Some would say feminism is about basic human rights and that it’s just a modern social movement. The truth is, the feminist movement is neither modern nor social in its origin. At its roots are ancient, highly religious elements that are rarely, if ever, mentioned.
The spirit of radical feminism is the spirit of witchcraft and rebellion, the spirit manifested in Jezebel. It is the spirit which rejects God’s lawful order and authority and tries to usurp that authority to itself, as did Eve in the Garden of Eden. Because they build much of their thinking on humanism, leaders in the feminist movement have no place for God. Gloria Steinem says of feminism that “the bottom line is that self-authority is the single most radical idea there is and there is a real hunger for putting the personal and the external back together again.” The New Age agenda of transforming society is apparent in her thinking, “The point is for people to empower themselves,” she says. She was also quoted as saying, “By the year 2,000, we will, I hope raise children to believe in human potential, not God.”
