God’s Umbrella of Protection

The Bible does not require the submission of women to men, but rather of a woman to a man.

The submission of a woman to a man, far from making her submissive to other men, protects her from obligations to other men. This provides her with an umbrella of protection (that is, her husband) from other men. She is to be submissive to her own husband, and the Bible teaches clearly that no one can serve two masters.
