Some scary statistics

Julie Ross, one of the co-authors of The Black Swan Effect: A response to gender hierarchy in the church compiled these scary statistics:

Jesus came to bring good news to the poor, to release captives, to free the oppressed.

What should be the response of his body, the church, to these figures that represent not numbers, but people for whom Jesus died? What can we do? How can we get involved? What can those of us involved in the simple/organic/house church movement do?

  1. Certainly we must stand against the miss-treatment of humans just because they are female..let The Lord who lives in you control how you act towards anyone..don’t rely upon human opinions that take the bible and interpret it wrongly..listen to The Lord who lives in you..he is a being of love not abuse.
