The Gospel Garment of Submission (Part 2)

The headship of the husband is not rogue. It has guardrails. It has a pattern. And that pattern is Christ Himself. Husband headship is to parallel Christ’s headship of the church. Christ earned that headship by sacrificing His life for the church. So too, a husband earns the loving submission of his wife when he sacrificially loves her.

When the church stopped preaching that a wife should submit to her husband, it paved the way for the church to stop preaching that it’s wrong to have women preachers. Perhaps if these women preachers so adored by thousands upon thousands of women began submitting to their own husbands, their followers would begin doing so as well. So yes, any so-called woman preacher should “go home”. John MacArthur may have said it, but he was standing on Scripture. Titus 2:5 exhorts all women: “to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.”
