Two More Lies

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1 – 2

Lie No. 2: In order for a woman to experience worth, they must be elevated above men and men must in turn become more feminine.

The truth is God created male and female – both created in His likeness, but in a particular order with a particular design and a particular purpose.

“The history of Christian thought and teaching is mirrored by the sinister history of heresy. This is because ‘the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned’ (1 Corinthians 2:14). Heresies come fundamentally from man, and reflect the way that the natural man would like God to be, rather than the way God actually is. This is both the source of heresy and the reason for its appeal. By heresy we mean not merely teaching that departs from the Bible, but teaching that departs from the Bible in such a way as to overthrow the fundamentals of the Faith;” – Banner of Truth on Heresy and Gnosticism


Feminism preaches that if you want worth -you must be elevated above men. We don’t find value in being equal. We find value in being over. Ruling. Making the rules.

“Radical feminism is moved along today by this gnostic viewpoint; it is moved along by the idea that the woman is the savior of mankind. As in Gnosticism, the creator God of Genesis, the foolish God, has to go. He is male. He is tyrannical. He denies basic human liberties, demands total obedience, threatens punishment for evil deeds; consequently, He’s got to go.

Feminist liberation releases all of us from God, releases us from all His evil male values, which He’s dumped into men. And by the way, the only hope is for women to become fully feminist, and for men to become feminine; then you’ve got androgyne. We’ve got to wipe out roles. We’ve got to wipe out marriage. We’ve got to get rid of family authority. We’ve got to get rid of stifling morality. The serpent Eve wants to set free; the false God of the Bible wants to enslave.” – John MacArthur


It’s not about men or women being superior. It’s clear that the battle of the sexes is truly rooted in selfishness. It’s about Christ being Supreme – as it says in Colossians – Christ is preeminent.

Lie 3: There are certain achievements that give us more worth and value than others.

Truth: Jesus said to Peter – you must follow me.

This is a drumbeat of feminism – woman can do anything – but really they should focus on these select things because they are where we show the world how amazing and powerful and supreme we are.

The problem again is this self focus. It’s about me and I have decided what achievement and success are. But truly, God defines this through His word – take n Micah 6:8 says he has told you, oh man, what is good; and what does the lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
