My wife is reading the book The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. When the topic of submission came up, she had a question in regards to a quote which states "In considering the scope of submission, "in everything (5:24) means in all areas of life such as finances, decorating the house, the length of her hair, what to have for supper, and discipline of the children. For example, consider the case of an unsubmissive wife who was furious at her husband because he did not like the antique sofa she had purchased and he told her to take it back. Since he was not asking her to sin, she should have graciously submitted. The point is, a wife must obey her husband unless he asks her to sin." The above bolded caught my attention. What does "in everything" truly mean, and submitting to what exactly? The author made it sound like if I click my fingers my wife is to obey my every command (not that I wouldn't like that ) Everything I have read has been VERY vague on what submission is in the context of the passage, and when applying hermeneutics in regards to the audience Paul had considering he also said a woman should cover her head and remain silent in the church, it becomes even more vague.
