Folorunso Alakija: On submission in marriage

Billionaire businesswoman, Folorunso Alakija has addressed the perceived misconception about the Bible’s instruction for wives to submit to their husbands.

Preaching in her church recently, the clergyman stated that many men have abused the word ‘submission’ as postulated in the bible.

According to her, many of these men have chosen to ignore the subsequent verses which admonishes couples to submit one to another, and for husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the Church.

Sharing the video on her Facebook page, Mrs Alakija noted that submission is meant to be reciprocated and not use as a control measure for men to get their wives to do their biddings.

Her words: “There have been many arguments for and against, many controversies about this word submission. Many have twisted it to suit what they desire. Many husbands have used it as a control measure. That’s not what it is meant for. In fact, it is for unity and not for control.”
