Since almighty God is the sovereign Creator and Preserver of His people and all institutions that bring blessings to mankind, including the Church and the family, they deserve to be honored in humble obedience to Scripture. God alone, according to His authority revealed in the Scriptures, has set the prescribed patterns for the people of God, including regulations for worship, the family, government, gender roles, assignment of responsibilities, or any other normative patterns. All attempts to refashion or redefine any of God’s prescribed regulations ought to be rejected as vain imaginations of fallen humanity to abrogate God’s Lordship over His Church and all created institutions (Gen. 1:28; Pss. 46:1; 77:13-15; 95:6-7; 100:3; 119:73; Prov. 18:10; Matt. 16:18; 19:6; John 14:15; Col. 1:16-17; James 1:17; 1 Peter 4:19).
