Emotional manipulators: The truth must die

I post this story as a preemptive strike against those who will perpetuate the lies of the enemy of our souls. They do it beautifully, with skilled manipulation cloaked in tears. If a wolf cries real tears, then what they are saying must be true, right? After all, God judges the heart, and this wolf’s heart is humble. If that sounds harsh, I don’t mean it to be…

Jen Hatmaker: “Christians should open wide their churches to LGBT community”

Yes, I know, Jen is the lovable mom, writer and speaker who is known for being “Raw and Real.” Apparently she says what women think, or wish they could say, and she tells a lot of great, emotional stories.  But if we judge her fruit (that’s her doctrine, ladies; not her social works) against the truth of Scripture…

On capturing weak women

“I’m seeing a tautological problem today. (And I’m totally gonna speak out against my own gender here.) The vast majority of women today prefer to read not the Bible, but to do “book studies”. The majority of book studies out there are so mixed with truth and lies that it’s like wading through a field with land mines to make it through alive. But without reading and knowing your Bible (which means it should be your primary reading material, not the latest best seller) you are not equipped to navigate the land mines and make it through unscathed.

“Woman, just try harder!”

These days I will not lay my money down for any of the numerous book studies being cranked out for conferences, written by women about their experiences. I want the real deal. So I study Scripture with other women.  But women I love still gather by the dozens to study the latest ramblings by celebrities, one of them being Jen Hatmaker.  Blogger Elizabeth Prata wrote this review of Jen’s book, “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess”:

Oleo on the buffet line is not what your women’s ministries need.

Unfortunately that’s what most mega conferences for women are all about. Cheap thrills from famous ladies I’ll call “celebritistas,” who’ve made a lot of money serving up empty promises of a better life than you’re living now. Chills that go up your spine, a liver shiver or two, and then it’s over. You’re left with the usual conference confetti of expensive books and endless email ads inviting you to the next experience.
