Genesis 2: 15-23
State of the Church 2019 Pt. 2

To open today’s sermon Pastor Nathan begins with the topic of women in leadership. Pastor Nathan starts at the beginning, the book of Genesis. It is important to start in Genesis because this is where we are introduced to the idea of women being a helper. To understand the importance of women in leadership, we need to understand how they are helpers. 

Pastor Nathan’s main points:
- Eve will be an ezer.
- Her desire will be man: he will rule over her

In conclusion, Pastor Nathan reminds us that man ruling over women is not God’s divine plan, it is part of the curse of sin according to Genesis 3. Man ruling side by side with women is God’s divine according to Genesis 2.
