Remember when the Sydney Anglicans had to clarify that their understanding of marriage, with “loving, sacrificial leadership of a husband and the intelligent, voluntary submission of a wife”, shouldn’t be used to justify domestic violence?
2007 Session of Synod Resolutions
Biblical pattern of marriage
(a) affirms that the relationship of loving, sacrificial leadership of a husband and the intelligent, voluntary submission of a wife is the Biblical pattern of marriage, and
(b) totally rejects the use of this Biblical pattern to justify any form of domestic abuse, and
(c) totally rejects all forms of domestic abuse, and
(d) expresses its concern for those children, women and men, who are victims of domestic abuse, and
(e) calls on Christian husbands and wives to use their God-given responsibilities for the good of their families, and
(f) calls on ministers to teach congregations the Biblical model for marriage and also to teach against domestic abuse.
So they might not be great people to look to when it comes to defining marriage. Just saying.
