This Hashtag Is Creating Quite The Stir In The Church World.


Reader, #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear tag on Twitter is throwing down some truth. And you ALL need to go look at some of the responses. Author, Sarah Bessey started a much-needed conversation, on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.  The hashtag linking it all together is #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear, and the experiences women are relating are heartbreaking, and sadly point to a divisive rift in the church.



I think it's a conversation that's worth having simply because misogyny has been rampant in the church since its very inception. Some say if you don't believe it, read the not-so-subtle misogyny in the writings of one Paul from the New Testament. 

Christianity isn't necessarily the first, nor will it be the last of its kind to do this. Religion, in general, has been used across humanity, across history, to subjugate 50% of the population in the name of God. If you somehow feel offended by the 'Christian' component of this hashtag, you're missing the point.


Bessey is known for pointing out what she believes are misogynist practices in the church. An egalitarian and feminist, Bessey pulls no punches in her writing. In her book Jesus Feminist, she writes: “I look forward to the day when women with leadership and insight, gifts and talents, callings and prophetic leanings are called out and celebrated as Deborah, instead of silenced as Jezebel.”

  1. THANK YOU LADY BROCK.FOR THIS ARTICLE IT IS AN EYE OPENER. IT IS SO VERY TRUE.AS WOMEN WE ARE THE ONE'S THAT CARRY THE CHURCH.AND IT'S ABOUT TIME WE TAKE A STAND AND LET THESE FOLKS KNOW THAT SISTAS ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES. THEY WANT OUR FINANCES,OUR TIME,OUR TALENTS,AND ANYTHING ELSE THAT THEY CAN GET. YET WE NEVER GET THE RESPECT THAT WE DESERVE. JUST BECAUSE A WOMAN IS STRONG,EDUCATED THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT SHE IS A JEZEBEL. A WOMAN CAN BE STRONG AND EDUCATED WITH A MEEK,HUMBLE AND SWEET SPIRIT AND BE LIKE ESTER, DEBORAH, RUTH, HANNAH.I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT PAUL HAD A PROBLEM WITH WOMEN.RATHER THEY HAD THE SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL OR DEBORAH. JUST MEN ARE JUST INTIMIDATED BY A STRONG WOMAN.BUT A REAL MAN ISN'T INTIMIDATED BY ONE.HE APPRECIATES ONE. JUST LIKE A REAL WOMAN DON'T WANT A PUNK FOR A MAN.SHE WANTS A REAL MAN.

  3. I'm blessed to attend, serve, and minister in a church that doesn't hinder women from using their gifts and calling from God. But it hasn't always been that way, and a sincere study of the Word, and guidance of the Holy Spirit is needed in the Church to follow HIS instruction, and not the doctrines of man! God help us to grow and reach beyond the box we've put God in with denominational and gender boundaries. How are we going to reach the world when such a high percentage of men not only refuse to lead their own families, but serve God themselves? (Not meant as a chauvinistic statement, check statistics).
