In the recent edition of The Journal of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, Joshua Harris
contributes an incredible article from 1 Peter 3: 1-7.
Here is an excerpt:
“The myth of the perfect spouse is one that can influence many of us. As Christians we can even put our own spiritual spin on it and think, “It would be easier to obey what God tells me to do as a wife, if I just had a different husband.” Or “I could cherish and be understanding if I were married to a more cherishable and understandable woman.”
We don’t need to wait for a study to know that this is wrong. God’s Word to husbands and wives in 1 Peter 3 isn’t qualified. It doesn’t say, “If your husband deserves it, be submissive.” It doesn’t say, “If your wife gives you respect, then you honor her.””DON’T MISS THIS ARTICLE Read here
