Where's the Father?
By David J. Stewart
Have you noticed lately in TV commercials, and on TV in general, that fathers are disappearing? Increasingly, we are seeing a mother and her children, but NO DAD. Observe and you'll see. I just saw a JIFF peanut butter commercial with a mom and her two sons eating at the kitchen table... but NO DAD.
Increasingly we are seeing shows about domestic violence; but you'll rarely see a movie about a lazy, selfish, irresponsible mother (and if you do they always make her look like a victim). Why the bias? Why the hypocrisy? Why the disappearance of fathers? In a word... FEMINISM!
Feminism is a godless monster that aims to demonize fathers, and portray careless and rebellious wives as victims. According to feminist thinking... it's all the husband's fault. Surely men can't be that evil ladies. Feminism is rebellion, plain and simple. Feminism has nothing to do with a woman's rights. This is the grand illusion that feminists have created. Feminism refuses to grant God His rights, or the husband. The Bible instructs wives to OBEY their own husband... “Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing” (Ephesians 5:24). Did you read that... “in every thing.”
The Word of God and feminism are diametrically opposed. Is it any wonder why the staunchest feminists are coincidentally lesbians? Feminism's dead end is homosexuality! Tragically, many Christian women nowadays have become entangled in the spider web of feminism, and are filing for divorce. This is sinful. Listen to the words of the great man of God, and founder of the Sword of the Lord, Evangelist John R. Rice concerning the woman's role in marriage...
“Why does not the Bible limit a wife's obedience to her husband? Why does the Scripture not say, as many wish it did say, that a wife should be subject to her husband as long as he is right and true to the Bible? Or why does it not say, as Mrs. Goforth interprets it in How I Know God Answers Prayer, that a wife should be subject to her husband in all matters but spiritual matters? But that is not what the Bible commands. Rather the Bible says, 'Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord,' that is, as unto Jesus Christ, and so of course in complete submission. And again, 'Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing' (Eph. 5:22,24).”

Oh how right Dr. Rice is concerning this matter! Women are to obey their husbands, whether he is right and true to the Bible or not. This urgent Biblical truth desperately needs to be taught in our churches today, because divorce is epidemic in America!!!
Don't let the Devil remove dad from your home too. If you watch TV, start paying attention concerning what I just told you, and you will see that the father is becoming an endangered species.
