Bow down WOMAN..... Posted on 05-18-2005
Stealth

What do you all think about wives submitting themselves to their own husbands. Sometimes some people take the scripture in ephesians 5:22 out of context. A while ago after hearing Elder Johnny James comment on it I was enlightened ever more about the scripture. I already knew that the scripture was only referring to married women, of course, and that it was clarifying that wives need to submit to their OWN husbands. As I look up a verse I also see that we ought to submit ourselves one to another. So what I'm seeing is that we should each submit in our own way, in our roles in marriage. So with all that being said what do you all think about "submitting" to your husband when marriage arrives?

I feel like I will never submit myself to anyone...or at least not to a point where I feel like they've got control over me or they're in charge. I dont like the whole man of the household scenario.. I will indeed be that loyal and faithful loving wife for my husband of course... but I believe that things should always be 50/50 give and take and never one-sided.

This topic has been done before but i'll still comment. I honestly think people take that scripture out of context to make it benefit them. Just like ministers preach on the subject but never teach that the couple must also submit onto each other. As far as me submitting to my husband...The more it has been explained to me, the more comfortable i am admitting that i will submit. BUT he has to do the same.

yeah i agree with the stank that people manipulae this verse in order to take advantage of female folk... the Bible also says that you're suppose to love your wife as you love yourself...and that you're suppose to be what Christ is to the Church to your wife...i dunno if i expressed that properly... Chirst doesn't bop the church upset the head and call them a whore if they don't do right...Christ shows the example of how to be a good human and how to please God in your life and walk...Chirst is suppose to be the example of what God wants us to be...and this is what the male is suppose to do as head of his household...he is suppose to be what Chirst is to the church... but a husband is suppose to love his wife as himself (that's what the Book says)...it says nothing about slapping her upside the head and making her do the dishes...you're suppose to love her and treat her as if she's apart of your own body...it says nothing about you dominating her or about seeing if she can take a punch or not... and a woman is to respect her husband out of love...(the Bible never actually says "Woman, love your husband...")...a woman shows her love for her husband according to the Bible by repecting him and his leadership... ths husband was designed by God to lead...the question is what kind of leader is he? ladies, if you don't feel that you can trust or repect his leadership because of his incompetence, you shouldn't have married his ass in the first place... and there can't be 2 heads of the house...this is liberalism and feiminsm (sp) at it's worst...are there 2 Chirst in the church? when you have 2 heads, it's not gonna work....man was designed by god to lead, and he should be the leader or else it ain't gonna work, ya dig? 8-) (evy)

First, i'd like to say that this is subjective. Just because you may not have seen the words " woman, love your husband", in the bible doesn't mean that she shouldn't love him. Secondly,i don't think you're in any position to attack someone elses beliefs. Everytime, these subjects come up you go on a rampage about liberals and such. Why do you concern yourself that much with their lives? Why is feminist a problem for you? Do you feel threatened?

i may get it for this one, but i do feel that women should submit themselves to their husbands, to a point. it is the mans job to lead and take care of his family, just as society has changed so has the households. even though a man is supposed to take care of the family and be the head of the household the backbone(the wife) has taken a more prevalent role in the family. but i dont feel that she should get her head knocked off for nothing or be made a slave in her own home. thats just my opinion

I agree. But before u can submit to each other properly u submit to God and both parties fall in to their roles smoothly. A lot of men go with the cave man notion...it's much more detailed.

i think he is threatened, but anyway... i did make this topic before, and i dont feel like getting to deep into this. i dont know about the whole submitting thing. i dont feel that anybody should have control over me but God. yes i read the scriptures, but society has changed since those days. now until someone can explain to me why i should do otherwise, this is where i stand.
