That they may teach the young women to be ... keepers at home, ... that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Introduction

This subject causes a great deal of conflict in our country today.  During New Testament times and even during our country's colonial times, society was structured in such a way that women really didn't have much choice except to be keepers at home.  Our modern world has certainly changed that.

Last year (2005) more women graduated with college degrees than men.  More and more women are entering the work force than ever before.  Our country allows people to do whatever they please regarding their careers and more and more women are choosing to have one.  Titus 2:5 says that the younger women are "To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."  We shouldn't expect the world to be interested in keeping God's word because they care nothing for it.  However, we as Christians cannot violate the word of God with out consequences. 

Both Christian and non-Christian families who have working mothers are suffering consequences from God.  Look at divorce rates, look at the turmoil that permeates the homes in our society, consider how common adultery has become in our society.  All of this cannot be blamed on women in the work place entirely but this is one symptom of the cause and we will take time to treat it here.
