Rebellious Harlots Of Babylon

Are you raising a rebellious harlot of Babylon or a beautiful Bride of Christ?  The feminist movement has been giving the message that women must become more assertive, independent, and demanding of their rights.  This is completely opposite of what God wants women to become.  It is self-seeking and goes contrary to the servant attitude of Christ.  As a result, our society is crumbling at its foundation, the home.

Look around at the teenagers today. I recall a man telling of his taking his son to his first day of junior high. Out in front were gathered a group of young girls dressed in tight short clothing and tons of makeup. He immediately turned the car around and said he wasn't going to drop his son off to a bunch of hookers.

As mothers we must be careful as we raise our daughters not to pursue worldly things and worldly appearances.Often Christian mothers are so into how their daughters look, and how they dress, that they give off the wrong messages. It is no wonder that prom night arrives and we find our Christian young ladies dressed just like the world, boobs hanging out and dresses slit up to the butt, and then we lament that it was at the all night party she lost her virginity. 

Girls are taught to be strong and aggressive taking over the roles of men and even desiring to fight on the front lines in battle. They have been taught to never depend upon a man and they can even act like men: sleep around, call them on the phone and ask them out, go boldly after what they want, have a career spent all day away from home, etc.

God, on the other hand, asks women to pursue godliness. He tells us to be pure and have a gentle and quiet spirit. He wants us to dress modestly and in the King James version we are commanded to be "shamefaced" which is the opposite of bold and flirtatious.

However, it doesn't mean we don't exude the joy of the Lord. We should be joyful, warm, and cheerful. If a young man is interested in you, young women, be friendly and talk to him but not dominating the conversation or aggressively flirtatious.

Mothers, train your daughters in the ways of the Lord. Teach them how to represent Christ in all they say and do.  Encourage them to flee the ways of the world, the rebellious harlots of Babylon, and walk along the narrow path of freedom that Jesus has created for us to walk upon.  This path of righteousness springs forth with living water where they will find long lasting joy.

And behold, a woman comes to meet him,
Dressed as a harlot and cunning of heart.
 She is boisterous and rebellious,
Her feet do not remain at home.
Proverbs 7:10, 11
