Baptists/THE BIBLICAL ORDER OF MEN AND WOMEN IN THE FAMILY AND THE CHURCH

Question
Hi Ps. Copper,

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Due to some conflicting outlook on the role of men and women in the church; myself and my wife had a little misunderstanding. But nothing major.

I'm a strong advocate of men leadership. But I preach to my wife God's and His kingdom needs 1st than the family. Example, I'm a church board member, Service Director, Homeschool Board member, Men Fellowship leader.

Meanwhile my wife, Worship leader, Women fellowship leader, Homeschool teacher, etc.

My wife mentioned to me that she's designed to be my helper so husband, children and home is her primary role. Thereafter is the church and church needs. He quoted all the scripture to defend her stand.

Since, we are from a small congregational church, everyone required to work hand in hand. So I told her, as we place God and His kingdom needs He will not short change us. But she still feels her primary role purported by the Maker is the most vital one.

So what's your view on the above mentioned; I'm saying God and His Kingdom 1st. Don't worry about husband, Children and Home. She's saying Husband, Children and Home 1st than the church need.

Regards,
Joshua

Answer
Hi Joshua,
    I have had the flu and been in bed for the past week.  I am trying to get caught up on my e-mail and work.
    I have an article at http://bible-truth.org/Biblicalordermenwomen.html which addresses you question and gives the biblical answer.
    In a nut shell...God does not call women to be in positions over their husbands or over other males.   God has set order in the family and church.   
    If you have further questions please write.
