As in Ephesians 5:22 and why should the husband submit to the wife also as they both submit to Jesus.

Never try to make doctrine on the understanding of one verse.

The reason is given in v25. Husbands love your wives, how as Jesus loved the church/his people, giving up Everything for them.

There is a heavenly order, a chain of command. God the Father in over all charge, then is God the Son, followed by God the Spirit.
Note they are all God and are not lesser for being subordinate to the other.
In the same way the husband carries the can, he is the authority figure in a marriage to whom his wife submits. Submits in that a dessision has to be made and the usband 'should' make it as advised by his wife.

Does this order make Jesus less than God the Father or a wife less than her husband, remember how we are to love our wives.

Husband submit to wife?
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

As in Ephesians 5:22 and why should the wife submit to the husband - why should he take the place of Christ.




I just happened to watch a programme on TV in which this debate was discussed between a husband and wife [no need to be concerned about my welfare....]
