Wives submitting to husbands (video reply)

So I was watching a video online about Kirk Cameron saying wives should be submissive to their husbands, and another one about the full house star Candace Cameron Bure and how she said she is submissive to her husband. And the The Young Turks on YouTube completely dissected this Biblical idea of women being submissive to their husbands. I love watching this show because they always bring up good ideas, and questions. But on this video I had to leave my comment because I believe they are seeing submission as the negative submission, like a slave to a master or a maid to a boss. But not at all, this submission that the bible refers to is mutual respect of ideas and more. I wrote out a comment and if you read through it all please let me know what you think … THANK YOU 🙂

First , Here are the videos if you want to see them..

I know it’s a lot.. please read.. It’s not like that at all . wives submit to husbands THE WAY YOU SUBMIT TO THE LORD and husbands LOVE YOUR WIVES respect your wives JUST AS CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH.. and how did christ love the church? He died for us so that we may live, and he lives for us so that we can be free of sin and death and live our destiny in him, in goodness and love.. it is not one-sided “yes sir” we don’t submit to god saying yes sir.. we talk to god and tell him the desires in our heart and he listens and makes a way for us, and we listen to his guidance because he knows what is right for us, because he knows our HEARTS, AND OUR SPIRIT AND WHO WE REALLY ARE, his plans are always to prosper and not to harm us, and to make us victorious in him because he loves us and desires us to be happy in our full potential as children of GOD the creator of heaven and earth, and everything you know.. This passage is an addition to marriages, how you’re supposed to treat a marriage WHEN YOU ALREADY HAVE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOU: LOVE, PEACE, GOODNESS, KINDNESS, FAITHFULNESS, HOLYNESS, SELF CONTROL, JOY, GENTLENESS ETC. (Gal 5:22)

 

It’s a command to both husband and wives to respect each other, listen to each other, submit to eachother, work together when making decisions, and a wife tells her husband how she feels, and what she wants .. and the husband is supposed to respect her, love her the way Christ loves us, and support her.. submission is showing respect to eachother NOT THE WORDLY SUBMISSION WHICH HAS A STIGMA ATTACHED TO IT, ALMOST LIKE A SLAVE/ MAID/ OBEDIENCE IN EVERYTHING.. NOT THAT AT ALL.. it is assumed that a woman waited for God’s guidance in finding her husband and so his heart will be for her and her heart will be for him, but since we are sinful people we get selfish and want whatever we want and that’s how some marriages end, and god is just laying out some guidelines to make every GOD CENTERED marriage work. And though it does not say MEN be submissive to your wife, it does give other commands which in order to be fulfilled a husband has to also submit to what his wife desires, so they submit to eachother, love eachother equally because they are one, and treat eachother the way they would treat themselves.

And yes Husbands have the final final say in decisions that they can’t come into agreement with, just because someone has to have the final say of what they’re going to do, and the husband is the head of the household. And the command is for wives to be submissive .. ,but he doesn’t just decide no or yes… as a christ centered marriage and as head of household he goes and talks to god/ prays and God will guide them both..And the husband is commanded to love her so much that he will do what is best for her, no matter what. and the only decision he’ll say no to ,, is if he sees a better way or if it will hurt his other half in some way.

BIBLE VERSES:

Ephesians 5: 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands AS YOU DO TO THE LORD. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”[b] 32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Wedding in the family..

Don’t you love weddings? planning a wedding is hard work but in the end it’s a great reward.

This Friday is my sister’s wedding. 🙂

After so much planning and so much preparation, her big day is finally around the corner. It can be stressful if we let the little things get to us, it’s best to remember to always keep the bride satisfied.. After all it is her day; Ohh Yeah and the groom’s also.

They were the best of friends as children, they disconnected years back; He went to the army, she moved from the city but God reunited them and has blessed them so much. They got engaged about a year ago and are ready to start their life together.

Last Friday we had a bachelorette party for the bride. The maid of honor (another sister) was expecting all the woman to go and to celebrate with the bride so she bought lots of games, decorations and a beautiful cake, she also made some delicious margaritas. The people all knew when to go and where but when the day came they were all full of excuses; some said they thought it was the next day, others said they didn’t know where it was and some of them didn’t even give an explanation they just didn’t go.

–If you are ever invited to a wedding please make it for the ceremony, the reception, and anything else they’ll be  having for the bride.  If your excuse is you don’t want to go because you don’t have a gift; it’s not about the gift it’s about  celebrating this time of change in that person’s life.

So only close friends and family made it. Which was great because that’s how the bride assumed it was going to be anyways and she loved it like that. The theme was a masquerade and we surprised her when she walked through the door. Her fiance brought her with the pretext that he was taking her out to eat, of course she knew something was up when he took her to an apartment instead of a restaurant.

At the end of the night we dropped her off at home to her fiance,we had many laughs, took lots of pictures, danced and played games, (what else are we supposed to do in a bachelorette for a christian woman?).

The most important thing about that night though was that the bride enjoyed herself.

Wednesday we have rehearsals.

And finally Friday is the big day, the bride is anxious and excited about it all. Hopefully we all have a great time in celebrating a couple that God brought together.

 I’ll tell you all about the wedding next time!

_Unfailing Love by Jimmy Needham_  is the song that she will be walking down to, It’s truly beautiful, I recommended it, she heard it and loved it and I hope you all enjoy it too. : )

PS. I’m sorry guys that I have not been posting anything lately. I just started this blog last week and I’m so thankful for the followers and viewers that I have so far. It turns out that I like blogging so much more than I thought I would. SO I promise to continue as soon as the hectic wedding is over with.
