by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – The Most Hated Verse in the Bible
Editor’s note: After stating all of this Lori goes on to say that the only time you can refuse to obey is when he orders you to sin. This comes right after all of this about obeying ‘Every Time’. Lori cannot see the contradictions in what she teaches. Submit to your husband in everything every time, unless he orders you to rob a bank or participate in a three-way. Oh what a goat rodeo of mental and spiritual Twister game she plays.
The reason I don’t give the exceptions and qualifiers every single time I teach verse 24 is because I want women to focus upon being subject to their husbands in everything instead of focusing upon the exceptions which becomes a distraction. There are few men who ask their wives to commit evil so the majority of women need to concern themselves with following their husbands’ lead instead of trying to figure out when they don’t have to follow.
Others will refuse to work outside of the home when their husband wants them to because they know that God wants them to be keepers at home. Some women may refuse to send their children to public schools when their husband wants them to because so much evil is taught and they will be influenced by peers who know not the ways of the LORD. Many husbands love to watch TV but the wives refuse to allow their children to watch any because of the filth on the screen.
The list could go on and on but I am sure you are understanding what I am trying to get across. In all of these cases, the wife has become the leader and decided what should happen in the family. She has become the head over her husband and her husband the follower because she has determined that she doesn’t want to go against the LORD’s commands. This is why I believe the LORD added the word “everything.”
No wonder anti-depressant usage rates are much higher in many religious communities. You would have to turn off your inner distress from the cognitive dissonance some way.
She doesn’t get that it’s not the actual verse anyone has a problem with, it’s the dangerous way that she and others apply it across the board without regard to the people, situation or needs. That is the toxic part.
