Andersen shares with us the horrific pattern she discovered in her research--a pattern of war against women--especially in Christian churches. Although disagreements abound between denominations, the attitude toward women is very similar in nearly all of them. Even some women join in the war against women. Although similar to the cold war against the USSR, with propaganda and innuendo being the key tools, it is also a war that has been and is being waged from many pulpits. Scripture has been twisted, mistranslated, and misinterpreted, and the twists, mistranslations, and misinterpretations repeated until a large majority of Christians believe the human changes to scripture ARE scripture, and insist that to deviate from the misinformation they have been taught is to rebel against God.
Both those who fought for the decent treatment of women and the fight itself, now called feminism, have been maligned and misrepresented from pulpits and from Bible college teachers, even by women who themselves are the recipients and users of those rights that other women have suffered and fought to obtain for women all over the world.
Jocelyn Andersen shows what tactics are used to wage the war against women, and the final goal those waging the war are aiming to achieve.
She points out how the war against women has gained ground with certain doctrinal heresies that are used to convince women themselves that God has mandated women are to be vanquished by men.Read more ›
