[Editor’s Note: Making an idol of family is to place creation above the creator. This is as poor a solution as idolizing women, i.e. feminism. Eberstadt is mistaken. Creation does testify of a creator but the Creator came first. Scripture plainly states, In the beginning God…God created the family. The family didn’t create God; it also doesn’t create faith in God. “It is Christ who saves through faith” as B. B. Warfield puts it,
“The saving power resides exclusively, not in the act of faith or the attitude of faith or in the nature of faith, but in the object of faith.”
Faith is exclusively God’s. He blesses our obedience. It is not a wonder that the blessing of a greater degree of faith and knowledge of him coincides with our obedience as we walk according to His will, i.e. marrying how he said we should marry, having children how he said we should have children, raising families how He said we should raise families.
God existed first and when we find God through “committed human love” (a strange phrase meaning biblically defined heterosexual marriage) it is because God reveals himself in His creation. Rom. 1:20
Humanism will never save the human “species” read mankind. Whether woman lead or man lead and that is a takeaway point from this article. Women becoming like unregenerate men accomplishes nothing good with much devastating consequences. The biggest takeaway point is Jesus Christ must be head and men and women alike who have bowed the knee to Him will find their place in their God ordained jurisdictions, complimenting each other, establishing His kingdom and the blessed fruit of His reign.]
Writing for The Atlantic in September of 2012, Hanna Rosin argued that the “hookup culture” so prevalent on college campuses and in the lives of young adults is “an engine of female progress—one being harnessed and driven by women themselves.” She wrote:
To put it crudely, feminist progress right now largely depends on the existence of the hookup culture. And to a surprising degree, it is women not men—who are perpetuating the culture, especially in school, cannily manipulating it to make space for their success, always keeping their own ends in mind. For college girls these days, an overly serious suitor fills the same role an accidental pregnancy did in the 19th century: a danger to be avoided at all costs, lest it get in the way of a promising future.
In other words, women have succeeded in becoming the men they hated.
