“Everything that the women’s liberation movement has to offer – fame, status, wealth, pleasure, power, independence – it will all crumble to dust before the judgment seat of Jesus Christ.” (from the Introduction)
“Emancipation! Liberation! Freedom! Choice! Equality! Opportunity!”
Who can object to these lovely words? Under these banners vast forces of social change have been unleashed and have radically transformed our understanding of women’s roles in every area of life – but what does the Bible say?
Against Feminism argues that the Feminist revolution represents the wisdom of the world, and hence is inevitably contrary to many plain biblical teachings.
A careful analysis of women in the Old and New Testaments reveals something very far from modern ideas of unisex and role reversal, first advocated by open opponents of Christianity. Feminists such as Mary Wollstonecraft, John Stuart Mill, Marx and Engels, Lenin and Trotsky, Betty Friedan – theirs and others’ teachings are studied and found to be very far from the cross and from the straight and narrow way of Jesus Christ.
Biblical Christianity offers women what the world does not see or know: forgiveness of sins; the Spirit of God; a constructive life of service to Christ (whether inside or outside of marriage); and eternal life in the kingdom of heaven. The world offers something very different – let’s not make the wrong choice.
“Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation
