About This Book:

This book is a doctrinal manifesto. Its aim and purpose is to produce what many modern writers are fond of referring to as a paradigm shift. The goal is to lay the foundation for the establishment of a truly biblical social order, especially within the community of Bible-believing, Christ-honoring families. The subject matter is patriarchy and the biblical exposition contained herein is devoted to establishing the proposition that it is patriarchy which is and was mandated by God ever since the original creation of man and woman.

This work is vulnerable to being misperceived as a work primarily about polygamy since the bulk of the exposition centers around that subject. But read carefully. Note the flow of the argumentation. The biblical exposition on polygamy here serves a supporting role to the fundamental proposition of God-ordained and mandated patriarchy. In terms of this thesis, it is a secondary and subsidiary point - which is not to say that it is not important as a subject in its own right.

There are a multitude within the ranks of the Evangelical churches who are rightly and justifiably dismayed at the encroachment of feminist ideology as a subversive factor within Christendom and who are formally in favor of the biblical mandate of male headship within the Family and the Church. Sadly, almost all of the responses and reactions to this encroachment are fundamentally compromised with feminism in one way or another. This present work rejects all such compromise.

A complete Scripture Index and a Topical Index are included.

From the Back Cover

From the back cover:

“For by a secret law of nature, things that stand chief love to be singular; but things that are subject are set under, not only one under one, but, if the system of nature or society allow, even several under one, not without becoming beauty. For neither hath one slave so several masters, in the way that several slaves have one master. Thus we read not that any of the holy women served two or more living husbands; but we read that many females served one husband, when the social state of the nation allowed it, and the purpose of the time persuaded it: for neither is it contrary to the nature of marriage. For several females can conceive from one man: but one female cannot from several men (such is the power of things principal) as many souls are rightly made subject to one God.”   —St. Augustine 
 
“We should not assume that our ways are normal and that God’s ways are an abnormality which needs vindication.”  —Greg Bahnsen, Theonomy in Christian Ethics 
 
“The continued obligation of the Levitical law on this subject is also recognized in the New Testament. This recognition is involved in the constant reference to the law of Moses as the law of God. If in any of its parts or specifications it is no longer obligatory, that is to be proved...If God gives a law to men, those who deny its perpetual obligation are bound to prove it. The presumption is that it continues in force until the contrary is proved. It must be hard to prove that the laws founded on the permanent social relations of men were intended to be temporary.”  —Charles Hodge, Systematic Theology

Now with a Bible Index and a Topical Index.

New Book: They Shall Be One Flesh

Dear readers:

Just a note to let everyone understand that “They Sall Be One Flesh” is a book IN PROGRESS and is not the finished version. This book is being written essentially in public before your eyes. Feedback of any kind is welcome, including proofreading observations.
Thanks.
Tom Shipley

The simple fact of the matter is, the Church to this day has NEVER developed a systematic and biblically faithful doctrine of sex and marriage. Readers may find it incredulous that a subject of such import should have suffered such neglect.

Yes, I know, the bookshelves of modern Christian bookstores are replete with "practical" treatments of husband/wife relations and "how-to" manuals from a Christian perspective. Marriage seminars abound. Christian radio and television and internet websites go on for 24 hours a day on the subject. Josh McDowell fills stadiums full of men who come home with a zeal to do it God's way. Yet, for all this, there is, and always has been, a curious dearth of solid doctrinal treatments of the subject. To my way of thinking, this is a positive scandal.

... Have we allowed unbiblical, non-biblical and anti-biblical systems of thought to corrupt our doctrines of sex and marriage?

As I have pointed out in Volume 1 of this series, the modern Church is way off base in all its major branches concerning the doctrines of patriarchy and polygyny. As a consequence, the Church is compromised in its approach to and handling of modern feminism, as well as its understanding of the biblical definition of adultery. The legacy of ancient pagan Rome is still very much with us today. We in the West are their direct lineal descendants in more than one way. We ARE their children.

This Volume and the one that preceded it is offered to the Church as a belated treatment of the subjects at hand—I say belated because Athanasius or Augustine or Luther, good Biblicists of the past, should have provided such a work to the Church long ago. It is long past time to cast off the yoke of Rome.

"If a man has two wives..." Deut. 21:15

What is God talking about here? Is polygamy Biblical?

If God's Law is a reflection of His holy, perfect character then why do most churches still teach that having more than one wife is wrong?  Is it a sin?  "Well, no," they admit, it is not, but they nevertheless insist that it is wrong to have more than one wife.  So is there another standard of right and wrong from some other god? 

These and other tough questions are addressed in this exciting new book by Tom Shipley and the Institute for Christian Patriarchy.

This book, Man and Woman in Biblical Law, lays the foundation for the long-awaited reconstruction of the family in terms of what the Bible teaches.

For the first time in history the doctrine of the family is systematically explained.

Find out the surprising truth of what the Biblie says about marriage.

How could Christianity have swept this issue under the rug for so long?

Tom Shipley - Doctor of Patriarchy

Never before has the world needed Biblical patriarchy as it does now.  Thank God for Tom Shipley to teach us this doctrine.

A "Doctor" is one who knows his doctrine so well that he is able to teach it qualitatively.  Usually a man is only able to be a true doctor in one area since the field of knowledge is so great that one can only be truly knowledgable in one area.  So Tom is quite specific in the doctrine that he teaches.  It is not the practice of Biblical patriarchy (from now on I will simply says patriarchy since any non-Biblical patriarchy is adulterated patriarchy) that Tom teaches but rather its Biblical legitimacy and exposition.

Now, there are many so called doctors of divinity and theology in the world who ought to teach the same thing as Tom does on the subject of patriarchy.  After all, the truth can not be at odds with itself.  But they do not and are in fact at odds with Tom on this.  So who is doctoring the the truth here?

What does "doctoring the truth" mean?  It mean perverting the purity of the truth about something does it not?  This is what false teachers do - they doctor the doctrines of God rather than keeping them, and teaching them, and defending them inviolate.  They profess falsehood when they do so do they not?  They are thus witnessing falsely before men.  Will Christ profess them to the father and advocate their case before Him? No he will not.

Do you bear proudly the title of Doctor and bask in the glow of respect from men given this title?  Did you proudly wear the robes that confer dignity and honor on a person deemed worthy of the position of keeper, teacher, and defender of the truth? Do ministers of the Word of God look to you for guidance on how they should minister to the flock of God's people? Beware of the judgment that awaits you if you judge wrongly in this matter.
