  1. This verse came up on my daily bible verse for mothers day:
    “Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her.” Proverbs 31:28

    Something I have noticed on pat sites such as BGR….that this verse is nowhere in practice or mentioned…that women are to do their “god given role of wifely submission, house work and motherhood” and be happy in it not matter how hard and unrewarding her life is. To seek happiness or purpose from any other area of life is considered sinful and going against “god’s purpose and design.”

    But the verses preceding Prov 31 is a whole list of things the woman has done to take care of her family, in essence, praising her for all her accomplishments. Yet the closest to saying anything nice to mom and wife on that site is “if she deserves it but not to waste praise for doing the things she has been designed to do, that more time should be spent on disciplining the wife.”

    i would like to ask you to comment on why such christians that believe in patriarchy are so vitriolic to those christians who do not agree with them on patriarchy. Are they even christian? I have been called wayward wife, sinner, going against god’s will and most recently feminist satanist for disagreeing with them.

      Some teach, or been taught, that complementarianism is the gospel, and see contrary teaching as heresy. Rather than engage, they dismiss.
