I grew up in France where the typical French romantic way is permissive of free love, extra marital affair and sexualized behavior in various public settings. Most Western cultures are obsessed with sex; the French are just more open about it. You may have noticed the French never cut out the nude or sex scenes from movies airing in theatre or on regular television. In fact they don’t cut those things out of their commercials, either. The French are famous for their topless beaches, high end fashion, culinary art, wine, perfume, etc.
France is one of the most cultured country in the world but I discovered culture is far from being synonymous with purity and holiness. Culture is in fact very much the expression of sensory pleasure, esthetic and hedonism pursuit driven by self-centered interest and selfish concern.
As a result of growing up in a social environment that consider indecent exposure to be a healthy liberation from the bondage of puritanism, I develop like most young french man, an insatiable desire for romance and sexual adventures.
A little later in my search for the truth, I was naturally drawn to embrace the earth-centered goddess spirituality that sacrilizes sex and believe sex is a channel for spiritual energy. For a frenchman, that sounded too good to be true !
This ancient Pagan doctrine believes women are the doorway to the sacred and they become goddess linking sex to spirituality and making themselves a channel for union with the “divine”. I used to like and promote this feminist view of putting a feminine face on God and believing women are privilege vessels to attain ecstatic spiritual rapture. I later realized, it is in fact just a physical rapture designed to take you out into the dark world of the astral world/second heaven.
I felt this belief was a natural transcendent expression of my adoration, admiration and respect for the women of this world. I am still holding woman in high regard and I love them dearly but the feminist vision of bringing sexuality and spirituality together as “a new paradigm spirituality” only served to justified my lust and made me feel good about satisfying my fleshy desire at the expense of God’s truth. The more I gave in to my wants, the more cravings increase. Following my insatiable lower carnal nature made me violate the natural order established by God. Deep inside, I knew I was “unclean”.
In our family of boys, we didn’t have the blessing of having a sister, so I didn’t get to be familiar with what makes a woman, I didn’t learn about the nature of women. Instead I was inclined to idealized them and suffer much disappointment in my relationship with them, due to my immature understanding of the feminine soul.
Following my capricious human nature, I had many girl friends and I was like the Jungian archetype a “Puer aeternus “ which is Latin for eternal boy. For many years my emotional life had remained at an adolescent level, coupled with too great a dependence on the nurturing of women. My own mother had been an orphan and although she took good care of me physically, she was emotionallyunavailable and since she never received true love in her adopted families, she didn’t know how to love me.
From one woman to another I had been searching for true love, never understanding in my ignorance of God’s law I was being promiscuous. As a result I experienced thepain of many broken relationships, confusion, anger and sadness.
The bible reveal Jesus created the earth, the heaven and everything manifested in creation. Jesus call God Abba, Father.
Feminist resent this male gender attribute of God but who are we to complain about God’s natural order of creation? Women were given the wonderful gift to bring children into the world, to raise them and care for them. What an awesome privilege that is. This humble but absolutely magnificent labor of love is undermined, devalued and rejected by feminist.
All men come from the womb of women, yet women came from man. In Genesis, we are told Eve was created out of Adam’s limb. …. And the man said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Genesis 2:21-24
Then in Genesis 3:20, we are told:
And the man called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
This verse reveal the gift of God to women, the meaning of the name Eve is life. Women are the mothers of all living. This revelation surely is not supporting in any way the idea that women are second class citizen.
I had a woman reader commenting on the above verse, she wrote: “..….the whole rib thing was added by some man probably because of jealousy over woman’s procreative abilities……”
Feminist are seeing the ability to create children, an unmerited gift given by God to be evidence of superiority over men. Yet they refuse the selfless sacrifice require to raise children. At the same time they want to be as powerful as men and are rejecting the traditional woman’s role clearly define by God in Scripture as mothers and home makers.
Our loving Father God invented delightful food, human affection, sexual pleasure, satisfying work, the blessing of children, spiritual insights all within the context of a loving committed relationship, a holy union sanctified by the Lord. Everything good came from Him. But we have been tempted to rebel against our God given heritage of gender role. We have believed the lies of the sexual revolution, the liberation of women and the feminist movement.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: Romans 6:12
Because of my ignorance of God’s protective boundaries, I didn’t know the truth of God’s commandment and I was left without a standard or reference point. I had no way of knowing whether I was on the right or the wrong path. Following the trend of my generation, I despised moral standard and wanted to be free from any religious inhibition. I mocked God’s truth and vilify His way. I was all for free love and instant gratification, not understanding the misery that will come from a promiscuous life style. There is no freedom for those who follow the flesh and ignore God’s truth.Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, Romans 1:22
The modern Goddess movement is a revival of the Temples of the Sacred Prostitutes in Sumeria, Mesopotamia, Egypt and in Greece.
In this ancient pagan world view, the original whore was a priestess, the conduit to the Divine, the one through whose body one entered the sacred arena and was uplifted in “divine union”. Sexuality out of the context of marriage was not perverted, but divine. In Hinduism and Buddhism, this practice is call “ Tantric sex”. Tantra is an elaborate religious philosophy embracing many Hindu gods and goddesses such as Shiva and Shakti. Its practical application is characterized by the use of ritualistic sex, sometime in group, to harness sexual energy for kundalini awakening and magical purpose.
The biblical prophets all condemned the Holy Prostitute and the worship of Asherah, Astarte, Anath and the other goddesses.
Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves: Romans 1: 24
Goddess followers despise God’s standard for holiness, they create their own and rebel against biblical values. It is the loss of truth as our moral standard. As a result we have become a society obsessed with sex, food, looks, shopping, drugs, gambling, and following cravings we can no longer control. We feel no shame, because what used to be sin is now an acceptable social behavior, a cool thing to do.
for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile passions: for their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature: Romans 1:25-26
I once experienced a very intense physical fusion with a woman I once believed to be hopelessly in love with. In reality this love was mix with a fair amount of lustful passion. This was of course before I became a reborn christian prior to my kundalini awakening ( see chapter 11-12 ). I felt such an overwhelming passionate love and perfect physical union in deep intimacy that I believed this experience was like an ecstatic tantric union. Instead of experiencing the deep loving embrace between a husband and wife, we had a very close encounter with the dark magical forces unleashed in tantra. So powerful and blissful this physical rapture was, I came very close to let myself drift away, loosing the sovereignty of my soul. Once again, similar to my Kundalini experience, the Lord intervened and prevented me from giving myself away to the realm of darkness.
Shortly after the bliss came the devastating heart breaking pain of separation. I felt dark forces ripping apart our relationship and tormenting me. It took me a full year of healing in silence and isolation, quiet introspection and prayers to recover from this supernatural experience and break up. I would like to point out that I received God’s protection only because I was ignorant of His command of not indulging in sex outside of marriage. As soon as we hear and learn of this law and we are touched by the Holy Spirit to repent, we are no longer innocent and if we don’t abide in God’s Word and obey Him, we may suffer His chastisement and not received His protection.
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more a sacrifice for sins, Hebrews 10:26
Any sin is a big deal. Even the smallest ones will separate us from God if we don’t follow His way back to peace. Unlike biblical love, lust will not wait; and obsessive lust has a way of displacing God’s kind and patient love. Sexual activity outside of the holy covenant of marriage is call fornication.
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Or know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own; for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20
The truthfulness of Pagan goddess spirituality is based on a person’s experience made of feeling and sensuous gratification. If something feels good, sounds loving, and seems empowering, it must be right. Few seekers knows God’s revelation, and heed the warning:
“The heart is deceitful above all things…. Who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
God and the bible according to feminist view is merely a patriarchal club for controlling women. According to them christian values and male authority obstruct spiritual progress. Feminist spirituality covers all of the world’s pagan religions and are against biblical monotheism, the belief in one God.
These beliefs which are an intimate part of the new world order and are promoted as part of the new world religion are shifting the foundations of our world from biblical truth to pagan myths. It is bringing a decaying culture and a loss of Godly standard. It is a downward movement, breaking the family unit, a degeneration of our human values. Here again we see the ugly head of social humanistic development and spiritual evolution looking for the perfection of man becoming God apart from God.
