1 Peter 3:1 & 2
Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.
This could quite possibly be one of the most wrongly quoted and applied verses of scripture. We are probably all familiar with it as many preachers/teachers have tried to broadly apply it to Christian households. However, this verse is meant for a man and a woman that did not know Jesus before they were married. We know this because this letter was written to scattered Jewish Christians and, according to Mosaic Law, Jews were forbidden from marrying Gentiles. In this case, it appears that after marriage the woman came to faith in Christ. Peter tells the wife, in that case, to be voluntarily subject to her husband so that he too may come to believe. He used the example of the suffering of Christ in chapter two to be the example and reason for her willing submission. The submission that he refers to has limits in that, as a Christian, she is not to willfully follow him into doing sinful things.
