The Lies of Feminism.

“Why aren’t you a feminist?”

If I had a dollar for every time I’m asked that question.

Here’s the deal, I have been very blunt and honest about my opinions on feminism, and surprisingly enough, I’ve gotten more backlash over that, than I ever had about other hot topic such as homosexuality, abortion, sex before marriage, and so on. In this world, feminism is a must according to 99% of people. If you are not a feminist, you are basically labeled a woman hater, someone who thinks women don’t deserve/need rights, etc etc etc. Feminists go completely against the word of God, despite this, there are so many feminists who claim to be Christian’s, bought with the blood of Christ. They do not recognize the fact that women are not equal to men. We are not the same.

Men and women are not the same, and therefor, they are not equal.

We see proof of this all throughout the Bible. Men are naturally more competitive, stronger (emotionally and physically) God makes it clear that the male is supposed to be the head of the house, the bread winner, the leader. He is meant to strengthen his wife emotionally, to support her. The female is called to be his helper, his second in command. She is naturally a more gentle soul, meek, humble. The Bible speaks of our differences, and if you are honest with yourself, feminists completely disregard that. They may say that they realize we are different, but if they truly did..they would realize that we are also not equals, and we shouldn’t be. This isn’t to say the female should follow the male blindly into sin or trouble, or that she is not allowed to express her opinion respectfully or help her family in a time of need, this isn’t to say a man can not ever rely on his wife. Here is what the Bible says about being a man –

1 Timothy 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Ephesians 5:22-25 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

All throughout the Bible, God shows that the man’s rank is above the woman’s. And we can not have equality if he is to be above. Now, here’s a verse that will hopefully drive this point –

1 Peter 3:7 – 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.

The woman throughout the Word is seen as the weaker vessel. No, God isn’t saying that us women are weaklings, that we can’t do anything without a husband…but what He is saying, is that we were never meant to be above the men, or to be equal. We are meant to be meek women of God. And feminism is destroying the beauty of being a woman, a woman as God created us to be. Nowhere in the Word does it support being equal with men, or does it support feminism.

What then should be a Christian’s view of feminism? A believing woman, who is seeking to obey God and walk in peace and grace, should remember that she has equal access to all spiritual blessings in Christ. “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). A believing woman should not allow herself to be used as a pawn in the worldly agenda of the feminist movement. Men and women have a God-given privilege to fulfill the plan He has set for us. Rebellion against that plan and the arrogance that seeks to put self above God’s Word bring difficult consequences. We see those consequences in the destruction of the relationship between husbands and wives, the destruction of the family, and the loss of respect for human life. – source.

Feminism makes women believe that in order to be great, you must have accomplished things. Being a woman as the Lord meant for us to be is no longer enough. Being meek, being humble, being quiet and pure is no longer sought after. We must have accomplishments that this world praises. We must be equal with the men, we must do everything the men do and we must do it just as well. Being ourselves is no longer enough. Romans 12:3 tells us, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought.”

Feminism has forced a sexual movement onto us, it has spread the lies of sexual sameness and it has made sex into a fling, something that is no longer treasured or special. Sexual freedom has brought torment and tragedy upon women. And with feminism comes sexual “freedom.”

Feminism has tried to show women that it is okay to deny what God has given us, it has told us that it is natural to throw away what God clearly says is our will. It has made it seem like being a women as He desired us to be is us giving up on what we could be in the world’s eyes, as if it His plan is not enough. It has told us that to be feminine is to be weak.

In the attempt to blur gender distinctions, feminists declared war on the concept of gender-related characteristics. The qualities that marked feminine women–softness, sweetness, kindness, the ability to relate well–were judged as silly, stupid and weak. Only what characterized men–characteristics like firmness, aggressiveness, competitiveness–were deemed valuable. – Source.

 1 Corinthians 11:7 says that man is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man, but feminism has made it seem like femininity is our weakness, not our strength.

Lastly, feminism is destroying men by making it seem as though women need a feminine man. We can not have equality without completely ruining God’s rules for each gender, by completely ruining gender roles. Gender roles were made for a reason. We have not only destroyed Biblical femininity, we have destroyed Biblical manhood. True men of God are almost nonexistent because feminism has pushed them into becoming weaklings.

When we strive for equality, we are destroying God’s desire for men and women.

    Pretty much agree with you on all of this. I agree with you when you say men and women aren’t the same, but I do believe we are equal in God’s eyes, not the same, but equal; equally loved, worth an equal amount of His love. As John 3:16 says, “God so loved the WORLD …” Which I believe indicates an equal amount of love and worth and favor and delight for both men and women. Women aren’t the same as men, but they are equal in worth. Both are worthy to be loved as much as God loved Jesus. I believe one of the differences between us and Christ is simply that He had the revelation of how much God loved Him. He understood, and He believed in His Father’s love. And we see in John, in one if Jesus’s prayers, He prays for us (all of humanity), that we would have the revelation of His love for us as God loved Him.

      Very true! I wish I had of thought to point that out! God’s love for us is most definitely equal to what He feels for the men, and our worth is equal in His eyes. 🙂 That is the one thing we are definitely equal on!

    I’m going to respond to a lot of different parts of this post so stick with me. First, it’s inaccurate to claim that you can’t be a Christian and a feminist or that all feminists aren’t Christians. I’m living proof that that’s incorrect and I’d love to talk to you more about it. Second, I can’t accept your statement that men and women are different therefore they are not equals. With that claim, you can say that a black and a white person are different therefore they are unequal. That’s not right. We are not asking to look the same, act the same, or be the same. We are asking for equal opportunities, pay, and respect. Sameness and equality are not synonymous in the slightest. Physically we are different, you’re right but the Bible does not say that we are not equals. Your 1 Peter verse is the perfect example. It says that we are the weaker vessel physically but then goes on to say that we are heirs TOGETHER. Aka, equals. I’d also like to point out that nowhere in the Bible does it talk about submission in a man/woman sense. It always talks about submission in the wife/husband sense. I will submit to my husband but I’m not asked to submit to every man. And my husband and I will be equals with different roles as the Bible speaks about. Your points on accomplishments and sex also confuse me. I don’t feel pressured to be accomplished as a feminist. I feel as if I have the opportunities to be accomplished which is what I want. Casual sex has also been around well before modern-day feminism. I’m just not quite sure you understand what feminism is and I’d love to explain it to you better.

      First off, to go off of the white/black comparison – the difference between white people and black people is a shade of skin. The Bible never talks about race like that. It’s a difference in skin color, not gender. Males and females are a far different topic than race, completely and utterly different. Black and white and Mexican people, they all have the same rules of the Bible on equality. And that’s about gender. I don’t care what color you are.
      All of these points I’ve made, I’ve made after reading article after article about feminism written by feminists themselves, after talking with feminists, and after doing my own Biblical research. This is feminism in a nutshell. It *does* push sexual freedom, as well as complete equality, and that complete equality does go against what the Word of God says about the roles. We are heirs together, but that doesn’t make our jobs the same in the long run, like Lael commented up above. We have the same worth in God’s eyes, but that doesn’t mean we’re the same. If we were truly the same, we could be equal, but we’re not.
      The Bible talks about women submitting under Godly men (husband or not) all throughout the Bible. Should we submit to the ungodly? No, we shouldn’t. But we are to submit under our Godly leaders; men.
      Feminism is indeed asking women and men to be equal and the same. Look at the way that transgender stuff is being pushed, at how men and women are being told that wearing each others types of clothing is fine, and other things. When we start trying to go against the Bible equality wise, we’re going to destroy everything He said about being different. We’re going to start delving into trying to be the same, and we’re not.
      All I’ve learned about feminism has been taught by feminists, and the things they’ve written, said, and told me personally.
      I linked to a few articles in this post, you should check them out. 🙂

    I heard a really interesting discussion about this topic the other day. In Genesis the word used to say God made woman to be a helpmate of man is the same work used later in Psalm 33 describing God as helper. People often interperet the word “helper” negatively; however, it can not be negative is God is the same kind of helper. To help is to aid the primary doer who is too weak to accomplish the task alone. God helps us when we are too weak, and woman is made to help man who was too weak to accomplish alone. Man and Woman are made to work together in harmony to accomplish the task of dominion on earth for man was not able to accomplish the task alone. Woman is not inherently weaker or inherently inferior. Woman was placed on earth for a very very important purpose, to help man to accomplish his task. Women are not the same as men; however they are equally valued in God’s eyes but in different ways and for different values.

      Love that! Very true. I think the #1 issue I have with feminism is not the whole “equal” thing, because really, as you said, God loves us equally, but the fact that the equality they are demanding is not true equality. It is pushing one gender down as if to say females are the same, or even better. Most feminists I know are pushing equality and sameness, as if they coexist. The equality they are asking for can’t happen unless the world decides that we are the same thing.

    I think you hit the nail on the head in that last comment. It’s not true equality. The whole feminism thing I think started out as something entirely different from what it has morphed into now. That happens with everything it seems like. This whole politically correct and equality for all fanaticism is driving me nuts. Just like with the racism… they say they just want blacks to be equal to whites, but the way it looks to me is what they actually want is to browbeat the whites down so they are inferior. The feminists seem to be doing the same thing. They say they just want to be equal, but they are browbeating men into being inferior to do it. It doesn’t work that way! You can’t become equal to someone else by tearing them down! Anyway I never can get my thoughts sorted out to make a point, but hopefully you know what I’m saying.

    I personally have no problem being second to my husband. I’m happy to let him take the reins and protect and provide for me. He is stronger than me, both physically and emotionally and I appreciate his support. All that being said, I do have a full time job, so we are both making money. I don’t make near as much as him, but that’s never bothered me and it’s not because I’m female, it’s because of the job I chose. We also share responsibilities at the house since we both work forty hours a week. I don’t think that goes against our faith though, it’s just what’s required to make it these days.
