Feminism and the Modern Home (Part 2)

The issue in the minds of most liberal women is the idea of equality. They feel that to be a housewife is a disgrace and that they should not have to subject themselves to that low degree. They feel that the position of housewife is a lower position and that they should not have any more responsibility to fulfill that role than should the husband. The problem they have is that they look at the proper Biblical role of women as a lesser position than what they could achieve through other means. This is twisted, corrupted thinking. The Biblical pattern provides for the care and love of women. It provides for them to be honored and exalted. Yet the modernist looks at it as the opposite. The workforce is a hard place and a hard path to go. It is a place that the husband should not want the wife to have to lower herself to. If God leads then the husband and wife will go that direction, but that should not be the primary desire of the husband. He should have a desire to deliver his wife from having to live through life in the modern workforce. That is the once accepted Biblical pattern for women and the home.

This is the trend that has taken the minds of American women by storm in our modern generation of Americans. This trend has led to the breaking up of the family, the insecurity of children based on the lack of love and acceptance no longer being found in the home, and many more issues. Women were at one time the primary teacher of the children in the home. Today the public school systems have become the mental mothers of children in many ways. The school system is now the one who determines and teaches the children the philosophies that will affect him or her for the rest of their lives. They now provide for the children counselors and psychologists in an attempt to provide the emotional needs that the children can no longer find in their homes. They have counselors that will help them to determine their life occupation which was at one time the role of the mother and father. The public school system is brainwashing America’s youth into believing Atheism, evolution, and many other blasphemous lies of the devil. And this brainwashing is being allowed in part because of the rise of the feminist movement. The wife is now at work when she was at one time at home teaching, training, and loving her children. Stan has stepped in, transformed the philosophy of women, and is now destroying our children by the millions and millions.

We must understand that the way that God ordained is the way that God blesses. People cannot have proper, functional families and live in such a way that is in direct rebellion to the plan of God. America needs to turn back to God in the area of the family if she ever hopes to see God’s blessing on her again. The transforming of the family has brought about the transforming of the nation toward the sins of the devil and of hell. This transforming of the family has been heavily influenced by the rise and exaltation of the modern feminist movement.

  • A hardy amen to part 2 also!

    God has bless me and my husband with 5 beautiful children. We will not hand them over to anyone else to teach and raise. Let the world think less of me, I don't care. Hey, I want to give them a good example so they may serve the Lord well, take care of their children well...and take care of me and hubby when we're old and crusty! :)

  • This is good stuff!

    I've had to work in the world and it seems alsmost like I was pushed into it (I don't come from a Christian home) and I really didn't like it. Being a housewife is an incredible opportunity for a woman. She gets the privilage to see her children grow up and to train them in the way they should go. That's a sacrifice for the husband as he provides for his family.

  • Bro Nicholas,
    Thank you for the much needed posts on the home. That is such a great burden of mine. As I read what you have written, I'm saying "amen" while thanking God for someone else who sees the trouble that even Christian homes are in. It makes me heart-sick to hear so many Christians who have no clue to the instructions for the home which God clearly lays out in His Word. God help us.

  • Excellent!!! This is not something that is popular today but is needful!

  • When women CHOOSE the work force instead of being the homemakers God intended for them to be, they don't realize that they are adding a curse to their lives. Adam's curse for his sin in the garden was having to work by the sweat of is face in order to have food for him and his family.
    Thanks for not being afraid to tell the truth!

  • Wow. I am overwhelmed at the fantastic positive response the this series of posts has generated. I can't begin to express how appreciative of each comment that you all made! What an encouragement!

  • Courtney, the point that you made about the curse is absolutely perfect. Thank you all for not taking offense at this post!

  • Honey this is an excellent post. It is so true. I like what Courtney said about it being a curse that womeen place on themselves when they choose to work outside the home. Sometimes it is necessary that they do. I think of my mom and how she has worked outside the home for many years to take care of us. I think that the difference is in her is that she's never forgotten that her family is first after God and not her job.

  • Nicholas what do you think about a couple who is newly married with no children yet. Do you think it is wrong for the wife to work outside of the home?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, At 12:26 PM  

  • Dear anonymous,

    No I don't think that it is wrong. I just think that it is not the best idea in the world. Sometimes it is necessary for a newly wed couple to do that. My wife and I are in that situation, but I am working hard to get her out of that situation because I do not want her to have to live like that for very long. Thank you for the question.
