A friend shares a Bible verse. This friend does that a lot. The verse is Ephesians 5:22-24 .
EVERY time I see this passage shared, some nasty woman feels an obligation to mention "abuse." This is wrong on so many levels!
Biblical submission = / =abuse.
The two are not similar. The two are not related. The two are not close. Neither one leads to the other. Neither one allows for the other. To mention one in any context of the other simply doesn't make sense.
This makes about as much sense.
Submission is about love.
Biblical submission is how a woman is instructed by God to show love and respect for her husband. These nasty women know this. They would rather submit to their boss at work. They would rather hate their husbands and their children. Feminism has so polluted their minds that they cannot form normal human relationships and attachments. That's a big part of why so many need psychological medication.
Refusing to submit is rebellion toward God.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
1 Samuel 15:23
Not doing as God commands is the rejection of God. In the same way, putting one's faith in false gods (witchcraft) is the rejection of God. Stubbornness - defined as not changing one's attitude - is the same rejection.
By claiming "abuse," these nasty women are copping out of their God-given duty. This is rebellion and stubbornness. This is rejection of God Himself. This is why I call them "nasty women."
The "abuse" they claim, really isn't.
The ones claiming abuse are almost never really abused. If they claim physical abuse, there is no proof, no police report, etc. There are, however, plenty of excuses.
If they claim emotional abuse, it's because they themselves emotionally abuse... usually their husbands. If not that, then it is usually because their husband doesn't "provide" something emotionally. This emotional unobtanium would be obtainable if they would submit as God commands.
If they claim psychological abuse, again, it is usually because they psychologically abuse... often their husbands. Or, because their husband said "no" to an unreasonable request or demand.
The word "no" is not abuse.
And, as The Transformed Wife says,
Teaching women biblical womanhood and submission actually has a far better chance at preventing physical abuse rather than causing it.
So, in all seriousness, if when someone mentions Biblical submission, your first instinct is to cry wolf on "abuse," please go to the police immediately and report the crime. If this will get you put in jail for filing a false report, then shut your mouth, keep your fingers off the keypad, and do what God says.
