Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but they will not find me, because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord. Proverbs 1:28-29
Feminism is going to the extreme in our culture. There was a time when this movement did some great things for women such as securing voting rights, equal educational and career opportunities, and equal pay. It was a time when brave women gave a voice to the long history of unfair treatment of women. And if you look at America now, this movement has overwhelmingly accomplished its original purpose. How thankful I am for that.
Yet today, I believe it’s doing more harm than good because of the shift of focus in women who are pushing the idea that men and women are inheritly the same.
Sorry ladies, we are not! And to suggest that we are poses a huge problem in our created natures and is leading to the devastation of destroying not only families, but confusing the minds of our generation in understanding what is proper behavior and what is not.
If a woman is telling a man I’m just like you and don’t treat me any other way, then how can a man who is naturally created to be the protector of women see when he needs to step up and protect her? And how can a woman, who naturally needs to be the nurturer, be vunerable enough to nurture without it being perceived as weakness?
I’m not saying there are not variances between each individual in how different characteristics play out, but as a general rule, we must recognize men and women are different, and that’s okay because God created them special that way.
And therein lies the problem. Wisdom from God about this issue is all around, but because women are refusing to accept the blaring facts that they were created for very special purposes in fear that it will show some weakness and take away their power, they will have to face the consequences.
Families will continue to be destroyed, their children will suffer, men won’t be gentlemen and value women for who they are, men will give the reigns over to women to protect themselves, and gender confusion will run rampant.
And what happens when the degradation of society becomes so bad that they are suffering in the depths of their egotistical, feministic knowledge? They will throw their hands up in disbelief, playing the victim, asking for help from the very people they said they didn’t need it from, and wondering how in the world they got there. No valid answer will be given because to receive it, they would have to choose the very knowledge they have so vehemently neglected. They would have to choose the fear of the Lord, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is where the true purpose and value of a woman is found.
So, how does God define the purpose and value of a woman? Be looking for part 2 of this post to find out.

Lord God almighty, I know You are the giver of knowledge and it is in honor of You as my Creator that I seek it. Help me not to foolishly neglect what You have so freely given because of my own fears or arrogance. Help me to learn the reasons and uniqueness for which You created both men and women so that I can better understand my purpose and value in this world. Amen.
Truth in love,
