  1. Actually, that is exactly what the Bible teaches the woman to do. It is unbiblical for a man to believe those things. But, if he is an unbeliever in the Word or if he is misguided in his belief, Christ gave the example by submitting himself to Pilate in exactly that way. As did Daniel, and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and many others in the Old and New Testaments. God FIRST gave the principle of submission, even when we believe our authority is unfair. THEN he told wives to submit. The New Testament even explained why a wife should submit to an unbeliever. Pop-culture, Oprah Winfrey style cartoon admonitions are not a substitute for understanding the truth of the Bible. God hasn’t changed and neither has his directives of what works and doesn’t work.

  2. Read CAREFULLY! BEFORE telling wives to submit to their husbands & husbands to love their wives, ALL is prefaced with:

    Ephesians 5:21
    * Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ.*

    A husband is EQUALLY called to submit to his wife as she is to him out of reverance to Christ. If he is not reverant to Christ, a woman is to continue to submit to Christ and obey Him above and beyond the man who refuses submission to her & Christ.

    If you do not believe this is a conditional clause, kindly think again.
