Lancaster Farming, Saturday, September 11,1993-All
Farm Forum
Editor:
I was deeply disappointed with
Mr. Althouse’s article entitled.
Who’s the Head of the House?
which appeared in Lancaster
Farming on Aug. 21. As a Christ
ian woman, I would appreciate the
opportunity of sharing my person
al testimony.
I agree wholeheartedly with
Mr. Althouse when he contends
that we cannot honestly explain
away the biblical view of God’s
plan for the human family, when
we read Eph. 5:21-24. My only
choice lies in whether or not I
choose to obey what God has re
vealed to me, or to turn my back in
rejection and disbelief. I choose to
believe for God, and His Word
are the only absolute treasures I
can possess. For in the end, only
God and His truth will stand.
Mr. Althouse alludes that 40
years ago, the idea of the wife be
ing in submission to her husband
was accepted by a wide margin
who claimed Christianity. I would
like to ask your readers this ques
tion: Have the changes in home
life, as the nominal church took a
liberal stand, produced strong
famililes, or emotionally dis
traught individuals with little or
no moral inhibitions?
(Continued from Pago A 10)
I am happy to be the wife of a
godly man who strives to lead our
family in serving Christ. My hus
band would not enjoy being a
‘boss’ or a selfish commander.
Rather, with love toward us (Eph.
5:25), he strives to lead us in ful
filling God’s purpose in our lives.
I appreciate his sacrificial leader
ship, and thank God for the bless
ings of contentment and rest He
gives to our family, as we follow
His prescribed plan.
We, as a family, are glad that
God has not authorized us to go
through the Bible and disqualify
portions we do not comprehend. If
a portion of scripture seems incon
sistent to us, it is either because
we lack understanding in the vari
ous doctrines God has woven
through His Word, or because we
have taken that scripture out of its
context
I firmly believe that God does,
indeed, command us to literally
follow the Bible. “If a man love
me, he will keep my words...”
John 14:23. A radical change from
the world’s point of view? Most
certainly so! For in the chaos that
envelopes the world today, God’s
way is the only way that works!
