» Titus 2:11-14
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

Speaking the Truth in Love

The subtitle, "A True Acount of Event & Concerns Related to the Local Churches 1987-1989" alerts the astute reader about an alternative, "official" account of these same events. John Ingalls carefully documents the lengths to which he, and other "concerned brothers", went seeking to rectify the situation. However, John and others were "side-swiped" by an abrupt change in tactics which saw them as "conspirators" and "rebellious ones", accused of being in league with the Devil, and "speaking perverted things". A litany of accusation appeared in the book "Fermentation of the Present Rebellion" published by the Living Stream Ministry (1990) under Witness Lee's name and freely distributed through LSM's distribution network. Meanwhile Maoist-style denunciation meetings attacked John Ingalls & Co during LSM's regular training - sessions expounding the Scripture - a combination which ought to be an oxymoron for any "Christian ministry".

The sexism is, I think, tied up somewhat in the thought-stopping clichés in the Local Church. Thought-stopping clichés are sayings that shut down rational thought, and prevent the ability of members to speak up. If you've got prevalent teachings like "get out of your mind" or "you are on the wrong tree" or "we are not in the realm of right and wrong", then almost any horrific thing can be said and the members are already fully ingrained to immediately doubt their own concerns and condemn their own reactions!

A well-rounded approach to Bible study recognizes that the Bible is always more concerned with the decision-maker than with the decision itself. Its aim is to change our hearts so that we desire what God desires, rather than to spoon-feed us answers to every decision in life.

Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible
with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds

"Many Christian women find great encouragement and joy in and through women's Bible studies. However Jen Wilkin is concerned that sometimes we let our emotions rule our study of Scripture and forget that the Bible is primarily about God, not us. This book will help you refocus your efforts on feeding your mind first and foremost. This accessible volume will energize and equip you for Bible study aimed at transforming both the heart and mind."
