On a Web Site called Amish Traditions, secular psychologists in superior fashion examine and remark on the Amish in a manner that treats their way of life and practice of the Christian faith inspired by their 17th century A.D. Anabaptist origins as in need of their therapeutic treatments. They especially find the women in need of such help.7 Although the Lord in His Word does not require the extent to which the Amish physically withdraw from the modern world or some of the religious restrictions they have undertaken, neither has He sanctioned the full embrace of the world’s doctrines such as feminism in defiant rebellion against His Word plainly written by guilty non-Amish Christians!
The faithfulness of the Amish to the centuries old teachings of their Anabaptist fathers is analogous to the 6th century B.C. Rechabites God holds up to Israel (Jeremiah 35). He commends the faithful obedience of the Rechabites to their family patriarch, the way of life and practices he had instituted because Israel should have been doing the same with Him as their Head. Israel though, like guilty professed Christians today disobeyed and refused to repent; bringing His judgment upon them while He gave high honor to the Rechabites’ patriarch (Jeremiah 35:12-19). Truly, many Amish believers will be in glory rather than rebel, worldly minded Christians for God rewards obedience!
Concerning patriarchs, God has not done an about face from His written Word in these latter days as so many deceived professed Christians either assert and/or hope is true because they want it to be. Men have generally done as God designed to lead their families and build in the earth including work around themselves as its caretakers from Adam (Genesis 1:26, 2:7, 15; Psalm 8).8 He made man male and female with most earth creatures great and small for the purpose of procreation (Genesis 1:27-28)! The greatest help females give to their male husbands and all mankind is having children. If mankind as all other earth creatures and organisms do not reproduce, they die out.
Interestingly, with feminism’s insistence on a woman’s right to have sex without pregnancy and to murder any child conceived, our nation’s birthrate is declining.9 A declining birthrate is apparently an unforeseen natural outcome of rebelling against God’s design of and purposes for mankind by all holding to worldly feminism. There is also the God imposed consequence upon the world and those that profess to be His people who sell Him out for its doctrines and ways as it suits them. This world is destined for destruction! Professed Christians as His people are not supposed to follow after the world into that destruction, but will without repentance as God showed with ancient Israel.
God’s judgment of Israel’s ten northern tribes announced far in advance by His sent prophets occurred in 722 B.C. (2 Kings 17:5-23). It came after in their hardened hearts and unbelief “they rejected His statutes and His covenant that He had made with their fathers…,” “became idolaters, and went after the nations who were all around them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them they should not do like them,” (2 Kings 17:14-15, NKJV). The Lord testified before the universe against Israel’s rebellion by one of His 8th century prophets, Isaiah, saying in part: “Alas, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evildoers, children who are corrupters,” (Isaiah 1:1-4, NKJV)!
Micah “full of power by the Spirit of the Lord” was also among the prophets of God who cried out to condemn Israel’s corrupt kings, priests, false prophets assuring them of ‘“peace’” and the people feeling secure in their religion; explaining why there was no answer from God before the judgment he foretells (Micah 3, NKJV). In a scathing indictment perfectly in sync with the reality of our times and guilty professing Christianity he writes of Israel: “Her heads judge for a bribe, her priests teach for pay and her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on the Lord, and say, ‘Is not the Lord among us? No harm can come upon us,’” (Micah 3:11, NKJV). How deceived they were!
Israel did not listen to God as is the case among guilty professed Christians today who reason being wrong on the feminism issue is not enough to send them to Hell. But if you will hear the divine charge in this post, you must realize as Judas did too late you are being a traitor to Christ and de facto apostate; willfully siding in unbelief driven sin with Satan and his world system expressed through the surrounding culture against your professed Lord and not so subtly asserting He has been unrighteousness (Matthew 26:14-25, 47-50, 27:3-10; Mark 8:34-38; Titus 1:10-16; 1 John 3:4-9)! Israel’s punishment has spanned millennia and will end; without repentance, yours will be eternal as it is warned in the Lord’s Word (Romans 1:28-2:11; Hebrews 3:7-19, 10:26-39, 12:12-17; Jude 5-15).
Therefore, until He returns, Christ’s faithful followers are to maintain God’s original design of man which is the purpose of His and His apostle’s instruction about it in the Bible. As He and they affirm, God made man male and female along with their standing order, roles and responsibilities in accord with His will for them in this present mortal age (Mark 10:2-9; 1 Corinthians 11:3; Colossians 3:18-21, NKJV). For this reason, this Ministry continues to press His cause to those who will hear! From the Scriptures to help as He has led, I have written The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics and other resources upholding the Lord’s design and will for males, females and the family that have not changed and will not change until He makes immortality the norm of human existence!10

The world ruled by Satan is pushing his great deception hard in these latter days; namely, that all of the social changes upending God’s order of mankind with gender roles and responsibilities in the family are going to permanently endure. Not so, according to God Almighty who long ago announced the end of all kingdoms in the eternal triumph of His own through His Son (Isaiah 2:1-4, 9:6-7; Daniel 2:31-45, 7:13-14; Micah 4:1-3; Revelation 11:15)! Now, the world in rebellion against God and His coming Kingdom can believe the lie as it wishes, but those that profess to be Christians are not supposed to standing firm in the never changing truth that is Jesus Christ (Hebrews 13:8)!
The Lord has led me to confront the lie with the truth especially from His prophetic Word in the footnotes of recent posts. They make clear He will push back against the rebel social engineers of worldly feminism among others destroying the family as He designed it even before He returns to visibly install His Kingdom on earth.1 The reality that the ostensible positive advance of worldly feminism now, at its triumphant peak is about to be turned back forever should be deeply sobering to professed Christian males and females that have banked their souls on the hope that somehow God was in it for the good even to the extent of corrupting and setting aside His Word to make it so.
However, Satan has successfully deceived these worldly minded Christians in convincing them that good can come out of his evil (Genesis 3:1-11)! Indeed, none of the relative few legitimate grievances of feminism such as pay inequity that should be fixed have justified the evil of attacking to dismantle God’s order of mankind.2 But like the Trojan gift horse the ancient Greeks used to hide in before coming out to war against and defeat Troy, so, worldly feminism has packaged itself as advocates for the positive advance of females while destroying them, their families and communities; duping many professed Christians and related entities into supporting their cause in the process.3
Their cause is ultimately Satan’s cause which means his successful temptation to lure many professed Christians and their entities into supporting worldly feminism under the pretext of advancing females is a two for one win for him since they are also aiding and abetting him in his war against God! This is spiritually unthinkable, unconscionable and a betrayal of the Lord who’s Word guilty professed Christians so easily compromise, corrupt and twist to justify their transgression and iniquity. For the implication in their departure from God’s Word is that He and it have been wrong and unfair in the treatment of females from the beginning! What, God unrighteous (Romans 9:14)?4
Even if you say, “we reject the more extreme assertions of secular feminism such as a woman’s right to murder her unborn child, but stand for the positive and progressive advancement of females into all heretofore exclusively male instances of authority and work,” it is an affront to God and His Word since the unspoken implication is again that He has been wrong! This is as arrogantly high handed as the creature can get before its Creator and expected from the unbelieving unsaved, but not those that profusely profess to know and love Him (Romans 9:20)! This is the mind of those professed Christians who have corrupted themselves still following after the world and its ways.
By God’s express will we Christians have been called out of the world; renouncing our former allegiances, worldviews and ungodly conduct for the sake of Christ, His eternal Kingdom and biblical worldview (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 4:17-24). But many “who exchanged the truth of God for the lie” of worldly feminism and its perpetual endurance have been so effortlessly deceived and drawn away by Satan because they have not turned their backs on the world (Romans 1:25, NKJV). They still love and revere particularly its opportunities for financial gain!5 As a result, when God and the Word are falsely portrayed as unfair toward females to them--as if this were really possible for the perfectly “Just One”--it is believed (John 1:1-5, 14-18; Acts 7:51-53; 1 Timothy 6:6-10, NKJV).
Professed Christian females are seduced by their ambitions and lust for power feminism insists is righteous since males have these. Professed Christian males are seduced by fear of appearing oppressive, sexist and misogynistic in the face of feminism’s false contention that true equality demands the removal of all forms of male leadership inherit in God’s order of mankind beginning in the family.6 Like Esau who desperately sold his birthright for some food, many males in and outside of Christianity have sold their election to lead by God to females to escape their wrath not considering His wrath is exceedingly greater and eternally devastating (Genesis 25:29-34; Revelation 21:8)! All fear being labeled “extreme” like they and the world see the Amish who generally reject modernity.

5 Guilty pastors, elders, and other church leaders motivated to keep churches going and solvent have heavily fallen for the lie since females predominantly fill them as
have Christian leaders of ministries and businesses (to include Christian media concerns) motivated by financial profit because females also dominate the markets for
the purchase of Christian merchandise. This tendency to rationalize away and/or jettison God’s commandments, spiritual principles, morals and ethics in the Bible for the
sake of financial gain is an evil thread running throughout Christian history clearly seen for example, in the enslavement of my forefathers. It is soon to be done by many
when the decision to “worship” and take “the mark or the name of the beast” has to be made in the face of God’s warning (Revelation 13:11-18, 14:9-13, NKJV).
