by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – The Eliminated Word
Editor’s note: Nancy Campbell’s obsesses over penis? These are words I never thought I’d have to post ever here. I’m really confused and I’m guessing you are too. This seems a weird stretch even for Nancy Campbell. Putting on the Biblical full armor of God does not mention ‘loins’, she is right about that. But… is it really that important, or is this just stupid misinterpretations of Nancy again? I thought it was all about protecting the uterus with her.
The Greek word for loins in this Scripture is “osphus” meaning “the hips, the strength of a man, procreative power, the seat of generative power.” The Bible talks about future progeny coming forth from the loins (c.f. Acts 2:30 and Hebrews 7:5, 9, 10). It was most important that soldiers protected their loins (their procreative power) as they went out to war….
However, I am confused. Most modern translations do not even mention the word loins.
Men wore long robes in those days. When they did physical work, or readied themselves for action they “girded up their loins.” They picked up their robes to the knees or just above the knees and tucked them in their belt. Therefore, they could be using this metaphor.
But they eliminate the most important word, “loins.” No soldier would go to war without protecting his loins. A belt is not enough. In fact, it is a shame to have the loins uncovered. When prisoners were taken captive, they often shamed them by shaving their heads and uncovering their loins!
The loins are to be fully girded about. That means they must be protected from abortion, all the modern methods of contraception that eliminate life, and the knife that cuts off procreative power.
Not only have the loins been made lifeless, but they have become prey to sin—fornication and adultery among young people and even married couples. It’s time for a revival of strengthening the loins, bringing God’s truth and holiness back to this area of our bodies.
