Teach the Young Women!

'Teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children' it says in Titus 2:4 but how often is this command carried out or is it more often swept under the carpet for fear of the backlash of Ms Independent.

If the Bible were written in the year 2010 do you think that this verse would have been omitted? Is it still necessary? Is it relevant to the lives of the young women of the 21st Century to be taught how to be sober, how to love their husbands and their children? Do the young women of today really need this I mean they have the mental aptitude to run fortune 500 companies so why on earth do they need to be taught something as simple as how to love their very own families? So what is this all about then?

If you read on the scripture goes further to say ' To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed'. The key to this way of living is in the very last section, so that God's name is kept in honour. God is not about inequality and injustice, in fact He is totally against such things (Gal 3:28 there is neither bond nor free, male nor female etc). So these verses of scripture were not written to put women down, quite the contrary. A home that's foundations are rooted in love is a home where each member is truly liberated and is free to express themselves and be all they were meant to be to reach their God given potential.
