Wives: Submit To Your Husbands

Wow, such a simple saying, and yet it has made international news. The short story: A vicar in Britain, rather than give some mushy ear-tickling sermon, on the sunday prior to Valentines gave a sermon that included the verse that wives should submit to their husbands. Terribly controversial I tell you! From the article “One woman churchgoer said she was ‘disgusted’ by the sermon, adding: ‘How can they talk that way in the 21st Century?’ Disgusting I tell you! Apparently numerous womyn and their mangina enablers are never coming back to that church. So sad…

Know what is funny? Supposedly Christian women will flat out REFUSE to submit to their husband saying that either they just won’t do it or that “no one is going to do that anymore” but then go down a couple lines and claim that men have to love theirs wives because THE BIBLE SAID SO! The disconnect is striking, but they don’t even attempt to address it.

But there is some hope offered at the end of that article: A woman of 24 who was at the sermon said: ‘Isn’t it a vicar’s job not to tell you what everyone wants to hear and what society says, but to help explain the Bible says about issues?’ This young lady has the right idea. The Bible has much to say on our culture and the Church needs to start reading from it. They might lose lukewarm “supporters” as those mentioned above, but will regain a power that the Church hasn’t had in quite some time.

    You beat me to it! I have a post on this in the works. You made several of the same points. If you go to the church’s website you can listen to the sermon. I’m embedding it in my post as well. It was excellent, balanced, nothing like you would find in America. The article totally skewed it.

    If these are the people that are getting upset over the sermon, the vicar can be satisfied that he’s doing something right.

    At least there is a church leader who is more worried about the accuracy of God’s word than attendance.

    Laura commented above that the sermon was “excellent, balanced, nothing like you would find in America”.

    Here’s one that fits that description and it’s from north america. Does that count?
