A man can’t do it. But a woman can.
A woman can nurture a tiny human being from his or her very beginning stage of development – inside her body!
Even if one fails to recognize this as a miracle of creation, it is undeniably an awe-inspiring, scientific phenomenon. Yet feminists seem to hate it.
The vast majority of women who call themselves “feminists” are pro-abortion – women who refer to pregnancy not as a stunningly beautiful creation and progression of human life, but with terms like “parasitism” – as if a woman is being attacked by an evil invader.
The original suffragettes who fought for women’s rights, like Susan B. Anthony, saw the true beauty in creation – in themselves and others. They recognized abortion as a “crime against humanity.” They called it “feticide” and “child murder.”
One of the most striking and beautiful qualities our Creator has placed within women is that of a nurturer, someone who cares for and encourages growth or development in another. Though it’s not the only quality God has placed within us, it is an integral part of our nature. Perhaps that’s why when God created the first woman, He called her a “helper.”
The Holy Spirit is also called the “helper.” It’s not at all something to be ashamed of.
He created us to reflect that loving, comforting, encouraging quality of Himself. It is the essence of who we are. It is beauty.
But feminists and their supporters hate this perception of women. It’s somehow an injurious insult. They often dismiss (and hate) this innate feminine quality in their desire to be more like men. It, in their view, diminishes their value.
In my view, today’s feminists are misogynists. Yes, I said it. Misogyny is, by definition, “hatred of women.” So, if one hates women at their very core, the shoe fits.
They have a distorted view of men, women, and life itself. Gender confusion didn’t begin with the wave of transgenderism sweeping our nation. What we are seeing today is a generational progression of hatred toward God’s design. The misogyny we are witnessing is a result of something deeper – Misotheism (hatred of God).
It’s spelled out clearly in Romans 1, specifically verses 19-21:
For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
God is honored through our gratefulness for the “invisible attributes” He has put within us to reflect His glory. But by refusing to walk in the light of His presence, will, and glory, we are left vulnerable as a result (vs. 24-25):
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever!
We see this passage played out in feminists’ worship of their own bodies. Just look at the Women’s March in Washington, DC. Women were clad in costumes made to look like female genitalia.
Pro-abortion feminists often dig their heels in with statements like, “It’s my body!” The irony of using these words to justify the sacrifice of one’s child is striking.
Jesus also said, “This is my body.” He said these words just hours before He was crucified as the final sacrifice to atone for our sin once and for all.
This is my body, which is given for you (Luke 22:19).
Thank God many of the Women’s March events around the country were canceled this year! Strangely, one of the reasons cited by event organizer Allison Edrington for its failure to materialize in several cities around the country was the shortage of “non-binary” women – “women” without female reproductive parts – in its leadership.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools (Romans 1:22). Sometimes it appears that the whole world has gone crazy. It’s no surprise that the New Testament uses the terms “world” and “kingdom” to separate believers from unbelievers. As we move closer to His coming, the separation grows more unpleasantly obvious.
As disciples, we are to be in the world but not of it (John 17:14-16), all the while striving for the completion of God’s purpose in coming into our presence (in Christ Jesus), not to condemn the world but to save it (John 3:17).
