Editor’s note: Have you ’emotionally badgered’ your husband today? Apparently that is what Larry things women who express needs or different ideas to their husbands are doing. Badgering. This almost completely makes his list of the 12 attributes a total lie.
In Biblical marriage the way a man and wife become one is the same way the church becomes one with Christ. He leads and she follows. As Church is mold itself around the wishes and leadership of Christ so too a wife is to mold herself to the wishes and leading of her husband.
So while the world and many Christian teachers today teach that compromise is the key to unity and oneness in marriage – the Bible teaches that conformity rather than compromise is the key to oneness in marriage. In Christian marriage – the man conforms his will to God’s will and the wife conforms her will to her husband’s will.
Sadly many Christian marriages today are built on compromise rather than conformity and the truth is that men and women are equally to blame for this sad state of affairs. Women are to blame because they emotionally badger their husbands into compromising with them on important affairs of the home even when he believes God would have their family do things differently. Men on the other hand are to blame for not standing up as men of God and choosing to conform to the will of God rather than compromise what they know to be right for the sake of peace with their wives.
