by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Why Don’t Women’s Bible Studies Teach Godly Submission?
Editor’s note: Another pile of self-justifications for her ministry of hectoring younger women into doing it her way. She’s starting to get dull and repeat herself quite a lot lately.
Why don’t Women’s Bible Studies teach godly submission? I have no idea but I suspect it’s because many women no longer believe in it or they are afraid to teach it because of what feminism has done to women today, including Christian women. We should never fear what God has taught us to teach. From my experience, many Christian women are hungry for the truth of God’s Word concerning godly womanhood. Marriage isn’t working the way most women have been brought up. They see the devastation arguing and divorce causes since many of them are products of divorced parents and don’t want it for their children.
The best thing Women’s Bible Studies can do is to begin teaching what God has commanded older women to teach young women. The Church will never be strong if marriages aren’t strong. God’s vehicle to raising godly offspring is through godly, united parents with mothers home full time committed to training, disciplining, and teaching their children God’s Word. This world is in desperate need for godly children who become godly adults to contribute goodness, kindness, hard work, and preach the Gospel with their lives and words. This world needs Jesus. Are you bold enough to speak to the women leadership of your church and ask them to teach godly submission? Have you tried? I have and it wasn’t received well at all so I began a blog and decided to teach them this way instead.
