A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man;
Politics is about "human rights" = Humanism. The Bible and the Law is essentially about human responsibilities.
There is a hierarchy of entitlements with responsibilities in both Testaments.
Men are not to lord it over their wives and children. They do not have the right to bash, and shout, and abuse or destroy others
through violence, or through their drunkenness, or drug taking, or power trips...
This is all works of the flesh and a debased brutish person. Rather the scriptures command:
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies.
He that loveth his wife loveth himself. verse 28
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: verse 29
Read Ephesians 5:20-33 for the entire section on husbands and wives. Along with Ephesians chapter 6
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4
The extended family is a model of the Church with a hierarchy of responsibilities for the welfare and provision of all the members
of the family [kindness is from the Germanic word kin; i.e. family/tribe].
Regardless of atheism and Humanism and all things politically correct - Jesus who created human beings and marriage for men and women,
has the wisdom to implement social and spiritual rules that compliment the purpose of men being husbands and fathers; and for
women to be wives and mothers. We are psychologically different in mind and emotions.
A Christian family that follows the New Testament teachings on family hierarchy of responsibilities in love and the fruit of the Holy
Spirit will function successfully, and be an example to others.
The politics of women's liberation and equality has really only brought about much dysfunction and conflict in families,
along with divorce and multiple partners.
The scriptures are unpopular today and Christians are challenged to get with it and to move with the times. But this will only
lead to unbelief and profanities. For example, the Lutheran Church in Sweden is headed by a very very left-wing lesbian
in an immoral relationship with another women (and caring for her young son in this arrangement).
Depart from the scriptures and God only knows where you will end up... not the Kingdom of God.
then must be blameless, the husband of one wife,
vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(For if a man
know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
