Feminism Attitude and Wifely Submission
I think that one of the most important things
Christian wives need to realize is that marriage was not made for their
happiness. We need to get off the pedestal! Marriage was made FOR GOD
and to Glorify Him in all that we do in our marriage. Marriage belongs
to God! He is the One who established it and created the blueprints for
it through His loving principles on how a woman should conduct herself
in the marriage with her husband.
I read an article the other day that talks about
Christian feminism. Is this an oxymoron or what? How can a feminist be a
Christ follower? How can a feminist submit to her husband? Can she
follow Christ and her ego-based ambitions at the same time? Scripture
clearly let us know that we cannot have two masters because we will love
the one and hate the other. This is because feminism and true
Christianity clash like water and oil.
So this brings me to mention all of the married
women out there who arenít actually claiming feminism but behave like
feminists by not giving their husbands the opportunity to take his
headship position, or who usurp his authority, and or who simply do
whatever they want in the marriage without any regard to their
husbandís. Scripture lets us know that a woman cannot be a feminist
and a genuine Christian at the same time.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will
hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and
despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)
So there you have it. We need to change our heart
attitude by renewing our minds to a new perspectiveóGodís
perspective. That means we NEED to get rid of all the preconceived ideas
of how we think marriage should be, and get rid of the ideas and beliefs
that others have instilled into our mental state over the years, and
refresh our minds with Godís marvelous and wonderful perspective.
Christian culture shows us that most women today
carry an attitude of feminism even though they do not claim to be a
feminist! But feminism is all too apparent in their behavior and
attitude, by how they carry themselves and by how they have given up
their God given role in marriage for a conformist role made up largely
of worldly beliefs and ideals. Wifely submission is something to be
feared and hated. This rebelliousness to Godís design for marriage has
caused many failed and unhappy marriages!
Christian women are becoming absorbed into the
culture of society because it pampers their ideals. It feels better to
fit in to popular Christian societyóits not as much work or effort.
They can claim feminism and still say they are Christian. They can
divorce their husbands and still say they are Christian, They can wear
revealing clothing and still say they are Christian. Sadly, this is a
not what Godís Word reveals to us. Jesus taught exactly the opposite
of how many professed Christian women are living today.
If we profess Christianity then why are we
following ungodly ways that lead us away from the kingdom of heaven and
separate us from God, our Father? Shouldnít a Christ-one be following
in the ways of Christ? Are we Christians or are we hypocrites? If we
want to enjoy the blessings of marriage then we need to apply what
Christ has already laid out for us for our marriage. Meaning, Christian
women are to follow Godís blueprint for marriage not the worlds
blueprint. If you are not being a helpmeet to your husbands headship
role now, then why not? What can you do to change yourself that will
help you to glorify God with your marriage role?
Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall
enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my
father, which is in heaven. . (Matthew 7:21)
