As a woman, feminism can be both a strange and personal topic for me to read about only because…I feel like a person. 

Therefore for something as trivial as biology to create such a big fuss is quite uncomfortable, especially when no one chose to be born a male or female in the first place. 

Being a woman is not something that I think about daily, to be frank. Nor something that I believe can make someone stand out – since it’s something that just happens. You are born this way to fulfill the biological purposes and end of the story.

But since it appears to be an important subject and has been, for some reason, a trait that should define people, Christians also deserve that their voices be heard on the matter.

The root of the problem

Has men in history been the domineering species, including among Jews? Yes.

DO YOU WANT TO BE NOTIFIED?

When we publish something new, you will be the first one to know about it.

Why? Because the strong takes the weak. The lion hunts the lamb. Not the other way around. And women, along with the poor, were viewed this way.

At its core, It’s a problem of immaturity and a mentality issue.

What would Jesus think about the above?

So the last shall be first, and the first last”

Matthew 20:16

Jesus cheers for the underdogs in society the whole New Testament, not just for women but for all kinds of outcasts as well.

For Him, the weak are made strong, and the greatest protagonists of a story are the servants.

The lamb is the one that triumphs over the lions at the cross – flipping society’s mentality upside down.

Both Men and Women Stood by Jesus

This means that both of them agreed with Jesus on the above message. Then how come all of Jesus’s disciples were men? Well, they weren’t.

Mary of Magdalene was a woman who traveled as Jesus’s disciple along with the boys and was the one who maintained Him. Maintaining a man was not something very proper for a woman to do back then.

Does this mean All women must copy Mary of Magdalene? No, don’t forget Mary of Nazareth was a completely different person with a completely different mission – and a woman too.

Was her mission less because it involved being a mother and not something of a male? On the contrary, she became the mother of all believers – one of the hardest jobs – ain’t that right, mothers? 

I believe that says enough, plus everyone needs and wants a mother, let’s face it. Who doesn’t love a dedicated stay-at-home mom? 

What can I take away from this?

That women are people who are Christians too.

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Galatians 3:28

All of us share Jesus’s blood, just like families share blood. We are a family united through Christ with different personalities and callings, whether you are a man or a woman, black or white or Japanese or American.

And as part of the heavenly family here on Earth – we can proudly call ourselves sons and daughters of Christ.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn’t drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Support Operando Society

We are devoted volunteers and we don't want to live in a society where there are a poverty, hunger and misery, which is just inexcusable!

We believe our World can be better, nicer and fair. We do our best to contribute, adding our peace of the puzzle to get this beautiful picture we all thrive for.

We are not paid for the work we do; the money is not our motivation and doesn't drive us in our endeavours working with (and for) the poor from the edges of our society. But of course, without financial resources, we could not implement our goals and activities.

Our website and all that we offer you for free actually cost us. A global missionary journey of our volunteers, Silva and Nace, also costs. There are expenses of transport that we pay regularly from our account - the money that depends on our donors, sponsors, supporters and all the others who want to contribute their share to our mission.

Hence, your donation is not a gift for the benefits of our members and volunteers. It is entirely spent to develop new projects and to cover our regular expenses: website maintenance, accounting and travel expenses for our volunteers.

We know that you care. So we encourage you to support our work and make it possible for us to help the poorest in this World.
