Feminism is an evil movement that is rebellion against God and the Bible. The divorce rate has doubled since the feminist movement. In this article feminism will be rebuked with scripture and scripture alone. Those of the feminist movement want authority over men just like Lucifer wanted authority over God. The feminist movement is fueled by pride and led by the Devil.
Isaiah 14:14 "I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."
Feminists believe that men and women are equal, but the Bible states otherwise (Lev. 27:1-7). Truth is, no one is equal. We are all together different. The woman is said to be the weaker vessel in the Bible. That being said, the husband is to dwell with his wife with knowledge and give her honor.
If the husband is not obeying God as he should, the wife will not get him any closer to God by nagging him or being hateful. God uses a woman's subjection, faithfulness and charity to get a man back to serving the Lord. It is not the woman's job to correct the man, rather it is the job of God alone. If the husband is going against God's word or leading his family the wrong way, God will punish him and the husband will reap what he sows (Gal. 6:8). The wife should pray for the husband to get right with the Lord. If a woman tries to take the place of the Lord by leading the man, it will only make the situation worse. If a young woman disrespects, disobeys and back talks her father then she will be very likely to do the same with her husband after the puppy love wears off (Prov. 27:15). Young men, be careful with who you marry. Her taking your last name will not automatically make her want to submit to you and respect you.
Note: I do not believe it is wrong for a woman to lovingly give advice to her husband when she sees that he is making a wrong decision or a decision that is against God's word.
The woman should live a pure life in her actions and speech. Her main focus in her life should not be her beauty, nor clothes, but her walk with the Lord. A godly woman has a meek and quiet spirit. To be meek is to be gentle, soft, humble, submissive and not easily provoked or irritated. A woman that is a feminist will usually be loud, proud and hateful instead of quiet as God expects.
In the Bible, Sara respected Abraham so much that she called him lord. The word "lord" is defined as "a ruler". The author of the Bible is not the author of feminism. Feminists would be outraged at that comment. If you are a woman and you feel the same, I suggest you humble yourself to God and repent of your prideful thoughts and ways.
1 Peter 3:1 "Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; 2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered."
Wives are commanded by the Lord to submit to their husbands in EVERYTHING. The husband is the head and leader of the wife and not the other way around. The husband is to make the decisions in the home. His decisions should be based on God's word because God is the husband's head. Many women act like they agree to this, until their decision is not the same as their husbands, then true submission is revealed. In no way am I saying the husband should not listen to his wife, he should, but the wife should not punish her husband if he does not agree with her. The husband is to love his wife, so much that he would die for her like Christ died for the church.
Ephesians 5:22 "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;"
Colossians 3:18 "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord."
1 Corinthians 11:3 "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."
The woman is commanded to reverence her husband, which means respect her husband. The more the wife respects her husband, the more God will bless her and her marriage. The man is also told to love his wife like himself. I encourage the husbands to think of ways that might make his wife feel unloved and depart from those ways, IF Biblical. The same with the wives, it is not enough to just say you "respect" your husband. Are you showing it by the way you talk to him and the way act towards him?
Ephesians 5:33 "Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband."
Eve was created from Adam's rib. God created the woman for Adam, not the other way around. The woman is man's help meet. This goes directly against feminism. You cannot be a Bible Believer and a feminist.
1 Corinthians 11:8 "For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man."
Genesis 2:18 "And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him."
Women are to live godly, not to gossip or complain constantly, spread lies or drink alcohol. They are to teach other women how to love their husbands and children. Women should have discretion and be modest in her living and apparel. The wife is to be a keeper at home by cooking and cleaning for her husband and children. By doing this she is serving and honoring not just her husband, but the Lord also. She is to obey her husband and if she does not then the Bible says that she has blasphemed the holy word of God. To blaspheme is to speak evil of something, so a disobedient wife is speaking evil of God. Feminists are blasphemers of God.
Titus 2:3 "The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
Any woman that does not obey God's word on her role as a wife and mother will destroy her household. We can see that the Bible was right because the feminist movement has made the divorce rate double.
Proverbs 14:1 "Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands."
The wife should dress modestly for the Lord and her husband. Long hair is said to be the glory of a woman, so women should not have short hair (1 Cor. 11:15, Rev. 9:8). She is to dress in woman apparel and not men's apparel (Deut. 22:5). I will not get into the dress and pants debate, but I will say that every woman should dress the way she would want to be dressed in front of Jesus Christ. A woman should not show her body off to any other man besides her husband. Women should not show off their curves, cleavage or thighs (Exodus 28:42) - this includes wearing tight clothing. The way she dresses should not bring attention to her body, rather her face. A woman should not be known by how "sexy" she looks, instead she should be known by how godly she lives her life.
Women should be in subjection to their husband and not usurp authority over him. The man is the authority of the woman and God is the authority of the man. Women are easily deceived whether they admit it or not, so it is not the will of God for them to be the leader in the home. God looks down on bossy and manipulative women. Be a woman that is praised of God, not a woman that is praised by the worldly feminist movement.
1 Timothy 2:9 "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."
I suggest that every woman read Proverbs once a month and apply it to their lives, especially Proverbs 31. I will briefly cover the chapter, but will not post the whole chapter, so please read it on your own. The context of the chapter is the description of a virtuous woman.
Verse 11 describes a loyal, honest and trustworthy woman. Verse 12 says that she will do good and not evil to her husband until death. Verses 13-22 describe a woman that takes care of her family by hard work, such as cooking and cleaning. I am not against women working outside of the home. I believe in America that it is financially smart to have two incomes. I believe verses 13-25 describes a woman that will not only be a keeper at the home, but will also do anything to provide for her family and that includes working. Just because a woman's main role is in the home does not mean she cannot work, nor does the Bible ever tell the woman that she cannot work. Verse 26 describes a woman that has wisdom and kindness in her heart. Verse 27 describes a woman that is not lazy, but busy and caring. Verses 28-31 shows that this kind of woman will be praised by her husband and children and be blessed by God. Every woman that fears the Lord should want to be like the Proverbs 31 woman.
Women should spend more time in the Bible and prayer with God than in they do in front of the mirror. Women should want to look pretty for their husbands, but any godly man would prefer a woman that fears God and obeys His word. In the end, the only thing that will matter will be what she has done for Christ. This includes her role as being a wife, mother and child of God.
Proverbs 31:10 "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies."
Proverbs 31:30 "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised."
There are 13 types of women in the book of Proverbs. I will give the list below with scripture references. Please take the time to look up the verses and read them.
1. Proverbs 2:16 – Strange Woman – Flattery – Forsakes guide of youth
2. Proverbs 6:24 – Evil Woman – Flattery – Lust not after beauty
3. Proverbs 6:26 – Whorish Woman – Adulteress
4. Proverbs 9:13 – Foolish Woman – Clamorous meaning loud – Simple
5. Proverbs 11:16 – Gracious Woman – Honor
6. Proverbs 11:22 – Fair Woman – Nothing without discretion
7. Proverbs 14:1 – Wise Woman – Builds house
8. Proverbs 21:9 – Brawling Woman – Argue/fight
9. Proverbs 21:19 - Contentious & Angry Woman – Enjoys dispute
10. Proverbs 27:15 – Contentious Woman
11. Proverbs 30:20 – Adulterous Woman – No conscious
12. Proverbs 30:23 – Odious Woman – Hateful
13. Proverbs 31:10 – Virtuous Woman – Price above rubies – Honest & Caring (Prov 12:4)
In conclusion, we see that the Bible and Feminism go directly against each other. A woman cannot be a feminist and obey God's word. Feminism is a devilish movement that promotes unbiblical philosophy, pride and rebellious women that destroy homes. This article is not my opinion, rather Biblical truth backed up with scripture after scripture. I pray that this article will be a blessing and help to women that want to serve the Lord faithfully.
