John Piper on Submission and Abused Women

John Piper on Submission and Abused Women January 12, 2013

Thanks to Sarah Moon, I recently came upon a video from a few years back where John Piper discusses whether God requires married women to submit to abuse at their husbands hands. Piper recently clarified his views, though without really improving them, as discussed by Sarah in this post (which is well worth a read!). See also Dianna Anderson’s take (which is also well worth a read!). Honestly, the fact that this sort of question is still considered a weighty and complex matter by a figure as respected as John Piper shows the depth of conservative evangelicalism’s love affair with wifely submission.

Can I say how glad I am I don’t believe this stuff anymore?
