Essay by George R. Theiss 

The Importance of Biblical Gender Roles in Society

America's Founding Fathers held to Biblical gender roles in society.  In their day, it was accepted that a woman's role was to be a help to her man.  She was to be a keeper at home and obedient to her own husband.

Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Titus 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Our Founding Fathers realized that a woman, no matter how gifted, was not to teach nor usurp authority over the man.  Since this Biblical command was based on both the order of Creation and the Fall into Sin, it was good for all cultures, in all times of history.

I Timothy 2:11-15  Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 

For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

Men like Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Madison understood that women could not serve as civil magistrates.  To do so would violate the divine order and be harmful to the family, the basic unit of any healthy society. 

Their thinking was clearly drawn from the Protestant Reformation which the Bible had spawned.  John Knox, the great Scottish Reformer, wrote a tract against women rulers, entitled, First Blast of the Trumpet Against the Monstrous Regiment of Women.

He clearly saw the Biblical gender order and roles turned on their head by Mary, Queen of the Scots, Bloody Mary of England, Catherine De'Medici of France and Mary de Loraine.  These women ruled over men in a fickle and often whorish manner.

They all opposed the Protestant Reformation.  Knox pointed men back to the Biblical roles for men and women.  He clearly saw the nobility of the women's role in the home as housewife and mother. 

It was another Scotch Calvinist, John Witherspoon, who later taught many of America's Founding Fathers, including James Madison, the Father of our U.S. Constitution.  New Jersey College (now Princeton University) was founded by Scotch-Irish Presbyterians.

That this was the position of America's Founding Fathers can also be seen by the lack of any female American rulers (civil magistrates) in their time.  It can also be seen in the U.S. Supreme Court Decision of Bradwell v. Illinois.

Bradwell v. Illinois held that the constitution of the family organization is founded in the divine ordinance. That court decision effectively ruled out women serving as lawyers, judges or in any other civil magistrate position.  Women were not to rule over men.

Since then, the feminist movement has sought to erase every vestige of the divine ordinance.  The feminist agenda has led to over 50 million legalized murder of innocent innocents (abortion) since Roe v. Wade. 

It has also led to no-fault divorce, an increase in single mothers, witchcraft openly taught and protected in our public schools and military, and a general breakdown of the family.  The authority of the father in the home is all but lost and society is crumbling.

Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our

For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.

George Theiss is a combat veteran of Vietnam who now follows Lamb of God.  He and his wife Christy have been married 39 years. They have 8 children.
