“Submission is not reserved for women alone”- Daddy Freeze replies Bishop Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo

Mr.Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, a Nigerian-Romanian broadcaster and radio talk show host has given a reply to Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder and head of the Living Faith Church after he said the only way to a fruitful marriage is total submission on the part of the wife.

Oyedepo in a post shared on his Instagram page, said that the only way to a fruitful marriage is total submission on the part of the wife, as he urges women to be submissive to their husbands.

Daddy Freeze, the controversial media personality, who is a strong critic of Nigerian pastors; has given another opinion different from Bishop Oyedepo’s comment on his Instagram page, as he reveals that submission goes both ways.

“Dear Bishop Oyedepo, 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”, Daddy Freeze writes.
