Feminist. Feminist. Fe-mi-nist.
To align yourself with something means that you take on its values, ideas and plans.
What many women thought of as “feminism” back in the 60’s and 70’s is completely different from what it has evolved into today.
Does feminism ...as we know it today...and Christianity work together?
Is it possible to be "all in" on the ideologies of modern day feminism, to call yourself a feminist (little pink hats included) and call yourself a true, on fire follower of Christ?
I believe that Gloria #Steinem acted in the spirit of Jezebel even then. You remember Jezebel. She hated and killed the Prophets of God. It was her calling in life to destroy the mouthpieces of God before they could let the world know what direction God actually wanted to move in. She was on her satanically inspired "game" so much, that she had her own set of prophets. She had 450 prophets of Baal and another 400of the groves, or "high places" of worship that fellowshipped with her and were at her beck and call.
(1 Kings 18)
Some of her ideas sounded good and some were even advantageous to women and for women, but, in the process...some women began to evolve in their thinking to believe that men=oppressor or that man/woman relationship meant that someone had to have the upper hand and control things and if that was the case, we would be that one. Well, in order to control strong manly “Alpha males”, it had to include emasculating them, berating them and causing them to be manipulated through feelings of guilt, because the “Alpha male” (a type of male that is a leader in a room full of men and in his home) is innately strong, protective, leading, guiding, provider...among some other things and the only way to somehow CONQUER him...and gain our RIGHTFUL place as women .:.was to ascribe to do the things listed above. This spirit cannot function without the spirit of Ahab which allows it to manipulate and control things....because of his own shortcomings and spiritual short sightedness.
Feminism tells women that they do not need a man and that they are enough (in an underhanded kind of way) and that they can do it all. This is the first trick the enemy that is used to get women to overwork themselves in an unhealthy manner, and he is still succeeding with that elementary trick today. Another trick he used is the adoption of the idea that we can have children and attempt to raise them alone..., or never marry...because of distrust or to even make women believe that we can sleep around for as long as we want.... because “I can do anything a man can do”........these and other silly tricks (are for kids) are elementary and hold no weight or validity but the enemy continues to pulled these same tricks.
All that needs to be said can never be said here, but yeah... I am not a feminist.
I am a powerful, powerhouse of a woman of God who is even stronger because my strength is not found in me...nor is it found in a man made title or organization, but in Christ. Feminism. We can do whatever we desire, without attempting to take anything away from men, but we can continue to fully embrace who they are and what they have to offer.
Gloria Steinem and the feminist movement of the 60’s and 70’s certainly won’t get any credit for what only God could have done in my life. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
I rise...because of #Christ. I break glass ceilings... because of Christ. I have been the only woman or 1 of 2 in the #boardroom...because of Christ. I #conquer...because of Christ. All that I am .... is because of Christ.
I did it HIS way. I AM NOT A #FEMINIST.
I AM A WOMAN OF GOD... formed, crafted, created to RISE.....next to...not behind...my HUSBAND.
Rise woman, rise....
..........under the shadow of the Almighty.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
