Reddit: women obey your husbands!

This needs more attention.


When I was a pre-teen girl siting in church one day, the pastor said “Wives, obey your husbands, husbands, love you wives.” Immediately, it hit me- why didn’t he just say ‘Wives and husbands, love each other and respect each other.’ Why does the wife have to obey the husband? Aren’t they equal? Why the asymmetry? Then I learned that what he said was supported by the Bible. That started a journey that led to me discarding Christianity as being a fake religion created by men to control women. By 13, I was an atheist just going through the motions. I still can’t wrap my head around why more women are Christian than men. It seems like it should be the other way around.

Scriptural citatations:

And it’s not just Peter, it’s also Ephesians 5:22-24.


And before someone says it’s old testament and doesn’t count, read Matthew 5:17.
