this is taken out of his sermon:
One reason that men abuse their wives is because women rebel against their husband’s God-given authority, a Southern Baptist scholar said Sunday in a Texas church.
What that means to the man, Ware said, is: “He will have to rule, and because he’s a sinner, this can happen in one of two ways. It can happen either through ruling that is abusive and oppressive–and of course we all know the horrors of that and the ugliness of that–but here’s the other way in which he can respond when his authority is threatened. He can acquiesce. He can become passive. He can give up any responsibility that he thought he had to the leader in the relationship and just say ‘OK dear,’ ‘Whatever you say dear,’ ‘Fine dear’ and become a passive husband, because of sin.”
Ware said God created men and women equally in God’s image but for different roles.
"As wife and mother, rather than chafing against it, rather than bucking against it, rather than wanting to be a man, wanting to be in a man’s position, wanting to teach and exercise authority over men,” Ware said. “Rather than wanting that, she accepts and embraces who she is as woman, because she knows God and she knows his ways are right and good, so she is marked as a Christian by her submission to God and in that her acceptance of God’s design for her as a woman.”
are you ------- kidding me? so if a woman doesnt obey her husband its ok for him to give her a good beating to show her whos boss? no woman should ever be blamed for being beaten up by their husbands! these men use the excuse of Gods words to justify their acts and its wrong. I wonder how many women went home that day, got beat, and thought it was their fault because they didnt obey their husbands, all in the name of the Lord. when Ware suggests that it is a domineering woman who incites her husband to abuse...he obviously has no idea that the exact opposite is usually the case. i cant beleive this guy is a professor who teaches this kind of bullshit.
