SORT BY Relevancy
1 Peter 3:1-7American Standard Version (ASV)
3 In like manner, ye wives, be in subjection to your won husbands; that, even if any obey not the word, they may without the word be gained by the behavior of their wives;
2 beholding your chaste behavior coupled with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on apparel;
4 but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible apparel of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
5 For after this manner aforetime the holy women also, who hoped in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands:
6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose children ye now are, if ye do well, and are not put in fear by any terror.
7 Ye husbands, in like manner, dwell with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor unto the woman, as unto the weaker vessel, as being also joint-heirs of the grace of life; to the end that your prayers be not hindered.

I am going to be dealing with a subject that is so personal and so private that those who have it don't like to talk about it.
Genesis 6:14 Now it happened, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the [a]sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful anddesirable; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose and desired. 3 Then theLord said, “My Spirit shall not strive and remain with man forever, because he is indeed flesh [sinful, corrupt—given over to sensual appetites]; nevertheless his days shall yet be [b]a hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were Nephilim (men of stature, notorious men) on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God lived with the daughters of men, and they gave birth to their children. These were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown (great reputation,
People make the world go around. That's a fact. Without people, we really would be a 'pale blue ball’ like Sagan once said. How we interact with each other helps to build families, communities, and cultures. All this month on the Parker J Cole show, we will be discussing relationships -- from husband and wives to friends and siblings. Each week, our commentary will focus on particular aspect of the relational wheel.
This week, we'll be discussing husbands and wives. This is a particularly hot topic, especially in the Church as various views of what a husband's and wife's role is according to biblical teaching. So we're up for the challenge. Join me as I talked with Pastor Mike Spaulding from Soaring Eagle Radio and the Transforming Word as we talk about the first relationship God ever made -- husband and wife.

Many cultural practices still reflect beliefs that marriage is a man's "purchase" of a woman, even the practice of paying a "dowry" comes from this concept of a "bride price" and in many cultures the attitude of the society is that a woman is a man's property. In some countries, "honor killings" are allowed in which a man may kill his wife if he feels she has dishonored him. Even in America, so-called "honor killings" have gone unpunished in which a woman maried someone the family disapproved of, and she was killed. Both Islam and Christianity uphold interpretations of scripture that claim women as inferior and subservient to men. It is difficult for women to stand up to interpretations that their husbands may beat them for "dsobedience" if they accept the notion from so called Islamic "scholars" that "Allah said so." This is the same way Africans brought to America were convinced for generations to accept their abuse, Christians claimed that "God said so" in the Bible. Family, we will not solve the problem of violence until we corrrect religious misinterpretations that condone oppression of women. Sisters, your soul knows this is wrong. I used to be one of those that thought under certain "conditions" a man may "chastise" his wife, until Allah revealed to me the falseness of this belief. There can be no real love where there is fear. How do we create marriages in which men and women understand mutual value and respect, and the body which houses your soul belongs to you and you alone?
The concept of marriage in many cultures still reflects a concept of "ownership" of a woman, reflected in a number of societies where a man is allowed to beat, even kill his wife inasmuch as she is considered his "property". Religious teachings tend to reinforce those ancient cultural practices, and it is a big challenge to remove wrong beliefs and abusive behavior when religious "scholars" claim that "God's Word" says it, so it must be obeyed. Both Muslims and Christians are upholding interpretations of scriptures that condone abuse of women and women are too afraid to refute them. Family, we will not solve the problem of violence in our society until we correct the relationship of men and women and make it one of mutual respect and equal value. A number of so-called "honor killings" have gone unpunished among Muslims, even here in America, in which a woman who married someone the family disapproved of was killed. There are Muslims that will swear that the Quran condones beatings of wives. I used to be one of them, until God revealed to me the falseness of this belief. Sisters, your soul knows this is wrong. How do we correct religious misinterpretationsand create marriages of mutual respect in which no one owns anybody and the body in which your soul resides belongs to you and you alone?
