Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Work With Men as Equals?

by Bill Gothard of ATI/Vision Forum (If not personally written by Bill he has approved the message)

 “While unmarried women may have more flexibility in applying the principle that women were created for a domestic calling, it is not the ordinary and fitting role of women to work alongside men as their functional equals in public spheres of dominion (industry, commerce, civil government, the military, etc.). The exceptional circumstance (singleness) ought not redefine the ordinary, God-ordained social roles of men and women as created.”
“Male leadership in the home carries over into the church: only men are permitted to hold the ruling office in the church. A God-honoring society will likewise prefer male leadership in civil and other spheres as an application of and support for God’s order in the formative institutions of family and church.”

    Blah, blah, blah “created” male dominion…
    Sure am glad I don’t have anything to do with those folks.

    This is from tenet 14 and tenet 11 of Vision Forum’s “tenets of Biblical patriarchy”.

    Here, a blogger shows how the scriptures quoted in these tenets do not prove them at all:

    So why did Jesus send the woman at the well (who was living with a man who wasn’t her husband after having been married five times) to teach others in her village about Him? Why did He first appear to women after His crucifixion? I’m always pleasantly surprised to read the Bible and find out how fair and equal Jesus really was.

    Too bad most people seem to prefer the wrathful God of the OT to the peace-loving hippie of the New.
