Wives, be careful how you speak and behave in public
11 “If two men fight together, and the wife of one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of the one attacking him, and puts out her hand and seizes him by the genitals, 12 then you shall cut off her hand; your eye shall not pity her. (Deuteronomy 25:11-12)
In the past I had a boss whose wife worked as a subordinate. However, the wife would often publicly put down her husband in front of the staff. The wife would frequently say that she would not do as her husband said, she was not bound by his authority. Eventually, the wife was the undoing of the husband, who lost his job as boss because he was not able to exercise proper authority in the work place.
It is a wicked thing for a woman to belittle a man's manhood in a public place. God's ordained penalty is mutilation without pity. An attack upon a man's manhood is an attach upon the image of God in man. When women belittle men, they attack God Himself. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.
Many of the judgements of God abroad in the land can find their root provocation at the feet of radical feminism and its belittling of the manhood of men.
