Christian views on dating and courtship

There are two important aspects about Christian Patriarchy.

Many in the Christian Patriarchy movement reject college for girls, and the Stay At Home Daughter movement is growing.Christian Patriarchy fails to recognize the huge diversity within each gender, and pushes people into prescribed slots based on their genitals rather than seeing people as individuals first.The vast, vast majority of Christians do not hold to the teachings of Christian Patriarchy. This list is NOT meant to be a “checklist,” a “pass-or-fail-test,” or an in depth parental evaluation. My husband, James Mc Donald, created the following questions for the purpose of getting to know potential suitors for our daughters.Once he becomes a man, a son no longer need to be under male authority, and he becomes the male authority for his wife and children.

Some families in Christian Patriarchy have trouble completely letting go of their sons, however, and there is in some circles the idea that even an adult son should be obedient to, or at least highly respective of, his father’s desire.

This is where you get Geoff Botkin’s 200 Year Plan (also known as Multigenerational Faithfulness).

Conclusion The most important thing to remember about Christian Patriarchy is its emphasis on a hierarchical family order, which it regards as the natural order ordained by God.

This obedience is absolute; a woman is only excused from obeying if her male authority orders her to do something illegal and immoral (some dispute this, and argue that she is still required to obey, but that God won’t hold her accountable for any sins she commits at the order of her male authority).

Under Christian Patriarchy, the framework in this verse is extended to women in general.

In a nutshell, Christian Patriarchy is the belief that God has ordained a specific family order, and that this family order must be followed.
