Women and Children First? A Tale of Two Ships

The tragic sinkings of the two ships Titantic and Lusitania reveal two very different stories.  On the Titantic, many men gave up their seats for women and children.  This was not the case on the Lusitania.  In today’s post-modern culture, the traditional assumptions about men and their responsibilities toward women are under assault.  On today’s show, Dr. Mohler argues that men should give up their seats for women and children because such action glorifies God and is deeply embedded in our moral make-up.  While completely counter to the present feministic understandings, the Scriptures clearly teach that men and women were created equal but with distinct roles to the glory of God.
