Several days ago we had Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles trying desperately yet again to promote his own odd sexual proclivity as God’s will. He couches it in language that a woman has to be so incredibly submissive to her husband as her Godly authority that you will do literally anything this side of legal your husband asks. Which, of course, leads right to the dungeon that is Larry Solomon’s dirty little secret desires in his mind.
According to Larry a wife is never allowed to play the “I am not comfortable with that” card. Only if it’s illegal or immoral. No matter if the man goes and does something like blows every penny they own on Pokemon cards, or decides that he’s not going to work just study the Bible. Or does like Larry and basically invents his own version of religion.
It’s all ‘Yes, dear,’ like a Real Doll with a menu of preprogrammed prerecorded responses. No emotions allowed involving gainsaying anything a man might think / say / do.
On a more personal level, what if he asked you to wear certain clothing in the bed room? What if he asked you to wear certain clothing in public (think going on a date or going to the beach)? What if he asked you to change your makeup? What if he asked you to do something uncomfortable in bed?
Do you pull out the “I am not comfortable with that” card as an exception to God’s command to submit to your husband “in everything”? Or have you convinced yourself that you not feeling comfortable with something equals that thing being sinful? If you have done this you need to remember that God has made your husband your spiritual authority and instructor in the his Word. The Scriptures say to wives in 1 Corinthians 14:35 that “if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home”.
Christian Wives, Ephesians 5:24’s command for you to submit to your husband “in every thing” means throwing out your “I am not comfortable with that” card.
Ladies, if you are personally uncomfortable with something in the bedroom there is not a scripture in this world that says you have to do whatever it is. We are called to love, to emotionally support, and many other things in marriage, but being a walking talking sex doll for a man desiring things you don’t want is not submission. It’s abuse. A man that loves you like Christ loves the church would love you enough not to seek to harm you by abuse.
Guys like Larry do not want to work hard to seduce you, to please you so mightily in bed that you willingly run to it because it’s mutually pleasurable. They think only of themselves and their own pleasure. Selfish lovers are rarely good.
Larry tries to manipulate women with the word of God. I guess he’s never read the part of the Bible where it speaks of manipulation being the same as witchcraft.
