Give the Guy a Break4:58 AM
One of the things that disturbs me most about the patriarchy movement is its tendency to incite women against men. The ladies read the books on how to be a great father, the ladies download the sermons on what it means to be a man, the ladies subscribe to every feed regarding "what he must be" in order to marry him and bear his children for the kingdom glory of Christ Jesus. Since the men failed to notice the Gospel According to Vision Forum in the appendix to the ESV Study Bible, they went on doing their own thing -- trying to love their wives and kids, hold down the fort, keep a job, read their Bible every evening. Meanwhile, I heard from their wives and daughters: "I really want another child, but he just doesn't want to" or "He doesn't lead family devotions every night" or "My daddy never really made an effort to start a relationship with me" or "I asked my dad's advice and it didn't match with what the Botkin girls said. How am I supposed to be a visionary daughter now?"
