What does submission mean?
Marrieds are yoked.
Isn't that mutual submission?
How do you know people aren't walking from headship to complementarianism?
You have to first trust someone to submit to them.
Doesn't that imply mutuality?
Why can't some people just grant submission out of deference to God til the other person wakes up and mutually submits?
God does qualify this. He says don't be yoked with an unbeliever.
It doesn't mean the world which is heavily carnal and likes to rule and take advantage of the weak understands this very well.
I would read up on spiritual formation if I were you.
Or maybe Dallas Willard.
You're already a seeker but maybe you're on what J.I. Packer calls a by-path.
