[continued from my previous post here]
The process of 'Naming Self' as believed by the Feminists, as it can be seen in the previous post, is basically to define women autonomously from men. Through focusing on certain inequalities found in society at that time, they decided that they would instead rebel and create their own reality apart from who they think is the offender, men.
In this post, I would summarize the arguments put forward by Kassian herself against the entire idea of Naming itself, which would thus undercuts most of Feminism at its core.
Before starting, I would like to point out that these blind feminists seem to forget that men do define themselves with respect to women. After all, we all have mothers, some of us have sisters, and most of us have or will have wives, so pitting one half of the human race against another due to the presence of bitterness in their lives seem a very poor excuse for these women to destroy societal norms and God-ordained institutions through their rebellious ways.
Anyway, with regards to women's right (and in fact anyone's right) to name anything, here is what Kassian says about the matter:
... the basic premise of feminism as the self-appointed right to name the self, the world, and God. To this basic premise, Christians must say "no". It is not our right to names ourselves, the world, and the Creator. Rather, it is God's right to name Himself, the world, and the people He has created. God provides the only reliable measures for a true interpretation of reality. It is from Him — not psychology, sociology, anthropology or any other human science — that we gave a proper framework for understanding ourselves, our world, and God Himself. If we look to ourselves for the framework, as feminism does, we will undoubtedly distort the pattern.
We must begin by letting God name Himself. We can then move on to discover how God has ordered and names His creation and finally us — His people. (PDF p. 243)
Kassian then follows through by showing through Scripture that God has named Himself, He has named the world, and He has named men and women. To all this, I totally concur. This basic premise of Feminism, that women have the right to name themselves, is thus wrong, for BOTH men and women. Neither have a right to name anything except what God has given us to name. Just because men have rebelled and created their own reality apart from God before doesn't give women the right to do the same. For these women and feminist who call themselves 'enlightened', they sure do act like those whom the apostle mentioned in passages like Rom. 1:22-23.
In the next installment, let us look at the main factor facilitating the rise of feminism within conservative evangelical churches, followed by the proof-texts these so-called 'biblical feminists' muster to try to prove their egalitarian position.
