GA.COM is featuring a new article called A Message to Wives by none other than "unique persepective" Betty Geftakys.  Actually, the article is notes from that talk at the Worker's Seminar.

What I saw was classic Betty.  I have been at couple's meetings where she argued that if we are indeed dead in Christ, then we are in our casket.  If we are dead, someone should be able to come along and twitch us on the nose and we wouldn't react because we are dead.  Thus, we should lay down our rights and take our place in our casket when we encounter annoying roomates or unreasonable demands of leaders.

The Bible does indeed teach that we are dead with Christ so at the time, Betty's inferrance sounded logical.  But, where do you think she went wrong?  Is she confounding a positional truth with a practical one?

I heard that Betty's casket locked from the inside. Is this true?

Thanks Dave for posting this reference on GA.com. I was never a part of worker's meeting's or couples meetings but if we are dead in Christ I dont think the scriptures intend  for us to be in a casket. When I see this it makes me think that if we were in a casket how could someone come along and twitch us on the nose( a casket is something that isolate us from others). Where did she go wrong perhaps it was not referring to being alive in Him. I have parts of some verses that come to mind but i'm too tired right now. I will add them later.

It was one of those old refrigerators with a mechanical latch.  Too bad.  She could've used a more modern one, with a magnetic lip seal.
