It’s really not about the sandwich. Really, its not. Feminists make their own sandwiches all the time.I have seen them. I know lots of feminists that love sandwiches. It’s really not about the sandwich. It’s about what that sandwich represents to feminists. It’s about making a sandwich, dare I say it, for a man. Because making a sandwich for a man, even if the man is their husband, well that represents big, bad, ugly Patriarchy. And we all know by observing feminists in our proximity, that Patriarchy must be put to death. That submitting to a man or even the perception of submitting to a man, can and will cause a feminist to lose their “man hating card”.
Feminist’s by their very sin nature rail against the God who created them. Their very existence is poisoned by a wrong and sinful presupposition of the nature of God and of Creation’s order. Even in the Church today, we are in a gradual drifting from biblical doctrine and towards worldly man-centered doctrine concerning the order of Creation.
The very premise of feminism was established in the Garden. God appointed man to rule over the woman in His Creation. God also informed Eve that after the Fall, She(representing all women) will seek to rule over Adam (all men). Feminism is not taking God by surprise, not at all. But in some Christian circles you would think that Feminism has always been a biblical concept. Sadly, that is because this poison has crept into the Churches. First, the liberal “churches” years ago and now we see it creeping into the conservative bible believing churches. We hear this word Complementarianism, a lot. And we think it sounds complementary to the man. But look to the history of the word, and will find that this word was a compromise, or should I say an attempt of conservative bible believing Christian theologians in the 1980’s to compromise with the feminists- the Egalitarians. The word attempted to soften and replace the word Patriarchy. You see how that works? God tells us women will try to rule over man. And not only is this playing out in the world. We see it everyday. And now we have some in the Church, men, actually conceding to the feminists in attempt to throw out God’s order in place of their own.
Where are the men? Where are those men of God that understand that compromise is not an option? That concession is compromise. That standing on God’s Word is what men do, not submit to an effeminate doctrine that seeks to dethrone God Almighty.
Do we see understand from scripture why feminists hate to make sandwiches? We sure do. Because making sandwiches for men is a biblical precept, an act of dying to self. Of putting others before themselves. They fail at loving their neighbor as you love themselves. Husbands don’t deserve to be served; they say. Women deserve to be served. Diva hood is feminism. Feminism says to men “submit to me or to the curb you go! And don’t even think about seeing your children” You see, the root of feminism is bitterness, and self-love. Serve yourself.Love yourself.
How can anyone make a sandwich for another person, albeit male, if you can’t love anyone but yourself and your own gender. The sandwich for a feminist becomes “abuse”. Abuse in that making a sandwich for a man is beneath them. And submitting them to making the sandwich causes “mental abuse”. True story. To do unselfish, and loving acts for a husband is impossible for the feminist. If her man does not jump when ordered, you can be sure all hell will break out.
Now to be fair, I have seen some feminist wives, last for even 20 years in a marriage. But when the heart is revealed, they follow their heart, that heart that is desperately wicked. And sure, folks saw it, they saw it all along. They saw the man submitting, trying to make this miserable person happy and always to no avail. Unless God breaks the heart of a feminist,(any god hating sinner) there is only misery for the man in these marriages.
If you have been poisoned by feminism the next sentence will sting. Patriarchy is the order of God’s creation. That’s right. There is no other. When we seek to “soften” and make more palatable what God has said, at that very point we are compromising His Word.
It is a sad state, that we are producing feminist women in the church and to this end calling it complementarianism. We are destroying God’s order and stamping it “good”. We, as Christians are not to attempt to “sanitize” God’s Word. And that is what is happening in the church and it is heartbreaking.
To the woman he said,
“I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing;
in pain you shall bring forth children.
Your desire shall be contrary tofu your husband,
but he shall rule over you.”
17And to Adam he said,
“Because you have listened to the voice of your wife
and have eaten of the tree
of which I commanded you,
‘You shall not eat of it,’
cursed is the ground because of you;
in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life;
18thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you;
and you shall eat the plants of the field.
19By the sweat of your face
you shall eat bread,
till you return to the ground,
for out of it you were taken;
for you are dust,
and to dust you shall return.”
So, we find in Genesis the reason Feminists won’t make sandwiches. The curse. When we are left to our own hearts we are contrary to God and to our husbands.
But God…. rich in His mercy. While we were yet sinners Christ died for His elect. He bought them with a Price. He redeems women who hate Him and all men, even their husbands. God gives new hearts and affections. Glory be to God!! There is salvation in no other.
I don’t speak of what I don’t know. On the contrary. I am a former hateful, bitter, God hating feminist. God has redeemed this lost soul and set my feet aright on His Holy Scriptures. My salvation is sure, and I am humbled and grateful.
Making a sandwich for my husband is my pleasure and a blessing. I don’t always make that sandwich with a right heart, but I thank God for His mercy on me, making me sensitive to my sin and causing me to repent of it. I thank God for giving me the strength and health to make that sandwich. I thank God for the bread, meat, tomato, and mayo for that sandwich. I thank God for the husband He gave me, to make a sandwich for. Is he perfect? Nah. But neither am I. But God put two imperfect people together in marriage, to glorify Him in all of our imperfection.
Things to think about:
- Are you a feminist?
- Feminism is not compatible with the role God has appointed for women.
- Do you make sandwiches for your husband? Do you honor your husband by serving Him?
