Leave it to the Female Imperative-worshipping feminists to not only turn Biblical doctrine on its head, but actually find a sacred and holy purpose to female sin:
- A poor excuse for a man and husband does something (often something mysterious) to make his wife unhaaappy.
- As a result, the wife lashes out, very often in a way that threatens the family.
- Her sinful actions, while of course not sanctioned, turn out to be just the ticket required to shake her complacent husband into attention and get him to seek out God.
- His seeking out God, (triggered by her lack of submission), fixes their marriage, makes him a better man, and brings them both to God.
I’m pretty relaxed about women who are unwilling to submit to their husbands, for much the same reason I’m relaxed about atheists who are unwilling to submit to God. First, because they will inevitably reap the consequences of their foolishness. Second, because they don’t have to answer to me concerning their stubbornness, they have to answer to God.
That being said, actively teaching women that being rebellious in marriage is a good and divinely sanctioned act is downright evil. Stay well away from any church or wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing who perverts the Bible in this manner.
The answer to the purported dilemma often raised is absolutely simple. Christian women not infrequently to ask: “Do I have to submit to a husband who [insert various moral failing or perceived flaw here].” Yes. Next question.
Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.
– 1 Peter 3: 1-2
I understand many, perhaps most, women don’t like that. I don’t like the fact that I can’t split the skull of everyone who annoys me either. But I don’t make the rules. If you don’t like them, then follow the example of Lucifer and take it up with the Rulegiver.
