Feminism is based in arrogance, and it's often used as contradiction argument against God's Word.
My broooooooooos.....c'mon vwv

The actions of the modern, militant feminists are geared to cause women to rise up and rebel against the order that God has given to mankind. That brand of feminism seeks to impose humanistic solutions that are in direct opposition to the Word of God. Feminism was originally a positive movement, focused on giving women the basic rights God intends for every human being to have. Tragically, feminism has gone past those roots to focus on destroying any trace of a distinction in roles between men and women.

Eve believed the lie that eating the fruit would bring her wisdom. She lusted and she took or arrogated to herself something that was forbidden. This is the basis for the feminist movement. Women have bought into the lie that feminism will bring them what they want, what they think that they "deserve." However, the promise is empty for the premise is based in pride and pride goes before a fall. "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18).

I’ve heard a lot of people say things like this:

The Bible Condones Rape on Women, forcing them to marry their rapist! Deuteronomy 22:28-29!!!1!!!



It’s funny how people use this verse and they automatically say that it’s dishonoring to the woman. Let try reading the last few verses shall we? We might find something important here:
" But if out in the country a man happens to meet a young woman pledged to be married and rapes her, only the man who has done this shall die. Do nothing to the woman; she has committed no sin deserving death. This case is like that of someone who attacks and murders a neighbor, for the man found the young woman out in the country, and though the betrothed woman screamed, there was no one to rescue her."

What mercy on the woman!

Now, Deuteronomy 22:28-29 talks about a man who had just raped a single virgin woman against her will, and he gets caught in the act. Back then in those times, being a virgin was regarded as a great virtue and most sought trait in a woman when it came to marriage. Getting married was something that every woman craved: having a man in your life meant you were able to survive with more money coming in to put bread and water on the table, and so forth. When you take away a woman's virginity and not marry her, it basically made her chances very very slim. So as punishment for taking a woman's most virtuous possession, he was to marry her and support her as his wife, as well as take care of the child should he have impregnated her. This way, the woman is made sure that she is taken care of regardless of her loss and pain, and the man is paying the consequence for committing a crime.


“God doesn’t consider man and women to be treated equally! 1 Corinthians 11:8!!1!!!



That verse is not talking about equality but of gender roles. This does not elevate man nor degrade woman. It simply teaches that God has a unique role to fulfill for each gender. This is the traditional complementarian view. Complementarianism, however, is not chauvinism.
God does not play favoritism when it comes to equallity : () &
Galatians 3:28 "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."



“Women are not allowed to speak their minds, so they must not have rights or honor!! 1 Corinthians 14:34-35!!!1!!!”



The context of 1 Corinthians 14:33-35 is talking about interpreting and understanding the gifts of tongues and prophecy (1 Corinthians 14:26-32). Therefore, 1 Corinthians 14:34 is not commanding women to be absolutely silent in the church all the time. It is only saying that women should not participate when tongues and/or prophecy is being interpreted and tested (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22; 1 John 4:1). This is in agreement with 1 Timothy 2:11-12 which says that women should not teach or have authority over men. If women were involved in deciding whether a prophecy was truly from God, they would be disobeying what the Bible says in 1 Timothy 2:11-12. Therefore, Paul tells women to be silent when tongues and prophecy are being interpreted so that they will not be disobeying God’s Word. This doesn't bring up other matters such as leadership or participation in anything else.

Women participated in temple worship (Ezra 2:65).

Women acted as capable leaders when necessary (Judges 5:1-9).

Virtuous women are honored by God and their families (Proverbs 31:10-31). Take a look at that oppressive scripture!

“Women’s purpose in God’s eyes are to only serve man and submit to their husbands! Ephesians 5:22-24 & Romans 7:2!!! 1!!!!”



Again, it's funny how that is pulled out of context, because if you read on from the verse and even after the verse, you would see that submission is a two-way street:

Ephesians 5: 21-30
"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing[n] her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church—for we are members of his body.


Submission is a position of honor and completeness. When a wife is loved as the church is loved by Christ, submission is not difficult. Ephesians 5:24 says, “Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.” This verse is saying that the wife is to submit to her husband in everything that is right and lawful. Therefore, the wife is under no obligation to disobey the law or God in the name of submission.
A wife should submit to her husband, not because women are inferior, but because that is how God designed the marital relationship to function. Submission is not a wife’s being a “doormat” for her husband. Rather, with the help of the Holy Spirit, a wife submits to her husband, and a husband sacrificially loves his wife.

The bible states clearly that wives are not to submit to their husbands when their husbands are demanding something outside of God’s will. Titus 2:5explains this further in that wives are “to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”
Those who advocate the unscriptural practice of spanking their wives and call it “Christian” discipline are most certainly maligning the word of God, and wives have more than enough justification to refuse to participate in something so demeaning, unloving and controlling.

As Christians, we understand the dynamics at work which are totally at odds with human viewpoints and worldly “wisdom.” This word, "submit" can cause great offense when there should be none at all. Women need to be treated with understanding and respect. A husband shows his love for his wife by putting her first, and a woman shows her love by putting him first as well. A woman who resists this loving care with her husband is robbing herself of the joys of being a godly wife.

"God thinks that having sex with a woman on her period is considered unclean, and that everything a women touches while on her period is unclean! Leviticus 5: 19-27!!1!!!!"


It is important to remember the purpose of the Old Testament laws concerning blood. In the sacrificial system, blood was sacred (Leviticus 17:11). A woman’s “uncleanness” during her period was symbolic of the value placed on blood. As a result, contact with a woman who was having her period was forbidden.
Off of religious terms, there was a VERY high need of hygienic practice in the desert. Especially when it came to sex. Many medical experts will tell you how important this would be.

Christians today are not under the Old Testament ceremonial law (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:24-26; Ephesians 2:15</b>). There no longer is a sacrificial system because Jesus’ blood sacrifice paid the penalty for sins once and for all. The Levitical ceremonial laws do not apply today. There is no biblical reason why a married couple cannot have sex during the wife’s period. Some doctors do not recommend it from a medical perspective, but there are no proven “dangers” of having sexual intercourse during a woman’s period. Usually women have no desire to have sexual relations during their period, so that is definitely another thing to consider. Basically, this issue must be decided by a husband and wife in the spirit of “mutual consent”.

Do not be confused in mistaking Man’s actions for God’s actions. The Bible describes culture such a Rome treating women no more than property, but that does not mean God approves of that action.
The Bible records all kinds of sin: slavery and bondage and the failures of its greatest heroes.
The charge of sexism in the Bible is based upon a lack of knowledge of Scripture.
It is also very important to understand that the Bible’s ascribing different roles to men and women does not constitute sexism. The Bible makes it abundantly clear that God expects men to take the leadership role in the church and the home.
Does this make women inferior? Absolutely not.
Does this mean women are less intelligent, less capable, or viewed as less in God’s eyes?
Absolutely not!
What it means is that in our sin-stained world, there has to be structure and authority. God has instituted the roles of authority for our good. Sexism is the abuse of these roles, not the existence of these roles.

If there is anything I am missing, I will include it here!!!!

Other Stamps For You!:


EDIT: LOL, guys, I am not saying I'm anti-feminist. I'm saying that I don't approve of feminism when it's ONLY based on arrogance and unsatisfactions, which women HAVE been doing since the beginning of the 90's I think, while trying to attack the Bible and not look into the study.
