Even before I was born again, I knew that something about the Feminist movement was very wrong. I wasn’t able to discern things as I can now. But I could see something in these women that was distasteful to me. I wanted nothing to do with them.
I remember watching Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan and others, screaming at women to “burn their bras” and to rule over men. As a matter of fact, they were also telling women that they did not need men – that men were inferior to them.
Garden of Eden and the Fall of Man
“Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings” (Genesis 3:1-7) NASB.
Notice that Eve was the one who was deceived. Adam sinned willfully – probably out of devotion to his wife.
“To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you will bring forth children; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you” (Genesis 3:16) NASB.
What Does It Mean When God Said To Eve “Your desire will be for your husband?”
Answer: As God pronounces judgment on Eve for her part of the transgression in Eden, He says, “Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you” (Genesis 3:16). This verse causes some puzzlement. It would seem that a woman desiring her husband would be a good thing, and not a curse.
The Hebrew phrase in question does not include a verb and is literally translated “toward your husband your desire.” Since this judgment is predictive, the future tense verb “will be” is added for clarity: “Your desire will be for your husband.” The most basic and straightforward understanding of this verse is that woman and man would now have ongoing conflict. In contrast to the ideal conditions in the Garden of Eden and the harmony between Adam and Eve, their relationship, from that point on, would include a power struggle. The NLT translation makes it more evident: “You will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.”
God is saying that Eve would desire to rule over her husband, but her husband would instead rule over her. Replacing the mutually interdependent relationship the Lord had created was a desire for one spouse to lead the other. Sin had wrought discord. The battle of the sexes had begun. Both man and woman would now seek the upper hand in marriage. The man who was to lovingly care for and nurture his wife would now seek to rule her, and the wife would desire to wrest control from her husband.
It is important to note that this judgment only states what will take place. God says that man and woman will live in conflict and their relationship will become problematic. The statement “he shall rule over you” is not a biblical command for men to dominate women.
In the New Testament, God affirms His ideal relationship between man and woman in marriage. Christ-like qualities are emphasized. What the curse of sin created, believers in Christ are called to correct by living according to God’s Spirit. Ephesians 5 says that the wife should willingly submit to her husband’s authority in the home, in essence, refusing to scratch the curse-fueled itch to seize control (verses 22-24). Husbands are to love their wives unconditionally and sacrificially, just as Christ loves the Church (verses 25-30). The whole passage begins with an emphasis on mutual submission to one another: “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ” (verse 21).
From the beginning, God’s focus has been love and respect between husband and wife. Though sin has tainted the original beauty of this relationship, God commands believers in Christ to pursue this ideal relationship between husband and wife, an ideal perfectly illustrated in Christ’s relationship with the Church. – source
Feminism Has Had a Negative Impact on the Family
During the 1960’s and 70’s, when feminism was exploding, it had a terrible affect on men and on the family unit. Men no longer knew how to act or what was expected of them. Should they hold a door open for a woman, or would the woman become indignant? Should they automatically pay for a dinner on a date? What subjects should they avoid with women?
Women no longer were viewing the raising of their children as a top priority. They were being told to get out of the kitchen and into the corporate boardroom – let someone else care for their kids. Some women even wanted their husbands to become stay at home dads, so that the woman could work to show the world their “worth.”
Abortion is a Direct Result of Feminism
In 1973, our SCOTUS made a heinous decision which would impact millions of unborn babies and scar their mothers for life. Roe vs. Wade opened the way for women to rid themselves of inconvenient pregnancies. Since Roe Vs Wade, over 58 million unborn babies have been aborted.
The Women’s March after Inauguration is all about ABORTION
One of the promises of President Trump was to defund Planned Parenthood. That promise is being realized as President Trump is signing an executive order to defund the abortion providing giant.
Planned Parenthood is a killing machine and our government has been using our tax money to fund them with millions of dollars each year. This will stop with the new administration.
Planned Parenthood has lied about their services – claiming that women will not be able to have breast exams for cancer. The only thing that Planned Parenthood has ever done has been a check of the woman’s breasts, just as we have been taught to do at home. They do NOT provide Mammograms. The reality is this: Most revenue brought in by Planned Parenthood is from providing abortions.
The Power of Murder and the Sacrifice of Children to Moloch (Molech)
Do you remember the woman who got prayer taken out of our schools? Her name was Madalyn Murray O’Hair. One of her sons became born again and a Baptist pastor, and travels the country speaking to churches.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s Son: We ‘Sacrifice Babies to Moloch Today’ and ‘Call It Family Planning’
William J. Murray III, a Baptist minister, author, and the son of infamous atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair, said that just as some people in the past sacrificed infants to the demonic “god” Moloch for “financial luck,” so too do some people “sacrifice babies to Moloch today” through abortion “for the financial good of the family,” and call it “family planning.”
Towards the end of a March 18 interview on The Dove TV’s Focus Today show, Murray and host Perry Atkinson discussed how religious freedom is being attacked in the United States and how clear and factual information about what is happening is difficult to discern, especially given the liberal media’s hostility toward Christianity.
“The propaganda as to what you’re allowed to do and what is religious freedom and what isn’t religious freedom, and what society deems as being proper and right” is deliberately obfuscated, said Murray, who broke from his mother’s militant atheism, became a born again Christian in 1980, and now runs the Religious Freedom Coalition.
“There was a period in Israel after King David, where making sacrifices of infants and burying them at your doorstep in order to bring good financial luck to the family was an acceptable thing to do,” said Murray.
“I mean, there were actually some people worshiping Moloch,” he said. “Just because society is doing it or society is approving it doesn’t make it right.”
“By the way, we still sacrifice babies to Moloch today for the financial good of the family,” said Murray. “We call it family planning and say, ‘Well, if we abort this baby, the family will be better financially, so it’s okay.’”
“It really is the same thing as the sacrifices that were done to Moloch several thousand years ago,” said Murray, the author of several books, including My Life Without God, the Church is Not For Perfect People, and Utopian Road to Hell.
Moloch is mentioned several times in the Old Testament. In Leviticus 18, the Lord God instructs Moses on how the Israelites are to behave morally and in specific circumstances. In verse 21, he says, “You shall not give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the Lord.”
In Leviticus 20, the Lord orders Moses to tell the Israelites, “Any man from the sons of Israel or from the aliens sojourning in Israel who gives any of his offspring to Molech, shall surely be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
“I will also set My face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given some of his offspring to Molech, so as to defile My sanctuary and to profane My holy name.
“If the people of the land, however, should ever disregard that man when he gives any of his offspring to Molech, so as not to put him to death, then I Myself will set My face against that man and against his family, and I will cut off from among their people both him and all those who play the harlot after him, by playing the harlot after Molech.”
William J. Murray’s mother, Madalyn Murray O’Hair was a militant atheist who challenged required prayer and Bible reading in the public schools, which led to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in her favor in 1963. O’Hair founded the American Atheists group and was its president from 1963 to 1986.
Because of the court case, O’Hair attained notoriety and was frequently interviewed on radio and television over the years.- source
God’s Way is ALWAYS Best
Men and women are equal in the sight of God. This became so clear when our Savior Jesus Christ walked the earth. But even though we are equal, we have different roles. In God’s perfect plan, marriage is a picture of the Lord Jesus Christ and His bride the Church. Just as His followers are to be submissive to Christ, the woman in marriage is to be submissive to her husband. The man’s covering is Christ, while the woman’s covering is her husband. This does NOT mean that a husband is to emotionally or physically abuse his wife. It means that God has appointed husbands to protect and defend their wives.
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:25). NASB
Feminism has been a tool of the devil to wreak havoc in families. Now, women are having children and have no desire to have a husband. God’s way is that the family would include a father and mother to care for their children.
I believe that the break up of the traditional family has had such a dramatic impact on society. Atheism is almost always the “religion” (secular humanism) of the feminist family. But feminism has crept into families within the church as well. And with massive apostasy in our churches – no wonder evil is rampant.
The devil knows that his time is short. The evil from his armies of fallen angels is so thick and pervasive in the world – we who have spiritual discernment know that we are in the end of the end times.
