Feminists Will Hate This

Even a lot of Christian women will hate this post.  It is on the subject of submission and obedience.  If you aren't a believer, maybe you shouldn't even read it...

I have seen through writing this blog that many women detest the idea of submission and obedience to their husbands.  They even say that those words are not in the original Greek thereby, not true for today.  Oh my!  I don't even want to debate them on that one.  I am just going to let God's Word do the convicting ~

That they may teach the young women to be...obedient to their own husbands...
Titus 2:4,5

Thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee
Genesis 3:16

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
I Corinthians 11:3

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church:  and he is the saviour of the body.  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 
Ephesians 5:22-24

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
Ephesians 5:31

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord
Colossians 3:18

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands;  that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation {way of life} of their wives
I Peter 3:1

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life
Proverbs 31:12

A man will resist with all his might those who come against him.  Most women spend their whole married lives in conflict with their husbands, trying to change them.  It is a battle of the wills that no woman has ever rightly won, for even if she gets his compliance, she loses his heart, and he loses his self-respect.

When a woman resists or tries to change a man, she makes him more stubborn, and her own heart will be filled with bitterness.  If a woman obeys God, a man does not have anything to come against, to resist, to dominate, to conquer, or to beat down.  A woman's greatest power is in obeying God through obeying and honoring her husband.  {Debi Pearl}
