Bound Tightly By the Good Book & God's Will

This fashion editorial from Zink Magazine, via Fashion Gone Rogue, is appropriate for our ongoing learning about women and religion worldwide, and also the Founding Fathers of America and their views about religion. 

The latter is my new area of study and I posted about Thomas Jefferson last evening.

I’ve made every effort to use Biblical verses from the King James Bible, because it’s the one mandated by the Southern Baptists.  Just this morning Timothy Egan wrote in an Opinionator from the NYTimes that the Idaho missionaries have damaged legitimate adoption organizations in Haiti and elsewhere.

Readers have complimented me personally on my attempts to fairly and accurately present the facts of the Haiti case, with Laura Silsby and Clarisa Coulter remaining in jail. My commitment to fair reporting and commentary has not ended.

I confess to being a bit ‘rattled’ this morning, when I read that Idaho pastor Paul Thompson, who followed Silsby to Haiti, wrote just before the earthquake:

“War is declared! In God’s Holy Name let us arise and build!”

Researching the term, I came to this blog post Men of God, Arise!

“Too long have we been waiting for one another to begin! The time of waiting is past! The hour of God has struck! War is declared! In God’s Holy Name let us arise and build! ‘The God of Heaven, He will fight for us’, as we for Him. We will not build on the sand, but on the bedrock of the sayings of Christ, and the gates and minions of hell shall not prevail against us.

“Should such men as we fear? Before the world, aye, before the sleepy, lukewarm, faithless, namby-pamby Christian world, we will dare to trust our God, we will venture our all for Him, we will live and we will die for Him, and we will do it with His joy unspeakable singing aloud in our hearts. We will a thousand times sooner die trusting only our God, than live trusting in man.

“And when we come to this position the battle is already won, and the end of the glorious campaign in sight. We will have the real Holiness of God, not the sickly stuff of talk and dainty words and pretty thoughts; we will have a Masculine Holiness, one of daring faith and works for Jesus Christ”. Listen to the words of C.T. Studd (1860-1931) in a reading from “The Chocolate Soldier” on YouTube.

Within this context and nine months worth of writing about women in developing countries and religion, and also American women’s place in different religious orders, I believe it’s fair to share my own thoughts from the Bible, when I see these photos from Zink magazine.

I admit to being increasingly ‘shaken up’ the more I read on this topic.

The provocative fashion editorial was shot by Herring & Herring, styed by Mykel C. Smith. Models in ‘Bound’ include: Damaris Lewis, Julia Goncharenko, Anais Pouliot and Clara Settje.
