Look at the Big Picture, Women

Women tend to look at what worked for them rather than examining the big picture. This is why I am not a fan of the 19th amendment. I will give you a few examples.

College. Whenever I speak against college, undoubtedly there will be women who will tell me they met their husbands at college and have a back-up plan in case something happened to their husbands. This is great BUT look at the big picture! College has wreaked havoc upon many women. They become sexually promiscuous in college and many turn from the faith of the parents. Then they graduate with a ton of debt and carry that burden for many years.

Women owe two thirds of the $1.7 billion in student loan debt! This debt causes them to work if they have children and have strangers raise their children. In many cases, the husbands don’t want them to quit their jobs since their wives make more money than them, or their husbands decide they like the money their wives make. College is a HUGE trap that has caused great destruction to marriages, families, children, women, and our nation. THIS is the big picture!

Keepers at home. Women will tell me that their mothers were in the workforce, and they turned out fine. They use their own experience to justify why something is good rather than looking at the big picture. What is the big picture? Divorce has skyrocketed since women left their homes. Women are more depressed and suicidal than ever before. Children are being raised by strangers. Women are more stressed out than ever trying to juggle many balls. Wickedness is invading this land. Satan wants women out of their homes. THIS is the big picture. God wants women to be keepers at home.

Submission. Women cry abuse and try to convince me that submission causes abuse. This mostly comes from women who were actually abused by cruel men, or think they were abused by their husbands. Instead of seeing submission as a good thing in marriage since God ordained it and He is good, they attach their own experience to it and pronounce submission as bad. In every institution, there is an authority structure. If the man isn’t the leader in the home, the wife will be. Someone is always wearing the pants and in most homes, it’s the women. God intended the man to wear the pants and designated him as head of his wife and home. This leads to peace and order in the home when followed. THIS is the big picture!

Voting. Women come unglued when I try to convince them that giving women the right to vote has been so destructive to this nation. They try to convince me that they are Christian Conservatives, so it’s great for them to vote! Look at the big picture, women! Women overwhelmingly vote Democrat. There would have been few Democrat Presidents if any elected if women didn’t vote! Women vote for abortion and large government. These are both highly damaging to our nation. Men tend to see the big picture far better than women do. They see the damage that big government has done and is doing to this nation. THIS is the big picture!

Female preachers. “What about all of the people they have led to the Lord?” Women will give me all kinds of reasons and excuses for female preachers. They think they’re wonderful because they tickle their ears and make them feel good about themselves. All the female preachers have done is to water down the churches and the clear teachings of the Word. Women are now more easily deceived, since they aren’t learning truth. Yeah, female preachers can give truth once in awhile, but they are living in rebellion to God by doing what God forbids. God has ordained men to preach and teach the Word in the churches. This will grow up Christians strong in their faith and be prepared to be salt and light to this wicked generation. THIS is the big picture!

I could go on, but you get the point. Women, become wise. Study God’s Word. Look at the big picture. If you can’t see it, ask your husband! What’s good for you may be horrible for the Church and this nation. Seek to do good and what’s right, not what you think is simply good for you.

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
Titus 2:11,12

  1. The “gender gap” is not an intrinsic feature of women’s suffrage. Women got the right to vote in 1920. From 1920 through 1976, there was relatively little difference in how men and women voted. Sometimes women voted slightly more Republican than men; sometimes the opposite.

    Only in 1980 did women start consistently voting more Democratic than men. The size of the gap has gradually grown since 1980. 1996 was the first time a Democrat won the presidency without a plurality of the male vote. Since then, it has happened twice more – in 2012 and 2020.

    Women’s contemporary voting behavior is a product of the profound breakdown in marriage and family life that began during the 1960s. Strong marriages align the interests of men and women. Where marriage is weak or nonexistent, those interests diverge. Even in recent years, married women have voted more Republican than single men. The gender gap is mostly due to single women being VERY Democratic.

  2. God knows best! Young mothers are to be keepers at home! What started out as college for ‘just in case’ scenarios for women morphed into careers for women before and then after marriage, which morphed into continuing careers after children, which morphed into children being raised by strangers, which morphed into ridicule for the homemaking mother.

    As women have taken the men’s role as provider (or overshadowed it by earning more), men have struggled. The financial independence of women has fanned the divorce rate upward when they become discontent or unhappy. Men have suffered the loss of their children in divorce courts. We see that asserting independence has morphed into a rejection of home and family life.

    Both men and women now reject the idea of interdependence in marriage i.e., both acting responsibly and faithfully in differing roles with differing tasks which contribute to the overall well-being of all, especially the children. No one wants to be in a vulnerable position; trust between the sexes has been undermined. Now, many young people want to enjoy their lives WITHOUT marriage and children. The rate of stable marriages and births drops. All of society suffers! We need to see this big picture and the insidious, incremental steps which have taken us there.

  3. I agree with this so much. I’m going to a junior college but being driven to classes and not staying on campus simply to obey my parents and because I have free time. I’m getting a 2 year teachers certification. That way when I’m married if anything happens to my husband I can have a feminine job to be a helpmeet to him. I wish I didn’t have to go but it’s for peace and obedience with my parents.

    I love this post. Many women don’t see the big picture and I wish I could let them see things through my eyes. But alas. You can’t force people to do right. It’s sad because it’s for their good!

  4. Thank you, Lori! For being a light and speaking out against the wickedness that women are falling for. Your books, blog, and videos have been such an encouragement to me. I have been a Christian for a long time, I read my Bible, I pray… but I honestly didn’t take to heart the specific scriptures that God gave to women. I don’t know why I didn’t see it or keep it in my heart. I do know that in the southern Baptist and even independent Baptist church’s that I grew up in, these truths were never spoken or preached on. Your book along with Debi Pearls book on being a helpmeet honestly changed my life. I’m 31 years old, we’ve been married 13 years, we have 6 children(5 daughters)… and only the last 6 months or so have I turned my life around and started trying to be the woman that God has called me to be, Biblically. Please keep on doing what your doing and know that you are such an encouragement in this wicked world. I could go on but I’ll stop there… thank you so much! God bless you!

  5. Another thing I’ve noticed about women bosses is that they don’t seem to want men as employees. I have no data to back this up, but just observation. Men are scarce in schools these days. My teacher friend told me one day that she desperately wished more men would go into teaching and being principals because there are no male role models for boys there. She said that so many boys were already being raised by moms and grandmas that they see no men at all at work in a typical day. She felt that boys were being taught by example that they had no real purpose, that women did everything.

    I thought back to my childhood and only 1/7 of my principals was a woman. And in jr/Sr. High, my teachers were about half and half. In fact, possibly more men. If I recall, my science and math teachers were all men. Home Ec/Sewing/cooking were all women.

  6. I’ve read some of your posts and find your take refreshing. A topic I’d like you to consider for a future column: “Fathers and Brothers Should Vet Potential Suitors.” Given all the edge cases individuals use against traditional Christian practices, it’d be interesting to hear your view surrounding how it would benefit women.
