Transfer Authority in Marriage
Recently, a wife called me with a desperate plea for help. Her husband was addicted to pornography and it was ruining their marriage. He had given up any hope of overcoming it. What made their situation even more devastating was that he is the pastor of a church! When she sought help for their marriage from others, her husband became angry and told her that she was operating out from under his authority. He threatened to quit the pastorate if she told the church board.
I assured her that she was in no way out from under her husband’s authority by seeking help for their problem. In fact, she was exercising the authority that he had given to her when they were married.
