Satan’s Plan: Spiritual Warfare on the Homefront
In the ordinary realm of spiritual warfare, we see how God’s curse on the genders has affected how men and women relate to one another. We are not going to address the curse on Adam in detail here because it does not directly relate to this discussion. We must note generally, however, that man’s curse is twofold and includes not only hard labor on earth, but also physical death. God’s curse on woman is not only relevant to spiritual warfare, it is fundamental to woman’s relationship to man. In Genesis 3:16 God tells Eve that not only will her pain in childbirth greatly increase, but that:
Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.
