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.

Who’s Oppressing Women?

wage slave

On today’s episode of BattleTwats the Siren of Socialism takes on Feminazi Fever!

The Socialist Bot quickly hits the spinning flail of Feminism with a delegitimizing blow but then loses one of her own intellectual wheels and winds up spun out and going in similar circles to that of her opponent, the spinning Feminist wage-slave.  The feral Feminist lazily spinning all female “oppression” as originating from patriarchy, and the silly Socialist crazily spinning all female “oppression” as originating from Capitalism.

Today I happened across some old Socialist theory on achieving a classless utopia by Lindsey German: Theories_of_Patriarchy

Lenin’s little Lindsey starts off by showing the absurdity of the settled Feminist conspiracy theory that there is a united army of patriarchal penis possessors all  together responsible for orchestrating every perceived oppression of women.  According to Lindsey, Feminists believe: the “eternal truth” that “patriarchy” in one form or another is the cause of women’s oppression.  Lindsey then reeducates us that, Capitalism done it!

Rather than saying that individual men oppressed women, most feminists saw that oppression of women came from the underlying bias of a patriarchal society.

Linsey asks, if patriarchy is indeed something by which all men oppress all women, how can it ever be overcome by women and men acting together?   I want to argue something completely different. I want to reject the concept of patriarchy as at best a muddled term simply meaning women’s oppression (in which case it cannot explain this oppression), and at worst a completely idealist notion which has no basis in material reality. I want to show that it is not men who “benefit” from the oppression of women but capital. I want to look at the way in which the family has changed, and how as it has changed women’s conception of themselves has also changed. Hopefully that will demonstrate that women’s continued oppression is not the result of male conspiracy (or an alliance between male workers and the capitalist class), but of the continuation of class society in every part of the world. It follows that I shall argue the “socialist” countries have no more in common with socialism than they have with women’s liberation.

Apparently all of the Socialism failing all around us is not really Socialism at all!  Socialism was to be a classless society, and male  and female are classes that did not get sufficiently erased by those lame wannabe Socialist despots and their half-assed purges and half-empty killing fields.  Lindsey want’s to do Socialism right even if they have to kill or neuter us all to achieve her total desired classlessness.   If I recall correctly Jordan Peterson has observed that there is no end to the classes you can break society down into, and every class can always claim some grievance.  There is no satisfying these perpetual grievance mongering dividers and subdividers of the people.

Ultimately the revolution was lost through the failure of the working class in the advanced capitalist countries to follow the Russian lead. That in its turn led to severe setbacks to the position of women. But in the early years they saw the glimmers of opportunity of equal work, socialized housework and a much freer sexuality which was made possible by the revolutionary overthrow of the old society.

Lindsey wants to overthrow all current societies to make way for her Socialist religion, where all children are forcibly raised entirely by the state, because women are oppressed by being part of a family and most oppressed by child bearing and rearing, because it’s career suicide.

The great “parasite” on women’s domestic labor is the child.

Engels and the early Marxists considered that the proletarian family (unlike the bourgeois family) would disappear since it was not based on property. It clearly has not. Since I do not believe that this is because of patriarchy, I want to look at precisely what does keep the family going.

Yet the family remains a stifling, stultifying place where attitudes and roles are taught and learned, where prejudices and values are transmitted through the generations.

And so women are left with the responsibility for childbirth and childcare. This above explains why the family and women’s oppression continue. Women’s roles as mothers and child rearers structure their whole lives.

At every stage in its development the system has had to establish structures that bind those that it exploits to it.  The family is integrated into a complex network of such structures. These take advantage of the way housewives, isolated in the home and cut off from the wider collectivities that form around industrial production, are more susceptible to unchanging ideas about ‘one’s place in society’; dependent upon their husbands for a livelihood they can be persuaded that any sort of social change is a threat to their family and their security. Or, again, these structures rely on the way the male worker, having to worry about the security of his wife and children as well as himself personally, is likely to think twice before getting involved in a strike, occupation or insurrection. The slogan of ‘defense of the family’ becomes a slogan for mobilizing working people in defense of the status quo.

Apparently Lindsey believes in atheistic Socialism inspired economic forces directing humankind,  and so God didn’t design the traditional Patriarchal family, it must have been invented, as her ilk teach, by people in the middle east about 2,000 B.C. due to a change in economic forces.  Lindsey assumes that prior to that was a matriarchal utopia.  LOL   Apparently Lindsey(circa 1981) believed women should effect societal change through things like a collective sex strike.  LOL Alyssa Milano’s recent sex strike didn’t work too well.  How do you escalate things when that fails?  A collective rape accusation against all men?

Anyhow Lindsey seems to believe that having children and raising them is the biggest drag on women and it must be stopped.  Women and men must both alike have no consequences or responsibilities whatsoever after having sex.  Few children should be born, and all children must be raised entirely by the state.  Since having a child will torpedo a woman’s career, I believe she would favor as few select women as possible acting as career babymakers, artificially inseminated with the best semen for the best planned future of the collective state, if in fact she even believes in the favorability of the continued existence of the human race.

Lindsey’s utopia is somehow genderless, marriageless, familyless, sexless except for unaffiliated female-initiated recreational sex, and every remaining problem will then stem from the last remaining vestiges of Capitalism and improperly reeducated malefactors who still have the human ambition to be unique or to belong to a select group.(like a family)

So, I can see Lindsey German has a slightly different alternative to Feminism, the only problem is, it is even worse, and we’d have to kill billions of “Capitalists”, and we still wouldn’t get anything but life in an inescapable globalized shithole nation, filled with apathy, addiction, and despair.

I say society should quit harkening to all these batshit-crazy women and start living Biblically.  Women won’t be happy again until collectively they’re properly repressed.

An Epiphany of Male Superiority

Vagina Voice

The epiphany:

A few days ago my long-divorcing wife and I had a thought provoking verbal exchange.   Upon our first meet-up that day I reminded her that she was headed to hell, and that she needed to repent, as any good spiritual leader would.   Later that evening when we met-up again, she went off on one of her tirades.  Among her first loud charges was the accusation that I think women are inferior.    LOL  She hollered it like she was charging me with arrogant blasphemy.  She continued to verbally lambaste me and got way louder as she ran off, so that I really didn’t get a chance to respond.  She likes to get the last word that way – she screams some charge against my character and then slams the door, usually.   She is a master of shutting down discussion, and always has to get the last word.   Anyhow…

Once upon a blue-pilled time, I might have interjected, “that’s not true”, or tried to show that my words and actions were necessary and reasonable, and not male chauvinistic.  But as she was ranting on, and I was thinking about how I might respond if I ever was able to get a word in, I realized; she’s right.  I do now think women are inferior to men.  And not just because of her accompanying show of spoiled behavior.  LOL   I think God made the woman as a lesser vessel, not in the image of God, with the mission to help and reverence her man, when she is behaving well, and to test men’s faithfulness to God when she misbehaves.

It really was a blissful enlightenment, to acknowledge to myself, that I do firmly know that women are currently categorically inferior by way of creation and divinely assigned rank to all of us menfolk, and that I needed to just come out and own it more thankfully publicly, that I, as a man, was made for preeminence, as an image, or representative figure, of God, and bestowed with some portion of His divine glory.

I no longer need to be on the defensive, and prove I believe in equality.  I can respond to the charge of thinking women are inferior, by going on the offensive and declaring, I know I am superior, a great gift was bestowed on me by God, who fearfully and wonderfully made me a glorious likeness of Himself, to rule over women in His divine stead.   And you, woman, by your insolence and your ignorance of your own rank and place, you prove that your inherent inferiority is well merited by how unworthily you even still conduct yourself, by putting on airs in the presence of your superiors, when you should rightly be showing humility and genuflection.

If it had been the husbands asked to be subject to their wives by God , the husbands wouldn’t fail so incompetently to be of excellent service.

No, the husband is the rightful head, because he is the most noble aspect of humankind, and best fit to command women and children with his discernment.  All children should honor their parents.  Every husband should be honored as the God ordained and inherently superior shepherd of his own household, that the gospel of Jesus Christ may be exalted.  So also should every man honor Jesus Christ as his Lord, thereby directing all human honor and allegiance rightfully upward, ascending ultimately to the glory of the Supreme Father.   Amen!

Realizing the divinely ordained dominion of men

Feminist Tears

We are entering the next phase in public consciousness. (Opposition to being Red-Pilled)

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” ~Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” ~Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

Christian Manosphere maven, Dalrock, posted: The Atlantic blames the Manosphere for mass shootings. , he cites: a largely incoherent article blaming the manosphere for mass shootings.

Feminists are now demanding that men oppose the Manosphere.

Feminists and their fellow female-supremacist enablers are turning a corner.  While they once smugly ignored the Manosphere/Androsphere/Intellectual Dark Web, they eventually acknowledged its penetrating presence by switching to ridiculing it.  August 7th, 2019, the fembots have finally decided to fight us in the public square.

Fembot AttackShe’s got her little gun turrets aimed at you, brother.

I noticed that the author, Helen Lewis, was careful not to specifically mention any operating Manosphere sites, so that her readers could not go there in search of the truth, but instead she set up her own woman-hating, violence prone, straw-man to shoot at.

Our friend Jack keeps a fine list of Manosphere sites on his sidebar at Σ Frame.

Helen whines; “Women’s sexual and reproductive freedom are seen as threats to civilization itself.”   Apparently most Feminists are not yet willing to contemplate the reality that a nation of self-serving whores is not as stable as a nation of upright people with mothers who are trained from their youth to be dedicated to their husbands and children.  Then Helen whines that anti-Feminist videos are getting too many views on YouTube.  Helen scolds that there are bad men out there who make generalized statements about women, and don’t accept dogmas like man-made climate change.  Poor Helen, she might faint if she knew my sons and I leave our toilet seats up.

Helen quotes Ashley Mattheis who opines that the secular Manosphere thinks men are superior because of innate biological advantages, whereas the religious Manosphere believes men’s superiority is divinely ordained.  Amen!

Helen does acknowledge that Feminist overuse of the misandrist phrase “Toxic Masculinity” has backfired by making their latent misandry obvious to men.  And finally Helen implies that men are crazy for taking steps to protect themselves from now rampant false sexual-harassment and rape charges.

LOL

If those are their best arguments against men who aren’t ashamed to be men, then Feminisms’ eventual loss of control over societies sexual narrative may come quicker than we have anticipated.  Like the bursting of a generational dam, the baby boomers and their failed Feminist experiment might quickly be washed away by younger generations who don’t want to repeat their parents’ folly, but want to try something different.

What Men Want

Red Hot Riding Hood

Our secret is out!

Women have broken the code!

Apparently some diligent sleuthing women have scoured ancient literature and long forgotten lore and discovered a long lost secret method to winning a man’s heart.  Fortunately for us men, they are still a bit mystified and wary of the concept and have, so far, only dared each other to dabble with it.

These Indiana Jones-ettes apparently uncovered the secret in a two millennium old book by old Saint Peter, of Bible fame.  This secret method is so effective it can make a believer out of the most disobedient husband, and so sneaky that he can be won without a word.

The two millennium old forgotten spell:

The secret was found in the first sentence of the third chapter of Saint Peter’s First book:

“In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.”

How to do it.

It’s so simple.  Basically women decide to actually keep some critical parts of their own marriage vows!  Just: “To love, honor, and obey” & “forsaking all others”.  So, Saint Peter claims husbands’ hearts can be won, and husbands can be transformed into loving God-following men if their wives just hush their mouths, quit being sluts, and honor and obey their husbands like they vowed to. (and like the wives may have initially done to get a husband to marry them)

How does it work; miracle, magic, sorcery, voodoo?

Here is where the women are mystified: apparently most now think this is a divine rite that has been imbued with supernatural power.  However they all suspect their own husbands are likely immune to this voodoo, so most won’t bother to try it.

I however believe that if wives actually just gave their husbands this part of what wives led them to believe they would be getting when they married them, the husbands would be so awestruck that they would seek to thank and praise the wife’s God and find out how they too could get in on her God’s extended plan for them as a couple.  Basically, if wives would just quietly quit defrauding their husbands of what they’d already vowed to them, their husbands would naturally be overcome with “divine” love.  I’m not even sure if there is much magic to it, so much as just a normal and natural reaction to being shown divine love as intended by a woman who was designed for a man, to be his reverent helper and faithful mate.  When women truly follow God, so usually will their husbands.  Just like the history of Adam and Eve.  And when the woman leaves God’s ways, so often, her husband leaves God’s ways also.

So, don’t worry men!  Our secret will baffle most all women.

Few women will deduce what is mostly just godly ’cause & effect’.

Are You Covered?

Veiled Humility

1 Corinthians 11:1-16

1 Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. 3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. 4 Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. 5 But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head is shaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, let her also have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head. 7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; 9 for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as the woman originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things originate from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? For her hair is given to her for a covering. 16 But if one is inclined to be contentious, we have no other practice, nor have the churches of God.

What worldly sin has the “church” of this age not joined into?

Why did our parent’s “Christianity” fail to slow our culture’s decline?

True Christianity did not fail.  We as a generation of people have just failed to follow God.  The reason, that every day our perpetually losing church leaders are in retreat against the evil advance of our godless culture, is because they’re not actually fighting for God.  The power of God is not on their side.  They preach for money and to build their earthly kingdoms.  They will not preach what is not acceptable to their congregation from God’s word.

God says:  Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

God asks women to pray with their heads covered.  Do they?  Why not?  Why are church leaders not demanding that over half of their congregation obey God in that way?  Because they worship Feminism above God.  Feminism is a supremacist ideology.  Our loving God set up Patriarchy for all humanity, especially for His own people who claim to follow Him.  Abandoning God’s design for the family out of rebellion towards God and adopting the female supremacist ideology of Feminism, has destroyed families and led to a divorce epidemic and loosed all kinds of evil and degraded society.  The Church traditionally was the force for God in this world, but the churches we now have are fully corrupted and in open rebellion to God.  Husbands are told from pulpits to become servants to their wives by hirelings who instead of ministering God’s word, administer still more female supremacism.  Church discipline as prescribed in the Bible, is now just a thing of the past.  Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.  Every man or woman does as they please.  With the least accountability placed on women.   Women, I ask you today to show humility.  Fear God and boldly show your submission to God instead of our self-destructing Feminist culture.  Show that you want to obey God by getting and wearing a head covering when you pray and worship God.  The head covering is a symbol of being covered and under man’s authority whether it is your earthly father’s or husband’s authority, or whether you have no man but Christ Jesus, you honor God and them by having a symbol of submission placed over your head.

What should this be?  How should it look?  When should you be wearing it?  The Bible does not specify what should be used to cover the head, but it is clear that it is a symbol that is in addition to your own hair which should not be shaved short, for that is a shame.  But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her.  Whether you and the man who is your authority choose a veil, a kerchief, a bonnet, or a hat, or some other type of head covering for yourself, the important part is that you wear it for the right reason.  And you should select one in keeping with that reason.  Wearing the veil is an act of obedience to God’s command, and an outward symbol of subjection to your earthly head, a man, whether a father, a husband, or Jesus.  The symbol itself does not have any power of its own to change you, but it is a symbol of the change that has already taken place within, that causes you to unashamedly choose holy obedience to God.

When did Feminism Start?

 

Strangling a Feminist

Commenter ‘Ace’ recently commented: “This is an attitude from the 1700s, so well before feminism took hold.”

Upon reading that I knew I wanted to respond with a post, but I had to go to work and I am now finally able to quickly address this.  However, in the intervening time, commenter ‘ikr’ gave the following reply: “To borrow recently-coined terminology, you further commit a strawwoman argument in arguing feminism, when the issue is gynocentrism. It was known as chivalry before that. The terms belong to eras, but the concept is the same: woman as the central figure in the concern of man.”

Commenter ‘ikr’ largely stole my thunder, by getting my main point across in a nutshell, but I’ll make the argument that “Feminism” goes all the way back to Eve, and that coveting equality with your superior, usurping, and rebellion, that are key features of Feminism, can be traced back to the fall of Lucifer.

 Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.

Genesis 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely dieFor God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

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;  18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;  19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

A while prior to Ace’s assertion of the 1700s being well before Feminism, commenter ‘ray’ had remarked: “I mean there’s no such thing as equality, in heaven or upon Earth, amongst man or woman or angel. Within these ranks there is Created order, each different and having a place or station.   Equality is an abstraction, a construction or artifice, created by Lucifer. The parallel between what happened in the Garden (Eve and quest for Equality) and today’s spiritual and political landscapes isn’t accidental.”

I previously explained a bit about how the Roman state church wrongly added women to the image of God around the end of the fourth century AD in another post: https://laf443259520.wordpress.com/2019/05/18/worshipping-the-great-whore/?wref=tp

It wasn’t until the fourth century around 380 AD that Mary began to be called Mother of God, or “Theotokos” This was said as part of the controversy over the nature of Jesus. Some said he was born human but became God later. Others said Jesus was divine from the moment of inception. Those who believed that Jesus was divine at birth used the slogan: Mary the Mother of God. Actually, the phrase was more like Mary: God-bearer. Saint Ambrose, who lived in Rome before going to Milan as its bishop, venerated Mary as an example of Christian life and is credited with starting a Marian cult of virginity in the 4th century.

In the 5th and 6th century, churches in Rome began to be dedicated to Mary, and from there the Great Whore seated on the seven mountains spoken of in Revelation 17 has continued to adopt features of preexisting pagan goddess worship and further deify Mary, growing in strength in the dark ages, eventually calling Mary the “Queen of heaven”, the same old name as Old Testament idol worshippers used when committing abominations in Jeremiah 7 & 44.  Somewhere early along our church age time line to accepting Satan’s counterfeit goddess worship, it was decided that women must also be in the image of God, because, how could Mary be a goddess, if she isn’t even able to be in the image of God?  So women were deceitfully added into the image of God to bolster the worldly reintroduction of preexisting Roman goddess worship back into the church under the guise of “honoring” Mary.  Satan’s minions deceitfully said, “You’re dishonoring the ‘Mother of God’ if you say she was a sinner and wasn’t even in God’s image”.

I think we would be unwise not to recognize that most all of the necessary components for todays ‘Feminism’ were conjured into place, by the Great Whore (Satan’s state church, of this world) even well before it was called ‘Chivalry’.

Speaking up for silence

Red Brambles

I was quite pleasantly surprised by some comments I read recently that gave me a bit of hope, that there may still be some women who fear God and haven’t thrown in their lot with this world.

Over at Lori Alexander’s ‘The Transformed Wife’ regarding the topic of women being silent in church,(from 1 Corinthians 14:34)  commenter KR said:

June 27, 2019 at 11:23 am  KR says:

I left an earlier comment, but it wasn’t published. What I wanted to say was that for our family, this is extended to the dinner table. My husband likes to have a quiet dinner where he can discuss his day, etc. in a relaxed atmosphere without interruptions from people talking over him. I know many wives who just start talking and going on and on as soon as their husband walks through the door. This is not a peaceful environment.

So for our family, and as a sign of my submission to him, we have an unwritten rule that he is the only one allowed to talk at the dinner table, unless he addresses or asks me or one of the kids a direct question. This way he can talk uninterrupted and we can attentively listen. If I do talk too much on occasion, he will tell me gently “That’s it, end it” and I know that is my cue to be quiet and listen.

I know this is not a requirement because the Bible only directs women to be silent in churches/gatherings, but it has lead to peaceful quiet dinners and it’s what works for our family.

Lori Alexander then created another good post, regarding many women who tried to respond to KR’s comment: https://thetransformedwife.com/many-women-seem-to-enjoy-tearing-down-other-womens-marriages/

MANY women commented under her comment telling her that her husband was wrong, she was being abused, and he was being cruel and unreasonable. They seemed determined to destroy her marriage and speak evil about her husband. I didn’t publish any of these comments since our goal, as Christian woman, should be to want to build marriages up, NOT tear them down.

To which commenter Mother Dearest gives the following great reply that I wanted to share with you.   Lori has a post with it also: https://thetransformedwife.com/become-lifelong-students-of-your-husbands/    Not only do I think the comment below is correct,  But I also was greatly encouraged by her zeal and unabashed boldness to shine God’s light in this darkened generation.

Today’s unregenerate woman is a clamorous glory-hog that cannot imagine enduring a moment of only being seen and not heard. This busy body gads abroad on social media, by phone and in person, minding everything but what God has called her to. She’s quick to speak her mind always, rather than listening to other people’s perspectives and dare I say, perhaps even learning from them.

However, the thing that stirred up the opprobrium that you so graciously shielded us from is three fold: first, the original commenter acknowledged that her husband has a preference i.e. he would like to enjoy some silence when he gets home from work. Feminists do not allow men to have preferences. Only women can have preferences. If men are allowed preferences, soon they will start preferring debt free virgins who have no tattoos and who knows what else they will prefer next? A clean home, well behaved children, delicious and nutritious meals, a vibrant marriage bed??? God forbid!!! So NO PREFERENCES for men.

Secondly, the original commenter demonstrated that not only does she take zero issue with her husband’s preference, she endeavours to give him what he wants and all the feminists cry…booooo because their prideful hearts seethe at the thought of a wife looking to please her husband. Why, she’s letting team woman down. What about all the feminists of old who laid down their dignity, their fertility and their eternal life so that wives today can defy their husbands? She’s being ungrateful by obeying God and her husband.

Thirdly and most egregious is that the husband in question gently prompts his wife to be quiet when she talks more than he deems appropriate. How dare he tell her what to do? Feminists are a law unto themselves and they answer to no one, least of all a husband. That is abusive in their books because women know better than men from a feminist perspective. They prefer a cowering passive husband who prefers nothing, and puts up with their selfishness. They are quick to point out that husbands are called to love their wives as Christ loves the church, but don’t let husbands wash their wives with the water of the Word, that is out of order!!! (See also 1 Peter 3:4-5 Your adornment must not be merely external–braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.)

Thank you Lori for always encouraging every woman to submit to her OWN husband. Naturally, whereas every wife’s heart attitude ought to be the same i.e. submissive, it’s obvious that the practical outworking of submission for every wife will be as diverse as there are husbands. Just because one woman’s husband requires something different from her compared to another, is not tantamount to abuse. For example I am not on Facebook, Twitter or other forms of social media because my husband is of the view that my day is too busy. My husband also likes to know which blogs and books I read and often recommends books for me to read because he takes responsibility for my spiritual growth and likes to protect me from spiritual falsehoods. I am definitely a much better Christian for being married to my husband because he takes the time to point out areas in my life that need amendment and no I am not abused. Also, my husband grew up in a broken and unhappy home that was largely silent/quarrelsome with a distant unapproachable father so he longed for a cheerful home and a close relationship with his children. He purposed to marry a “happy” girl. I know how much this means to him so I don’t have mood swings, raise my voice at him or give him the silent treatment ever. I quell tantrums in the children and teach them Proverbs 15:1. I speak highly of my husband to our children and everyone else and make provision in the week for family bonding activities. My husband and children are very close which makes him so glad. We pray and sing together in our home and even in times of trial, I do my best to cheer everyone up because my husband prefers a happy atmosphere in the home. He calls me his MVP because I delight in doing what he wants which is my God given calling.

Let me urge all wives to be lifelong students of their husbands. Get to know what he wants and what his likes and dislikes are and don’t listen to detractors because you will give an account to God for your submission to your own husband.

Weddings: a Rite of the Patriarchy?

I came across the following post warning about the “sexist” history of many aspects of contemporary wedding ceremonies: https://www.mic.com/articles/139845/7-surprisingly-sexist-wedding-traditions-we-should-change-immediately

I found the authors alarm to be amusing.  Who knew history was so politically incorrect?

If only the white dress was the lone part of the bride’s wardrobe steeped in the patriarchy. Unfortunately, the veil is just as guilty.
