Outspoken critic and On-Air Personality  Daddy Freeze has reacted to comments credited to Bishop David Oyedepo, general overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners’ Chapel following a statement he made on his Instagram page on 3rd September.

Oyedepo in his post said: ”The only way to a fruitful marriage is total submission on the part of the wife. Until it is in place, every other thing she tries to do will be out of place. A woman who refuses to submit to her husband is disobeying God. As a woman, you might even be a minister of the gospel, and your husband is not, the Word of God still says to submit yourself to him. A submissive woman is precious in the sight of her husband – Ephesians 5:22.

Addressing the issue in an open letter to the cleric, the popular OAP opined that submission in marriage shouldn’t be a one-sided thing meant for the women alone, but should go both ways.

He wrote:

‘Dear Bishop Oyedepo, the submission goes both ways. It’s not reserved for women alone, rather both the husband and wife MUST submit to one another.

Ephesians 5:21
New International Version
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Now, let us always endeavor to quote scripture in context. We shouldn’t leave out the instruction given to the men, who must also be prepared to DIE for their wives like Christ died for the church, or is this because we live in a patriarchal and misogynistic society that we adopt one and leave out the other?

Ephesians 5:25
New Living Translation
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her.

Furthermore, men are instructed to love their wives as they love themselves before they receive respect. If a man cheats on his wife, beats her or doesn’t take care of her financially, how can he disillusion himself into believing that he’d get submission and respect from her?

Ephesians 5:33
New Living Translation
So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”
