Description

The feminist movement has successfully made its way deep into our Western culture, but more importantly and unfortunately, into the Lord's church. Christians must learn to see this poisonous influence and reclaim the standard of God's biblical family.

Reclaiming Biblical Families Strengthening the biblical family in a feminized society. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Women themselves made these changes happen, very deliberately . “ . ” By Bonnie Eisenberg and Mary Ruthsdotter, the National Women's History Project. 1998

Introduction By 1900 the revolution of feminism successfully entrenched itself into the American culture. The overall movement surrounded suffrage of women’s rights. The next two waves surrounded inequalities in the political, social, recreational, and religious realms. Undetected within these movements was the deliberate destruction of God’s pattern for the biblical family: birth control, abortion rights, lesbian rights, environmentalism and witchcraft.

Conclusion Many Christians are shocked, defensive, angered, even shamed by comparing the simple teachings of God’s word to those of the feminists. Their views have chipped away even at the pillars among the Lord’s people. Please search your heart in light of God’s word which is able to make you (and your children) wise unto salvation.
