So Far from What God Intended
By David J. Stewart
1st Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
I mean no unkindness to anyone, sincerely. I know there are many hardworking women who have applied themselves to become successful in a career.
However, the Bible says what it says. God hasn't changed. God's Word hasn't changed. The world has certainly changed in many ways over the past 2,000 years, but God is still the same (Malachi 3:6). God desires for women to be mothers, and care for the home.
1st Timothy 5:14 tells us what God's will is concerning younger women... “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan.” Here we notice 4-things:
- Get married
- Bear children
- Guide the house
- Stay out of trouble
That's it. That's what God wants for young women. 1st Timothy 5:15 tells us that women who fail to obey these divine priorities have turned aside after Satan.
It is tragic that being a homemaker has become so despised nowadays, which is frowned down upon by career-minded women. Feminism has engineered women in America. A stay-at-home-mom is often viewed by career women as being a slave, a victim and having no life. The problem is that American society has deteriorated to the point where motherhood is no longer considered an honor and privilege. Many feminists view children as a nuisance, a hindrance to personal success; thus, many blinded women have chosen not to get married, not to bear children and not to guide the house. It is evil.
The first priority God sets for young women is getting married. It is a wicked sin to “shack up” and fornicate. God wants a marital commitment between two people before they become sexually intimate. With the free distribution of condoms in public schools, godless sex-education which encourages fornication as being socially acceptable, and the sex-crazed American culture... most teenage girls have already had premarital sex by the time they finish high-school. Thus, it is no big deal to them to continue in a sinful lifestyle of fornication, birth-control and pursuing a career. This is far from what the God of the Bible intended. Marriage is not the old-fashioned way, it's the right way. God wants young women to get married. If you're not married, then you shouldn't be having sex. To do so is the sin of fornication (Hebrews 13:4).
Feminism has spawned an entire generation of lesbians who despise men, and are now seeking the legal right to partake in same-sex marriages. This is evil in God's eyes and a form of spiritual and mental illness. There is nothing normal nor acceptable about homosexuality. Romans 1-24-32 plainly teaches that homosexuality is against nature, decency and God.
God wants young Christian woman to get married to a Christian man.
Planned Parenthood wants to kill your children. That's what they do, that's all they do, and they won't stop until your baby is dead. Do you hear me? God wants you to have babies, lots of them! God is for big families! Don't let the Devil rob you of the blessing of children. Psalm 127:3, “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Children are a gift from God. Genesis 1:28a, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Overpopulation is a myth. If you do the research, you'll find that poor black women are most likely to get abortions, while the wealthiest Caucasians rarely receive abortions. As shocking as it may seem, there were 74 abortions for every 100 births in the city of New York in 2004. The richer you are, the less likely you are to abort your children. Or put another way, the government wants to murder your baby because you're not wealthy.
The tragic irony is that millions of American women have been duped into thinking that they're exercising their feminist rights by getting an abortion; when in reality they've fallen hook, line and sinker into a malicious propaganda campaign intended to get American women to voluntarily abort their own children. You've been suckered out of your children! So while rich families enjoy their children and grandchildren in the grandeur of their exquisite homes at Christmas time, you're sitting lonely on Christmas Eve with empty places around the Christmas tree. If I were you, I'd hate feminism.
Many career-minded women are using all sorts of birth-control to delay having children until they have achieved success. Many want to become financially settled before they have children, so they can provide the best for their kids. At least, this is the delusion that they have been led to believe. It is heathendom. God wants you to have children now, not when you can afford them. You'll never have enough money to afford kids, so have them. Money should NEVER be a factor in deciding to have children. God has promised to provide for His children. Matthew 6:25, “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” The unsaved world lives in clinical paranoia, storing seedlings in mountains and worrying about everything, including the myth of over-population.
God wants young Christian women to get married and bear children. Have faith in God.
Guide the House
God never intended for women to pursue careers at the expense of motherhood. God intended for women to be keepers at home. The Bible even uses this phrase... Titus 2:4-5, “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” Notice the simplicity of the word “good”; yet so many wives are bad nowadays. Also, notice the word “obedient.” Wives are to obey their husbands as unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:22, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” Those are some strong words. America's wives are for the most part, rebellious against God and their husbands. Judgment day is coming!
A wife is Biblically supposed to be good, discreet (having prudence) and chaste (morally pure). These words describe few women these days. Multitudes of American women dress immodestly, have dirty-minds, curse, lack sensibility and are ingrates. Notice that the Word of God is blasphemed (i.e., evil spoken of) when a professed Christian woman disobeys her husband, acts irresponsibly, and fails to properly care for her husband and children. Woe unto that woman!
God wants young women to be keeper at home—baking, cooking, sewing, doing laundry, teaching her children, taking care of herself, doing small repairs around the house, taking care of family business, and being a help meet to her husband anyway she can. That's why God created the woman—to help her husband. Genesis 2:18, “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an HELP MEET for him.” (Please note that all Scriptures are quoted from the trustworthy King James Bible.) No creature can truly be happy unless it fulfills the purpose for which it was created. The Bible plainly teaches that Eve was created for Adam, to help him.
The idea of a woman having a career came from the ungodly, heathen world and not from the Scriptures. God never intended for women to be executives, cops, helicopter pilots, lawyers, realtors, soldiers, pastors, et cetera. Modern apostate society treats women just like men. As a consequence, women now act like men. The Bible teaches that these women have TURNED ASIDE AFTER SATAN (1st Timothy 5:15). Don't get mad at me, get mad at God, because He said it. They are not fulfilling God's purpose for their life. It doesn't matter if they're doing something noble, it's not what God intended for them to do with their life. God intended for young women to marry, bear children, guide the house and stay out of trouble. America is going to Hell because of a lack of godly women. Instead of pursuing motherhood and being a submissive wife, young women instead want to put on the pants and do a man's job, earn man's salary and BE A MAN! The masculinity of career women prove my point largely.
Every time I drive by a construction site, I always see a woman waving the traffic flag. She ought to be at home baking bread, not waving trucks and automobiles past a construction zone. What is wrong with America? We've lost our minds as a nation. Many people see no harm in women pursuing professional careers, but when it comes down to reality, those type of women act and think like men. They are decisive, strong-willed, tough, loud-mouthed, rugged and lack the Biblical character traits that God desires in a Christian woman. The Amish people have a beautiful culture. Their kids aren't programmed to work in factories the rest of their lives. Their daughters are taught to cook, sew and be mothers. Their boys are taught to make furniture, grow crops and be fathers. The rest of America's kids know how to play Super Mario, curse in Spanish and do the moonwalk.
We've become a nation of losers! Feminists have convinced American women that aborting their kids is the responsible thing to do. This sick evil all goes along with the career-minded woman's mentality. Americans have been suckered into believing that by voting they have done their patriotic duty. Voting will NEVER change anything in a monopolized two-party corrupt system. Is that so hard to figure out? Americans still believe that this is the “Land of the Free,” where 25% of the world's prison inmates are incarcerated (but we only have 5% of the world's population). Land of the free? I don't think so! But we think we're free. The American people are in denial about so many things. The average American really believes “In God We Trust” as a nation, like our dollar says; but we teach kids that their nearest relative is a gorilla and they evolved from stardust. We kicked prayer out of the public schools in 1962 and the Bible in 1963. One nation under God? You're kidding me, right? And what's with that hellhole called “Sin City”? Is that how we honor God?
There is nothing sadder to me than seeing a women acting like a man, doing a man's job, expressing herself with a man's disposition, and being so far away from what God intended for her to be. I realize that we're living in a different world today than a century ago; but right hasn't changed. God hasn't changed. God's Word hasn't changed. Genuine Christianity hasn't changed. So why should Christian women change to fit in with the sick, godless, perverted, greedy, murderous, adulterous, anti-family agenda of American society today? You shouldn't!
Stay Out of Trouble
1st Timothy 5:14,“I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan.”
It seems that this fourth priority is one of the hardest for many young wives. God says he wants young women to get married to a man, bear children, guide the house and then keep the dirty-laundry in the family. God specifically commands wives to avoid doing anything that will give people reason to judge and criticize. So many young wives go running to the neighbor's house when there's a marital argument, then the neighbor's take sides, call the police and you've got a 3-ring circus going. Ladies, you need to learn to take a walk when you're angry, and don't going crying on someone's shoulder, because they will ruin your marriage if you let them. People are destructive. It's not their marriage, so they've got nothing to lose. I'm so sick and tired of busy-bodies minding other people's business. If you want people to help ruin your marriage, there are millions of them standing in line waiting to do so. All they're waiting for is a foolish wife with a bitter heart whose sinful enough to abandon her marriage vows and quit. We are living in a world of fools. Don't throw your marriage away.
Watch Your Mouth Ladies
And another thing ladies, watch your mouth. More husbands snap because of a wife's big mouth than anything else. I remember a story in the news many years ago when I lived in Chicago. The incident happened in one of the suburbs. An elderly couple were sitting in their old car and the man's wife made some comment about their neighbor's brand new car. The man snapped, pressed the gas pedal and drove their car into the neighbor's swimming pool. When the police and fire department came, they found the couple alive sitting at the bottom of the pool underwater. A woman's mouth can really make a man upset. Proverb 21:9, “It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.” Too many wives spend half their day gossiping on the phone. Proverb 18:8, “The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.”
God says in His Word that wives are not to give any occasion to the enemy to speak reproachfully. Who's the enemy? That would be the person (or persons) who would love to know you're having marriage problems, so they can go tell everybody. Let's face it, people love to tear each other down. It's what the heathen world loves to do. That's why the manure-spreading newsmedia is so popular and has such high ratings. But God hates gossip. The name “Satan” means “one who accuses.” Satan continually accuses us before God day and night. Revelation 12:10, “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” You're never more like Satan than when you point out the faults of others. Shut your mouth!
Are Women Inferior to Men?
Yes, of course! No, I'm just kidding. That's what many feminists want to think. God did not create Eve from Adam's head to rule with him, nor from Adam's foot to be trampled upon; but from Adam's rib, which is the nearest thing to Adam's heart. Isn't that beautiful? I am not a male chauvinist. I do not believe that women are inferior. Quite to the contrary. God chose to perpetuate the human race through the body of a woman. That's quite an honor. It's too bad Planned Parenthood (Herodhood) doesn't see it that way. If a woman does a man's job, she should receive a man's pay. That is commonsense.
I am all for equal human rights; but the Bible gives the husband the power of authority over his own wife. Feminism has nothing to do with equal human rights; it is a matter of women wanting equal authority in the home, the church, society and even demanding a feminine side of the Godhead. Lucifer was kicked out of Heaven for wanting to “be LIKE the most high” (Isaiah 14:14). Lucifer desired EQUALITY with God. That was his downfall. Likewise, Lucifer (the serpent) tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden by deceitfully saying that her and Adam would become “as gods” (Genesis 3:5) if they disobeyed God. Eve desired to be EQUAL with God. We see this same evil attitude in the world today in feminism. Feminists desire to be EQUAL in authority in the home, the church, society and to redefine God as being part female. God is strictly masculine.
Having said that, did you know that the Bible teaches mutual submission? I'll bet you didn't know that ladies. Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” Feminists don't ever consider that part of the Bible, they just accuse Christianity of making slaves out of women. Husbands are supposed to love and submit to their wives as well; but in a conflict situation, the wife is to submit to the husband. That is God's plan. A husband who is acting like a monstrous dictator is not exemplifying Jesus Christ in his life, and his wife is going to have a much harder time submitting to his authority since he is abusing it. The door swings both ways.
Howbeit, a spouse DOESN'T have a right to slack off on his or her duties or to quit the marriage because the other spouse is not cooperating. That is heathendom. You promised God and your spouse, “For Better, For Worse; 'Til death do us part.” Mark 10:9, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” A wife who loves God will put up with her husband, and vise versa. Even if a non-legal separation is necessary for some time, or life if need be, a divorce should never be considered. If you are a Christian, nothing should ever be done through the unsaved court system (1st Corinthians 6:1). If you are not a born-again Christian who loves Jesus Christ, then you likely won't understand this Biblical teaching. No Christian should ever take another Christian to court, and that includes divorce. God says if the matter cannot be resolved outside of court, then let the matter go. There are many ways to handle marital disputes, but divorce is the lowest road one can take. For a wife to divorce is rebellion, and God says rebellion is equal to the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness as the sin of idolatry (1st Samuel 15:23).
I know a lot of women don't like what I'm preaching, but that's ok, you've been wrong before. I didn't write the Bible. I'm just preaching It. Women were created to be a HELP MEET for a husband, in a marriage, with children, in a house, minding your own business and staying out of trouble. That's what God wants. Besides, women look goofy carrying briefcases and wearing suits. Many women disagree with the Bible. They think that because times have changed that the Bible is outdated and obsolete. That's a sinful way to think. God hasn't changed. The Bible hasn't changed. Doing the right thing hasn't changed. Motherhood hasn't changed.
Television is far from reality. Only on TV can a woman whip ten men. In real life it is very different. The feminist agenda has saturated television with insane portrayals of women. God didn't intend for women to be in charge over men. It is unbiblical, unethical and just plain ridiculous. God made men to be decisive, tough, upright, clean-minded, respectable, gentlemen, rugged and to lead. Women are supposed to be mothers, wives, dainty, feminine, charming, sweet, soft, submissive to their own husbands, modest, chaste, virtuous, meek, shamefaced, quiet and respectful. God created men and women differently. I've read the book, “Women are from Venus; Men are from Marrs.” The essence of the entire book is that men and women are created differently in every aspect, and if we understand that, then we'll be more understanding, patient and cooperative with our spouse. That's very true.
Modern American society is crazy, where the lines between men and women have been horribly blurred. It is heathendom. Men ought to be blue-collar laborers, leaders, soldiers and cops. Women ought to be mothers and homemakers. If you need to get rid of that extra car and move into a smaller home that you can afford, then do it! You don't need to “keep up with the Joneses,” you need to please God. Forget the extra money!
A career woman is very far from what God intended for her to be. That is all I am saying. If you're reading this article, and you're a career woman, it's not too late to please God. Ask yourself, “What will my career matter 100-years from now?” I realize that every situation is different and some career women do manage to still be good mothers and wives; BUT for every success story there are a dozen horror stories.
I realize that the things I'm teaching are about as unpopular as Noah's flood, but it is Biblical. I simply ask you to examine the Scriptures, such as 1st Timothy 5:14 and Titus 2:4-5, and apply them to your own personal life. I am not trying to be unkind, I am simply saying that the whole modern idea of a woman pursuing a career is very far from what God intended for a woman.
I think urbanization (herding people into big cities) has destroyed America. The cost-of-living is much cheaper out in the country, and life is far less complicated, and people have a lot more faith in God. You need to quit your career, move out to the country and buy you a home where you can raise a family. You don't need a lot of money. The greatest things in life are not things. 1st Timothy 5:14 may seem ridiculous to some of you women, but it is God's way for you to be happy.
You can ignore the Scriptures until the day you die, but then you'll have to answer to God and live with the memories of the life you chose. What will you have to show for your life? A career never made anyone happy in eternity. How many souls will you have won to the Lord in your lifetime? How many lost sinners did you witness to? How much quality time did you spend with your family? Will that promotion really matter then?
