What are the responsibilities given to Christian wives in Titus 2 and 1 Timothy 5?
In Titus 2, Paul gives specific instructions to be given to the older and younger women of the congregation:
The older women likewise that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to wine, teachers of good things, that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, and submissive to their own husbands. Titus 2:3-5
According to this passage, a wise and godly wife is a keeper at home.
What is a “keeper at home”?
The word in the original Greek is oikouros, (oiko, house or household, ouros, watch, keeper, warden) and refers to someone who tends to the household, watches over it, cares for, and works in it.
The wife is responsible for the running of the household under the headship of her husband (1 Corinthians 11, Ephesians 5).
Nowhere in the New Testament is a woman told to earn the living for the household, but she is commanded to be a good housekeeper/homekeeper and to submit to her husband. Being a keeper at home is one of her highest priorities.
A related word is kepouros, or gardener (kep, garden, ouros, keeper) one who keeps (preserves, watches over, cares for and works in a garden). An oikouros is similar to a gardener in the sense that she is tasked with caring for a household instead of a garden. Someone who keeps a garden is a gardener. Someone who keeps a house is a housekeeper, a keeper of the home.
In his letter to Timothy, Paul gives similar instructions for the young widows of the congregation, and gives insight into the meaning of oikouros.
I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. (1 Timothy 5:14)
The word here that is translated “guide the house” is oikodespotein (oiko, house, despotein, to rule or manage) The root of despotein is despotes; a person in authority, in charge, a lord, lady, master or mistress.
Paul instructs the woman to be the good lady of the house and run the household. This command supports our interpretation of Titus 2 and emphasizes that Paul wants the young Christian woman to be the mistress of the household.
To be the keeper at home, the housekeeper, is biblical, respectable and important work to which women can dedicate themselves and for which they should be praised (Proverbs 31: 28-29).
Various translations of the Bible translate oikouros differently:
*keepers at home (KJV) *workers at home (ESV, NASV) *domestic (RSV), related to the running of the home and family *good managers of their households (NRSV) *having care of the house (Wycliffe) *homemakers (Revised Geneva Translation, new KJV, Amplified) (def. a person, especially a housewife, who manages a home.) *keepers of their own houses (Young’s Literal Translation) *to be busy at home (NIV) *home-lovers (Phillips) *spending their time in their own homes (Living Bible)
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD. Psalm 113:9
The “key” to understanding the world today bears repetition.
The medium of exchange(money, currency, credit) is created out of thin air as a “debt” to a cartel of Masonic ( Cabalist, Satanist) Jewish bankers. This is something government could do itself interest-and-debt-free. Your “money” is really government IOU’s to these central bankers. No matter which bank you use, you’re dealing with them.
History/current events are designed to max out our stolen national credit cards (wars, plandemics) ; kill and enslave the goyim, and protect this credit monopoly by extending it to every aspect of human life (i.e. Communism.)
“We corrupt in order to control,” said Masonic Grand Master Giuseppe Mazzini. “We have taken from the people all the gods of heaven and earth, their religious faith, their faith in monarchy, their honesty and their family values…”
Society has been thoroughly subverted and colonized by this occult power and doesn’t even know it because they control mass media and education. Many Jews andFreemasons are collaborators but everyone who wishes to succeed in public life must become a witting or unwitting accomplice. Modern society is built on quicksand. We are mind-controlled slaves, but thanks to the Internet, more people are waking up.

by Henry Makow Ph.D.
In 1913, Congressman Charles August Lindbergh said: “When the President signs this bill; the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized…The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill…The day of reckoning is only a few years removed.”
The establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank in 1913 set off a chain of baneful events that blighted the 20th century and darkens our prospects for the 21st. It began with the World Wars and the Great Depression, and continues with 9-11 and the wars on Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Ukraine.
In 1913, America’s leaders were bribed and bamboozled by mostly foreign bankers and their US agents. Our “leaders” committed treason by giving these bankers the power to create money out of thin air backed only by the credit, i.e. taxes, of the American people.
The U.S. government now borrows its own money from international bankers and pays them interest to the tune of $400 billion per annum for the privilege.
If you hoodwinked the United States in this fashion, what would you do?
You would either give the magical power back to its rightful owner, the US government.
Or, you would use it to take over the world, own everything and to control everyone.
Guess which choice the bankers made?
Modern history displays a long-term plan by dynastic banking families and their allies to create an Orwellian World dictatorship (“New World Order”) in which wealth will be further concentrated, and human life will be further degraded.
Wars and depressions, pandemics and “vaccines,” modern art and culture, gender dysphoria, sexual “liberation” and feminism, are all part of this design. The role of historians and the mass media is to obscure this plan and to beguile the masses into thinking they are free and their leaders represent their interests.

FDR EXPOSED BY SON-IN-LAW
This conviction was reinforced by Col. Curtis Dall’s book, “FDR: My Exploited Father-in-Law”(1970). Dall, who was married to Franklin Roosevelt’s daughter Anna, spent many nights at the White House and often guided FDR around in his wheelchair. He was also a partner at a Wall Street brokerage.
Dall maintained a family loyalty but could not avoid several disheartening conclusions in his book. He portrays the legendary president not as a leader but as a “quarterback” with little actual power.
The “coaching staff” consisted of a coterie of mostly Jewish handlers (“advisers” like Louis Howe, Bernard Baruch and Harry Hopkins) who represented the international banking cartel. For Dall, FDR ultimately was a traitor manipulated by “World Money” and motivated by conceit and personal ambition.
FDR’s main perfidy was suppressing information about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, at the cost of almost 3,000 lives. He did this because the bankers needed US involvement in WWII, something 85% of Americans opposed. The Japanese had instructions to call off the attack if they lost the element of surprise.
Dall relates a less known but more telling anecdote.
In 1956, George Earle, left, a former governor of Pennsylvania, told him that in 1943 the Nazis tried to surrender. At the time, Earle was Naval Attache in Istanbul when Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, head of the German Secret Service, approached him personally.
Canaris told him that the German generals felt Hitler was leading Germany to destruction. They could not accept Roosevelt’s policy of “unconditional surrender,” but if FDR would offer “honourable surrender,” the army was prepared to stage a coup d’etat.
They believed that Russia represented a threat to Western Civilization and they were ready to present a non-Nazi German bulwark against Communist designs in Eastern Europe.
To make a long story short, FDR repeatedly ignored this proposal which could have ended the war in 1943 and saved millions of lives. Canaris and hundreds of other decent German officers were later tortured and killed by the Gestapo.
The bankers’ policy, as exhibited by the fire bombing of German cities, was clearly to 1) prolong the war and inflict maximum damage on Germany, 2) ensure that Soviet Russia occupy Eastern Europe and become a major world power.
Frankly, I can’t believe what weenies Canaris and the German generals were. They didn’t need Allied approval to depose Hitler. They could have done it and continued the war if necessary.Didn’t any of them realize that Hitler was a “British” agent???
COMMUNISM AS MODEL OF MANKIND’S FUTURE
The banking cartel acted as if Communist Russia was their personal creation, which it was. One of FDR’s first acts in office was to recognize the Soviet regime. FDR advisers Henry Morgenthau and Harry Dexter White arranged for U.S. treasury printing plates to be sent to Russia so the Communists could print their own US money. They arranged $8 billion in lend lease aid to Russia after the war was over. Col. Dall personally confronted Louis Howe over Russian agents he saw meeting Howe in the White House.
According to Antony Sutton (“Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution“), the Bolshevik Revolution was funded by international bankers. In 1917, Trotsky and 200 revolutionaries were literally transferred from New York’s Lower East Side to St. Petersburg to foment the revolution.
What are we to make of all this?
We have to recognize that monopoly capitalism and Communism have an affinity. Both are enemies of competition and freedom. A Communist government can give the cartels control of raw materials and markets. It can provide huge contracts and take on huge debts. A Communist government can ensure social control in order to protect the concentration of wealth. The US economy is now controlled by a handful of cartels. We are facing Communism with private instead of public monopoly.
Is it a coincidence that the Communist Party term “politically correct” has entered the American lexicon?
