Who is the head of a woman?
What does scripture mean when it says the husband is the head of the woman as Christ is the head of the husband|?
He's supposed to be the leader, the protector, the one most responsible for what happens in his family. Just as Christ has authority over the husband (the Bible says He is head of the "church", which boils down to He is head of the Christian husband), the wife should submit to the authority of the husband. It all, however, breaks down when the husband doesn't follow Christ, thereby releasing the wife from submitting to the husband in those things that aren't Godly. Her responsibility then becomes to behave Godly herself, with the hope that her husband will correct his behavior and become fit to exercise authority. The husband's first responsibility is to follow Christ; his second is to Love his wife as he loves his own body. Very hard for some men, it seems. Though I don't quite understand why. So, like I said, when that "chain of command" breaks, the wife's "head" is Christ. Which, actually, is always in effect, since the wife is part of the "church" too. It's just that God gives husbands the authority as long as they use it correctly. That's the ideal system for a family to operate efficiently and in a Godly manner.
If she is unmarried, then she submits only to Christ. If she is married then her husband is who she submits to as she would Christ and only in Christ (if he wants her to do something that goes against the Bible or Christ, she does not have to submit to his wishes).
The husband is under the authority of Christ and Christ is under the authority of God the Father.
It means sexism, and was introduced to keep women under the thumb.
not to a Christian that understands, to them it is a place of Godly protection.
This is not the place for that kind of foolishness
Christianity has nothing to do with reality. This question is perpetuating a sexist policy to keep women under control
THAT is your opinion. not scriptural or factual but yours nevertheless.
Surely scriptual writings are opinion and not factual, just the words of men seeking power.
How could it be? She is my wife. If I do not love her well enough for her to follow me, I sin. If I do not lead her into Love I fail my Lord and she should not follow me.
It means that I cannot fail, That if I do, I spiritually fail my wife.
Practically speaking it means that if she is not content then I have failed her.
My wife is suffering right now. She is switching careers and feeling insecure. That is on me. My wife is not getting enough time with our small son, that is on me. My wife is not attending enough worship, that is on me.
Sometimes I wish I were a wife.
yes its tough for a liberal to be responsible but thats that way it goes eric. God requires more than sloppy love, He requires some hard stuff. He expects men to be responsible. You are right for once though that is all on you so man up .
