It is clear to me that Bret Stephens does not have a clue about what it means to be a man of God. Men of God do not terrorize their women. They love them as Christ loves the church and gave his life for them. He loves the Lord and is obedient to His Word. He loves his wife enough to put her feelings first. He doesn’t want there to even be the appearance of anything immoral.
Ephesians 5:3 tells us, “But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity…because these are improper for God’s holy people.” Anything that even “hints” of sexual immorality is inappropriate for a Christian.
I believe that Mike Pence follows the “Billy Graham Rule” This rule is craftings a strategy for integrity that all men of God should have. The rule states that you would not eat, travel, or otherwise spend time alone with someone of the opposite sex while on the road. Mike Pence is doing this to honor his wife and their marriage as a man of God. He also does it to protect the other women that he meets with.
He doesn’t say that he will not take a meeting with these women. He does say that his wife will be present for them as well. I agree with Mike Pence and I am so happy that we have a man of God as our Vice President.
