God’s word proves true no matter what. Some would have you believe that this passage from The Bible (Ephesians 5:22) justifies men treating their wives and daughters like servants. This fallacy is spread by those who would justify their bullying ways over women and those who want to bully us away from God and Biblical principles. Like most things, specific texts taken out of context can be used justify most anything. What these folks overlook is Ephesians 5:25 that instructs men to love their wives as Christ loved the Church; through service, sacrifice and love. The bottom line is that we are called to love and serve one another but men, it is your job to lead your families not bully them.
Christ served his disciples by washing their feet…at a time when the streets were dirt and animals left their droppings there. That is a far cry from making a women a second class citizen. So, men, how have you served your wife today?
