Biblical Lesson On How A Man Is To Treat A Christian Wife

Recommended Posts

I often preach about the women due to the fact that sisters of Eve are, by their inferiority, more inclined to sin then the men.  But we must also talk about the men and their responsibility to their wives.

 

Here's a good lesson from James the Preacher:

a few little bones, but overall a good meal.  Thanks for posting the video.  I might have actually clicked "like" if you had just posted the video without that "inferiority" rhetoric. 

 

 

edited for some marital advise.

 

If you, even in the subconscious, consider your wife "inferior", you will not love her from the heart like you should.  You might make yourself a list of things to do in order to honor your wife, like buy a carnation or chocolate ice cream, but it wont be from the heart.  You will be loving your wife "legalistically" with a set of guildlines and "to do's", but that is not from the heart.

The Bible is very clear about the status of women.  Yes, they are inferior to men.  Because the Bible says so.  That doesn't take away from one's familial love!  I love my dogs, too, and they surely aren't of equal stature.

Please post the verses of Scripture which declares that women are inferior to men.

Eph.5:22-24
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing."

1 Cor.11:3
"But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."
1 Cor.14:34-36
"Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."

Lev27:3-7
"And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels."
Col.3:18
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord."
1 Tim.2:11-15
"Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing"
1 Pet.3:1
"Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands."

Women are NOT inferior to men...that is NOT biblical, no matter how you have to twist Scripture to "prove" your case.  Your comparing your "love"(?) for your wife to your "love" for your dogs is downright disgusting. Shame on you!   Wives are to "submit" themselves to their own husbands "as unto the Lord".  A husband is supposed to be the "head of his wife...EVEN as Christ is head of the church and saviour of the body".  Does Christ "love His church" as He would love His dogs?  As the wife is told to submit to her own husband (as unto the Lord)....those husbands are told to "love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it".  Christ does not treat women as inferior and neither should you.

 

Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Ephesians 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Notice in DD's next post of Ephesians 5:23-24, he conveniently "left out" verse 25 about husbands loving their wives as Christ also loved the church.

 

Being "in subjection" does not mean that women are inferior....neither are women "doormats".

Indeed! Also no mention that a husbands body belongs to his wife, not himself. Nothing about the call to consider others more highly than ourselves. Certainly nothing about Ephesians 5:21 which lays the foundation for the following verses.

 

"Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God." Ephesians 5:21

Absolutely no disagreement with submitting to one another or with men loving our wives!  Glory!

 

Here's a short note I wrote some time ago, the prices of silver may have changed, but the principle of the message is eternal!

 

A demonstration of the value (in dollars and cents) the Lord places on women is aptly given in Leviticus 27:3-7
And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
In todays prices:
Male from 20 to 60 years of age: $580
Female of the same age: $348
From 5 to 20 years:
Male -- $232
Female -- $116
From 1 month to 5 years of age:
Male -- $58
Female -- $34.80
Over 60 years old:
Male -- $174
Female -- $116
Glory!

That's not about the value of women.

 

We see in the NT that in Christ all, including men and women, stand equal before God. Wives are a man's partners in salvation. If women were inferior to men then men couldn't love their wives as themselves nor could they love them as Christ loved the church. Christ died for men and women, the value of both is the blood of Christ.

Stand equal? Yes!  Created equal? No!

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

 

In this life and the life to come the Lord is superior on that we can all agree.  

 

By comparing husbands to the Lord that makes them superior.

 

8)For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

9)Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

 

The pride of life makes it hard for us to humble ourselves below others. I'm just a church member, I must humble myself below the Pastor and Deacons but when I do so Jesus blesses me and gives unity to our church.

It's interesting to see those who can so freely quote Ephesians 5:22 about wives submitting to their own husbands as unto to the Lord, but continually fall short of quoting the rest of that passage in Ephesians 5 where it says that 1. We are to submit to one another in the fear of God and 2. Husbands are to love their own wives as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it. (verse 25).  Marriage is a picture of Christ and the church.  Do you all realize that not all husbands are godly husbands?  Are you saying that a wife must submit to the ungodly whims of her husband?  Women are not doormats.  As the husband loves his wife as Christ also loved the church, it is a joy for a wife to submit to her husband as unto the Lord....but not as an inferior person, but as her husband's "helpmeet"

 

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

 

Our "humility" is before the Lord, not "below" any man, not even your pastor. 

 

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

 

1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

 

We are to obey those who have the "rule over us"

 

Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

 

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

 

What if your pastor is teaching false doctrine?  Do you check out what he is teaching according to what the Bible teaches?  Are you a Biblical Berean? Do you simply "accept" what your pastor teaches as truth just because he is the pastor and would never teach false doctrine?  Nobody is "above" correction....not even the pastor.

 

Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

 

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

 

Every person is saved the same way and the ground is level at the foot of the cross.  In Christ, we are all equal...but we function differently within the body of Christ, but nobody is inferior to another member of that body.

 

1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

Did you really just say that about loving your dogs in the same context as loving your wife? LOL. I feel sorry for your wife......

 Yes

 

 

Paul answered this in 2 Corinthians 6

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

 

Look what God asked Hosea to do. Talk about an ungodly marriage yet God told Hosea to marry her. Do you think he felt like a doormat?

 

 

 

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

 

Our "humility" is before the Lord, not "below" any man, not even your pastor. 

 

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

 

1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

 

We are to obey those who have the "rule over us"

 

Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

 

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Do you simply "accept" what your pastor teaches as truth just because he is the pastor and would never teach false doctrine?  Nobody is "above" correction....not even the pastor.

 

I'll pray for him and when Jesus tells me to I'll talk to him. Maybe Jesus will have someone else talk to him. I want to be a help in time of trouble or error and a man who abandons people in need. I'm sure Jesus will tell me when its time to gird up my loins and flee.  

 

Sure

 

Yes and Yes

 

I've found Jesus does a much better job doing the correcting than men or women.

Proverbs 3:12

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Hebrews 12:6

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

 

Yes, I am below the pastor, Jesus raised him up to that position in the church. At the foot of the cross being saved we are side by side but in Jesus' church he is above me. Should I be offended that Jesus chose to raise him up? God forbid. I'm thankful. I have my place and I'm happy with it. My job is to help him in his work. I should give "amens" and encourage the leadership.

 

I have a good Pastor. If I have a problem and tell him he has a problem. He came to see my dying father in the hospital many times, the deacons did too. My elderly mother has been ill, many prayers have went up for her. We was waiting on a cancer test and he called told me he had to step out on faith, during his prayer time Jesus gave him peace it was going to come back normal, it did. When I have the flu, bad cold, etc, they call ask can they bring me some soup leave it on the porch. We know you are laid up, we coming over to the mow the yard this week. He made himself a servant to a whole church and Jesus raised him up to be an under shepherd. Good leadership not only makes it easy for ME to submit, (they can't submit for me or force me to submit) they also make me want to follow them as they follow Jesus.

 

 

 

Every person is saved the same way and the ground is level at the foot of the cross.  In Christ, we are all equal...but we function differently within the body of Christ, but nobody is inferior to another member of that body.

 

1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

 

Would you say you are equal to Jesus? You are part of his body.

 

Is a coronel equal to a general? They are in one body, the army. Yet they aren't equal the general can tell the coronel what to do.

Adam was created first, and the woman was formed afterwards. God formed the man to lead, and He formed the woman to follow. This does not mean the woman is to be a door mat. She is a highly exalted creature made in God's image; she has beautiful gifts which have brought manifold benefits to mankind; she is to be valued and cherished. Her place in creation is simply different from that of the man.

 

Women are not inferior to men.

      Please pray for my family, brothers and sisters in Christ. I was an abusive, drug addict, drinking, adulterous husband in the past. My wife left me three years ago because of it.  She was also adulterous. I have since been saved, am completely regenerate in Christ, but my wife is not.  We have since started dating for 2 months, still living separate. She is now pregnant, praise God, but I am afraid she might be considering an abortion. Please pray for us. I don't think you need our names, God knows who we are and He will know that you are praying for our situation.

      As we have seen in some other threads, Les teaches two gospels, (grace vs kingdom or gentile vs jew) we know there is only one.
      Also we have learned he teaches two creations. 
      Now we find out the King James Version is wrong and Adam gave up a gonad to create Woman.
      Keep in the back of your mind Les teaches this on TV and if you disagree with his ideas on the verses you are not "rightly dividing" the scriptures. (right in my own eyes dividing) 
       
      We believe the Bible, it says rib so we believe rib. Nothing fancy, nothing added to scriptures. Its sad to see Les who knows the scriptures so well not being satisfied and adding leaven. This could be anyone of us so beware friends and say a little prayer for Les.

      Hi there, 
       
      I've actually been raised a Southern Baptist but I hope you don't mind me posting here. 
       
      I've just found out that my parents might be getting a divorce, my father doesn't abuse my mother and hasn't cheated on her, though he has shown physical violence toward other members of my family. 
       
      I have no idea what to think - My dad is away on business and I don't even know if he's coming home again or not. If you could please send your prayers to my mom and dad I would really appreciate it, that they might find a way to reconcile their differences and work together to fix their marriage.
       
      I'm so confused and don't know what to think about any of this. Sorry for the rambling. 
       
      Many thanks, and God bless,
