Asking the Wrong Questions about Patriarchy

This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.  But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless (Titus 3:8-9).

Asking all the wrong questions is an unprofitable and useless endeavor.   Yet, in every wrong question and its wrong answer, people find hills to die on.  Fight to the death is what too many do and we end up bleeding the Body of Christ with words that hurt, wounds that endure, and worthless controversy that the Bible says is harmful, unprofitable, useless, and completely futile.  Why do we do this?

In this first installment of Asking the Wrong Questions, we’ll be considering the wrong question, “Is patriarchy God’s design for women?” 

 The short answer is Yes and No.  Patriarchy is God’s design for all of us, yet not as we practice it in our culture.
