These are not words often found in the vocabulary of a modern woman. In fact most modern women are taught to reject such ideals. They are equal to men. They are liberated and free from subordination.
Yet, God’s Word commands us to lay aside the modern definition of liberation and embrace His plan and design for our lives; realizing that His plan for marriage was one of protection. The man is submitted to God the Father and those in authority over him (his employer, pastor and governing authorities). The woman is submitted to her husband. Children are submitted to their parents.
And when this authority structure is in proper order, every part is protected.
Sadly today many older women instruct the younger women to embrace their liberty, freedom and equality!
However, women’s liberation didn’t stop at equality. It has run roughshod over men. When you look at movies, sitcoms and commercials men are fat, lazy and stupid oafs who watch TV and drink beer while women are skinny, smart, in shape, and have found their place in the corporate world.
As my dad says, “The most discriminated person in American right now is the white balding male with a bit of a belly.”
The first step to embracing submissive obedience is to reject today’s image of the male species. Never before have men been so disrespected as they are now.
We are so blind to the fact that we view them as many men used to view women.
Women are superior in mind and body while men are have a lesser ability for obtaining knowledge beyond football and auto mechanics.
God created man in His image; therefore to look at men through this distorted prism is to view God and His creative work as the same!
In this position she has the ability to possess and share her opinions on household matters; with the understanding that she does not have the right to the last word. She must relinquish that right to the one to whom it was given by right of his position – her husband.
companionship and respect
Do I really obey?
When he makes a decision I do not agree with, how do I respond?
When he corrects the children differently than I would, do I correct him?
When he puts his foot down on a matter and assumes his authority as the head of the home by telling me what I should do, do I suddenly feel an urge to rebel?
