by Lori Alexander from Always Learning – No One That is Submissive is Happy
Editor’s note: Alexander is getting push back again in her comments and cannot understand it’s because her words are always blaming others, negative towards those different and not ever very ‘nice’. She comes across as someone sitting up on high being uber judgmental. But clearly how she reacts whenever anyone disagrees with her shows how incredibly thin-skinned and easily offended she is. She’s right, she IS ‘Christian’, or at least the toxic very far from the words of Jesus American Evangelical Christian that are chasing people away from the church.
Therefore, according to her logic, all children who are submissive and obey their parents are miserable. All employees who are submissive and obey their bosses are miserable. All citizens who are submissive to their governments and obey the law of the land are miserable. All wives who are submissive to their husbands and obey them are unhappy.
She is terribly mistaken. Most marriages where the wives become submissive heals and strengthens the marriage which usually results in making both of them happier. All those who are in rebellion to authority are the ones who are miserable. God has set an authority structure so there will be peace. When people obey those who are in authority over them, more people will likely be happy since things run more smoothly and those under authority must use self-control to do what is right.
It takes a lot more discipline to be submissive to authority rather than just do what you feel like doing. Most can see the chaos beginning to reign in our culture as many are doing as they please: broken homes, prisons overflowing, riots in the streets, less safety for all, STDs, drugs addictions, and miserable, unhappy people
She has listened to the lies of the enemy of her soul. I pray her blinders come off and she can see the error of her ways and decide to repent and follow the King of kings. I was happy, however, that she can tell that I am “clearly a Christian.” This was my favorite part of her comment!
