You disagree that what counts is what the BIBLE says?
Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church:

Christ tells the church what to do, the church doe snot tell christ.
The church follows the commandments of christ, christ does not follow the commandmenst of the church.
Christ died for the church the church did not die for christ

same as husband to wife:
What you want to say is that husband is free to voice his opinion, but wife doe snot have to obey: WRONG
A good wife obeys her husband in allthings, just as a good christian obeys christ in all things

What counts is what the BIBLE says
--Frances 9/19/11
Do you follow all Bible commandments then? Should we put to death everyone that works on Sabbath (Ex35:2)? Is it OK to sell one's daughter as a slave (Ex21:7)? How can we confine women that are menstruating for 7 days or ensure we have no contact with them (Lev15:19)? Or for two weeks when a woman bares a female child (Lev12:5)? Do you still give burnt and sin offerings to your priest? How can we stone people for cursing God, as God commands, and not be sentenced to death ourselves (Lev24:14) Have you ever stoned anyone for it?

--Trav on 9/19/11
In all your rambling on this post, you never answered the basic question asked by the OP, Is it a sin for a women to go to a male gynecologist as the husband thinks? And Frances has never answered this question either. Perhaps you would also like to respond to the same questions I asked Frances about keeping certain specific OT commandments.

Are Male GYN Biblical
My husband think its a sin for me to go to a male gynecologist. For him it is an invasion on our privacy and in disrespect towards the husband. I myself have a female Doc? Is my husband right?----Blog Question

He says no...she says go.
Husband cares enough about his wife not to expose her private intimate parts.

The wife obviously doesn't care to show her private intimate sexual parts.

Francis pointed out some reasons scripturally...that may chafe effem hindoo hibrid?
Hebrews 10:16
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them,

Some have em...some don't.
---Trav on 9/19/11


Francis, the questions are obviously relevant.
---Rocky on 9/17/11
No they are not as my opionion does not count. What counts is what the BIBLE says

And the bible says that the man is head over the wife, and the headship extended even as far as to dissallow a vow made to God by the wife, so how much more a vow made to a GYN to be in his office and expose herself?
---Francis on 9/19/11




Doctors have seen many naked bodies, all different shapes and sizes, so they are hired not to invade any privacy but to diagnose and heal the bodies ailments through their learned knowledge and skill. The well need not a physician, but they that are sick.
---Eloy on 9/19/11


Francis, the questions are obviously relevant. You were quoting various OT commandments to support your position. I was questioning if you support and follow other OT commandments to learn if you support all of them of if you pick and choose which ones. If you pick and choose, then I will ask the basis for selecting which ones. So please answer the questions about the other OT commandments asked earlier. You again repeat for the umpteenth time your argument that a husband's authority to disavow a wifes vows to God (another OT commandment) proves his right stop his wife from seeing a male gynecologist without ever addressing my comments about why it is not relevant. You also have not answered other questions.
---Rocky on 9/17/11


The man has the right as the wife has the authority to refuse her husband to visit a female doctor.
---andy3996 on 9/17/11


Francis, just drop it. No one on here is going to agree with you. This husband obviously has some mental illness that causes him to be paranoid and controlling. And you evidently have a mental disorder also if you think this is okay.
---Jed on 9/17/11


Are you married? How would you follow this practice if you thought your wife defiled? Are churches clamoring for the right to enforce it? Have you asked your pastor to enforce it in your church?
---Rocky on 9/15/11

I did not answer these questions because I do not see how any of these contribute to the husband being head of the wife, and having authority to nulify a wife's desire even towards God, and thus towards a GYN who is a mare man.

If the husband being head of the wife enables him to without question nulify his wife's vow to God, how much more an appointment to expose herself to another man, even if he is a GYN?

And you are 100% correct, the hosband does have the final say
---Francis on 9/17/11




--Francis 9/6: "Explain the difference"
Francis, I will respond to your request of after you answer the many questions that I already asked of you which you chose to ignore. Just look at the many posts below.
---Rocky on 9/16/11


note the commandment is about her obedience, not his "right" to command - a subtle but important difference).
---Rocky on 9/16/11
explain the difference
---Francis on 9/16/11


Frances, you are distorting things again. I never said God did not give a husband the right to command his wife not to see a male gynecologist. In fact I wrote "Nothwithstanding the preceding, the husband has final authority." Do you really not understand what is written? That would explain a lot. You ask "Is Gyn greater than God?" What a stupid question. Why do you even ask? How is it even relevant? The fact that you choose to keep emphasizing "expose her private parts to another man" instead of just saying gynecologist might indicate you have some real han-ups. Remember the posters question is "Is it a sin to see a male gynecologist?"
---Rocky on 9/15/11


Francis, What am I wrong about? I have made about 10 posts on this page. I challenge you to find one place where I stated the wife did not have to obey her husband (note the commandment is about her obedience, not his "right" to command - a subtle but important difference).
---Rocky on 9/16/11


---Rocky on 9/15/11
You are wrong. How could you think that God gives to the husband the right to nullify his wife's vow to God, but not to decide that his wife cannot expose her private parts to another man? Is a GYN greater than God?
A husband can cancel a vow made by his wife to GOD THE ALMIGHTY but not an appintment by his wife to expose herself to another man?
---Francis on 9/15/11


Francis, why bother to keep repeating essentially the same bogus posts? Why never answer any questions posed about it? Why never talk about a man's responsiblity to love his wife like himself, which goes in tandem with his right to rule?

You miss the point. The husband has a RIGHT to be jealous, just as God is a jealous God, So too must a husband be a jealous husband.

No, I did not miss the point, I clearly stated "This is not a right to be jealous or to act on any jealousy." Please dont lie. And you dare say that man has the same rights as God? That is laughable, and sad.

You miss the point. The husband has a RIGHT to be jealous, just as God is a jealous God, So too must a husband be a jealous husband.
---Francis on 9/15/11


Numbers 30 gives the husband the right to nulify any vow made by the wife to God. That is a great authority.
Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

1 Peter 3:5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:

1 Peter 3:6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

Thus it is a light thing that a husband tells his wife that he does not want her to be exposed naked before another man even a GYN
---Francis on 9/15/11


Francis, No, you do not understand. On Num5: God gave the husband a method for acting, under the law, on his fear and claim that a wife had been unfaithful, defiled in violation of the law. This is not a right to be jealous or to act on any jealousy. Since you hold this out, should it be followed today? It combines issues of sacred and secular law, should the church or state do it? Should the same punishment apply? Should it apply to all people or only some? Are you married? How would you follow this practice if you thought your wife defiled? Are churches clamoring for the right to enforce it? Have you asked your pastor to enforce it in your church?

If the anthropologists are right, all citizens of the USA are African-Americans.

Look deeper
Numbers 30: The Husband has the right to nullyfy a wive's vow to God. Now if GOD gives the husband the authority to nullify a vow made by the wife to God, how much more so does he have the authority to tell his wife not to expose her privates to another man EVEN A GYN

Numbers 5, you do understand that the woman may not be defiled, but God gives the husband right to act on his jealousy
---Francis on 9/15/11


This is a complicated issue with many parts. Let me try to summarize my thougths. The husband thinks seeing a male gynecologist is a sin and disrespects him. It is not and does not, and he should review his thinking on this, perhaps with his pastor. Is it an invasion of their privacy? This is a civil and not a religious issue, but the only privacy invaded is hers, not his, so she should decide what she wants on this point. The husband is commanded to love his wife as he loves himself and his own body. If she wants to see a male gynecologist, he should relent, especially if his objection is based on false doctrine. Nothwithstanding the preceding, the husband has final authority.
---Rocky on 9/15/11


hilarious, a black chinese. there's a story like that from Belgium, i believe Rubens the painter was the first ever to make a genuine study about black people on canvas, this small study painting is originally called Studies of the head of a negro,but then some germans complained that the term was dimnutive so they call it mornkoph for germans( head of a moor)
but when americans came they found it moor and Negro so humiliating that the museum named it for his US audience "Studies of the head of a black man"
an african friend who knows all three languages visited the museum and ge laughed his head of, saying they should decide how to call it.

Francis, No, Num5 is about a woman being "defiled" not about having private parts exposed. Nor does it approve of a husband being jealous but proscribes how priests resolve charges against a wife. It specifically applies whether the husband be jealous, not jealous, or when "he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled". Further, at the time, Priests were both the secular and spiritual law. The required actions would, if she was defiled, cause "her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot". Thigh is probably a euphemism for womb as it implies she will not be able to conceive. This is your support? It provides absolutely no support for you statements nor does it address the issues being discussed.
---Rocky on 9/15/11


Francis, Num30 I already addressed, a very specific right given the husband cannot be generalized into other rights, further it does not say she commits a sin if she does not obey. And I have never objected to him "asking his wife", again you equivocate. The question is, is it a sin if she does not obey him or follow his ORDERS. And again you did not answer all the other questions about his responsibilities. I suggest you do a little more reading in the NT about how ones emotions, like jealousy, are wrong. The Sermon on the Mount would be good start, particularly Mat5:22-28. The goal is to find peace and love in God through his son, Jesus, not rationalize approval of jealousy.
---Rocky on 9/15/11


Joseph, I laughed at your answer to Gordon. It was funny but true for many guys.
Concerning the blog, there is an understanding in Christian churches that woman should council woman, reason is to prevent sin from entering. Sometimes it goes to far. But lets not crucify the husband and assume he is jealous. He might be, but then again he might not. He might be thinking the same way, preventing sin to enter. It does not mean it will for we do not know when the enemy will tempt. A wife should submit to her husband, but he must submit to God. I believe Cluny is right, indulge the husband. Nothing wrong with that this way there is no strive between the two. But as I can see there is already one since the person posted the question.
---Mark_V. on 9/15/11


Andy ... I don't see what else you could have called the doctor. ... unless "non-white"

The PC of non-racialism seems to have gone overboard.

Here, we used to call afro carribeans "black" and Indians "indian" and pakistanis "pakistanis" and chinese "chinese"

Then we had to change all that, and use the all embracing tewrm "coloured".

Then they got annoyed at that, so we had to call ALL non-whites "black", even if they were chinese, japanese, or indian.

Daft, isn't it?

Andy, I believe KarenD's answer came from her perspective, where she lives. I remember I had a real good friend who grew up with me from Texas, he was black. He asked me what they called colored people in California and I said black. He asked me if blacks felt hurt? I said, I didn't think so, and he was from Texas, never been outside of Texas. I believe it depends where you live. He though colored was a better word. Blacks here don't like to be called colored. Mexicans, don't like to latino's but hispanic. It just depends where you live. Whites are lucky, they are called white everywhere.
---Mark_V. on 9/15/11


karenD again i would ask you same question how was i provocative in using coloured in my example? since the skintone was an essential part in this particular story, and i didn't know the doctor in person, so i could not say his origins.. again and sincerely how is the proper acceptable term in the US not to offend in this particular case.
as i allready pointed out that both in Europe (mainland) and Africa (west) to designate someone with his special traits isnot concidered anything at all.
---andy3996 on 9/15/11


---Rocky on 9/14/11
Numbers 5 justifies the action of a jealous husband. So BIBLICALLY a husband does have the right to be jealous: meaning having what is his to be his alone. ( this husband does not want his wife "provate parts" exposed to other men
Numbers 30 talk about the headship of the husband over the wife, where he is able to disallow a vow made by his wife to God. So if a husband can dissallow a vow made by his wife to God, surely he can ask his wife to cancel an appointment to have another man exame her private parts
---Francis on 9/15/11


Francis - I do not see how Numbers 5 is relevant to the discussion at all. I have given you many chances to explain your comments. You repeatedly ignore relevant questions because you have no valid answers to support your erroneous comments. Instead you cite more irrlevant scripture to hide the errors in what your previously wrote.

Francis: Yes, you addressed the sin issue that a woman must obey her husband. But you have not addressed the issue if the husband is right in thinking it a sin to see a male gynecologist. And you have not provided a reasonable response to many other questions I raised about your statements, For instance, please cite a source for - A husband has EVERY BIBLICAL right to be jealous over his wife. What about the sin of the husband in not loving his wife enough to honor her choice? Why have you not addressed his responsibility to address his own hang-ups? Or issues raised about your interpretation and generalization about Numbers 30? Why did you change terminology from command to make reasonable requests?
---Rcoky on 9/14/11


---Rocky on 9/13/
I already addressed the sin issue
---Francis on 9/14/11


One part of the original post I have not seen specifically addressed is the husband telling the wife it is a sin to see a male gynecologist. I know of no scripture supporting this. And if he is instructing you to not do something because it is a sin when it may not be, I suggest the two of you talk with your pastor about that particular issue. I also see no reason to consider it any disrespect to your husband or any basis for such thinking. I can understand the women considering it a privacy issue, but not the husband.

Francis, you are equivocating again. Before you said the wife must obey, now you call it a reasonable request. Why the euphemism now? Yes, a woman should consider his request. It is likewise reasonable for him to follow her request. But that does not answer the question, is it a sin if she chooses to ignore his request? Numbers 30 gives the husband a specific right. Are you are saying it is your interpretation that Numbers 30 means she must agree to his wishes or it is a sin? You still have not addressed his obligation to lovingly listen to his wife and honor her wishers or his own responsibility to address his own hang-ups rather than forcing them on her.
---Rocky on 9/13/11


---Rocky on 9/13/11
Numbers 30 show the headship of the husband over the wofe. If a husband can nunify a wife's vow to God, then surely he can make a reasonable request that his wife recieve quality GYN care from a female.

It is not controling, it is a reasonabel request.
A loving wife would be very pleased that her husband is cocerned about "an invasion on our privacy. "
---Francis on 9/13/11


KarenD, how should i call coloured people not to offend? i live in Africa and everyone calls me white man, and i call them black man, never any of us is offended. unless we know eachother then we call eachother by name.
---andy3996 on 9/13/11


Francis: One, you are wrong to say the only way a husband can be not loving is to deny her gynecological care. Not honoring her choice of who to see because of his own jealousy is being not loving. Two, you keep repeating statements no one disagrees with, as if they are proof which they are not. Three, please cite your source for stating that a husband has a Biblical right to be jealous over his wife about anything. If he has hang-ups and is wrongly jealous, the problem is his and he needs to address his problem, not let it control his judgment and ruling over his wife. That is not being loving.

This husband is NOT loving his wife as Christ loved the church.
---NurseRobert on 9/12/11
The only way you can say that the husband is not loving his wife is if he denied her GYN care
1: He is not denying her GYN care
2: Female GYNs are just as good as Male GYN so she is not being denied quality of care
3: GYN is usually a scheduled appointment so this is not an emergency
4: A husband has EVERY BIBLICAL right to be jealous over his wife, and not wanting her to be exposed to another man: even a GYN

see Numbers 5
---Francis on 9/13/11


Francis: No, I am not wrong and you have not said anything to show otherwise. I never said or based my words on an assumption that he was denying her gynecological care or that female gynecologists cannot provide just as good of services. And Numbers 30 is not relevant to the discussion, it is about vows unto God and fathers right to disavow vows unto God made by a daughter and the husbands right to disallow vows made by the wife. It has nothing to do with a husband controlling his wife in other matters or loving his wife and honoring her choices. Why do you never respond to this latter part about the husbands obligation to the wife? Why ignore this commandment?
---Rocky on 9/13/11


Are you looking for a reason to not honor your husbands request through scripture? I think it is a blessing to be able to fulfill my wifes requests, I want to serve her and cover her insecurities like Christ covers mine. In the past she said she would feel more comfortable with a male Dr giving me a physical and I didnt even give it a second thought. My body is hers and hers mine. If it was him asking I would give him the same answer. Let your love reflect Christ in this and Jesus will honor your sacrifice. .

You are wrong

1: he is NOT dening her GYN care
2: Female GYN can provide just as good services as do men maybe even better SO quality of care is not being denied

Numbers 30:6 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard [it], then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her.
---francis on 9/13/11


Francis: No I am not looking for the word on obedience, I am well aware of it as I have acknowledged. But you seem impervious to the command to the husband to be loving towards his wife. There is nothing sinful or wrong in a woman seeing a male doctor. If she, being aware of her husbands preference, still wants to see a male doctor, he should not object, and not let his irrational feelings stand in the way. It would be better if he learned to better deal with his own emotions and grow in the process. And I have no idea why you feel the need to capitalize THE GYN IS MALE as we are all aware of that.

Your husband does not want you exposing yourself to other men, even GYN. That should be respected and honoured.

It is not hard to find a female GYN.

when you disobey a REASONABLE REQUEST like this from your husband then it becomes a sin, because you are disobeying the ORDER of GOD.

Gordon - Why is a female gynecologist "ideal" or "most appropriate"? When a doctor is treating a patient gender should absolutely make no difference. Now should a woman, for whatever reason, prefer a female doctor then that is fine too and I support her in her choice.
---Rocky on 9/10/11


Joseph, Did you not read my entire comment? Ideally, it is best for a woman to be a Gyn. And, that is exactly what I said. But, as I just explained in my previous comment, there ARE decent male Gyns out there who are doing a trustworthy medical work for women who DO NOT take sexual advantage of women. Are you going to deny that????!!! If there were no trustworthy male Gyns out there, there would be none at all by now for they would all have been taken to court. Or found out by now. There are male Gyns who truly care about women and about helping them. If not, the women who are under their care would not continue seeing them. RIGHT? If they were untrustworthy, they'd be out of business by now. RIGHT?
---Gordon on 9/10/11


Jed, (lol) Thanks. Your comment helps prove my point. There ARE trustworthy male Gyns out there. I think that IDEALLY it's best to opt for a good female Gyn, but, if a male is all that's available at whatever given circumstance, then, it should be gone for. Maybe Obama can come up with some bill to ban all male Gyns from practicing once his "Health-Care" kicks in. (jk):-/

First ask your husband to explain why he thinks it disrespects him - be gentle but ask him to explain in detail and if you don't understand his explanation ask about it. Then ask him why it is a sin and again, gently ask him where in the Bible it says something like that is a sin. Then go talk with your Pastor about your husbands beleifs - they might point towards a broader issue of misunderstanding or misinterpreting scripture. Then, depending on what your pastor says, you might ask your husband to review his ides with the pastor, or better yet for the two of you to go together.

I personally can say that whatever one is doing, the issue lies within the conditions of the heart.motives are weighted for every action.

---mj on 9/9/11


No, it is not a sin. Your husband evidently has a mental problem. He probably also imagines that every man in the grocery store is looking at you as well. One of my closest friends is a retired male gyno and he can tell you that he does not get excited by examining countless women's privates all day. Just imagine some of the people that he has to see. With the exception of getting to deliver babies, that would have to be one of the grossest jobs ever. I'm sure that treating thousands of women have taken alot of the fun out of seeing female private parts.

What is your husband? A mahometan or something?

It is not a sin. Would it be a sin for him to go to a female urologist or homocologist?

However, the Bible DOES say that we who are strong must bear with the infirmities of the weak. so go ahead and humor your husband.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

When I was young there were no women doctors in that field. I had a lot of health problems that required a GYN doctor,in fact I had five surgeries by GYN doctors. None of it had anything to do with my husband it was about my health. Your husbands twisted view point doesn't matter when it comes to a womans health. Your husband is wrong. Its no sin and its fine to go to a male GYN. People get some crazy ideas they attribute to religion when it is simply their own prejudice against something.

Is my husband right?

YES
because he feels that " it is an invasion on our privacy and in disrespect towards the husband." For that reason alone you MUST switch

"I think in a perfect world that, regarding being a specialist doctor (as pertaining to private body parts), I think a SAME-GENDER doctor would be most appropriate." Gordon that may be most appropriate to many. However, If I had a problem that would make it necessary to have anyone messing around my "private parts" I would much rather that person be female, and would make that request. Having a man anywhere near them would make me very uncomfortable.

Well, I would think that what is in our minds is much more intimate and private, than what is on our outward body. So, he could take issue, then, with you going to a man to pastor you. That would be much more deeply intimate than someone examining a physical part of the body.

But I can see it could be better to be with a woman. God could have had things work out to be this way, knowing your husband is the way he is. I would pray and do things in agreement with each other, in peace. It is good to have people who have had your experience so they can feel for you. A male doctor, then, "might" not have your experience (c:

No, your husband is not right, he's a jealous idiot..

Does he honestly think a doctor cares what your "private parts" look like? You need to go where YOU are comfortable going.

Tell your husband to grow up.

I think in a perfect world that, regarding being a specialist doctor (as pertaining to private body parts), I think a SAME-GENDER doctor would be most appropriate. A doctor of every other body part could be "co-ed", no problem. But, having said that, (and this is not a perfect world), I do believe that there are very good and decent male Gyns out there who do their jobs and do not look at it in an "erotic" way. They studied in Med School for this. They've seen thousands of illustrations and perhaps photos. They have a desire to truly help women. And, that, they set out to do. It'd be the minority of them they get off track and fall into "mischief and naughtiness" who wreck the good name of the rest of the male Gyns.

whether he's right or not is debatable, yet if there's a good female GYN why not humor your husband if that makes him feel better.
