Series on Feminism in the Church – Part III Attack on Marriage

Hello again, dear friends! I hope this post has found you all well. As we return to this troubling series today, please pray for me. The reading material I’ve had to research for this post is grievous. Particularly in this part of the series, with the attack on marriage. Many of us have felt the sting of our parents divorcing, or perhaps were raised by a single parent. I have family members hurting right now because their spouse left them. Marriage is an unmistakably beautiful union, where God takes two people and makes them one. What God has joined together, let no man tear apart. In my last post in this series I explained that feminism can not coexist with Christianity, I hope this post further underlines that truth. I apologize in advance for the quotes, beloved, I’m sure they’ll grieve you as much as they have me.

When Jesus is questioned about divorce in Mark 10 He points to the very first marriage, quoting as He often did from Genesis. In the beginning God made them male and female and the two became one flesh. This is a beautiful thing, dear ones. Marriage is the only thing that God compares with Christ’s relationship to His Church. Husbands should love their wives like Christ loves the church. This alone has placed marriage on such a pedestal that we, as born again believers, must be willing to defend it. Unfortunately, in this case we have to defend Gods plan for marriage against feminism, which is currently creeping into the church. Feminist scholars, often teaching our children in universities, view marriage with as much hostility as they view Christianity.

The question I want to pose here is whether or not feminism should be in the church. You can clearly see my opinion on that question, as I’ve seen first hand the damage that is caused when marriages are destroyed. Every church, and believer, is going to have to answer this question for themselves. What we’ve seen so far this year is that a social gospel is being pushed throughout the Body of Christ, and with it comes feminism. How will we answer this movement? I hope this series will help you all in that regards.

Beloved, let us not forget that we stand on the completed Word of God. When the world tempts us to falter, to set aside, or to go against Scripture it’s time to take a stand. The ‘tolerant’ will slander and abuse you, but stand you must. This is not an option, friends, we have one book, the Bible, that we follow. When the fads and movements of the culture we live in turn away from the teaching therein, we are a peculiar people set aside for the glory of God, we do not follow the culture. So be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

    1. Thank you, brother, that encouragement was much needed. I think I’ll be doing just one more. I’ve been enjoying your series on the Solar System, I can’t wait to share them! How many more will there be?

  1. My husband and I have been married for 16 years. I truly love being married. It was one of my greatest blessings. I love that my husband loves me as Christ loves the church. I love that I have the honor of respecting my husband for going above and beyond to support our family. I find it disheartening sometimes when feminists view marriage and motherhood as this huge burden. Femininity is needed in the church, not feminism.

    1. What an excellent point, friend! Femininity, not feminism. Thank you for your comment, marriage is such a blessing. My husband and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary this September. I never have deserved all the tremendous blessings God has given me, on top of salvation, justification, and sanctification I get to spend my life with my best friend! I couldn’t imagine disrespecting him just to lift myself up, or treating him and our daughter as a a burden. May the Lord bless you!
