Mary stood outside the tomb crying. “They have taken my Lord away, and I don’t know where they have put him. Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
We’ve lost Jesus, folks. Somebody has stolen him and we must find him.
At the Christians for Biblical Equality conference in last month, a woman told one of this blog’s readers her story:
I have a PhD in ministry. I studied under Wayne Grudem, and did so well that Wayne Grudem urged me to get a PhD. I asked him what I could do with a PhD? He said “Teach children in Sunday school.” Itold him that I don’t need a PhD to teach children. Finally Wayne Grudem could only come up with this: I could write books under the authority of some man.
I attended John Piper’s church. I told John Piper of my calling into full time preaching/teaching. John Piper said, “You are just like the homosexual, right desire, wrong gender.”
Listen to this story also heard at the conference:
A church hired a graduate of The Master’s Seminary, founded by John MacArthur. This seminary will not accept any women in leadership position and the seminary will not allow a woman to take Bible classes. This graduate told a church board: “Listening to a woman preach is like listening to a homosexual.”
They’ve stolen Jesus!
Where have they put him? Let’s go and get him. They’ve stolen our Lord!
They have put in His place, a fake jesus. A jesus who tells women that their voices are not to be heard. A jesus who calls women vile names and demeans them. A jesus so unlike the Jesus that Mary knew.
They have stolen Jesus! Where have they put him?
Mary said “Tell me where he is. I will go get him”
Will you join Mary and other women who are looking for the real Jesus?
