Feminism at Perkins and at SMU was very open and very blatant. I had pastors tell me that I needed to be in the ministry as opposed to being at home. And there was a call. They really did want women in the ministry in this denomination and eventually I thought maybe I was supposed to do that and I should be willing to do that. And so I began studies. When I started classes I was doing very well. I had top grades and I was learning a lot but, I was miserable. Our children were miserable. My husband was miserable. I cried all the time and I just constantly was asking, “What am I doing? What am I doing?” And one day I sat outside Perkins chapel on a bench and I was crying. People were walking by and I didn’t care. And one of my dear friends came and sat next to me and she hugged me and she said I “needed to stop this.” If I was a Christian and I was called to serve then I needed to give up my husband and I needed to give up my children. And I just knew she was wrong. But I went home and I asked my husband what was I supposed to do. And he said, “No. God doesn’t call us to a conflicting service.” And I was released and I was free. I could believe the Bible again because it was true. I am so delighted to be home and to be a homemaker and a home-keeper. I have five children, three who would not be here had the Lord not delivered us. -Kathleen Smith
Feminists tell women not to submit to a husband, to avoid having children, and that they should listen to their “inner voice” and chase a career to find true fulfillment. This twisted and irrational teaching has led to disaster for American women, leading many into a frustrating, isolated existence.
In The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women, an award-winning documentary by Colin Gunn, today’s women are called back to a life filled with joy and beauty that can only be found by following God’s Word.
This film takes its title from 16th-century reformer John Knox’s famous tract, “The First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women.” That tract was written to oppose a notorious European female tyrant who sought to stamp out biblical Christianity in Knox’s beloved Scotland. Today, we must likewise apply Knox’s biblical perspective against those who rule in the wake of his monstrous queen. That group of rulers, as Gunn’s film reveals, far surpasses the queen’s iniquities in both kind and degree.
This fascinating documentary features:
