Pastor John Piper: “Women Who Wax Their Private Parts Are Hurting God’s Work”

“Pastor John Piper, founder of the website desiringGod.com and author of more than 50 books, agrees that cosmetic surgery is a sin because as he once put it during an online sermon, “God doesn’t make mistakes.”

““God knit us together in our mother’s womb, he really made our basic structures and there’s some of you [who] are just not going to change – the kinds of hair you’ve got, the kind of nose you’ve got, the kind of hips you’ve got, the kind of height you’ve got and kind of complexion you’ve got. These are things that are just given with our God-given genetics and therefore it really is a matter of trust, isn’t it?” he asked. “God doesn’t make mistakes, so let’s all present our bodies with all the pluses and minuses as a living sacrifice acceptable to God.”

However, “the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary went even further, saying that women who “groom their private parts are no less sinful than those undergoing plastic surgery procedures.”

“What most women don’t understand is the complexity of God’s work when he created man. He made us the way we are for a reason. Like I said, some people are hairy, others aren’t, there are millions of different members of our species on the planet,” Piper stated. “But, grooming private parts, and especially waxing the hair from there completely is equally wrong as getting your nose thinned or augmenting your breasts. It just wasn’t meant to be done.”

The pastor also added: “If God felt it was wise, he would have made women without hairy private parts. But, obviously, that wasn’t the case. We need to stop trying to fix things that aren’t broken. What surprises me even more is that this is one of the few issues on which evolutionary theories and religion concur. God’s work is just God’s work.”

  1. I should note that this is a satire site and it takes quotes compIler and the “extrapolates.” Click the Show Facts button to see what actually said. Nothing about waxing. But the stuff about not supporting plastic surgery because “God doesn’t make mistakes” is genuine. He clearly has not thought that through with regard to birth defects.

  2. Just because a pastor believes in a ‘god’ with such personification doesn’t mean he’s correct in assuming anything other than genetics and coincidence having anything to do with how a human’s aesthetics develop once born OR that any one person other than each individual human has any ‘righteous’ dictation in what others wish to do with their own self-image. What pompous nerve….

  3. He says women don’t understand the complexity of men????? Most women think men are rather simple. In his case, the reason he objects to women waxing themselves is because it makes him aroused. And rather than addressing his own lust, he projects his guilt onto the women.

  4. ““YOU PEOPLE KEEP SAYING GOD .,,,,,,, WHICH ONE?
    Alla,,Mars,Rha,Mercury,Toth,Zanzimeil,Budda,Neptune,Jehova,Crom,Venus,Osirus,Apollo,Posideion,Amund, Can you guys be more specific about which god you are talking about???? My favorite is Poseidon
    Reason why conditioning minor children into and superstitious/religious belief should be a felony. It is child abuse and destroys ability to think critically for life.

  5. the first reply said /everything/ I was going to say. this guy claims that God doesn’t make mistakes, so we should not “improve” on anything. for example, by shaving amusing topiary shapes into our private bushes. and yet, in the picture above, I see that he is wearing glasses (his God-given eyes were not good enough?), has shaved his face (did God not make beards for a reason?), and is wearing clothes (we are born naked, so isn’t that how we are /supposed/ to be?)

  6. Yep, this newslo website is all deceit, and he never said any of it.

    Not a single sermon entitled “God doesn’t make mistakes” like the website claimed.

    Google has no hits except for the newslo website on John Piper having any opinion on the matter.

    This is what he actually says about cosmetic surgery, in which he does not expressly forbid it, neither does he use the same language as the newslo website in reference to it.

  7. Does Jesus Watch Me Go Poopy?

    Dear Pastor,

    My momma tells me I had better behave myself, on account of Jesus is always watching. She says He sees EVERYTHING that I am doing. Does that mean that Jesus is even staring at me every time I pull down my pants to go poopy?

    Yours in Christ,

    – Sue Ellen

    Dear Sue Ellen,

    Yes child, your mother is right; Jesus does see all. But unlike a Peeping Tom who is only able to catch a glimpse of you on the toilet through the window, the good Lord Jesus is all over your business, sniffing out every nook and cranny of your vile, sinful little body. Praise His holy name!

    You see, Jesus knows that toilet time is also a dangerous time for young ladies like yourself – filled with horrid temptations of the flesh. After all, this – along with shower time – is one of the only occasions when True Christians™ have a legitimate reason to be briefly touching their filthy sex parts. This is why Jesus carefully monitors every second spent in the bathroom, to ensure that you make haste, and no fingers go lingering around and get lost in the dirty, stinky parts of your body.

    Jesus Is Watching You!So yes, Jesus is watching you, sweetheart, but don’t worry; there’s nothing in your panties that He hasn’t seen before. Indeed, it was Jesus and His daddy who intelliguntly desined every contour and crevice of your little hoochie and poop chute, which He carefully sculpted in celestial wax before miniaturizing and beaming you inside the incubation chamber you might know better as “mommy.”

    Of course, foolish liberals and depraved sex maniacs maintain that since it was God who created us in His image, this means that every part of our bodies is Godly – including our unmentionables. This is utter nonsense, of course! For just like liquor, drugs, gambling and all the books, music, and movies that are actually entertaining, your disgusting parts were created by God to TEST you, child – which is why you would do well to always express the requisite degree of intense revulsion at the very sight of your own nakedness.

    Remember child, Jesus loves you, which is the reason He’s taking time out of His very busy schedule creating tornadoes and earthquakes and giving folks cancer to watch you squat down and do nature’s business! If you doubt, me – just take our Bible Poop Quiz to see how obsessed the Lord is with excrement.

    So, young lady- the next time you’re making a doo-doo, don’t be shy. Be thankful, child! Verily, take comfort by gazing heavenward as you push and squeal like a sweet naked sow in the mud; then at the very moment you hear an audible plop in the water beneath your soft naked rump, you can give Jesus a little wave hello!

    God Bless You,

    – Pastor

  8. The guy is an idiot, but just in case anyone is taking this seriously — click “show facts” and “hide facts” in the article. The part about the shaving of private parts is not true (this website is a satire site though they don’t make it easy for people to know that).

  9. I see he wears glasses. How dare he correct the vision that God lovingly gave him? Does he think God made a mistake in giving him that sight? Who is HE to correct what God has given him. No no no. This is just as sinful as shaving facial hair that God sent him. If God thought it was a good idea to give men facial hair, then what men don’t understand is that God gave it to them for a reason. Shaving it off or grooming it is just sinful. Why don’t men understand that glasses and face shaving is abusive to God? Can’t he just be happy with what God has given him?

  10. hmmmm, it’s interesting this nut feels that way when it’s obvious he cuts the hair on his head otherwise it would be down his back. i wonder what the difference is whether you cut the hair on your private parts vs the hair on your head. i’m just sayin…

  11. Thats right short hair no feard and glasses , a condemning heart and spewing out the law. A pharisee for sure pitty anyone who follows this man. Genesis created man just like every other living thing with seed within itself to procreate God has nothing to do with your height,weight, colour of skin, or if you are hairy or bald it has to do with your ancestry quit blaming God . How can anyone so ignorant possibly be a pastor.Paul said he was not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of salvation he also said he didnt preach man’s wisdom but Jesus crucified. That has nothing to do with Punic hair that is simply abouy grooming . My winge for the day Pastor Mark Gaudet Agape

  12. From the sites “About Us” page:
    JUST ENOUGH NEWS… Newslo is the first hybrid News/Satire platform on the web. Readers come to us for a unique brand of entertainment and information that is enhanced by features like our fact-button, which allows readers to find what is fact and what is satire.

    Newslo’s “No Need to Satirize” brings you completely factual stories that are so ridiculous, they don’t need our trademark touch. Whenever you see #NNTS, you’re reading COMPLETELY real news that only seems too absurd to be true.

  13. Not that anyone was gonna take this idiot seriously, but his logic is severely flawed. He’s basically saying that cutting or trimming any hair (from the neck down) is a sin because God created us the way He intended. Ok, then that should go for ALL hair.

  14. what about manscaping? i think that would be more a sin that us shaving or waxing. Not just that, but last I checked, I don’t remove hairt off my body for anybody else but my significant other, so you can take your opinion on the matter and sent it back where it came from. You shuld know it well as your head is currently crammed up there.

  15. I just don’t know about the waxing, I spent my entire adolescence trying to just get a glimpse of pubic hair and now it’s all gone. Every time I see a woman with fully shorn bush I can’t help but think of the little Vietnamese girl running after being hit with napalm during the Tet offensive.

  16. God made the world blah blah and does a few magic tricks. So what, if the ass hat wants to make people born with defects on purpose screw him. Get it sorted and enjoy life a little. If he is out there,maybe he’s got more to worry about than fanny hair. That’s definitely a man obsession. Well a priest obsession. He is just a man, who cares what he thinks. no one’s opinion is the voice of God. Now that is something God might be hacked off about.

  17. Piper is not without a point, and it is hard to know what else he said along with the things quoted (context is important), but I am sure that he would say that plastic surgery is appropriate in some cases – followig a disfiguring accident, or a congenital condition that should be repaired. I believe that what he is after in what he says is that, while ordinary care and grooming is appropriate, a heavy focus on appearance to the exclusion of other important things is contrary to what is good and true.

  18. Why is this man’s face clean shaven? He doesn’t look like Grizzly Adams. Why is it his business what people do with parts he can’t even see? Is he sitting around imagining what they look like? Would his problem be improved knowing that none went hairless?

  19. I’m an atheist, but anyone who’d kick a woman out of bed for not shaving is an oversexed borderline pedophile ingrate. save the bush for the REAL men with a REAL sex drive that responds to natural sexuality naturally. I’m coming from a sex positive place here and don’t need help from these Christian fundie ASSHOLE. And remember, women who shave: The assholes you fuck will kick your stinky non childlike looking pussy out of bed, so be afraid of your pubes. BE VERY AFRAID or you might lose your alpha male wannabe with a needle dick

  20. So he gets off talking about this, which he should’nt be doing. Reckon God calls this a good thing? This is no pastor, this is a naughty boy exposing himself for what he is. His church members should watch their children very closely. Or, just find another church that talks real religion. Or is this just a joke, to accumulate entertaining comments? Like a Hoaxie network. (?) Assuming commenters need to get “a life of their own”

  21. He claims that evolutionary theory and religions concur. In that case he would know that evolutionary theory speaks of random genetic mutations occuring. So much for “God doesn’t make mistakes.” Does God mean to create Down syndrome children?

    Also, I agree with posters who point out that this dick shaves and gets haircuts.

    He’s another religious nutbag with an obsession about women’s private parts.

  22. I had breast reduction surgery 20 years ago, for cosmetic and physiological reasons. Does that mean I don’t have a right to look better and feel better? No more neck and back pain! And its NOYB what a woman does in private! Why don’t you focus on something besides a woman’s private parts!!!

  23. When are religious leaders going to realize that what people do with their private parts is none of their business. Haven’t you got better religious teachings for people rather than whether a woman can wax her privates…..perhaps what you are supposed to be teaching….Jesus’ love?

  24. Any body hair that is the result of sexual hormones is, by definition, pubic hair. Facial hair on men, armpit hair on men and women and hair in the area of the genitals is ALL PUBIC HAIR! So, by this moron’s definition, if women shave their crotch it is a sin. Did you notice that he said nothing about MEN shaving their crotch hair. Then, of course, any man who shaves his face (per Sharia law) is violating god’s creation just as is the case of any woman shaving her arm pits. Ya gotta give these fundamentalist IGNORANT MORONS credit for proving that they are ignorant morons.

  25. Isn’t always the women who are the sinful ones??? He’s cutting his beard and hair and trimming his nails!! Do you think God intended us to have short hair? He would’ve made it to wear it doesn’t grow? I’d say he’s just as sinful as the men who put tattoos on their faces!! Maybe he should become Amish! Go back to living in a time where men had total control over women!

  27. It is well-known that one is forbidden to use an umbrella on Shabbat. This is because the use of an umbrella is considered to be a violation of the melacha of “boneh”, the prohibition of erecting any type of tent, structure, or protective covering.[1] In fact, the use of an umbrella might even be a violation of a number of other Shabbat prohibitions, as well.[2] An umbrella may not be used on Shabbat even if it was opened before the start of Shabbat. This is primarily due to the prohibition of ma’arit ayin (“the appearance of a sin”) lest onlookers be led to believe that one had opened the umbrella on Shabbat itself.[3]

  28. So God made him this way, with zero gonadic verve? Why is this jerkoff so preoccupied with women’s private parts, their covering, their functions, their availability, their ownership? I think this guy needs a woman to lay him good enough to make his eyes roll back in his head, then maybe he’d learn to shut up and enjoy women like they were mean to be enjoyed. Sexually mature men and women were put here by God to enjoy each other and maybe to love each other in the bargain. I PITY this guy’s wife; what a stiff, and I don’t mean that in a good way.
