We live in a decadent generation where no one wants to be what they were meant to be. Who would have ever thought 20 years ago that today homosexual and lesbians would be allowed to marry and raise children? Who ever dreamed that Olympic decathlon winner, Bruce Jenner, would today be dressing and living like a woman?
Actually, all this should not be so surprising. Many years ago we saw women wearing their hair like men. If men could smoke, women wanted to do the same. If the drank, so did they. They dressed like men, they lived like men, and in some cases they looked like men. Women left the home and went to work just like their male counterpart. Men became stay at home parents doing what women used to do.
We saw men relinquish their authority over woman in the home and in the church. Women were allowed to preach and teach like a man in denominations and in part in the churches of Christ. Denominational women took on leadership roles ruling both the home and the church.
Okay, here is how it works in God’s Word. Jesus is the head of the church and man was given authority over both the home and the local church (Col 1:18 ff; Eph 5:23,24; 1 Tim 3:1-13). This is not the optional plan of man but the required law of Christ!
