Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” – Genesis 2:18
In order to believe this verse, one must first believe several things.
1. That God exists.
2. That God made man.
3. That God cares for man.
The principle in this verse is that woman was created for man, and that a man is incomplete without a woman.
God decided to make a helper, (not a slave) and one that would be suitable to the man’s needs. He did not make someone who was the same, but someone different. Woman is opposite, but compliments man.
I find this interesting in light of Hebrews 11:6 “and without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”
God exists. God made man. God cares for man.
