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.

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ

Alzheimer's Disease, Adultery and God's Word

By Angela Wittman "When B. and I realized what we're dealing with and she understood what the situation is, she said to me… 'I know what I have. I know where it's gonna take me. Tell the story. Tell the truth,'" Gasby recounted.  In January, he spoke that truth — and let cameras into his home. It's a home he shares with his wife and his girlfriend, Alex Lerner, who also has a bedroom in the house and helps with B.'s care.  Yesterday morning I happened to catch the segment  Falling in love while caring for your spouse with Alzheimer's disease   that aired on CBS This Morning. . I watched in amazement as two men whose wives had Alzheimer's Disease (one wife is now deceased) openly discussed having adulterous relationships with other women. Is this now to become a new norm? These men and women feel they shouldn't be judged, and shockingly the news anchors interviewing them seemed to agree. My father has Alzheimer's Disease and w
