"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." --
Ephesians for Skeptics
Although Ephesians claims to have been written by Paul to the church in Ephesus (1:1),
most scholars think it was written after his death by one of his followers to no one in particular.1
The writing style, vocabulary, and theological views differ from those of Paul's undisputed letters. But
whoever the author was, the letter itself is pretty boring.
Here are the highlights, such as they are.
We are predestined by God to go to either heaven or hell. None of our thoughts, words, or actions can affect
the final outcome. 1:4-5, 11
God had his son murdered to keep himself from hurting others for things they didn't do. 1:7
Satan is the "prince of the power of the air." 2:2
