"If it's good enough for the Virgin Mary and Sarah, it's good enough for me."
This is what I'm going to start saying when people bug me about co-sleeping, breastfeeding a toddler and babywearing- I "mis"quote the old revival song, "Give Me that Old Religion"
It's true though- many of our "modern" institutions are not very biblical.
OK, Sarah had a concubine...I know. Not a practice we endorse today. But we don't endorse a lot of practices of Biblical people- though we are good at picking and choosing- different topic, sorry.
Still, how can you say the Virgin Mary, exemplary model of motherhood, and Sarah, matriach of the Jewish people, were wrong????
