UK - New Definition of ‘Woman’

Arno Froese

The Cambridge Dictionary has updated its definition of “woman” to include anyone who “identifies as female” regardless of their sex at birth. 

It now states that as well as definitions including an “adult female human being,” a woman can also be “an adult who lives and identifies as female though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth.” 

The dictionary’s editors made the changes after studying patterns of how the word “woman” was being used across society, and concluded that the new definition is one that English learners “should be aware of.”

However, the Cambridge Dictionary is not the first dictionary to change its definitions. In July, Merriam-Webster added a supplementary definition of “female” that defines the term as “having a gender identity that is the opposite of male.” 

The Cambridge Dictionary also updated its definition of “man.” As well as definitions including “an adult male human being” and “the human race,” it now includes the definition: “an adult who lives and identifies as male though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth.”, 13 December 2022

Arno's Commentary

This tendency is not surprising. Why? Because the god of this world, who rules every nation on planet earth, intends to reveal himself through his masterpiece, Antichrist. To qualify for this title—or to be more precise, to be revealed in the flesh and blood as a human being on earth—it is needful to accomplish the impossible; namely, peace on earth. This is something we should not merely view on the level of end-time events, but should know that it has been in the works since the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden.

Antichrist has to mimic, for example, Isaiah 9:6: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Note “The Prince of Peace”; Antichrist will accomplish seemingly supernatural feats, mimicking the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul, inspired by God the Holy Spirit, declares: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). Quite obviously, this is a spiritual matter, which is evident by the fact that when one becomes a believer, he or she continues to be a male or a female. Thus, to eradicate the distinct difference between man and woman is one of Antichrist’s ways of deception.

As we continue to observe the many news articles and compare them with Holy Scripture, we increasingly understand that the end stages of the end times are upon us.
