Hillary Wants To Change Religious Beliefs On Abortion - Ancient Gnostic Feminism

As WND reported:

More to point, she said, “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” to give women full access to “reproductive health care and safe childbirth,” ~ WND
She said it, right there. Religious beliefs and biases have to be changed (about abortion). Between her, Obama, and the liberals (even in "Christianity" like Tim Keller and Rick Warren), that IS the goal: get rid of any  anything that bears down on their conscience, especially any presence of Christianity or Scripture (via Christians, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, etc), because  this is a SPIRITUAL WAR. Let me show you something to see how feminism is tied to this spiritual war. These are excellent excerpts from John MacArthur:

The Gnostics taught there's no such thing as sin because there's no such thing as right or wrong in the human realm, therefore there's no need for a savior, there's no need for a death on the cross, there's no need for an atonement. What they needed to do to be saved was, listen to this, throw off the God of the Old Testament, this evil God, throw off the God of the New Testament with all of His laws and all of His threats and all of His so-called punishment, throw off the whole Old and the whole New Testament and free yourself from the encumbering of this subgod, this bungling creator who did what he never should have done and created a prison for us in doing it. So, you can see that the first tenet of their system was a blasphemy against God...calling God evil, bungling, ignorant....
But before I look at that, the system also included, listen to this, lies that elevated women. Ancient Gnosticism focused on women. This is what it said, for example, "Eve was a spirit endowed woman who saved Adam." You say, "Well the Bible doesn't say that." Of course the Bible doesn't say that because the Bible isn't telling you the truth.
They said, "Final salvation for the whole world from the imprisonment of matter will come through female power." And the key is, "Female self-actualization, self-realization, self- knowledge in which a woman becomes so fully in tune with herself and so well knows herself and actualizes and realizes and fulfills herself that she becomes fully divine and as she becomes divine she will rescue the rest of these lame men just like Eve fully divine rescued poor Adam."
In fact, convoluting the creation account, gnostic texts tell us that Dame Wisdom was the Heavenly Eve. There was a mystical heavenly woman named the Heavenly Eve who is the same as Dame Wisdom, she's the source of all wisdom. She entered the snake in the Garden and she taught both Adam and Eve the true way of salvation. The snake then is not called the tempter, the snake in gnostic literature is the instructor. The snake is ultimate wisdom. The snake was wiser than anybody else. The snake, it says in gnostic literature, is the redeemer because the snake is the incarnated woman who comes the Heavenly Eve and teaches the truth about self-realization which is self- fulfillment which is making yourself divine which delivers you from being encumbered by matter. They also say this, the serpent in the Garden is the true Christ, the true reflection of God.
So, they take redemptive history and stand it on its head like a satanist cross in a black mass. God is evil. The serpent in the Garden is the true Christ. Christ in the New Testament, the reflection of God, is equally evil. And He's not the true Christ because the true Christ, the true Christ's spirit is in the the Dame Wisdom.
"Though caught in matter," they say, the Gnostics, "humanity once again can become part of the universal whole by a process of self-realization." They say in the Book of Genesis, "The lack of self-realization is really the problem that man has." The Bible says that man's problem is sin--sin! And the root of his sin is his self-preoccupation, so they flip that completely around.

So the heart and core of Gnostic religion then is the "consubstantiality of self with God;" you make yourself into God. You are the only God that exists: you get in tune with yourself, you elevate yourself--self-esteem, self-knowledge, self-actualization, self-realization, self-fulfillment; whatever your self wants that's how you become God--you just give complete sway to your own self-desire. 

But let's take a look at some other things. In the gnostic system Eve dominates Adam and sexual roles are totally altered. And you can understand this because, you see, Satan wants to totally tear up God's created order. They wrote, the early Gnostics did, they wrote exalting lesbianism and advocated that the divine revealer was feminine. 
Now all of that double talk is the talk of the androgyny of Gnosticism. That means the wiping out of all sexual distinction. There are gnostic texts where God the creator is castigated by a higher feminine power and that's that Heavenly Eve called Sophia, Dame Wisdom. And God the creator, the Gnostic said, God that subgod demiurge who stupidly created everything finally learned the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. In other words, He learned to fear the feminine Sophia so that the God of the Bible is now in fear of the feminine god Sophia. The feminization then of this higher god, Wisdom, led directly to the ordination of women. The ordination of women flows out of the feminization of deity.
In the Valentinian Gnosticism, women functioned as teachers, evangelists, healers, priests, perhaps as bishops. This Movement in the church to put women into roles of spiritual leadership is simply reflective of this same kind of religious attitude.
The ideal for the Gnostic was to become sexless, a radical refusal of sexual differentiation and a complete confusion of sexual identity in God's intended role.[**See update at the end of the article]
See, this is how Satan has always tried to tear up God's moral order in the world. And attacking the family, of course, does the greatest damage. The diabolical reversal of everything is Satan's approach. Destroy God's created order, destroy the integrity of Scripture, destroy the character of God, destroy the name of Christ. And, beloved, I'm telling you this is what is behind today's Feminist Movement. This is not some whimsical deal that popped up in the twentieth century by a few women who wanted to take off the apron and buy a briefcase. This is not that. This is not something that was invented by women who wanted to abort their babies and get in to the corporate halls and the executive washrooms. This New Age thinking, that's what it's called today, is nothing but Gnosticism. New Age is a new way of talking about age-old Gnosticism. And the heart of it is that female power is the key to salvation. The goddess cult is back.
Feminist liberation releases us from God and from all His evil male values like marriage, fidelity, family, authority, morality. The serpent Eve wants to set us free and the God of the Bible is a jealous tyrant who wants to stand in her way.
So when you hear about the Methodists or the Presbyterians or whoever, the Episcopalians deciding to change the Bible and put in "she," you know that this is not some human contrivance to make ladies feel better about themselves, this is a satanic satanic as a black mass.
And, as with ancient Gnosticism, the New Age Movement today, the goal of liberation is total reversal of all God-ordained values. That's why it's so unthinkable that Christians would get sucked in to this.
Their real ideological goal because it's Satan's goal is to absolutely erase any recollection of creational structure and biblical morality. Wipe it out. And they're after it. You wonder, don't you, two generations from now whether anybody will know what biblical morality is. Oh they might be able to read the ancient Bible and see what it looked like but they certainly are going to have a hard time looking around town to find it. And here witless Christians jump on this Feminist bandwagon as if it was some harmless thing. "Well, we have a right to work and we shouldn't be confined at home...and I have a right to express fully myself," and...silly women who fall prey and silly men who do as well.
 The satanic agenda is to destroy human just rip the family to shreds and destroy marriage so that God has no means to pass righteousness from one generation to the next, right? Which was always the role of the family. There's no moral order maintained in society. There are no ethical values left. And the way you do that is sexually. You just shred all standard norms sexually so nobody knows how anybody is supposed to be related to anybody but everybody is free to do whatever they want to do and that's how they become divine.
Our society is doing exactly what I told you in Romans 1 happens to a society when God gives them over. What does it say God gave them over? And what did they do? Women with women doing things that aren't even imaginable and men with men doing things that aren't imaginable....that's what happens to a society under God's wrath. God lets them go and they're going the way of the satanic lies. Playing right into the hands of satanic lies is our own government. Working hard, aren't they? What are they working hard? Our government, the government of the United States, state of California, city of Los Angeles are doing every thing they can do to eliminate all gender differences. That is not an issue of constitutional liberty, that is an issue of satanic religion.
And that is Hillary's agenda, by the way, in case you haven't noticed. Homosexuality is the companion of Feminism because of androgyny. Homosexuality running rampant, no society can survive that, the Roman Empire didn't survive it. This entire system is going right in to the pit, tearing up God's order sexually, tearing up families, tearing up marriage, blaspheming God, blaspheming Christ, exalting the serpent. I read one book this week where a man suggested the Antichrist might be a woman if we keep going the way we're going. Satan is very successful with this. Vice President Al Gore has written a book called Earth in the Balance, Ecology and the Human Spirit. Peter Jones writes about that book, "Gore's involvement in ecology is an expression of his belief in the connectedness of all things, in the great value of all religious faiths and in his hope that ancient pagan goddess worship will help bring us planetary and personal salvation." It's inconceivable that these people call themselves Baptists. No, it's not inconceivable.
Undiscerning Christians falling victim to these hellish heresies, the destruction is not restrained by the church, the church has joined it.
There is no doubt about what a woman's role is, there's no doubt what a man's role is. Look at our text again. What has God designed for a woman? Verse 4, "To love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands that the Word of God may not be dishonored." That's very clear.
You can get in a lot of trouble by suggesting that kind of stuff. Try standing up in this culture and saying, "Women, you're commanded to love your husband and to love your children and to work at home and to be subject to your husband." You'll get screamed down. I mean, you can be in deep trouble just reading that let alone commenting on it.
