Feminist Worldly Wisdom

I’ve been reading though a book about Susan B. Anthony.  It is sorely depressing.  When reading such a book, it becomes all the more shockingly apparent how muddy and infectious the waters are in which we are swimming.   

Like Margaret Sanger, Anthony was an enemy of the Gospel of Christ.   In chapter 21, Divine Discontent she says,

“I pray every single second of my life; not on my knees but with my work.  My prayer is to lift women to equality with men.  Work and worship are one with me.  I know there is no God of the universe made happy by my getting down on my knees and calling him “great”. 

“It is plain to me now that it is not sitting under preaching that I dislike, but the fact that most of it is not of a stamp that my soul can respond to.”

Once one of her cousins sent Anthony a book of Proverbs for a birthday gift and Susan responded:

“Your little birthday present, the Book of Proverbs, came duly.  Solomon’s wise sayings, however, don’t help me very much in my work of trying to persuade men to do justice to women.  These men and their progenitors for generations back have read Solomon over and over again, and learned nothing therefrom of fair play for woman, and I fear generations to come will continue to read to as little purpose.  At any rate, I propose to peg away in accordance with my own sense of wisdom rather than Solomon’s.  All those old fellows were very good for their time, but their wisdom needs to be newly interpreted in order to apply to people of today.”  

I don’t know about you, but reading such “humanistic, wise-in-my-own-eyes” feminist propaganda makes me all the more zealous to examine, repent and abandon every humanistic reasoning my flesh has conceived as “wise” and make sure the source of wisdom I submit to comes from the only absolute sovereign Creator and King of the universe.  

Isaiah 5:21 says, “Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”
