Did Feminism Help Women Own Property?

Did Feminism Help Women Own Property?

We often hear the praises of all of the wonderful things that feminism has accomplished for women. This was being passed around Facebook recently:

The fight for women to vote is tragic to me because all the women who fought to be able to vote were doing so because they felt they knew better than men (even though God made men the leaders) thus led to the superiority attitude of women in our culture which has been devastating. (Most sitcoms today freely mock men.) It was rebellion against God’s ordained authority.

I detest birth control since it has led to the slaughter of millions of babies and millions of others babies from being born since many couples today don’t even want children. Instead of trusting God for our childbearing, we are the ones who “plan and decide the best time”  to even have children.

Did they really help women own property and work for a salary? NO! The rumblings of feminism didn’t begin until 1843 and the fiercest advocates of it, like Betty Friedan, weren’t even born until 1921. Here is what I found about the timing of women being able to own property and work for a salary:

According to this article, “Over several decades, beginning in 1839, statutes that enabled women to control real and personal property, participate in contracts and lawsuits, inherit independently of their husbands, work for a salary, and write wills were enacted. Usually, concerns for family integrity and protecting a household from economic crisis, rather than a liberal conception of the role of women in society, motivated these changes.”

Did you notice that last sentence? Feminism had nothing whatsoever to do with these things! From my study of feminism and women’s rights, their main goals were to get women out of their homes and into the workforce, destroy marriages, put children in daycare and government-run schools, make divorce easy, and literally tear down marriage and families. This was “freedom” in their minds!

I am one of the “most anti-feminist 21st century woman” and anything that comes from protest, social unrest, activism, and resistance by women has nothing whatsoever to do with biblical womanhood. God calls us to have meek and quiet spirits and reminds us that godliness with contentment is great gain. No, thank you, feminists. Life was much better for everyone before you fought for “women’s rights.” They sure weren’t mine.

But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
1 Peter 3:4

Founders of Feminism Had Reprobate Minds

Founders of Feminism Had Reprobate Minds

Christian women are floundering today. They have no idea what they are supposed to do with their lives? Should they work after having children or be home full time? But if they don’t work outside of the home, they will probably get bored and won’t make any money so they will feel useless. Oh, what should they do?

Mark Taspon did an interview with Mallory Millet who is the sister of Kate Millet. Kate is one of the founders of the second wave of feminism. Mallory admits that Kate was mentally ill and was a terror to live with. “I was with them at that table as they founded the Women’s Movement and NOW. The entire stated point of their activities was to destroy the American family and with that, Western Civilization. Is this not crazy? They were tooth-grittingly determined.

“They were driven by destruction and deeply violent impulses toward men and the patriarchy. Their goal? To establish a matriarchy in order to end all war because that’s what men do, wage war. They believed that if women ran everything there would be no more war. In their madness they have conspired to destroy masculinity, drugging our little boys while trying to remake them into little girls and thus, emboldening our enemies who now see us as easy pickings. No nation is easier to overwhelm than one which has feminized the men and put females at the head of the tribe. Matriarchies never survive – never have, never will!”

God tells us that those who “hold the truth in unrighteousness” (they know the truth but rebel against it) are given over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1). Reprobate means “a person abandoned to sin; one lost to virtue and religion.” This completely describes the founders of feminism since they were against all of God’s beautiful ways and they deceived women, even Christian women, into believing that leaving their homes all day and their children in the care of others is best.

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12).

Instead of following culture and the lies of the mentally ill, young women should consider this when making life decisions:“If all mothers based their choices on whether to return to work by asking the questions, ‘What does the Bible say?’ and ‘What is best for my child spiritually?’ different choices would be made” (Judy Turner). What does the Bible say? It commands young women to love their children and be keepers at home. What is best for their children spiritually? To train them up in the ways of the Lord and hide God’s Word deeply in their hearts when they rise up, walk along the way, and go to bed.

Christian women need to wake up and understand that they need to stop following women who had and have reprobate minds and begin following Jesus and His ways instead. Our culture is a mess and it’s because women have left their God-ordained roles at home and pursued their own selfish gain at the expense of their children.

For those who want to give me all of the exceptions and “what ifs…,” gain some wisdom from Nancy Campbell: “Are we going to base our lives on what ‘might happen’ and be tortured by the ‘sound of fears,’ or are we going to trust in God, who is sure, steadfast, and able to deliver us in any situation?” He tells us that His commands are not burdensome and He is our provider.

From the article above (which I encourage you to read): “My thesis is this: when men ran the world and women ran society we had a chance to conduct our lives in some semblance of balance, but women have abdicated their running of society and thus, it has collapsed dramatically. Women forced their way into the running-the-world deal and now we have a world gone mad. And the beautiful society which we Western women built is in tatters. Moms decided they were the same as men so they deserted the home and babies to grab their briefcases and rush out to run the world.”

Let this not be said of us, women. Go back to the ancient paths, the perfect paths, that God created for you and find rest for your souls which many refuse to walk on.

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. But they said, We will not walk therein.
Jeremiah 6:16

Another Christian College Rejects Scripture for Feminism

Another Christian College Rejects Scripture for Feminism

My husband and I graduated from Westmont College in 1980. During our time as students, there were no female Bible professors. Robert Gundry was our Bible teacher at the time and was very well known. His position has just been filled by a woman named Sandra Richter. She wrote a post against what John Piper had to say concerning women professors at seminaries. Here is what she wrote. (Now, remember, she is going to be teaching the Bible at a Christian University.):

“I keep finding my name posted all over Facebook in response to John Piper’s latest presentation on why women are not allowed to pursue their gifting to teach and preach. I have a lot of respect for John Piper. He has accomplished some amazing things for the Kingdom. But his exegesis on this point has been shaped (and distorted) by his culture, not the cultures of the New or Old Testaments. Reality is, that the Holy Spirit is the head of the Church–not any organization designed by humanity. And according to 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4, it is the Lord Holy Spirit who gets to choose to gift whomever he pleases–Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female. I am grateful for the accountability that ordination boards keep in our systems. I am grateful for John Piper’s high view of Scripture. And I thank God that there is gate keeping going on as regards who moves into the role of shepherd.”

First of all, women not speaking in the church has nothing to do with cultures. It comes from the beginning of time since the reasons for these commands were that Adam was created first and the woman was deceived. The Bible is clear concerning who shall teach men and be in authority over them in 1 Corinthians 14:34, 35 and 1 Timothy 2:11-14. The Holy Spirit would never act contrary to the principles in God’s Word nor override them. When Paul wrote about Jew, Greek, slave, male, and female, he was referring to the fact that ALL who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved.

“But Brother Piper, I’ll take you on any day on this topic. Deborah was not a mistake. Huldah was Prophet. Junia was not a man. Romans 16 is not an anomaly. Priscilla was a preacher. And the women prophesying in 1 Corinthians 11 were exercising the most treasured and authoritative gift of their known covenant. This all in a culture where dowries and bride prices were the norm, women were still required to cover their heads, children belonged to their fathers, and the legal and economic systems rarely recognized a woman’s right to any voice or influence. If she is called and gifted, Church, it is your job to recognize that gift, develop that gift, and deploy that gift. This isn’t your Kingdom, it is His.”

Now, I’ve not attended any theological seminaries nor do I have a doctorate like Richter does but her assessments are wrong. Deborah was not teaching men the Word of God in a church since the Church wasn’t established yet. She was a woman in the Old Testament during a time when Israel was rebellious to the ways of the Lord. She’s not a prescription for the women in the Church age. Deborah was a description of a judge thousands of years ago.

Huldah was a prophetess in the Old Testament. She didn’t teach doctrine to men nor was she in authority over them. She gave King Josiah a special word from the Lord. We are never told in the New Testament to try to become a Deborah nor a Huldah.

Junia was a man according to my Bible. “Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me” (Romans 16:7). I believe the word “kinsmen” means that Junia was indeed a man. Even if he was a woman, as Richter claims, he was “of note among the apostles” NOT an apostle. God didn’t choose any female apostles.

The Bible does not say that Priscilla was a preacher. This is such an unbelievable stretch of the Word of God. There’s nowhere that she is recorded as preaching a sermon, teaching men (except one man that was mentioned when she was with her husband who most likely did the teaching), nor being in authority over men. She was married to Aquila and their names are often mentioned together. They helped the Apostle Paul in his ministry.

The women in 1 Corinthians 11 are not instructed to preach or teach men nor be in authority over them. They aren’t to prophesy in the church since this is forbidden and just a few chapters after this, Paul wrote: “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church” (1 Corinthians 14:34, 35). He would not have contradicted himself in such a way as Richter claims.

My husband, Ken, responded personally to Richter this way: I wish you would take Piper on in an in-depth discussion of this topic instead of appealing to a weak string of examples of women in ministry to overturn the clear precepts against women teaching in the church, as is clearly given in Scriptures. “I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet” (1 Timothy 2:12); and that an elder is to be “the husband of one wife,” etc. The actual mandates are many, yet you want to destroy them with a few crumbs of examples?

Is it possible that God wants Christian women in teaching ministry in the church? If so, you will not find this from anything written in the Word, but to the contrary, it is found in a new feminist culture. It is not Piper whose interpretation is lost in culture, but you are.

You and others have proposed a dangerous hypothesis that goes contrary to all of Church teaching and history until now, and goes against what the Word actually says. You postulate that because God can do anything He chooses He will go against His own Word on the matter. That the apostles’ instructions to the church were only cultural; a relic of the early NT times that God somehow thought best to keep in place in His church until now.

And where is your basis for knowledge and truth? A simple presupposition, an argument from silence, with zero proof, which goes against what God’s Word actually says.

What a coincidence that it comes just as feminism takes its roots in our culture. Is the Church to influence culture or is culture to influence the Church? I believe that question was settled long ago by Jesus himself when He said, “If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you” (John 15:19). Hmm… given the accolades it seems the world is loving this now.

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 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 fromthe things which are written in this book.
Revelation 22:18, 19

“Obey Your Husband” Isn’t Biblical?

“Obey Your Husband” Isn’t Biblical?

Many Jezebels found my post The Jezebels Among Us and naturally despised it. I received many hateful and twisted comments on my Facebook page. I chose one to show you the lies they perpetuate upon “Christian” women today. In this first part, this woman quotes me first, then proceeds to explain how wrong I am.

“‘You won’t hear them teaching about submitting to and obeying their husbands or being keepers at home.’ Well yeah, because to preach THAT that would be Jezebellic, as in, rebellion towards God, distorting and polluting the Word of God to uphold a perverse, carnal, ungodly culture. They wouldn’t preach distortions like ‘obey your husband’ because that is not Biblical, it’s a cultural warping of God’s holy Word. But what you *would* hear ‘them’ preaching is what the Bible actually says: to be filled with the Spirit, to submit to one another out of reverence to Christ, and therefore, to love and respect one another. And who exactly do they teach that you should obey? They teach what the Bible says: to obey the commandments of Jesus because we love him and are not only his servants but his friends, to love one another because we are his disciples.”

I hope you are all easily able to tell the lies in her statement. The first part is clearly lies and has no basis for biblical truth. The second part is truth and comes from the Word of God. This is what false teachers do. They take a little bit of truth and mix it up with lies and come out with deceptions.

She believes that submitting to and obeying our husbands and being keepers at home is upholding a “perverse, carnal, and ungodly culture.” She, along with many others like her, carefully pick and choose what they want to obey. God clearly states that women are to obey their husbands in His Word. Titus 2:5 tells us that younger women are to be “obedient to their husbands.” Yes, most versions use the word “submit” but if you go to 1 Peter 3:6 all versions say, “Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.” Yes, we are Sara’s daughters, if we love the Lord, and obey our husband, as Sara did, without being afraid because we trust in the Almighty God and His ways.

This woman is correct that we are to be filled with the Spirit and submit to one another but then she fails to explain who submits to who. Right after we are told to submit to one another (Ephesians 5:21), wives are commanded to submit to their husband (Ephesians 5:22). Husbands are told to submit to Christ by laying their lives down for their wives (Ephesians 5:25).  Children are to submit to parents (Ephesians 6:1) and servants obey their masters (Ephesians 6:5) yet she conveniently left out all of these verses. These are the “commandments of Jesus.”

Many today only teach the easy verses and fail to teach the harder and unpopular ones. They are teachers who will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3, 4). Their made-up god is all about love but never about justice or giving the hard truths.

As women, we need to be especially careful about deception. If perfect Eve could be deceived, so can we. We must hide God’s Word in our heart “that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive” (Ephesians 4:14). What this woman wrote sounds relatively good but it’s not. It’s part truth with a lot of deception. This is so common today that we must daily put on the full armor of God, including the “sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17).

What she is teaching is perverse, carnal, and ungodly because she picks and chooses what she wants to believe instead of believing all of God’s Word and trusting that His ways are perfect for her. Yes, it takes a strong woman of God to live in submission and obedience to her husband. It also takes a woman who lays aside her “dreams and goals” to willingly and cheerfully stay home and raise the children that the Lord has blessed her with. These are what pleases the Lord and what He asks us to do despite what the Jezebels of our day teach and believe.

“I Wish I Were a Man”

“I Wish I Were a Man”

We watched “Queen Victoria” last night and soon after she found out she was pregnant with her second child, just months after giving birth to her first child, she said, “There are times that I wish I were a man.” There’s another woman in the show who is a brilliant mathematician who has three children and said the same exact thing to Queen Victoria a short time later.

Both of these women wished they were men because they didn’t like the inconvenience of having children. The children got in the way of what they wanted to do. Queen Victoria was much more interested in running her country and the mathematician was much more interested in inventing things than having children but back in those days there was no birth control so women could not prevent having children.

This show is based on a true story and from history we know that Queen Victoria had nine children. From the show, at least, she’s certainly not excited about having children. She spends little time with them because running the country is so much more important even though she’s married to a very capable man. This situation makes it tough, too, because she knows she’s supposed to submit to her husband but she’s queen. Oh, the pain of being a woman!

One can easily see how feminism took off so rapidly. I am sure these two women weren’t alone in feeling that they wish they were men. So once birth control came on the scene, women were no longer burdened with having children. They could prevent having babies but if by chance they got pregnant, they could have them murdered in their womb. Now, they could go out into the world and pursue their own goals and dreams

I have never wanted to be a man in my entire life! I love being a woman. I loved the fact that I could have children, that they “interfered” with my life, and I was able to stay home full time and be the one to raise them. There’s nothing else I would rather do. I have no interest in running a country, inventing anything, or being at a job in submission to a boss for eight hours a day. I love being home!

A woman being in leadership positions, as the Queen was, made for a lot of contention in her marriage. Since she knew she was supposed to submit to her husband, she had no idea how she was supposed to be Queen over him and it caused a lot of strife in their marriage.

All throughout the Bible, God had men in leadership positions. It’s impossible for a Queen to run a country and live in submission to her husband at the same time, especially when her husband has some different ideas on how to run the country. A woman is just as capable as a man to run a country, yet God knew that it’s best for men to be the ones in authority, especially since most women would be mothers IF it weren’t for birth control and the preventing of having children.

Enjoy being a woman, women. Count your children as a “sacrifice and a blessing” as one woman told Queen Victoria. God created us to have babies and be home with them. It’s His perfect will for us. He made men with their role and women with their role. Don’t rebel against it but be thankful because it is good.

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
Mark 10:6

Misuse of Patriarchy and Misogyny

Misuse of Patriarchy and Misogyny

As I wrote on Sunday, there’s an all-out war on men. Some women think they’re better than men so they need to begin taking control over everything. Matt Damon said in an interview with ABC New that men are being lumped into “one big bucket” when in reality there is a “spectrum of behavior. You know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?…Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”

As can be expected, some women were in an uproar over these comments. Alyssa Milano “rejected attempts to categorize various forms of sexual misconduct. ‘They all hurt. And they are all connected to a patriarchy intertwined with normalized, accepted – even welcomed – misogyny.'” Many people would not even understand what she meant by this!

She believes that all forms of sexual misconduct are wrong and I agree but patting a woman on the butt is an entirely different thing than rape or child molestation and you would have to lack ALL wisdom to not understand this concept. Being patted on the butt isn’t something that would cause long-term pain as the other two would. No, men shouldn’t go around patting women on the butt but men are attracted to women’s bodies. It’s a fact of life and has nothing whatsoever to do with patriarchy and misogyny. It’s the way men are built and women won’t be able to change this no matter how hard they try. Men will never be women.

All patriarchy means is “the father and ruler of a family” as described in the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary which is biblical. The husband is the head over his wife, thus the leader of his immediate family. Now, Wikipedia defines it this way. “In sociology, patriarchy is a social system in which males hold primary power and predominate in roles of political leadership and moral authority. In the domain of the family, fathers or father-figures hold authority over women and children.” Even with the newer definition, this definition is not necessarily wrong since men are naturally created to lead and be in authority.

Men are created to take on the stress of working outside of the home, providing for their families, and being leaders. This is why God gave them ten times more testosterone than He gave women. Men tend to think more logically and less emotionally than women which is a good thing for being leaders. Their bodies are more rugged, stronger, and built for the stress of leadership positions and women’s are not. Women are built more emotional and sensitive in order to be home raising children. Women were never created emotionally or physically to take on the responsibility that men have been given.

But men being in leadership positions isn’t what causes sexual harassment, rape, and child molestation. No, what causes these things is sin. Yes, men have strong sexual natures which God gave them but just like everything, when they are kept under control and in marriage, it is good since this is needed to carry on the generations and bond men with their wives but when it is not kept in control, bad things happen just as with all sin. But there have been many men in leadership positions from fathers all the way up to presidents who have not sexually abused women in any way.

Misogyny means “hatred of the female sex.” Is this what causes men to pat women on the butt? No, it’s their desire for the opposite sex and it’s a normal desire. Are rape and child molestation a hatred of the female sex? Some men who do these things may hate women (we can’t know their motive for sure) but mostly, they come from those who have not taken control of their sexual desire but instead allowed it to run rampant and into evil.

All of this blame going on by some women towards all men and throwing out names like patriarchy and misogyny is simply another way for them to gain control since they falsely believe they should be in control of everything. I pray it never happens. Support and praise the good men around you, women. They need it.

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall beto thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. To Adam he said,…In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground.
Genesis 3:16-19

***A woman on Facebook asked if I have ever written a post for the women who have been sexual harassed or abused. Yes, I have. God can heal and transform anyone no matter how deep the pain.

Kicking Men Out of Our Culture

Kicking Men Out of Our Culture

As we all hear of all of these sexual harassment claims against men, we can easily deduct what is happening. It’s an all-out war on men. Women think they’re better than men so they need to begin taking over everything. President Obama even said, “We need to elect more women because ‘men seem to be having problems.'” 

Then there’s news that another ceremony, where Hollywood continues to congratulate and worship itself with yet more awards, is going to be run by only women:

The 2018 SAG Awards will be be presented by an all female lineup because women are awesome. “Like many award ceremonies, the SAG Awards usually pairs a man and a women to announce each winner—but this year, only women will have that honor. The lineup is yet to be announced, but the ceremony, which has never before had an emcee, will be hosted by Kristen Bell. The nominations were also announced by women, with Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash revealing the nominees Wednesday morning alongside SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris, awards committee chair JoBeth Williams, and awards committee member Elizabeth McLaughlin.

“Men will still be allowed on the stage sometimes, like when they win an award, but with female-heavy ensemble casts nominated for Lady Bird, The Handmaid’s Tale, GLOW, and Orange Is the New Black, hopefully we won’t have to see more than a dozen suits on stage for the evening.”

The feminists’ evil agenda is now coming to fruition. “The end of marriage is necessary for the liberation of women. Therefore, it is important for us to encourage women to leave their husbands and to not live individually with men. All of history must be rewritten in terms of oppression of women. We must go back to ancient female religions like witchcraft.” (The Declaration of Feminism, November 1971)

These women act as if they’re being oppressed and completely innocent in everything, therefore, they must be in control of everything. The Bible states something completely different. “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) The same old rebellious spirit that Eve had when she ate the forbidden fruit is still alive and active today. What must we do to counteract this evil mindset?

We must do as the Apostle Paul commanded the women to do in the wicked culture in which he lived and wrote the letter to Titus, since there’s nothing new under the sun. “The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things. That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” (Titus 2:3-5).

Don’t fall into the trap that these feminists have fallen into. Yes, there are men who do bad things but there are plenty of women who do bad things as well. They are the ones who are divorcing their husbands in greater number. They are the ones who are willingly and freely giving sex to men without the covenant of marriage. They are the ones who are dressing immodestly and being entertained by movies like Fifty Shades of Gray. They are the ones who are leaving their children in the care of others to raise, if they are even having children.

Be sober, women. You don’t need alcohol to get you through the day. Be sober-minded and make right judgements based upon the Word of God. Love your husbands and children deeply. Study 1 Corinthians 13 to study what love means. (It’s not feelings based.) Be discreet in your actions and act like feminine godly women even in your home. Wait until marriage to have any sexual relations and then don’t deprive your husbands. Be keepers at home and minister to your family and all who enter into your home. Be good. Choose to do good and to be good since Christ lives mightily within you. Finally, be obedient to your husband; for this pleases the Lord.

These are God’s perfect instructions for you. Obey them and be a light to all those around you. Show them the beauty of God’s perfect ways amidst this wicked and adulterous generation.

Marching for Social Justice Isn’t What God Asks of Us

Marching for Social Justice Isn’t What God Asks of Us

There’s going to be a Women’s March in Los Angeles in January so I looked it up to see what they are marching for. Here is what it stated: “At Women’s March LA Foundation, we recognize that there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all. Our event on January 20th will feature music, art, community booths, and speakers in a shared voice of resistance with advocacy aligned with the national Women’s March Unity Principles: ending violence, protection of reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers’ rights, civil rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, Indigenous people’s rights and environmental justice.”

I guess these women never had a dad like Ken who gave them a long lecture on life NOT being fair when they were young so we never heard our children say, “That isn’t fair!” They grew up knowing that life wasn’t fair but they know God is a just God and will have the final say.

This is what Voddie Baucham wrote about social justice: “If the social justice movement went by its actual name, young Christians would not have been lured into it. Because the social justice movement is actually Cultural Marxism. There’s no such thing as ‘social justice,’ people. In fact, in the Bible, justice never has an adjective. There’s justice and there’s injustice, but there’s not different kinds of justice.”

As godly women, we aren’t called to march for our rights or for social justice since it’s a made up word by those who hate God. God never told us to go out and change culture. He told us to go out and share the Good News and speak the truth in love while individually helping those in need. People need Jesus. They don’t need more “rights.” They need the hope only Christ provides.

Most feminists are never satisfied and will never be happy. They continue to expect more instead of being thankful for what they have. Remember, being unthankful is one of the first steps towards being turned over to a reprobate mind according to Romans 1. These women marching falsely believe that there is “no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all.” No, there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all without Jesus Christ. They are marching for the wrong thing.

As women, He calls us to have the opposite of marching for what we want; He has called us to have meek and quiet spirits and to quietly work hard with our hands at home as keepers at home. “And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you” (1 Thessalonians 4:11). Did you notice that we must study to be quiet? It doesn’t come naturally. We are to do our own business at home and not involve ourselves with other’s business. This is the life the Lord has ordained for us, women, and it is good. This brings Him glory!

I love how often in God’s Word that He instructs us about being quiet. “In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15) not in fighting for what we want. “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee” (Isaiah 26:3). These women who march will find no peace even if they get the rights they are marching for. Perfect peace only comes from the Lord and keeping our minds stayed upon Him.

“And the work of righteousness shall be peace, and the effect of righteousness quietness…And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation and in sure dwellings and in quiet resting places” (Isaiah 32:17, 18). Expectations, wants, and rights don’t accomplish what is best. Peace and quietness is what is best and it only comes from being clothed in Christ’s righteousness and doing what He has called us to do. Godliness with contentment is great gain. These women marchers are not content and never will be because they are trying to find satisfaction and “fairness” on this earth. It won’t happen. It’s only found in Christ. “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Genesis 18:25)

Being on our knees and praying to the King of Kings while being salt and light in a dark culture will accomplish much more than any march because eternity is what matters. This life is a blip on the whole of eternity so let’s be women who use our time wisely and obey what the Lord has called us to do.

That we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
1 Timothy 2:2

Feminism Hits Petticoat Junction

Feminism Hits Petticoat Junction

One woman shared a YouTube of an episode from Petticoat Junction that was broadcast in the late 1960s. It’s such a clear picture of the convoluted nature of feminism. I am going to write out some of the conversation for you. It’s about one of the sisters, Billy Jo, whose been in Chicago for six weeks and the other sisters, Bobbi Jo and Betty Jo, are busy around the home getting ready for her arrival.

Billy Jo’s boyfriend, Jerry, picks her up from the train station and she comes out of the train dressed in a man’s suit! No one likes it at all. It reminds me of the emperor with no clothes! She has been brainwashed by the feminist movement and some of the things her sisters and mother, Kate, say to her are classic and would NEVER be allowed on television today!

Billy Jo states that women have the “menial jobs” while the men have the the high paying jobs.

One sister asks, “What are we going to do about it?”

Billy Jo responds, “Fight!”

The other sister, “That doesn’t sound very ladylike.”

Billy Jo: “That’s another thing, we are not ladies, we’re women. Lady is a term coined by men to restrict us. ‘A lady doesn’t do this. A lady doesn’t do that.’ We’re all the same. We’re all equal!”

The very pretty, feminine mother: “Well, actually we are different. It’s the way it’s supposed to be otherwise God wouldn’t have created both men and women.”

Billy Jo when asked how to accomplish this feminism: “Assume all of the prerogatives of men. We’ll even stand alone if necessary. The more militant members of the organization recommend complete segregation from men.”

Kate, the mother: “Complete segregation? You mean even including sex and marriage?”

Billy Jo: “Everything!”

One sister raises her hand and proclaims, “No way!”

The other sister: “I agree. I mean if we’re not going to marry men, who else is there?”

Mother: “Billy Jo, may I ask you a question? What does Jerry think of all this? The dream man? The number one? The one who made those six long weeks in Chicago bearable?”

Billy Jo, “Oh him…”

Mother, “That’s enough. Those two words tell it all.”

The rest of this episode shows the ugliness and utter stupidity of feminism.  The devastating effects of feminism are seen on marriages and relationships between men and women as the women used manipulation, pouting, and aggressiveness to get what they want. Watch it and weep for our nation and how blinded even Christian woman have become to the truth of God’s Word and His ways all because the emperor (feminism) had no clothes on but made everyone think he (feminists) did. Feminism takes away all femininity from women and makes them masculine. (The show did end good, however, unlike our culture, since all of the women decided they liked being feminine and treated like a lady by the men! They didn’t enjoy being men and treated like men.)

The final result of feminism: “London Women would rather have DOGS (and Netflix) than kids & NEVER want to be married.” Feminism = Unhappy Life

But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
1 Peter 3:4

Feminism: Not One Biblical Accomplishment

Feminism: Not One Biblical Accomplishment

Feminism hasn’t accomplished one thing that is biblical, not one. The right for women to vote isn’t biblical. God created men to be the leaders and as soon as women began to vote, they began to promote the idea that women knew better than men and that they could lead better than men. Feminism began the worship of women and hatred of men.

Feminism promoted birth control and abortion. God calls children gifts and blessings. He wants us to be fruitful and multiply. Now, most Christians even have no problem using birth control and only having a few children. Since feminism, children have become a hindrance and inconvenience. Many women value their careers and “me time” over having precious children and being home full time to raise them in the Lord.

Feminism has promoted women speaking in the church. God commands that women be silent in the church and even states that it’s a shame for women to speak in the church (1 Corinthians 14:35). Now, we have all these women “preachers” who travel around and have no problem being shameful and speaking in the churches. There are now women song leaders who have no problem praying and having mini sermons between songs. Why do women have to give announcements when men could do it just as easily? Feminism. No, women are no longer silent in the churches.

Feminism has promoted divorce and attacked marriage and the traditional family. If a woman isn’t “happy” she can divorce her husband and try to find a man that will make her happy. Unfortunately, she takes herself with her. Happiness is a choice. It doesn’t come from someone else or our circumstances.  

Feminism has promoted broken families and broken children. Women insisted on leaving their homes and their children in the care of others so they could “pursue their passions” and have left insecure and emotionally unstable children in their path.

Feminism promoted immodesty and affairs. It turned women into sex objects as they burned their bras, fled their homes, and worked among men all day long in submission to men who were not their husbands.

Feminism has promoted ill-health and a fast food nation. Women are too busy pursuing what they want and have no desire to work hard in their kitchens making nutritious food for their families. Everything is for convenience sake now and not for what’s best. More children are overweight than ever before. They are getting diseases that used to be found only in adults.

Feminism has promoted women in high places. Women are now governors, mayors, senators, and CEOs and many of them are leaving their children in the care of strangers. God made men in all of the high places. He made them the kings, priests, prophets, patriarchs, disciples, elders, and deacons. God created men to be the leaders of nations, churches, and families, not women!

I am reading a book about menopause and hormone replacement and the author, Dr. John Lee, shares why he believed that hormone replacement became popular in the late 1950s. “The burgeoning awareness in American industry that the media could be easily manipulated to push their products took place in a cultural milieu that placed an emphasis on the nuclear family, with the father out earning a living and the mother at home with a baby on her hip and a batch of cookies in the oven…Women were thought to be at their best pleasing their husbands sexually and raising healthy, happy children.”

Yes, this is how life was for most women back then. If instead of being taught discontentment by feminism in this important role, do you not think most women would have stayed content at home if they were taught it was the best and healthiest place for them to be for their families and were not given feminist options that promised women “freedom” from the shackles of marriage, children, and the home? True freedom is only found in Christ and His ways.

Can you honestly say that women are more happy today divorced, single, raising children on their own, working for hours every day outside of their home, having abortions that cause mental anguish, taking birth control that messes up their bodies, eating fast food on the run, listening to lukewarm female preachers, and having more health problems and more depressed than ever before?

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. But they said, We will not walk therein.
Jeremiah 6:16
