Husbands and wives are commanded alike to submit one to the other. You don't hear this too often taught. Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” A Christian husband who loves his wife will want to make her happy and submit to her desires and wishes as much as possible. However, in any area of conflict, a wife is commanded to submit and obey her husband.
There are many evil women today, rebels and feminists at heart, who shout out “domestic violence” and “abuse” every time a preacher speaks on the subject of “submission.” I do not approve of abuse, and I never have. A wife who is being physically abused ought to leave. But I'm going to say this, some of you little witches who push your husband's buttons—sass him, disobey him, grieve him, hide the mail from him, lie to him, yell at him, and put him through hell-on-earth—you are in trouble with God for stirring him up.
1st Kings 21:25, “But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.”
Feminism teaches women to harbor a sinful spirit of resentment, teaching wives to walk around with a chip on their shoulder, being defensive and over-sensitive toward her husband; whereas the Word of God compels women to maintain a Christian spirit of power, love and a sound mind, teaching submission.
It all goes back to Eve in the Garden of Eden. Eve didn't like being restricted. She wanted to be as a god. Eve wanted to have a say in the way things were done. This is the very root and essence of feminism, that is, women want EQUALITY in the marriage, home, church and public. Feminists attempt to make the issue one of self-worth, but it is really a matter of authority. Women are equal in value and worth; but God has ordained that a man shall be the head of the marriage and home. Women are to keep silence in the church, having a meek and quiet spirit as the Bible teaches.
There is a world of difference between a woman who posses a feminist spirit, having an attitude toward authoritative husbands, fathers and preachers. They also have a problem with an authoritative God and Bible, which is why the new perverted NIV 2011 is transgendered, removing the words he, him and man in THOUSANDS of places to appease lesbians and feminists. To no surprise, the corrupted New International Version (NIV) 2011 removes the word obey from Hebrews 13:7. It is wickedness. We are living in an evil generation that wants to recreate God in their own sinful image (Romans 1:25).
A godly woman will have a submissive spirit at all times. She will despise feminism, understanding that it is rooted in the same rebellion that banned Adam and Eve form the Garden of Eden and brought sin and death upon the world (Romans 5:12). Feminism is the rot of any society, which is synonymous with abortion, pornography and lesbianism.
