Biblical courting dating mexicana dating
Occasionally I will check out various atheist blogs and You Tube channels that critique this blog.
What I often find interesting is that they admit something many Christian feminist bloggers will not admit. Sure, it is fine if you want to, they say, but marriage is no longer needed for a strong and stable society in their view.
Before the political feminist movements of the mid 19th century divorce rates were three percent.
As men gave more and more control to women over dating and marriage divorce rates began to skyrocket and eventually peak at over fifty percent by the mid 1980s (with women being the initiators in seventy percent of divorces).
So the modern state of male/female relationships is that many men have been robbed of their purpose and their desires in marriage and they have come under what one of America’s founding fathers, John Adams, warned of if women were ever given equal rights with men and that is the “despotism of the petticoat” or in other words the “despotism of women”.
And since women came to dominate male/female relationships with the abandonment of courtship and the embrace of the new concept of “dating” in late 19th and early 20th centuries marriage as an institution has been severely decimated.
But we as Christians do not have the option of loosing hope in God’s institution of marriage.
It is about obeying God’s first command to mankind: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (1 Corinthians ).
In other words, if your reason for not marrying is to serve God in an undivided fashion than your reason for celibacy is honorable and holy before God.
Women were not given their common human traits with men for this same purpose.
They were given their humanity in order to be a helper and companion to man they were purposefully made as “the weaker vessel” as 1 Peter 3:7 states so that they would need man’s leadership, provision and protection as all mankind needs God’s leadership, provision and protection.
Many women in our post-feminist culture do not seek out men in marriage for their provision and their protection.
