So-called "Christian Feminism"

Believe it or not, there are people who call themselves "Christian Feminists" who want to see what they call "equality" in the church. "Equality" to them means a rebellion against what God has revealed in his Word about right order. They feel that the fact that men are given a position of authority over them means that what women are called to do is somehow less important, and so they rebel against God and take roles in the church and the family which God never intended them to have.

The fact is that the Bible is full of what one could call "ant-feminist." Some women may view this as "oppressive," but they forget that God loves them and He knows how He made them.

Passages that may be considered by some to be against feminism:
1_Corinthians 11:2-16
Ephesians 5:22-24
Colossians 3:18
1_Timothy 2:9-15
1_Peter 3:1-6
