In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Couldn't be said better!!Women need to realize, before they ever have children, that we've been fed a line of feminist claptrap about the role of the mother.The mother IS NOT the most important person in a child's life. She DOES NOT shape their character or support them. That role belongs to the father alone. The mother's only purpose is to serve as a life support system during the early years, and as the father's "eyes and ears and hands" when he must be absent to earn a living. She is to function, wholly and only, as an extension of his will. She should be able to think for herself-- but only according to his wishes and values, NOT according to anything SHE HERSELF believes to be correct if it is not in perfect accord with the father's will. Knowing that, I cannot understand why in the name of God women choose men to whom they cannot happily, wholeheartedly, and utterly submit. I can only assume it's because they have been brainwashed into believing that they have "intrinsic value," that they should be creatures independent from the will of their parents as children and from the will of their husbands as adults.I think we need to go back to beating our little girls, possibly daily, for every act of will or defiance. It would be emasculating to strike a young boy, of course, but I truly wonder if it would not be instrumental in teaching little girls to accept the ONLY Godly role a woman can occupy.
I do not know who hurt you , but just because someone was a dysfunctional "Christian " does not mean that of course the total opposite is the only way . I have never heard a good Christian teach any of this , just because you have ,does not make Christianity wrong. Or Motherhood an abnormal desire. Karen Jones
Surely this is irony?
Ruth - you are too hard on women and too easy on the men. Men (husbands and fathers) have a complimentary set of duties and obligation towards their wives & children, daughters-in-law, grandkids, and so on. Further, sometimes young (and older) boys can need physical discipline from their mothers and fathers. AND, there are Godly roles for women aside from mother and wife. These include the roles of maiden aunties, childless aunties, honorary aunties, nurses, teachers, and many more. The same can be said for men.Hangtown Frank
Oh please.Just too cool for the room, are ya?LOL!A. McSp
Oh, dear.I know where this attitude comes from. I've spent a lot of time and energy fighting with it.This is the "twisted Biblical roles of women" thing. It's all over the Internet. You find it if you go past the first page Googling "submissive wives." You find it if you spend too much time researching "Red Pill Men." You find it if you spend too much time hanging around devotees of the Gothard Institute (usually ones with not a whole lot of brains, who don't like their followers to think too much). Honey, it's not like that. I get where you're coming from, but it's not like that. I know on the outside it makes life look perfect. The girls behave perfectly, and the house is perfect, and you and your husband never fight. You can parrot all the right chapters and verses in church, you have them stuck up by your mirror, and even though it's really, really hard, it feels GOOD, because you're working for the Lord and that pain is Satan leaving your body.I've heard it all. I've told all of it to myself. BTDT, if my therapist is right and I do have PTSD, that's probably where it came from.Look at what's going on in your heart. All the times you kick the dog, or lash out at "the Godless," or really truly atavistically enjoy slaughtering an animal, or whatever that thing you do that you don't want anyone to see is. It's NOT good fruit. Satan's favorite lie is to twist Scripture. Look in the mirror. If your smile looks like perfectly bleached porcelain and your eyes look like shards of glass, you need to rethink this. Message me. We can talk.
Your post was very compassionate, insightful... And downright scary. Yes, I had to google to see what you were talking about. Oh my! I'm basically speechless. Thank you for reaching out to her- hope she (and others) find healing... Blessings to you and her.
Four of every 10 American children are born to unwed mothers. Mothers murdered over 388,000 unborn children in just the first 5 months of 2016. All of this was not only protected but subsidized by government. We were forced to pay for this evil with literally a gun held to our heads.Such is the fruit of a spiritually blind (or blinded!) nation. Ridiculous you say? Ask yourself, ‘Which would be more proud of America, God or Satan?’Montana Guy
Really well done! Printing out for my girls!
This should be printed and each and every 15 year old girl in the USA should have to not only read it but put it to memory. Most of it my daughters have listened to their whole lives.So well said.
