Just thinking out loud…
For years I have seen this debate and always without fail framed as a defense.
Is there a way to "put the ball in their court"? …and Perhaps put the MOP on the defensive?
Is there a way to lead with the needs of widows and single women, followed by the obligation of the church?
Perhaps then followed by a discussion of the purposes of marriage.
Why do churches not supply for widows?
Why do men not visit widows and orphans in their affliction? (that sounds like a church ministry)
Why do churches not supply husbands and fathers when they could?
Jas 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
This is a powerful scripture…no wonder churches shy away from the term "religion".
Anywho, I appologize for the stream of consciousness style, but somethings coming into focus. I was thinking some of you might be able to help me nail it down.
