  • In this situation the best advice I could give would be to the wife. Get a divorce.
  • Oy vey. Only if they live in caves and walk on all fours.
  • I dont know about your beliefs, they are not biblical because the bible says to obey the law put above us, and wife beating is definatley against the law.
  • You're saying that when your wife does not obey you, you beat her, and make her pump out babies? You do know that this is illegal right? If this is true, I can't wait until she calls the cops on you and you get charged with assault and battery.
  • why exactly must a man force a woman to obey when God never forced it upon anybody and he's God? he gave free will to all didn't he? [yea i know, NT paul was a bit of a sexist in some senses, but that's paul's word not God.] no birth control isn't my idea but hey i think catholics by doctrine pretty much say that. but exactly why the whole woman beating concept? and why in present times would you encourage that? [this is an honest question no DR's for you or anything, i just want to know]
  • I guess i must have missworded my question. I AM a girl and i believe this.
  • While I find your beliefs to be offensive and archaic, I will not belittle you for them. However, the others do have a point. When your beliefs cause harm to other people, no matter how much reverence you hold them in, they are unlawful. I am sure that some sects of Christianity and Catholicism still share your beliefs, and while I'm not terribly familiar with "apostolic" beliefs it sounds about right. Be careful when following "divine law" in modern times. You may find yourself incarcerated.
  • Read the Bible and get a proper perspective on it. Paul said to husbands love your wife as Christ loves the church. Jesus died to save the church not beat her into submission. Get out of any church quickly that teaches such nonsense.
  • Good luck finding someone to date with THAT attitude!
  • ok, so lemme get this straight, your a FEMALE?! and you believe this madness?!, wow, what kind of self esteem do you have? pls open your eyes love...no one treats another person that way, no matter who they are...it's unimaginable...who is telling you this anyways...
  • I visited this new church and most of the people believe this way but also they believe no tv, long hair and skirts on girls, girls dont work, girls are quiet and submissive and if they disobey then they should get punishment from their husbands he is over her and his children.
  • Why would you want to be in a relationship that basically treats you like the slave of a potentially violent dictator? A major potential dilemma for you would be whether you'd obey your husband if he wanted you to use birth control.
  • My only hope is that you never get married. if you are I hope she leaves you and reports you for any physical abuse. No were in the Bible does it say use physical force if your wife does not obey. What a load of shit
  • Word up posters- the person asking this question is FEMALE.
  • Not all apostolics belive this, lilonear. Only the misogynistic cretans. I would suggest to you that you were born with the same potential, talent, freedom and intellect as any man. It would be a shame not to ewxercise it to make the world a better palce and you a better person. Fanaticism is possible in every religion. When you play into the fanatical elements, you tend to miss the core of the belief system. I hope you can educate yourself enough to understand that there are better ways to live.
  • If your husband told you to kill your child because it was a female would you do it? If he toil you to provide sex to his friends would you do it? You are assuming that the man will be fair in his treatment of you, but that is not always the case. Every human being is just as valuable as every other human being, and I would certianly like to know where in the bible these people are taking their lessons from.
  • Get me a letter from the Pope stating that he beleives as you do and I'll consider if I beleive most apostolics beleive this too.
  • The Bible says we should be submissive to our husbands but the Bible gives guidelines also on how a husband should conduct himself - AS CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH. As long as my husband is conducting himself in that manner, being submissive is not a problem. God also gave women minds - we aren't stupid. He doesn't expect us to live in an abusive situation. We aren't slaves we are intended to be helpmates. As far as birth control, I don't recall the Bible speaking one way or the other. Sometimes we get caught up in man-made rules not Biblical ones. There again, we are smart enough not to take someone's word for what is in the Bible. We need to look for ourselves.
  • ummm...security...
  • The way you think is actually the direct opposite of how a real man thinks. That's the ironic part of it. Oh. You're a female. Well that's just sad to see then. You won't ever know what a real man is like.
  • If you want to believe that..then that is fine with me..but I don't think you'll find much agreement with your point of view. You are not talking about men: I thought we had risen above the neanderthal stage of development. I thought that civilization would always triumph. Guess in your case I was wrong.
  • Hell get a cat-a-nine tails and beat till you get happy. PS-get the gun out her hand first.
  • you sound like someone who has no self-esteem and does not have the confidence to make her own decisions, therefore, needs someone to make them for her. If this is the life you want, by all means, go for it. i would not last 5 minutes with someone "putting me in my place". A relationship is a union of TWO people who SHARE, where one person's input is just as important as the other's. I have found that when a man (or woman) has to be in control of a relationship and demands "obedience" from the other it is only a very small step to cross over the line into abuse. Good luck to you...you're going to need it.
  • wow i am so shocked that people believe this is a right way! i feel very strongly that everything in a relationship shoul be shared! if SHE doesnt want to do something she should not be forced and vice versa dont believe in birth control? what happens after youve had 7 kids will this still be true?! nobody should be made to do anything they do not want to do and no man is above a woman and no woman is above a man these days things are equal and balanced and i had no idea anybody still feels like this!!
  • Christ said the husband it to treat the wife as he did the church. If you read the bible then you know what that means. Christ did not abuse the church he loved it. When it says the wife should submit to the husband it doesn't mean you are to beat the crap out of her. It means the woman is to allow the man to take care of all the issues without interference. The man is to also make sure his household is in order and are obedient to God. The woman is to have a humble spirit and in submission to God also. He is to treat her with respect love and protection. Actually I believe you know better , I think you were just wanting to see what kind of responses you would get.
  • that's kinda sexist 0_o
  • Does this sort of thing still exist in America? I can see it happening in some Third World countries (sans the Christianity), but in America? Hopefully, we're more civilized than that.
  • wow, you're a pig. You are not her master, nor ruler, she has her own thoughts, preferences, and has every right to them. As for birth control, that is HER body, and if she wishes to use birth control then she has a RIGHT to do so. If I was your wife I'd dump ya in a heartbeat, or take a frying pan upside your head. What is wrong with you?
  • Ain't nuthin like controlling one's wife! There are at least 32 verses in the Bible that speak against controlling anyone. Even with you being a female this is an archaic belief and in the Bible it says husbands love your wife as Christ loves the Church. If what you said is in your Bible that you read pray for God's wisdom and get another one that is God's words and not any man's words or a some individual's opinion book.
