Domestic Abuse

Domestic Abuse

I read a disturbing article the other day about the abuse by male religious leaders in Australia of their wives. The article went on to talk about how the Bible phrase “women …. obey your husbands” is at the root of this situation.

The article made me muse on three things. None of which I have time to go deeply into here. But briefly,

These men have misappropriated the true meaning of this Word to women. It has a much deeper Divine significance that should protect women by telling the men their role is to love and protect their wives.

I have just celebrated my 42nd wedding anniversary. And the best blessing from this is how close my wife and I are to each other. When the Scripture is applied properly in your life the blessings are too many to count. My heart cries out for the women who have not been embraced by God’s Love that is embedded in a true Christian marriage.

When Jesus walked the earth he had to deal with religious leaders who instead of declaring Him Lord of Lords focused their energy on having him killed. There are many reasons why this was so but one is because man’s desire for power and position corrupts what God intends for us.

So when you read these articles know that God is allowing these false pretenses and even teachings to be bought down. Some of which have been constructed over centuries. Only then can the true Church be seen.

Our God will not be mocked or ignored. His great love for His church will endure. His message will be heard.
