As I read all the uproar of what is wrong with men and how many are trying to fix them (particularly women) I have come to the conclusion that the solution lies with fixing the women. I know this is not the current thought.

Starting in Genesis, the woman’s curse beyond difficulty in child birth was for her desiring her husband’s place. That’s what is going on now. With the so-called liberation of women, they now pursue careers instead of marriage and family competing and defeating men in the new business environment. Legalized infanticide is their holy grail because it allows both women and men to escape marriage and continue their careers.

Men by nature want to protect and take care of women, not compete with them. And today’s churches are deathly afraid of preaching about the Titus 2 woman. “…the older women likewise be reverent in behavior, not slanders, not given to much wine, teachers of good things- that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.”

(Just as an aside, note how many women talk about they need wine to make it through the day.)

Men’s role in this is they need to be more picky in choosing their wives. Beyond being a Christian they should look for women who seek to be Titus 2 women instead of Genesis 3 women.

This will take a sea change.
