    Corinthians11:3)3 But I want YOU to know that the head of every man is the Christ; in turn the head of a woman is the man; in turn the head of the Christ is God.

    So woman answers to man, man to Christ, Christ to God......

    Are woman held accountable to Christ at his return or at the end of the millenial reign?

    Even in democratic and socialistic societies men have historically prevailed, and often still do.

    According to Genesis, woman have never really been able to rule themselves without falling into subjection after Eden.

    I really don't know, what are your opinions?

    Yknot.......of the if my husband barks one more 'order' at me I am gonna bury him in the backyard next to the deck addition we are building today class

    Humm, interesting point. I think the answer would be that they are judge on how the obey their husband in accordance to god's law. But then again the bible also says it's okay to sell your daughter as a slave, so I don't think the bible is a very good moral guide, I think you probably figure that one out already.

    That might have to do with Gods cursing of the woman after the eating of the fuit! For the man the Earth was cursed so he would struggle to grow food.

    Genesis 3:16 (King James Version)

    Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

    3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

    3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

    3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

    I wanted to add to that so nobody is confused. I did not mean the woman was cursed but was given curses like the pains and the craving for her husband and she would be dominated.

    Man got his curses too!

    Society has dominated women and still do making them out to be lesser then men!

    We can see that now women can be just as intelligent as any man or even alot smarter!

    I think women are just as accountable as men!

    Are women accountable to Christ? Only if they seek their husbands permission
