Headship Versus Blind Obedience


This post is a response to a subscriber question.  It was asked how is the Biblical Headship of I Corinthians 11 any different than blind obedience.  I felt like this is a great question to discuss.  This video is my response.

Below the video are some of the scriptures I was mentioning in the video that I would link to.  These are just excerpts that cut to the point, but I encourage you to look them up and read the whole chapters these are put in.  Verify the context, etc.  To me, the Bible is pretty black and white on this issue.  Be blessed as you study His Word.






Ephesians 5
22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
****************
33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Romans 12: 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I Timothy 2: 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence

I Corinthians 14:34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.
35And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

I Peter
1Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
3Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
4But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
5For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
6Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

Titus 2
3The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

  1. After watching several of your videos, I have wondered about something and this video is the perfect I'll to ask about it. How do you view questioning how or why your husband has come to a conclusion? I don't mean "Why? Why? Why?" questioning like a two year old but "Why/how did you decide this? Can you help me to understand where you're coming from?" type questioning. Like you mentioned in your own marriage, my husband and I discuss things and he seems my thoughts/opinions before making decisions. He takes my counsel into consideration because he sees value in my contribution. Sometimes he can't give me a why or how and that's perfectly fine, I trust him and know that right or wrong, whatever he decides he decides because he wants what is best and most profitable for me/us. Now, I will freely confess that accepting his decision is much much easier for me when he can explain, but in the end, his decision is the one I will abide with.
