Bruce Ware a Southern Baptist scholar argued that one reason that men abuse their wives is because women rebel against their husbands God-given authority:

And husbands on their parts, because theyre sinners, now respond to that threat to their authority either by being abusive, which is of course one of the ways men can respond when their authority is challenged - -or, more commonly, to become passive, acquiescent, and simply not asserting the leadership they ought to as men in their homes and in churches, Ware said from the pulpit of Denton Bible Church in Denton, Texas.
