House Divided Cannot Stand

A house divided cannot stand. If we do not abide by and in God's hierarchy we can expect our house to be divided and for it to fail or even collapse. Why do you think that divorce is so common in this country? Women have the idea that they should run the house and even the church. Where do men come into the picture these days? They are being minimized. This is not godly. God ordered our 'social and spiritual' life here on earth in a way that is for our own good. Men should love their wives just as Christ loved the church  and women should submit to their husbands (Ephesians 5), not as slaves but to come under their love and protection. Yes, women need to be protected from this world and from themselves so that they can have a godly relationship with the Lord and receive forgiveness and salvation.

When either husbands or wives fall from God's order of living, family suffers. Men suffer and so do women. A house divided cannot stand ~ Matthew 12:25.
