Why Divine Femininity is Demonic - A Christian Soft Girl Perspective

Why Divine Femininity is Demonic - A Christian Soft Girl Perspective

So, I’ve got a confession to make. I hate terms like feminine energy or urge, but one that I’ve despised is Divine Femininity.

And this is coming from a black Christian soft girl perspective.

When I first heard this term, I was on TIKTOK, and I felt like someone was trying to sell a course - kind of like the Twin Flame vibe. 

But upon further research, I started to see the root of all this nonsense. And if you’re like me, a Christian who loves the soft girl life, you’ll see why we can’t stand behind this either.

The concept of divine feminine refers to the energy that exists within us and without us. According to tinyrituals.co, this divine feminine energy that exists within and without us is softer, nurturing, intuitive, and empowering. 

And at first, it sounds spiritual - at least on the surface. 

But as Christians, we know that is not true. The Bible describes the human heart as desperately evil and wicked. It’s a dark, void and empty pit.

And when I read that verse, the image that comes to mind is Genesis 1. 

Before God spoke, the earth was formless and void, empty and dark. It wasn’t until God said, “let there be light” and God saw there was light and God saw that the light was good (pleasing, useful) and [e]He affirmed and sustained it; and God separated the light [distinguishing it] from the dark.

Now, don’t miss that. Apart from God, there is nothing good. There is just confusion and emptiness, void of any meaning. It wasn’t until God spoke, and there was light. 

But if we go back to that original definition, there is this notion that this divine femininity is trying to make a claim that there is a feminine higher power.

In fact, According to Gnostic texts, which is where this ideology originates from,  Sophia was the right hand of God and creator of the world, and Mary Magdalene was Jesus' favorite apostle, and probably his wife, then Pope Gregory decided to remake her into a prostitute.

Again, that’s just not true. First, we know that it was Jesus who is seated at the right hand of God and it was Jesus who was there at the beginning of time. In fact, John opens up the gospel with this very statement. 

1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and [b]the Word was God Himself. He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines on in the [c]darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].

I chose the Amplified Bible Version because it really illustrates a powerful point that before anything was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

Jesus existed in the beginning with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him, and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being.

Remember the definition of divine femininity, well, if you read a little closer, we’re seeing an image of a feminine deity that exists to provide life - ie she is the nurture, softer, and essentially giving life.

Now, looking over these two verses directly opposing the concept of divine femininity. Jesus is our source of life, not femininity or masculinity. 

“But I do feel like I’m more masculine. Is it wrong to say that I’m operating in my masculine energy?”

Well, I’d say that depends.

In Genesis 5:2, we’re told that God created both male and female and blessed them and called them “human.” So femininity nad masculinity are both made by God but not to be worshiped, but rather to fulfill God’s purpose which was to go forth and multiply and fill the earth.

God created men and women as complementary, but it’s sin that has taken what God has made and corrupted it.

So, I’d say that while it’s ok to want to be more feminine and less masculine, we need to look at things in the proper context.

We first need to address the sin aspect and remember the gospel message. 

Continuing John 1, it reads

9 There it was—the true Light [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] which, coming into the world, enlightens everyone. He (Christ) was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. He came to that which was His own [that which belonged to Him—His world, His creation, His possession], and those who were His own [people—the Jewish nation] did not receive and welcome Him. But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].

Jesus came to restore what was lost in the garden of Eden. 

Our relationship with God. 

And that’s the beautiful thing about being a Christian, is the fact that as broken, lost and rejected you feel - and rightfully so, God loved us so much that He sent His son to die for our sin.

We need to ask ourselves what is the condition of our heart. As Christians, have we fully repented and accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior

Are we praying regularly and prioritizing our relationship with Jesus over our soft life goals?

Do we trust Jesus fully with our dreams, hopes, worries, and anxiety?

Again, it’s ok to want to be more feminine, but we just can’t prioritize our femininity over our relationship with God. 

Anyhoo, that’s enough from me. Let me know your thoughts.
