Even the Pharisees harassed Jesus by accusing Him of being born out of wedlock. When Jesus told the Pharisees in John 8:41, "You are doing the deeds of your father," they answered back, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father: God." Their implication was that Jesus is an illegitimate son born of an affair. He was no stranger to the scorn such situations brought on.

No Kris. That was not their implication. No one in recorded history has thought that was their implication. They were responding that they were pure descendants from Moses with no bastardization in their genealogy. Try picking up some commentaries before you spout off any more silliness from that wicked heart of yours.

"Whom do the three characters represent in this parable? The shepherd is God. The lost sheep represents those sinners the religious leaders are complaining about. And the 99 sheep are the Pharisees and scribes, who see themselves as righteous.

Here we go again--whom do the three characters in this parable represent? The prodigal son represents the sinners Jesus is hanging out with. The father who runs out to meet him represents God. And the elder son who wants his brother punished instead of pardoned represents the religious leaders who want everyone to pay for their sins.

Let's do this one more time--whom do the characters in the parable represent? The lost coin represents the sinners whom Jesus is looking for and whom the Pharisees are complaining about. The nine coins represent the Pharisees and scribes that view themselves as righteous. And whom does the woman represent? You guessed it--she represents God. The connotation is obvious to the religious onlookers who were familiar with the Creation story. I have quoted this verse several times already, but here it goes again: "God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27, emphasis added). Jesus is clearly saying to the Pharisees and scribes that it takes both the femininity of women, whom they oppressed, and the masculinity of men to represent God. In oppressing women fashioned in the image of God, religion blinds people to the feminine side of God. This relegates people to a one dimensional relationship with their Creator, and it robs them of seeing the full spectrum of the nature of God."

This is how badly Kris Vallotton is willing to mangle scripture to try and prove his unbiblical points. He wants to make the point that Jesus once used a woman as a representation for God. Why? Because in his twisted heart he thinks that will allow him to argue that God is both male and female, when in fact He is neither. So he turns to the three related parables about how God wants the lost to be saved and corrupts them beyond recognition. The 99 sheep are NOT the Pharisees. The prodigal's brother is NOT the Pharisees. Talk about a lesson in missing the point! Vallotton only makes them represent the Pharisses so he can pretend that the woman with the lost coin represents God. Jesus was not even remotely hinting to the Pharisees that it takes the oppressed femininity and the toxic masculinity to represent God. That is so idiotic I am amazed he had the nerve to publish it. The Genesis verse does not mean what he thinks either. The image of God is not the physical image of humanity. God is spirit. Now, I do not expect someone without the indwelt Holy Spirit to grasp that concept. The level of hubris by Vallotton masks how blasphemous he really is in these teachings.

"Many people are quick to point out that when Jesus chose His twelve disciples and later promoted them to apostles, none of them were women. I think given the historic content of Judaism and Jewish culture in general, it is easy to see why it would have been impossible for Christ to commission women with leadership titles and formal positions."

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!
