocating that sexually-harassing women be allowed in charge as government officials to exercise authority over men]
Nahum 3:13 = Behold, your troops are women in your midst. The gates of your land are wide open to your foes; fire has devoured your bars.
[The above reference clearly does not merely apply only "to those in the church." Who ever heard of armed military combat soldiers being restricted to being "in the church?"]
1Cor 11:3 = But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
[Notice that the term every [man]. The term is NOT limited to merely those inside "the church," - whatever "the church" means]
1Cor 14:34 = the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not allowed to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says..
["as even THE LAW says"]
Gal 3:28 = There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
[That verse is among many others which, as Saint Peter would state in Second Peter 3:16, certain deviates and heretics twist to their own destruction, and have been used by false prophets in sheep's clothing to infer that women are supposedly equal to and with men in not only ability but positional competition.
Though Scripture verses do not contradict each other, many are paradoxical with each other, and must be rightly interpreted by spiritual men who truly have the Spirit.
A few other Bible verses would initially and humanly seem impossible and even ridiculous without spiritual discretion and understanding. For example, when Solomon stated in Ecclesiastes 11:7 that "it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun," such is true (unless one stares into it for several hours and goes blind); when Saint Paul stated in Colossians 3:3 that "you have died," when was your date of death recorded by the County or State Licensed Medical Examiner, what casket where you reposing within, where the funeral home where your lifeless corpse temporarily was, and where is the graveyard your body in casket was buried in? He also stated in Philippians 4:13 that "I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me" (including jumping over the Moon without a rocket or out of a high-flying commercial jet without a parachute over farmland and not expect to be crushed upon impact)?
[The secret to spiritually-discerning sensibility and understanding pertaining to the above examples are the key words: in Christ! If a person is truly "in Christ," Christ through His Holy Spirit will not cause that person to want, say, nor do anything against Christ's holy and perfect will regarding applications of any claimed Scripture verse.
While we are on the subject, most disagreements, misunderstandings, bickerings, and heresies among those inside various religions, sectarian factions, and cultic denominations are because of concocting, embracing, and promoting MIS-translated verses of sundry English-worded bibles. Also causing wicked and needless dissension and division is a deviant and demented failure on the part of some to take the WHOLE counsel of God within the TOTALITY of the COMPLETE canonical 66-book Holy Bible. In other words, troublemakers impose disruption when they one-sidedly base their doctrine on one particular verse and then either ignorantly or deliberately ignore and disregard balancing verses stating the non-contradictory but vital other side of a paradox resolvable only in Christ Jesus Himself].
Even the Bible itself obviously and frequently differentiates plain distinctions between Jew and Greek, slave and free, male and female in many other verses of Scripture.
The "one in Christ Jesus" only and obviously applies to certain attributes and circumstances, such as all humans have souls and moral responsibilities and unity of mind (though not of one actual physical body) in Christ Jesus. It does NOT imply equality in terms of patriarchal authority pertaining to non-identical male and female gender]
1Tim 2:12 = I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
1Tim 2:14 = and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
[What part of "NO" woman might we not understand, the "N" or the "O?" Note the reference to the primal ancestors of all humanity (i.e. Adam and Eve) are alluded to, going way beyond the limited scope of "those in the church." Again, keep in mind that we are not restricting nor quaranteening ourselves with any "separation of church and state" presumptions, legally or not, regardless of pussywimps who purport that "our kingdom is not of this world," and thus we should retreat out of it and hide, unlike Saint Paul who intimately interacted with Roman soldiers and government, as did Jesus Christ]
1Peter 3:7 = Likewise you husbands, live considerately with your wives, bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker gender, being that you are joint heirs of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered.
When King Ahasuerus told Esther that he would grant her "up to half of his kingdom," Persian law did not mandate that she would rule over the people therein, but merely have ownership and perhaps some aspects of caretakership of the property. Ahasuerus, of course, retained over 50% possession, and could depose her at any time as he did against Queen Vashti for feminist-sexist insubordination or whatever.
Judges chapter 4 tells of a judge Deborah who [supposedly] "ruled" but only as an advisor or consultant in a certain sense because pussywimp Barak would not go to war without her......and God allowed such, even though obviously it was not His stated intention and will for woman-temporarily-in-leadership to occur; nor war hero Jephthah to murder his own daughter (see Judges chapter 11) which is something even Abraham came close to doing against his only son Isaac; nor His will for Samson to consort with the harlot of Gaza plus Delilah and have his eyes put out; nor His will for David to commit adultery and conspiracy to murder concerning Bathsheba.
Whatever significantly-good GOP platform stances that Sarah Palin presumably has, compared to weasel-worded pro-choice (pro-abortion?) and pro-human-rights (pro-homopervert?) democrat-platform platitudes, does not abrogate nor override anti-women-in-charge-of-the-nation Scripture verses cited above!
She might or might not contribute to some good with her questionable political activism and partial immodesty so far, but she is SCRIPTURALLY not qualified to be our VP nor Presidential leader and Commander-in-Chief.
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
[Ah, here "the church" is indeed mentioned, but Christ is not only the head of the church, but instead King of kings and Lord of lords. Such King and Lord is also overall head of women, and therefore His patriarchal and males-in-government-authority charge is likewise in effect over them]
Those pseudo(?)-"christians" who (like Peter lying about himself never going to deny the Lord, and then actually denying Christ to make it worse) have as their pro-Palin objective fear of satanic humanity and NOT fear of God within themselves, causing them to try to [anti-Scripturally] set up a purported "prophetess" in government authority because of the wicked spirit of feminist sexism infesting them.
