To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work. (Titus 1:15-16)
The Feminist Who Called On God
The discussion was about the rights of women on campuses across the country and how the views of universities have limited the rights of women. One of the experts interviewed for the review was an admitted feminist who had championed the freedoms of women for a number of years in areas such as sexuality and equality. Then a most astonishing thing happened. She ended her presentation with the phrase, “God only knows.” Admittedly I am having difficulty recounting what the discussion was about and what was being said because when I heard this I went blank. Did she really say what she just said? How could a liberal feminist think God had anything to say about what she had said? It amazed me.
There is an ease with which God’s name is used in vain by many people today who have no desire to acknowledge their Creator. We look at the Ten Commandments and remember that His name should never be used in vain. Often we acquaint this with cursing or swearing and that would be a good illustration. But another way of using God’s name in vain is when a person who avows everything against the purity of the will of God with a flippant remark like this will also find themselves in judgment of the Lord.
‘God only knows’ is a valid statement made by those who believe in three things. First there is a God and He is it. No other. None. God is one and He is the Creator of the world. He is not a myth. Second, the ‘only’ part recognizes the authority of God as being absolute. Man is removed from the formula and the ‘God only’ suggests what God says is what matters not man. Third, truth comes from God. The word is truth (Jesus said that). The Bible is the word of God declaring the only truth. It cannot be changed or modified to fit the needs of a feminist society. Expression of sexual freedom is a rejection of the knowledge of God. ‘God only knows’ is exactly right. He is the only one that knows. That is my thought for the day.
