160 Women

160 Women

How can a doctor who’s oath is “To Do No Harm,” harm so many women emotionally and physically? I an age where we seek equality and the rights of women to be displayed more clearly, we have to ask why this kind of abuse could take place for so long under the “watchful” eyes of Michigan State officials and the Olympic Gymnastics program. Dr. (I hesitate to use that title) Larry Nassar victimized 160 women who have now seen him sentenced to 70 to 140 years in prison. I harken back to what I wrote yesterday. Our society (if we can call it that) has lost its way spiritually, morally, and ethically. Anger, violence, and abuse are the results of this loss of direction. Certainly this abuse of the women is at the same time violence.

The book of Proverbs often refers to Wisdom as a woman: Proverbs 31:26 says, “She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.” From a Christian perspective we read in Galatians 3:28 says, “There is no longer…male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.” We are one. We are equal. We are created in our own uniqueness by God. If we had a viable society that could live out such ethics it would be healthier and we would seldom read about such stories.

Let’s keep reminding ourselves what scripture shines the light of truth on – God made us equal and complimentary with a variety of gifts. Use the light of truth to guide our ethics and all aspects of our life.

Be Well…
