A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

What does God say about submission?

We recognize that for many victims of domestic abuse, beliefs about submission and headship within marriage are one of the things that locks them into the abuse, and at some point they want to examine and perhaps re-evaluate these beliefs in order to get free. So for many survivors, part of the healing journey is exploring the issue of submission and what the Bible means when it says “the husband is head of the wife”. And what other passages about submission mean.

When do I submit and when do I stand?

Should wives submit to harsh husbands just slaves submitting to harsh master? (1 Peter 2 & 3)

Does “Turn the Other Cheek Mean We Must Submit to Abuse?

1 Peter 3:6 — Sarah’s children do what is right and do not give way to fear
