What Does The Bible Say About A Woman Body

What does the Bible say about women’s bodies? Women are often told their bodies are sinful, unclean, and shameful. But what does the Bible really say about women’s bodies? In this article we will explore biblical passages about women and their bodies.

Ecclesiastes 11:9

Ecclesiastes 11:9 says, “Rejoice, O young man, in your youth and let your heart cheer you in the days of your childhood. Walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous.” This verse is telling you that women are like a body – an important part of life.

1 Corinthians 12:23-27

1 Corinthians 12:23-27

“But the body is not one member, but many. If the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,’ is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,’ is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be smell?”

But now God has set some in his Church: first apostles; secondarily prophets; thirdly teachers; after that miracles…For even as there are different kinds of gifts among men -one having a gift from God to speak in tongue or interpret it…

It is important to take care of your body, just as it is important to take care of your relationship.

Proverbs 31:25

You should treasure your body because it is a beautiful thing. You should also treat your body well, because it is the temple of the Holy Spirit and a gift from God.

Your body can be used to give pleasure and comfort to yourself or others; but it also provides strength, power and energy for you as well as others.

Genesis 2:23-24

The Bible says in Genesis 2:23-24 “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

“Therefore”, God created woman from the rib of man to be a helper for him (Genesis 2:18). It is important to note that God did not create women from dirt or dust as many people believe but rather he took something already existing — Adam’s rib — and made it into something new. This shows us that we are not just what we see on the outside but rather our spirit has been recreated in Christ Jesus for His glory (2 Corinthians 5:17).

With this in mind, it is important to remember that God made your body and gave it to you. You should honor it by keeping yourself in good health and by taking care of any injuries or illnesses that come along with living life on EarthGod created man and woman to be equal in His eyes. The Bible says in Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”.

1 Peter 3:3-4

In 1 Peter 3:3-4, Peter writes that the woman’s body is a temple. This means that the woman herself is a living temple of God and should be treated as such. She should not be used to fulfill her own desires or for another person’s physical pleasure; rather, she can use her body for God’s glory. Her body is not hers to do with as she pleases; rather, it belongs to someone else—her husband (1 Corinthians 6:19). A man should love his wife as Christ loves the church and would never treat his wife like an object (Ephesians 5:25).

This is the body of a woman

This is the body of a woman.

For many, this can be a difficult idea to grasp. A woman’s body has been objectified for millennia and still continues to be used as an advertising tool in Western society today. It is not hard to find images of women’s bodies plastered over billboards, magazines and advertisements. The message behind these images is that men have the right to consume these bodies in whatever way they choose because their value comes from what can be taken from them through sex or other means of objectification.

However, when we look at the biblical perspective on women’s bodies it becomes clear that this thinking has no place in God’s view of women’s personhood or worthiness as people created by him alone with no blemish on them whatsoever (Genesis 1:31). Therefore any attempt at using Biblical passages about modesty must take into account not only what those passages say but also how they apply within modern context if they are going so do so without contradicting our understanding of human sexuality based on its original purpose (see Genesis 2:18-25).

A woman’s body is a powerful thing. It can be used for good or for evil, but ultimately it’s our choice to make. The Bible teaches us that God created women to be beautiful, strong, and intelligent — and this includes their bodies. We are made in the image of God himself, so there should never be shame associated with being female!
