This is not the conduct of a true man of God beating women. A true man of God knows how to handle a woman without beating and abusing her. The problem today is that we, as men, have lost the knowledge of how to handle ourselves, so it becomes exceedingly difficult for us to handle our mate. Yet nature forces us to come together, but we don't know what to do with each other after we come together. We make each other's lives miserable and so wife-beating is on the increase. I don't even want to say "wife-beating," because men aren't marrying women that much today. Marriage is a dying institution.
What is the cause of this? We want to get to the root cause of why domestic violence is on the rise. Not only is this happening in the Black community, it is happening on an increasing scale in the white community and in the community of so-called civilized peoples of the earth. Female abuse and child abuse are not only violent in terms of physical punishment, but sexual assault in the home is on the increase. Men are sneaking up on their own biological daughters and having sex with them. Fathers are abusing their stepdaughters or beating and brutalizing their stepchildren who are male.
Dr. Morris Jeff, author of "A Crisis in Black Sexual Politics," writes, "It is now evident that murders are not committed for the most part by strangers. To the contrary, a person is more likely to be a victim of murder at the hands of a friend, a relative, an acquaintance or a lover." From: Final Call
