Feminism’s Flimsy Theological Foundation

Recently I read an article at Answers in Genesis regarding; “Does God Have a Gender?“.  The author makes the point that: “God could have created a world in which there were no gender distinctions … Thus, in creating gender and then representing himself consistently and repeatedly as male, God is making a deliberate assertion about his nature.  There is something particular about maleness that he chooses to represent his nature in a way that femaleness does not.”

Another author at the same site discusses: “Is God Male or Female?”.   That author begins by pandering to this world’s Feminists by issuing the following disclaimer: “Before we go on, it is important to note that this question is not about the equality of men and women.  Both are made in God’s image and are therefore equal (Genesis 1:27).  Rather, it is about who gets to decide how we speak about God and how we address him in prayer: people or God?”

(Previously I have delved into what Genesis 1:27 actually says regarding who is the image of God, here, and also here, as well as in other posts.)

He is partly right, in that, if men and women were both the matchless image of God most high, then they would truly be equal.  Because no image could be greater than being the image of God.

As an example: If I and my old college roommate, who both got the same degree from the same university, were to debate about who had achieved the higher ranking degree, and I started going on about how I had attended a better elementary school, everybody would realize that what elementary school I had gone to was a moot point, because our ultimate degree ranking is based upon our highest degree, it is not determined by something of lesser degree.

And so it is true, that if both male and female were designed to image the eternal Father and Son, then by definition men and women must be equal, by nature of sharing that same highest aspect of their created identity and personage.  That assumed equality, in God’s image, is the bedrock foundation upon which all Feminism was built.

But of course, like the Bible and the earliest church father’s writings all unanimously attest, women don’t image our Father & Son Godhead, like men do:

1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Ambrosiaster wrote:  Paul says that the honor and dignity of a man makes it wrong for him to cover his head, because the image of God should not be hidden. Indeed, it ought not to be hidden, for the glory of God is seen in the man. … A woman therefore ought to cover her head, because she is not the likeness of God but is under subjection.”

So the point of application is that Feminism then is exposed as a fundamentally false teaching based upon a falsely presumed equality.  While the one sex that truly images God, men, are shown to be superior, and thus rightful heads.  It is in the best interest of every man, woman, and child that men be given the patriarchal authority that God ordained for them to have over their wives and children.

Although women are a weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7) not designed to carry the matchless image of God the Father and His Son, it is not an individual woman or man’s relative strengths and weaknesses that determines men’s superiority, but it is the image of God that was categorically bestowed on men, that makes all men superior in earthly rank to women within God’s holy patriarchal kingdom.  A woman can’t become the stronger vessel by steroids or education, those things won’t make her outrank a man who was made in the image of God.  Even if she is physically stronger, and mentally stronger, she is still a woman who, if she professes godliness, should adorn herself with shamefacedness (1 timothy 2:9-10) while reverencing her husband. (Ephesians 5:33)

Feminism teaches that traditional patriarchal marriage as set up by God is a form of slavery where one equal subjects another equal into an unequal relationship where he rules over her.  If you accept men and women to be equals, then marriage automatically becomes unjust and also unworkable, since you can’t have a democracy of two people.  However, if God created man first in His own image, and to be His own glory, and later created Eve for Adam to be his helper and to be Adam’s glory, then it is only fitting that she should submit to her superior, as the Bible explains:  Colossians 3:18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

Marriage is not slavery, just as parenting is not enslaving children.  Because children are admittedly inferior and need parental guidance, it is only fitting that they be taught to submit to their parents’ control.

If men were truly created first, preeminent, and superior to women, and women, who being the last creature created, were the first creature to transgress against God; then patriarchy isn’t enslavement, but instead is the loving gift of our all-wise God.  Through patriarchy, God wants to keep society as righteous as can be expected by governing sinful and silly women with sinful yet more dutiful and dutybound men, who were created to serve God directly, while their wives were vessels created to serve God through serving God’s image, their fathers and then husbands.

Once you understand that females are neither the image nor likeness of the Father or Son, then women no longer have a basis to claim equality with men who are to be reverenced in marriage as the images of Jesus Christ,(God) while the wife images the church.(not God)

Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

So, I exhort you men, use the Word of God to pull down the stronghold of Feminism, by first destroying its foundation, women’s claim to image our masculine God.  If we don’t pull out Feminism’s root the noxious weed of sexual equality will grow right back in churches whereby satanic Feminism was first cultivated into our culture, ultimately destroying our culture.

Some time around 400AD women began to be claimed to also be the likeness of God, so that Mary could become a deity and be worshipped as a substitute for goddess worshippers whom Emperor Constantine had forcibly converted to his new state religion of “Christianity” in Rome.  The protestant reformation a millennium later rolled back the deity of Mary.  But, now we need to roll back the image of the Father and Son from off of women to rest just on us fathers and sons.  Feminism has now grown so wretched that women murder men’s children while still in their own wombs, destroy marriages for no fault, and get to kidnap father’s children by default.  Our society can’t survive much more of this satanic arrogance against God.

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds,  5 casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,  6 and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

No Patriarchy for My Daughter!!!

Dialing up the Femininsm

A commenter, “thedeti”, left a great comment at Σ Frame describing the Feminist life script for women.   Responding to the following question: One question I have at this point is, why are a woman’s solipsistic dreams so much more important than submitting to a fantastic man who loves her? Not even sexual bonding is enough to get her to tune into her God ordained purpose as a woman? WTH??? And no matter how good her life might be, fantasy land will always be “better”.

Elspeth is correct that it is the parents’ fault. It’s also the ambient feminism that everyone swims in. Modern Western culture IS feminism. Everyone and everything is feminist. Even Christian women are feminists who are against abortion.

All women, and I mean ALL women, born after about 1960 are marinated in feminism and are feminists. All women in the US over the age of 25 are feminists, and I don’t care what anyone says to the contrary because it’s not true. EVERY man who has gotten married in the last 40 years married a feminist.

The last reason is the overarching dominant cultural narrative and “life script” that Novaseeker has explicated so well and better than I can. The narrative is basically this:

“Daughter, you can’t ever depend on a man and you can’t ever trust a man. Think about the D’s: Divorce, death, disability. What if he leaves you, cheats on you, dies on you, or becomes a cripple? You need a career so you can stand on your own two feet if you have to. You need college. You need job training. You need to earn your own money. You need to compete on equal footing with men. You are equal to men in every way, you can do anything a man can do. You don’t have to take any crap from a man and you sure as hell don’t have to “submit” to him. Any man you marry will be a completely 50/50 equal partner with you and you MUST insist on that.”

“In the meantime before you get married, it’s not really OK to have sex, but you’re going to anyway, so just make sure that if you do, you do it with men you love or at least like a lot. Or, if you’re a non-Christian, you can have all the sex you want with as many different men as you want and there will still be hot, attractive, resources-rich men waiting for you when you’re done with that.”

The ideal “life script” is:

Education, bachelor’s degree or extensive job training, move to a population center, get job, live alone or with roommates who are doing the same thing you’re doing. Advance in career, get competent or even proficient. Travel to fun and exotic tropical destinations. Have fun. Make some frivolous purchases like $800 Louis Vuitton handbags. Keep working. Probably get master’s degree. Change job if necessary. All your friends and every woman you know around your age is doing this.

During all of the above, you are dating both for fun and in the hopes of meeting a marriageable man. You are having sex with most of those men. Some are false starts. Some are short term, no more than 3-6 months. Some are long term. Again: All your friends and every woman you know around your age is doing this.

Two Sluts

The above 2 paragraphs take her out to at least age 25, and many times to the late 20s. (It is alleged by some that many, most, women meet the man they will marry by age 23, and they then marry in their late 20s because the reported average age from relationship start to marriage is 4.9 years. This doesn’t take into account though that female average age at first marriage is 28 and creeping upwards.)

Phase 2: Meet man who you will marry. Get married in equal partnership marriage. Have one child, at most two. Options to stay home, work part time/flex time, or continue full time. Your husband also works and does significant chores around the house and takes the stress off you, as he’s expected to because you are his equal in every significant way. It’s not your job to do most of the housework and child rearing- you’re to do only half of it, and he’s to do the other half (that you decide he needs to do).

So that’s why a woman’s solipsistic dreams are more important than submitting to a fantastic man who loves her:

1) Her “dreams” (or, her life survival) predominate over marriage and everything else until she’s at least in her early 20s. During the time when she’s most attractive and most able to secure “a fantastic man who loves her”, she is spending that time getting educated and job trained so she can do what mom and dad and everyone else told her – Don’t ever be in a position where you have to depend on a man. Instead of looking for a man to take care of survival, she’s doing it herself and not nearly as well as a man can.

2) She’s entitled to “have fun” before she gets married. Travel, make and spend money. Date (i.e. have sex with) attractive men and maybe one will commit. Dating = sex. Everyone is doing this. Your parents, church and pastors usually know this but look the other way.

3) The way you find a husband is you find attractive men, have sex with them within 3 dates, and then find out if there’s enough compatibility there to keep dating. Then hopefully you get exclusive. Then hopefully, when everything is right, you get married. But EVERYTHING must be in place: His career, her career, sufficient money, a decent place to live, access to transportation and culture. She must also be satisfied she has acquired enough life experience that she is satisfying her YOLO needs and FOMO fears, and she must do this before she agrees to marriage.

4) Submission is almost completely omitted from the narrative. Women are not to submit to men. A woman dating a man is not to take the submissive position. A wife is not to submit to her husband, or if she does, she submits only when she wants to and only when she approves of the husband’s conduct. She has everyone’s permission and approval to approach men and marriage this way – even from her church and her pastors, and certainly from her mother, and almost always from her father (if she has one) Absolutely no one will tell her she is to submit to her husband “in all things, as unto the Lord” – not even her church, not even her pastors. Submission to a man equals dependence on him, and remember – she cannot be in a position where she has to depend on a man.

So how can this paradigm be fixed?

I don't know

previously I gave some advice about keeping an unmarried woman in her father’s house.  But, I really would like your help in coming up with a way to counter this godless Feminist life script.   Some of the underlying assumptions made by those who accept this life script seem to be that:

  1.  An olden day patriarchal lifestyle and marriage is unacceptable for their daughter.
  2.  If I live a strict Bible-directed life, I will miss out on so much I would like to do.
  3.  As long as I’m not the worst girl at church (e.g. the pastor’s daughter) I’m still going to heaven.
  4.  I can be redeemed and a fornicator.
  5.  God must judge me relative to the society all around me.
  6.  Egalitarian/Complementarian marriages work better and are happier than Patriarchal marriages.
  7.  My husband doesn’t deserve my best years, or for my life to focus on him.
  8.  I can chase my Feminist dreams before and after marriage, and if I can, I’ll help my husband too.
  9.  As a woman my goals and dreams are just as important as any man’s.
  10.  My husband should do half of the domestic work, because; “Baby, I’m worth it!”

Should we do something about it?

Thoughts and Prayers

If we only keep the brainwashed young men and women of this Feminist generation in our thoughts and prayers, things will only grow worse as the rabid Feminists charge unopposed against the last few remnants of traditional Christian patriarchy that are still left in our lives.  At this moment what I can see is that we need to change our mindset and the frame of reference of those around us.  Feminism and Hollywood have programmed and brainwashed us to believe that women are equal to men, if not morally superior.  So consequently a wife’s priorities become equal to her husband’s, if not superior.

Many of the underlying assumptions that the Feminist life script is based upon, are rooted in the idea that husbands aren’t any more important than their wives.  Churchians generally believe that now, and that male headship makes little sense, but is commanded only by reason of divine fiat.  So, they try to humor God by calling the man the head, while carrying on like he is only the co-head, or preferably only the vice president of their daughter’s future extension of their own family.  They don’t give their daughters away to belong to their husband’s clan anymore, on the contrary they feel that the husbands are being nabbed for their daughter’s matriarchal dominion.

Basically people lack the faith that God’s original ways are best, that their daughters should prepare for a faith-filled life depending on God and their husband.   They would gladly risk their daughter fornicating and being indoctrinated and radicalized into complete worldliness just to give her a chance to get a degree at a well known school of this world.  They make a deal with the devil whereby they clearly sell out their future son in law’s best interests to try to assure that their daughter tastes fleeting pleasures apart from him while securing her financial insurance against ever becoming fully bound to his circumstances or dependent on him.  They are literally trading off future marital unity interdependence and intimacy for faithless independence and separation preparedness.   We as individuals and as a society need to repent of this foolish faithlessness!

Exit Question: How do we best get people to deprioritize women and their fruitless independence and instead cherish men, marriage, and strong patriarchal families?

Affirmative Action for Baby Makers

Female Job Qualifications

Feminists say that us men all want women barefoot pregnant and in the kitchen.  Well, they’re wrong.  I’m not opposed to footwear.  LOL

I’d like to share with you some concepts that can recalibrate your thinking about women.  The primary concept is that all actions to “advance” women from out of their God given and natural role of wife and mother, are contrary to God and contrary to what is best for society.  

God intends natural unions and divisions among people.

After a failed experiment with communism William Bradford wrote in his Journal of Plymouth Plantation about the communal living:  The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst godly and sober men, may well evince the vanity of that conceit of Plato’s & other ancients, applauded by some of later times;—that the taking away of property, and bringing in community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser than God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed much confusion & discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For the young-men that were most able and fit for labor & service did repine that they should spend their time & strength to work for other men’s wives and children, without any recompense. The strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals & clothes, than he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men to be ranked and equalized in labors, and victuals, clothes, & Etc., with the meaner & younger sort, thought it some indignity & disrespect unto them. And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, & Etc., they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could many husbands well brook it. Upon the point all beginning to have alike, and all to do alike, they thought themselves in the like condition, and one as good as another; and so, if it did not cut off those relations that God hath set amongst men, yet it did at least much diminish and take of the mutual respects that should be preserved amongst them. 

Part of what Governor Bradford was saying was that there are natural distinctions that God makes amongst mankind that need to be kept in place to maintain the mutual respect everybody’s position is due.

Distinctions among people form the basis of what respects they are due.  

1 Peter 3:6 It was thus that Sarah obeyed Abraham [following his guidance and acknowledging his headship over her by] calling him lord (master, leader, authority). And you are now her true daughters if you do right and let nothing terrify you [not giving way to hysterical fears or letting anxieties unnerve you].  7 Likewise ye husbands, dwell with them as men of knowledge, giving honor unto the woman, as unto the weaker vessel, even as they which are heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers be not interrupted.

The apostle Peter also clearly tells us about mutual due respects.  He says that women are weaker vessels, right after speaking of their propensity towards hysterical fears and anxieties, yet women have also been given the grace of life and are due to be honored as wives, even though the husband is lord over her.  The wife is not to be scorned even though she is known to be weaker and unequal in her created being, because even as God made her a weaker creature, yet God Himself has made it so that she shares in the same saving grace that God gives to husbands, and so she should also receive some honor due as a recipient together of that grace of eternal life.  Clearly the Husband is the greater, the lord, and due greater respect, but the point is that neither of them is due contempt, but both are due respect in keeping with God’s order.

What is God’s order?

God created the man(Adam) first, and gave Adam dominion over all the earth.  Then God created Eve secondly, and for Adam, to help him and to be a mate to Adam, and so that he might be fruitful and multiply.  After they both had sinned, God again made it clear that Adam should rule over Eve, who had tempted him into defiling himself, after she had first defiled herself.  The earth was cursed making Adam’s job of providing their “bread” harder.  Adam was to be the breadwinner who provided the sustenance for his family.

Women are defilers.

Revelation 14:4 These are the ones who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These were redeemed from humanity as firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.

So not only was Eve the defiler of the very first man in Genesis, but all the way forward into the future, as recorded in Revelation, women are so defiling of men, that even in heaven, virgin men are honored by God among His holy saints. 

Wives owe their husbands reverence.

When a female former fornicator gives her husband less enthusiastic sex than she gave to others, she is defrauding him of the same respect that she showed to other guys.  She consciously has chosen to disdain the husband that God so mercifully gave to a whore(who by God’s law deserves death) and she has refused to even cultivate her passion for what is her undeserved gift from God to enjoy.  She does this because the love of God is not in her.  If Christ were living in her, she would strive to love her husband more and more as she grew to know him better. 

Ezekiel 16:32 You unfaithful wife! You desire strangers instead of your husband.

The prophet Ezekiel makes it clear that it is unfaithfulness for a wife to desire strangers instead of her own husband.  If Christ were living in her she would cultivate her desire and her passion for her beloved.  If she was having difficulty showing her husband the same respect she paid to others, she would be fasting and praying that God’s Holy Spirit would ignite a fire of passion inside her for her own husband.  Do you blaspheme the Holy Spirit by believing the lie that God’s Holy Spirit is an evil cuckolding spirit living inside of women that causes them to defraud their husbands of the respect that they showed other sexually immoral men?  Do you honestly believe that a woman filled with God’s Holy Spirit will go on sinning her entire life in such great unfaithfulness and not ever be convicted to see to it that she reverence her own husband as commanded in Ephesians 5:33?  

Matthew 25:40 And the King will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”  41 Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”

Wives serving other men too much is unfaithfulness to their own husbands.

For a woman to desire to serve other men more than her own husband, whether through her work or through her sexuality, is unfaithfulness to her vow to be his, forsaking all others.  Women shouldn’t get married if they want to serve some other men rather than their husband, they should stay single if they don’t intend to serve their husband as a keeper of his house, and by their unfaithfulness blaspheme the word of God.  As below the apostle Paul commanded the older women:

Titus 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,  5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

The marital bed is holy and a pleasure that should be enjoyed at all times.

Younger women, like the one shown in the meme above, really should be married and at home serving a husband.  Her young breasts and baby maker, really are her most highly desired job qualifications that no man has, and they are made for a divine purpose that no job can surpass, that brings God glory, for which she was lovingly and wonderfully created, to submit herself to an image of God, and become one flesh with him and bear the offspring of a god.(John 10:34)

Proverbs 5:18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.  19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.  20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

1 Timothy 2:15 But she shall be saved through her child-bearing, if they continue in faith and love and sanctification with sobriety.

Women work out their salvation by fulfilling their God-ordained role.

Getting a young woman trained in the ways of the Lord and married to a godly man and ready for keeping home should be her parents highest priority for her, because that is God’s highest priority for her and His purpose for making women.  Young women should be taught to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.  That is real “Affirmative Action” for young women’s absolutely divine calling.  What this evil world calls “Affirmative Action” for women is actually just defiance against God’s highest calling for women.  I’ll let y’all ponder all the manifold ways the world tries to get young women into their camp.  As their deceitfully “affirming” Feminist signs welcome young women into the workforce, telling them  “Arbeit macht frei”, which means: “Work makes [you] free”.

God hears husbands!

fennec kit

I was recently reminded of 1 Peter 3:7, a verse too often misused by Feminism’s enforcers to help subjugate husbands to their wives.  Often they might say something like, “husbands, if you don’t hear your wife, God won’t hear you”.  But is that what saint Peter actually told us?  Does God really refuse to listen to the prayers of all husbands who are not tuned in to hearken unto the voices of their wives?

1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

The key misunderstanding is that the word “your” in that verse does not refer just to the husband.  But, because of an unfortunately ambiguous English translation, most people will initially read it that way, even though that seemingly puts the verse at odds with the uniform strict patriarchy that God prescribes throughout the rest of the Bible.

The Greek word for “your” (Strong’s 5216) which is pronounced hoo-mone in English, and is written ὑμῶν in Greek, is plural not singular. The husband and wife are to exist in perfect unity with the wife in full subjection to the husband in everything.(Ephesians 5:22-24) The principle is that if, through lack of knowledge, you don’t live in unity as heirs together of the grace of God, then your prayers together will be hindered.

Matthew Henry explained it this way over 300 years ago:
They are heirs together of the grace of life, of all the blessings of this life and another, and therefore should live peaceably and quietly one with another, and, if they do not, their prayers one with another and one for another will be hindered, so that often “you will not pray at all, or, if you do, you will pray with a discomposed ruffled mind, and so without success.”

Churchian female-supremacists naturally want to blame a husband for all of his wife’s sinful behavior and then deceitfully construe the testing and hardship he endures, against him, claiming his prayers go unanswered as confirming evidence of God’s displeasure with his treatment of his wife.  Don’t let woman-worshiping churchians twist this holy verse that states that one must realize that women are in fact weaker vessels yet still should be honored as co-recipients of God’s grace, lest your collective prayers be hindered, into something that turns God into the enforcer for their Feminist false teaching, into a God who won’t listen to any husband until they first hearken unto the voice of their gullible wife.

Genesis 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

The misuse of 1 Peter 3:7 is Satan’s same old plan for getting husbands to follow their easily misled wive’s leading, just like how Adam hearkened to and followed Eve’s leading and got the whole earth cursed by God.  We are to honor the fact that women are by their creation weaker vessels, but that even so they are also heirs together with men of the grace of life, and by handling them according to knowledge, we husbands will not foolishly antagonize our weaker halves and so hinder our united prayers together with them.

Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.  14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

Flaming Cowards

30+ ring

Revelation 21:8  But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.

At this point of reflection at both the end and beginning of a decade, we should remember that those men and women who are too cowardly to stand up against the great whore’s continual inversion of God’s established patriarchy, need to repent and turn from their cowardice before they are damned to hell for it.

Mark 8:34  And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.  35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.  36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?  37 For what can a man give in return for his soul?  38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Women’s Work – Easy enough for a woman to do!

Women's Work

So, today, I, a man, singlehandedly rustled up a tasty Thanksgiving dinner, cleaned and managed the house, and kept two tween-age boys happy and helping.  While also managing to sleep in late, enjoy my coffee ritual, have some “me time”, and write this post mocking overentitled women, and I still have a lot of day left to enjoy with my boys.   I don’t feel oppressed by the patriarchy, and, in fact, I wish I could do it all over again tomorrow, except not eat so much.   I guess I fail to understand what would make this all so unbearable?

Perhaps my powerful hands and perfect “falling off the bone” cooking, made deboning the turkey easier, and perhaps my steady disposition meant I didn’t spend any part of my day wallowing in a bad mood, but really, this was a day off of work for me, and it truly felt like a wonderful vacation just puttering about the house doing all the week’s cleaning and preparing a small feast.    LOL   Women!

Getting the Word Out

 

Repeal the19th AmendmentHow to tell others about God’s loving plan of patriarchy?

Where I work I usually get a couple emails weekly about what the company is doing to empower women, or increase diversity.  Supposedly diversity of ideas is a good thing, and apparently you get it by hiring and promoting people who don’t look like myself.   LOL   However, even though my ideas are quite outside the mainstream, instead of being celebrated for such diversity of thought, I know I might be fired for sharing my diverse beliefs with some of the “diverse” people at work.  Although I do continually push the envelope at work, sharing more about Godly Sexism than anybody else I know there.

I bought the shirt, shown above, from Amazon and wore it yesterday.(not to work)  My boys were the first to ask me what the 19th amendment was.  And It gave me the chance to share with them  that the 19th amendment allowed women to vote in the USA.

Later I got to briefly share the calamity of women voting with a stocker at Walmart who asked me what the 19th amendment was.  He didn’t really say anything in return.  I assume he had been coached not to speak of his personal politics with customers.  But, his facial expression looked shocked, like he’d just had his pussy grabbed.

Our country has made a grave mistake by letting women “help” rule us.  And as expected, ideological politics descended from written platforms and whole speeches printed in newspapers, into glamour photos and quotable quips from the candidates.  Today we have memes and soundbites, but the effect is the same.  Both parties left off deep discussion of the candidates stances and ideas and effectively turned elections into beauty contests judged by flighty “undecided” women.

Giving women the vote also meant the inevitable passage of “women’s issues”, e.g. Abortion on demand,(babies are drawn & quartered in their mother’s wombs) No-Fault Divorce,(family men are absolutely ruined for No-Fault of their own) the Sexual Harassment campaign,(that criminalizes even the mildest pursuit and advances by unwelcomed men) Equal pay for twice the drama, and every imaginable perversion of virtue and justice along with a whole raft of freebies and carveouts designed to provide for women who don’t care to treat any man respectably enough to earn that provision from him.  So, women voting has brought a murderous reign of family devastation upon our nation and world, and I don’t see what we’ve gained by making women so entitled.

If we feel men were created by God to be the leaders, and run society in accordance with God’s will, then we need to be able to openly share those Godly ideas, before we can ever expect we’ll get others to agree with them and adopt them.

Red-Pill Religion?

Bnonn's Baby

Lately there has been some discussion of whether the “Red Pill” is Christian or not.   I think it is a fool’s debate, but here goes, I’ll wade in against the foolish.  Recently I read two somewhat opposing articles regarding this.  First I’ll deal with the foolish one: Bnonn throws the baby out.  Fence-riding Bnonn, at the Purple-Pill “It’s Good To Be A Man” takes a break from fighting his enemy ‘Blue-Pill feminist Status quo’ to take a swipe at his other enemy, ‘Red-Pill patriarchal wisdom’.  Bnonn begins by saying: “Our conviction is that, while the red pill shares certain commonalities with biblical Christianity, and often sees the nature of things more clearly than mainstream evangelicalism, it is actually a separate religion in its own right.”  So, Bnonn recognizes that there are some Biblical principles in the red pill, and that this truth leads Red-Pilled people to seeing the nature of things with greater clarity, but he then proceeds to ‘point and shriek’, branding this truth, this source of greater clarity, as a false religion, outlawing seeking this truth and wisdom from Christianity.  Now I’ll spare you the bulk of his bnonnsense, as the author is reduced to painting the red pill with a very broad brush, citing various individual foibles and some red-piller’s lack of Christian morals, and such,  as reason to advise his readers to shriek and run from any truth or wisdom that might be inherent in the Red-Pill movement, and to let men like himself do your thinking, and all consideration of it, for you.  As Bnonn so often does, his articles generally go into lengthy drawn out contortions to twist some unrelated tidbits into seemingly supporting his contentions, and apparently to either impress or baffle his readers  he opportunistically throws in the biggest and most arcane words that he knows, but in this article mainly he foolishly paints with an overly broad brush and throws the good out with the bad.  Bnonn concludes with: “Hence, we are not red pill Christians, and actively warn against the very idea of such a thing. We are Christians who have benefited from the observations of red pill thinkers about God’s creation, and are striving to integrate that knowledge into a positive biblical theology of masculinity, femininity, and how men and women are to work together to extend the dominion of the house of God.”

As you can see, Bnonn cleverly shifts dominion from individual men under the headship of Christ,(1 Corinthians 11:3) to the church, “the house of God”, of which he is a thought leader.  Bnonn’s preface and conclusion, given above, defines his ilk as Purple-Pill, and attempts to scare his readers off from becoming any more Red-Pilled than Bnonn himself.    He claims to be riding the fence at just the perfect balance point.  So as always, your ideas and discussion are not permitted there, just your donations, so they can afford to continue doing all your thinking for you, and in exchange they’ll limit your dominion a bit less than a more Feminist church.

Job 12:2 Truly ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you!

Now on to the Good.

Over at Biblical Gender Roles, the host asks: Is Red Pill Biblical?

As you know, I myself, have been teaching that men are exclusively in the image and glory of God,(1 Corinthians 11:7) created preeminent, to be delegated divine dominion over women and all of creation, with the command to rule them well.  I have stated that we men have been deceived into trading our birthright ~ blessed Patriarchy, for a mess of dysfunctional Feminism.  This Bible based belief also fits well with the Red Pill.

The host quotes popular secular Red Pill Blogger, Rollo Tomassi as saying: The authority men used, to claim innate legitimacy [from] in the past, is now only legitimate when a woman wields it.  Men need to retake this authority and own it as is their birthright once again.”

I won’t dissect the Biblical Gender Roles article here, since it is worth reading for yourself.  I will however welcome all your discussion of it here.  I personally have found it difficult to get my comments to appear at BGR, and Bnonn’s article does not allow any comments at all.  Feel free to share your thoughts about whether the Red Pill movement contains wisdom and truth that our Feminist churches have been misled to currently try to deny, or any other thoughts.

Sharkly – Heresiarch or Church Reformer?

Martin Luther the Reformer

Martin Luther is remembered annually on Reformation day, October 31, 1517, for when he began the Protestant Reformation by nailing his 95 Theses, protesting the sale of indulgences, to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany.  His ensuing one man public battle with the Catholic Church was made possible by the arrival of printing presses, whose owners printed, and widely sold to the public, copies of Luther’s criticisms and condemnations of the wayward church.  By the time the papacy responded to Luther’s writings in June 1520 offering Luther 60 days to recant or be excommunicated, Luther, a prolific and compelling writer, had not only publicly denounced the authority of the pope, but had declared him an antichrist.

Heresiarch definition: Arch-Heretic – an originator or chief advocate of a heresy.

I am Sharkly, and as you may know, I consider it foundational to our Christian faith that we understand who God is, and who we are.  I believe God is masculine or male, a Father, Son, and their masculine Spirit, and that men alone are earthly likenesses or images of God.  I believe we are told of this repeatedly in the Bible.  I believe the misunderstanding of God and humankind has led Christendom and the world back into the serpent’s trap of once again deifying women and catering to Eve’s desires rather than the will of our Creator, thereby we worship a creature rather than our Creator.  We as a society make ongoing human child sacrifices, through abortion, at the altar of idolatrous Feminism.  In just our generation we have shed more innocent blood, tearing more babies to bits, than all who died from all the wars of history combined.  The Heavenly Father in great anger will hold our generation to account for this unprecedented sacrifice of innocent babies at the satanic altar of female supremacy.  We must repent and return to the ways set up by our loving Father!

I first realized that men alone were in the image of God by reading Genesis 1:26-27

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image.
In the image of God created he him.
Male and female created he them.

It became apparent to me after reading this that God clearly mentioned man/him(Adam in Hebrew) being made/created in God’s image or likeness, four times right in a row, while then contrastingly telling us that male & Female(them) were only just created by God, with conspicuously no mention of it being done in God’s image.  God clearly went out of His way to solidify that Adam was made in His image, but never is Eve or womankind said to be in God’s image.  So I searched the scriptures for the image of God, and every single place it is mentioned it is assigned to the masculine Adam/men/Jesus.(in non-neutered Bibles)  The Apostle Paul made it quite clear that men alone are the image of God in 1 Corinthians 11:7

For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

No part of God Himself needs to be exhibited through the feminine, because all of God is masculine in Himself and in His representation.  Jesus Christ did not need a female counterpart to exhibit the full image of God according to Colossians 2:9 (Colossians 1:19 states similar)

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

(ESV) 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

There is no exclusively female aspect to the image of God.  The whole of the image of God was shown in Jesus Christ, a man come in the flesh, the Son of God.

I have also come to discover that this is what the early church taught and unanimously believed.  Saint Augustine said:  But we must notice how that which the apostle says, that not the woman but the man is the image of God, is not contrary to that which is written in Genesis, “God created man: in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them: and He blessed them.” For this text says that human nature itself, which is complete in both sexes, was made in the image of God; and it does not separate the woman from the image of God which it signifies. For after saying that God made man in the image of God, “He created him,” it says, “male and female:” or at any rate, punctuating the words otherwise, “male and female created He them.” How then did the apostle tell us that the man is the image of God, and therefore he is forbidden to cover his head; but that the woman is not so, and therefore is commanded to cover hers? Unless, forsooth, according to that which I have said already, when I was treating of the nature of the human mind, that the woman together with her own husband is the image of God, so that that whole substance may be one image; but when she is referred separately to her quality of help-meet, which regards the woman herself alone, then she is not the image of God; but as regards the man alone, he is the image of God as fully and completely as when the woman too is joined with him in one.

Ambrosiaster says:  Paul says that the honor and dignity of a man makes it wrong for him to cover his head, because the image of God should not be hidden. Indeed, it ought not to be hidden, for the glory of God is seen in the man. … A woman therefore ought to cover her head, because she is not the likeness of God but is under subjection.

Epistle of “Mathetes” to Diognetus 10:2a  For God loved men (… whom He created after His own image …) for whose sake He made the world, to whom He subjected all things that are in the earth … [This includes women, who are repeatedly told to be in subjection to their fathers and then husbands]

In past posts I have shared other quotes from early church fathers sharing the unanimous belief of the apostolic and patristic church that only men are the express images of God and designated as representatives of God, here living on earth.  These beliefs were unchanged until the latter portion of the fourth century when the church was taken over and instituted as the state religion of the Roman Empire by Emperor Constantine.  All sorts of politics, greed, and secular rot got syncretized into the church as it became a secular world power.  Notably, Mary was deified, (to appease forcibly converted goddess worshippers) and in the process of doing so, women had to be falsely claimed to be images of God as well as men, for Mary to be able to be deified.  How could Mary be claimed to be equal with Jesus Christ if she wasn’t even in the image of deity?  Mary went from being a minor figure, less mentioned in the Bible than some other women, to then being claimed to be co-redemptrix with Christ, who is the central hero of the Bible.  Today the false belief in women being made in the image of God has been brought to its logical conclusion of making women fully equal to men, just as Mary was blasphemously made equal with Christ.  And today God’s institution of marriage is being debased, and families destroyed, since marriages won’t operate properly because a democracy of two equals can’t resolve conflict and attain the solidarity of a patriarchal family that works together to achieve one man’s ambition, as God intended.  Just as the Protestant reformation after over a millennium rolled back the false divinity of Mary, returning all the reverence due solely to Jesus Christ as all the fullness of the Godhead in human flesh, so also, the image of God, the birthright of men, is a reverence, long stolen, that urgently needs to be returned solely to men.

Here is some Early church advice on telling heretics from true teachers:

Didache (Teaching of the Twelve Apostles) Chapter 11. Concerning Teachers, Apostles, and Prophets.  11:1 Whosoever therefore shall come and teach you all these things that have been said before, receive him; 2 But if the teacher himself be perverted and teach another doctrine to destroy these things, do not listen to him. But if he teaches so as to increase righteousness and the knowledge of the Lord, receive him as the Lord.

So, who is teaching the doctrine that was delivered to the apostolic church?  Based upon the words of the Apostle Paul, and upon the remaining writings of many of the earliest church Fathers, that would be those of us who teach that women by themselves are not the image of God, but that women and men portray Jesus Christ(who is God) and his bride the true church that is eventually to become one with the Lord.

Which doctrine fits best with the rest of scripture, and which doctrine destroys other scriptural doctrines?  The belief that both sexes represent the image of the Most High God, and are thus equal in their rank and dignity, fights against so many other teachings of the Bible:

  1. Ephesians 5 teaches us that husbands image Jesus Christ, while wives image the church.  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  2. Women are told to be in subjection.(1Peter 3:1-2)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  3. Men alone are allowed to represent God and teach His word to both men and women.(1 Timothy 2:12)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  4. Women are not to usurp authority over men. (1 Timothy 2:12)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  5. Women are to reverence their husbands (Ephesians 5:33)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  6. Women are to cover their heads in prayer, but men should not.(1 Corinthians 11:3-9)  So the sexes are clearly not equal when coming before God.
  7. Man was created preeminently in God’s image, while woman was secondly created from man’s flesh and bone.(Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:18-24)  So the sexes are clearly not equal in their creation.
  8. The husband is to be the head,(1 Corinthians 11:3) and the wife the helper.(Genesis 2:18)  So the sexes are clearly not equal in rank.
  9. Women are unavoidably ceremonially unclean during menstruation,(Leviticus 15:19-27, Leviticus 18:19, Ezekiel 18:5-6, Ezekiel 36:17) So the sexes are clearly not equal.  Nor does that periodic uncleanness fit the image of God.
  10. Women are natural defilers. (Revelation 14:4)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  11. We are clearly told that women are the “weaker vessel”.(1 Peter 3:7)  So the sexes are clearly not equal.
  12. We are told specifically that women are to be shamefaced. (1 Timothy 2:9)  So the sexes are clearly not of equal glory and status.

Those are just a dozen of the many other doctrines that are damaged by having women equally in the image of the Most High God, that first popped into my head.  Feel free to offer more in the comments section.

Some women might falsely claim that giving husband’s dominion, as unto the Lord, will lead to cruelty and abuses, well here is how it should work as described by the apostolic church:

Epistle of “Mathetes” to Diognetus from Chapter 10How will you love Him who has first so loved you? And if you love Him, you will be an imitator of His kindness. And do not wonder that a man may become an imitator of God. He can, if he is willing. For it is not by ruling over his neighbors, or by seeking to hold the supremacy over those that are weaker, or by being rich, and showing violence towards those that are inferior, that happiness is found; nor can any one by these things become an imitator of God. But these things do not at all constitute His majesty. On the contrary he who takes upon himself the burden of his neighbor; he who, in whatsoever respect he may be superior, is ready to benefit another who is deficient; he who, whatsoever things he has received from God, by distributing these to the needy, becomes a god to those who receive [his benefits]: he is an imitator of God.

So as you can see, being the image of God places greater duty upon the man, to look out for his inferior, including the call to be ready to lay his life down for his bride, like Christ(God) did for His bride the church.  Truly understanding and practicing God’s order for the family will lead to deeper love and harmony than the lie of having two supposed equals constantly contending with each other for control.

So in conclusion, I want to bring the church back to its original teaching on womankind, where “she is not the likeness of God but is under subjection.”  This fits far better with the rest of the Bible’s doctrines,  and it destroys the basis for evil Feminism that has unleashed so much death and destruction against our own children.  God’s plan is based upon His love, and will promote greater harmony between the sexes again, when properly followed.  Join me in returning back to God’s simple truth.

The Servant-Leadership Scam

Creflo Dollar“Minister” Creflo Dollar exiting his previous business jet.

Definition (verb form) ~ Minister:

  • attend to the wants and needs of others
  • to give help to or care for people
  • to give aid or service, e.g. minister to the sick
  • Etymology: from Latin minister, Meaning: servant

The prosperity preacher Creflo Dollar is notorious for asking his followers to buy him a top-of-the-line 65 million dollar business jet, after his jet pictured above was damaged.  You can read about more of his profligate antics at this, Not Safe For Work (NSFW) link: Daily Mail Online ~ Creflo Dollar

In another widely publicized story Dollar was once booked into jail for beating his 15 year old daughter in order to keep the indiscretionate young lady from going out partying.  As one commenter amusingly put it: “It sounds like Dollar was trying to knock some cents into the girl.”

Where does the always misapplied concept of Servant-Leadership come from?

Mark 10:41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.  42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.  43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:  44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

Jesus was speaking to his twelve disciples, who were to become the first leaders of his “bride” the church.  Christ is the Head or Husband of the church, but while the Bridegroom is away, prior to His marriage feast, He has entrusted His bride to the care and ministry of various men.  These men are not ordained to be interloping heads over Christ’s bride, but to be servants of Christ’s bride on Christ’s behalf.

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.  24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Clearly Christ is the true Head of the church.   Husbands are the image of Christ, and are not to be without lordship in their own homes, while the leaders of the church are not its head, because Christ is the only head of the church.  Ministers are to be the servants of the other men of the church, out of love for the brotherhood of faithful men.  It is absolutely wrong of church misleaders, those greedy and power hungry charlatans, to forcibly foist their commanded servitude off onto husbands because that clearly reverses God’s word in multiple places, and husband’s need their lordship or families fall apart when wives are not obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. (Titus 2:5)  So who do the men of the church report to?

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

The men of Christ’s church report directly to Christ, who is returning not to serve them again for another three years, but to rule with a rod of iron as omnipotent Lord for a thousand years.  We would do well to notice that Jesus’ earthly ministry will be less than a third of a percent of the time He spends ruling over us here on earth.  Although Christ came to serve and sacrifice and woo us to himself, as Christ cried out on the cross, “It is Finished!”  He quickly commissioned His church leaders and then ascended into glory.  His sacrificial work is done!

So how do churchmen relate to each other within the church since none is the head and ruler, but Christ?

Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

So as we have seen from Ephesians 5 Christ and husbands are to be submitted to in everything.  So is Christ not now our own personal servant?  Our SERVANT-leader?

Revelation 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him:

What!  Servants serving!  That’s crazy talk!  Next you will say that men’s helpers should be helping men, instead of demanding men serve them via misappropriating “servant leadership”. /S

Well, what does Dollar say?

And now we’ll look at this word “Ruleth” because leadership, “Obey them that have the rule over you,” it must be servant type of leadership. It’s the servant leader that God wants to put in the lives of people. It’s the servant leader. … Your house needs leadership. Your children need leadership. But I’m learning that my leadership has increased because I understand that real leadership is serving. When I serve my wife, that’s leadership.

Dollar then goes on to mock men who actually want to rule their families, as God commands, as being insecure control-freaks.

The heart of the matter.

So Creflo Dollar serves his poor congregation from his mansion, his Rolls Royce, his Bentley, his business jet,(Apparently you need a lot of exquisite transportation to get to your needy neighbors these days.) while browbeating husbands into the servitude that God intended for church ministers like himself, and impugning husband’s motives for just wanting enough influence to keep their own daughters from going partying without getting themselves booked into jail like Dollar.  I think we can all see that this clown is a hypocrite, and that the people who give money to his prosperity “gospel” gimmickry are duped by their own greedy desire to get rich like their idol, Mr. Dollar.

But!  You say: Surely my modest-income minister who preaches that husband’s should be servant-leaders is not as bad as crazy Creflo, right?

Wrong!  He is just as worthless a false teacher, and he sucks at it too, because Creflo is getting all the perks while your fool “minister” serves Satan for next to nothing because his skills don’t get him the higher pay scale of a sharp con like Dollar.  These false teachers who pervert God’s word and destroy God’s patriarchal design for families, their portion is entirely in this life.  If they don’t get for themselves the nice things in this life, they’re both evil and lazy.
