Ephesians tells men how to love their wives, why are men not being taught this? Eph 5:25-33 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but see vs 29-33 for more

sorry but we CAN blame the pastors (ministers of the doctrines of men) because they will not teach the truth fro scriptures which would force to go to the scriptures, but because it would decrease the number of their followers they will not.
norine-- this is the kind of writing that is helpful. not the pushing your beliefs, but truth
mm- I believe that scripture shows loving is natural to the woman but not to man. that is why God told the man to love his wife, but told the woman to respect her husband. it comes from the curse given after the fall. see Eph 5:25 & 33
It's OK with me - your interpretation. Verse 33 hoe shall a man love himself if his love isn't natural?! Again, before Paul myJesus said love one another; these are new creation. In Ephesus Paul is handling a paganism' background; no Christ in tthem
mm- you do realize self love and love for others are several totally different kinds of love ? totally different greek words and meaning. and love for the brethren is yet an other alltogether different word and meaning. as is love of spouse.
