The “P” Word

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-foot-washing-image14842860

I have so often thought to myself, “I don’t think that word means what you think it means. ” And I’m referring to critics and proponents of patriarchy alike. While I have indeed met people who have twisted and used the term as a cloak for tyranny and abuse, patriarchy, rightly defined, is in fact a biblical principle. My husband explains it well in the following article written for …

Should “She, Obey Him?”

By James McDonald

God’s Word inevitably conflicts with the plans of man. For instance, the Word directs us to acknowledge the God of the Bible as the One True God—we are to have no other gods but Him. Yet the sinful heart of man is inclined to persistent idolatry, seeking to satisfy our need to worship and find assurance in anything and everything but the God of the Bible.

God’s Word tells …

What is the Opposite of Submit?

“Wives, SUBMIT to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is HEAD of the wife, as also Christ is HEAD of the church; and He is the savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is SUBJECT to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, LOVE your wives, just as Christ also LOVED the church and GAVE Himself for her…” …

The Real Women’s Liberation Movement: Christianity

I’m re-posting the following article from 2008. I have heard some argue that we should give feminism credit for many of the liberties that women enjoy today. However, we must remember that God’s ways are not our ways (Is. 55:8). And if we attempt to correct sin by using man’s methods, we implement only temporary “fixes,” while introducing new, and sometimes worse, problems. I believe this is true of feminism.

Feminism was a bandaid that carried …

The Real Women’s Liberation Movement: Christianity

“Despite the anti-Christian prejudice evident in much of the feminist movement, it is to the teachings and example of Jesus Christ that women owe most of their freedoms. The advent of Christianity raised the dignity, freedom and rights of women to levels never before known in any other culture or religion. Indeed, as one historian put it: ‘The birth of Jesus …

Just Say…Maybe?

We live in a society that tells children to “just say no” to drugs, but then insists they say “yes” to homosexual marriage. We are applauded as being understanding and compassionate if we support the “right” for a woman to murder her child; but in some states it’s a “hate crime” to teach what the Bible says about marriage. Spanking a child for …

Should women register for the draft when they turn 18?

Because of the feminist influence it is very possible that my young daughters (and yours) will soon have the “right” to be forced to register for the draft.

I can’t imagine any man being so cowardly as to sit by and allow young girls to defend grown men in the face of machine guns and terrorists and then not be utterly ashamed. Click here to watch what these brave men are willing to do for a vote.

"Her" Church?

As Jennie and I finish the last chapters of our book, Passionate Housewives Desperate for God, we are more convinced than ever before that it truly is not about us; it is all about God. When we try to focus on our own needs and wants, we consequently take our focus off of Him – the One who promised to supply all of our needs when we turn to Him and His ways. (Phil. 4:19)

I was grieved beyond …

Whitewashed Feminism

There is a sly movement afoot and it’s very dangerous and enticing. It could be called Christian feminism, except that I don’t think it’s possible for feminism to be labeled Christian. Perhaps we should call it whitewashed feminism, because though it’s seemingly softened for the Christian pallet, it’s still feminism.

It’s enticing because it feeds on a woman’s desire to be in control – and it’s sly because it claims to be based on Christianity. The current buzz …

Letter from a 17-year-old Feminist

The following excerpts are based on a letter I recieved a while back from a young lady concerned about my mental health and questioning the biblical principle of submission to authority (primarily wives submitting to their husbands). My responses to her concerns are included after each excerpt. Her name and the details to some of her questions have been changed. Please pray for Lisa …
