I Respect Those That Chose This Path, But Not For Religion's Sake.Wives that choose to be submissive because they want to is something I really respect and admire because I know I'd never be able to do that.
But when it comes to being pressured into submission by the church, I severely disagree with it. God loves his children equally; he does not favor men. The verse that is quipped has a second part to it: Wives, be submissive to your husbands, and husbands, love your wives like Christ loved the church. What did Jesus do for the church? He was completely submissive to the church. This verse is telling spouses to submit to each other and not to abuse their own power over the other. Just thought I'd clear that up. :)
