However, if we add up the total evil committed by men and women down the centuries, then men come out WAY ahead.
Admittedly, this is largely because men have held the power, and thus had more opportunity to perpetrate evil.
Adam was responsible, as the head of the family, for what happened in the Garden. Ahab was responsible, as King, for allowing his Queen to persecute the righteous.
I am curious what great evil you think Catharine the Great was guilty of, at least when compared to the other (male) absolute monarchs of her time.
Just as Obama is responsible when he orders or permits his administration to do unconstitutional or evil things.
I don’t think men come way out ahead in terms of the amounts of quantity of evil committed. I’m saying that when it all comes out, we’ll all be surprised that just how evil the women were along with the men. You’d think God would have spared a few more of the better women of Sodom and Gomorrah along with Lot’s family, but he didn’t. And we know what happened to Lot’s wife and we know what Lot’s daughters did to Lot when he was drunk! In my job as an RN, you would not believe the instances I run across of the connivance of women when it comes to their family members as well as their attempts to manipulate their stories when it is clear that what is going on with the patient isn’t what the stories are attempting to cover up. (particularly drug and alcohol abuse when a patient goes into DT’s, complicating their treatment plans).
It has been said that the hands that rock the cradles determine the course of nations and empires. Look at who rocks our children’s cradles and look at the state of our nations and world! That should tell you all you need to know regarding the complicity of women regarding the sins of the nations!
There is a reason why Revelations refers to the whore of Babylon as being a woman, mother of harlots. Zechariah 5, the passage I shared with you is the root of that passage in Revelation. What is interesting is that the angels involved in that passage had the faces of women and they were carrying her off like she was a contagion. It suggests that there are certain forms of evil in women that when taken root in the women of a society can destroy that society and that only specially prepared, spiritually empowered women have the means to contain that evil...if we can get enough women to wake up. Why do you think everyone on the left was so horrified regarding Sarah Palin?! Yeah, her kids made mistakes, maybe she has, too but her faith is undeniable...and it sends evil lib men, women, and gays just screaming!(a few freepers, too unfortunately)
There are spiritual issues that men are not equipped well to handle in the way super empowered Christian women can!
