Re: Do husbands have authority over their wives?

Oct. 26 at 8:39pm | see this comment in context

Similar questions around my marriage have brought me here. I must agree with only those who see the Godhead of authority as the best family model. The creator knew what would work best; that a husband and wife be accountable to each other, and maintain a purity - that exposes the world's ever-indescent appitites. A husband must give himself for his wife's every need - with understanding - but also with firmness of logical leadership, not tyranny. A wife should depend on her husband's leadership, not tyranny, leadership and avert any struggle for the wheel - thus causing confusion and rebellion. By all means - choose your husbands well. Choose your wives well and trust God before and after the occasional argument. Even our Lord Jesus Christ pointed every man and woman to the leadership of God the Father - for our salvation. He had authority solely because He Himself was under authority! And let us not forget that Satan only recognizes order and a godly standard - not loose-fitted partnerships -- that can fail to compromise. Thus, the principal stands - a head cannot live without a body and a body cannnot function without it's head. 

Stay informed
