Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting The Sanctuary?

Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting The Sanctuary? February 26, 2013

by Doug Wilson in his book “For a Glory and a Covering” page 48

“A husband must also be vigilant to protect his wife from spiritual harm. This is what Adam failed to do in the garden, and what Jesus faithfully did for us. A priest is one who guards and protects the sanctuary, and in this sense every Christian man is a priest in his home . . . The failure of Adam at this point was his fundamental failure, and it is the point where many of his male descendents find it far too easy to follow his example”
