    interesting thought...

    "Submit" and "obey" are two different Greek words in the NT.

    I always viewed submission in this allegorical way:

    If I call the front desk at a hotel and ask for a wake up call, when they call and tell me it's time to get up the next morning, I "obey" in a sense. I am only responding to their authority to tell me it's time to get up because I initiated the process willingly.
