I am just amazed that people actually follow this guy and think he is remotely biblical. He is most certainly not. I recently dissected an article he wrote defending women in leadership within the church as it seems he is hawking a new book on this subject. Within his article he offers two of the chapters free to download and all was quiet on the heresy front this morning so I took a peek. The level of inaccuracy and asinine conclusions were quite frankly staggering. I will try and review the fifth chapter here, entitled, Jesus: Founder of the First Women's Liberation Movement. The title alone should warn anyone with discernment that we are in for quite a heretical ride but I want to stress that nearly everything he wrote was false. It is only for the sake of time, that I am highlighting the lowlights so we can better understand how horrifically bad Kris Vallotton is with theology. Let us reason once more beloved. All quotes are from Kris Vallotton.

"For the most part, the Church has domesticated the Lion of the tribe of Judah, relegating Him to a household pet or imprisoning Him behind the bars of some religious zoo. But the truth is that when Jesus walked the earth, He was a countercultural radical who not only healed the sick and raised the dead, but also liberated the oppressed and set the captives free. Women were at the top of His list!"

Yes, Jesus was a motorcycle riding free radical in His days, sigh. The truth of course is that Jesus did not come to end nor change the law whatsoever. He was not "counter cultural." He was anti-false teaching. The captives set free were those oppressed by sin. The argument Kris is trying to set up here is that Jesus came to liberate the oppressed women in His culture and that point is ridiculous and absurd at the same time. By the way, Jesus came as the lamb, not the lion. When He returns for the second time it will be as the lion and Kris will have plenty to answer for.

"I guess we should not be surprised that most Gentile women were much more powerful and respected in their cultures than women in Judaism were. In Macedonia, women built temples, founded cities, engaged armies and held fortresses. They served as regents and co-rulers. Men admired their wives and even named cities after them. Thessalonica was such a city, and there women were given inheritable civic rights. It was the Macedonian businesswoman Lydia who founded the church at Philippi after Paul led her to Christ (see Acts 16:14--15)."

I do not even want to get into the absolute butchering of history that Vallotton traffics in. I highlighted this solely for the butchering of the story of Lydia. Kris states that Lydia founded the church at Philippi. Here are all of the bible verses regarding this woman:

One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul. And after she was baptized, and her household as well, she urged us, saying, "If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay." And she prevailed upon us. -- Acts 16:14-15 (ESV)"

So they went out of the prison and visited Lydia. And when they had seen the brothers, they encouraged them and departed. -- Acts 16:40 (ESV)

Is there any mention of Lydia starting the Philippian Church? Of course not. Why does Kris rob this from Paul, who actually did found the Philippians Church? Because Paul is a man, Lydia is a woman, and he was hoping you would be too lazy to check his lies.

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!
