Feminism in the Church – The Influence of Postmodernism by Steve Golden

Posted By on April 3, 2013

Does history hold a bias against women? Members of the radical feminist movement seem to think so. Radical feminism has had incredibly destructive effects on marriage and the family—and its influence has also been felt on the church. Evangelical feminism teaches an egalitarian view of marriage and roles in the church, to the point where passages that clearly teach male headship are reinterpreted, explained away, or ignored altogether. As a result, many men are abdicating or being forced out of their God-given roles as heads of their households and as leaders in the church. The negative effects of this kind of postmodern thinking have led to serious attacks on the authority of God’s Word.

    “While Bilezikian’s claim may sound plausible, the textual evidence simply does not support it”

    Actually, the text does nothing BUT support the fact that God uses the same word tod escribe Himself as helper that is used for Eve. Golden’s only rebuttal is to claim that “the text does not support it”, with no examples; in fact, the text does. Furthermore, the Bible NEVER either calls the husband leader or asks him to lead his wife. He is not the prophet, priest and king some have amazingly called him. Lastly, it’s still cute when people claim that women are “cursed” with the desire to usurp their husband’s “authority”. In Genesis, in fact, only two things were cursed: the animals and the ground. Everything else described was to be a consequence of the fall, not a curse from God.

    Well, of course there are good men, but there are also bad men. Also in church, there are bad men. Men who phissically and mentally abuse their wifes and kids. Who spent all the family income on them selves, or church for that matter, so that wife and kids donot have clothes or food…
    Men who are never at home, either away with friends, or yes, always in the curch..and such abandoning the scriptures jobs at home, which a man has also.

    And if the wife seeks help from the vicar/pastor all that is said :”he is the head, you should obey”
    i have seen families go bankrupt, because woman didnot stand up, i have seen children been placed under childcare, because woman didnot stand up, and i have seen woman being death and still walking because no one helps her..

    Now an INTELLEGENT wife/pastor/vicar/ HUMAN knows that a mens headship is not without limits. The bible gives quite a few. And it is a pitty we never hear them. I have no time to look the scripture passages up but: a man may not ause his wife, he must love her like christ loves his church.
    He must teach his children (which is impossible if you are never home)
    If a man does not take care of his familiy (financially or otherwise) he has forsaken his faith
    and
    from the story of abigail we can learn that if a man makes a desission that can ruin the family, a wife can go against the husbands will.

    just to name a few.

    and yes Sarah called her man Lord…..she also said to get rid of ismael and his mother…and even though Abraham didnot wanted this, God himselve said she was right.

    So yes, submit to your husband. Obey him, but if he does something that goes against the bible donot obey him…we must obey him like the Lord. And He never will ask you to do anything that goes against his word.

    I still don’t get WHY on earth Peter mentioned Sarah calling her darn husband that; NO ONE I know, complimentarian or otherwise, calls their husbands that.

  4. So yes, submit to your husband. Obey him, but if he does something that goes against the bible donot obey him…we must obey him like the Lord. And He never will ask you to do anything that goes against his word.

    And that’s exactly what we believe at LAF, Iris. No one here has ever upheld a vision of male leadership that is totalitarian and without qualification. In fact, check out “The Woman’s Place,” which addresses this very issue (even down to Abraham and Sarah).
