Feminism: An anti-God Movement



God's order was quite simple. "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." 1 Corinthians 11:3. KJV
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.....For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh....Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." Ephesians 5:21-33 KJV. Where did it all go wrong?

Feminism by definition is the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. Many may be familiar with the Second-wave feminism in the 1960's, the Women Liberation Movement, and some may know of the First-wave feminism movement in the early 1900's targeted primarily towards the suffrage movement. But few know that feminism has become a smoke in mirrors movement. It is presented as simply being a movement of women wanting equal rights with men, but as the smoke clears it is obvious that it is more about women wanting to be men. Part of it's agenda is to remove men from the scene all together. Yes, there are areas of feminism that speak up for injustices women face worldwide but, quite cunningly, by  pushing some of the seemingly more noble ideals like the suffrage movement (women's right to vote), and anti-domestic violence, anti-rape, anti-human trafficking upfront, many are understandably under the impression it's an organization that is fully for women, when in fact this movement has proven to be against women in many areas. How so? A part of what is being promoted by the feminist is the notion that men are superfluous.Women truly do need men and cannot make it without them, and men need us, and anything that serves to invalidate that is against all of mankind, not only females. Most important to note is that deeply woven in much of the feminist ideology is the replacement and ultimately the eradication of the order God set in place which requires the participation of  men as the head women. This movement is against many things, but the primary reason I'm writing on this topic, is because it is against God. It is clearly against life because it advocates pro-choice( the right to have an abortion), one could even say aimed at population control. It's also an exponent of  homosexuality. Many of the women who were at the forefront of the "Homosexual agenda" were feminist's. Several of the women who are at the helm of the feminist movement, and many of their more zealous supporters are lesbians. All believers should be well aware that all sexual immorality is against God. Killing a baby, whether a fetus or not, is also against God. Promoting a self-sufficient lifestyle is against God. Every one of Gods creations need Him.

I think the Jezebel spirit is involved in this movement. It is being taught on a large scale, via film, movies, books, and so on, that female independence is something endearing. This has produced many women who boast in their self-sufficiency, stating that they don't need a man for anything. In reality, many of these women fail to realize that their boasting in such things is direct rebellion against God's perfect order and will. Is it wrong that you do most thing's for yourself? No, nothings wrong with that, because more often it is not always a matter of choice but necessity. But when you boast about not needing a man, which you will at some point in life, you're perpetuating the attitude of men being completely unnecessary, this is also disrespectful to men.

A woman is a liar when she proclaims that she doesn't need a man for anything; and when I say "need a man" I'm not talking about a relationship or somebody to sleep around with. Of course it is godly for a women to prefer to be with a male for a relationship such as marriage as suppose to a women, but that should go without saying. What I am talking about here however is the fact that no women can honestly say that they have not called upon a man to do certain tasks they were unable to do themselves. Tasks like changing a flat, fixing a broken pipe, lifting heavy items, even something like opening a jar that has the lid on too tight, men have been summoned to assist in many of these things and much more. Someone might say, "Well, all of those things many women are able to do on their own". Yes, you're correct, but even those women still need a man's assistance in other capacities. Even Lesbians need a man, they may not like to admit it, but they certainly do. If a lesbian couple wants children, whether by adoption, in vitro fertilization, or artificial insemination, sperm is required, and I'm pretty sure only men produce sperm. But many lesbians and feminist turn a blind eye to all of this.

The feminist movement has gone from being a movement in favor of women simply wanting to be respected by men as individuals who are an invaluable part of society, to women outright hating men. My independent ladies out there, do you still think you "Don't need a man"? Are you still going to proudly sing out the anthem "Who run the world? Girls"? I'll tell you who truly runs the world, God. I remember as a child hearing the phrase, "Girls rule, Boys drool" and in retrospect I see that these feminist platitudes were seeping into even little girl's minds. Many ideals like, women are better than men in everything, which is a lie by the way, are being drummed into the heads of many women, and have created an environment where women compete against men instead of working along with them. Eve was created to be Adams helper, but these days many Eves of the world have abandoned that and decided to explore other avenues, trying to systematically usurp the role of the Adam's of the world, leading many women into rebellion against God, perhaps for some inadvertently, nevertheless, still against God.

I think it would be incomplete to talk about feminism without addressing one of the reasons behind it, some might say the main reason behind it. The catalyst for feminism and all ungodly things is of course sin, and it is sinful and shameful when a man neglects to play the role he has been given by God. When men stopped doing what they're supposed to, everything went south, so to speak. Does this justify feminism? No, it certainly does not. This doesn't make feminism any less a perversion that is has become over the decades against God. This is to show how important a man's role is on earth in general. It's starts in the home. A mother and father are suppose to be in the home, of course that arrangement is hardly in place in many homes across the world and that's a problem. When men stopped playing their role as man, women were left to find a way to make do. When men stopped taking care of their responsibilities, stopped providing for their families, stopped being a God fearing head of the household, many women ended up having to provide for their families. Some by finding another man, a sugar daddy, somebody to help them with certain things for sexual favors in return. "You do this for me and I compensate you with sex", most would say that's tantamount to prostitution, I would say you might just be correct. Are we beginning to see how much society is impacted when the order God created became perverted by mankind's disobedience.

Many men have abused their role as the head of women and treated many women poorly and not with love and respect like they're suppose to do, eventually becoming misogynist.  As Christ Himself said men should love their wives like He loves the church. There indeed are men guilty of abusing their role and taking unfair advantage of women, this is also wrong and something that buffeted the feminism movement into being. Again, does this justify the movement? No, it's all still against God. Feminism is a bi-product of man's disobedience. Men not playing their role left many children to grow up in single parent homes, homes led by women. Without fathers/men playing their assigned role, things really got out of whack. Many children ended up on the streets, some women selling their daughters to pimps so that they could get some money to purchase bare necessities; although many of those women were crack addicts and heroin addicts, there are a number of cases where the girls who were sold into prostitution came from single parent homes with "sober" mothers. Many guys not having a father's guidance end up on the street selling drugs, doing drugs, joining gangs, or committing some kind of crime which causes them to end up entering the penal system from a young age.

When a man fails to adhere to the commands God set in place in the home, many things are affected, not just in the home, but society all together. In the absence of a mans assistance, women end up learning to do things they otherwise never would have had any interest in knowing. Upon learning how to do various things they never would have had to do before, many women come to a realization that they can do anything and that they don't need a man; and there you have feminism.

Of course, these days female independence is normal, because this era is a  product of that feminism movement of the early 1900's and 1960's. Women can now vote, shucks, a woman can run for president of a country or a cooperation if she wants and it wouldn't be considered a ludicrous ambition. Women can work, in many cases making a higher salary than a man. They can apply for job positions that were before only offered to men, and get those positions. Feminism isn't the sole blame for lesbianism, or for  prostitution, well, certainly not for prostitution because that's one of the oldest professions on earth. Neither is feminism solely the blame for the the innumerable amount of broken homes in the world. Sin has produced a combination of things which has resulted in the society we live in today. Feminism and men not playing their respective roles in the home are products of sin, and the order God set in placed being perverted. Feminist have little to no regard to God's way, ultimately removing God from the mind of women and out of the picture all together. Again, I say this is a clear indication that the Jezebel spirit is at work in many women today.

Ladies, we live in a broken world, laced with sin from pillar to post. Because of the brokenness all around, many women are faced with many daunting tasks, things God did not originally have in the plan them. I have uttermost respect for women who are able to juggle career and family life, my mother was also one of those women; but they must know they're not alone. We must remember that God is a, "Father to the fatherless, defender of the widows." Psalm 68:5. It can be very difficult raising children on your own, trying to hold down sometimes more than one job in order to put food on the table, but our allegiance should be to God, not to some movement that promotes things contrary to God's way. We should seek God's council and not the ungodly when faced with hard decisions in life as a woman, as people in general. For those with husbands not playing their role in the home, pray for him, pray that God teaches your husband His ways, and simply be an example in conduct, submitting yourself to your own husband at all times. Let's remember to pray to God for aid, He is our provider, our strong tower. Faith and trusting in God is truly important when faced with trials. None of what I mentioned here is to say it is evil that a woman works or anything like that, we've gotten to a point where for many women it's a necessity, although some women don't have to work they simply choose to. In spite of societies condition we can still be hopeful and remember God is able to make what is crooked straight again. As women  let's desire to be what God would like to see us be and not society and especially not following the dogma presented in the godless feminism movement. Let us aspire to be virtuous women in the sight of God.

"Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life....." Proverbs 31:10-12."Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised" Proverbs 31:30. Fear the Lord and keep His commands.

What a beautiful post you have written Sateigdra. It is lovely to see you back writing what the Lord is inspiring you to write. God's ways are so beautiful aren't they. If women are in subjection to their husbands and husbands must love their wives as themselves, then that is love all round for both isn't it, exactly how God wants us to be. God bless you Sateigdra.

Sateigdra L Knowles said...

Thanks Brenda. God wants us to obey Him in all things, and there are many women who have forgotten that.

I'm glad to be back too. Was taking a break, might be posting every now and again, not as frequent as I used to but every now and again.

God Bless you too Brenda.

It is a sad fact that here in the UK feminism is encouraged by our Government, with our Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer telling women who had just given birth to go back to work as soon as possible.
An excellent post on feminism.

Sateigdra L Knowles said...

Thanks Frank.
Feminism is encouraged all over the place, and I'm always surprised to see a man supporting it. I wonder if he truly understand what it's about. Feminist have already pushed men out of the picture by advocating pro-choice.If women have control over their bodies, that means married women too, husbands should let women do what they want if they want to abort the baby which the husband helped to produce, it should be solely up to the woman. I wonder how many men missed that little tidbit, and are supporting feminism.

Watched a documentary the other day, called "Movers" a three part mini-series PBS presented a while back, I watched online. One thing all those feminist have in common is their disregard for God and their affinity to rebelling against the correct order God has in place. One lady said, felt housework was beneath her or stifling her in a way. The Women's Liberation Movement was women wanting to rebel from their women duties and venture out. Feminism teaches women and little girls that simply being content with housework and mother duties is sign of somebody in bondage, and should rebel against it. The ERA (Equal Rights Act)the feminist were trying to get congress to pass in the 1960's wasn't about women wanting to be equal with men, but for women to be given the freedom to be men.

I love being a woman. Now that we are both retired we share things around the house like dish washing where he washes and I dry. He vacuums and I polish etc. That's probably because my husband loves me, his wife, as himself eh?

Sateigdra L Knowles said...

Yes Brenda :-) And that's what it's supposed to be like. Husband loving his wife and wife loving her husband. God's way is always the best way. I love being a woman too.

T-Childs said...

Great post Sateigdra. Life is all about balance hey, if you love me and I love you, then that love is both mutual and fitting. If a man loves his wife and she equally loves him, all the feminism goes out the window so to speak. Some feminism does appear at its most extreme to be an excuse to hate men, and hate is never going to make anyone happy in the end. What happens when, as is slowly happening in the US, start to react against this and start becoming masculinists?

Sateigdra L Knowles said...

Thanks Tim. You're right hate doesn't make anyone happy in the end, just bitter. I don't know what to say will happen in the U.S if people become masculinists, this is even my first time hearing about that. It would probably be just as bad it is with the feminist.

Laurie Collett said...

Excellent post, Sateigdra! The lie of feminism is that women will be elevated by fighting God's plan, when in fact, His plan calls for us to be loved, protected and cherished by our husband just as Christ loves the church and gave Himself for her. There is no higher calling than that.
May God bless you and your ministry,
Laurie

Thanks so much Laurie. :-)

Sateigdra,
Well done on writing this blog post. I know how difficult writing for public audiences can be.

I would caution against calling 'feminism' godless so quickly though.
If it were not for the feminism movement you would not have been allowed to be educated. If not for feminism you may not have had the ability to write this very blog. If not for feminism you may have had to use a male pseudonym to even publish a blog like this.

I'm sure that both the Bible and Jesus Christ (the exact representation of God on earth) are both more egalitarian than you may think.

I for one, am glad that the feminism movement pushed for the education of women like yourself.

I strongly encourage you to keep educating yourself. Especially in the scriptures. Remember, Jesus still loves feminists (even prostitutes like the women at the well).
Jesus is Pro-Sinner.
He wants to forgive us all.

Sateigdra L Knowles said...

Thank you so much for reading and thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it. And I will mos def continue to educate myself, primarily through studying scriptures.

Yes, God's hand isn't limited that He cannot extend mercy and forgiveness to a feminist. Just like He can and will forgive anybody who repents and turn from any wrongdoing. The problem there is, (today's)feminist do not see any error in the things they are advocating. How can a person seek forgiveness if they see themselves as not doing anything wrong? Can you deny that they have pushed God out of the picture?

I totally agree there have been benefits, I even listed several of them in this post. I even said that initially it was a movement with women simply wanting to be respected by men as individuals who are an invaluable part of society. It has gone from that to something entirely different. It has progressed to an ungodly movement.

I don't think any Christian can refute that feminism has turned into a Godless movement over the last several decades, some might even say it's always been one. Advocating things like abortion and gay rights and gay marriage is certainly not godly. Saying women, not even excluding married women, should have the rights to do whatever they want with their bodies, so if they want to terminate their pregnancy, more often due to it being a matter of inconvenience, then they can, and that is ungodly.

I think how a person feels about feminism is a matter of perspective. If one was to measure the pros and cons of feminism from a worldly point of view, meaning, excluding God's precepts and commandments, even His existence, then the pros would far outweigh the cons for that person. But if this person views feminism from a renewed mind, then they would see that although there have been some benefits from said movement, much of this movement has become the devils advocate. Can anybody truly deny that feminism, in spite of whatever areas in which some may see it as being beneficial, has broken the family structure, has stepped all over the order God set up, has contributed to the dismantling of society?

I truly appreciate your feed back. I'm not sure if you're a believer or not but if you are, we should all pray that the mind's of today's women be renewed in Jesus Christ so that we may aspire to be the type of woman that is pleasing to God and not rebellious. As for those who are feminist, we can pray that God opens their eyes so they can see the error in much of what they are doing and that they may seek forgiveness and their zeal for killing babies and advocating other ungodly practices, be replaced with the desire to be a virtuous woman in the sight of God.

You said that God loves them, out of love the truth about their movement has become has been revealed to them so that many can turn and live. But how many will see it that way and not see it as just some crazy pro-lifer "bible banging"? Whenever I write, my aim is for others to know that, if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just and will forgive.

" And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” John 3:19-21.
