Joyfully submitting to your husband
 
Ladies, even if you're not yet betrothed, please join in the discussion as it will come in useful for when you fall under the headship of a Godly man.

One of the many things the Bible is emphatic about is the role of a woman in the family. There are many scriptures that show this, but let's take a look first at what I've quoted in my signature.

Quote:

Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
5:23 For 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.
5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Unlike what LIEberal "Christians" and other unsaved trash try to say, there is no interpretation need. We are to submit ourselves to our husbands.

To give over or yield to the power or authority of another. That other would be our husbands. But how far are we to yield?
Again, it's crystal clear. As Jesus is the head of the church, the husband is the head of the woman. Do we obey Jesus with exceptions? No! As He commands, we obey. So it should be with our husbands. Some may say an exception is if he gives us an order that contradicts the Bible, but as long as we are married to men who are Saved, this will never be an issue, and really, no marriage that doesn't have Jesus in its center is a real marriage anyway.
Short of when I let Jesus into my heart, I'm never happier than when I'm joyfully submitting to my husband, whether it's making him a sandwich or cleaning the bathroom with a toothbrush because I know that's God's plan for me, or He wouldn't have been as explicit about our roles in His Holy Word.
So please, all the married women here, please share your stories of submission to your husbands. And to those young ladies who have yet to experience matrimony, tell us how you're preparing for your roles as your future husbands' underlings.

Cleaning the bathroom with a toothbrush? Is he too cheap to buy a mop?

No. We even have a maid. However, I must be reminded of my place in case I start getting ideas. Your husband may not care if you become a feminazi harpy, by my husband, Mr. Whitford, cares about what happens to my soul.

That definition wasn't bad, but when looking up words in the Bible, the Webster 1828 dictionary always gives the best definition. Webster even went so far as to use Bible verses as the example sentences, so if a word has multiple definitions, you know which connotation is correct.

Quote:

submit

SUBMIT', v.t. [L. submitto; sub, under, and mitto, to send.]
...
2. To yield, resign or surrender to the power, will or authority of another; with the reciprocal pronoun.
Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hand. Gen.16.
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands. Eph.5.
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man. 1 Pet. 2.

You filthy harlot! A mop will not get out all of the grime between the tiles. I hope you own a good pair of shower-shoes.

I doubt she even showers in the first place.

The best way I can serve my husband is to make his favorite dinner and when he gets off work to give him a back rub and keep the house clean and to do any command he says such as woman get in that kitchen and bake me a cake!:wub:

Actually, it will if you first sprinkle baking soda liberally over the tiles, then spray the soda with white vinegar. The foaming produced by the acid/alkali reaction dissloves soap scum and mineral deposits and it can just be rinsed or wiped away.

Trust you to find a way to work liberalism into a discussion of housework. :thumbdown:

I think she was referring to the fine details. I find it incredulous that YOU don't have a few old toothbrushes saved up for scrubbing hard to reach areas. What? You have them but don't use them? Shame!! What is your husband going to think of you!!!! (Or is he the one that you make scrub the shower with you holding the chain around his neck?).

That sounds like witchcraft to me. No chemical reaction cleans better than good old-fashioned elbow-grease.

However in your case, I will recommend that you try combining the cleaning power of ammonia with the whitening power of bleach. Be sure you shut the doors and windows first, turn off the bathroom fan, and place a towel against the bottom of the door.

If you want to be sure you get the full effect, you should duck tape plastic sheeting over the doors, windows, and vents. Be sure you have a full stomach, preferably something spicy.

Bless you, Pastor. I will have to remember that dictionary. If it was good enough for 1828, it's good enough for now and it will be true to the language before the LIEberals started having their way with dictionaries.

What kind of character does that build? Instead of learning to be a truly submissive wife, it sounds like you'd rather everyone be like a lazy Mexican't maid! For shame, Dances. For shame. :thumbdown:

Trying to get me to kill myself with ammonium chloride poisoning, eh? Too bad for you I took Basic Chemistry in high school.

Anyway, I don't use ammonia because I hate the way it smells, and I don't use chlorine bleach because it's toxic. I use non-toxic cleaning agents - hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and vinegar will clean pretty much everything in your home.

I don't happen to believe that scrubbing grout with a toothbrush builds character.

And you may get off on the whole submission bit, but I don't.

I don't hate Jesus. I think he was probably a very nice guy, who would not have made his wife scrub the bathroom with a toothbrush.

And what evidence do you have that Jesus had a wife?

Holy piffle, dude! I hope you don't seriously want her to try this. Even as a joke this isn't funny.

What are the dangers of mixing these common cleaning products?
Mixing bleach and ammonia:
When bleach is mixed with ammonia, toxic gases called chloramines are produced. Exposure to chloramine gases can cause:
  • coughing
  • shortness of breath
  • chest pain
  • wheezing
  • nausea
  • watery eyes
  • irritation to the throat, nose and eyes
  • pneumonia and fluid in the lungs

Rinsing one's mouth with hydrogen peroxide is a good way to whiten teeth - just make sure you don't swallow it as it is also a powerful emetic. In case you weren't aware, hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient in most of those expensive tooth bleaching kits.

2 parts baking soda and 1 part table salt make an effective dentifrice - they are abrasive enough to clean the teeth, but not abrasive enough to damage the enamel.
