The submission of women?

This was s a side note to a submission discussion

I have a stinking suspicion that those who yell the loudest about the Biblical Mandate for the submission of women are the very same ones who are the most hen-pecked!! Now, this may sound like a contradiction, but consider the reality that those who make the most noise about righteous living turn out to be the same ones who fall the hardest. It's called Law, and it is a surefire way to get caught up in the very sin you give the most attention to.

Can't you just picture these preachers, who stand behind their pulpits and preach these tough messages about women keeping silence, going home and buckling under their meek wives' every request? Even psychologists have figured out these patterns of transference. Because we find ourselves unable to express our true thoughts and feelings in real one-on-one relationships we react by trying to force others to respect our authority or our beliefs or our real thoughts.

Random Shovelquote: The Advice of God? (view all shovelquotes)

there is no advice in this world – even if it comes from a Bible verse or a preacher’s sermon – that can produce God’s work within you. Oh, it might make you appear more spiritually productive, but the working of God doesn’t come from the practical side of the grave … but from the living side that has risen past it. When I tell you that Christ is your life, I’m telling you about the one and only present-tense reality that causes you to live as one who is truly alive in this world. source
