1 Corinthians 7:2 (KJV) No Longer Truth

1 Corinthians 7:2 (KJV)
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
Much of modern Christianity often has an unbalanced and I believe unhealthy view of the Biblical family. In this view the husband is the head and possessor of all things related to his family. This includes his children and, in this view, his wife. She is his own wife. Her life belongs to him. She is to live to please and serve him.
This is not only unhealthy it is unbalanced. Notice that our text teaches that the husband is every bit as much the property of the wife as she is of him.
What we see here is the principle of the letter and of the spirit of the law. The Bible teaches truths that are
  • Inerrant, 
  • Eternal and 
  • Profitable 
but only when they are practiced in the context of all the Bible. Any truth taught out of balance is no longer truth.
This is true in the home. It is also true in finances, standards and doctrine.
