by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Stay At Home Dads
Editor’s note: This is disgusting even for Nancy Campbell. There is nothing wrong with fathers being the primary person caring for their children! Nancy does not understand that it’s not always about work or gender roles. Some single fathers have no choice but to be both mother and father. There are families where mother is too ill to do all the things a mother would do. There are times when mother may have to work and dad might have to take care of the children. It has nothing to do with secularism, or brainwashing, or the devil. Peoples needs and circumstances vary greatly based upon a reality beyond their control.
When a mother, to whom God has graciously and miraculously given children, leaves her children in a daycare, or even with their father, to pursue a fulltime career out of the home, she denies who God created her to be. When a father refrains from taking up his responsibility to provide for the home, he denies who he is as a man!
The only way you can accept this state of affairs is if you have a humanistic and progressive mindset. You cannot accept it if you have a biblical worldview.
God gives a warning to men in 1 timothy 5:8: “If any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” Take notice that these words were spoken to men, not to women.
To accept the reversal of roles, we must be brainwashed in some way. Why? Because it is opposite to nature. God has not invested in men the same maternal anointing He put in women. Yes, fathers love their children, but they do it in a different way to mothers. They have a strong instinct to protect their children. They want to provide for their children, but they cannot “mother” their children, especially babies and little ones. They are anointed to “father’ their children. And children need both mothering and fathering.
Babies and toddlers need the comfort of their mother’s breasts. Breastfeeding is tied up with motherhood. Scientific studies reveal that the more frequently a mother breastfeeds her baby the more motherly and nurturing she becomes. The hormones release the mothering hormones. A man does not have the same hormones God gives to mothers.
