Authority Roles in Marriage Part 1 – Wives
Posted by David Wheaton | Saturday, June 23, 2012 | 8:00 am CT
“Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church…” (Ephesians 5:22-23a).
God’s command for wives to “be subject to your own husbands” is one of the most misunderstood, abused, deconstructed, and downright despised concepts in all of Scripture.
Start throwing around words like “help-mate”, “headship”, and “submission” and you’re bound to see stern looks and bristling fur on the backs of necks.
This Saturday on The Christian Worldview, we’ll aim to clarify what God’s command means, and just as importantly, what it doesn’t mean, so that husbands and wives can better glorify God in their marriage and home and actually receive the blessing for doing so.
