Is it Sinful for Women to Have a Career?

By David J. Stewart | August 2008 | Updated August 2013

       Concerning women working, it is not a sin for a woman to work a job if her husband approves of it. However, a career is a different matter entirely. Going to college and training for a career is a big decision. There are many things to consider.

I believe that the Word of God is abundantly clear of the Lord's intentions in 1st Timothy 5:14-15 that women ought to pursue marriage and motherhood. There's no way for a woman to work a career and be a proper mother. Many women are able to pursue a career because they have family members to help volunteer to care for the children. I am not anyone's judge, so please understand that. I do not mean to hurt anyone's feelings. In view of the economic onslaught against America by the architects (Freemasons) of the New World Order, it is becoming increasingly difficult for young married couples to make it. Truly, these are the “perilous times” (difficult to endure) as foretold in the Bible in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5.

The Bible teaches that a man ought to be the head of his home; not a tyrant, but in charge nonetheless. 1st Timothy 5:14-15 teach that a woman's place is in the home. God created each woman to be a “HELP MEET” to her own husband...

“And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18).

This ought to be a woman's ultimate goal—to marry, have children, be a homemaker and stay out of trouble (not give occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully). Many women today are pursuing a career as their life's work. Sadly, their children are being raised by others, or even worse, by the TV or internet. Many women are foregoing motherhood altogether. It is sad to see young women enrolling into the military, fighting on the frontlines. The Pentagon earlier this year changed their policy on females serving on the frontlines. As a result of the new changes and TV ads, female enrollment is up drastically in the armed forces. God never intended for women to be in the workplace while their children survive in a daycare center with people who are only there to make money. Women are driving tanks, flying helicopters, even entering special op forces. Idiotic Pentagon Is Set To Lift Combat Ban For Women (worst war fate in store for them).

Globalists Forcing Women Into Workplace Has Woefully Eliminated Big Families Reports TIME Magazine

I think if a woman wants to pursue a career, it can be within God's permissive will, if one keeps her priorities straight, i.e., to fulfill the goal of getting married, having children, being a full-time mother to those children, and helping one's husband. Of course, this is VERY difficult because your burning the candle at both ends. I believe that many women today ought to quit their careers, go home and spend time with their kids and husband. Tragically, they cannot, because they're so materialistic that they have bills galore to pay. Materialism (akin to covetousness) is a deadly trap. The Bible teaches in 1st Timothy 6:8 that we ought to be content with just food and clothing. Wow! Most people would die without their TV, radio, VCR, video games, cell phone, computer, et cetera. 

It's all a mind set, a matter of priorities. Most people use the excuse that they want to give their kids a better life by pursuing a career; but oftentimes it doesn't work out that way. There's nothing more precious than a mother who raises her children at home, makes her husband happy by helping him, and spends her time making a house into a home. Only a loving and responsible mother/wife can turn a house into a home. 

A career isn't just a job, it's a lifetime investment, that usually requires a 30-year commitment. I don't think it's wrong for a woman to work outside the home, but it should be only with her husband's blessing. If you pursue a career and get married, you ought to be willing to quit your career at any point if your husband asks you to do so. This is Biblical. A wife is expected by God to obey her husband (Ephesians 5:22... “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord”). Feminism teaches the exact opposite, i.e., that women don't have to obey their husbands at all. 

Having said all that, pray for God's wisdom in this matter. Ask Him to guide you and make the right decisions, which will affect the rest of your life. If you are a woman, I think it's appropriate for you to pursue a career if that's what you think God wants you to do; but know this:

  1. If you marry and your husband asks you to quit your career, you should.
  2. If you have children, you need to raise them yourself (not just spend some time with them a few hours a day). Kids need mom, the biggest mental and spiritual influence in their development. 
  3. Never allow anyone to discourage you from having a big family with many children!

The virtuous woman in Proverbs 31 sold garments she had made and even bought some real estate. She was the envy of the town.  There are many ways to make money which won't lock you into a career. If you do choose a career, try to pick a career that will make it easier on you as a wife and mother. I'm not sure what that would be, but I'd pick something that, if you did quit for several years, you could always go back to it when the kids are older. I would never take computer science, because it changes all the time. After a few years, you'd be in the stone age if you got away from it. But nursing never changes. Once you learn nursing, you have a lifetime skill. You could also start your own business. People make a lot of money pet-watching, house-cleaning, et cetera. 

It's not a sin for you to have a career; but it is a sin if you don't obey your future husband or raise your future children. No mother should pursue a career. I also firmly believe it is a horrible sin to delay having children for the sake of pursuing a career. I've never liked birth control; but cannot say it is sinful per se. I believe God intends for us to have big families (Genesis 1:28). I hate what's going on in China, i.e., forced abortions and force sterilizations. In America, Planned Parenthood is relentlessly trying to reduce the population by talking mother's into murdering their babies, or into not having any more babies. It is sinful. So I say to you, have a big family, and be there for them. Money should be the last of your priorities. 

The Sinister Conspiracy To Destroy Motherhood

One important thing that I want everyone to fully understand is that there is a deliberate attack (yes, a sinister conspiracy) against the American family, which is intended to discourage couples from marrying and conceiving children. Their diabolical plan has worked. By deindustrializing (relocating jobs overseas) the United States, and by the fraudulent Federal Reserve money system (which allows the secret powers behind America to create boom/bust economic cycles), and by using women's liberation propaganda to control public opinion—by these three evils woman have been forced out of the home and into the secular workplace.

Monster Henry Kissinger did a study and found that fewer couples are having children because of women entering the workplace. As difficult as these things may be to grasp, I know what I'm talking about. The occult powers behind the subversion of the U.S. want you to slave at a job for your entire life to pay for a home, have one or two kids at most (if any) and die broke. There are many evil agendas which are relentlessly being set forth in America—legalizing illegals, legalizing same-sex marriages, achieving a North American Union (combining Canada, USA and Mexico), doing away with Biblical Christianity, destroying all patriotism and sovereignty to the United States, eliminating loyalty to parents and home, eliminating faith in a personal God, setting up a national Police State under Homeland Security, removing individualism, et cetera.

Urbanization Is Destroying America

Knowing all this, I encourage young couples to consider moving to a rural area and raising a family. America's cities are war zones of crime, street gangs, thug police and high cost of living. The only remaining bastions of safety in America are small Country towns.

The entire notion of a woman having a career is unbiblical, not sinful per se; but not something that is taught in the Scriptures.  Woman have traditionally stayed at home, working to make a house into a home. This entailed everything from milking the cows, baking cookies, picking apples, making clothing, raising bees for honey, thrashing wheat, to killing chickens for dinner and preparing them. In today's urbanized culture, women have lost the art of being homemakers. Few women make their own clothing anymore, or bake their owns breads. Everything is quick and easy out of a package, to accommodate today's busy career woman.

We need a revival in America, where mothers once again realize the importance of being at home raising their kids, and forsake the root of all evil, which is covetousness (aka, “the love of money”—1st Timothy 6:10). Phooey on a career. Phooey on keeping up with the Joneses. Phooey on securing a financially stable retirement. As I type, there are literally tens-of-billions of dollars in unclaimed retirement funds, et cetera, all across America. Don't be a sucker for the Devil. The biggest mistake you'll ever make, and the loneliest road you'll ever travel, is the path to financial wealth and security. You can save all the money you want, make all the investments you can, buy all the insurance available—you're still going to die one way or another. Anything in your estate will be largely stolen by the government before your kids ever receive a penny. No wonder Jesus told us instead to Lay Up Treasures in Heaven. END
