Bible Passages

I’ve created this page for bible passages that have relevance to Kink and BDSM theology, it’s an on going project with more to be added. It goes without saying that they have been taken out of context and require interpretation which I hope to add at a later date. They are just included here as a starting point for Biblical reflection. All quotes taken from the NRSV version. Do look them up yourselves and read around them and reflect upon them.

 

Hebrews 12:4-8 – 

In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as children—“My child, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, or lose heart when you are punished by him; 6 for the Lord disciplines those whom he loves, and chastises every child whom he accepts.”7 Endure trials for the sake of discipline. God is treating you as children; for what child is there whom a parent does not discipline? If you do not have that discipline in which all children share, then you are illegitimate and not his children.

 

Ephesians 6.5-9 – Which I have written about here

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ; 6 not only while being watched, and in order to please them, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women, knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are slaves or free. 9 And, masters, do the same to them. Stop threatening them, for you know that both of you have the same Master in heaven, and with him there is no partiality
