In Qualms I focus on a contemporary version of Adam and Eve modeled after perpetuated social archetypes. A patriarchal husband devout in the role past down in his encouraging society; and the submissive wife, hesitant in becoming a role encouraged in their society.

from the series 'How To Use The Bible To Get What You Want'

Very existentialist. The slightly ungrammatical text required a few re-reads to understand. An interesting take on the imagery.

Just one word springs to mind...

WHAT..??

The two images are entirely disparate. There is nothing that connects the man (patriarchal, husband, how so?) with the woman (no explanation). There is no real inference of a spiritual light (it would have to be much more directional, hard, and point-source to convey that) and I'm not sure what you are alluding to with the telephone cord.
Why "qualms?" What has he to feel uneasy or nervous about?

The images are quirky, and a few years ago would have sat well in the (imho, pretentious) Kobal Portrait competitions, but for me, it's too disjointed to hang together as a single piece.

It seems a great deal of effort to produce an image that is difficult to understand at all. I'm afraid you need to re-read your text input a bit.
