Honor / Love / Respect

The Holy Bible tells “Children Honor you Father and Mother”. The Holy Bible tells us to honor only our parents and no one else. Loving your parents is not honoring. You need to honor your parents.

The Holy Bible tells us “ Husbands, love your wives”. It doesn’t say honor your wife  or respect your wife. It clearly says love your wife as Christ also loved the Church.

The Holy Bible tells us Wives respect your Husband. It doesn’t say love your husband. It doesn’t say honor your husband. It says respect your husband.
