WEFOUNDRepresentative Women: From Eve, the Wife of the First, to Mary, the Mother of the Scond Adam (Classic Reprint)


The three-day Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) that ended on Thursday made a lot of buzz in the media, but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of being dominated by the outcomes of the summit, Ivanka Trump’s leading the US delegation grabbed more attention, mostly negative.

To add fuel to the fire, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s decision not to send a high-level delegation to the summit made the internal strife more evident, disparaging the most high-profile event the First Daughter of United States has so far undertaken.

India hosted the summit for the first time, which was indeed a matter of pride, and the establishment did a perfect job as host by throwing out a massive red carpet. Although Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special interest in wooing Ms Trump looked rather overdone, it was nevertheless a smart move to reach out to the White House.

The ancient nation of Israel was pictured as God’s adulterous wife; the coming federation of apostate religions is as “the great whore”; while the true church is figured as the Bride of the Lamb. Familiar and indispensable objects such as “ships” are often given female names and referred to in a feminine way as, for instance, “ She is a sea-worthy vessel.” Think of the applications of the precious term “mother” that we have. A true patriot speaks of the land of his birth affording him privileges and protection, as his “Motherland”—
