Nancy Campbell is one of my favorite godly, older woman. She hasn’t compromised on the truth of God’s Word and I appreciate this about her since I see so many other women compromising on what they used to teach that was biblically sound to fit into our culture and not offend women. Our goal in life shouldn’t be to not offend others. We are commanded to speak the truth in love and may we never veer away from this high and holy path no matter who it offends or how many “followers” you lose.
Nancy was asked about stay-at-home-dads and her reply was biblically accurate and exactly how I have replied to women who have asked me. This is how she responded.
This is becoming more accepted in our humanistic society. However, it is the opposite to God’s plan for men and women. God created the woman to be the nurturer, nourisher, and nest builder of the home. He created the man to be the provider, protector, and priest of the home.
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 full-time 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.
Two verses onwards, God speaks about the woman and gives a description of the lifestyle He has planned for her: “Well reported of for good works; if she has brought up children (FIRST ON GOD’S LIST), if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed very good work” (1 Timothy 5:10). It is a picture of a mother ministering to her children first and then opening her doors in hospitality and reaching out to the needy around her. Her ministry is in her home.
The picture God gives of the wife in Psalm 128 is of her in the heart of her home with her children all around her table (Psalm 128:3). The picture God gives of the wife in the New Testament is of her being a keeper at home, ministering to the needs of her children and managing her home (1 Timothy 2:15).
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.
God has also put within women a love for home, unless of course it is brainwashed out of her by our education system, the media, and the deception of our progressive society. A man is not cut out for the finer touches of the home and to making a home feel like a home. He was created to go out and to provide; to work hard for his family.
And what about the following generations? The greatest teaching we give our children is our example. They watch what we do. They observe our roles. When we reverse the roles, they grow up confused. What happens to society? As more men stay home and more women enter the work force, there will be less and less children born. A career woman who is full time providing for the family does not have time to have children. Already we are being overtaken by the Islamic population who surpass us. Our average is only 1.8 children per family. Their average is 6.8 per family.
And God’s very first commandment carries with it a mandate for dominion (Genesis 1:28). Those who are fruitful and multiply will be those who take dominion. We see this already happening in Europe.
Let’s stop this ridiculous deception now–for the sake of our families now and for the sake of future generations.
Be blessed, Nancy Campbell
One young woman responded this way to Nancy’s post on Facebook: “I TOTALLY DISAGREE AND I WILL BE LEAVING, THIS PAGE. VERY VERY SAD. I will pray for you.” Women today are deeply offended by truth, especially if it doesn’t match up to what they want to do and believe. Then they have temper tantrums, as this young woman did, and stomp off.
This should never be said about us, women. As godly women who love the Lord’s ways more than our ways since His ways are so much higher and better than our ways, we seek to know His will for our lives and then walk in it joyfully; for there is nothing better in life than walking on the narrow path that leads to life, even if it is in complete opposition to the world’s ways.
I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
1 Timothy 5:14
