one thing i want to say is that i believe what i'm about to talk about is an extremely common misconception we have in society... and i've probably said it before but this is just something i want to bring out to the forefront
if anyone has a comment on this then leave it because i want to see what other people think of this
where does the bible say that men are to dominate women?
the bible says women are to submit to men
what i mean by this is- i don't like how people try to give men the woman's job and responsibility
like if a woman in a relationship is out of line, they say to the man "you have to show her you're the man" or "you have to take your rightful place"
again.. where is my commandment to dominate a woman or force her into compliance?
where is it? if anyone knows where this is please seriously.. no joke, show me this scripture
i resent people blaming men for women's indiscretion.. i resent people saying "your wife is out of line because of you as a man"
THE COMMANDMENT IS FOR HUSBANDS TO LOVE THEIR WIVES AND FOR WIVES TO SUBMIT TO THEIR HUSBANDS
IT IS THE WOMAN'S JOB TO SUBMIT, SO HOW/WHY ARE YOU BLAMING THE HUSBAND FOR THE WOMAN'S LACK OF SUBMISSION!!!?
ITS HER JOB!!!!!
if a man didn't love his wife, would you blame his wife? or would you go to the man and say "hey brother, you are not right for treating your wife this way"
my job as a man is to act in a respectable way, protect, provide and to love my wife
a woman's job is to be loveable and to honor/respect, and submit to her husband
i can't get mad at a woman if her husband is not providing or protecting now can i?
in the same way, when we see women who are not in proper submission, let's recognize that it's not the man's fault or drawback.. it is the woman's
it is HER job and SHE is choosing not to do it
it doesn't say "husbands, dominate your wives" it says "wives, submit to your husbands"
if a woman doesn't do this then it is her folly.. the man could legit be doing everything right in this scenario
i am just tired of people blaming women's lack of reverence/respect/submission on men
if a woman has a good man and chooses not to respect him.. don't rebuke or admonish the man, turn to the woman
i just feel overall that women are to submit, men are to love
just as women cannot FORCE men to love them
men cannot FORCE women to submit
