Defiled - a Christian perspective
What makes a person spiritually "unclean" or "defiled"? Not any physical environment. Rather, it is our own evil words and actions that defile us.


Dinah in the Bible - a Christian perspective
Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, is central to one of the more gruesome displays of trickery in the Bible. She was defiled by a man named Shechem, son of Hamor, who fell in love with her. Schechem demanded her as his wife and Hamor went to talk to Jacob about the proposal. When Jacob's sons heard about what had happened they deceitfully agreed to let Dinah marry Shechem, but only after all of Hamor's men had been circumcised. While they were still recovering from their self-circumcision Jacob's sons went into the city and slaughtered them and took Dinah back.
