In the battleground of contemporary Christian discourse, figures like Beth Moore and Kristin Du Mez emerge not as benign participants but as antagonists, waging a calculated campaign to hijack Christianity in service of their feminist agenda. With the assistance of effeminate men masquerading as leaders of the Evangelical Church, Beth Moore now brazenly flouts biblical mandates (1 Corinthians 14:34), trading biblical fidelity for egalitarian feminism.
Similarly, Kristin Du Mez, under the guise of academic inquiry, launches a salvo against conservative evangelicalism with her work “Jesus and John Wayne.” Her thesis—a scathing portrayal of evangelicalism as a puppet of toxic masculinity and nationalist zeal—is not just a distortion but a blatant rewriting of Christianity to fit a feminist and progressive narrative. Du Mez’s alignment with ‘woke’ ideologies, especially those dismantling traditional gender roles and Christian sexual ethics is an act of ideological subterfuge that aims to recast Christian theology in this mold.
These women are not mere outliers, they are emblematic of a concerted effort to subvert Christianity from within, replacing its foundational truths with a gospel contorted by feminist ideologies. Their efforts at remaking Christianity, and even Jesus Himself, into their own image represent not just a challenge to orthodoxy but a direct assault on the very foundation of Christian doctrine.
Let’s disentangle this web of misconception. Jesus Christ, the central figure of Christianity, undoubtedly revolutionized the way women were perceived in His time. His interactions with women were marked by dignity and respect, a radical departure from the norms of a deeply patriarchal society. Yet, to leap from this to claim Jesus as a feminist in the modern sense is to leap into a chasm of foolishness.

Modern feminism, especially in its most vocal forms, veers sharply away from the Christian understanding of equality and dignity. It wades into the waters of gender conflict, advocates for abortion rights, and promotes a brand of autonomy that is starkly at odds with Christian teachings on community, service, and humility. To suggest that Jesus, in His pure and holy mission, aligns with such a movement is an affront to the Gospel.
The core of Jesus’ message was not political liberation or social restructuring, but spiritual renewal. When He spoke to women, He spoke to their souls, offering liberation from enslavement to their own sin through personal faith in Him. The Samaritan woman at the well, Mary Magdalene, and others were drawn not to a political liberator but to a Savior who offered them a living water that quenched a deeper thirst than any social reform could address.
The ethos of modern feminism, with its undercurrents of resentment towards male authority and its unbridled celebration of self-assertion, is fundamentally at odds with the Gospel’s message of forgiveness, reconciliation, and self-sacrifice. Jesus did not come to promote a revolt against societal norms but to offer a radical transformation of the heart, one that transcends social and political structures and exposes the deadening rot within our very being.
It’s essential to recognize the intrinsic worth and dignity Jesus afforded to women within the framework of His time. However, to retroactively impose a contemporary feminist framework onto His work and teachings is not just a scholarly misstep, it’s a deliberate distortion designed to co-opt Christianity and the gospel into service of a secular ideology.
The narrative that Jesus was a feminist in the modern sense is not just flawed—it’s a misappropriation of His life and teachings. It’s a narrative that seeks to fit the square peg of secular feminism into the round hole of Christian theology, and in doing so, it perverts the gospel of redemption, grace, and and true liberation from sin and death. The true salvation that Jesus offers, to men and women alike, is far richer and more profound than any political or social movement can provide. It’s a liberation of the soul, the kind that renews, transforms, and transcends the petty divisions of our fallen world.
