Church in Adultery

“My point was simply – the church (which is described in women’s terms) is married to 3 suitors – Jesus, gov’t, and business (economy). Thus the reason the church doesn’t represent what we read – have to satisfy more than one suitor will do that.

Ironic thing, the church represent’s the agenda of men, even though it is always described metaphorically as a woman. I find that odd.”

Lifted my comment from Chris Ledgerwood’s blog ‘Christianity Isn’t About That Is It?’

  1. Many things, “the church,” boats, cars, etc. are given female pronouns. I think this has less to do with believing that somehow women are represented in the organization or object, and more to do with the traditional male belief that things that are female are owned by men.
