Beware of Unbiblical “Proverbs 31 Ministry”
By David J. Stewart | August 2012
Romans 3:18, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
I was researching some of the latest Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) today to keep up with what the Devil is doing. Kids are under attack today and music is one of Satan's most effective weapons. More dangerous than the music itself are the apostate ministers, feminism, spiritually dead books and the false doctrines associated with the singers. All CCM singers hide their light for Christ under a bushel, in many cases because they have no light (they aren't saved).
I ran across a women's ministry today advertised at K-LOVE's CCM website, called “PROVERBS 31 MINISTRY.” I EXPOSE K-LOVE IN THIS ARTICLE!!! So I went to visit their website. They've been corrupting women since 1992. Here are the seven stated principles that their ministry teaches women. Most aren't found in the Bible, and they left our obeying one's husband...
The Seven Principles of a Proverbs 31 Woman:
The Proverbs 31 Woman...
SOURCE: About Us | Proverbs 31 Ministries

- Shares the love of Christ by extending her hands to help the poor and opening her arms to the needy."
What a big theological mess!
First, salvation is NOT a relationship with Jesus. It is a new birth. Ye must be born again! (John 3:5).
Second, they fail to mention wifely OBEDIENCE (submission) to her own husband. Feminism mandates political correctness even amongst professed Christian women these days, otherwise face TOTAL rejection by this untoward and wicked generation of rebels against God. No woman can be a Proverbs 31 woman who doesn't OBEY her husband. Encouraging one's husband to lead is not the same as OBEYING (doing what you are told without question). Titus 2:4-5, “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”
Third, Genesis 2:18 says every wife was created to be her husband's HELP MEET. Ladies, you were not created to have your own life, pursue your own career, nor do your own thing. Career women are NOT Proverbs 31 women. The Proverbs 31 woman was a homemaker (1st Timothy 5:14-15). God wants Christian women to marry, bear children, guide the house, and stay out of trouble!!! Such living is despised nowadays. The whole notion of women enlisting in the military is unbiblical and insane. America is under malicious economic attack by the banksters. Baltimore is paying fire and police workers minimum wage. Can you imagine? Scranton is considering placing business ads on the side of fire-trucks to make money for the city. Many cities are installing red-light cameras to ticket the citizens to death. It's a tax is what it is!
When you get married, your father is no longer the authority in your life, your husband is. Until you're married, your father is in charge, I don't care if your 30-years old. You ought to honor your father and mother. This crap that a girl is an independent adult at 18 is unbiblical. Your not right with God if you dishonor your father's counsel and advise until you are married and have a husband.
Honoring your parents includes seriously taking their advice and heeding wise counsel. Once married, it is a sin to side with your father over your husband. It is a sin to side with your pastor over your husband. Your husband is your boss, like it or not. I'm not saying that a wife is a slave to be abused (as many women think the Bible teaches). The Bible teaches MUTUAL SUBMISSION. Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” The key is that the wife must submit first, and then the husband can submit to the wife. A godly husband wants to submit to his wife to make her happy; yet a godly wife will submit in those areas where they disagree and conflict.
Guaranteed there will be times when a wife disagrees with her husband and wants to do things her own way. Even if your husband is wrong, God tells you to obey him (unless it's a crime). To rebel is equivalent to the sins of witchcraft and idolatry, because you are putting your will above God's.
A husband has every right to track his wife's whereabouts, time and friends. But today's domestic abuse laws consider these things abuse. America's laws are becoming INTOLERANT of masculine authority in the marriage and home. Increasingly women are becoming little brats who need to go to prison until they learn humility, obedience and modesty. You can be assured that God is angry at a society that demonizes men for lusting, while not a word is said against whorish women who walk around hanging out naked. Women who are scantily clad are sinning. Women are so delusional. There's nothing more beautiful than a woman in a long dress; but they THINK that they're beautiful being naked in public. They're whorish, not beautiful. Beauty is skin deep. The same women that laugh at me are wearing pants. They're the one's who demand equality of authority with their husband.
You had better hope that God doesn't put me in charge when He returns, because that's exactly where you rebels will go, to prison!!! Women who have dragged their husbands through court will pay an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth for the misery they've caused. The King James Bible warns in 1st Thessalonians 4:6 that God will avenge any husband who has been defrauded (harmed in any way) by his wife. Jesus warned in Matthew 12:36 that God even holds people accountable for their words. Ecclesiastes 12:14 warns that EVERY WORK shall be brought into judgment. Proverbs 24:12 warns that God ponders every person's heart and knows our every thought. Hebrews 4:13 says nothing is hidden from God, but all things are naked and open with Him whom we have to do. Romans 12:19 promises that God will recompense every good and evil work. No one is going to get away with anything.
Shame on the women at their so-called Proverbs 31 Ministry for not teaching wifely obedience!!!
Fourth, they leave out the most important teachings from Proverbs 31—like never doing anything to hurt your husband. Proverbs 31:12, “She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” There's no worse evil than to destroy and hurt a husband by dragging him into divorce court. Any woman who has ever filed for divorce is NOT a Proverbs 31 woman. If you are remarried, you are A.W.O.L. You've already utterly failed at your life's work. Get right with God and admit that you have nothing left but broken pieces of your shipwrecked life to give God.
Furthermore, they say that a women is supposed to create a loving environment for family and friends. That's not what Proverbs 31 teaches at all. Where did they come up with this garbage? Literally, they just make this stuff up and slap a Christian label on it. There's absolutely nothing in Proverbs 31 about creating a loving environment for friends nor family. What the Bible DOES say is that the Proverbs 31 woman is RESPONSIBLE, RELIABLE, TRUSTWORTHY and her husband can SAFELY TRUST HER. Not many husbands can say that these days. I heard one man say that his wife would burn the house down if he left her alone. Another man said his wife was like an irresponsible little child.
Another man said his wife lied to him so much that he didn't believe anything she said anymore. Is that you? Are you a liar like so many men and women today? Are you quick to dial 911 every time you get really mad, so the police can muscle your uncooperative husband who doesn't like your continual laziness to clean the house, lack of romantic interest or your gossiping tongue on the phone? Why does your husband get mad at you? Is he justifiably angry? I've seen it again and again where a woman doesn't cook, doesn't clean, doesn't obey her husband, and makes his life hell on earth; and then one day he messes up and she divorces him, convincing everyone that he's the Antichrist.
Famous country singer Faron Young was married for 40-years to one woman. One day he got drunk and shot off his shotgun in the kitchen. His wife divorced him over it and was awarded $1,000 per month by the judge in alimony benefits. Faron commit suicide 10-years later—in part due to poor health, but also in part due to his wife divorcing him. He complained about all the time to his friends. She abandoned him when he needed her the most. Faron put up with her for 40-years, just like she did him, but then she leaves him and all of a sudden he's an evil person. She's no angel. She did him evil. That scenario is all too often these days. The courts crucify husbands. Is it any wonder why men are shacking up and refuse to marry? Can you blame them? Until the courts change, most men won't marry anymore. That's exactly what the monsters who've hijacked our nation want, that is, fornication and no families.
Fifth, the husband is the one whom God asks if his wife is a Proverbs 31 woman or not. You cannot call yourself a good person. Only someone else can say that (or not say that) about you. Anyone can profess to be a good person, but that doesn't make it so. It's what other people say about you that matters. It's the husband who determines whether his wife is a good wife or not. God gives Him that voice. Proverbs 31:28, “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” The husband of the Proverbs 31 woman has the final say as to whether she is good or evil. Hebrews 13:17, “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.” Will your husband, or x-husband, give a good or evil report of you? What will your husband say about you on judgment day. Will your husband recommend that God put you in prison for the evils you've done to him?
Granted, we're all forgiven in Christ and are commanded to likewise forgive (Ephesians 4:30-32); but that in no way dismisses nor excuses a person from still having to face their sins at the Judgment Seat Of Christ. The Bible says that there is no condemnation (DAMNATION) to those who are in Christ; but the Greek word for “condemned” is different in James 5:9 for the believer who sins, meaning that God will bring them into judgment for their wrongs done in the body (2nd Corinthians 5:9-11). James 5:9, “Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.” The Greek word for “grudge” means “to make in straits.” It means to make life miserable for someone else. God will bring you into judgment for it. Nothing escapes God's eyes, nothing. Matthew 10:29-30 teaches that not even a sparrow falls from the sky without God knowing about it, and likewise, not one hair on our head falls or grows without God knowing the exact number of hairs.
Sixth, the Proverbs 31 woman minds her own business and is against women preachers. The principles taught by the Proverbs 31 Ministry women are feminist because they leave our obedience for wives. You cannot be politically correct and Biblically correct. Women preachers are false prophets (all of them). Today's contemporary Christian men and women are a shallow as Ananias and Sapphira, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. There's nothing worse than a meddling woman who minds other people's problems. They cause divorces and destroy families. God hates when hypocrites get involved in other people's marriage problems and take sides. What God has put together let NO MAN put asunder! You witches out there in America who recommend, nurture and help cause a divorce are in big trouble with God. Sadly, many of those witches are pastor's wives and Christian workers.
THE GOSPEL is no where to be found, apart from which there can be no salvation (1st Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 1:16 - King James Bible). A Proverbs 31 Woman obeys the Bible's command for women to remain in silence when in the presence of men doing business.
1st Corinthians 14:34, "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law."
1st Timothy 2:11, "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection."
1st Timothy 2:12, "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence."
What part of the Bible don't you understand ladies?
Seventh, the Bible says In Proverbs 31:30 that the Proverbs 31 woman fears God. No woman who doesn't fear God can please God. Faith pleases God. Don't kid yourself ladies, you cannot be a Proverbs 31 woman unless you are obedient to your husband. Most women are like the Proverbs 7 whore, or like Jezebel in 1st Kings 21 who beared false witness and killed Naboth to steal his land for Ahab, or the slut Delilah in Judges 16 who betrayed Samson and caused his eyes to be burned out and his death. Solomon said he found women to be more bitter than death. Ecclesiastes 7:26, “And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.”
Women Need Wisdom From The Scriptures
I was listening to Alexander Scourby read the Proverbs today on CD and noticed an amazing truth at the end of the Proverbs. God gave us the practical book of Proverbs to give us wisdom. I love the book of Proverbs. Every Christian should read and ponder the meaning of the Scriptures in Proverbs on a regular basis. God tells us in Proverbs 4:7 that “Wisdom is the principles thing; therefore get wisdom.” Since wisdom is that important to God, it should also be that important to us.
I learned an amazing truth today while hearing the last two verses of the proverbs. How would the wisest writings in the world end? What would Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, say to conclude his writings? It must be important, no doubt. Would Solomon tell us to obey God and keep His Commandments? Would Solomon tell us to read the proverbs every day? What words would Solomon leave? Would he challenge us? Surely the book of Proverbs must have a spectacular end? How did Solomon, who penned the Words of the Lord, end the proverbs?
Amazingly, Solomon addresses the woman, reminding her that beauty is vain and to fear God her duty in life...
Proverbs 31:30-31, “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
I was amazed when I learned this? The book of proverbs doesn't address the man of God; but rather, the woman. The Bible exhorts the woman to fear God and not seek favor through her beauty. For the past century in America, carnally-minded women have been seeking breast-implants to gain the favor of men. Breast implants started to become mainstream in the 1950's when 50,000 surgical injections were done using silicone. The silicone caused hardening of the breasts which results in mastectomies. In 1961 the first silicone breast implant was done, and in 1964 the first saline breast implants were performed.
What a sad testimony upon a sex-crazed nation! It is because of the lewdness and sexual promiscuity of Hollywood and television that lasciviousness has become an epidemic in America. America's pornography, strip joints, television and Hollywood movies have reduced women into sex objects. The internet since the 1990's have plundered the world into gross sexual immorality, lesbianism , pedophilia and bestiality. All sexual restraint is gone in 2012!!! The U.S. Supreme Court will legalize same-sex marriages by the end of 2013.
Feminism is the rot of our nation. America is as a rotting corpse in the world today, despised and hated by many nations for the wickedness committed by our elected leaders. OUR leaders, do what they do in OUR name, and with OUR money; hence, it is OUR responsibility. We are responsible for untold calamities, tortures and massacres of millions of innocent people worldwide by our CIA and military.
Proverbs 17:23, “A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.”
Proverbs 26:28, “A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.”
Feminism is not just a word. It is a Communist agenda deliberately intended to subvert, corrupt and undermine families in America. Through subtle indoctrination utilizing women's magazines and television primarily, the Rockefeller establishment has engineered America's women.
“Those who want to destroy the family will continue to urge mothers to leave the home and 'become fulfilled in the workplace.' When the mother goes into the workplace to become 'fulfilled,' or to increase the family's income, she leaves the care of the children to others. Those who warn against such practices will continue to be scorned by the feminists and others who have a hidden agenda: they want to destroy the family.”

God doesn't do anything by chance; everything is for a reason. God could have ended the book of Proverbs with a million topics, but He chose to tell the woman to FEAR GOD and not be deceived by the vanity of beauty. American society sinfully worships the woman's body, and as a consequence so also does much of the world. Instead of praising young girls for wisdom; they are praised for having large breasts nd being “hot” and “sexy” and a “babe.” Youth today don't stand a chance spiritually in a hellish world that targets them as sex-objects at the earliest age.
Young girls need to be taught the Scriptures, and everything hinges on AUTHORITY. This wicked generation has a serious problem with obeying God-ordained masculine authority. Men are to lead the church, not women. A husband is the head of the marriage. Women who have a problem with the word “OBEY” are not right with God. Women today absolutely despise the word obey in a marriage, because they have been influenced by the evils of feminism. Sarah called Abraham, “lord.” 1st Peter 3:6, “Even as Sara OBEYED Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”
Afraid with any amazement? That's means acting like a fool when you're upset. Many women dial 911 like idiots, panicking and not thinking about the consequences of their actions. The Bible says in Proverbs 19:14 that a prudent wife is from the Lord. The Hebrew word for “prudent” means “she considers the consequences of her actions BEFORE she does something.” Many women today are darn fools. The only “rights” you have in God's eyes is to obey His Word, obey your husband and not act the fool. There are NO laws in America which require a wife to obey her husband, but there are thousands of laws against husbands for everything.
There is a Communist agenda to destroy families. Most people cannot see the forest for the trees these days. They laugh at what I am saying. Here's one article to evidence that I know what I'm talking about. The Attack Against The Family. They want to destroy your family. A disobedient wife is a quick way to ruin a marriage. Meddling mother-in-laws are the worst, responsible for destroying millions of marriages. Moms, mind your own business!!!
A happy marriage is when the man leads and the wife follows. If the husband doesn't lead, then learn to camp out for awhile. Don't you rebel!!! Many marriages are two-headed monsters!!! Children are afraid of monsters! You women who rebel are hurting your children when your marriage fails. God created each woman for the purpose of being a HELP MEET (Genesis 2:18). If your marriage fails, then you have failed at your life's work ladies!!!
Part of pleasing God is accepting and submitting to authority. Romans 13 teaches submission to government. Daniel 2:21 says God sets up kings and removes them from power. A lot of people today who are patriots and concerned citizens are fighting to restore liberty in America, but they have no desire to forsake their idolatry and wicked ways. It won't work. You cannot live in sin and honestly expect God to bless a nation. Alex Jones won't save America. He claims to be a Christian, but he never preaches the Gospel. The answer is NOT reformation, nor rehabilitation, nor legislation, nor education; but regeneration!!! Ye must be born again!!!
The show AMERICAN IDOL tells on themselves, admitting the idolatrous nature of America today. Teenagers literally worship Rock stars and actors. God hates idolatry, which is the sin of placing anyone or anything as a higher priority in one's life than God. Today's youth idolize the singers and the music, while ignoring the truths of the Word of God.
Young girls and women should be taught to OBEY their husband, without question. The Bible tells us exactly what to teach young girls and women in Titus 2:4-5, “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”
This Evil Generation Has A Serious Problem With Authority
2nd Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”
People don't want an authoritative Bible anymore, so they get a new version. Women don't want an authoritative husband anymore, so they marry a hen-pecked wimp (or divorce a husband who takes charge or is less than perfect). Women have been indoctrinated by evil books, magazines, wrong friends and television to become INTOLERANT of less than perfect husbands. One woman said she divorced her husband because he called her a female dog. What a wicked woman!
People don't want an authoritative pastor anymore, so they call a lesbian or ecumenical pantywaist sissy who can't preach his way out of a paper bag. Many churches have hired homosexuals or milquetoast pansies to fill the pulpit (if the pulpit committee approves of their sermonette). It will be a cold day in Hell before any pulpit committee would ever tell me what I can preach. My preaching isn't even my business, it's God's. God tells me what to preach and no one else!!! I like what my preacher once said, “These are my pants and this is my pulpit. If I want to split my pants in my pulpit I will!” People want someone to tickle their ears, telling them what they want to to hear instead of what they need to hear from God's Word. The great need of the world today is preaching preachers! Pastors are dime a dozen! America needs preachers who PREACH THE WORD!!!
Women today who are quick to argue the issue of wifely obedience are brats, rebels and ought not be married lest they destroy some poor man's life. Police aren't there to serve and protect any more. That was 40-years ago. Cops today are hired to enforce the law, right or wrong. They're there to enforce the rights of everyone, including same-sex perverts, abortionists, pornographers, gambling casinos, boozers and other reprobates. They'll sell their soul for a paycheck. Many seek to be cops to abuse others. Cops are frightening these days because they often have no sense of decency, honor nor respect.
Every conversation about wifely submission always condescends into a hypothetical argument about abusive husbands. The truth is that the same feminist rebels who always bring up some elusive coat-hanger incident to justify legalized abortion, are the same women who always use abusive husbands as an excuse for wives to disobey their husband. No wife who doesn't believe in strict obedience to her husband can be a Proverbs 31 wife. It is sad that millions of people are being directed by K-LOVE and other apostate religious groups to Proverbs 31 Ministry that doesn't even teach women to OBEY their husbands. They are part of the feminist movement destroying America. People don't want an authoritative Bible anymore, so they throw away the precious King James Bible and use a homosexual New International Version instead.
Women especially have a problem with God-ordained masculine authority. People don't want a man of God who tells it like it is. Instead they want to attend a Rock concert every Sunday at the HILLSONG church cult. Or they want to hear Max Lucado or Joel Osteen tickle their ears with bull crap. The Bible is brutally honest. God said what He meant, and meant what He said. If you want a homosexual lesbian Bible, then you will get what you deserve in eternity. I want the truth. I must have the truth, for without it I absolutely cannot worship God (John 4:24).
Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) fans are all being led to follow apostate ministers. Max Lucado is at the top, appearing in concert With Michael W. Smith, Matt Maher and Amy Grant (all apostates). Matt Maher is a Roman Catholic minister and worship leader in Arizona. The Devil is attempting to unite evangelical churches with unbelievers to deceive the masses into Hell. The Gospel is under attack. New versions of the Bible are doctrinally corrupt and pervert the meaning of salvation, teaching self-righteousness instead of salvation by grace through faith PLUS NOTHING. Catholics add everything! CCM is synonymous with apostate ministers, ecumenism and the Catholic church. God curse is upon the Catholic religion, because they worship Mary, require keeping the Seven Sacraments to be saved, and elevate the traditions of men above the commandments of God (Mark 7:6-13). Religion is a road to Hell paved with good intentions.
The Proverbs 31 Ministry is synonymous with CCM and apostasy. I have to warn women about this group because they are very popular and are all over the internet. The internet is a very dangerous place these days, especially concerning spiritual matters. Everybody and their dog are professing to be Christians these days, and they all ask for donations or have something to sell.
I'm a preacher of the Gospel and God gave me this ministry to fight the good fight of faith. I am not trying to be unkind to anyone, but we are living in a wicked generation of pleasure-seekers! 2nd Timothy 3:1-5 warned that people would become lovers of their own selves in the Last Days. We are certainly living in the Last Days. I don't even want to mention the horrible things in the news just for today. It's shocking, depressing and clearly evidences what happens to a society that abandons God. Removing the Bible from America's classrooms in 1963 was the worst idea in the history of bad ideas. We have brought this upon ourselves in America. The love of money has c\compelled evil men and women to do anything to get it. And so they've corrupted our society and destroyed everything holy, moral and upright.
The Bible teaches for women to marry, bear children, guide the house and stay out of trouble (1st Timothy 5:14-15).
Titus 2:4-5, “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”
