just getting cross with a couple of self appointed messengers of God, who think they are the only people qualified to interpret the Bible. So here you go, I think the Bible was written hundreds/thousands of years ago - yes the Dead Sea Scrolls were only discovered recently, but that doesn't change the fact that the writings are ancient - The word 'silly' meant blessed in old English times, that is not how the word is used today, so I can't help but believe some meaning has been lost throughout the changing face of language, no matter how learned the translators are. I also know the Books are written by Men (not Gods) and of course there is a chance there is a male driven slant ( of course the bible tells wives to obey their husbands - as if a man would write that wives don't have to do what their husband says !) You can dispute all I have said ( & you will) but that doesn't make me wrong, your opinion is just as human as mineAnswer Question

First, take a breath in through your nose,.............now out through your mouth. Relax your shoulders, roll your head. Better? The Bible does tell husbands to honor their wives, to respect their, wives, and it gives instructions about being good husbands. We just focus on the "woman" angle. And, yes, it was written by men, but these men were divinely influenced. In other words, man's hands, God's words. It is that faith that keeps it relative. And finally, the language has changed, but you have to read the Bible. (I'm not implying you haven't.). It is written in a way that it transcends the ages. Even with the archaic language (King James is long dead you know.) the Bible still touches souls. Don't be such a feminist that you don't realize there are instructions to the men in our lives too.

I don't know why people always get hung up on the whole women have to obey her husband deal, yes it says that but it also says that a women is a fragile being and that the man is supposed to treat her like she is fragile, it also says once your married that man has no say over his body but the wife does and wise versa (not in those specific words but you get my point). You hardly ever see men treating there wife's as a fragile being, there rude, crude and everything in between, same goes for women obeying there husband it hardly ever happens most of women are opinionated, out spoken and do what they set out to do. If men and women both treated each other how the Bible says to treat each other I don't think we would have problems obeying our men and men treating us fragile and that would make for a more happy marriage.
