B. Holy Echad Marriage & the Elohim Principle
15. The Challenge of Patriarchal Marriage
15.1 This is the Elohim Principle in marriage otherwise known as 'Patriarchal Marriage', meaning 'father-ruling'.
15.2 When Paul says that "the husband is the head of the wife" it is this headship principle that is being referred to.
15.3 This is also one of the most twisted scriptures in Christendom as believers try to wriggle out of the plain sense or p'shat of the text.
15.4 It is with such 'challenging' scriptures - 'challenging' in the sense that they go against the grain of the humanistic and atheistic philosophy that governs modern society, not to mention our own carnal nature - that believers reveal how much they actually mean when they say that the Bible is Yahweh's 'infallible word'.
15.5 It's at this point and with Scriptures such at these that believers - in truth, only partial believers - start balking.
15.6 May I underline the passage that sends waves of terror or anger through the feminists?
15.7 "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to (in the same way that you do to) the Master (Yah'shua)".
