Help can be Active or Passive

So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?”

And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.

(Acts 8:30-31) NKJV

If we had to fix a car what would be the best kind of help? A grease monkey would be helpful, sure, someone to hand us tools and hold the drop light. It would also be helpful to have a supervisor, someone who had experience fixing cars who could show us what to do. Both are help, one is active, the other is passive.

If the woman was cursed to take a passive role then, logically, that was because she had formerly been the active leader. This explains the natural tendency that women have of wanting to organize and direct. It also explains the New Testament teaching about marriage. The order which was established by the curse is stated very clearly:

But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

(1 Corinthians 11:3) NKJV

There’s a lot more teaching besides this, but we’re going to distill it into a simple statement which shows how marriage can embody the relationship of cause and effect and be faithful to the the established order and the correct relationship between husband and wife..

Wives, for the sake of maintaining the established order:
let your husband think that he’s in charge, it’s how to get what you want.
