To say a woman should not work outside of the home is ludicrous. That is a very personal decision to be made by each family. Each family must do what is best. Let's consider the "ideal" wife from Proverbs 31, who was a merchant, trader, investor, and worked hard to provide for her family, as well as raising children:
From Proverbs 31:
She buys farm land, farms, and makes profits. She uses what she grows to produce merchandise to sell in the marketplace:
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
In the New Testament, there are examples of woman with a household working:
Consider Acts 16:
13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.
14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
Lydia produced and sold purple fabric. She worked and made money to help support her household.
Consider Acts 18, where Paul meets with Aquila and Pricella who were both tentmakers by trade:
After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;
2 And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.
3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.
Genesis 29:9. Rachel was a shepherd.
8 And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together, and till they roll the stone from the well's mouth; then we water the sheep.
9 And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep; for she kept them.
I can go on and on, but there are MANY examples in the Bible where women worked to help earn income for the family. NOWHERE in the Bible is this criticized. Women in the Bible worked in agriculture, as shepherds, as tailors, manufacturers of linen and cloths, made and sold perfume, were nurses, cooks, managers of households, tent-makers, artisans, etc.
Families work together as units. The Bible teaches that men and women should not be idle, but be hard workers, in whatever role they are in.
I realize all of these were mentioned. But the author states that nowhere in the Bible does it say these women worked outside of the home. However, nowhere in the Bible does it say that they worked only in the home either, that is a simple inference on the part of the author. The functioned and worked within society they way society was structured. That is what we can see in this.
Now, I am not saying a woman should not stay home either. My wife stays home for now, and plans to go to work when our children are school aged. I am saying each family should do what is best for their family. No one should feel guilty for working hard to provide for their family and doing what is necessary to feed, cloth and shelter their family and raise children.
Almost convincing except that every example you provide is of women working "from the home" and not leaving children to others to raise or to putting themselves under the subjection of men OTHER than their husbands.
This is the point you are missing but hey do what you want. Sin is a personal thing alright, you did get that part correct. We are all expert at justifying the convenience of living in the flesh. No judgement here brothers, my name ain't wretched for nothing.
