It's funny, yes it tis. The otherday I wrote, "God loves women". I also added the too, because God said I should. I didn't really want to add the too [also]. Now, I am so happy I did obey God, because johnnyb came after me with his blog. So, praise God, always. He lives and talks and He knows.

Usually, that question would seem politically incorrect, but who was it in Luke 7:38, John 12:7 and 8 that Jesus defended?

Who more easily recognized Messiah at the well and noticed the baptism that we need (living water baptism)?

Christianity Today magazine mentioned that Christianity is sometimes characterized as feminine because the goal is to be more peaceful (and gentle) towards our fellow human being while admiring "good and right and true" ("light", Ephesians 5:8) and being genuinely humble to the creator.

Women understand more easily the SENTIMENT (figurative tears of sorrow, John 7:38) and can show ADORATION (Luke 7:38).

For God chose the weak to shame the strong.

There does seem to be more women who are willing to follow the LORD, in comparison to the amount of men. If this is true, then, it is sad. NOT because of the women, but, because GOD created both men and women, in HIS Image, and HE loves them both dearly. Even if women are indeed "more spiritual" than men, it does not have to be that way. I suppose it may be in part, because, men have a harder time with some forms of Pride. Nevertheless, these men can be spiritually strong, as well, and be redeemed in the LORD, for the Scriptures say "...with GOD, all things are possible."

God loves Women!!!!Too

Yes, women are definitely more spiritual than men. God bless all you ladies!
---JohnnyB on 3/9/09




There are good men out there, but SOME men use the Bible as a tool STILL to oppress women. The Bible was written at a time of much hatred towards women. Prior to that, religions were female-oriented and focused on honoring women as "life givers." When religions became patriarchal, men tried to take this power and make men the "life givers" all the while demeaning women. It was womb envy, that men don't do something as profound, pure as give birth.Not saying all men suffer from an inferiority complex, but sexist men do. I know that the Bible was written by men and that certain books were chosen while others conveniently deleted. Women are hated because women do have a special power and men try to compensate.
---Cara on 3/9/09


no I do not think women are more spritual then men, perhaps women worship in a more open way then men, but I think it's pretty 50 50

Why do you think God chose 'the tree of the knowledge of good and evil'? Doesn't he want us to have free will, and choose good over evil?
---deb on 4/3/08


Antonio, Adam was right there with her when she partook of the fruit. If he had exercised his God-given dominion, that serpent would have been under his feet instead of elevated in the eyes of his wife. It was his place to protect her from the deceiver. Eve may have been deceived but Adam was the one man through whom sin came.
---Linda on 4/1/08


I don't believe so. It's just that women are usually more sensitive than men because of how we are made and raised. Women crave relationships so it's easier to go after God. Men are raised to be strong and not show weakness. It sometimes feels weak to need someone even if its God.
---melann on 3/27/08




..."at the cost of their souls"??? That's being a little hard on women, don't you think? What about the men who enabled them and abandoned their own responsibility of leadership? If you are referring to "Women's Liberation" conspiracy by Rockefeller and the intelligence agencies to destroy the family, look up Ayn Rand and Bella Dodd), men abandoned their leadership position. Do you feel women should be crucified? Do you feel that anyone should? Why do you have a wish to crucify anyone?
---greg on 3/27/08


I thing Eve kinda messed that one up for the females.
---Antonio on 3/26/08


Behind every good man is a good woman, and behind the man-made mess we have today are enabling and encouraging women. So if Greg is right, that women have the more ability to be spiritual (which is what I gather from his posts) then they have suddenly given up in favour of a material prosperity and security for their own family - temporary and worldly security at the cost of their souls.
---frances008 on 3/22/08


Adam ate of the tree of conscience, and we need to learn how to use that knowledge properly (Hebrews 5:14) by learning fromthe spirit to divide (a dichotomy) between right and wrong (as a sword would) so the change from good to evil is clear and abrupt,...withNO middle ground (James 1:17, "no shadow or variation"). Jesus didn't come to bring 'peace of mind' to everyonewho rather continue doing whatever they wish, He came to produce a division in our minds between right and wrong (Luke 12:51).
---greg on 3/22/08


Women are more familiar with the 'sentiment' of love. For that reason alone they are more able to see what The Lord really wants of a PERSONAL relationship (INTIMACY with Him, and true genuine compassion/sorrow for others).

Men understand strength differently than women and tend not to be subjective, but usually more OBJECTIVE, so both men and women are COMPLIMENTARY in spiritual matters.
---greg on 3/22/08


Nothing in scripture is happenstance (of random occurrence). All events and words were put there so that they would be available someday for us to learn from (if that is what we wish).

Properly understanding His true message to humanity is like understanding His three gracious gifts to all of humanity...
1) Creation (Father) FAITH that He is our common heritage.
2) Salvation (Jesus) HOPE for life everlasting.
3) The Godly spirit (LOVE) "the GREATEST of these".

The person at the well recognized "Messiah" more easily because of the desire to have something special/better/greater ("living water"). Being of "the weaker [gentler] sex" and subjectively understanding sentiment/intimacy, women will find the "rivers of living water" (tears of sorrow for the poor/weak, John 7:38) more attractive than the 'stronger', 1 Corin. 1:27.
---greg on 3/22/08


The "rivers of living water" (John 7:38) were mixed with Christ's blood at the cross and are of ultimate importance (Revelation 7:16) because simply eating of the bread of life is not enough. The rivers of living water will improve our conscience and allow it to be purified when we learn from God's eternal spirit (Hebrews 9:14) so that we can have the PRESENT heaven in our heart and mind (Romans 12:2).
---greg on 3/22/08


So, just as God's gifts of grace are three, what message we receive from scripture depends on what satisfies our heart and mind.

Most people all over the world (of ANY faith) simply have FAITH that God is "the creator".

Fewer also choose HOPE through Jesus, of everlasting life.
Sadly, far fewer will truly dedicate themselves ("in my inmost SELF", Romans 7:22) in their PERSONal relationship/devotion and daily life because they refuse to love the truth (2 Thess. 2).
---greg on 3/22/08


Many people simply ENJOY 'scholarly pursuit' of 'TEXT' (as though God is a book) and the approval of man, but never understand that scripture is the introductory doctrine of Christ (Hebrews 6:1), the "word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15, Ephesians 1:13, John 14:6) because they have no concern to move on to maturity in their relationship and seek "the depths of God" (1 Corinthians 2:10).

The "strong delusion" has lasted for thousands of years because humanity has chosen the doctrines of the heart (Ezekiel 14:4-8 (the KJV correctly translates the word "according") and has hidden the truth right before our eyes that the word that we should LIVE BY is "the sword of the spirit" (Ephesians 6:17) and that we should "walk by the SPIRIT" (Galatians 5:16 and 25).

Men are busy providing for their families, unless they are retired, they do not have time for blogging.
Women use more words, but are not more spiritual.

Seems like like the Lord taught Adam not to eat. Adam taught Eve
what the Lord commanded. When the Lord came, he called out to
Adam, not "Hey guys, where are you?". It would appear that Adam
did not teach Eve well, but again, he ate quite readily, so then he
was not too firm in his conviction. That could not be Eve's excuse,
judging by each getting their own separate punishments.
---Nana on 3/6/08


2 Eloy: Ok want to put it all on eve ok then let's see what Adam did. Genesis 3:6 Eve gave some to Adam, did he say no? NO! he ate it. What happened later Gen3:10 He tried to hide from God!! That's not all, Gen3:11 Blamed God for the woman He gave her.
Gen3:17 explains y He banished Adam from da garden, because he listened 2 his wife instead of God. Adam should've taken some kind of authority of his wife because he is the head of his wife (Eph6:23)

Genesis 3:22 And the LORD said, "The MAN has now become like one of us, knowing all good & evil. HE MUST NOT be allowed to REACH OUT HIS HAND and take ALSO from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.
(NIV, emphasis mine)
---magga4386 on 3/4/08


But Eloy, wasn't Adam in the greater sin than Eve--he knew just what he was doing! And he did nothing to help the situation. But (and forgive me for this: i just have to tease a little): you will believe whatever you desire. :D Don't get mad, just teasing :)
---Mary on 3/1/08


magga, "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." I Timothy 2:14. lit.Hb: "And the woman saw, that it a good tree to eat of and a desire to the eyes and a desirous tree for to make one wise, and took of the fruit from it and ate, then catered likewise to her man nearby, from which he ate." Genesis 3:6.
---Eloy on 2/28/08


There may be more saved women than men, Because women are of a more dependent nature than man. And God is looking for people who will depend only on Him. Men believes they have all the answers and they are strong, wittier, so they feel they don't need God. And Men are generally more independent. Independence will not work in God's economy. Pride is such an issue among all humans.

Wow tough question, well there are obviously more spiritual men in th bible then the are women. But that doesn't answer the question justfully(is that a word).
Mmmm i would have to we're even. I mean God gave us all the same Holy Spirit, it just depends on how we utilize it, but it doesn't make us less spiritual.
You cannot say that i am less spiritual than my pastor because we're all sinners, sin makes us less spiritual. i rekn we're all on da sme level.
---magga4386 on 2/26/08


By the way Eloy was Eve alone when she ate the fruit, no Adam was with her and did he object no he did not, he didn't say anything...don't you recall that he also ate from the forbidden tree even though he also knew he couldn't eat from it, he clearly heard what God had told him not to do. This an example of the equality of spiritualness of Adam and Eve. Both sinned, both fell short of spiritualness, equally.

Thats why a King is no better than a Poor Man in the eyes of God!

"Competition between men and women causes a spirit of division. We are to be content with who God created us to be".
---Cindy on 2/24/08

Great point Cindy! I just wish more pastors agreed with you. The problem I see is (for example), on Mothers Day, the preacher lifts up women and tells men to do the same, on Father's Day, the preacher beats up men, and reinforces the gripes of women, causing a rift. In sin we are equally fallen. In Christ we are equally saved and empowered.
---j._nonymous on 2/25/08


I do not think that women are more spiritual, nor do I think that men are more spiritual. I believe that God gave all of us the Holy Spirit when we accepted Christ as our Savior. He alone decides what gifts He gives to us. For us to argue a point of who is more spiritual causes us to judge. Remember what our Lord said about judging. Peace
---Barbara_L._Watkins on 2/25/08


Oh Eloy! I hope someday you get over your superiority complex--honestly! I'm not arguing that Eve was the orginal in sin but hey, Adam was ZERO help to her if you recall! Then he blamed both God and Eve for his sin.
---Mary on 2/25/08


Jezebel would tell you that they are.
The answer is a definite, No.

Cindy: are women more spiritual than men?

That was the question. I think you got sidetracked. Sounds like you're accusing someone of murmuring here. I don't know what you're talking about. You must be thinking of a different blog. Have a nice day.
---j._nonymous on 2/24/08


No, woman are not more spiritual than men. The Bible refers to women as the weaker vessel, and it was through the first woman in the garden of Eden, that the whole human race had fallen into sin.
---Eloy on 2/24/08


Trials and hardships mold us and shape us into strong Christians.

In contrast, if we constantly complain about our hardships and trials, then our souls will perish at the judgment seat of Christ and we will fail to enter into the kingdom of heaven. The choice is ours.
---Cindy on 2/24/08


Constant complainers and murmurers need victims.

Those who constantly complain and murmur will attract the same kind of people. Misery loves company, miserable murmurers attract miserable complainers.

If one is a constant murmurer, a choice must be made in your heart that you will cease to be this kind of person immediately. You need to call upon the power and authority of Jesus Christ to help you become a new person who is content in present circumstances.

God clearly says in His word that He hates constant complaining.

Israelites in the Wilderness constantly complained and murmured about their circumstances, they all perished in the Wilderness. Only two went into the Promised Land and they were Joshua and Caleb.

Many Christians will lose because of their constant complaining about their circumstances.

(Phil 4:11 KJV) Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Murmurers and complainers spend abnormal amounts of time with their victims, anyone who will listen.

Constant complaining and murmuring.

(3 John 1:10 KJV) Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

When we murmur or complain about our circumstances, we are not murmuring against our fellow Christians, but against God.


(Exo 16:7 KJV) And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD, for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?

(Exo 16:8 KJV) And Moses said,.. for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD.

When we complain and gripe about our circumstances, we are complaining about God, for it is He that has ordained our circumstances. The hardships and trials that we go through mold our character and determine our resilience for further trials and hardships.

Interesting...if woman are more ****relationship oriented**** it might be Woman are more spiritual then men...as Christianity is a personal and intimate..( relationship oriented)relationship with Jesus Christ.

Woman are more intuitive,and many men do rely on that special gift God gave to women.

Spirituality??? We have Carnal and we have Spiritual. One is flesh driven and one is Holy Spirit driven.

Men's pride and ambition and ego are also flesh driven...(an emotional category too)

By nature females are typically (if there is a typical)more emotional than males. It is often difficult for many to separate being "spiritual" from being "emotional". Truely having both with some control can be a blessing. I think "the fervent prayer of a righteous man (or woman) availeth much". Gauging the degree of spirituality can be a poor way to know someone's heart.

What I discovered about spiritual differences with genders is: A) Men tend to lead the way in change (Good or Bad.) B.) Women either perfect a new trend, go further in it. (Check it out Historically) Drugs, Violence, Smoking, Business, Prophetic Experience, Patriotism, Gangs, etc, etc. Both are needed in God's Kingdom! Notice, St. Paul started the church, Women help perfect it.

Ah, no. Women, in general, tend to be more relationship-oriented than the men. Thus seeking out emotional bonds with those they love outwardly and openly. Granted, not all women are like this, but most of us are. This being said, it is quite possible that women appear to be more spiritually-minded or equipped simply because they show their emotions more openly. Cont.

I have noticed in my own life that the spiritual gifts God has given me often (but not always) compliment my personality traits or talents. So being I'm outgoing it's only natural for me to encourage someone with my words or a hug or something. My husband on the other hand may pray for them on his own and then feel prompted to do something for them, such as give them money, anonymously. We are both still acting upon our spiritual nature, but mine is more prevelent to onlookers. Cont.

So does this make me the more spiritual one because it's something visible? No way. If anything he was the more spiritual one in this situation in that he sought out the Lord in prayer, and then acted on what he felt prompted to do. The difference being, he didn't get rewarded by man for being "nice". (I hope I was able to get my point across, short answer would be, no, of course not.)
---kady on 2/13/08


Some are definitely more spiritual, but not necessarily more scriptural (Bible-based) & this is a major problem in the Church today.

I believe women are more open to spirituality & that can be a good or bad thing, e.g., Eve in the garden (very bad) versus the woman at the well (very good).

I think the question is what spirit, i.e., God's Holy Spirit or familiar/deceiving/lying spirits?
---Leon on 2/13/08


It depends on how close they are to God, on a daily basis. Some days I feel closer to God than my husband and the same with him.
---Rebecca_D on 2/13/08


I believe women as a whole are more spiritual than men. The cause for this has to do with the subservient role women play in the world. The more humble a person is the more acceptable that person is for God to work with.
