For Her Cause
by Jeremiah Shepherd
Women are extraordinary models of the handiwork of God. But in a world historically domineered by men, it has been difficult to find adequate appreciation for their significance, and many cultures continue to retain discriminatory views of them. Women have long been the subject and victim of controversy, misconception and religious misunderstanding, and all of humanity is affected as a result. However, within scripture, there are transformational keys into the divine calling of women and why they are both desirable and abundantly essential. Through Divine understanding of their purpose, we can remedy the issues of inequality through revelation. We can discover the beautiful picture of women that the Bible actually paints rather than the misogynistic depiction portrayed by legalistic traditions.
