Editor’s note: All the emphasis in the bits below come from Larry himself. This type of hair splitting in the world of weak immature Christian Patriarchy is particularly chafing as the Bible orders you to avoid sin, yet Larry is claiming if you are to sin because your husband orders it then you have to do it. So which is it? Avoid sin or do what the petty dictator claims because penis?
A wife does not submit to her husband because he is “treating her as a Christian husband should” or because he has “her well-being in mind”. She submits to her husband because God has commanded it. A husband, Christian or non-Christian, does not lose his authority over his wife if he does not follow God’s Word.
This woman and a whole host of Christians today ignore this passage from Peter on the subject of submission of wives to unrighteous husbands:
“3 In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, 2 as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.”
I Peter 3:1-2 (NASB)
This passage makes it crystal clear – wives are to submit to sinful and disobedient husbands. Whether your husband is a Christian, a non-Christian or a professed Christian who is living in disobedience if you are his Christian wife you are to submit to him despite his sinful behavior.
This attitude toward submission is by far the biggest problem today with Christian’s attitudes toward marriage.
