Product Description

The gospel was never intended to restrain women from pursuing God or to prevent them from fulfilling their divine destiny. Woman of God, don't believe the lies...in this powerful book you will learn how cultural bias, male pride and misinterpretation of the Bible have paralyzed women who are called to do the work of Christ. In 10 Lies the Church Tells Women, you will discover:
  • Why Jesus went out of His way to minister to and disciple women
  • Why so many Christian women suffer abusive marriages---and why many pastors don't do anything about the problem
  • How "the Proverbs 31 woman" has been misinterpreted to deny women opportunities in the workplace
  • How the apostle Paul, who told women in Corinth to "be silent," also empowered many women to be church leaders
  • Why we rarely hear sermons about the biblical prophetess Deborah
About the author: J. Lee Grady is the editor of Charisma magazine. An ordained minister and award-winning journalist, he lives in Orlando, Florida, with his wife Deborah, and their four daughters.

    Perhaps this book ought to be called "Ten Lies the Church Tells Women: How the modern Church cherry picks the Scripture"

    I had to take a look inside this book. I had an idea of what it said, but just had to look. I don't find it a mystery that I am the first and only one to write a review, as I would doubt there should be many readers, just based on the title and blurb.

    What I saw in the quick review was disappointing. It showed me all the Scriptures about women that are agreeable to all, but leaves out the ones, which I assume, the author chooses to challenge.

    Of course, the Scripture holds women in high esteem. Ever notice how Moses put the daughters of Jethro in front of the watering line, when the Midianite men put themselves in front?

    Ever read Proverbs 31?

    How about the rights of the slave wife in Deut 21, who has the right to divorce her husband under particular circumstances?

    Why are widows singled out for ministry by God?

    How God truly cares for the least of women!

    The author tends to throw in a few verses such as these, which show what high esteem God holds women -

    BUT, when it comes to the verses that teach the subordination of women to their fathers or husbands, the review is cut off, and instead, there are many statements by men of the Church, which some are true, but scrape against our modern secular sensibilities, taken out of context, and some ARE just plain chauvanistic. But that IS NOT the Scripture!

    Is Jesus not subordinate to His Father? Why is it that the only the Father knows only the day and the hour of Jesus' return? Why did Jesus say He only did, and said, as He saw His Father doing and saying? Why did Jesus submit His will to that of the Father, while struggling with the thought of the cross in the garden? Yet, Jesus is equally God, as is the Spirit.

    Submission is not slavery. Men submit to their boss, their company policies, (even stupid ones), etc., etc.

    Wish the review actually dealt with the verses that teach women need to submit to their husbands or fathers, as in 1Cor 11 or 14.
