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!
