The bible tells to submit to God (Job 22:21, Proverbs 3:6, James 4:1+7)

The church to submit to Christ (Ephesians 5:24)

For wives to submit to their husbands (Ephesians 5:22 +24, Colossians 3:18, 1 Peter 3:1+5)

To submit to those in authority, to those who are our leaders (Hebrews 13:17, 1 Peter 2:13

Slaves to submit to their masters (1 Peter 2:18)

Those who are younger to submit to their elders (1 Peter 5:5)

So if we submit passively to someone elses will, someone who don’t have any of these positions of authority over us, instead of making us responsible and independent, do we place ourselves in a place off captivity, held captive by one who has no authority, but bullies us into a position that leads to them wrongfully gaining authority??? Just a thought.
