Everything Wrong with Fundamentalism in One Facebook Exchange

My friend Jory Micah posted this a few days ago:

I believe with all of my heart that God is calling women out of spiritual oppression/depression and spiritual imprisonment. God has unlocked every prison gate, but it’s up to us to be brave enough to stand up, get out, and leave darkness behind. #FreedomInChrist

Noncontroversial, right?

But somebody literally asked this in response:

Do you have Scripture to back up your statements? I am fully bound by Scripture and shall follow whatever the Lord may state as godly.

Wake up, church! When did we ever start doubting that God’s heart breaks for the oppressed? When did God’s Word become such a stumblingblock to clearly discerning truth and goodness?

But in case you’re as confused as that poor soul, someone set the record straight:

Did you really just ask if there is scriptural evidence to back up the statement that God is calling people to freedom? Like really? Because I’m pretty sure that’s the whole Bible. ;)

    Completely agree. I feel sorrow for this confused person. I, myself, have felt that in recent days…mostly because I listened to the advice of humans who wanted me oppressed and contained. I believe Christ is on the move to liberate his daughters from harmful thinking that they have no voice and need to be made small. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. AMEN!
