The Rebellious Woman and the Destruction of Society

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not placing the blame for the destruction of our society squarely on woman’s shoulders. After all, God held Adam accountable for Eve’s rebellion, did he not? However, there is a trend in society, and we see it taking place in the Church as well, that when women rebel–that is, they are removed from their God-given roles in the home, in the churches, and in society–the judgment of God is imminent.

I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. —1 Timothy 2:12

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He created night and day, land and water, vegetation, birds, sea creatures, and land animals. He then created man and woman, Adam and Eve, and placed them in the garden, known as Eden. God gave them dominion over all of his creation, but gave them one command–not to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. All was well, until, one day, the serpent deceived Eve into eating of the fruit–she rebelled against God.

Though Eve was the first to eat of the fruit, Romans chapter 5 makes it clear that God held Adam responsible for sin entering the world, and causing death (Romans 5:12-21). God created Adam first and then created Eve to be his helper (Gen 2:18). This means Adam was the head of the two, and Adam was responsible for any sin that Eve committed.

This was the beginning of feminism. Feminism has spread throughout history, especially in recent decades, like cancer. It has been largely unstoppable. Voddie Baucham talked about how society has “feminized” the office of pastor in the Church. He is absolutely correct. However, the feminization of society, the Church, and especially the pastorate is not just a matter of women usurping the role of men–but that also men, given to the notion of “toxic masculinity,” have become largely feminine themselves.

Stoked by the #metoo movement, the flames of feminism have worked to earn the backing of not only liberal progressives, but even many who would be considered conservatives. However, liberalism is actually one of many fruits of feminism. The feminine subculture seeks to liberate women from the “tyranny” of men, especially white men, by rebelling against their God-given roles in society, the home, and the Church.

The feminist movement has worked not to liberate women, however, but to enslave men to a society that is anti-male. Misogyny is seen as obscene and prurient whereas misandry is seen as virtuous.

Feminist ideology isn’t just espoused by women, it’s embraced by men too. In the wake of a recent string of sexual misconduct scandals in the evangelical Church, men such as Matt Chandler, JD Greear, Tim Keller, and many others have been “reevaluating” the role of women in the Church by redefining what it means to be complementarian.

The most recent example of this comes out of one the Southern Baptist Convention’s most prominent institutions, the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS). This past May, SEBTS graduated a woman with a degree in pastoral ministry.

Since her graduation, this lady and her husband have served as Exhibit A of feminism and rebellion in the Church. Just a few years ago, prior to her indoctrination at SEBTS, this couple would have been considered conservative and orthodox and regular supporters and attendees of conservative, Christian events like G3.

Today, she teams up with “transgenders” to mock and deride the conservatives she claims to have stood with years ago. Why such a drastic change? The god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they will not believe the truth (2 Corinthians 4:4) and one of the primary tools for blinding unbelievers today is feminism.

The issue here isn’t the women, it’s the men, like Danny Akin, who are platforming them and causing them to believe lies. We really do care about these people and fear for their souls. We hope that they will repent and truly come to Christ. But the rationally thinking biblically-minded person knows where unrepentant sin ends–destruction.

Just to be clear, God did not place women under the headship of men because they are somehow less worthy of leadership, less valuable, or less capable. God placed women under the headship of men as part of the curse of the fall of Adam and Eve. But in the New Testament, we see the role of Christian women in submission to their husbands as a blessing–to be a picture of the gospel of the Church’s relationship to Christ.

Under the Abrahamic covenant, everyone is either under the headship of Adam or the headship of Christ. That is, you’re either under the curse of the law or the grace of God. So we see that male headship is either a curse or a blessing, depending upon which side of the covenant you are under. If you are under the grace of God, male headship is a blessing proclaiming the good news to the world. But if you are in Adam, male headship is a curse–and a curse that only the salvific work of Jesus Christ can lift.

When, as a society, we try to lift this curse ourselves through the course of feminism, wokeism, or any other secular ideology apart from the saving grace of Christ, the end result will always be the destruction of that society.
