In modern Christian theology, the wife’s vagina is God’s messenger. If a woman isn’t sexually attracted to her husband it is a sign of God’s displeasure in her husband.
Sheila Gregoire has adopted the same modern Christian teaching, and brings in Gary Thomas* to urge wives to listen to the voice of God that resides between their legs. The title of the post is Wifey Wednesday: When Your Marriage is in Trouble, Do Something! It closes with:
Initial romantic intensity is unearned; it seems to fall on us out of nowhere. But a solid, lasting marriage has to be built (and sometimes rebuilt) stone by stone. You married a fallen man and that means the time will come when you need to become an active woman to confront the weaknesses you see in yourself and your husband.
As daunting as this might seem, here’s the hope behind it: the current challenges in your marriage may well be God’s vehicle for you to become the strong woman he created you to be. Maybe you grew up with an overly passive view of being a woman. Maybe you’ve always let people run over you and allowed things to happen rather than to rise up and unleash the power that is yours as a woman not only created in the image of God, but filled with His Holy Spirit.
This challenge, as scary and painful as it might be, could be the doorway to new growth, new maturity and a new woman who more closely resembles the character of Jesus Christ.

While teaching wives to make an idol of their own vaginas, the post warns women that following the instruction of 1 Pet 3:1-6 would be a sin, as it would make an idol of marriage and their husbands.
God made you, as a woman, to rule in this world, to subdue it, to act according to his image.
