Perspective of womanhood is well documented in God's Word. Perspective is defined as the appearance of things as determined by the viewer. However, when it comes to the infallible Word of God it no longer is an appearance of things but a stated fact. Response to the biblical view of womanhood is often as hearing the Word of God; that of not being a doer (James 1:23-24).
After the creation of man, the Lord God said: "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a help mate for him" (Genesis 2:18). Help mate basically means to aid or supply that which the individual cannot provide for himself. It conveys the idea of aiding someone in need.
Scripture tells of the creation of the woman: And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh. And the rib, which he had taken from man, make he a woman, and brought her to the man (Genesis 2:21-22).
Scripture further reveals that God created man in his own image, male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said to them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth (Genesis 1:27-28). The role of a godly man and woman, joined together as one flesh in holy matrimony, are joint heirs together and honorable in the sight of God.
Jesus said: "Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife: and the two shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together let not man put asunder" (Matthew 19:4-6).
The fulfillment of God's will for man "replenish the earth" could never be accomplished in the Sodom and Gomorrah setting of America, and other nations. The sanctity of marriage is no longer honored; to its fullness, with same sex marriage becoming the law of the land. In America, God's perspective of womanhood has been overruled by a judicial ruling in favor of the ungodliness of man.
To a great extent modern day perspective of womanhood, in many Western nations, has taken a blatant disregard towards the qualities of a virtuous woman identified in God's Word (Proverbs 31:10-27) and in its place the self-assertive woman who demands headship in many area of life.
The meek and quiet spirit of womanhood is identified in God's Word as being of great value in the sight of God (1 Peter 3:4). However, in America and many Western nations, such a trait has been replaced by the assertive woman who demands recognition.
Such dominance is not Scriptural; in that God's Word identifies the fact Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression (1 Timothy 2:13-14). Thank God for the perspective of womanhood as originally intended; not of dominance over man, but as a help mate and companion.
In America, we are living in a time where one out of two marriages fail. Where being chaste, or sexually pure prior to marriage, has become a fallen trait. Where many children are being raised by one parent because of failed marriages. Where same sex marriage has further eroded the biblical concept of marriage.
If such practice is continued long enough; the productive means God placed within man and woman would fail. There would be a generic relationship rather than productive. China now faces a dilemma in its attempt to alter God's productive through limiting each family to one child. It now is finding a generation gap towards supporting its older population. Man is bringing about his own demise through sinful and ungodly lifestyles.
The unfruitful works of darkness has eroded the greatness of America and many other nations. The sad fact is; that which previously was conceived in darkness is now blatant and openly practiced.
The godly concept of family has become threatened through availability of legalized abortion and legalized same sex marriage. The institution of the God-ordained family has radically been changed by man's intervention. The flirtation of God's Word, to enhance one's own ungodly lifestyle, has altered the course of man as intended by God.
God's intent for mankind needs to be revived again; with the Word of God being proclaimed in its fullness; not to appease man, but God. The Church in America, and other Western nations, has allowed slackness towards God's Word to enter in; to appease current ungodly lifestyles of man's own devising.
Satan, the enemy of one's soul; has been effective in His plan to deceive. America, and other once godly nations, need a soul searching, life-changing, revival in the land, to return to God's original, and never-changing, desire for mankind!
Sad state of affairs; matters of concern, certainly can play havoc with one's mind. The world is in a turmoil; seeking answers to life's perlexing problems.

Captivity of the soul is a reminder that one needs to be careful as to what is allowed to enter into one's mind that would captivate one's actions.
Crime of humanity originated in the Garden of Eden; taking away what God intended for mankind.
