The doctrine of female subordination to male authority lies at the very root of gender abuse against women which is rampant among professing Christians. The premise is despotic and abusive in and of itself. Gender abuse, which includes domestic abuse and the hate crime of domestic violence will never be eradicated among Christians until gender equality for Christian women is acknowledged and practically implemented within our homes and churches.
AUBURNDALE, Fla., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Christian woman whose spirit is being crushed and life endangered by domestic violence often deals with church sanctioned oppression through unscriptural counsel to submit to her husband regardless of the circumstances. She is faced with a unique burden and needs straight answers -- not unrealistic expectations or cliched, stereotypical platitudes. In the book Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence, by Jocelyn Andersen, she will get straight answers, clear scriptural direction, and some tough challenges from one who has been there but is there no longer.
