I have a brand new post on the definition of Ephesians 5:21 mutual submission in Paul’s epistle. This post comes as a response to a criticism that I am a bigot because of my views of submission in Ephesians 5:21-22. This post is the second part of my response to Tom.
I have moved my blog to a new site and this post on submitting defined is found at this link: new post can be found here. My blog has moved to mmoutreach.org/wim as it is a secure site.

Is it bigotry? Answering a critic on Ephesians 5:22 and submission
Is it bigotry to suggest that the term “submit” in Ephesians 5:22 is not in the original text and that translators who imported it into the text may be misled to believe that Christian submission is one-sided? Apparently, one of my readers says recorded his criticism saying that my view borders on bigotry. I set the challenge aside to craft a response when I had time to research a complete answer. I failed to answer in a timely fashion, and another project and ill health put this research on the back shelf. It is now time to provide the evidence for the missing verb in Ephesians 5:22. This post responds to the first part of the criticism that I copied below. I hope that my readers will find the discussion helpful.
