Authority Roles in Marriage Part 1b – Wives
Posted by David Wheaton | Thursday, June 28, 2012 | 9:35 pm CT
“Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them” (Colossians 3:18-19).
Last week on The Christian Worldview, we discussed “authority roles in marriage” with respect to wives. The principle for wives to be “subject” to their husbands may be clear in Scripture, but how to practically apply this in the myriad of situations and circumstances that wives encounter takes plenty of wisdom.
That is why we are doing a Part 1b on authority roles in marriage for wives this Saturday. We will be joined by Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of the popular book, “The Excellent Wife”. She will talk about how wives should interact with the “dominator” husband and the “abdicator” husband, and how a wife can avoid becoming a “usurper” or “manipulator” (my terms).
And finally, Martha will be taking your phone calls and answering those sticky issues that invariably arise between husbands and wives in marriage. So be sure to tune in to The Christian Worldview as we discuss more about wives … and also some about the Supreme Court decision on health care that came down this week. Twila Brase, president of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom and who was in the Supreme Court when the decision was released, will join us for that.
