Sexism and the Bible

To love someone as Christ loves the church is to treat them with respect and consideration, not being harsh or rude. It also means being willing to give one’s life up for that other person. While that may not mean literally, the emphasis is on sacrificial love. Men who use Ephesians 5:22 to control women either conveniently have only read that one verse, or don’t care enough to abide by the parameters that Paul laid out for good husbands.
