New Testament Admonition Of Women

Written by on 03/31/2020

In the New Testament, the first admonition is always to the woman. See also Eph. 5:22 and Col. 3:18. There is a reason for this. It is because women are the weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7) and thereby easily deceived. 1 Tim. 2:17 verifies this when it states, “Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” Women are supposed to be in “subjection” to their husbands for several reasons. First, so that the man can teach her, and keep her from being deceived. 1 Cor. 14:35 says, “And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home.” Of course this is between a saved couple. Secondly, they are to be in subjection to their husbands “that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:5). God created woman for man (1 Cor. 11:8,9) to be his helper (Gen. 2:18), and when she doesn’t do that, she goes against God’s will in her life, and rebels against God’s word. Finally, saved wives are a type of the Bride of Christ according to Ephesians 5. As such, they have a tremendous responsibility. They are to be an example to their husbands on how to love and treat Jesus Christ. They are also to teach their children to obey their husbands who in turn are supposed to be a type of Christ. Now, if every saved born again married couple would keep that in mind, they would have a wonderful marriage. This verse is an exhortation to the wives to have a good testimony for Christ’s sake. *Robert Breaker*
