by Tim Bayly from Bayly Blog – Feminists and Libertarians: This is My Father’s World
Editor’s note: You can almost smell the smoke coming out of his ears as he salivates about all those sinful folks he personally hates being barbequed for all eternity in Satan’s smoker. He’s loving it. Not much love of Jesus in any of his words. I wonder who these ‘Internet Shrews,’ and ‘Calamity Janes’ of the internet he’s venting over are? He hates Tim Keller and ‘Perverts’. Shouldn’t someone clue him in that his brown noser in chief on this piece is a pervert obsessed with young breasts and teenagers breeding?
So when the feminist husband refuses to “command his family to keep the way of the Lord” (Gen 18:9) because he hates the command authority God delegated to him, watch what happens. First, righteousness and justice leave his home; and second, the church and civil authorities come into his home and rule. If the family is part of a church, it starts with the older (Titus 2) women and pastors and elders: they have to adjudicate the conflict in the home as best they can. And if the church fails and crimes are committed, the authority shifts over to Child Protective Services, Family Court, lawyers and judges, policemen/women, prosecutors, prison guards, and coroners.
And what of the current crop of Millennial libertarian/anarchists? They will fare no better than the feminists, and maybe much worse. If the civil authority is the final father called by God to pick up the pieces when house fathers and church fathers fail, what happens when the civil authority fails, also?
Neither rebellious wives, nor their abdicating husbands; neither rebellious sons and daughters, nor their abdicating fathers; neither the Calamity Janes attacking pastors and elders on their websites, nor the pastors and elders who live in fear of such attacks and abandon their sheep to the wolves; neither Reformed libertarian Millennials, nor the ecclesiastical and civil magistrates who wink at them; no matter what authority delegated by God is under attack by a rebel and what abdicator is complicit in that rebellion; authority is never removed, nor even diminished. Authority comes from God and is delegated by God with the command that those under that authority submit to that authority. Or else.
