22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
One of the biggest issues with the modern Western church is that they are pumping out “christian” women who are what I will call, hydrophobic. Hydrophobia is, of course, a fear of water, and what better way to describe modern christian women than that they are afraid of or resistant to a washing of water by the word, as prescribed in the preceding verses. A man attempting to call out a christian woman on her sins or disobedience will find himself immediately falling afoul of her anger. And not only her anger, but most assuredly into the angry mob that is her friends and family as well as other members of the church up to, and including, the pastor.
Calling out women is a big no-no, and not just regarding the biblical, either. ANY taking notice of or mentioning of her sins, disobedience, hypocrisy, ignorance or inaccuracies, be they biblical or about what you ate for lunch last week, and YOU, good sir, have crossed the line! Remember, CHRISTIANITY = CHIVALRY now!
How are fathers supposed to shape their daughters when any attempt to lead them is met with, “You are just stifling her personality”, “If you don’t give her freedom she will just grow up to hate you”, or “You have to let GOD guide her”. God put her father there TO guide her! He is literally the solution to that problem!
I pose the same question regarding wives. How are HUSBANDS supposed to administer “washing of water by the word” when the church pushes the false teaching that men have no such power! All he is permitted to do is stand idly by while praying she suddenly has a change of heart and turns toward being obedient. Who, then, does have the authority? The church? The church has no power over a mans wife, not even to teach them! The bible instructs women to learn from THEIR HUSBANDS AT HOME!
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
This, of course, makes a huge problem for fathers/husbands, who take a stand off approach to raising their daughters and training their wives, then scratch their heads in bewilderment as both go off the rails and are disobedient to the word as it is written! Unfortunately many men ascribe to the warped teachings of the church, so as they scratch their heads they continue to do the exact same thing, thinking they just need to pray harder, or maybe give their wives/daughters MORE freedom to “do what they want”, even if it involves sin! If they ever wake up, they are overwhelmed by the pushback from other “christians” who will deride him for being “legalistic” by using his God given authority to keep his daughter/wife on the straight and narrow path.
Some people have asked me why I completely stopped attending any local churches, and this is one of the many reasons why. The churches of the West are teaching a false doctrine, a false Jesus and a false roadmap for families to succeed as christians, along with a false roadmap of how christian marriages are to succeed. Is it any surprise that christianity in the West is falling apart? That children from christian families are embracing leftist ideologies that are diametrically opposed to the teachings of Christ? Is it any surprise that the divorce rate of secular and christian households are riding neck-and-neck? That young men are leaving the church because it has become a hotbed of christo-feminism, in which they are told they should chain themselves to a woman as a workhorse, to care and provide for her, while retaining absolutely no authority over her, even if she runs roughshod over his vow, his children, his property and his resources?
If the church doesn’t stop producing hydrophobic women it will soon find itself transformed into a temple of Diana, as there will be no men present save those held under a warped slavery identified as “traditional marraige”.
God help us.
