A poll was taken a few years ago asking, both men and women this question, “Should wives submit to their husbands?”

(In 1998, the Southern Baptists also sparked controversy with their statement that wives should "submit graciously" to the "servant leadership" of their husbands. At that time, when asked if they concurred with that statement exactly as quoted, 69% of the public disagreed.)

Wow, nearly 70% disagree with what the Bible teaches.

Really? It seems very clear to me. This same thing is taught in several other places in Scripture:

1 Corinthians 11:3,9-12, Ephesians 5:22

1 Corinthians 14:34-35, 1 Timothy 2:11-15

Titus 2:5 1 Peter 3:1-6
