Dating the godly way

He stepped in and told those men to “leave her alone”.

What Jesus had done in this incident was setting the standard for how men should treat women.

In other words, he protected the woman from the assault carried on by men on her.

As a Christian man you need to show the world how a Christian treats his woman.But before that we need to agree to a definition of a Christian man. There you’ll find examples of how Jesus treated women. One of the Marys was at his feet (she was always at his feet in the Gospel) perfuming his toes before his entry to Jerusalem.Three men were around and they started insulting her and calling her names.Jesus didn’t participate in this sinful act of course, neither had he approved it by silence.I wish I could say that you should step in and protect any woman who might be facing an assault. However, there are things you can do to protect stranger women from certain types of assault.

For example, if your guy-friends are sexualizing a woman you know, as a Christian man you should step in and ask them to stop. If your friends are mentioning a female co-worker (or classmate) and describing her in a degrading way, your duty as a Christian man is to step in and defend your sister. And of course if a woman in your family is being assaulted you have to step in and do something.If you don’t do it, who do you expect to do it for you? If we think it as humans with our limited knowledge one would say that it is not a good idea to bring any kids to this world. I a confident that God has a plan for this world, and my role in has already been determined. What I am trying to do now is to call other humans back to the right path.
