Biblically, men are ultimately accountable to God for the stewardship of their wives, their families, governments and nations. God created Adam first, placed him in the garden to take care of it, and had him name the animals. All this was completed before He created Eve to be Adam’s helpmate. Men are commanded to love their wives as Christ loved the Church, a sacrificial love that spiritually makes her holy [Ephesians 5:25] in the way Christ makes the Church holy. It is not something to grasped in a man’s feeble mind, nevertheless it’s true. It is also something most men are not taught. The gravity of this calling can be overwhelming if you truly consider it. It is an impossible task without being submitted to Christ. Men would be wise to embrace their ordained role because God isn’t changing His mind based upon our priorities or what culture dictates.
America is a unique nation in having documents based upon biblical precepts. Regardless of whether one is a Christian or has any allegiance to God at all, our Constitution and Bill of Rights have proven to be the most liberating form of government ever instituted by man. It is worth preserving. In the end, we each will face God to answer for the stewardship of our relationships and roles, not someone else’s responsibilities. But insofar as the responsibility to God for families, governments and nations, it will be men whom God will hold accountable.
