Ladies, are you weak, the bad kind of weak?

Women, are you silly? Gullible? Weak?

"Of course not!" many would say.

Well, that is good to hear, because many women who claim to be Christian are weak. Being weak, vulnerable, gullible, or silly makes you satan's target. And this is a problem.

Have you noticed that satan uses women to enter into households? He uses emotionalism, mysticism, Jesus Calling, Beth Moore, psychology, Ann Voskamp, IF:Gathering and many more teachings and teachers and books like this that lead women astray. Not as many are targeted to men.  Satan gets at men other ways. But satan targets women in very successful ways, and Kassian unpacks some of the techniques to which we succumb and knowing this, can avoid these traps.

At the 2014 True Women Conference, Mary Kassian expounded on the verse from 2 Timothy 3:6-7,

For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth

The title of her sermon is "Don't Be a Wimp: Kicking the Habits That Make Women Weak", where Kassian looks to Scripture to explore seven characteristics of weak women. These 7 characteristics are the 7 clauses in the verse. In the sermon, Kassian unpacks them for her hearers.

From the scripture the 7 characteristics are:

1. creep into households
2. weak women
3. burdened with sins
4. led astray
5. various passions
6. always learning
7. never able to arrive

Don't be a wimp, Ladies! A weak woman is captivated by lies, a woman of strength takes her thoughts captive. ~Mary Kassian

The end of the sermon was terrific, because Kassian focused on the fact that in some way or another, we are ALL weak, and in every way we always need Jesus and His strength. Check it out and be encouraged!

  1. What a wonderful message for all of us women. I plan to listen again as it is full of wisdom. Wish that message had been around 55 years ago but glad to hear it now.

  3. Saddened to find that Mary follows false teachers on Twitter such as Beth Moore, Voskamp, Meyer, schirer, Oprah, the warrens and others.

    1. Given Elizabeth's glowing report of her speech, it could simply be that that's the most practical way for Mary to keep tabs on them. 'Following' someone on social media doesn't necessarily mean agreement. Employers looking up employee facebook pages doesn't mean they want to be friends, they're looking for red flag behaviors. So I'd give the benefit of the doubt at first.
