A Universal Hierarchy

1 Corinthians 11:3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

PERSONAL COMMENTARY

1. Head of woman is man
2. Head of every man is Christ
3. Head of Christ is God

This passage gives a hierarchy to the universe.
1. God
2. Christ
3. Man
4. Woman

I’m sure there are many women who won’t appreciate being at the bottom of the totem pole.

    “I’m sure there are many women who won’t appreciate being at the bottom of the totem pole.”

    Yeah, many heathen women won’t. Christian women on the other hand shouldn’t have a problem with it, rather take delight in it.

    What’s your point?

  • God is Love

    Ephesians 5:21-32
    Contemporary English Version (CEV)
    Wives and Husbands

    21 Honor Christ and put others first. 22 A wife should put her husband first, as she does the Lord. 23 A husband is the head of his wife, as Christ is the head and the Savior of the church, which is his own body. 24 Wives should always put their husbands first, as the church puts Christ first.

    25 A husband should love his wife as much as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it. 26 He made the church holy by the power of his word, and he made it pure by washing it with water. 27 Christ did this, so that he would have a glorious and holy church, without faults or spots or wrinkles or any other flaws.

    28 In the same way, a husband should love his wife as much as he loves himself. A husband who loves his wife shows that he loves himself. 29 None of us hate our own bodies. We provide for them and take good care of them, just as Christ does for the church, 30 because we are each part of his body. 31 As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother to get married, and he becomes like one person with his wife.” 32 This is a great mystery, but I understand it to mean Christ and his church.
