A Cambodian proverb says that men are like gold, and women are like white cloth. This not only implies a gender superiority present in their culture, but also eludes to the idea that men can be wiped clean of their past, while women become permanently soiled as they make mistakes in their lives.
Romans 8:1-3 says “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
