Wives Submit to your Husbands?

" Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them." (Colossians 3:18-19, NKJV)

I was watching Hannity & Colmes the other day when Kirsten Powers guest hosted for Alan Colmes. Kirsten was discussing Mike Hucabee’s views and laughed out loud when she was asked what she thought about the idea of submitting to her husband.
Our culture is becoming increasingly politically correct which by the way is not necessarily Biblically correct. Our value system in this country was originally guided by the Christian principles. Today most of the secular society mocks the values taught in the Word of God. This is not a new trend. In the first century the apostle Paul noted that,

"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one." (1 Corinthians 2:14-15, NKJV)

If you have any interest in getting some help in shaping a Biblical world view of manhood and womanhood I suggest that you consider The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. They have some excellent online books that will help guide your perspective on this increasingly misunderstood concept. Just click on the link above for the online books or browse yourself at
