Our Doomed Society’s Survival is ONLY Patriarchy

"4 One that rules well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)" (1Ti 3:4-5)
"Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well." (1Ti 3:12)
"For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring on Abraham that which he has spoken of him." (Gen 18:19)
"……. but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." (Jos 24:15)
The society that God initially set up was based on the family as the fundamental building block, ruled under a Patriarchal system and basically rural. The Industrial Revolution began to change all that with machine ever more doing the work of mankind and deeply altering society. After the Second World War another epic revolution with its roots in the French Revolution began to evolve, it was the Democratic Revolution with profound impact in human societies. Out of this last revolution another anti God revolution emerged, the Gender Revolution also known as "Feminism". This one effectively brought about the final demise of Patriarchy (and family) as established by God Himself, and will eventually bring about the doom of this Democratic society. We are now living in the agonising throws of its last days.
Now, consider: we are His creation and TOTALLY dependent on God, thus can any creation run away from its Creator? Obviously Not! We are His creation indeed: "Know you that the LORD he is God: it is he that has made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture." (Psa 100:3) and He has Absolute Sovereignty over us: "See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand." (Deu 32:39)
Can we (His property) really pretend to be free of God and do in His Garden what we want, against His will?? NO! We are just kidding ourselves with dire consequence.
The only chance of survival our society has is to return to God’s order, i.e. Patriarchy.
What possibilities are there for our society to do that? Practically NONE. The only goal that our wayward, rebellious and deeply decadent society has in from is utter destruction, as spelled out in the book of Revelation, and the day of the Lord will come suddenly as a thief in the night. (2Pe 3:10)
What is Biblical Patriarchy or Judeo-Christian Patriarchy?
From the beginning God has ordained Man as the Ruler of his Family, the Head of his household, the head and not the tail, as written: "Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."" (Gen 2:18)
Now a helper is not superior or equal to the one it helps. God, He created woman in function of the man, to be his helper suitable for him, and as his subordinate, (not his boss nor his co-worker) (1Co 11:8,9). In other words, woman exists for the man, and without the man there would not be need for the woman. This is also reminded in Est 1:22 "every man should bear rule in his house".
In other words God has ordained the Man to be the Ruler in his own family, the king, the priest, the prophet of his own castle, the lord of his own home, and, by reflection, the ruler of all aspects of society, as it has been normative from the beginning till fifty years ago.
Of course in these evil days, Feminism and its supporters argue that this is only valid for the Old Testament and that we now we have evolved and surpassed such ‘barbarian’ times. They say that now we are under the New Testament Dispensation (as if they really believe in it) and thus woman is liberated from these ancient shackles and woman is free to (and indeed she must) be the family ruler as well as church ruler and ruler of nations and ruler of everything over the man, in fact a turning upside down of the Divine Order.
But what saith Scripture:
"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." (1Co 11:3)
"22 Wives, submit (adapt, be subordinate) yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head (ruler) of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be (subject) to their own husbands in every thing." (Eph 5:22-24)
"….. and [let] the wife [see] that she fear her husband." (Eph 5:33)
These verses, and others, are part of the New Testament, which clearly prove that Christianity has not changed the rulership/headship role of the man over the woman, at all. Indeed the Apostle Peter confirms the principle: "1 In like manner, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, even if any obey not the word, they may without the word be gained by the behaviour of their wives; 2 beholding your chaste behaviour [coupled] with fear. 3 Whose [adorning] let it not be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on apparel; 4 but [let it be] the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible [apparel] of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5 For after this manner aforetime the holy women also, who hoped in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands: 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose children ye now are, if ye do well, and are not put in fear by any terror." (1Pe 3:1-6)
The so-called "Christian" Feminism is deeply rooted in Paganism with its worship of the pagan religion of Mother Earth and its proponents are the daughters of Athaliah (2Ki 11:1-20) rather than of the most High God. This confirmed by the feminist.
Feminism is a total and open rebellion against God and man. Here are some relevant excerpts:
Anne Lori Gaylor: "Let's forget the myth of Jesus and let's turn towards the feminine salvation of the world".
Gloria Stimenn: "In the year 2000 we will grow, I hope, our children to believe in the human potential rather than God's".
Sheila Cronam: "Given that marriage is slavery for women, it is clear that the feministic institution must concentrate to attack the institution of marriage. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage".
Phillis Schlafly: "Feminists are not for equality, but want to kill all that is masculine".
The Declaration of Feminism says: "the end of marriage is necessary for the liberation of women; we are to return to the ancient female religions and magical arts".
The evil one, through democracy and feminism has effectively mentally castrated the men (the strength of the nations), thus destroying Patriarchy, and now even many ‘little pusillanimous men’ approve of this downgrade, and thus our western decadent nations are open to Islamic invaders and others. We shall send our female soldiers to defend us.
Another fallacious argument uses by the Feministic side is to proclaim that Biblical Patriarchy is advocating domestic violence and thus not ‘politically correct’. But this is just not true, for God does not approve domestic violence, but to Agape own family members. Now we must not confuse this violence with disciplining for God has given the father authority to discipline his children. (and his wife, if need be.) The Bible clearly teaches the Biblical Patriarch to spank his children, when they need it. (And if it is done right, they won't need it often!) There is an abundance of teaching on this. (Pro 13:24; 22:15; 23:13-14; Heb 12:5-11). Consequently, a good sharp swat (or two) to the bottom brings wonders of peace and tranquillity to the home! Or, even a slap to the face, if foul words or back talk is being uttered. These are not out of line with the Scriptures. But violence is NEVER approved in the family context. However, Scripture commands proper discipline as the hallmark of truly loving your child. "Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him." (Pro 13:24)
Now feministically driven European democratic societies want to pass a law to forbid disciplining children; the offenders will be facing heavy fines, imprisonment and even having the children removed from their parents, this in clear contrast to Scripture. Such lack of wisdom would never occur under Patriarchy.
The elimination of patriarchy has been one of the central goals of the feminist movement. According to feminist ideology, shared by vast segments of the population, is that patriarchy represents the institutionalized form of male domination. Therefore, the liberation of humanity from the last vestiges of patriarchy has been a central feminist goal, with exceeding success, as the Western world moves away from its religious Judeo-Christian roots.
Co-conspirator to the demise of Patriarchy is the normative picture of the "good life" for men, at least as presented in the dominant media culture, which does not include the comprehensive responsibilities of fatherhood. When men are not stigmatized for failure to be faithful as husbands and fathers, young men will take marriage and parenthood with little significance, as many will avoid marriage and fatherhood (and thus patriarchy) altogether, as today’s culture is the proof.
Patriarchy directs men to their responsibilities as husbands and fathers. In this system men who fail in these responsibilities are seen as inferior to those who are both faithful and effective. Furthermore, a patriarchal structure holds men accountable for the care, protection, discipline, and nurture of children and family. In such a society, irresponsibility in the tasks of parenthood is seen as a fundamental threat to civilization itself. We can see the proof thereof in our society in fast decay.
But the sensual tenets of our ‘fun’ oriented democratic society are diametrically opposite to those of Patriarchy that have lead us to deep decadence and eventually to the ultimate collapse of our rotten society. This is for sure if we continue on this way, moving away from the Judeo-Christian Patriarchy.
Gender areas of function:
Men are called to public spheres of dominion beyond the home into society, their authority begins within the home, and a man’s qualification to lead and ability to guide well in the public square is based upon his prior success in ruling his household. (1Ti 3:5; Eph 6:4)
Woman was created as a helper to the man, the bearer of children, and a ‘keeper at home’; this is God-ordained and the proper sphere of responsibility for a wife, that is the household and that which is associated with her home. When her domestic callings are fulfilled, as a helper to her husband in case of need, (and not in her name), she may be involved in activities in the marketplace and larger community. (Tit 2:4-5; Pro 31:10-31)
Whilst the woman is unmarried and not yet fulfilling her God given domestic duties, it is not fitting role for women to work alongside men as their functional equals in public spheres of dominion (industry, commerce, civil government, the military, etc.). The exceptional circumstance (being single) must not redefine the ordinary, God-ordained, different roles of men and women as created. (Gen 2:18; Act 16:14; Jos 1:14)
Christians must believe and obey whatever the inerrant Bible teaches and commands as the sufficient guide for all of faith and practical living. The Word of God provides the Christian, through precept, pattern and principles all that is necessary to make wise decisions concerning the many morally complex issues of life. (2Ti 3:16-17; 2Pe 1:3)
The Patriarchs (Fathers) need to exercise discernment in the choices they make for their families and not simply drift with the cultural tide. Egalitarian feminism is satanically devised and an enemy of God and of biblical truth, but the need for care goes beyond this threat. The values of modern society are often at odds with those that accompany a biblical worldview. For example, fathers need to resist the values of individualism at the expense of community, efficiency at the expense of relationships, and material well being at the expense of spiritual progress. The world and sadly the worldly church do cheer many choices that are detrimental to family sanctification. (Rom 12:2; 1Jo 2:15)
In our evil times there is the systematic attack on the timeless truths of biblical patriarchy. This assault includes the movement to sabotage the biblical model of the family, and redefine the very meaning of fatherhood and motherhood, masculinity, femininity, and the parent and child relationship. We need to forcefully defend biblical patriarchy, because it is being actively and viciously attacked by unbelievers and professing Christians alike. Its worst enemy is Egalitarian Feminism, which is a false philosophy that has bred false doctrine in the church and seduced many believers. In conscious opposition to feminism, egalitarianism, and the humanistic philosophies of the present time, the church should proclaim the Gospel centred doctrine of biblical patriarchy as an essential element of God’s ordained pattern for the well being of human relationships and institutions and societies and nations.
Conclusion: Is there hope for our decadent ungodly society?
Well, with God there is ALWAYS hope, but judging from the natural, our society is rotten to the core and too far-gone in decadence to recover. Its doom is at the door to be implemented by heathen nations such as Islam, as God uses every time to punish His wayward children.
Will our nations repent and return to God, like Nineveh? (Jon 3:5-7) Will our lost society come to good senses and return to the God given Patriarchal system for its restoration? Methinks NO! Not without the direct intervention of God. "Repent, therefore, of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you." (Act 8:22)
