It opens your eyes for rebellious teens, where the root of rebellion came from and how important it is to stay away from rebellion.
It also helps with wives having problems with encouraging their husbands to become the Spiritual head, the wife has to step down and ask for spiritual knowledge from their Husband, making him have to go and find the answers, giving him the authority of delivering the answer to you and raising him up as the position God intended him to be. A fantastic approach for everyone to take responsibility in putting the spiritual order of the household together.
Drs. Ware & Grudem find authority & submission because they wish to justify authority & submission in male-female gender roles. W. Nee does the same in order to justify a hierarchical authority & submission structure in the church; he attempts to ground such hierarchical relationships in the eternal inner-life of the essential Trinity. However the Bible does not do this. Moreover, in order to achieve his goal, Watchman Nee tampers with the Trinity and violates the most basic postulates of orthodox Christian belief—the Nicene and Chalcedon Creeds. If we accept W. Nee’s authority-submission dogma we must reject orthodoxy as defined by the Nicene & Chalcedon Creeds. Conversely, if we affirm those Creedal definitions of the orthodox faith we must reject W. Nee’s dogma. As Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Professor of Biblical & Systematic Theology Thomas H. McCall states “There is no room in orthodox Christian theology for any view [he cites the EFS doctrine] that would diminish the full and equal divinity of the Son and Holy Spirit with the Father.”--Nigel Tomes
