This is such an important article for all Christian sisters to read. I know soooooooooooooooooo many women who have gotten married to God-fearing men (or men they perceive to be so) and it’s a disaster. Many of them are steeped in patriarchal nonsense as peddled by their churches. I know of one whose husband could not pick up his own child, when the wife was busy fixing a meal. Their sense of entitlement is often unparalleled. Personally, I would like to marry a God fearing man but more than anything I would like to marry a self aware man, a man who can apply some critical thought to things, a man who has no toxic masculinity and has a lot of emotional intelligence. Thank you for this thoughtful piece Marie :-)

Wazzia, in the first paragraphs I make it extremely clear that I am a child of a god-fearing union and parenting. Now read this again. Peace.

Hey, such a beautiful piece there. Keep it up…but do u mind trying to dig around for the “mind” of that god-fearing man and sharing on such, unbiased of course?

Marie, this is an excellently penned argument. And a message that is necessary for all sisters. It’s a little sad too. But knowing that we know what a scam this god-fearing man narrative is brings hope. Hope that they’ll be “salvation” for most of our generation of womyn if and when we continue to “spread this gospel.”

I keep saying a kind spouse is better than a god-fearing one but I haven’t been able to properly explain what I mean by this. This article is it.

This same message should go to men. What an awesome article…
