The role of the wife still confuses me because I still see the world with egalitarian eyes influenced by the strings of the Women's Liberation movement among other pop culture factors. How does the bible view the role of the wife? Look at Ephesians 5:22-24 (ESV): Wives submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. According to Webster's 3rd Collegiate Dictionary, the oldest definition of the word SUBMIT mentioned means "to yield to governance or authority". According to my Strong's Concordance, the Greek word represented by this word conveys the idea of "subordinating yourself under another authority, obeying another authority, or arranging yourself under authority". This same word appears in Colossians 3:18. Do these verses mean that a wife should allow her husband to tell her what to do like a USAF General pulls rank over a USAF Colonel? Do these verses mean that a wife should willingly capitulate to her Godly husbands decisions about the household? Thank you for all of your input, especially the ladies.
