An outspoken evangelical leader preached a potentially controversial sermon this weekend, saying ”nagging wives” are like water torture.
Mark Driscol, pastor of the Mars Hill Church in Seattle, made the comments Sunday during a sermon based on a Bible passage from Ephesians, which reads in part:
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
While the passage does not mean men are smarter than women, Driscoll explains, he says it does mean the “wife sets a pattern for others to respect her husband.”
“If the wife disrespects the husband in front of his coworkers, will they respect the husband? No,” Driscoll said. “No. Women who publicly disrespect their husbands, they encourage others to disrespect their husbands. And this doesn’t mean you don’t disagree with your husband but you do so respectfully, privately.”
