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


Recommended Posts

  • Members

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:

Wow!!  James the Preacher actually said a man ought to help his wife out by doing some of the dishes!  I about fell out of my chair!  I am up to 2:15, so far so good.

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;

These verses say nothing about women being inferior to men.

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!

 

Praise!

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
