Beyond the instances of royalty or more widely business ownership in the Bible, contemporary feminism’s vision for females is unfettered access to authority and power wherever it is to be found as well as to do whatever males do! A number consider all prior restrictions to this ambition from Eve until now, oppression. So now, besides assigning females to a second class status in His order of mankind, God is also blasphemously accused of being an oppressor since His role assignments that call for them to be companions and helpers to their husbands in the work of governance and procreation stifles any personal ambition to independently strike out to do anything else.6
Certainly, no professed Christian woman I am aware of has verbalized the accusation God is an oppressor of females, but cleverly only attribute this to men. Nevertheless, whether they realize it or not, the accusation is against God too, since He created man and put His order in place! And as for saying men installed the oppression of women into the Bible as its writers, you again accuse God since it is written, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God” and “is right;” the apostle Peter adding, “for prophecy (with application to all Scripture) never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit,” (Psalm 33:4-9; 2 Timothy 3:16a; 2 Peter 1:21, NKJV).
The sovereign God did not create man male or female to operate independent of Him, but in accord with His will or else, why are we under judgment of Adam’s disobedience (Romans 5:12-14)? Setting down His will for the creatures created is the prerogative of God as Creator is it not? Of course, this is the reason many feminists are also atheists and evolutionists so, in their darkened understanding they might be free from the rule of God (they falsely think), who has left the breadcrumbs of His existence and power in and all around mankind. Even so, they still invent and bow to many false gods as demons, worship the creation and are objects of His wrath (Romans 1:18-32)!
Disastrously, through sharing in the disgruntled mindset of worldly rebel feminists and with the murderous, autocratic, pushiness of Jezebel and Athaliah, guilty professed Christian females are corrupting God’s Word to bring it into line with the deceitful instruction of demons in these “latter times,” (1 Timothy 4:1, NKJV). After guilt tripping and emotionally manipulating them, they coerce men with them to craft new Bibles that remove God’s election of male leadership and accountability at all levels of human society beginning in the family right down to the use of masculine pronouns that offend their view of equality.7 Still, without this, allies to their evil cause in Christendom is expansive.
Count among them every professed Christian scholar, missionary, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher that has torn down God’s order of mankind presented from Genesis to Revelation by wickedly relegating its assertion to only the cultural and social customs of those times that are now, passé as they seek to please feminists, not Him.8 They also cite notable Christian patriarchs and figures of history who may have advocated for greater female involvement in church leadership; the experiences of those females now, claiming a call from God to take authority over men in His house as pastors, leaders and teachers to justify as well as avoid confessing and repenting from their error.
Despite the use of the educationally credentialed, ecclesiastical authorities and media star power to push the feminist agenda within professing Christianity, outside of God’s Word, none of what they say is finally authoritative as the guilty know and impresses no one except fellow rebels and those that do not obey their Bibles anyway! Because of the foregoing and advocacy of all but those considered the most obnoxious of biblically conservative Christians such as myself in the midst, professing Western Christianity is seen by the world to be an ally wickedly endorsing the feminist quest to obliterate God’s design of females, their roles, responsibilities and rank in His order of mankind.9 The Lord Jesus is unequivocal: you cannot be both for and against Him (Luke 11:23)!
Meanwhile, contrary to the deceitful feminist propaganda this rebellion and the rise of females to power is improving society, marginalized men are confused, conflicted about and abdicating their roles and responsibilities as husbands and fathers.10 Their sexual immorality, lawless violence, mass murders and of each other along with suicide increase. Their mistreatment, abuse and murder of women continue unabated. The marriages of professed and non-Christians are regularly crumbling in divorce and many families are in dysfunctional disarray. If this is supposed to be the feminist utopia in the making, it is actually a dystopia growing worse by the day!11 It cannot and never will be that the rebellion of any of His creatures leads to something better than what God had or has in mind!
6 Read the October 4, 2020 post, The Great Woman Of God, under the category, The Cause. Also, in part two of the two-part Willful Ignorance Destroys, that begins
February 21, 2021 under the category, Black History, read how liberal professed Christians make the charge that both women and gay men have been oppressed by
biblically conservative Christians giving faithful regard and obedience to the commandments and instruction of God’s Word written about them.
7 This is a great evil and the guilty will not go unpunished by God (2 Peter 3:14-17)! Read through the most recent editions of the New International Version of the Bible
(NIV) among others that are following this path to placate feminists in the manner of Aaron toward Israel when he crafted the golden calf idol knowing better and “the
angel of the church in Thyatira” rebuked by Christ (warning us) about Jezebel by type (Exodus 19:16-20:6, 32:1-24; Revelation 2:18-23, NKJV).
8 The hand washing “tradition of the elders” enforced by the Pharisees and “kiss” of the apostles (still practiced in the East) are plain examples of cultural and social cus-
tom in the New Testament (Mark 7:1-13; Romans 16:16; 1 Peter 5:14, NKJV). These and similar cultural and social customs of men are not equivalent to God’s endur-
ing order of mankind ordained at creation and basic to marital organization as well as essential continuing human social cohesion and stability.
9 See the November 14, 2014 post, Christian Women And Restoring Men, under the category, Instruction and on July 28, 2019, Roles, Rank And Responsibilities under
the category, God’s Creatures. Among the many consequences of professed Christians in the feminist rebellion against God’s order of mankind is their responsibility
for and inability without glaring hypocrisy to say anything against outcomes such as gender confusion. God’s judgment of all the guilty is just!
10 I write about this reality and provide statistical support in The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics.
11 For information on violence against women check out a recent feminist report. View statistics on our nation’s divorce rate at the CDC Web Site. While statistics vary,
I was able to read various opinion and scholarly prepared pieces on America’s dysfunctional families and recommend a review of the 2015 broader Pew Research
Report, The American Family that gives statistics on the rise of single parent households.
It is one thing for unsaved women to balk at and reject God’s design of females and rank in His established order of mankind during this present age; it is quite another thing when the females that profess to be saved Christians knowingly reject God’s design for themselves in rebellion against their Lord also. An all out rebellion against God’s design of females, their roles, responsibilities and rank in His order of mankind is a recent phenomenon of history that is worsening in its negative outcomes and now, at its peak in these latter days, nearing its end as I have written in other posts.1
Among the blasphemous planks rebel female and male feminists have in their platform of all out rebellion against God, His Word and Christ is that females are wrongly and unfairly assigned an inferior second class status in His order of mankind (Psalm 2:1-3). So seductively persuasive is this deceit and false accusation of Satan on par with his masterstroke with Eve in the garden (Genesis 3:1-5), many professed Christian females, males and pastors across social ideologies have bought into it over the past century and intensely so since the mid-1960s.2 On the surface apart from a faith enabled, intimate knowledge of God in a biblical worldview, it would seem the rebels have something.
However, those who by faith continuously fellowship with God and know His Word realize His perfect character and purposes for man would never allow Him to treat the creature of His love with such contempt (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 31:30-32:4; Psalm 8:3-8). For man the creature made in God’s image is both male and female from the beginning as Christ affirms (Genesis 1:27, 5:1-2; Matthew 19:1-6; Mark 10:1-9). Though the female was created second after, out of and for the male, God did this to indisputably establish His order of mankind, accountability and purpose of procreation (Genesis 1:28, 2:7, 15-25, 3:6-24, 5:3-5; 1 Corinthians 11:2-12, 14:34-40; 1 Timothy 2:11-15).
Now, let me pause here to ensure that though in love He cares for your salvation, I am not writing these things yet again as the Lord leads to convince the unsaved hardened in rebellion. I write to the daughters of this age who profess faith in Him and are faithful because He cares that you be encouraged in the truth; that those who vacillate in or have already capitulated to rebel feminism might come to their spiritual senses and repent (2 Timothy 2:24-26)! Females are not second class to God because you do not have the same roles, responsibilities and rank in His order as males! Those professed Christian women thinking this way diminish their own value as God designed you.3
You are also proving yourselves influenced by or fully captive to the thinking of the world culture under Satan’s dominion no matter how much you attempt to falsely justify the thinking by re-interpreting the Bible to read feminism into it or onto the godly females presented therein. Since feminism as rebellion against God and His order of mankind originates from the instigation of demons that do not die, there are a few feminists in Bible history beginning with Eve in her ignorance and followed by Jezebel, Athaliah and Vashti as examples who all suffered the consequences (Genesis 3:12-13, 16a; 1 Kings 16:29-33, 18:1-4, 19:1-3, 21:1-26; 2 Kings 9:30-37, 11:1-16; Esther 1).
In contrast to the many more godly women in the Bible (including Deborah who did not lead out Israel’s army to battle or usurp God’s chosen male commander, but accompanied him at his insistence as a comforting “mother”--Judges 4:4-10, 5:7, NKJV), the foregoing named feminist rebels starting with Eve all acted in independent self-will to lead out in their actions and defiance of God’s order and/or Word (Genesis 3:17a).4 Jezebel and Athaliah typify the aggressive feminism of our day in their ambitious grab for and use of authority. Knowing the divine order of mankind and all of the cultural expectations of her as queen, wife of her husband the king, Vashti knowingly disrespected him before the whole kingdom in her defiance of his marital and royal headship (James 4:17).
Godly and humble Esther on the other hand, who had not ambitiously sought to be queen and replaced Vashti, showed her husband, the king, great respect and earned his trusting favor (Esther 2:1-18).5 Not by usurping the king, wicked scheming or the manipulative wielding of authority behind the scenes did the Jewish queen Esther prevail to save her people from genocide, but through faith in God, fasting, prayer and courage to do as the Lord providentially led her (Esther 4:1-16, 5:1-8, 7-8)! Please note that while in God’s order of mankind the man, Mordecai, who served as Esther’s father outranked her, after giving her wise and challenging counsel he submitted to her conferred authority as queen in this unique context to do as she “commanded him,” (Esther 4:17, NKJV).

3 This does not mean many sinful men in ignorance throughout history have not thought of and treated females as second class. Thinking of and treating females as in-
ferior is one of the many tragic consequential works of sin in mankind that only God can righteously and finally correct beginning with salvation! Carefully read the series
of four posts that begin April 22, 2018 where the Lord leads me to write about the value of women from a biblical worldview all under the category, God’s Creatures.
4 Genesis 3:17a does not mean there is never a time a man should give heed to the counsel of his wife. However, if that counsel is to disobey or defy God or the laws of
man, then, a husband must do what is right in the sight of God! All the more reason for a Christian man to marry an authentic Christian woman (and you, sister, be one)
so, he might receive godly counsel from his wife as did David from Abigail before he married her (1 Samuel 25:14-39).
5 Esther is one of twelve women that exemplify a character trait of the great woman of God in the image of Christ I write about in two chapters of my book, The Strong
