Proverbs 31 Woman a "Career Gal"?

I was reading through Voddie Baucham's blog and came upon one of his post with the title listed above. I found it very insightful and truthful. I also am not against women working when they have to in such cases as he listed:

"....women who find themselves abandoned by sinful, self centered, immature, and/or irresponsible men (both the father of their children and their own fathers), and thus literally have no choice but to work and provide for their children. Nor do I fault women whose husbands have been disabled for one reason or another for having to become breadwinners."


He goes on to contest the thought of the "Career" woman and how our culture today wants to paint the Proverbs 31 Woman as such. You can read the full post here:

"The ‘career woman’ argument is an absolute stretch. Especially when we recognize the irrefutable hermeneutical principal that Scripture interprets Scripture. Thus, we cannot use Proverbs 31 to negate Titus 2. Whatever the Proverbs 31 woman teaches us, she cannot teach that which would contradict the direct command for women to be “keepers (or workers) at home.” (Tutus 2:5, 1 Timothy 5:14)"


*Also, I never stated I was not voting Republican. I would never vote Democrat because of what they support: Abortion, Homosexuality, More Government Control, etc. In Politics, you have to choose the "lesser" evil and that leaves McCain. I do not support his pick of a woman for the VP slot. Also, his health is in not so good condition, he is older and I would not like the idea of having a woman ruling our Nation, if McCain was to pass away during office. She also has several children and they need her but she has chosen other things as more important than her God-given role. She has a daughter under her roof who is pregnant out of wedlock. She has a child born not too long ago with Down Syndrome, who will need extra care, time and attention but Mommy will be doing more important things than take care of her son. She seems like a nice lady and I think she can speak very well, but that doesn't make her right, Biblically speaking. However Politics is Politics.......no matter who wins, God is STILL in CONTROL! I will not worry, fear or fret over who gets the office because I'm in God's hands and he will never forsake me and my family or any of His children!

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
