Why I’ll Let a Man Open the Door For Me

It’s a sad day when a woman refuses to allow a man to open the door for her.

I enjoy being treated differently by men because I am different from them.

Holding the door open is an act of service, a nod of respect, and a show of honor. The woman who deems it offensive has insecurity issues: she’s insecure in her body, which happens to be female, so she recoils at a reminder of that fact, even a typically pleasant one. The man who is opening the door has no intentions of belittling her or bullying her; he considers it polite because it’s been an age-old gesture created to display just that: politeness. Why were men taught this? Because they were told that women should be recognized and honored for who they are.

A man opening the door for you is also saying, “Let me help you, not because you can’t yourself, but because I want the privilege of doing it for you.” Now God forbid a man helps a woman. I wonder how the feminist would act if she tried to help a man and he told her, “Don’t, I don’t need your help.” She’d cuss him out, toss a drink in his face or slam her hand across it.

A few decades ago, what our older—often wiser—generation deemed as polite, our younger—statistically more “mentally ill”—generation deems offensive and oppressive. “I am woman. Don’t dare open a door for me, that’s sexist and highly offensive. But you better cuss and talk dirty around me.”

It appears many women in my generation are blowing themselves up like balloons with this anti-man pride and racism, and it’s silly to say the least.

“She’s just like one of the guys.” Uh, no thanks. I’m not a man so I don’t want to be treated like one. (Click to Tweet)

Lost in the Pro-Choice Sea

Now let’s touch on abortion, lauded as the ultimate human right for a woman. “It’s my body! You men better not tell me what to do with it!”

Correction: it is not just your body; there’s a second body living within you that belongs to someone else.

Now how about that apartment you’re leasing or that house you got a loan from the bank for: Technically, that home isn’t yours, it’s the lessor’s or the bank’s. So if they decide you are an unwanted inconvenience, they should be able to enter “your” home with a metal clamp and tear off all of your limbs and then rip your head from your shoulders and throw your remains in the trash outside, or better yet, sell them and earn some profit. It should be their ultimate right and what if they began fighting passionately for it? Would you hope someone defends you, or would you agree and let them pursue the right to murder their tenants?

Ah women, we once prided ourselves in building up the very men who would work hard to make a living in order to support us and a family because we were worthy enough to sweat and labor for, and what we have to offer—children and a safe nurturing place to call home—were worth toiling for.

Now, we pride ourselves in lewdness and murdering the very children that we alone are special enough to create and sustain from within. Instead of building up that next generation, we want people to help pay for their annihilation.

That’s not what it inherently and naturally means to be a woman, for what thousands of years women innately knew about themselves and embraced. In fact, this new pride is completely opposing to what it means to be a woman.

I am a woman. I cannot change the fact that I was born into a body designed to create and sustain human life. I cannot deny the pain I felt when my body failed to produce that life and the fear that I would never be able to perform and enjoy that kind of miracle. I cannot help but help, to support, to encourage and teach those around me to fight for what’s right, both female and male. It’s engrained in my natural design and these roles I play are crucial. They are so infinitely important that no one would exist if my incredible female body didn’t do what it’s been doing for millenniums. It is because of this wonderful body that there is life on this earth.

So no, I will not deny who I am and fight to destroy my identity as a woman and destroy the next generation with it; to create less and less life. Ha, can you imagine if every woman decided to stop making children? Hello extinction.

Rather, I will enjoy when a man chooses to open the door for me because he sees me, he knows I’m different from him, and he honors my womanhood. I’ll smile at him and say, “Thank you.”

Why I Don’t Think Women Should Be Pastors

The bible is clear sisters: We are not to teach or have authority over men. Being a prophetess is not the same as being a pastor or teacher. They are three different gifts. Women are taught in scripture to teach women, “for Adam was created first, and Eve was the one who was deceived.”

And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. (‭I Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭12-14‬)

People who say otherwise are definitely twisting scripture and trying to make it seem like it was only for that period of time (which Paul even addresses immediately after saying women should keep quiet in the church when he says: “Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached? If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord (I Corinthians‬ ‭14‬:‭36-37‬).

If it were true that Paul was only speaking to those in that time, we can say the same exact thing for ALL of scripture because it was all written thousands of years ago!

Just because a woman cannot teach or have authority over a man does not mean she is not equal to him in God’s eyes. This not being equal because of differences is a mindset of feminism. They think equality means being able to do every function a man can do. But what this difference in roles means is just that: a difference in roles, not value.

Not having the same functions in the church does not mean we are not equal. Then we can say the pastor is more important than the prophet, or the elder is more important than the teacher and thus, we are being impartial as James says, showing favoritism when God does not have favorites.

There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all … For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body— whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? … And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another … Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? (‭I Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭4-7, 12-19, 21-25, 29-30‬)

The scripture makes it clear that even the seemingly less significant members and functions of the church are significant and equally important to God. And a woman’s role IS significant. We are helpers, supporters. But if we were supposed to head and lead the church, why did Christ only have twelve MEN as His Apostles? He had women who followed Him and “supported Him” financially. But they were not the ones who He chose to head the church. Also, every time Paul wrote concerning the qualifications of elders and deacons (the leaders in the church), they had to be men who were faithfully married to one wife, managing their households well. He never mentions women.

This is true equality: seeing the value in our different roles, what we each bring to the table for the other’s benefit, and rejoicing in our God-given differences, esteeming no one higher than another. In fact, I think many churches treat the head pastor with partiality and as if he’s above everyone else rather than a fellow brother, which eventually aids in his downfall. But that’s for another blog at another time.

We see the result of a woman taking authority over a man and leading him: Eve had good intentions but led her husband into sin! The bible thus warns women not to do what Eve did but to be submissive and let men lead while we support.

If you’re struggling with this simple truth, I ask you to really humble yourself and pray. Have the mindset that if this is indeed God’s will, you will trust that He is good and has good reason for it and that He loves you all the same. I pray you are not offended by His truth, but transformed by it in the name of Yeshua.

Love,

I Am Woman. I Don’t Use My Body For Power. I Use Something Else.

O, precious sisters, please pray for our country. I just read an article on 45 communist goals to overthrow America and ladies, they are totally accomplishing them. Some of them were discredit the family as an institution, encourage promiscuity and easy divorce, present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy”, undermine the bible, exalt intellectualism, get prayer out of schools, break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV, the list goes on and we totally see these things dominating our culture.

Pray for my generation, Millenials, especially, because many of us are falling prey to these things.

And lastly, pray for me and all of us sisters, that we stand firm in holiness and sanctification, setting the example, not taking part in the corruption of this world, but shining the beautiful and pure light of Christ to the lost, calling them out of the darkness and into a right relationship with the Holy Father.

I pray none of us compromises our morality and that if we have been, we repent. A sister in Christ told me once, “God delights in redeeming our mistakes.” He is O so merciful. It doesn’t matter how far off you are from the holiness of God, He can forgive, cleanse, and restore you. Run into His loving arms while they’re still open, and change your mind about your sin. Hate evil and cling to what is Good–Jesus. You can cry out to Him even now, and He will hear those who are sincere.

“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”-Luke 18:10-14

Humble yourself before Christ, and He will raise you out of the ashes and turn you into something truly beautiful.

Time is running short, and we do not want to be enemies of our loving Savior. We want to be His representatives, not these evil communist’s representatives.

His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. 4 By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires.-1 Peter 1:3-4

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, certain that God is appealing through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God.-2 Corinthians 5:20

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. 7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. 8 Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.-1 Thessalonians 4:3-8

Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.-James 1:27

May each of you princesses who follow this blog be the example of a godly woman and make disciples who “walk worthily” of the Lord like the Bible commands us to do. I love you and pray for you daily.

Abortions Are So Much Fun

I don’t see a problem with women desiring equal voting rights.

I have some quibbles with women desiring to be in the military though. I don’t think fighting in the military should be a right as much as it is a test of skill and strength because you need both in order to effectively protect the nation. The physical grit it takes to be a solider is serious and yes, between two healthy humans, men are physically stronger than women. Not only that, but women can be targeted as sex slaves and become rape victims if they’re captured by the enemy where as most of them just want to kill their male adversaries. But throw a woman their way and they might just abuse her sexually before killing her. I don’t know about you, but there is naturally something more gentle and nurturing in a woman than in a man. Therefore, when men die for their country, it’s just more acceptable than a woman dying so violently, putting herself in harm’s way on the battle field rather than using her nurturing gifts to take care of someone at home.

I especially take issue with women having the “right” to murder their children. Americans do not have the right to murder anyone outside of the womb. It is not a right, but a crime. Yet for some reason, since the baby is so small and not visible on the outside, it’s socially acceptable to dismember them and throw their remains in the garbage? Let any mother decide to chop up her child after birth and she’ll face life in prison or the death sentence, but have a “doctor” do the same exact thing to a smaller child in her womb and it should be legal. There is no doubt that abortions are committed after the living child has a heartbeat and often times after his arms and legs have already begun to grow yet because this living baby isn’t completely grown, it’s okay to dice him to pieces? I’ve seen an ultrasound video of a baby getting aborted. It was horrific. His heartbeat rose incredibly, and he was literally moving away from the steel sticks trying to rip him to death, then little by little, you see the baby’s limbs getting torn apart, and then finally, his dismembered head is floating in the midst of his remains.

This is what abortion is: the cruel killing of a life. If it’s not yanking the baby to bits, its utilizing the abortion pill that Planned Parenthood deceitfully calls a “medicine” that “ends an early pregnancy.” They are very minimal in their explanation of how this pill works, but this is what it really does to your unborn child when he or she is 9 weeks (already having his or her essential body parts, organs, muscles, and nerves which means baby can now feel any pain administered to him):

Mifepristone works against [progesterone, the pregnancy hormone]. It breaks down and then destroys the surroundings the baby has established in his mother’s womb, and eventually destroys the baby as well. The chemical cuts off nourishment to the preborn child, who starves to death inside his mother’s womb. After mifepristone has killed the tiny boy or girl through starvation, this second chemical [misoprostol] is designed to push the dead baby out of the mother’s womb.

Or they suck your baby out of you.

How can this barbaric act be a woman’s right? After reading this and seeing these images, do you believe killing an unborn child should still be a choice?

Being A Man Is Not Wrong, So Let’s Stop Acting Like It Is

Manliness and testosterone are not bad things. Too often does our society, our media-culture delineate and degrade men for simply being men. Their natural, God-woven design is as special and wonderful as a woman’s God-woven design.

Greed, control, and abuse are not byproducts of testosterone. I know a man who has never once raised his voice at his wife. His wife had this to say about him:

What’s on my mind? My incredible husband is on my mind. He is so good to me and loves me with a tender, fierce love. Daily he showers me with praise and tells me I’m beautiful. He’s so persistent that he actually has me believing him. Ha!Ha!
This may sound unbelievable, but *believe* me when I say that he has never once raised his voice at me or uttered an unkind word to me. I can’t recall one time when he’s been angry at me, and that includes (almost) 34 years of marriage!
Yep, he’s definitely a keeper! I love that man!!!

So being a man is not wrong or bad. I thank God for men. We women need them as much as they need us. Each sex has its own God-given niches and traits that benefit the other and can cause an amazing team and bring about the most beautiful outcomes such as:

1.) Oneness in marriage

From the beginning, God created a sacred covenant specific and exclusive to these opposite sexes and said of them:

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (‭Genesis‬ ‭2‬:‭24‬ KJV)

In God’s design, only can a man and woman join themselves together in marriage and become one. This is a beautiful and holy covenant. It is honorable and powerful when a man and woman are devoted to living for God. They experience this powerful, supernatural oneness that brings about true love displayed in sacrificial service, nurturing support, protection, respect, honor, and trust.

2.) Children

Only a man and woman can come together and produce life. This is a wondrous phenomenon that bonds a loving couple so deeply and intensifies their capacity or understanding of love. Man and woman create the most precious earthly entity in the universe: a human life. This incredible production of life is again, God-ordained for the man and woman:

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply …” (Genesis‬ ‭1‬:‭28‬ KJV)

“Didn’t the One God make us with a remnant of His life-breath? And what does the One seek? A godly offspring.” (Malachi 2:15)

“Sons are indeed a heritage from the LORD, children, a reward.” (Psalm 127:3

And let us not forget the most amazing of all:

3.) Together, both man and woman represent the likeness of God

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (‭Genesis‬ ‭1‬:‭26‬ KJV)

A woman alone does not display the fullness of God’s likeness, but alongside man, the two reveal what God is like. Masculine and feminine in ways, parts of God’s imprint are on both man and woman. The man contains the strong, protective, and providing nature of God, whereas the woman has the nurturing, gentle, and helpful nature of God. When both man and woman are honored for what they are: prized creations of God chosen to manifest His nature on earth, to be His offspring, beautiful and miraculous things happen.

As Christians, may we always remember the command to honor one another, and understand we are made from God, highly cared for by Him and entrusted with powerful and supernatural responsibilities and privileges. Thus, we must not be bitter toward one another, but truly reverent in the way we treat each other. God does punish us for dishonoring His creation and the commands He laid out for us regarding one another. May we fear and love Him, and love what He has accomplished in both man and woman.

“Women Keep Quiet In Church Meetings”-The Bible

Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church. Or did the word of God come originally from you? Or was it you only that it reached? If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. (I Corinthians 14:34-37)

“Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence.” (I Timothy 2:11, 12)

This one may be a tough pill to swallow, especially in the feministic society we now live in, but I have a few thoughts as to why these verses were inspired by the Holy Spirit.

1.) Adam wasn’t deceived, Eve was.

“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.” (I Timothy 2:14)

We women are not only physically the weaker of the two genders, but I believe our hearts are more vulnerable. I think this because we are naturally more emotional than men, and our emotions often influence our words and decisions, whereas men tend to detach their emotions from their choices so their thoughts are clearer. Emotions often fog our judgement, hence, Eve being deceived.

Even as Christian women we tend to speak from emotion, or just for the sake of speaking since we like talking, and thus, our words aren’t always Spirit-led. So as a safety precaution to all the hearers, God thought it best to have women be quiet in public church gatherings. Notice, there are no exclusions of women praying or worshipping. I think this command of silence is for when a teaching is in progress.

2.) Men have the role of leading, women have the role of supporting.

“And the Lord God said, “ It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” (Genesis 2:18)

There’s this curse placed upon us women, and we see it manifested in its ugliest form by feminists. This is the curse:

“Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.” (Genesis 3:16)

Men will rule over us, period. This causes serious strife between the unsaved woman and men. She is disrespectful, disobedient, wants to do everything the man can do and more. She wants to be independent of men who seem to have the upper-hand, and she will fight until she feels she has finally subdued what is now her male opponent, rather than her male counterpart. Not to say that the unsaved man is faultless, because many times the non-Christian man does abuse his rule and aids in stirring up this battle of the sexes, and thus our current society. But in Christ, this curse is not a curse. It is a beautiful picture of His relationship with us, the church.

In Christ this is the way the husband is called to lead, and the holy, pure picture marriage is to represent:

“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. (Ephesians 5:22-33)

Even saved women must have their minds renewed from all the feminist conditioning our culture has been propagating for centuries. It’s a war of the mind. We need to ask God to break down the strongholds that we might submit to and support our husbands with all respect, as we are commanded by God to do.

Our culture says compete with men, God says help your husband.

Our culture says beat men, God says submit to your husband.

Our culture says speak out and against men, God says respect men.

Our culture says, “wives, get career and provide for your family,” God says the husband is the provider.

Our culture says, “women, kill your children, and divorce your husbands,” God says, “Love your husbands and your children.”

Who will you listen to? Who will you obey?

I choose to obey Christ. I can testify to how beautiful and enjoyable marriage becomes when you submit to God’s way of doing it and reject the destructive ways of the world.

Feminists think they’re fighting for freedom, but really they are enslaved to their own selfishness. But whom Christ has set free, is free indeed.

Dear feminists: The Bible Loves You More Than You Do

The Bible highly esteems women with statements that would be shocking to the men of that age (two thousand plus years ago).

The very fact that the first witnesses of Christ’s resurrection were women is extremely telling. If the New Testament gospel accounts were contrived, why in the blazes would the male writers coin women as the primary witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection when in that time, women’s testimonies weren’t even valid in court?

Here’s just another example of upholding women when Jesus rebuked His disciples for frowning upon the noble actions made by a woman:

While Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon, a man who had a serious skin disease, a woman approached Him with an alabaster jar of very expensive fragrant oil. She poured it on His head as He was reclining at the table. When the disciples saw it, they were indignant. “Why this waste? ” they asked. “This might have been sold for a great deal and given to the poor.” But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a noble thing for Me. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me. By pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she has prepared Me for burial. I assure you: Wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told in memory of her.” (Matthew 26:6-13)

Shall I continue with this most controversial Scripture penned by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the church in Galatia:

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ like a garment. There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:27, 28)

And how about when Paul warns men:

“Husbands, in the same way, live with your wives with an understanding of their weaker nature yet showing them honor as coheirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.” (1 Peter 3:7)

Or when God in the Old Testament rebukes men who claimed to follow Him:

“And this is another thing you do: you cover the Lord ’s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning, because He no longer respects your offerings or receives them gladly from your hands. Yet you ask, “For what reason? ” Because the Lord has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have acted treacherously against her, though she was your marriage partner and your wife by covenant. Didn’t the one God make us with a remnant of His life-breath? And what does the One seek? A godly offspring. So watch yourselves carefully, and do not act treacherously against the wife of your youth. “If he hates and divorces his wife, ” says the Lord God of Israel, “he covers his garment with injustice,” says the Lord of Hosts. Therefore, watch yourselves carefully, and do not act treacherously.” (Malachi 2:13-16)

I can quote dozens more, but I encourage you to seek the Scriptures yourself, to delve into the Bible and discover just how precious women are to God.

May His love heal your heart, and His tenderness mend your brokenness. He is waiting for you.
