Dear (Ignorant) Pastor,
Stop misquoting the below verse to your congregation, thereby causing CONFUSION.
1 Peter 3:7
“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, GIVING HONOUR UNTO THE WIFE, as unto the weaker vessel, and as BEING HEIRS TOGETHER of the grace of life; THAT YOUR PRAYERS BE NOT HINDERED.”
“Weaker Vessel” in the scriptures was used by Peter in the context of HONOURING (which means it is used to describe the kind of care one should give to his wife -“AS UNTO…”-)..
..And Peter who used “weaker vessel” also said HEIRS TOGETHER.
Also, he spelt out the consequence of NOT honouring the wife as you’d honour the “weaker vessel” ~ HINDERED PRAYERS.
“..GIVING HONOUR UNTO THE WIFE, AS UNTO the weaker vessel..”
..simply means ‘honor the wife AS you would honor the weaker vessel’
“weaker vessel” here would be something “delicate”. E.g; ceramic or glass bottle _because if you don’t handle such with extra care, you’ll loose it when it breaks_
So, instead of the pastor and everyone quoting that verse out of context in ignorance _causing CONFUSION_, I believe all should just STUDY rightly and get the message Peter was passing across -instead of turning it upside-down to suit themselves-

GOD has graced ALL with understanding (Most just understand WRONGLY)
If you “study” to show yourself approved unto Man, you will fall into error and ignorance and deceit.
STUDY to show yourself approved unto GOD, and you will never be ashamed, RIGHTLY dividing the WORD OF TRUTH.
