“An Obedient Wife is Old Fashion”

Since the word “Obey” for marriage vows and the “Obedient Wife” is supposedly outdated or old fashion for today’s modern society, then the word “Provide” and the “Providing Husband” must also be outdated and old fashion as well. Because a Providing Husband is what accompanies an Obedient Wife.

How come in this advance, progressive, evolved, and cerebral modern society with all these “independent women,” that these biblical writings below are not old fashion and outdated.

I Timothy 5:7-8 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”

II Thessalonians 3:6-12 “Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.”

But somehow (watering down the bible’s doctrine on marriage and manhood), someway (legislating an unjust and unbalance marriage and parental system that favors women), and for some reason (tax monies for the government from prodigal spending women, and for the fact the government can be in control over people and over households for being the arbitrator over them), these biblical writings below are old fashion and outdated.

Titus 2:3-5 “The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Ephesians 5:23-24, 33 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”

Who do these Modern Secular Authorities think they are kidding? If an Obedient wife is old fashion and outdated for today’s society, then a providing husband and a providing father is also old fashion and outdated for today’s society. You cannot have one without the other, they are a package deal—A Providing Husband & An Obedient Wife. A man doesn’t have to provide for a disobedient wife. Nor does a man have to provide for children that a malicious mother is using against him, and taking away all of his glory of being the head parent in charge.

Again, if it isn’t old fashion for a man to have to provide for his wife and children, then it isn’t old fashion for a wife to obey her husband. But if it is truly old fashion for a wife to obey her husband, then by all reason it’s old fashion for a husband to provide for his wife and children—simple and plain.

Paul, who wrote all four of the biblical writings above, also wrote in another place that women are to be obedient to their husband as saith the Law!

I Corinthians 14:34-35 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”

Paul wrote the above because of his belief in something that was written by Moses (Gen 3:16) approximately 1,450 years prior to Paul’s birth. How come Moses’ writings were not old fashion to Paul although though they were written 1,450 years prior to Paul’s birth?

Also, Paul believed in something else that was written by Solomon, which was written anywhere from 970-to-930 years prior to Paul’s birth. That, whatsoever God does, it shall be forever.

Ecclesiastes 3:14-15 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.”

So what God said (and did) to Eve—who was representing all women—in the Garden of Eden, when he told her that “her husband shall rule over her,” he meant it Forever! Forever is a long time past the 1960’s feminist movement or even present day 2017.

Paul knew that whatsoever God does, he does it Forever! That’s why Paul’s writings are full of the notion that “man, is the head of the woman.”

I Corinthians 11:1-3 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.”

Moses lived in Egypt, in the Land of Midian, and then in the wilderness around 1527-1407 B.C. And Paul lived in the Roman Empire in first century A.D. But again, Paul didn’t look at Moses’ writings and advocate that An Obedient Wife was old fashion, even though Paul was living in the Roman Empire. However, concerning something else, Paul did look at Moses’ writings as old fashion for his time period in the Roman Empire. That something else was for certain men having the option to have multiple wives.

Moses wrote:

Exodus 21: 9-10 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters. If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.

Deuteronomy 21:15-17 “If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated: Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the firstborn: But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.”

But Paul wrote:

I Timothy 3:1-2, 11-13 “This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

Titus 1:5-7 “For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.”

Since Paul wrote so contrary to what Moses wrote concerning certain men having multiple wives, we see in actuality that Paul didn’t believe in all things written in the law and in the prophets as he said he did.

Acts 24:10-14 Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself: Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship. And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city: Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets.”

And that was a mistake by Paul, not believing in the Polygamy of a strong man having multiple wives, which I have addressed in Book V in the Man, the Head of Woman Series which will be published in a few months.

Paul’s stance against strong men having multiple wives, and him considering it to be “old fashion” in the Roman Empire puts even more affirmation on the biblical stance that “Wives have to Obey their Husbands.” And that it is a perpetual thing for “Wives to Obey their Husbands.”

Though Paul dared to contradict himself and go here “Polygamous Marriage is Old Fashion,” yet he didn’t dare to go there (like modern preachers have went) “An Obedient Wife is Old Fashion.” If Paul had gone there, he would have been blaspheming the Word of God as he wrote—Titus 2:5. Obviously, Paul knew the danger of going there “A Obedient Wife is Old Fashion,” so he didn’t go there. Though he had the audacity to go here “Polygamous Marriage is Old Fashion.”

Another thing that we read but didn’t really touch on was on how “God requires that which is past”:

Ecclesiastes 3:14-15 “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.”

Of-course God doesn’t require the wicked things of the past, like all the idolatries, mass murders, child sacrifice, oppression of people, etc. God requires the “good things” of the past, because how can the “good things” of the past ever become Old fashion!

Jeremiah 6:16 “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for [the old paths], where is [the good way], and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”

As we see in the scripture above, people refused to walk in the old paths wherein was the good way, when they said “We will not walk therein.” Modern westernized women, with the stamp of approval of male secular and religious authorities, refuse to walk in the old paths wherein the good way is. Nonetheless, the old path is still the good way.

Certain things of the old paths were indeed good; therefore, God want these good things to be done in the present and forevermore. What are these good things that were done in the old path and in the past, which God requires to be done forever? One of the good things from the past that is to be done forever is certainly an Obedient Wife!

Titus 2:4-5 “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, [good], obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

Also, for modern women to do the good things of the past that God requires now, modern women must look to the good women of the past for an example in goodness and righteousness. Good women of the past like Sarah.

Isaiah 51:1-2 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto [Sarah] that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.”

Sarah is a good example, of a good woman, doing the good things of the past that God requires now. The [good] thing that Sarah did in the past that God requires now is that Sarah was Obedient to her Husband Abraham. Like all the other “holy women” of old time.”

I Peter 3:1, 5-6 “Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;  For after this manner in the old time the [holy women] also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”

Did you get that? Holy women are obedient to their husbands; not stupid women; not old fashion women; not weak women; and not just foreign women. But Holy Women are obedient to their husbands.

Titus 2:3-5 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh [holiness], not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

Women who are disobedient to their husbands are not Holy Women. They are Wicked Women who don’t trust in God. And they are wicked women who don’t follow the [good] example of the holy women like Sarah of the old days. Such holy women who were obedient to their husbands because they trusted in God. Which is the good thing of the women of the past that God requires now in women.
