I was talking with a good friend of mine the other day and the subject of headship came up.
I believe that the Bible clearly shows that the man is the head of the family.
However, I don't believe the society portrays that headship in a correct fashion.
In my opinion the society really endorses a type of headship that doesn't really square with the teachings of the Bible.
As my fade has progressed (remember we're talking several years here) my style of headship has changed very little. I've never been a domineering head who bossed his wife around and made hard and fast rules for the family, but, before the fade started, I felt like I could if I needed to and sometimes even felt that I wasn't a very good head because I was too soft.
Now, I feel like I'm a good head of the family and that pretty much the way I've been doing it does square with the bible's viewpoint. Now I can be the head I was but without the guilt.
I'm looking for what others here think the Bible describes for the actions of the head of the family. Or if you feel the Bible doesn't give man the headship in the family arrangment.
