To The Forgetful Man,

O’ You Forgetful man, You have turned your head. You have been misled.; you were once following the Father’s lantern who was treading your path before you. Now, you follow the stumbling path in the darkest of night. You are so cold, shivering to the bone. Your heart has slowed and face is downtrodden. Your joy has begun to leave you. You will not feel because your body will become numb…you do not feel because your heart has hardened. Have you forgotten! You have been here before, in this dark, damp forest. Do not approach, do not go any further.

O’ You Blinded Eyes, how deeply deceived you have become. O’ Forgetful Man do not go back. Do not go back to the lake which twisted and perverted your image. Into the reflection, you stared—there, stirred the self-hatred that is leading you astray from the lightened path! This unforgiving lake will freeze you; the lake will consume you. All the warmth of your world will fade away and you will become bitter. I recall, you were at its shores—this lake is alive. It called to you, tempting you. This is the birthplace of your troubles. I recall you kneeling at its shores. While kneeling, you store into its dark waters and the moonlight gave you a mirror. In the mirror, you did not see you! You saw what this world will make you! But, O’ Blinded One, do you not remember what Your Father has made you! I pray, do not enter the lake’s waters once again.

O’ You Wanderous Soul; You misguided soul. Do not enter that treacherous sea. Its waters are unforgiving, it is there the devil slumbers. It is colored in deep red. It is there your soul will become prey for the beast of the sea. They will swallow you whole and you will be only an appetizer before the great entrée. If you dare enter this body of evil, you will feel a wrath like no other. The sea is boiling and has the hottest temper. Its waves will crush you under its rage and spite. This sea is evil. Great men have fallen here, greater men have drowned by her—where tyrants were born. All the world’s lust and greed have been place deep on her floors. Do you also not know, this is where anger arose! Where bitter words flow like a river from your mouth! This where your self-hatred turn into world-hatred!

O’ You beloved child, do you not remember Him calling you by name? Do you not remember His embracing arms? Do you not remember His blood spilt for you? Do you see the light He gave you; do you not see the destination He is leading you to? Remember! Remember! Remember. Remember. Please, remember. O’ Forgetful Man remember!

Christian Women And Modern Feminism Cannot Coexist

Women who hold the truths of the Bible cannot also hold the ideas of modern feminism.

Feminism, as it is defined, is the "advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes," according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. This is NOT where the problem lies.

Eve was made from the rib of Adam, not from the foot to be below him, or the head to be above him, but the rib to stand beside him. The problem does not stand with the ideology that women and men are equal as humans, as this is a Biblical truth.

The problem lies within what feminism has become.

For Christian women, our calling is outlined directly in Titus 2. It states, "(women) are to love their husbands and children, be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands."

This seems to fly directly in the face of modern feminism, doesn't it? Working at home?! How dare you say that! Notably, this verse never says women cannot have a career outside of the home; it simply says that the home is a priority when a woman has a husband and children.

Submissive to their husbands?! That sounds like slavery!

The church is to submit to Christ's word and will, and the husband is to be the spiritual leader of his home. Similarly, the wife is ideally like the church in which she allows her husband to lead the family. It never says that a woman is a servant and can be abused by her husband.

Modern feminism teaches that women are not just similar to men, but that they should be better.

They constantly focus on what they can do that men can't, and what they can do better than men. Why is this a problem for Christian women? Men and women are meant to complement each other in their personalities and physicalities, they are not meant to try and outdo each other.

God made both man and woman to bind together and live life together, as humans are made for companionship. Modern feminism also teaches that you have every right to abort a child within you, even if it's a result of your own irresponsibilities.

Jeremiah 1:5 states, "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart..." As a Christian woman, how could you support an ideology that completely disregards the sanctity of human life?

Modern feminism attacks the core of Christian womanhood and effectively destroys the special qualities of women created by God.

We are made differently than men and that is OK. If you are a Christian woman, and you hold the truths of the Bible as law in your heart, there is absolutely no logical way that modern feminist ideologies can coexist.

"But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush, and Seba in exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life. Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west, I will gather you. I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made." - Isaiah 43:1-10
