3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
— 2 Tim 3:1-7 KJV
Christian feminists are shameless liars when it comes to Scripture. They claim to have secret knowledge of the meaning of Scripture, meanings no one could discern for 2,000 years. In the hands of a Christian feminist Paul is no longer warning that those who would corrupt the Church will take a page out of the Serpent’s playbook in Eden and focus on deceiving women as the entry point. Instead, the passage above suddenly becomes a feminist message exhorting Christian women to be kickass tough girls.
The Christian feminist in the video below starts by bragging about the time she put up her dukes in defense of feminism. Then she goes on to turn the Scripture above upside down, claiming Paul meant something no sane person would expect Timothy or the early congregations of the church to have interpreted from his words. Moreover, Paul’s words in his previous letter to Timothy offer the same warning:
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Here is a woman teaching the meaning of Paul’s second letter to Timothy, contrary to Paul’s explanation in his first letter that women are not to teach. In doing so, she provides a perfect example of why this is prohibited.
However, Christian feminists are a dime a dozen. What makes this video noteworthy is that this particular Christian feminist is a Women’s Studies professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Also, she is not only a council member of the CBMW, she was involved with its founding. In other words, this is Christian feminism with a CBMW and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary stamp of approval.
