Why Men Keep Their Mouths Shut

Reasons men keep their mouths shut on the issue of women in authority.

John Knox proposes three reasons why men shrink back and say nothing about women ruling over men, even when such an obvious biblical principle is being violated. The first reason men keep their mouths shut is for fear that “It may seem to tend to sedition.” Second it is “dangerous to the writer and the publisher.” And third, it won’t fix the problem because it may never come to the ears of those who need to hear it. (First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women, John Knox, Presbyterian Heritage Publications, 1993, p12)

I am glad some men are speaking out,

Feminism’s Historic “Firsts” Defy 1 Cor. 11:3

We are seeing a rush of “firsts” in history in the area of gender roles. Each one of them subverts the creation order.

  • First Female Republican Vice Presidential Candidate, Sarah Palin – 9-29-08.
  • First Female President, Harvard University, Drew G. Faust – 10-12-07.
  • First Female President, Yale University, Sharon Kugler – 10-13-07.
  • First Female Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton – 1-20-07.
  • First Female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi – 1-4-07.
  • First Female Secretary of State in US history, Madeline Albright – 12-5-96.

Why is this? It is because the historic Christian understanding of womanhood has been shelved. For some historical perspective we should remember that a female vice presidential candidate would have been unthinkable for our founding fathers. They were not all believers but they had a biblical world view regarding men and women and authority. They believed that women should never be in authority over a man for “God is the head of Christ, and Christ is the head of man and man is the head of woman” (1 Cor 11:3). If you get any of these out of order you have insurrection against the divine order. But today, order and authority are despised and thrown off. And to make matters worse, most people in the Christian community do not understand that it is just as much a heresy to put a man as head of Christ as it is to put a woman over a man.
