Feminists Have Done Violence to Mothering

Feminists Have Done Violence to Mothering

“Feminists have largely controlled the public image of women. Mothers at home, who are impediments to the feminist agenda, have been largely ignored. In their thrust for subsidized child care, equal rights, abortion rights, feminists have done violence to mothering with their constant proclamation that mothering is a ‘low status job'” (Dr. Brenda Hunter).

Unfortunately, feminists have not only controlled the public image of secular women but Christian women as well. Many Christian women seem to be as unsubmissive to their husbands as women who are not believers and Christian women are working in full-time careers in almost the same numbers as those women who don’t claim the name of Christ. Instead of searching scriptures for God’s will for their lives, they go along with our culture instead, sadly.

Anyone who fights for subsidized child care is fighting for something that is not from the Lord. Children need their mothers full time. The last thing mothers need is more incentives to leave their children in the care of others all day long. They need incentives to stay home with their children and care for them.

Ken and I were watching a television show recently and two young daughters just found out that their beloved nanny had quit and their mom was going to have to find another one for them since their mother had a high-powered and stressful career that kept her away from her children most of the time. The daughters cried, “Whose going to take care of us?” That question should never have to be asked by children. Their mothers are the ones responsible to care for them!

All of the equal rights that feminists are fighting for are those in the workplace which make it more desirable for mothers to pursue. When they get equal pay with men (which they mostly do), paid maternity leave, and other perks, why should they stay home with their children? In their minds, working outside the home is much more profitable than raising children since money has more worth in our culture than children. (You don’t believe me? Ask people who they would rather be; Oprah Winfrey with her millions or Michelle Duggar with her nineteen children. Most would much rather have wealth than many children.)

There are many women, even Christian women, who place their careers above being mothers. I know some Christian women who have no desire to ever have children because their careers are more important. How did this ever infiltrate the Church? Why is the Church so weak that it listens to the lies of our culture instead of the Words of God? How could women in the Church ever believe that a career is more important than having and raising children when children are clearly blessings from the Lord?

There are some acquaintances of ours that don’t believe in the God who created the universe. They just can’t believe a good God can send anyone to hell. The Bible states that the only ones that God is going to send to hell are those who “hold the truth in unrighteousness;’ those know the truth but refuse it and reject their Creator. I have noticed something about these families who reject God and His truth, each generation is producing less and less children. Some of the children have become homosexuals, some transgenders, some never marry, and some never have children. Each generation gets smaller in number.

Then there are acquaintances and friends of ours who love the Lord. I hate to say this but their numbers aren’t growing much either. They marry late and then put off having children due to the women having careers. Then if they have children, they only have a few since they want their “freedom” to travel and enjoy life before children come onto the scene. They waste valuable fertile years to pursue pleasure instead of bearing and raising godly offspring.

Where are the Christians who want to marry, then begin having children soon after marriage, if the Lord blesses them in this way? In the chat room, there are many women who are like this but they feel lonely in their beliefs. People at church make comments about their many children, as if having children were a sin. Jesus had a lot of things to say about children and they were all good.

Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kindgom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18: 3-6).

He created children. He knits them together in their mother’s womb. He calls them gifts and blessings and so should we.

Feminism Has Created a Brutal Landscape For Women

Feminism Has Created a Brutal Landscape For Women

As you know, I hate feminism and what it has done to women, marriage, children, and our culture. It’s destructive tentacles have reached out and invaded everything, even the Church, unfortunately. Jeannette Kupferman wrote a devastating article in the dailymail.uk called Will my granddaughter pay the price of my fight for equality? and she clearly sees the harm feminism has had on women. Feminism is a scheme from the pit of hell.

“Has feminism made life worse, not better, for today’s generation of girls?

Certainly, women have never existed in such a bleak emotional landscape.

The well-meaning battles we embarked on in idealistic youth have somehow robbed young women of the soul of femininity. We’ve lost something precious, distinctive and unique. 

Meanwhile, traditional roles have become ever more ideologically despised — so much so that last week the very act of being a housewife or mother was banned from advertisements for perpetuating ‘outdated’ gender stereotypes.

For all the efforts of feminism, and the enlargement of women’s opportunities, it seems it’s also made that world more painful, complicated and unrewarding.

My own life — one where loss, hardship and struggle has always played a part — has taught me that simple pleasures matter just as much. And that’s the message I want to now share with my granddaughter’s generation. We’re in danger of losing the essence of womanhood in this brutal landscape.

It’s somehow ironic that the one section of society which still dresses modestly — women in ethnic and religious minorities — say they do so to protect their sacred space as females.

Meanwhile, the majority of other young women brutally expose their bodies, catering to every tawdry male fantasy, as a sign of their ‘freedom’.”

Women today falsely believe they’re free but they’re not. They are in bondage. They are in bondage to the lies of the enemy of their souls and are selling their souls in exchange for empty, lonely, and devastating lives. God came to set the prisoner free. He came to set you free, feminists, of your feminist’s ways. His ways are lovely and perfect. They are true freedom. Sin promises freedom, but dishes out pain, frustration, emptiness, and horror instead. Feminist’s fruit is coming to fruition and it’s all vile and rotten. It’s becoming clearer every single day.

Young women are encouraged to have “free sex” and pursue higher education and careers instead of getting married, bearing children, and guiding their homes. They are told to send their children to daycare and public schooling instead of raising them in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord and yes, having boundaries for them, disciplining, and training them. They are encouraged to divorce their husbands when they aren’t happy instead of being covenant keepers until death do they part. They are sold a bill of goods in buying provocative clothing to cause men to lust instead of dressing modestly and respecting themselves and the men around them enough to cover up.

There are too many young women who want to get married but aren’t being asked. They have attended higher education and began careers but no one is asking them to get married. Feminism has created too many women who are no longer feminine and men are no longer attracted to them. They can find what they want as easily with porn without the commitment. When and if women get married, their lives are exhausting and unmanageable with trying to work full time, keep a marriage alive, and raise children who they are rarely with.

“We’ve forgotten that even everyday tasks can nourish the soul — and you can find contentment in the boring certainties.

I hope my little Amber Ann discovers this, too. Whatever she becomes, she can create a good home-cooked meal, sit quietly in the garden with a book, or enjoy a day at the seaside with her own children.”

I don’t believe this author is a Christian or knows about the Lord’s ways but she can see the devastation feminism has had on women. Anyone with eyes to see can see it, too. God has ordained for you to be in your homes, women, and with your children, if you have them. He’s given you the role as help meet to your husband and this is perfect for you. Find your joy in doing these, knowing that they were created by your Creator for you.

As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
Psalm 18:30

Feminism Leads to Barrenness and Infertility

Feminism Leads to Barrenness and Infertility

“Once upon a time, women wanted to get married and have kids. They wanted other things too, but marriage and motherhood was first on the list. As a result of this natural desire, women needed to find a ‘marriageable’ man, aka a good man who could also make a comfortable living. This arrangement allowed women to raise their children without the burden of earning an income. Men understood this arrangement, and, seeing as they aren’t the ones who bear children, it made sense. In fact, they took pride in being able to provide for their families. Then feminists came along to implode this entire arrangement…” (Suzanne Venker)

“The defining characteristics of feminism are not femininity and fertility, but barrenness and infertility.” A woman shared this tragic article with me last week called Will Europe’s childless leaders halt demographic decline? If you aren’t convinced of the evil of feminism, I pray this article will convince you and you will go back to the ancient paths the Lord has set for us.

The top European leaders are childless. How has women voting created this (You know, that “great” accomplishment of feminism)? “For example, many of French citizens who cast their vote for Emmanuel Macron in the recent French presidential election were women. Before the election, 62 percent of female voters said they would back Macron.” Women are now choosing our leaders which is NOT a good thing.

Here are some of the other sobering facts from this article:

“A recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center shows that the number of young men in the US who want to marry has dropped to the lowest level ever recorded.” 

“Feminism was largely successful in severing sex from reproduction. This was considered progressive, a step forward that liberated women from caring for their children, so they could join the labor market and realize themselves.”

“The decline and fall of Rome has been explained by its decadent and ‘bachelor culture,’ much like what afflicts us in northern Europe. It is important that those who want to keep Western civilization alive do not amputate its roots and then think that it can still survive. Or should survive.”

Did you know that in past generations the Church was vehemently opposed to birth control? Now we can see why. The fruit of it has been evil. This was written in 1946 by Dr. John Rice: “Those who would encourage widespread use of contraceptives, and other artificial methods of birth control or prevention, are in the minority and have always been opposed by most of the Christian and moral leadership of the world.” Oh, how far the Church as fallen.

Mr. Rice goes on to tell of a wise Christian writer, Dr. B. H. Shadduck who facetiously suggested in his pamphlet, Stopping the Stork, that if people want to limit the size of their families they should wait until the child is two years old and then decide whether to kill it or not. Once babies are born, we love them and understand that they are a great blessing from God.

We are reaping the fruit of the leftist (Satan’s) agenda which is to kill, steal, and destroy. They have killed babies (abortion), stolen away the rights of many children to be born (birth control), and destroyed marriage, thus destroying nations. Let us not fall into lock step with this madness but seek the Lord and what He has plainly written in His Word. He created marriage and He created it for life. He creates children and calls them a blessing.

John Rice told a story of a man who had eight children and some of them were in college. The youngest was getting older when he found out his wife was pregnant. They weren’t too thrilled about it but that baby was the biggest blessing to this family. Even when the college age children came home, all they wanted to do was to play with that baby! Children bring joy and happiness to the home.

Mr. Rice had six children of his own. (Just because you don’t use birth control doesn’t mean you’ll have 18 children!) “In my own home there have been eight of us to eat around the same table, eight of us to have family worship together. There was always somebody to play tennis with, or somebody to sing with, or somebody to play checkers or dominoes with…Our children never wanted to go to other people’s homes to play or visit. Other people’s children came to our home where there were so many people and where there was always something doing! My children never needed expensive toys to play with. People are more fun to play with than toys.”

This world needs godly offspring more than it needs anything else. Gaining a college degree and a career can’t even compare to bearing and raising children who are eternal beings. If you are young, married, and fertile, go have babies and raise them for the Lord! Then train your sons to work hard and want families of their own and teach your daughters to want to marry, bear children, and guide the home. Most importantly, teach them all about the perfect ways of the Lord and the joy of living for Him!

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Psalm 127:3-5

Misogyny in the Church

Misogyny in the Church

Do you love being a woman and the role that the LORD has given you? Do you believe the Word of God as written? Then you are in the minority of women, as you know. The LORD has told us that the road is narrow and few want to walk on it.  Most choose to walk on the broad path that leads to destruction. I believe the Word just as God has written it. I accept absolutes easily. Most seem to try to explain them away; I simply take God at His Word. He’s our Creator and He knows what’s best for us.

Many women want to fight, twist, and water it down. This is a bad place to be. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book (Revelation 22:19).

An article titled The Hashtag #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear Is Blowing Up Twitter and Pointing Out Misogyny in the Church is an example of those women who are in this bad place unless they repent and believe God’s Word the way it was written.

Misogyny means “a hatred of women.” Women in America have more rights than ever before but feminists will NEVER be content because they are searching for worth on this earth instead of in Christ and they will NEVER be men!

What are these things we need to address that are supposedly misogynist in the Church and are so wrong according to feminists? Here are some of the tweets.

“You can’t serve communion, but you are expected to serve at the potluck later.” Women serve communion in our church but I wouldn’t care at all if they didn’t. Some churches have the elders and deacons, who are all men, serve but so what. Feminists make a big to do over the non-essentials and only seem concerned about their perceived rights. What a waste of one’s time! Jesus, the Creator of everything, would have gladly served at a potluck. After all, He got down on His knees and washed His disciples feet. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant (Matthew 23:11).

“When you heard many sermons on how women submit to husbands but zero on how husbands lay down their life for wife.” I have never heard a sermon from the pulpit of any church I have attended in my 58 years that teach women to submit to their husbands. In fact, there are few women preachers/teachers/writers/bloggers who even teach it. Instead of searching out Scripture for how they are to live their lives, they prefer to hear how their husbands should treat them instead. These women are either unbelievers or baby Christians because those who are mature in the faith examine themselves to see how they can become more like Christ. They understand that they will only have to answer for themselves one day instead of constantly pointing their finger at their husband. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5).

“Dress modestly because men are too weak. Also men are in charge of you because they are spiritually superior.” Men are too weak? The Bible calls women the weaker vessel and  easily deceived. This doesn’t bother me at all. I try to measure everything according to the Word because of this tendency. Yes, men struggle with lust but women struggle with their desire to control. For some reason, these women fail to point out any of their struggles and weaknesses.

Are men spiritually superior? No, it’s simply the way God has designed it partially because women are the ones who are easily deceived because they are often led by their emotions and feelings instead of by wisdom, as these tweets prove. These women are having childish temper tantrums and screaming, “Life isn’t fair!” Their parents failed to teach them that no, life isn’t fair and all things aren’t equal but that’s okay. The sooner children are taught this, the easier life will be for them to not only live under their parent’s authority but God’s authority.

“A little girl raised in today’s culture is eventually going to start asking: Why does my teacher at school tell me I can be the next President of the United States, while my teacher in Sunday school says the only teaching I can do at church is teach children or a room full of women. Whether your church holds to this particular standard or not is beside the point. This is the perception of the culture toward the broader church.” As a Sunday School teacher, I would never tell a girl she could be the President of the United States. I would encourage her to want to get married, bear children, and be a keeper at home since these are all God’s perfect plan for women. I would explain all of the wonderful ways that God made males and females differently.

“Leaders, it is time that we lead and steward what God has given us better. Silencing and ignoring is not leadership. Loving, teaching and addressing concerns is leading like Jesus led.” This author believes that women should be leaders in the Church. She doesn’t see anything wrong with it because she doesn’t believe the Word of God. She’s making up her own bible and serving her own god.

Feminists are jealous of men. These comments prove it. I love being a woman and I love the role the LORD has given me. I pray you do too. Read your Bible, believe it, and do what God has told you to do.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:7, 8

Feminism Gives Women No Choice at All

Feminism Gives Women No Choice at All

Nothing seems to make women today more angry than when I write about women being keepers at home as if mothers being home full time with their children is a horrible idea. They try to convince me that feminism only wants to give women a choice and it’s good but I don’t ever believe them. An article called Feminism Has a Ferocity Problem explains why feminism doesn’t give women a choice at all.

“Why is feminism indulging and demanding a consistent form of pop-culture propaganda? It boils down to one word — careerism. It’s becoming increasingly clear that the foremost object of modern feminism isn’t respecting and honoring the choices that real women make, but rather making sure that women make a certain kind of choice — to live with the same career- and action-dominant attitude that has prevailed in male culture for many thousands of years.”

Feminism’s desire is to turn women into men and men into women, plain and simple. They don’t like it when an older woman like me tries to encourage and convince younger women to be homemakers, bear children, be help meets to their husbands, and find joy in doing these things. No, this is completely against their agenda so they fight me on it every chance they get. They’re afraid I’m going to set women back a century or two and cause women to act like women (feminine) again. No, it’s not part of their agenda at all!

Godly women want nothing to do with ferocity and being ferocious; demanding their way, loud, and stubborn. They have no desire to be like men and do what men do: have careers that take them away from home all day to provide a living for their families. No, they want men to do this so they can stay home and care for their families and homes.

“To the extent that feminists portray this as the new ideal, they merely construct yet another ideological prison for women and young girls. Try as they might, modern feminists can’t turn girls into boys and boys into girls. They can, however, make members of both sexes miserable. That’s one thing the radicals do all too well.”

With the depression rate in women rising 400%, we all know that feminism is a big, fat failure and it makes no one happy at all. Let’s all go back to obeying the perfect Word of God and find contentment in our marriages, our children, and our homes, just where the Good Lord wants us to be.

For those of you who say you “have” to work and have no choice, do you trust God? Do you believe that His “commands are not burdensome”? Do you believe He is our Provider and that NOTHING is impossible with Him? If you answer “yes” to all of these questions, then why do you not trust God to provide for you so you can be home full time with your family?

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.
1 John 5:3

Prisoners In Our Homes and Marriages?

Prisoners In Our Homes and Marriages?

Yes, some feminists actually believe women are prisoners in their homes and marriages and they must fight to free us from our bondage. You don’t believe me? Here is what a one woman wrote as she shared one of my handwritten posts:

Yes, women are capable of determining what to do with their lives but for women who love the Lord, they want to make their decisions based upon His Word and not their “wants” as many are doing today. The reason many Christian women who work outside of the home are against you advocating for “gender equality” is because they are wise enough to know that God values women and men equally and they both have worth, but they aren’t the same which is what feminists are fighting for. There are many women who don’t want to be men. They like being women and don’t want sameness. We don’t want you advocating for us, because our homes and marriages aren’t prisons. They are God’s perfect will for us because He created them for us.

Has my marriage and being home full time for 32 years been prison for me? No, it has been a wonderful place to be! I have a husband who works hard so I can stay home. I live in a beautiful home. We raised four great children together. He was a wonderful father to them. When I was sick all of those years, I didn’t have to worry about going out to a job since he was my provider. He fixes many things in the home. He helps me often. Just yesterday, I had the freedom to go and pick up my one year old granddaughter to have for a few hours. I then took her over to my parent’s home for a while. They LOVE being with her. Here is my dad carrying her to the car for me. He never wanted my mom to work outside of the home, so he worked hard for many years so my mom could be home full time with us. He told me yesterday that there’s nothing more valuable than a mother home raising her children.

On Tuesday, a friend of mine called and asked if I wanted to go out to lunch with her so we did. Ken has never minded me going out with friends. He trusts me with money and has never said no to anything I’ve ever wanted to buy since he knows I’m not frivolous. I also have time now that my children are all grown up to teach younger women.

Whereas when I had a career, I had to make sure I was at work on time or I’d get in trouble. The stress level was high in order to perform, please my boss, parents, and do a good job. Many nights, I couldn’t sleep because I had some concerns about the next day and then trying to get through it on little sleep. By the end of the day, I was exhausted and had to spend my weekends cleaning, cooking, and shopping for food. Those years felt much more like a prison to me and all for a paycheck? No, thanks.

So, whoever you are, please don’t advocate for me because the more feminists advocate for “their rights” the worse it gets for women. Cultures haven’t gotten better since the women’s rights movement. They’ve gotten worse because children are no longer being raised by their mothers. In Australia, they are advocating for mothers to not even have the choice to stay home because it hurts their economy – not enough people to tax.

“But once a child goes to school, she argued, opting out of the workforce should no longer be an option.

‘Rather than wail about the supposed liberation in a woman’s right to choose to shun paid employment, we should make it a legal requirement that all parents of children of school-age or older are gainfully employed,’ Le Marquand wrote.”

This is what happens when people “hold the truth in unrighteousness” as the Apostle Paul wrote about in Romans 1. They hate God and refuse to live for Him so they rebel against His ways and everything that is good and right. Women, living in submission and yes, even obedience to your husbands isn’t prison. It’s good and godly. Feminists will gladly live in submission and obey their bosses but falsely belief it’s bondage with their husbands. Do you see the hypocrisy? They leave their homes all day for almighty mammon and their children in the care of others. This, too, is foolishness and chasing after the wind.

Should we be surprised that the single biggest factor that is causing Millennials to abandon their faith is the “breakdown of the family” which feminists are responsible for? No. God created us. He gave us roles to fulfill and He knows what’s best for us, which includes mothers raising their children full time and caring for their husbands and homes.

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,
do all to the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 10:31

Trying to Stay Visible as Keepers at Home

Trying to Stay Visible as Keepers at Home

The feminists movement of the 1960s began because women felt worthless and invisible. Feminists came along and urged mothers to leave their homes, find careers, make money and a name for themselves. An article written by Leslie Loftus attempts to explain the perplexities of trying to be a stay-at-home mom since feminism. “‘Stay-at-home mom’ became the preferred term for opt-out mothers everywhere precisely because it focused on the children. ‘Housewife’ was too focused on homes and husbands. We were defensive enough rationalizing wasting our education for our children—we weren’t even going to attempt rationalizing that for our marriages. We are women. We’ve got this not only without men, but in spite of them.”

Did you follow that? Feminism hasn’t made women’s life easier; it’s made it more complicated. Women have become ashamed to say they are focused on their homes and husbands but God commands they focus upon them. Focusing solely on the children, as many have done today, is destructive in so many ways, especially for the children and if it ruins marriages from neglect. Then there’s the issue of all the years gaining higher education and most likely careers, yet trying to justify all of this time and money spent when staying home full time with the children. Finally, there’s a dig against men as if men aren’t valuable asset to societies and women don’t need them.

Then when the children are all grown up and gone, the mothers feel invisible and have no idea what to do with themselves. (It happens that I just made a YouTube the other day called Spending My Days as an Older Woman without having a career.) I was one who went to higher education – five and a half years after graduating from high school. I also had a career as a school teacher for three and a half years after that until I was able to come home full time. I never thought to find my identity in my higher education or career. All I ever wanted to do in life was to be married and have children, even though I was steeped in the feminist movement. Schooling and careers never held any sway on me.

Our identities shouldn’t be found in what we decide to do any ways. They are found in Christ, who He says we are, and what He tells us to do. He made it easy for us, women, because He carefully spelled it out in His Word. We don’t need to get involved in “mommy wars” or try to find some false sense of “fulfillment” outside of the home that many women are chasing today.

Leslie also wrote,  “An associate dean of Stanford writes a book on how herding our kids in a higher education rat race stunts their growth, and yet we still persist.” I may have to read this book because I agree. Whether people know or love God or not, they are made in His image and He gave us an instruction manual. He has this to say about worldly wisdom: “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19).  Not every child, male or female, has to go for higher education! There are way more negatives to it these days than positives.

“I think much of the problem is that we bought into the Second Wave idea that the only valued work is paid work.” She’s right. God doesn’t say that making money is the be all and end all. In fact, He warns against the love of money. No, He commands we be Kingdom investors and what greater thing can there be than investing our lives into our husbands, children, and homes?

Her conclusion: “The narrative is this: if you don’t earn a paycheck—complete with Social Security and federal income tax withholding—then what you do is worthless. We secretly believe we are wasting our educations, and that we will be invisible in motherhood.” This right here summarizes the lies women have been fed for far too long. God created you and He created you to marry, bear children and guide the home. You are not invisible to Him and this is all that matters. You are doing Kingdom work.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.
Matthew 6:19, 20

“A Day Without Women” in the Workforce – Something to Celebrate!

“A Day Without Women” in the Workforce – Something to Celebrate!

Women today have become so foolish. They falsely believe that they have more value outside of the home rather than inside of it. They also falsely believe that feminism is what has brought women value; the right to vote, have careers, and be “equal” with men in every way. No, they weren’t being satisfied being women. They wanted to be men.

Feminism is NOT what has brought women value. It degrades women, overworks them, and leaves them more dissatisfied than ever before (the Women’s March proved this). “The elevation of women was in the early period of Christianity understood to be one of the glories of Christianity, yet like a century plant, the seeds of social change planted by the gospel were to take many generations to bear fruit. Nonetheless, within forty years after this writing these aims were beginning to be accomplished, as we see from Clement or Rome’s Epistle to the Corinthians, chapter 1: ‘Nobody could spend even a short while among you without noticing the excellence and constancy of your faith,’ especially among ‘your women-folk,’ who were becoming ‘patterns of discretion in every way.'” (Thomas Oden)

Women today are anything but discreet. Some definitions of being discreet: “careful not to cause embarrassment or attract a lot of attention.” A godly mother who is at home raising her children is discreet and she is doing a powerful work for the Lord. No, she doesn’t get a lot of attention or praise or earn an income, but if she is godly, kind, modest, and hard-working in her home, her husband and children will rise up and call her blessed! Her price is FAR above rubies.

“Work on human hearts and destinies to do imperishable work, to build within life’s fleeting hours monuments that shall last forever.” (S.C. Ferguson) Mothers are doing imperishable work when they invest their lives into their children full time. These little eternal souls live forever and life is fleeting. There is no better way to invest their time than doing this. No one can have a greater impact for good upon a child than their parents.

Another definition of being discreet: “careful and circumspect in one’s speech or actions.” Many women today are the opposite of this. You are called to “keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation” (1 Peter 2:12). You are commanded to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present age. Are you living this way? Are you obeying the Lord in what He has called you to do or have you been swept up with the feminist’s movement and the destruction of womanhood?

“We’ve seen what the world’s curriculum does in the lives of women and how it leaves them disordered and dysfunctional and distressed and in depression. I think it’s time we try God’s way. We see what can happen when we begin to educate and train women in the ways of God” (Nancy Wolgemuth).

Christianity, namely Christ, is what gives women value, not feminism, voting, careers, or making money. The best thing women could do today is quit their jobs and go home to take care of their husbands, children, and home. This is where they are most needed and most profitable. Don’t believe the lie that only rich women can stay home full time. Live simply and frugally within your husband’s income if need be and seek the Lord in wisdom. He is our provider and His commands are not burdensome.

“Love your husband, love your children. Stay home. That’s not an idea I came up with out of my head. That’s from Titus 2. Older women are to teach, encourage, do all that they possibly can to help the younger women to do these things. My objective is to simply point you back to the Word of God.”
from Elisabeth’s radio broadcast (Gateway to Joy) today

Let me end this post with a poem that was written by a retired minister from Tennessee.

I like the “Old Paths”, when Moms were at home.
Dads were at work. Brothers went into the army.
And sisters got married BEFORE having children!

Crime did not pay; Hard work did;
And people knew the difference.

Moms could cook; Dads would work; Children would behave..
Husbands were loving; Wives were supportive; And children were polite.

Women wore the jewelry; And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies; Men looked like gentlemen; And children looked decent.

People loved the truth, And hated a lie;
They came to church to get IN, Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly; Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal; And crying sounded sincere.

Cursing was wicked; Drinking was evil; and divorce was unthinkable.

The flag was honored; America was beautiful; And God was welcome!

We read the Bible in public; Prayed in school; And preached from house to house

To be called an American was worth dying for;
To be called a Christian was worth living for;
To be called a traitor was a shame!

Sex was a personal word. Homosexual was an unheard of word, And abortion was an illegal word.

Preachers preached because they had a message;
And Christians rejoiced because they had the VICTORY!
Preachers preached from the Bible; Singers sang from the heart; And sinners turned to the Lord to be SAVED!

A new birth meant a new life; Salvation meant a changed life; Following Christ led to eternal life.

Being a preacher meant you proclaimed the word of God;
Being a deacon meant you would serve the Lord;
Being a Christian meant you would live for Jesus;
And being a sinner meant someone was praying for you!

Laws were based on the Bible; Homes read the Bible;
And churches taught the Bible.

Preachers were more interested in new converts, Than new clothes and new cars.

God was worshiped; Christ was exalted; and the Holy Spirit was respected.

Church was where you found Christians on the Lord’s day, rather than in the garden, on the creek bank, on the golf course, or being entertained somewhere else.

I still like the Old Paths the best!

Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths,
where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.

Jeremiah 6:16

Feminists are Weak Women

Feminists are Weak Women

weak

Feminists are not strong women as they suppose. They are weak. Strong women don’t get offended at every little thing that disagrees with what they believe. “Modern feminists are afraid of life. They are afraid of differences of opinion, and especially afraid of men.”* Feminists women don’t have the strength to be submissive to their husband. It takes strength to obey our husbands and give up our desires for our husbands and allow them to be the leader of our home. Feminine, godly women have this strength from the Lord and they build up their home instead of tear it down as many are doing today.

Dennis Prager wrote a brilliant piece in the National Review called Feminism Make Women Weak. My favorite part of the entire article was the last paragraph. “You want to know what women are strong? Here’s an example: Any young woman who announced in a college class that as much as she may want a career, she is more interested in finding a good man to marry. In other words, any young woman who announced that she isn’t a feminist.” I wanted to stand up and shout, “YES!” God clearly states what godly young women will most likely want in life besides bringing glory to Him: to marry, bear children, and guide the home.

I wasn’t the least bit ashamed to tell people that I wanted to marry and have children when I was young. I had no interest in a career. “Well, what if you never meet a man who wants to marry you?” I was asked. I will pray and pray that the Lord will give me my heart’s desire. If He does not, I will glorify Him some other way, however, the majority of women do get married and this is a good thing since God created men to need a help meet. “Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man” (1 Corinthians 11:9) Women have forgotten what their purpose in marriage is supposed to be. They forget they are their husband’s help meet and instead, expect their husbands to make them happy.

“Most feminists have conflated equality and sameness. And that’s a huge mistake; the sexes are equal, but they are different.”*  I don’t want to be the same as men. I want to be a woman, just the way the Lord has made me.

Feminine women should understand the differences between the sexes. Men struggle with their sexual nature and this doesn’t make women better and men perverts. No, this is just the way they are. “The male desire to touch the bodies of just about every woman they are attracted to is — trigger warning here — normal. It has nothing to do with hatred of women or viewing women as unequal.”* Strong women can handle this knowledge and instead of being offended by it, we sympathize with men in their struggle knowing that our struggle is with our desire to control our husbands and with our emotional nature. Yes, we are different and we have different struggles. It shouldn’t offend us when we find out that men love women’s bodies. Good, mature men control their sexual nature just as good, mature women control their need to control their husbands and their emotional nature.

As feminine women, our strength isn’t in who we are or the fact that we are feminine, it comes from knowing who we are in Christ and loving the way He created us to be and the role He has given us to do. True strength isn’t fighting this but welcoming it and becoming women with gentle and quiet spirits who dress modestly, love and obey our husband, love our children, are good, chaste, discreet, sober, and keepers at home. Now, this right here is a definition of a strong woman. Her strength comes from the Lord because she could never do all of this on her own.

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

Proverbs 31:10, 11

*Dennis Prager quotes from article

The Future is Female?

The Future is Female?

Hillary Clinton has just made a video and she proudly proclaims that “the future is female!” Then she goes on to say how wonderful the Women’s March was last month. (You know, the one where women were bare chested with “NO GOD” printed on their chests, wearing vagina hats, and nailed bloody tampons to the wall.) “We need strong women to step out and speak up. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly…Set an example for every woman out there who worries if our rights, opportunities, and values will endure. And remember, you are the heroes, the history makers, and the glass ceiling breakers of the future…” 

The future is female. I sure hope it is not. We live in the wealthiest country that has ever existed. Hillary almost became president barring a miracle it seemed. Women are senators, in the military, and do almost whatever they want today. Being raised and living in this culture right now, we are the most blessed women anywhere in the world and have the most opportunities but they are still dissatisfied and angry.

As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. (Isaiah 3:12) God created men first and He created them to be the leaders: Patriarchs, Kings, Prophets, Apostles, Authors of the Bible, and Priests were all men. This is God’s perfect plan but Hillary and many like her want to rebel against everything that God says is good. This is the rebelliousness in women: to want to take control in marriages, churches, and in countries. Don’t fall for it, women. Fall in line with God’s perfect plan for you.

The rights women today are worried about being taken away are the rights to have their unborn babies murdered. Our constitution grants the right to life, yet the least and most innocent don’t have this right. This is a cruel and evil fact in our country right now. I have no idea what opportunities she was speaking about since women can do everything a man can do now practically speaking. What values is she speaking about? The right for government paid abortions, free birth control, LGBQT rights, and same sex marriage possibly? Theses values aren’t based upon the Word of God but upon a reprobate/depraved mind.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper. (Romans 1:28)

Do you see how her values and all those like her are in opposition to God’s values? A mother at home spending her life raising her children will have a much greater impact upon the next generation than anything Hillary proposes. This is why the Lord wants women to marry, bear children, and guide the home. He wants women raising their children in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord, meaning they are steeped in the Word of God, so there will be a strong and godly remnant for Him.

Jesus Christ has broken that glass ceiling for us, women. We have complete access to God the Father whenever we want to go to the throne room of grace. We don’t need godless women to do this for us in their God-forsaken way. We have all we need to live an abundant life because we have Jesus Christ who paid the penalty for our sin, filled us with His Spirit, and has given us many precious promises. Your work in your home with your children and as a help meet to your husband is beautiful in His sight. Never forget this. Turn off the lies of this culture and dig into the living and active Word of God.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.
Philippians 2:14, 15
