Kanye's Christian Response to Kim Kardashian's 'Too Sexy' Dress Is Breath of Fresh Air
Kanye West, Kardashian‚Äôs husband, had issues with how the dress sexualized his wife ‚ÄĒ issues he aired in a discussion featured on Sunday‚Äôs show on E! Entertainment.
‚ÄúI just went through this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‚ÄėOh, my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing her body off,‚Äô‚ÄĚ West said during an on-screen dispute with his wife.
‚ÄúI didn‚Äôt realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that‚Äôs married and the father of now ‚Ä¶ about to be four kids,‚ÄĚ he said.
‚ÄúA corset is a form of underwear. It‚Äôs hot. For who, though?‚ÄĚ West added.
Frank, one had to temper the excellent passage you provided with Paul's subsequent instructions to husbands.
The problem is that, while the husband is the head of his house, it is a rule of service primarily. In this case, West may make a suggestion to his wife but, as an unbeliever, she is unlikely to follow his lead unless he comes alongside with gentleness (Galatians 6:1) and explains what her immodesty is doing to other men.
Watching a brother with an unbelieving wife try to work thru something difficult, and he's not doing well trying to dictate as if he is the power in the home.
Very interesting story. To me the most significant thing that came up was clearly that someone can be the head of his home as long as he doesn‚Äôt exercise headship. And that a woman‚Äôs modest dress is solely up to the woman. I would think that a woman‚Äôs husband would be more likely to see something that is immodest than she would and if he is the head of his home, he should be able to dictate what his wife wears.
Now this is a Hollywood story, but my guess is this sort of thing happens throughout the professing church and the real church. In today‚Äôs world verse 25 means let your wives do what pleases them.
Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
