Women Are Bad, Sinners - Poem by Richard Merrell

'Women are bad; sinners
They are rotten to the core;
women are bad; sinners'
I've heard this cry before.
For when men sin and fail
The excuse they like to give;
Is, 'That woman made me do it
she is to blame as long as I live! '

Now Adam said the same to God
After eating forbidden fruit,
'It was the woman that YOU gave me'
But he had listened to her flute.
For Eve was but beguiled
By the Serpent's cunning lie,
But Adam disobeyed God's voice -
The Lord he did defy.

Now, I'd like to ask all men
To be men if thou wilt;
Does God account man's fall to Eve,
Or do men die from Adam's guilt?

So, if women are bad; sinners
Who are rotten to the core;
Then those who have made this allegation
Are but sinning all the more!

Genesis 3: 6-12; Romans 5: 12-21; Colossians 3: 19; 1 Timothy 2: 14

'Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.'

'Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah also loved the congregation and gave himself for her.' Ephesians 5: 25


Wedding Rings
Freedom in your marriage
The Faithful Husband
The Faithful Wife
