4 Things Feminists Overlook

When Feminists blame Christianity for chauvinism, they miss these 4 facts.

I'm sad that governments have mistreated women many times throughout history, denying them respect, education, voting rights, property rights, etc. 

But I'm offended when progressive Christians and feminists blame these inequalities on biblical commands concerning male leadership.

1. Culture creates inequalities—not Scripture.(1)

Christians have sometimes agreed with ungodly cultural inequalities, but they didn't create them. 

Cultural feminism is a good example of this. It encourages a low view of women who work within the home. Christians might buy into that belief, but they don't get it from Scripture (Proverbs 31:10-31Titus 2:3-5).(2)

2. Scripture teaches equality.

"There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28

3. Male leadership is not about superiority.

Scripture commands male leadership in certain situations. We may not fully understand God's design, but it's about responsibility, not value.

4. Bad examples don't disqualify God's design.

We haven't given up on parenting or marriage despite the bad examples. Neither should we give up on submission due to bad examples. Scripture clearly commands husbands to be reasonable, sacrificial, and loving (Ephesians 5:22-33). 

With these truths in mind, why do progressive Christians and modern feminists so often blame Christianity? 2 Corinthians 4:4 gives us the answer:

"The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." 

Christians should be concerned when women are treated unjustly, and we should be concerned when people blame the Bible for these inequalities.

Laws, Hearts, Scripture, Murder, Excuses

5 Ridiculous Excuses used by Christians and non-Christians to justify murder of the innocent.

Bible Love Notes is committed to helping Christians see the importance of taking a stand in areas where God has called us to stand. That's why we dedicated each Wednesday in January to this important subject. We are praying that more Christians will have the courage to speak truth when the subject comes up in conversations. 

Suppose your state had no laws against murder. Would you say any of these things?

1. “We don’t need laws against murder. We need to change murderers’ hearts.” 

2. Our views on murder are religious, and we need to separate church and state.

3. “Well, I’m personally opposed to murder, but I don’t think it’s my place to tell others that they can’t murder.”

4. “If we make murder illegal, people will still do it.” 

5. “Groups that focus on the rights of the murder victim care nothing about the rights of the murderer.

I’ve never heard anyone use these excuses for the murder of born people, but I hear them used every day for the murder of unborn people. And sadly, I sometimes hear these excuses from professing Christians. 

When it comes to the murder of the unborn, Roe v. Wade forced every state in the union to allow women to murder their babies “at any time, for any reason, in any way they choose.” Imagine if we forced every state to allow people to murder born people “at any time, for any reason, in any way they choose.” (source)

If you have used any of these excuses for abortion, please repent. It's true that we need to change people's hearts (excuse #1), including changing the hearts of those who make these excuses.

We won’t win every battle in our struggle against abortion, but Christians are called to: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.” Proverbs 31:8  


๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Below are other Bible Love Notes devotions about abortion. I encourage you to read each one so you are better able to speak up for the unborn.  

Even though the word "abortion" is not found in Scripture, it is clearly addressed. God is not silent or vague when it comes to this important subject. 

 Walking, Standing, and Finally Sitting
Psalm 1 talks about the power of evil in our lives and how we can stand firm. This short devotion uses a fitting analogy to point out the reality of abortion.

Would you have supported slavery if you'd lived when it was legal? I hope not! But you can be sure of this: if you justify abortion, you would have justified slavery. If you don't agree, I challenge you to read this full devotion carefully and prayerfully. 

Manipulative Ideologies
Pro-abortion advocates call themselves "pro-choice," but this short devotion explains the way they manipulate situations, not to offer women choices but to support their agenda. Let's make sure that we avoid the world's manipulative ideologies and get our facts from God's Word. 

This 1-minute devotion describes the serious sin of abortion, offering prayer for mothers and fathers who need God's forgiveness.

 Abortion Victims
Abortion sounds so clinical, but it's a sin that victimizes both baby and mother. This short devotion explains.

Ungodly Amusement
This 1-minute devotion talks about an example of humor based on ungodly practices, things which grieve the heart of God.

The death of Judge Ginsburg is a good reminder to consider the things that characterize our lives. Nothing shared about the judge in this devotion is slandering. In fact, she was proud of each thing mentioned in this devotion. It's not a political devotion. It's merely a statement of facts viewed in light of Scripture.

This devotion is a review of a podcast put out by Phil Visher's ministry. Phil is the creator of VeggieTales, but his advice in this video is no laughing matter. I review it because it is a good example of compromising innocent lives for less important gains.

When people argue against the truth, they come up with some strange arguments. The latest pro-abortion argument is both insulting to adopted children and ridiculous. 

You can detect a false teaching when it is based on a single Old Testament law that is taken out of context and misquoted. This false teaching claims that Exodus 21:22 is God's way of telling us that abortion is no big deal.

Beware of the deceptive rhetoric used by pro-abortion activists. Realize how much it resembles rhetoric supporting slavery.

Beware of the "scare tactics" Satan uses to advance his ungodly goals. This 1-minute devotion explains.  
At age 71, I want to thank my momma for life and LIFE. Please take a moment and let me explain in this short devotion. 

Some wonderful truths about God's love for us before we even saw the light of day. 

This short devotion addresses one of many ridiculous excuses for allowing abortion. Sadly, it's an excuse sometimes used by Christians.

It's so important to understand that culture approves things that are ungodly and destructive.

Romans 1:16-32 talks about the increase in wickedness and tells us something about the unsaved world. This 1-minute devotion explains.

We must graciously and firmly correct these two excuses about abortion.

Beware of Satan's popular lies. This 1-minute devotion offers four pertinent examples, including one about abortion.

Each person makes this choice and it's a life-changing decision. In fact, it's a life-and-death decision.

This short devotion starts with the fact that doctors once thought there was no reason to wash their hands when examining multiple patients, and it shares other areas where majority opinion is deadly.

A foster-care worker explained to me why it was important to have unrestricted abortion, and what he actually did was prove that abortion only made problems worse.

This 1-minute devotion explains some facts that should put every Christian on our knees praying that God will forgive our nation and restore us to humane treatment of all people.

The Danger of Friends Who Influence Us in Negative Ways

Scripture contains an important warning about friendships. Wise Christians heed this warning. This devotion explains.

Natalie was raised in a loving, Bible-believing home. When she grew up, she married a Christian and created a similar Christ-centered atmosphere in her home.

Then, in her late thirties, Natalie met Jane in her "mom's group" at church. At first Natalie was bothered by some of Jane's beliefs about God, but she soon began wondering if her own upbringing had been too narrow-minded. Perhaps Jane was right—perhaps some of Scripture was simply men expressing cultural prejudices. Jane's Christianity was attractive to Natalie because it was more culturally acceptable and she enjoyed Jane's company.

Scripture warns us about people like Jane:

I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.Romans 16:17-18

We all have unsaved friends and family members, but our close companions should be solid believers:

“Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33

We must guard our hearts against the compromised teachings that often come from professing Christians (Proverbs 4:23).

Dear Christians, let's “be alert and of sober mind. [Our] enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.1 Peter 5:8

Colossians 2:8 Contains Both a Warning and an Explanation

Colossians 2:8 has an important and timely message for us. This 1-minute devotion explains.

Colossians 2:8 contains both a warning and an explanation of what we see in the world around us. 

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” 

The NLT puts it this way: “Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.” 

The Greek word translated “capture” in this verse means to be carried off by a “predator.” 

From the beginning, Satan has been that predator, an evil spiritual force. He deceived Eve with this opening line: “Did God really say [that]?” And he’s been asking men and women that question ever since, discrediting God’s Word and taking people captive with false teachings based on hollow, deceptive nonsense. 

“We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one” (1 John 5:19).

Let’s take special care to read, study, and trust God’s Word, testing everything by God’s truth. 

“Let no one deceive you with empty words.” Ephesians 5:6

Serious. Important. Tragic.

Some sobering truths that should put every Christian on our knees in prayer.

Each Wednesday in January our devotions address important aspects of this subject. Our prayer is that our readers will have the courage to speak God's truth with confidence.

Death penalty: Only 24 states currently allow the death penalty for convicted murderers, and only after clear evidence is given to prove their guilt. The other 26 states think the death penalty for criminals is inhumane. 

But 26 states support the death penalty for unborn babies for any and every reason. No trial is necessary. Women are encouraged (and sometimes pressured) to kill their children for any number of unnecessary reasons.(1) See Manipulative Ideologies

Shameful history: For 49 years under the ruling of Roe vs. Wade, the U.S. forced every state to allow the killing of unborn children for any reason. But the federal courts didn't/don't require that serial killers are given the death penalty, no matter how many innocent people they torture or kill.

Pro-Choice: The unborn child has no voice and no choice. Under Roe v. Wade, the states and the voters had no voice and no choice. If we believe it's "pro-choice" for our government to allow parents to kill unwanted children, then genocide is "pro-choice." In fact, it's "pro-choice" to allow serial killers to choose their victims.

We cannot believe God's Word and justify abortion:

Psalm 139:13-16: "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." 

See also: 

Note: If you have had an abortion that you regret, you are also a victim of the pro-abortion movement. I encourage you to seek godly counsel from Christians trained in post-abortion syndrome. You will find such people in pro-life organizations because pro-life organizations care about both the mother and the baby.

https://www.amazon.com/Wisdom-Life-Devotional-One-Minute-Reflections/dp/1087775760

(1) Before Roe, during Roe, and since Roe was overturned, abortion has always been allowed in every state when the life of the mother is at risk. Don't be taken in by pro-abortion lies. 

Many popular devotionals avoid unpopular subjects like abortion, sexual immorality, and personal responsibility. Wisdom for Life is different. It does not emphasize these subjects, but neither does it ignore them. The Wisdom for Life Devotional contains 100 one-minute devotions to challenge, encourage, instruct, and inspire your love for God's Word: Wisdom for Life.

Deconstructing Faith: A Fancy Name for Creating God in Man's Image

It's one thing to deconstruct a recipe but quite another thing to deconstruct faith. This devotion explains.
 
“Deconstructing” faith is a popular phrase used by “progressive Christians” who have abandoned biblical faith.

When a chef creates a “deconstructed” dessert, it means he includes all of the ingredients, but serves them separately instead of combined. 

When people “deconstruct” their faith, it means they separate different aspects of the Christian faith and decide which to reject and which to accept, reshaping and redefining God to fit a faith they falsely call “Christian.”  

Jeremiah 16:20 aptly describes this deconstruction: “Do people make their own gods? Yes, but they are not gods!”  And Galatians 1:6-9 talks about those who turn to a "different gospel—which is really no gospel at all." 

In a deconstructed dessert all ingredients are meant to be eaten. But in a deconstructed faith, important Bible truths are left on the plate. 

Genuine believers approach faith saying, “Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” Psalm 86:11 

Progressive Christians approach faith asking the question the serpent asked Eve in the Garden of Eden, “Did God really say [that]?” And like the serpent they redefine God's words and His character to fit their purposes (Genesis 3).

Paul rebuked the Corinthians for failing to recognize it: “For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.” 2 Corinthians 11:4 

It's one thing to deconstruct a recipe but quite another thing to deconstruct faith. This devotion explains.
Let's reject any doctrine that denies biblical truths.
-----------------
Below are some progressive Christian spokespeople. Click the links to read about their customized Christianity:

Redefining love for God and man.

Progressively compromising pro-life values.

A confused view of biblical womanhood.

Claiming Jesus needed to be corrected by women.

Making popular excuses for loss of faith.

Claiming that Jesus tells him which parts of Scripture are not God's Word.

Calling our God a "cosmic abuser."

Each Day He Carries Us in His Arms

Psalm 68:19 contains a wonderful truth that every believer should understand.

Have you ever shared a sad event in your life and had a friend listen with tears in her eyes? Or have you had a friend sit with you for long periods as you shared a deep sorrow, letting you know she cared and was there for you?

These moments are human expressions of the comfort we have in fellowship with Christ “who daily bears our burdens” (Psalm 68:19).

The New Living Translation says, “Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms.” 

Our Lord doesn’t simply listen to our burdens or keep a list of our burdens. He bears them. He invests Himself in them. Fully. Willingly. Lovingly. Daily. 

When we're mistreated, He does more than sympathize. He grieves. Some people think God can’t feel pain, but that’s not true. It breaks God’s heart to see people choose evil paths. (Genesis 6:6; Ephesians 4:30). 

And Jesus not only sympathizes. He empathizes. He has experienced the worst types of hatred, slander, and persecution (Hebrews 4:15-16). 

It's a blessing to have a human friend who will rejoice with us and mourn with us (Romans 12:15). But it's nothing compared to the comfort we find in our Lord, who daily bears our burdens.

๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

This devotion is similar to some I've written for my book
Wisdom for Life. Psalms and Proverbs are filled with helpful, relevant advice for us!

In addition, my book features a "For Further Thought" section after each devotion for those times when you want to dig deeper.

Two Decisions That Denied Basic Human Rights to a Specific Category of People

It's so important to understand that culture approves things which are ungodly and destructive.

Each Wednesday in January our devotions will address important aspects of abortion. Our prayer is that our readers will have the courage to speak God's truth when the subject of abortion comes up in conversations.

Missouri's "once free, always free" law would have made Dred Scott a free man instead of a slave. But in the Dred Scott Decision (1857), the Supreme Court overstepped their bounds, making law instead of interpreting it, and they denied Missouri the right to limit slavery.(1)

The Supreme Court also overstepped their bounds when they passed Roe v. Wade, denying states the right to limit abortion. The Dred Scott decision allowed slave owners to enslave black people. Roe allowed women to kill their unborn children “at any time, for any reason, in any way they choose.” (source)

Pro-abortion groups are no different than pro-slavery groups, promoting ungodly rights for one group while denying godly rights of another group. Any Christian who remained silent about slavery should have felt deeply ashamed. Any Christian who remains silent about abortion should feel deeply ashamed. 

I'm so thankful for the many believers who are speaking up for the life of the unborn and helping women with challenging pregnancies.

God clearly commands us to speak up for innocent victims and unashamedly share the scriptural view of unborn life (Proverbs 31:8-9; Luke 9:26; What Scripture Says About Abortion). 

And when God commands us to do something, He always gives us the strength to do it (Philippians 4:13; Colossians 1:9-14). See also How to Respond to Two Popular but Ungodly Statements and Sophisticated Deceptions.

---------------------------- 

(1) Dred Scott was a slave whose master moved him to a free state—a state that outlawed slavery—but his owner refused to free him. Scott appealed and in the Dred Scott Decision, the Supreme Court sided with the slave owner, denying the state law against slavery. The same was true for Roe v. Wade. The states had laws limiting the killing of the unborn, and the Supreme Court denied those state laws.

In one of their many deceptive propaganda campaigns, pro-abortion advocates have tried to claim that overturning Roe is like the Dred Scott Decision. They are saying that saving unborn babies and allowing states to limit abortion is the same as enslaving blacks and denying state laws that limited slavery. This is one of many proofs that Satan's propaganda is always absurd, neither logical nor truthful (2 Corinthians 4:4). See When Satan Blindsides the Unsaved World, They Believe Absurdities

My Heart's Desire for Myself and for My Readers

Author of the extremely popular 1-Minute Bible Love Notes Explains her purpose in writing Wisdom for Life.

Let me share a poem that is in my new book Wisdom for Life. I wrote it years ago, and it expresses my desires as an author and my prayer for those who read Wisdom for Life

A Woman of the Word 
By Gail Burton Purath 

The Bible wore her imprint 
It’s cover soft from use 
The pages rubbed and wrinkled 
The binding coming loose 

And even if this Christian 
And her Bible were apart 
She still would have it with her 
Hidden in her heart 

Oh, make me such a woman, Lord 
Who hungers to be fed 
Who cherishes a line from You 
More than her daily bread 

And when my days are over 
May it be my epitaph 
“She longed to spend more time with Him 
 And now is doing that.” 

Author of the extremely popular 1-Minute Bible Love Notes Explains her purpose in writing her online devotions and her devotional book Wisdom for Life.

I explained the difficulties that led me to start writing Bible Love Notes 
HERE. And in the eleven years I've been sharing my one-minute devotions online, I've never run ads or asked for donations.

But now I'm asking if you'll consider pre-ordering a copy of Wisdom for Life

๐Ÿ’™Why do I want Wisdom for Life to do well? First and foremost, I think it will draw readers closer to the Lord. Second, if it does well, I will have opportunities to write additional devotional books, and God has laid so many things on my heart to share!

I explained how God's hand was in the publishing of Wisdom for Life HERE. And if you want to get an idea of the content, you can read the first four devotions in Wisdom for Life on Lifeway or Amazon by clicking "look inside."

It’s a hard-cover book in a size that is uniquely convenient for putting into a large coat pocket or purse. 

Each devotion in the book takes only one minute to read just like Bible Love Notes. But when you have time, you can “dig deeper” by answering the questions and suggestions in the “For Further Thought” section following each devotion. 

Pre-Order Bonus: In addition, I wanted to give all my readers a bonus, so I wrote two Bible studies that complement and expand the truths in the devotions. No matter where you order the book, you can download these free studies by sharing your purchase info on the book's landing page: Wisdom for Life Devotional. This page also shows you where you can order the book in the U.S.

If you live in another country and you find a place to order it with local shipping, please let me know so I can pass the word on to other readers. Thanks!

How to Move Forward When a Loved One Walks Away from the Lord

This 1-minute devotion explains how we can move forward when loved one walk away from the Lord and reject us in the process.

Many people have family members who've walked away from their childhood faith in Christ. This is true for my family, so I understand how heartbreaking it is.
 
When cultures turn from God and worship man as our present culture does, family relationships suffer. This phenomenon is recorded throughout Scripture (Jeremiah 9:4-6; Micah 7:2-7; Luke 12:51-53). 

But we need to remember what God told Samuel when the people rejected his priestly leadership and demanded a king. God said, "It is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king" (1 Samuel 8:7).

People who reject the gospel often turn on those who remain faithful, just as Cain turned on Abel (1 John 3:11-13). They often justify their unbelief by criticizing family members who have faith. Satan loves to blame the faithful for the bad choices of the unfaithful, but we must not listen to his lies. Instead:

This 1-minute devotion explains how we can move forward when loved one walk away from the Lord and reject us in the process.

1. Keep praying for your loved ones - 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

2. Trust that God has plans and purposes for your life and He will somehow use your situation for good (Romans 8:28; Ephesians 2:10).

3. Continually refocus sad and discouraging thoughts on the goodness of the Lord (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Philippians 4:8).

I pray that this wisdom from God’s Word will help you as it is helping my husband and me.
