Deepertruth Member Terry Delp with a word on Ephesians 5

I've been going back and forth with a person on YouTube about Ephesians 5, she keeps wanting to draw battle lines between husband and wife.

I find it obscene that anyone would enter into a relationship with an antagonistic attitude. Please allow me to clear this up for all of you who do not understand Ephesians 5.

The man is the leader of the household. Period. End of story. If the man is weak, and emasculated and fails in his God given role as Priest, Prophet and King of his family, then that family is disordered.

A Godly man will treat his wife as his Queen, and she will treat him as her King. The man protects, provides and leads his family to Holiness.

The woman helps him along the way, knowing he is the leader she will look to him for guidance.

It really is that simple and if you are in a marriage that does not follow these Biblical principles, Satan has a foothold and you need to cry out to God for help. I suggest reading Stephanie Gordon's book "Ask your husband" Men are taught from childhood how to treat women, this book teaches women how to treat men.

I am SO thankful for my wife Retta Delp, my Queen and my Best Friend.

Thank you Terry, interestingly, when we evangelize men, we evangelize families, when we evangelize families, we evangelize nations. When we evangelize nations we evangelize the world.

Ephesians 5:21-33

Be subordinate to one another out of reverence for Christ.

22Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord.

23For the husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the church, he himself the savior of the body.

24As the church is subordinate to Christ, so wives should be subordinate to their husbands in everything.

25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and handed himself over for her

26to sanctify her, cleansing her by the bath of water with the word,

27that he might present to himself the church in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.

28So [also] husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

29For no one hates his own flesh but rather nourishes and cherishes it, even as Christ does the church,

30because we are members of his body.

31“For this reason a man shall leave [his] father and [his] mother

and be joined to his wife,

and the two shall become one flesh.”

32This is a great mystery, but I speak in reference to Christ and the church.

33In any case, each one of you should love his wife as himself, and the wife should respect her husband.
