T.D. Jakes Rejects the Idea That Women Should Submit to Men

Women are not to be submissive to men, Bishop T.D. Jakes said at a recent event. Rather, she is only to be submissive to her husband. 

"The Bible talks about women being submissive, not to men, but to her own husband ... God is setting up an organizational structure for family, it has nothing to do with anything outside the family," Jakes said. 

Indeed, in Ephesians, Paul tells wives to submit to their husbands, not to men in general. 

"Wives, be submissive to your own husbands as unto the Lord," Paul writes. "For the husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head and Savior of the church, which is His body. But as the church submits to Christ, so also let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it." 

Do you agree with Jakes?


  1. yes oo,we have gyo be submissive to our husband and some men in our life,like our fathers and brothers but i fryou are married there is a limit to the submissiveness

  2. Hmmmm not many women know this..

  3. Totally. Some men be expecting you to submit to them when you have absolutely no concern with them. However, let's not rule out the place of general respect for all humans in general. Some women are so insultive it is sad. Learn to respect ppl, no matter their position.
