Sophia "trapped" (drawing by nakedpastor)

Today I’m giving away a fine art print of one of my most popular Sophia drawings, “trapped”. This will be one of the first drawings in my book of my Sophia collection… the beginning of her story towards her own independence and freedom. It’s almost ready to be assembled!

If you want to go ahead and buy a print, GO HERE.

All you have to do is:
1. leave a comment on this post. Anything… even just a “hi”.
2. you must sign up for my newsletter

Sorry, but I won’t be responding to comments. Don’t take it personally. I appreciate every one of you. But my comments would mess up the draw.

That’s it. Only one comment per person. It is a draw. So I will end entries at midnight tonight my time (Atlantic Time… an hour east of Eastern Time). No, I don’t live in the ocean. I’m in Eastern Canada, if you’re wondering. I’ll draw the name tomorrow and announce it then.

Good luck! Tell your friends.

Did you see the One Minute Message I posted last night How To Split the Church in 3 Easy Steps?

    Perfect example of why I have a problem with many churches. They teach all of this and then try to say that they respect women. :-

  6. Steve Martin says:

    The verse (in the Bible) that we latch onto concerning women is this, “There is neith Greek nor Jew, slave nor free, male or female. We are all one in Christ.”

    Women and men are EXACTLY equal in our congregation.

    Biblicists latch onto those (verses) that surround Sofia.

  16. Amber says:

    Hello, I just want to say love all your art work. The kind of art work I like to see.

  17. Vie says:

    I’m exactly there with you Christina.

    There was a study done on the masculine perception of equality, that if you had a group of 10 people, 5 are men, and 5 are women, the men would feel like the women are in the majority, and for them, a “fair” amount would be 2/3 women in 10 people.

    Just look at congress or the UK parliament.

    So maybe their definition of “respect” is “not abusing them”.

    Ooh…pick me! Pick me!!!!

  24. Jenne Ramsey says:

    I spent a few years trapped just as this illustrates by repressive interpretations of the very verses shown….the process of becoming free is long but I am finding hope. Looking forward to your book.

  25. Jo Ann Basel says:

    1 Cor. 11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

    6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

    Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

    I peter 3-3 is the one on the wall that stood out to me today and 1 cor. 11:5-6

    I have heard these words taught in several different ways.

    Seeing the many pictures of women in their burkas on the news recently has caused me to wonder:

    Black Burka’s: Did they originate with the Muslim’s or with the Israelites?

    What has history proven? Just wondering.

    How sad that in churches today, men still have women imprisoned, even though the black burka is invisible and cannot be seen with the naked eye, women are nevertheless still imprisoned.

    Swimming up stream is the only way for me, no turning back: )

    So happy their are so many others headed upstream, also: )

    So gratefully that hearts and eyes have been and are being awakened…

    …to the Name, the Nurture and the Nature of Father Gods loving heart for all his Sons and Daughters, which includes all of mankind.

    Thank You Father God…

    Thank you David and one and all for expressing and sharing your hearts so freely.

    Love and Hugs to one and all: GGMHA
