Patriarchy

I have been interested in reading about what some are calling Biblical patriarchy, but have not been convinced. I even found some of it disturbing. Yesterday, I read the current issue of No Greater Joy magazine. I do not share all of what Michael Pearl believes, but I usually agree with his take on parenting. Anywho, the Pearls wrote this article which I believe is just the ticket to answer this whole patriarchy thing.

I find the patriarchy thing hard to understand, proponents speak of scripture pointing their patriarchal beliefs yet I can't find them myself. The Pearls article is very interesting and as a whole I agree with him.

I'm glad that someone who is very pro-family and very pro-strong-daddy, also felt like this patriarchy thing was just a little over-the-top and said something.
Glad to see you back Sarah!
Hi Michele!

Great article. Actually, I guess I've been in the dark because I' haven't even heard that this was this big of a deal. In Croatia we tend to miss some of the issues in the states.

Isn't it true, the hardest thing for Christians to grasp is BALANCE. We are either two far to one side or too liberal on the other.

Thanks for sharing this good article, now I'm illuminated.
