The other day I was sitting here watching The View. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a big fan of The View. It gets under my skin. I cringe, and I walk away from it wondering how this world has gotten this bad. But my friend is a new co-host, and so I recently started taping it, to watch what she has to say. The other day, the topic of feminism came up. They wanted to simplify the word to "having self pride." They went on to define feminism as "political, economical, and social equality of the sexes." And yes, that's the basic definition of the word.
But here's the thing, the question isn't whether or not women are equal to men. That's simple.
The Bible reminds us that men and women are equal when it says, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).
Let's start asking the tough questions: Are you willing to submit to your husband according to the will of God? Are you willing to let your husband lead your family in accordance with God's will?
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. (Ephesians 5:22-23)
One of the most beautiful friendships recorded in history was that of David and Jonathan. 1 Samuel chapter 18 tells us that that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. (v. 1)
