Reaping the Fruit of Feminism

By Angela Wittman

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that he will also reap.

Gal. 6:7

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
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.

Ephesians 5:22,23

Dear Friends,

This article is written mostly for my sisters in Christ who are struggling with the fruit of feminism. What is the fruit of feminism?

  • Discontentment
  • Broken marriages
  • Depression
  • The murder of preborn babies by abortion
  • Couples living together without marriage
  • Fornication and adultery
  • Homosexuality
  • Suicide
  • Neglected and abused children
  • Unemployment and loss of jobs for men

I firmly believe that we can trace these ills of society to feminism. Feminism is a radical transformation of our culture. Traditional families are to be destroyed, and as a result lives are lost through disease, suicide and abortion. Do you think I may be exaggerating a bit?

Here are some excerpts from the National Organization for Women:

"We are committed to a feminist ideology and reaffirm our historic commitment to gaining equality for women, assuring, safe, legal and accessible abortion and full reproductive freedom, combating racism, stopping violence against women, ending bigotry and discrimination based on sexual orientation and color, ethnicity, national origin, economic status, age, disability, size, childbearing capacity or choices, or parental or marital status."

(NOW 1998 Declaration of Sentiments

"We are committed to seeing that full marriage and social equality are a reality for same-sex couples," said NOW President Kim Gandy. "We are asking our allies not to cave to pressure created by the radical right. We will not compromise our values. We will not allow discrimination to be written into the Constitution."

(NOW Remains Dedicated to the Right to Marry for Same-Sex Couples,

In contrast, there is nothing more satisfying for a woman of God, than doing as He commands. Obedience to our husbands, while living moral lives brings peace and happiness to our homes. Obedience is not a "bad" word, nor is submission. When you obey the LORD and submit to His commands, you will find rest for your soul as you will reap a quiet heart. Part of obedience to the LORD is submission to the man God has placed in your life to lead you -- your husband.

I recently came across an article written by R.C. Sproul, which beautifully expresses how we should look at submission to our husbands from a Biblical viewpoint:

"Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord (verse 22). This is a service and an act of worship that the woman gives to the Lord himself. It is the Lord’s will that the wife be submissive to her husband, and if she wants to honor Christ, then one of the concrete ways she does this is by being in submission to her husband. If a woman is contentious and refuses to follow the leadership of her husband, she is in rebellion, not simply against him, but also against Christ.

"Let me make a qualification here. Whenever we are called to obey anyone, be it a civil magistrate, a domestic leader or our church rulers, we are told in the whole context of Scripture that we must ultimately be submissive to God. So if there is ever a conflict between the law of God and the rule of a human being, not only may you disobey, you must disobey the human command.

"There is a teaching which has gone widely through evangelical Christianity which says that for a woman to be obedient to this passage, she must obey her husband no matter what he tells her to do. This is not true. For example, if her husband tells her to live a life of prostitution, she is to show her obedience to Christ by disobeying her husband’s wicked commands. That woman must disobey her husband, because her husband is commanding her to do something that God forbids. Similarly, if the husband forbids her to do something that God commands, she must disobey her husband. "

(Taken from Christian Submission Ephesians 5: 21 - 33, by R.C. Sproul,

Please compare the above quoted wisdom from Dr. Sproul with a quote I found on the website Quotations About Feminism:

"The foolish and cruel notion that a wife is to obey her husband has sent more women to the grave than to the courts for a divorce." ~Lemuel K. Washburn, Is The Bible Worth Reading And Other Essays, 1911

A rebellious attitude like that expressed above will only lead to rebellion, and the destruction of our society.

My prayer for Christian women is that they not fall for the propaganda coming out of the feminist movement. I remember as a young woman feeling awkward and intimidated, as I did not have any desire for a career. My heart's desire was to be a wife and mother. I praise the LORD that I was able to stay home, raise my sons, bake cookies, help with their schoolwork and keep a clean house.

Last November, my husband brought to my attention that I had been slipping into a feminist state of mind. He reminded me of when I first became a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, I had tacked a note to our kitchen bulletin board which read:

Angie's Priorities:

#1. God
#2. Husband
#3. Children
#4. Church
#5. Ministry

His complaint was that I had begun to place him at the bottom of the list, and he was right. My plea to Christian women is for you to keep your priorities in proper order; to love the LORD with all your hearts, respect your husbands, love your children and be content with what God has given you. Don't buy into the lie of feminism, as our society is presently reaping it's fruit. Submit yourselves to God's clear teaching on your role as a Christian woman, and you will see righteousness taking root in your family which will then produce fruit of happiness and joy. Amen.

Kent State, the Summer of 1970 and the Grace of God

  Me in 1975 - Seeking God. Al Baker recently wrote an article on the tragedy of the Kent State demonstrations and the killing of four students in May of 1970:  Four Dead in Ohio ( FORGET NONE OF HIS BENEFITS )  . I remember being 12 years-old at the time this happened and the disagreement between my father (a full-time Air National Guardsman) and myself. I could see that he was pained over the event, but he defended the soldiers who fired on the students and I was shocked at his defense of their actions. I also remember that my friends and I embraced the rebellious culture of the time and soon found ourselves acting like our "heroes;" while we were only in our early teens we became somewhat jaded and mistrusted those in authority. By the time I turned 17 years-old, I began to have a yearning in my heart to become a Christian - I wanted to become a new creation, but I didn't know how. (As a child I remember watching televangelists and reciting the "sinner's praye

Is Satan Real? Here's My Story.

Is Satan real? I think so and here's my story of a frightening experience that drove me straight toward  Christ. My story begins in the early 1970's while visiting the Wisconsin Dells area with my parents, I had brought a friend on vacation with us and she and I decided to walk around the local town square while my parents shopped for food and other items for our two week camping trip at Castle Rock Lake .  Historic Juneau County Courthouse on the town square in Mauston, WI Image Source:  Juneau County Courthouse - Juneau County Courthouse - Wikipedia My friend and I were both in our early teens; but we looked older. So, we were quite flattered when some local teenaged boys sitting on the lawn of the Courthouse noticed us, and we stopped to talk to them. We told them we were from Missouri and would be camping at Castle Rock Lake for the next couple of weeks.  Source:  Castle Rock - Juneau County Government ( I explained that my dad was in the Missouri Air National Guard

Dementia - Seeing through a glass darkly....

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  ~1Corinthians 13.12 KJV ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I came across this article by Dr. Barry York written in 2014 and posted at Gentle Reformation , which I never read until today. If you have a parent/spouse/friend etc. with dementia and you aren't certain of their salvation, please read this. I think you will find it encouraging. It gives me great hope as my father suffered from dementia before his death earlier this year and who assured me he had asked the Lord for forgiveness while being ill. Salvation in a Dementia Ward Walking down the long hospital hallway, I approached the room in the emergency area where they had told me she would be found. As I came near the door, I found a security guard sitting there. He looked at me with sympathy as I identified myself and, with a warning and sad shaking of his head, gave me permission to enter.
