Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.
Note 7 at Eph 5:24: From the context, it is to be understood that this submission is in physical matters. A man does not have spiritual headship over the woman (see notes 5-6 at Eph 5:23). Also, remember that submission and obedience are not synonymous (see note 2 at Eph 5:22). Paul was not saying that a wife has to obey her husband if he is commanding her to sin. Paul was saying that the wife should voluntarily yield to the authority of the husband in physical matters.
