Husbands, Make Good Love to your Wives
Joel Michael Herbert

I just read your “Modest is Hottest” is not in the Bible article and was blown away. It’s rare to find such clarity from a perspective that runs so counter cultural in the religious ways. I think it offers freedom. It offers truth and it has the potential to a better way.

This article feels a little different to me, beginning with the title. It tells me to do something. Every command, not matter the truth or origin comes with a burden. While I agree (and practice) many of your suggestions, I think the tone could run counter to the actual message.

One of your strongest points, the one that you lead with in your previous article stated “ There’s no universal agreed-upon standard for what turns men on. It’s a self-defeating exercise from the outset.” I think the same is true for women’s sexuality. My guess is that you’d agree but the tone of your article comes across a little objective and imperative sounding. Both things, that I have learned the hard way can be dangerous when trying to communicate the gospel.

Hope the tone of what I am trying to communicate is clear. I don’t disagree with anything you are saying but the package is just as important so I hope this helps inspire thoughts for future writings because I look forward to seeing more of your thoughts on this platform and others. If it helps to talk further, I would be excited about that.
