The Right to Vote Gives the Right to Be Elected

The Right to Vote Gives the Right to Be Elected

Amelia Barr was a mother, widow, and writer. She lived from 1831 to 1919. I found out about her from Elizabeth Prata on her blog The End Times. Amelia wrote a piece called Discontented Women. Elizabeth used the parts of the piece concerning the discontentment women naturally have towards marriage, having children, and being homemakers.

It’s not an easy piece to read since it was written long ago but well worth reading. I am sharing some excerpts that have to do with what Amelia thought about the Suffrage movement, women in public offices, and where she thought it would lead. She was a wise woman with a lot of insight. She knew the female nature and that God had made men to be the rulers and leaders. She saw the trouble where women voting would lead, and she is 100 percent correct. She predicted the demise of this nation when women began voting and becoming involved in politics. Just look at the majority of women as mayors, in Congress, and in the Senate! They are radical Leftists. (I am going to highlight a couple of sentences that really caught my eye.)

“The discontent of working-women is understandable, but it is a wide jump from the woman discontented about her work or wages to the woman discontented about her political position. Of all the shrill complainers that vex the ears of mortals, there are none so foolish as the women who have discovered that the founders of our republic left their work half finished, and that the better half remains for them to do.

“While more practical and sensible women are trying to put their kitchens, nurseries, and drawing-rooms in order, and to clothe themselves rationally, this class of discontents are dabbling in the gravest national and economic questions. Possessed by a restless discontent with their appointed sphere and its duties, and forcing themselves to the front in order to ventilate their theories and show the quality of their brains, they demand the right of suffrage as the symbol and guarantee of all other rights.

“This is their cardinal point, though it naturally follows that the right to elect contains the right to be elected. If this result be gained, even women whose minds are not taken up with the things of the State, but who are simply housewives and mothers, may easily predicate a few of such results as are particularly plain to the feminine intellect and observation. The first of these would be an entirely new set of agitators, who would use means quite foreign to male intelligence.

“For instance, every favorite priest and preacher would gain enormously in influence and power; for the ecclesiastical zeal which now expends itself in fairs and testimonials would then expend itself in the securing of votes in whatever direction they were instructed to secure them. It might even end in the introduction of the clerical element into our great political Council Chambers, the bishops in the House of Lords would be a sufficient precedent, and a great many women would really believe that the charming rhetoric of the pulpit would infuse a higher tone in legislative assemblies.

“Again, most women would be in favor of helping any picturesque nationality, without regard to the Monroe doctrine, or the state of the finances, or the needs of the market. Most women would think it a good action to sacrifice their party for a friend. Most women would change their politics, if they saw it to be their interest to do so, without a moment’s hesitation. Most women would refuse the primary obligation on which all franchises rest, that is, to defend their country by force of arms, if necessary. And if a majority of women passed a law which the majority of men felt themselves justified in resisting by physical force, what would women do? Such a position in sequence of female suffrage is not beyond probability, and yet if it happened, not only one law, but all law would be in danger.

“No one denies that women have suffered, and do yet suffer, from grave political and social disabilities, but during the last fifty years much has been continually done for their relief, and there is no question but that the future will give all that can be reasonably desired. Time and Justice are friends, though there are many moments that are opposed to Justice. But all such innovations should imitate Time, which does not wrench and tear, but detaches and wears slowly away. Development, growth, completion, is the natural and best advancement. We do not progress by going over precipices, nor re-model and improve our houses by digging under the foundations.

Finally, women cannot get behind or beyond their nature, and their nature is to substitute sentiment for reason, a sweet and not unlovely characteristic in womanly ways and places; yet reason, on the whole, is considered a desirable necessity in politics. At the Chicago Fair, and at other convocations, it has been proven that the strongest-minded women, though familiar with platforms, and deep in the “dismal science” of political economy, when it came to disputing, were no more philosophical than the simplest housewife. Tears and hysteria came just as naturally to them as if the whole world wagged by impulse only; yet a public meeting in which feeling and tears superseded reason and argument would in no event inspire either confidence or respect.

“Women may cease to be women, but they can never learn to be men, and feminine softness and grace can never do the work of the virile virtues of men. Very fortunately this class of discontented women have not yet been able to endanger existing conditions by combinations analogous to trades-unions; nor is it likely they ever will; because it is doubtful if women, under any circumstances, could combine at all. Certain qualities are necessary for combination, and these qualities are represented in women by their opposites.”

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

  1. Excellent read! The suffragette movement was nothing like what is taught in school today. They make it seem as though every single woman was out protesting while only a small minority disagreed but it’s the exact opposite, suffragettes were a small but very aggressive and often violent portion of the population that gained publicly through their antics. The majority of women were happy to be homemakers and didn’t want to engage in politics. Even Queen Victoria disagreed with the suffragettes. Despite all the movies and tv shows that portray Victoria as a feminist, she wasn’t, in fact she thought giving women the right to vote was silly and a waste of time. As for me, as long as I’m single I will vote in the best interest of men and when I’m married I’ll ask my husband if he’s ok with me voting and if he says yes, I’ll only vote for who he’s voting for.

    1. You’re right, Marie! Only 4% of women wanted to vote when the Suffragettes were fighting for the vote. I wrote about it a few years ago. “In September of 1903, an article in The Atlantic called Why Women Do Not Wish the Suffrage, the author explains why women didn’t want to vote (only 4 percent wanted to vote in a poll taken). They knew their highest calling was in the home and raising the next generation. They wanted their entire focus to be upon this and not concerned with things that they weren’t involved with like fighting wars, being policemen, or going out and making a living for the family.” https://thetransformedwife.com/in-1903-women-didnt-want-to-vote/

      Now, it seems ALL women falsely believe it’s their God-ordained right!

    2. suffragettes were a small but very aggressive and often violent portion of the population that gained publicly through their antics

      That’s been true of every radical, fringe, deviant group that has ever gained political power: numerically tiny, but very loud and aggressive, drowning out the majority who lack the passion to stop them. It was true of the Communists in the 20th Century, it was true of the feminists, it was true of the homosexuals, it was true of the open borders lobbyists, it’s true today of the Covidiots, and it will absolutely be just as true tomorrow of the pederasts, who WILL force through the full legalization of pedophilia and child pornography.

      Why? Because the majority ALWAYS chooses to remain silent and do nothing! Then, now, and forever.

      1. I’m glad feeriker brought this up, because it has been something that has been discussed frequently on the homefront here lately: What is to be done about all the silence? As a believer, and most certainly as a female, I’m called to be meek. Although I disagree with the “mainstream,” so to speak, I honestly don’t have a desire to “fight” back, but that doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything – Jesus taught us to turn the other cheek, to love our enemies, to be peacemakers. These are actions I’m willing to take. How far does that go? Jesus laid down his life at the hands of his accusers – but then, He didn’t suffer the moneychangers in the temple. My husband tells me such behavior (i.e. turning the other cheek) is essentially asanine and suicidal, especially when it comes to aggressive radicals seeking to destroy. My heart prompts me that Jesus’ suffering was for a PURPOSE, God’s ordained purpose. And sometimes God is the only one who knows the true purpose we face suffering in life, so – to boil all this down to a (hopefully) coherent question – how do we know when to be silent, and when to take a stand?

        My mind and heart have really been on this subject a lot lately, and I’m really very confused, in these current times, about what the proper response aught to be, not only from a Christian point of view, but particularly as a female.

        Sorry for rambling, and I hope what I’m asking here makes sense. Lori, it would be wonderful if you could maybe subject a post around this topic at some point if it’s too much to go into as a response. I would love to hear more about your thoughts on this, if you are so led.

        Thank you as always for a wonderful post and allowing such discussions to bring a little more light and clarity into the world. God bless!

        1. I share my thoughts about this a lot of my Instagram. I have spoken out against the Black Lives Matter movement which is evil at its root and wants to turn America into a communist country. I see a lot of evil being used behind the scenes of this “virus” too. Satan is the prince of the power of the air. This is to be expected.

          1. I read an interesting interpretation of turning the other cheek. Turning the other cheek makes it harder for your attacker to deal an effective blow, and it symbolizes a change in perspective. What if turning the other cheek is not a docile act, but a defensive one, and one which gives those in the wrong an opportunity to see the side of right and to repent?

  2. Lori,
    I have to ask you this and please do not be offended: do you hate yourself? It seems like you hate yourself and women.

    I hope that does not offend you, I don’t mean it offensively I just am genuinely curious.

      1. You’re entitled to your beliefs and I am entitled to mine.
        Your teaching doesn’t correspond at all to what I was taught in the Baptist church I grew up in, but I’ll respect it.

        I will keep you in my prayers.

        1. Yeah, most churches don’t teach the doctrines of biblical womanhood since they fear the women in the congregation rather than God, sadly. Instead of determining that what I teach doesn’t match what you were taught in your church, seek out the Scriptures instead. You will find truth there.

        2. Lisa, God made men and women differently with different strengths that work in the various realms of life they primarily dwell in. We can acknowledge it physically (although that is currently being questioned) but I’ll use the physical to illustrate the psychological. If you have a favorite basketball team like the Golden State Warriors and you hope they win the championship. All season you watch them and often imagine yourself playing shooting guard etc. You want it so bad that eventually you start campaigning to be on their team. You convince them it is a good idea and they make you the shooting guard. After you go in and replace Steph Curry the team looses. They lost because you had delusions that you were as good or better in the realm of basketball as Steph Curry and convinced the team to give you a chance. Recognizing that basketball is not your realm is not self hate, it is wisdom.

          Wise women rise to the top of their realm instead of rolling in the bottom of someone else’s. It would be waste for Steph Curry to insist on being a horse jockey and losing every race because he refused to acknowledge he was the wrong proportions.

          Just the same, many of the cities run by women are floundering. Recognizing that they would excel in a different realm than politics is not self loathing but a winning game plan.

        3. All I see is both commenters throwing out the word “hate.” I’ve done it too, we all have. People are simply mirrors of ourselves pretty much.

    1. Dear Lisa,

      Do you hate yourself?

      To remove yourself from the sphere nature fitted you for makes you seem very self loathing.

      Lori is far wiser and more virtuous than you, and impudent women like you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

      Rather than asking foolish questions, you ought to be learning from the marvelous example Lori is giving.

      1. Lori,
        I had no idea that you had anti-Semitic comments on your blog (I read it on Twitter). Please tell me this is not true.

          1. Lori,
            The person who commented on your twitter said that you had them before (Montesquieu being the commenter) but you took them down after someone brought it to your attention. But why would you publish them in the first place?
            I am sure it was a mistake, hopefully.

          2. I don’t read every single word of the comments on my blog, Betty. I have too much going on and I also don’t agree with every comment I publish on my blog but of course, the trolls love to go crazy if something slips by me that I definitely disagree with.

        1. Dear Betty,

          None of my comments are anti-Semitic.

          You are simply using Cultural Marxist ideology to try to crush dissent, as you leftists like to do.

          The fact is, if you look to see who is behind the Federal Reserve, which has been robbing America for 108 years, it’s international bankers, who happen to be J*wish. Snakes like you aren’t content with banning me from Twitter, Facebook, Breitbart, FrontPageMag, Daily Wire, The Gateway Pundit, and City Journal. You are still seeking to silence the truth about your International banker overlords, who are seeking to enslave the world. You are terrified of the common man learning the truth, and like your Father the Devil, you have been deceiving people ever since you deceived Eve in the Garden.

          Begone, you Satanic Liar!

          Lori, I’d advise not to listen to Betty, eco has never been on your site before, and is a trained activist.

          Thank you.

          Her kind will never be quiet until they stifle dissent, to ensure their slavery continues.

          Betty, please apologize for your lies. Lori, can you forward me Betty’s information, because I would like to file a lawsuit against her for libel. Thank you! I have Jewish friends, and I don’t appreciate Betty’s malicious lies.

          1. Thank you for qualifying, Montesquieu. I have received numerous comments about you being anti-Semitic. I prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt and should have come to you personally instead of deleting a few of your comments. Please forgive me.

          2. Montesquieu – Genuine question. Growing up, I was taught that Christians shouldn’t be involved in lawsuits. (1 Corin 6:7-8, Matt 5:39-40)

            From what I’ve read of your comments, you’re a believer in Jesus. Why, then, are you so quick to want to start a lawsuit? Is this just the American way or what? (In NZ lawsuits for things such as libel are very rare so I’m not used to seeing such threats thrown around so easily)

          3. You’re welcome, Lori.

            Betty and her fellow Cultural Marxists are experts at slurring Conservative, Constitutional Christians as “sexists”, “homophobes”, “islamophobes”, “bigots”, “anti-semites”, “conspiracy theorists”, and a host of other slurs they use to shut down discussion.

            https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2007/02/cultural_marxism.html

            The facts are, Communism was designed by International Jewish Bankers who use it as a control mechanism to rule the world. I’ve carefully studied the horrors of Communism in Russia, China, and Cambodia, and its coming here.

            https://archive.org/details/protocolsofthelearnedeldersofzion

            https://100777.com/myron

            http://jrbooksonline.com/PDF_Books/WallStreetCommieRevolution.pdf

            These same International Bankers funded Hitler, so, they don’t care about Jews at all, though they are Jewish.

            Notice, few if any of the complaints come from regular commenters. Also, the overwhelming majority of those deceived by Communist Cultural Marxist propaganda are women. It’s very subtle. They call someone a racist or anti-Semite, WITH ZERO EVIDENCE, and Christians hurry to try to appease them, not realizing people like Betty are lying snakes, who only want to silence and crush the truth, to uphold the corrupt system their International Jewish Bankers control.

            Betty represents the same MoneyChangers that Christ took a bull whip into the temple to whip out. They are liars, cheaters, thieves. Corrupt, evil, wicked, and utterly reprobate. Christ didn’t play with them, and neither should we. Christ told us to be harmless as doves, but wise as serpents.

            A few chapters after he rebuked them in Matthew 23, the Pharisee MoneyChangers influenced the Romans to murder him, by lying and saying Christ was trying to start a Revolution by saying he was King. And so, the worlds most perfect man, was slaughtered.

            Christians must “prove all things, and hold fast to that which is true”. In America, we are all innocent until proven guilty, even if 10,000,000 Democrat Marxists say we are guilty.

            “It is better to let ten guilty people go free than to wrongly convict one innocent person”
            Blackstone

          4. Certainly, KAK. The two biblical passages you listed are aimed at Christians going to secular courts against other Christians, which makes zero sense, and which is counterproductive and can be dangerous. Unless we are talking about clear crimes like child molestation.

            However, when dealing with malicious Cultural Marxists, who lie, deceive, slander, and libel, it’s entirely permissible to use the courts and file libel and slander lawsuits. God says in Romans 13 that rulers are a terror against evil works, and we know God hates liars, and so should every Christian. Because, if you think about it, people like Betty have to be pretty hateful to publicly lie about Christians like me. Why are they lying? Because they want to stir up the population to harm people like me, yet, they are very skillful in their approach. Notice how, like Satan, Betty questions Lori like she is genuinely caring and compassionate. Betty isn’t caring or compassionate at all, she’s a lying serpent.

            When Christians and the church encounter lying deceivers like Betty, a strong response is required.

            Romans 16
            17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

            God hates liars.

            Proverbs 6:
            [16] These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
            [17] A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
            [18] An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
            [19] A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

            18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

            Romans 12:9 commands Christians to love what God loves, and hate what he hates.

            “Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.”

            Love good and hate evil.

            Cultural Marxists are causing massive riots, violence, and chaos with their lies, and they need to be rebuked before all, that all may fear. One must be careful before accusing them though. However, when it’s a person who never comments on here, and randomly hops on, decrees themselves a judge, and demands the site should get rid of ideas they don’t like, that needs to be strongly denounced.

            Once you confront Cultural Marxists like Betty with the truth, they turn and run.

            Proverbs 19:25

            “Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.“

            Besides, the greatest enemy any of us has is sin. So, our greatest friend are those who denounce sin, the only thing that separates us from God. Today’s churches are very hateful environments, where they rarely rebuke evil, allowing people to perish in the slavery of sin and go to hell. Love corrects. Chastisement makes chaste. God only corrects those whom he loves, and he does it fairly and with judgement, which is why Solomon, when asked by God in a dream what did he want, responded that he wanted judgement. Because he was given judgement by God, he was blessed with enduring the world constantly desires, wealth, power, and the opposite sex. That’s not to say we avoid desire those, because poor Solomon was corrupted by them.

            “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely”
            Lord Acton

    2. Lisa here is a good example of everything that’s wrong with feminism, they say they’re all about choices but they clearly only favour women having choices when it comes to a career. If you say you take pride in your femininity and want to devote yourself to your husband you’ve picked the “wrong” choice and then they shame you. Every woman is entitled to her opinion until it’s a conservative or more traditional opinion and then the next step is to just accuse her of hating herself.

    3. Dear Lisa,
      I am really curious why you (and many others) think Lori hates a particular group of people. She never said she hated women. You certainly are entitled to your own opinion, I don’t agree with every single thing she has ever written either, but really, she critisises certain behaviours, she might write she hates certain choices, lifestyles, acts, but never a whole group of people. So, geniuenly, where does this notion come from? Surely not from her public posts…

  3. So genuine question about voting then. Is it wrong for me to vote at all? Should I exercise my right to not vote? Or in today’s age when every vote counts to get the “good” guys in, should I still vote under the guidance of my husband (right now I’m voting for the one available who’s most biblical because I’m not married yet)?

    1. Yes, vote for the most conservative candidates and make sure to marry a godly man. Vote the way he leads once married. In this way, you will support his vote rather than negate it.

  4. A big problem with women today is that they are “taught”… and most are “taught”by other women. A great many don’t actually sit down with their bibles and read and study it for themselves. I used to be one of them! I’ve been in women’s “bible studies” groups that never read from the Bible. It was a book about the Bible. Anytime a couple of us would want to sit and just start going through the scripture we would hear, “well, I just really don’t want to do that. What about this book… I hear it’s very empowering!” What’s more empowering than the Bible? Women don’t want to hear the truth. They just want to rattle off the little bit of scripture they have tucked away that they use to justify their disobedience. All of it being completely out of context. If women actually sat down with the Word and read it for themselves….they would be so overwhelmed with conviction. I know I was! And, they would truly see just how wrong they are in their thinking.

    1. Tn Mtn girl’s answer : If women actually sat down with the Word and read it for themselves….

      Women (and men) would do good to follow that advice instead of just going by what some person says.

      We should ALWAYS be like the Bereans

      Acts 17:11 KJV
      These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

      Paul and Silas were preaching / teaching.
      Did the Bereans just take them at what they said?
      NO!
      They compared what Paul and Silas said to God’s word, to see if what they were saying lined up with what God said.

      Shouldn’t we be as wise?

  5. One word: Seattle.

    Of course rather than learn any lessons from the current debacle, the feminists and their enablers, like the Communists of whom they are spawn, will simply double down, insisting that “the wrong women” are in charge there, replace them with even less capable women, and hasten the inevitable collapse.

  6. Lori,

    I enjoyed this article very much! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    I am surprised to learn that the Women’s Suffragist Movement thought themselves superior to men concerning politics. I didn’t study this movement in public school (thank goodness), only that they wanted the right to vote. The following quote is very disturbing to me, because it sounds so much like what the powerful Women’s Libbers think today, but now there are many, many more of them!

    “There are none so foolish as the women who have discovered that the founders of our republic left their work half finished, and that the better half remains for them to do.”

  7. What do you recommend women do about voting when their husband is not a Christian and votes for liberals?

    Also, what are your thoughts about Kay Authur as a Biblical teacher?

    1. All I can tell you, Carla, is that the Lord cares more about you living in submission to your husband than he does your vote. He commands you live in subjection to your disobedient husband with godly behavior in hopes of winning him (1 Peter 3:1,2) so do what he wants you to do. You submission will have a greater chance of winning him to the Lord than your going your own way. Nowhere in God’s Word are we commanded to vote.

      I am not a fan of any female Bible teacher, especially ones who fail to teach what God commands they teach in Titus 2:3-5. Have you noticed that most of the popular female Bible teachers/preachers fail to teach biblical womanhood? I believe God gave men the authority to teach/preach the word of God. If women aren’t to teach men or be in authority over them because they are easily deceived as the Apostle Paul taught, why can they then teach women? The popular female preachers/teachers like Beth Moore are leading many women astray. Here is a good article about Beth Moore being a false teacher: https://the-end-time.org/2020/06/23/has-beth-moore-only-recently-drifted-or-has-she-always-been-false/

      1. Thank you for your thoughts and answers. So should I vote to cancel my liberal voting husband or should I just not vote? My husband doesn’t tell me how to vote. He doesn’t agree with my conservative views, but does not tell me how to vote. He leaves that up to me.

          1. OK. I am willing to not vote and trust GOD with the outcome. However, would you be willing to share with me your reasoning so that I could understand where you are coming from?

            Also, what are your thoughts about a small (4 total) group of women meeting to do a book study on Titus 2: 3-5?

  8. Great post. May I ask you a question – what religious denomination are you? I’m an Episcopalian. Reading your posts and readers comments, I was curious. Anyways, very enjoyable read today (they all are though!).

    1. I am not Lori.
      But aren’t we all of Christ or not of Christ?

      Do you think when a Christian is in Heaven that there will be different sections devoted to Protestants, Baptists, Lutherans, Catholics, etc?

      I am a Christian. PERIOD.
      2 verses come to mind to back my statement up.

      1 Corinthians 1:12-13 KJV
      Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

      1 Corinthians 3:4-6 KJV
      For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

      I am a Protestant
      I am a Baptist
      I am a Catholic
      Doesn’t that sound just like the verses above that God spoke against?

  9. I have a copy of my 4-great grandmother’s diary. She was part of the suffragette movement here in NZ. Here is a direct quote from it: “Opposers of our movement say that disturbing the natural gender roles will have terrible consequences. I don’t believe that to be so.”
    Looks like the opposers were right.

  10. The Transformed Wife, how do you feel about Republican/conservative female governors, congresswomen, and mayors?

    1. I will vote for them over a Leftist man, that’s for sure, but I still am saddened for their families since I know they will get very little of their time. Their families should be their priority. Others can take their place in these high profile positions but NO ONE can take their place in their children’s and husband’s lives.

  11. Lisa,
    I used to think like you. (If this is not how you think I’m sorry – I’m not trying to offend, just reading in between lines from your comment at the top)

    I’m saddened for you. I needed a career to consider myself successful. I needed to put my kids in daycare all day because I needed to climb the ladder. I needed to call the shots in my household. Yet, I never found the satisfaction I was looking for. I needed more more more. But yet, more never satisfied. I would ignore the Proverbs 31 woman because I didn’t think it was attainable. BUT GOD worked on my heart and has been conforming me to His likeness daily. I’m not perfect – I know that. I still sin…..unfortunately. But what I learned over the last several years is this: Jesus died FOR ME. He took my place on that cross and paid the price for my sins past/present/future. He did this so I could be forgiven of all my sins, Because he knew there was no way I could save myself. He loves me. He loves all who believe in Him and what He did for each one of us (read that line again -“EACH“ one – He excludes no one- ALL are welcome to believe). I now see everything differently. I am so thankful to God that He did this for me.

    I kept digging into scripture and came across proverbs 31 again. I read it over and over again. What I realized is that it IS attainable IF you don’t work a 40-50 hour a week full time out of the house job. I have since quit my teaching job in public school and became a stay at home mother. (Yes we do have to budget budget budget ! It wasn’t/isn’t an easy switch- my husband doesn’t make 6 figures). But What I used to think was below me, I have now humbled myself to do. What materials I thought I needed I don’t actually need. God provides. This is not a job for the faint hearted or weary. It is a full time job to raise your own kids and take care of your husband. AND IT IS SO SATISFYING! My husband and I used to fight a lot and my kids would have never grown up to call me blessed – as I was not! I was a complainer, entitled, worn out, grouchy, and running on empty constantly. I am now able to teach my own kids the right way to live rather than leaving it up to the failing public school system to do that. I am able to take care of my husband and allow him to climb the ladder in his job. I’ve never seen him happier or as satisfied . I’ve never been so satisfied and as an extra benefit – happy. Wow, what a difference.

    I am so thankful for teachers like Lori to teach the truth. It may seem crazy to you, but I wouldn’t destroy the idea if you’ve never given it a real shot. Genuinely pray for God to open your eyes. Gods ways are always the right ways even when they seem contrary to how you grew up or to the culture. Remember God doesn’t conform to the culture of any time. It is ever changing. If people see nothing different in you than the non Christian Nextdoor, you should take a look at your beliefs again. I suggest you read scripture and pray on it. God loves you. Pray to be given wisdom and discernment.

    I will pray for you.

  12. Submission to my husband has been another factor in the above statement and that is another great but long story. I’m so thankful to have learned of Biblical submission. It has changed our lives – for the better, which to women nowadays seems contrary to their beliefs.

  13. Husbands and fathers should vote for what they see as being in the best interests of their families. Women are of course part of that family and will be represented by the husband or father – it was a sad mistake to break that chain of responsibility and authority.

  14. I think it inaccurate to depict women as not possessing the faculty of reason, as we surely do. But our brains are not compartmentalized like those of men, so our emotions do tend to cloud straight thinking at times. And when we witness radical feminists screeching their abortions, and female political leaders speaking gibberish in response to the mob rule on the their streets, it seems this writer makes a valid point. As men have given away their power and allowed themselves to be emasculated, they have become much less effective in the political sphere. They are fearful and will not stand up for justice and the true, the good, and the beautiful of our country, America. I am glad to have the right to vote, and President Trump needs the female vote. It’s crucial to his re-election. So we are in a quagmire indeed.

  15. Amen “M”.
    Today’s women don’t want to read between the lines on what the bible defines as a womens/wives roll in life. They are too busy with the “me too” movement and believing they are equal in everything!

  16. Before I became a Christian, I always said “shame on those bra burning, equal rights wanting women. I would be just as happy always staying home, taking care of my husband, and raising children.” Now, as a Christian, I KNOW that is where my place is and couldn’t agree more. I pray for so many women I know or encounter, be it on TV or in everyday life. They are so lost.
