Here was my entry:writercize: This week is debate week. Pick a side for the following question and write a compelling argument. The question is:Who rules the world - men or women?(Hint: Think like a lawyer, even if you don't believe in the side you choose, provide the evidence to make the jury believe!)
Honorable Judge Walker and members of the jury, I'll say it again. Men rule the world.
God made man in his image. The Bible, which is the oldest law book in the world, states right in Genesis 1:26 that man was created in God's image to rule over the earth. Woman were merely created to be a companion to man and to bear children.
God gave man the task of naming all the animals and ruling over them. God gave man the task of planting crops and caring for the land.
Men are the ones in authority over the world and over women. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 2:12 that women should not teach or have authority over men. Ephesians 22-24 says the husband is the head of the wife and that wives should submit to to their husbands.
So, Judge and jury, the evidence is clear. Men rule the world. This is upheld by the Bible and I urge you to rule in favor of men.
I rest my case.
