Are You a Titus 2 Woman?

The GOP candidacy of Sarah Palin for vice president has set off a firestorm of controversy. Many conservatives were prepared to defend a direct attack against Biblical and traditional womanhood if Hillary Clinton had received the Democratic nomination for President, but they were not expecting the Republicans to nominate a Christian woman for VP. These very same conservatives are now applauding the choice of Palin and seem to have forgotten what the Word of God says about the role of a Christian woman.

I pray you will not be misled or ignorant on this matter, but instead will seek to be a ‘Titus 2 woman’.

God’s Word tells us:

“But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine: that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience; the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.” - Titus 2: 1-5 (NKJ)

We are further instructed in 1Timothy, chapter 5, verse 14:

“Therefore I desire that the younger widows marry, bear children, manage the house, give no opportunity to the adversary to speak reproachfully.”


Our position as women in Christ is under the headship of men. This includes all areas of government: the family, the church and the civil government as God has made no distinction or created any “exceptions” to this Biblical principle in Scripture:

“But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” (1Corinthians 11:3 – NKJ)

“For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.” (1Peter 3: 5, 6 - NKJ)

“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.” (Ephesians 5: 22, 23 – NKJ)

Our calling as daughters, wives and mothers is not an easy one and it may require us to give up some dearly held plans or personal ambition, but the contentment, joy and peace we gain through obedience to Christ will far outweigh whatever we may sacrifice.

Isn’t it time we brought some order and godliness to our world by seeking to be a woman like those written about in Scripture? A ‘Titus 2 woman’ submits to Jesus Christ and finds fulfillment in the role He has created for her. Let us trust Him to show us the best path to take as a godly woman. May we lose ourselves in Christ and in return, find satisfaction for our souls. Amen.

A Judge and the Ten Commandments

We now face a new moral crisis, a new crisis of conscience, for voters in the United States, specifically, this time voters in the state of Alabama. That's because on December 12 the voters of that state will elect a new United States Senator in a special election made necessary in order to fill the seat that had been vacated by the current Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions. - Dr. Albert Mohler - President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ( Daily Briefing 11.13.17)

Dear Friends,
There has been much discussion on the Roy Moore US Senate race and recent allegations of sexual impropriety and child sexual abuse made by women who claim to have been teenagers when these events took place. Those of you who follow my blogs know that I once was a supporter of Judge Moore and theonomy in general. 
However, I had a change of heart regarding theonomy several years ago (2013), and now I am no longer a supporter of Judge Moore.  I believe there are credible reports th…

Aiming for Godly Growth in 2018

Dear Friends,

There is much busyness in the life of today's women, but if you are a Christian, you will have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. Here are some recently written articles by other authors I think you'll find valuable. I pray you'll make time to read and reflect upon the godly advice and wisdom shared in each one.

The first article is On Being a Christian Woman in the Year of Our Lord, 2018written by Abigail Dodds and posted at her blog Hope and Stay.

Abigail writes about the hunger of Christian women for sound teaching in today's churches, which is right and good, but also warns of some pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here are some valuable excerpts from her article:
Here’s my summary: Biblically-conservative Christian women are eager to have visible, biblically-conservative leadership by women in their churches and eager to learn from gifted, female Bible teachers whether locally or nationally. Secondly, women with the gift of teach…

What on earth was Roy Moore thinking?

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I saw this tweet repeating a comment reported by the LA Times that Roy Moore made at a campaign rally last September when one of his supporters asked him when he thought the last time America was "great:"
"I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction." (Taken from Roy Moore: Last Time America was 'Great" was During 'Slavery'; Newsweek, 12.7.2017) I realize this is being presented out of context and sensationalized, but really, folks, what on earth was Roy Moore thinking when he said it?  Regardless of how foolish making such a comment is during a public campaign event for a national office, it's just plain wrong.
