What Does the Bible Say to Women Who Don’t Show Up?

March 8 was another attempt for the new “feminist” women’s movement to feel relevant by not showing up for work. Twisted thinking that not fulfilling their responsibilities would make them invaluable to their employers and fellow workers who had to fill the gap or do double duty while they were marching in the streets, shopping at minority or women owned stores or just hanging out at home for the day.

With each interview I heard of representatives of this liberal movement, their reasons for taking the day off ranged from not shopping at businesses owned by white men to all the reasons they didn’t like Donald Trump as president, and very few said anything about work related issues. I wrote a blog post after the women’s march the day following the Inauguration titled “Why Are Some Women like Eve . . . Still Listening to the Serpent?” With each failed attempt at relevancy, the devil is becoming bolder and more obvious in these women’s protests. The women involved seem confused, blinded, and resistant to reason and logic. All tools of the evil serpent.

These liberal feminists represent a select minority of women. The majority of women are watching from the sidelines, shaking their heads, and saying, “This is not my march. This is not my cause. These women do not represent me.”

Maybe you know some of the feminists or have some in your family or friends, and it saddens and sickens you to watch them being used as pawns by a political, satanical force that could care less about women and is only using them to create perceived chaos during President Trump’s first few months. Bill O’Reilly asked one woman “Would you be protesting if Hillary Clinton had won?” She didn’t answer. Then he asked, “Isn’t it true that you just don’t like President Trump?” Those two truths annihilate feminist’s credibility!

How do we get women entrapped by these feminists to listen to reason?

One way we train mentors to work with mentees is to ask questions and help them arrive at their own answers. I realize that many of the liberal feminists are not Christians, but sadly, they have lured some Christians, seekers, or your children. So perhaps you can use the following questions to start a discussion, and I’ll provide supportive Scriptures. I hope it helps. It helped me just writing this for you.

Questions to Consider When Discussing the Liberal Feminist Movement

  1. Who are the organizers? Did you know the current movement is lead by people like Linda Sarsour with ties to a terrorist group that supports sharia law. Other organizers and supporters of the “women’s march” and “general strike” include a half dozen Marxist professors and Black Panther supporter, Angela Davis, who fled to Cuba after guns she illegally obtained were used in a courthouse shoot-up, and Ramsea Yousef Odeh, convicted of terrorism and imprisoned in Israeli in 1970? Do these sound like people who want the best for American women?

As that old proverb says, ‘From evil people come evil deeds.’ 1 Samuel 24:13 NLT

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. 1 John 4:1-6

  1. Why protest work-related issues now? President Trump has only been in office two months and the women marched around the Trump Tower on March 8. Why not march around Obama’s home in Washington? He was president for the past eight years and didn’t rectify any of their complaints. Why didn’t they protest Obama for not doing anything about the issues rather than a president who just took office and actually signed two bills for women entrepreneurs?

In your anger do not sin. Ephesians 4:26

  1. Since sexism on the job is a justified complaint, why wasn’t there a loud protest from the liberal left or the feminist leaders when Democrat U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana made a vile and crude “joke” in a public speech in Washington regarding Kellyanne Conway? If this protest is about all women in the workplace, why didn’t one woman on the left, defend her? Did employers know women only stayed home from work for the rights of liberal left feminist women?

Vindicate me, my God, and plead my cause against an unfaithful nation. Rescue me from those who are deceitful and wicked. You are God my stronghold. Psalm 43:1

  1. What about the rights of employers and the people you serve? Were your reasons for staying off the job more important than school kids and their parents? Patients? Customers? Fellow employees? Deadlines? Products? Why are you so much more important than them?

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23

  1. Have you ever seen protestors yelling and carrying mean, vulgar, and crude signs achieve a worthwhile purpose? Is this an appropriate role model for your daughters? What would be a better way to have your voice heard?

Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Galatians 5:19-24

  1. Don’t you believe that both men and women are important to society? Hillary Clinton said to the feminists, “the future is women.” Do you believe that means without men? Is that really what you want? An emasculated society? Is that what you tell your sons, husbands, brothers, and fathers? It’s all about our daughters and us? Why would we want a world without men and why do we want to dominate men? Don’t you agree that men and women were created for partnership together? That’s not to say someday we might not have a woman president, but not just because she’s a woman. Because she’s the best person for the job. Hillary Clinton did not lose because she was a woman. Many men voted for her. She lost because clearly she was not the best candidate, as evidenced by how she has handled her loss so unprofessionally.

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

  1. Who do you think is listening to you? What purpose are you expecting to achieve? What is your focus? Do you know why you joined this feminist movement? If only to protest President Trump, all other issues lose credibility. Every interviewer, your employer, and the public see right through the motives of the organizers because President Trump did not create any of these issues.

The feminist leaders have one agenda: Chaos, disruption, and agitation! They don’t care about real issues, they don’t care about women, and they don’t care about America! Their sole purpose is to stir up women against perceived and manufactured issues, along with a few real ones, and convince emotional women to blame President Trump, as if he created all their problems.

Gullible women are falling into the trap set by the devil and the feminist movement leaders who want to destroy President Trump and America and are using deceived women to help achieve their deceptive goal.

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Ephesians 5:15 NLT

“There remains far more brutal and terrifying incarnations of actual gender persecution which we must face together, such as forced enslavement, sexual abuse and absolute repression of far too many women and girls around the globe. We must remember these women in our daily prayers and use our combined resources to help free them from such unthinkable and inhumane circumstances.” Melania Trump

 

PS: I was surprised not to receive even one story from last week’s blog. So I’m going to try again. How about a story about when you had to show strength and determination? Or a story where God gets all the glory because He helped you do something impossible. Can you share one of those with me, pretty please?

If you received this blog by email, please leave a comment here.

    Thank you for your blog on this topic. It is so true that even Christian women are blinded by feminism.
    I agree and believe prayer is the answer.

    To share about a time I had to show strength and determination was when I lost my father.
    Being a leader in the church, all eyes were on me and how I would respond.
    Trying to be strong on the outside , yet crumbling on the inside from the deepest pain I have ever felt in my life thus far….
    BUT GOD was with me every moment. I learned the meaning of His words, “The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
    He was so close, I could almost feel His breath.
    Over and over He brought up His words “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I found that I didn’t have to be strong, for when I was weak, He was strong. He filled me with the strength and determination to keep serving Him in ministry and not give up. He is FAITHFUL.

    • Janet Thompson says:

      Tracy thank you for sharing about God’s strength during your time of grief. I know God will use you to walk alongside other women during their weakest times and share with them your Source of strength, the Lord.

  2. Janet,
    Thanks for your words about how many women are truly lost when it comes to this topic. If only every one of them could read your blog. I try very hard to be an example for the younger women at my church with just dressing appropriately for services and more.

    I have so many times where the Lord favored me with strength and is still doing so as I see my brother’s body deteriorate on a weekly basis with Parkinson. I could not possibly go to him and work with him to just “toss a ball” as he sits and works hard to just “catch it”. Heartbreaking, but the grace of God fuels me on.

    • Janet Thompson says:

      Donna, being a role model is such an important part of mentoring to the next generation. I’m so sorry to hear about your brother, but bless you for showing up for him and giving God the glory!

  3. Very well said, Janet. I agree with you 100% Our prayers are so important as only the Holy Spirit can open the eyes of the blind, which is what these women are. They really are only spouting what they hear. Just this morning I read the words of the CEO of Planned Parenthood. Cecile Richards, say, “Planned Parenthood is “Proud” to provide abortion – a necessary service that’s as vital to our mission as birth control or cancer screenings.” What a terrible thing to be proud of. Her words are from the pit of hell, as she is blinded to her beliefs. We must pray for these women and find ways to share the truth, or else they have no place for eternity but hell.

    • Janet Thompson says:

      Yes another question to ask the feminist movement would be: Why aren’t you protesting all the baby girls murdered by Planned Parenthood instead of siding with them? Shouldn’t you be marching to save the lives of those precious baby girls who could grow up to be presidents, CEO’s, researchers, doctors, teachers, mothers, politicians, actresses, women . . . why are their lives not valuable to you?

    Excellent!

  5. Carolyn Kniefel says:

    I had a moment of strength beyond my normal MO when, as a school counselor, I had a child in my school who had told me that she had to go to her father’s home in another state but didn’t want to because a step brother molested her there. She had begged her Mother to not let her go but was told that the “law” said she had to go because Dad had the right to have her. The Mother had told the social worker who said their hands were tied because it was in another state. When I heard the story, I was overtaken with rightous anger. I prayed and then marched into the the Health and Welfare office. I got the same story the Mom had. To my surprise I almost shouted “What is your job? If you cannot protect this little girl from sexual abuse WHO CAN?” They stuttered around and then together we called the police. That very week the Mom and I went before a judge who stopped the visitations. God fulfilled his promice to protect when we brought this litle child to Him. PTL

    • Janet Thompson says:

      Oh Carolyn what a powerful story of the Lord providing you braveness, strength and determination to see justice done for that young girl to keep her protected. You didn’t give up or give in! We can make a difference when we show up for God, one person at a time. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

  6. Janet, oh my goodness, I’ve just read your post about the man with the 12 year-old-daughter who thought your comments made you seem unhinged. Unhinged? Who does he think he’s fooling beside himself? I’ve just spent a week with my now 16 year-old grandson and I have only one other unhinged statement to offer. Our young people are in serious trouble! So are their parents! And their younger siblings…and many of them attend church regularly, but do not hear truth.

    Deceptive lies have been taught in our public schools for at least the past forty years…maybe more. Many churches have stopped teaching about sin, the blood of our Lord Jesus, and the need for mercy and forgiveness from our Father in Heaven. But like I told my grandson just yesterday, “It does not matter whether you believe in Jesus or not…His Word is still truth…to live with Him forever, escaping the judgment of hell’s eternal fiery judgment, each one of us must admit they are sinners, humble themselves before The Righteous Creator and Sustainer of the Universe and repent and turn and walk in obedience to the Word of God and the teachings of The Lord Jesus Christ, the only way to The Father. Period. Even if you don’t agree with the truth I’m telling you…you will still stand before the Lord God Almighty and hear Him either say “Depart from Me I never knew you.” Or for those who love and obey Him, “Enter into the kingdom prepared for you.” And I reminded grandson and will remind all readers of this blog, Jesus also said, “Broad is the way that leads to destruction and many are they which go that way. Narrow is the road that leads to life, and few there be that find it.” We get to make the choice of which road…we do not get to choose the consequences. Hard words? Yes. True words? Yes. But in that day, there will be no second chances. Now is the acceptable time of salvation, and now is all each one of us has. Truth or consequences!

    • Janet Thompson says:

      Thank you DiAne for your wisdom and I pray your grandson listened carefully. God’s Word never changes and applies to every generation, which is something I fear the millennials are not being taught today. I pray that “Al” comes back to read your comment and mine here. The only reason I didn’t post his comment, is because he chose to include language that was not necessary to make the point he was making. And BTW I could have answered that point had he chosen to make it more respectfully with the blog I wrote on the topic he was addressing: http://womantowomanmentoring.com/2016/10/why-dont-christians-freely-extend-the-same-grace-we-received/.
