The Proverbs 31 Woman is Not the Doctrines of Womanhood

The Proverbs 31 Woman is Not the Doctrines of Womanhood

For International Women’s Day, Dale Partridge put up the following post on his Instagram account: These qualities of a godly woman are great and supported biblically but many women were up in arms over it and took him to task. One woman named Rachel wrote, “This image of a biblical woman isn’t incorrect, it’s simply incomplete. Where is the Proverbs 31 description of a woman who is a busy, independent, entrepreneurial, respected leader in her home and community? Cherry picking…

Working Mischief in the World

Working Mischief in the World

Every morning, I spend some time in the Word. I have been reading through Ecclesiastes and came across this verse: “And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleases God shall escape from her, but the sinner shall be taken by her” (Ecclesiastes 7:26). This piqued my interest so I looked this verse up in the commentaries. This is what Pulpit Commentary had to say about it….

No One Wants to Take Care of the Home

No One Wants to Take Care of the Home

Women entering the workforce has caused war between the sexes. Women want to take over men’s roles (careers) but most men don’t want to take over women’s roles (keepers at home). Take this example of what has been spread around Facebook: A man named Brian wrote: “No man working 40 hours a week wanna come home to a hot pocket and fruit punch!” A woman named Jessica responded to him: “No woman working 40+ hours a week wanna come home…

Working as a Steward of Another Man’s Quasi-Household

Working as a Steward of Another Man’s Quasi-Household

Here is an excellent post written by a man named Dominic Tennant. His blog is called “In the Habit of Goring: Where a Recovering Ex-Atheist Skewers Things With A Sharp Two-Edged Sword.” He has a VERY interesting take on women as buisnesswomen or women rulers. Aside from Deborah, this is the recurring response to the argument against female rulers. To know what is appropriate for women in business, we need to first go back to what is appropriate for women…

She Does Not Seek Her Own Way

She Does Not Seek Her Own Way

“Charity…does not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:5, 6). The KJV of the Bible uses the word “charity” instead of love. Charity means “in a general sense, love, benevolence, good will; that disposition of heart which inclines men to think favorably of their fellow men, and to do them good.” Charity helps define what love is more clearly. Love is…

With Age Comes Wisdom and Experience

With Age Comes Wisdom and Experience

The Apostle Paul had a good reason for using the word “aged” when he commanded the aged women to teach the young women in Titus 2:3-5. The aged women have wisdom and experience that the young women don’t have. They have raised their children and have time to teach the young women. A few month ago, I wrote about young women bloggers divorcing and received a few great comments from aged women that may be of interest to you! Debby…

Are You a Foolish or a Wise Woman?

Are You a Foolish or a Wise Woman?

In James 3:14-17, we are clearly shown what a foolish and wise woman looks like. Unfortunately, there are many foolish women in our world. They don’t know God nor do they want to worship Him. They want to be their own god, make up their own rules, and live life as they please. They will even twist scripture so they can do what they want instead of obey God. “But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts,…

I Don’t Want to Be a Strong, Independent Black Woman

I Don’t Want to Be a Strong, Independent Black Woman

A guest post by Stacie Cherill Dickson. May you be blessed. I know I sure was! I want to be strong, but in the counterculture way of having a meek and quiet spirit. The world tells us that a ‘good’ Black women is one who essentially acts like a man and I am taking a stand against that lie! How can we expect have strong marriage and be a wife if we aren’t even acting like a woman! If we, as…

Watering Down Truth to Be Liked

Watering Down Truth to Be Liked

God has a good reason for all that He commands. He is good and we can trust Him. He commands that older women teach the younger women biblical womanhood for a good reason. I see younger women sharing some controversial posts with truth in them then begin backtracking when others who comment start to give them a hard time. They care much more about being liked than speaking truth. The younger women fail to understand the importance of speaking even…

Snatching Ambiguity From Clarity

Snatching Ambiguity From Clarity

During the Judge Kavanaugh’s hearings, the Judge gave an interesting phrase “snatching ambiguity from clarity” as he discussed textualism, the theory that the interpretation of the law is based primarily on the ordinary meaning of the text when it was written. He was referencing those who want to find every reason why what the law actually says is not what it actually means. Unfortunately, it seems that we have the same issue in the Church today where too many people…
