Quoting Ravey Candyass:" doesn't the bible also say "thou shall not commit adultery" ? Pretty sure that's the 7th commandment."


Yes it is. What does that have to do with me and my decision to submit to my husband?

So, you'd have no issue with him screwing other people?

Quoting kacti:" The particular one that I'm referring to says for women to submit to their husbands sexually, and for men to do the same for their wives. No double standard there."


It doesn't say "submit to your husband sexually"...it says "Be in subjection to your husband." which is kind of different, and it has standards for the husband as well. "husbands ought to be loving to their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself." Eph 5:21-29



If a man wouldn't do anything he absolutely doesn't want to, why would he make his wife do something if she absolutely didn't want to at that moment in time.

I certainly do not see sex as a 'duty' for either partner, even though sex is an important part of a healthy relationship. I feel like while you should make an effort to enjoy or at least go into sex and make it enjoyable, you should absolutley be able to say no any time. If someone doesn't want to ever have sex when the other does, the partner not wanting sex should be aware the relationship may end or have troubles. I am very sexual, but I would never have married my DH if he was the type to try to make me do anything (not just sex) any time I didn't want to.

They regularly have threesomes, so apparently not.

If you look at my previous comments in other threads you will see that I am aware that some of my actions and choices are not exactly biblical... and that I'm not exactly proud of everything that I do, nor does it jive with what the Bible tells me to do, but nevertheless I am a Christian and I believe the Bible, and I have only ONE GOD that can judge me, and YOU ARE NOT HIM!!!

How can you say you believe the Bible if you are not willing to live those beliefs completely? That doesn't make sense to me. I believe the Bible, too, and I don't go around having threesomes with other people.

So, you pick and choose when to follow the Bible, and use it your needs. Typical hypocrite.

What does that mean then?



When someone believe in the Bible... does it mean that you live by it? Know it's a real book? Or just like the thought of it? Just wondering.
