"So what is the Lord saying to Martha? Most likely He's saying, "Martha, you and Mary are both welcome to sit and talk with Me. I didn't come to your house to get a free meal or to have you serve Me. I really value your friendship and enjoy your company. You're accustomed to men using you and requiring you to serve them. Mary is more familiar with My heart than you are. Why don't you come sit and talk with us? We can eat later."

Huh? This is from the story of Mary and Martha. Most likely He is saying? Is that how we do hermeneutics at Bethel Church? Jesus was not a radical feminist talking to His female friends about all of the abuses they suffered under Jewish Law. Kris Vallotton is just making this garbage up as he goes along. What he is doing is evil. He is putting words and motivations onto our Savior that the text never comes close to in order to poison the minds of those who wish to be disobedient to the word.

"This passionate moment is almost lost in the testosterone-filled environment as the men begin to complain about the poor stewardship of wasting expensive perfume when it could have been sold to help the poor. Judas wants to sell the stuff and steal the money. But Jesus says, "Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me. For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. . . . Wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her" (Matthew 26:10--11, 13). There Jesus goes, protecting the feelings of a woman, valuing Mary's passion, validating a $60,000 experience over meeting the practical needs of the poor that pressed against their souls."

Kris continues to emasculate the Savior and Christianity. His rationale continues to be absurd. He does not seem to care why these stories exist in scripture at all. Doesn't he find it odd that Jesus would do all of these acts to "liberate women" yet never utter one teaching word about it? Of course not because Vallotton is not interested in what God is saying, he just wants to use God to push his pre-conceived point and sell as many books as possible.

"It is all starting to make sense to me, things like the reason the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery to Jesus but did not bring the man. If the Pharisees were simply trying to see if Jesus would extend grace to a person who broke the Law, they could have just as easily grabbed the guy. But they were not only upset about Jesus forgiving the guilty; they were angry that He was honoring and empowering women."

Says no biblical text anywhere. What Vallotton is doing to scripture is criminal. The Pharisees could care less that Jesus was nice towards women. Vallotton's entire argument is supposition born out of his wickedly deceitful heart. The only empowerment Jesus came to deliver was His power over sin in their lives, period. Everything else is Vallotton's NAR obsession with this world, which he idolizes. He idolizes this world because in it, he gets to play as a king in the religious system he has created, drive fancy cars, and make a lot of money.

"Women saw Jesus as their deliverer from cultural oppression, their liberator from religious bondage and their knight in shining armor. He came to deliver the oppressed and to set the captives free. Women loved Him because He valued them, protected them and taught them. He treated women as equals and refused to bow down to the male dominated, religious boys' club that had ruled the Jewish world for centuries."

This is infuriating because of the truth he is keeping from people. The real oppression both genders wanted was deliverance from Rome and Jesus did not even come for that. His kingdom is not of this world. Think about what nonsense Vallotton is selling here. Instead of focusing on sin and repentance he is teaching that Jesus came to break up the old boys club in Jerusalem and empower the poor oppressed women. There is not one iota of truth nor proof for his claims. The erotic-romanticized knight in shining armor should be an insult to women everywhere. They needed deliverance from their sins, just like men. We all still do.

Hi, thank you for the thought-provoking article. I want to point out a typo in the last paragraph, first sentence, quoted here: "In order to get it right, you need to obey the world of God and stop eviscerating it..." Notice you wrote "world" instead of "word." God bless your ministry!
