Insight of the day.
If for me beauty is best exemplifed in the feminine form, to talk about the beauty of God and to image-ine that as woman changes the ethics of relationship.
To objectify a woman, to lust after beauty, even my wife, places her in the position of the true beauty that I wish to see, God.
So for my misogynist friends who can't see God in the femine form and see it as dangerous. I think the femine image of God does deepen and clarify my reading of scriptures and demands more ethical rigor of me.
Lust for me, even lust of a spouse, is sinful if replaces the heart's true desire union with God with another less than God.
