FOCUS ON THE REDEEMER

some may focus so heavily on the "Bad" in patriarchy....they miss the bad in the overall picture.

What about the bad in matriarchy homes.  You know the ones where the matriarch is so insured by her self-driven life that she gambles off of her husband's money, she insults her disabled in-laws, she tells the men in the house what to do all the time with consistent anger, she drowns her-self in alcohol each night after picking her children up after day-care, she never visits her neighbor who needed a helping hand after the neighbor's boyfriend left.......

If one focus so heavily on the bad in "one group" and never see that the insult of that particular "bad" group will never fix the overall redemption for all of man-kind.

BOTH patriarchy AND Matriarchy......and overall brotherly and sisterly love NEEEEEED redemption.  They in and of-them-selves are not evil (some Christian women do get abandoned to raise 5+ children on her own)......  The evil is in condemning the right ability for men and women to avoid their own internal angers which would have never been set-free had it not been for the work on the cross.


*********************

A hint. To be anti-patriarchy is to deny reality of what the scripture says.

The reason men (and women too) believe in the "muslim" religion is because it has moments of "Patriarchy." To be anti-patriarch is to create more followers of "allah".....a very close name to allahim which is close to the name Elohim(hebrew God)

.....however, as proof of the condition of their religion, the men are never asked to "repent" of their evil actions.....


Do not focus on the EVIL in men. Be a wise virgin and focus on the GOOD in Christ.



Matthew 25King James Version (KJV)

25 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
