Have you fallen for these LIES???


There are ten very common lies that the church tells women.

 Lie #1  God's ultimate plan for women is that they serve their husbands.

  Lie #2  Women can't be fulfilled or spiritually effective without a husband.

  Lie #3  Women shouldn't work outside the home.


  Lie #4  Women must obediently submit to their husbands in all situations.

 Lie #5  A man needs to "cover" a woman in her ministry activities.

  Lie #6  A woman should view her husband as the "priest of the home."

  Lie #7   Women are not equipped to assume leadership roles.
 
Lie #8  Women must not teach or preach to men in a church setting.

  Lie #9  Women are more easily deceived than men.

 Lie #10  Women who exhibit strong leadership qualities have a "spirit of Jezebel."

Have you believed any of these lies?  Sadly many people have been and these false teachings continue to be propagated not only from the church pulpits of America but at many retreats, conferences, para-church events and popular books that make the rounds in Christendom. 

Click here for an excellent article by one of my favorite authors, J. Lee Grady who exposes all these lies for what they are and proclaims God's truth!  If you would like more information on this I highly recommend his book of the same title, Ten Lies the Church Tells Women:  How the Bible has been Misused to keep Women in Spiritual Bondage."   I used this book for a study with our church women a few years ago, and it was an excellent resource that we will be using again and again.  Not only were the women very affirmed but those who were married shared the book with their husbands and they too were very helped by the information.  I highly recommend it!

 *p.s. to Northside church members reading this ~ if you have interest in this book, I always have extra copies of this particular book on hand for our members.  See me Wednesday or Sunday for your copy of this valuable resource!

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
