Wives are not required to love their husbands

Filed under: Doctrine — Henry Imler @ 12:10 am

An exercise in error.

Ephesians 5:22:

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

Ephesians 5:25a:

Husbands, love your wives,

So husbands don’t have to submit to their wives and wives don’t have to love their husbands.

Beware of the prooftext.
