Scripture says wives are to submit to their own husbands. Why do most churches not teach this?


Scripture says that Christ is head of the church and that the husband is head of the wife in like manner. Why do the majority of churches and those professing Christianity not teach, believe or follow this scripture? Eph 5:22-24 22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

    properly understood and applied this is a protection for women.

    yes the "churches" have laid aside scripture and no longer teach scripture, but a mix of worldly ways and doctrines of men. that is why God has left the "church system"

    you just cannot use a regular dictionary to interpret scripture.

    wonderful worldly answer but not applicable if you are a Christian who are of another kingdom and not of this world

    Christians are to confirm to scripture not the way of man

    real Christian men do. but then sometimes love doesn't seem like love at the moment. real Christian couples have COMMUNICATION and a desire to please God which make possible the scriptural admonition to become one in Spirit .death of self is neede

    True but that does not excuse them from teaching truth.

    2 Tim 4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

    NKJV

    thanks for adding this . I wanted to incude it but ran out of room; I did address it in a comment on the wives question. Correct understanding is so important.
