Nigerian OAP, Daddy Freeze has responded to Bishop Oyedepo who said that the only way to a fruitful marriage is when a wife totally submits to her husband.

Earlier on, Bishop Oyedepo had posted a statement about submission, he revealed that it is biblical for women to be submissive to their husbands to ensure a fruitful marriage.

He said: ‘’The only way to a fruitful marriage is total submission on the part of the wife. Until it is in place, every other thing she tries to do will be out of place. A woman who refuses to submit to her husband is disobeying God. As a woman, you might even be a minister of the gospel, and your husband is not, the Word of God still says to submit yourself to him. A submissive woman is precious in the sight of her husband – Ephesians 5:22.

However, in a reply to Oyedepo’s statement, Daddy Freeze disagreed, noting that submission goes both ways. He noted that a woman can only be submissive if the husband respects and loves her.

He wrote: “Dear Bishop Oyedepo, submission goes both ways. It’s not reserved for women alone, rather both the husband and wife MUST submit to one another.

Ephesians 5:21
New International Version
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Now, let us always endeavor to quote scripture in context. We shouldn’t leave out the instruction given to the men, who must also be prepared to DIE for their wives like Christ died for the church, or is this because we live in a patriarchal and misogynistic society that we adopt one and leave out the other?

Ephesians 5:25
New Living Translation
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her.

Furthermore, men are instructed to love their wives as they love themselves, before they receive respect. If a man cheats on his wife, beats her or doesn’t take care of her financially, how can he disillusion himself into believing that he’d get submission and respect from her?

Ephesians 5:33
New Living Translation
So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”
