What Biblical Womanhood Really Means.
In February, a Missouri pastor delivered a sermon to his Baptist congregation. From the pulpit, he body shamed women, objectifying them as adornments to husbands and as sexual conquests. He blamed women for intimacy issues and he blamed God for the male gender’s unchecked appetite for sex. He promoted the submission of woman to her husband’s will, including in the bedroom, while denying her choice over her own body or desires. Some Christians would say that while the pastor went ‘too far’, the root of his sermon was biblical.
