“We women are the answer to virtually everything that ails society” (Jen Hatmaker). Jen may just be right about this!
If women would stop having their babies slaughtered in their wombs, life would once again be valued and women would understand that it’s not about “my body, my choice” but about another human life’s well-being.
If women would stop initiating up to 80 percent of divorces, then marriages would be stronger and children would be raised in homes with mothers and fathers.
If women would decide that raising their own children is far superior and more important than a career and a paycheck, children would grow up to be secure, emotionally stable, and protected.
If women would stop being promiscuous and wait until marriage to have sex, there would be no babies being born out of wedlock.
If women would decide to be modest and not involved in being filmed for pornography, porn would soon die out.
If women would learn that godliness with contentment is great gain and seek to have meek and quiet spirits, then their marriages would most likely last until death do they part.
So, yes, Jen, you do have a point there, BUT it’s God and His Word that is the answer to virtually everything that ails society. I don’t think you meant what I wrote at all since you don’t seem to be too interested in God’s will for women, but His ways are perfect. Your ways cannot compare to His ways. You may think you have the answers apart from the Lord but you don’t. It’s only in obeying God that women will be able to change their lives, societies, and their children’s lives for good.
We don’t change culture through “social justice” and using the weapons of the world. No, a spiritual battle is raging so we live godly lives. In this way, we are salt and light to a dark and depraved world. We share the Gospel with whomever we can. People need the Gospel more than they need anything else. Speak the truth in love and plant seeds everywhere you go. Be bold with your faith. You serve Almighty God! Pray and pray and pray. This is how we battle, women.
See that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
