Black and White Bible, Black and Blue Wife: My Story of Finding Hope after Domestic Abuse by Ruth A. TuckerRuth Tucker recounts a harrowing story of abuse at the hands of her husband, a well-educated, charming preacher no less, in hope that her story would help other women caught in a cycle of domestic violence and offer a balanced biblical approach to counter such abuse for pastors and counselors.
Weaving together her shocking story, stories of other women, and powerful stories of husbands who truly have demonstrated Christ’s love to their wives, with reflection on biblical, theological, historical, and contemporary issues surrounding domestic violence, she makes a compelling case for mutuality in marriage and helps women and men become more aware of potential dangers in a doctrine of male headship.
Bible Say About Adultery with Hosea and Gomer?
What does the Bible say about? Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord , but those who act faithfully are his delight. Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous. Better is a poor person who walks in his integrity than one who is crooked in speech and is a fool. Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
Both holy books have specific instructions for a husband that suspects his wife has been unfaithful. Since over half of the world believes in one or the other, I thought it would be good to compare them here. The Bible's instructions are in Numbers 5. The first thing to notice about them is that these instructions are from God. It's not just Moses telling the people what to do; it's God. The LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him, And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband
Or whichever one you find more offensive. Whichever one actually gets you to read this. Biblical Literalism taken to its comical extreme. There are a whole lot of people out there who believe that the Bible was meant to be read more like an accounting ledger than a book of poetry. God told them to kill all the women, children, and babies. God told them to do that. God did.
