I BELIEVE the male is the stronger sex, and as such he is to give honor unto the woman, the weaker sex (Pet. 3:7).
I BELIEVE the man is to be the head (ruler) of the woman (Eph. 5:23).
I BELIEVE the woman is to submit herself unto the man (Eph. 5:22,24; 1 Tim. 2:11).
I BELIEVE the man is to love the woman as he loves himself (Eph. 5:28).
I BELIEVE the man has the primary responsibility of providing the income for the home (1 Tim. 5:8).
I BELIEVE women should bear children and be keepers at home (guide the affairs of the home) (1 Tim. 5:14).
I BELIEVE women must not usurp authority (be domineering, or have dominion) over the man (1 Tim. 2:12).
I BELIEVE a woman cannot, by the authority of God, preach in the assembly of the Lord’s people (1 Cor. 14:34,35).
I BELIEVE women are to be help-meets with the man (Gen. 2:18).
I BELIEVE women are to love, and respect their husbands (Eph. 5:33).
I BELIEVE a woman who realizes her place in God’s plan is worth more than all of earth’s riches (Prov. 31:10).
