This probably won't make me popular and so I will make this short and to the point, but I have to say it: It seems to me that today's women don't just want "equality" anymore; they want to dominate and turn America into a matriarchal society. Before attempting to flog or block me, please hear me out….
I'm all for women's "equal rights." I’m a woman. But these days many women, in my opinion, are going overboard in their attempts to lord themselves over men, raising their voices in an apparent effort, not just “be equal,” but completely subdue them and push them into the background.
People, this is NOT biblical!
(BTW, this rant was spurred on by two female protesters who were excruciatingly disrespectful to Senator Jeff Flake in a Capitol Hill elevator recently after he announced that he'd support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Claiming they were victims of sexual assaults, one of the women shouted at Flake to "Look at me when I'm talking to you! You're telling me that my assault doesn't matter, that what happened to me doesn't matter!" The reality is, her sexual assault has NOTHING, WHATSOEVER, to do with Kavanaugh's ALLEGED sexual attack on Dr. Ford 36 years ago. Her comments and behavior were not only completely disrespectful, but very unfair on several levels.)
America is out of control in many ways. Today, we not only have horrific racial tension with ALL sides behaving badly; but we have the uneducated hating the educated, and the poor hating the rich. We have homosexuals who have bullied the entire country into accepting their lifestyles and forcing our leaders to pass legislation that would allow them to marry.
We have males wanting to be females and vice-versa; and we have pro-abortionists fighting pro-lifers for the “right” to kill innocent unborn babies because being pregnant is an inconvenience in a society where “we’re all equal” and motherhood is secondary to our personal desires to “get ahead.” (Yes, I realize there are OTHER reasons for terminating pregnancies, but is it truly necessary to use abortion as a method of birth control?)
While I’m spilling my guts here and being blunt about it, I’ll venture to add that we also have the stupid and lazy hating and blaming everybody and everything EXCEPT themselves for their lot in life - and they're not just expecting but INSISTING the rest of us take care of them because the Bible supposedly commands it. (Never mind that the Bible DOESN’T command those who have worked hard for what they have, to share their hard-earned money and belongings with the ENTIRE WORLD!)
But, back to certain women who seem to want to turn us into a matriarchal society...
Biblically, a woman has a right to everything a man claims as his right, WHILE HONORING the God-given distinctions between the sexes (Galatians 3:28). Neither gender nor race should ever be used as an excuse to oppress or exclude a person from anything God allows. However, Scripture DOES reveal some differences: Genesis 1:27 and 2:18; 22; Ephesians 5:25–30; 1 Peter 3:7; Jeremiah 32:38–39; Exodus 22:22; Deuteronomy 27:19; Joshua 17:3–4).
What I’m saying here is, when the phrase “women’s rights” agrees with the rights YHWH instituted when He designed the female person, then the Bible fully supports those rights. But, when that term is hijacked to include evil actions that ADONAI never endorsed, then those so-called “rights” are not rights at all.
This goes for both men and women as YHWH has Divine Rules to follow; and each of His Rules were implemented for a reason: To set HIS people (male and female) apart from the world and prepare them for life in Eternity. Those who refuse to follow HIS Rules (straighten up and act right), aren't going to be in Eternity; simple as that.
Hebrews 6: 4. But they who have once descended to immersion and have tasted the gift from heaven and have received the Ruach haKodesh 5. and have tasted the good Word of Elohim and the power of the world to come, 6. cannot again sin and a second time be renewed to repentance; or a second time execute him on a stake and insult the Son of Elohim.
7. For the earth that drinks the rain which comes often upon it and produces the herb that is of use to those for whom it is cultivated, receives a blessing from Elohim. 8. But if it should put forth thorns and briers, it would be discarded and be approaching closely to a curse, and its end would be a conflagration. (AENT)
Hebrews 10: 26 For if we deliberately continue to sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but only the terrifying prospect of Judgment, or raging fire that will consume the enemies. (CJB)
YHWH doesn’t endorse arrogance, pride, anger, covetousness, or gossip, etc. (Isaiah 2:12 and 23:9, 2 Timothy 3:17); nor disrespect for elders or leaders (Leviticus 19:32; Proverbs 16:31) – no matter what one might think of them! (Accosting a Senator in an elevator and telling him to “Look at me when I’m talking to you!” is downright disrespectful! The media types do this type of thing all the time – just take a look at the way they treat President Trump during his news conferences … they yell and berate and interrupt him constantly. No civility there….)
The problem is, somewhere along the line in our supposed “civilized” society, the lines became blurred and decency, respect for ourselves and others, along with morality went completely out the window. Everything YHWH ever considered BAD is now considered GOOD and vice-versa; and anyone daring to challenge that is violently harangued – or even killed! (We’re at the point where you can’t go to school or the grocery store or the movies without wondering if you’re going to come home alive!)
Since sometime in the early Sixties (when, BTW, God was kicked out of schools and the government, and the introduction of the “birth control” pill kicked off the “love the one you’re with sexual revolution”) women began to not only assert their desire for equality in the work place, but in EVERY other way.
This included the right to wear revealing clothes designed to turn men on – which backfired because some men viewed it as an invitation for sex, which in turn caused women to insist they had a “right” to wear whatever they wanted, without being harassed or “sexualized”. This has ballooned into today’s out-of-control movement that even has clothing stores aiming “street-walker/hooker-like” clothing at young elementary school girls (some of whom are actually boys wanting to be girls, because THAT movement is ALSO being shoved down our collective throat!)…
People, we are a nation of arrogant, loud-mouthed, me-oriented HYPOCRITES! This includes not just women, but EVERYONE. Just take a look at the lack of clothing on female Hollywood “stars” during their pat-myself-on-the-back award ceremonies! But, hey, they will tell you in a heartbeat that they don’t want to be sexualized!
They don’t seem to realize that their dress and their come-on, sexually OVERT behavior INVITES sexual advances! After all (and I’m writing this sentence with raw sarcasm) they have a RIGHT to walk around nearly naked and expect men to look the other way. SILLY HYPOCRITES!
When I recently visited a local mall, I saw a female mannikin in some women’s professional wear clothing store dressed in a pantsuit with a blouse that was cut clear down to her belly-button, with the bra-less mannikin’s breasts almost completely exposed. THAT is what “professional women” wear these days? GIVE ME A BREAK!
I think they reality in all this is: We are truly the end times outlined in the Books of Daniel and Revelation. Come, Y’shua, come quickly to save us from ourselves before it’s too late!
