Today I viewed a comic strip on another WordPress blog that really gives us a lesson in perspective. Are the ladies in the photo below oppressed? Check out the comic strip on Pink’s blog and let me know your thoughts, click here to view the comic.
Oppression takes place among families in every culture…it just looks different.
I have known many women who cover because of their own desire for modesty and holiness; and I have known those that truly are oppressed.
I am thankful that my relationship with God is not based on rules and rituals, but rather on a relationship with Him.
While I would not put all covered women in the box of oppression at the hands of a male-dominated society, I would consider them to be under spiritual oppression due to feeling bound by rigid, Pharasaical rules in order to please God. What are your thoughts?
