Doctrinally Sound Teachers

Even More Biblically Sound Blogs and Podcasts by Christian Women

even-more-blogs-podcasts

Where are all the doctrinally sound female Bible teachers?

Can’t you just recommend somebody – anybody – whose Christian book we can walk into a store, pick up off the best-seller shelf, and buy?

Unfortunately, with a few rare exceptions, the answer is no. There are several reasons for that which I won’t go into in this article, but, generally speaking, you’re not going to be able to walk into your local Christian retailer and buy a book authored by a doctrinally sound Christian woman whose name you recognize. Women who rightly handle God’s word? You’ll usually find them out of the spotlight and close to home- serving their husbands, families, and local churches, and impacting them with the gospel- too busy for book tours and autograph sessions.

That’s the kind of Christian women you’ll find below, only they’ve dedicated their moments of spare time to edifying others online. Their blogs and podcasts can be a great leisure time supplement to what you’re learning in church- but they’re not a substitute. Look to your pastor, good teachers, and the godly women of your church for teaching and discipleship.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Don’t take my (or anyone else’s) word for it that any ministry, podcast, book, or blog is biblical in its doctrine. You MUST do the work of comparing with Scripture everything you read and hear. If it doesn’t match up with God’s word (in context), chuck it.

beautiful-thing11. Beautiful Thing– If you’ve been with me for a while, you might recognize Jess’s name as the author of a couple of our awesome guest posts. Regarding the mission of Beautiful Thing, Jessica says, “My heart for this ministry is to provide biblical strength for women that will encourage you to be, like Mary, devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.

sheolgians-transparent-logo-small4. Sheologians– The tagline of this podcast says it all, “Theology for women.

6. Wise in His Eyes– Rebekah has written a number of helpful reviews of books authored by false teachers, which you’ll find linked in my articles. About her blog, Rebekah says: “Through biblical articles and book reviews, Wise in His Eyes seeks to help women exercise discernment in what they read and believe about themselves, God, and holy living…There is a lot of chaff masquerading as wheat. We need sound doctrine and solid teaching on theology and practical living–knowing who God is and what it means to love and serve God as a woman.” Facebook  Twitter

10 More Biblically Sound Blogs and Podcasts by Christian Women

10 blogs

The internet is glutted with “Christian” women’s blogs, many of which are anything but Christian because they don’t teach what accords with sound doctrine.

Well, genuinely regenerated Christian women have had enough. Enough of the false doctrine from celebrity divangelistas. Enough of the feel-good fluff that takes them nowhere in their quest for spiritual maturity. We want bloggers and podcasters who will push us to study God’s word, who exhort and encourage and even step on our toes as we seek to be conformed to the image of Christ.

10 Biblically Sound Blogs and Podcasts by Christian Women wasn’t enough for you precious ladies. You clamored for more! So, it is my pleasure to present for your edification 10 MORE Biblically Sound Blogs and Podcasts by Christian Women.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Don’t take my (or anyone else’s) word for it that any ministry, podcast, book, or blog is biblical in its doctrine. You MUST do the work of comparing with Scripture everything you read and hear. If it doesn’t match up with God’s word (in context), chuck it.

1. Berean Research–  “Berean Research exists to help Christians discern and equip themselves to keep themselves and their brothers and sisters from falling into deception. This project is a joint effort by a group of discernment veteran reporters who have researched the movements and leaders deceiving the flock.”  Twitter

Va7z20wD_400x4002. Abandoned to Christ– Sunny Shell writes “about marriage, biblical submission, parenting, friendships, evangelism, and my battle with a rare metabolic disease for the past 11 years—all with the eternal, rich and hope-filled perspective of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I try to keep it real, while keeping it pure, to keep it praiseworthy.” Facebook  Twitter

3. The Outspoken TULIP– DebbieLynne Kespert’s blog “challenges people to think and live biblically within a culture that increasingly resists Christ. I desire to honor Him. Therefore, I will speak boldly about the Word of God, even when doing so goes against popular opinion. Scripture, not prevailing culture or evangelical fads, informs my worldview. I will address various trends in the professing church that defy sound Christian doctrine.” Facebook  Twitter

cropped-cropped-10712839_693958314023197_3549332658503318398_n14. Solid Food Ministries– Debi Martin’s excellent blog examines Scripture and a variety of theological topics. “Solid Food Ministries exists to provide Biblically sound resources (solid food) for the maturing believer – helping Christians grow from milk to meat.” Facebook

5. Guarding the Deposit “My desire has always been to warn about occult practices outside of the church, but now that I realize that these practices have entered the church, my burden has become so much greater…I want to warn and inform.” Give Pamela Couvrette’s informative blog a read.  Twitter

6. Women Under Grace– Women Under Grace is a relatively new blog that deals with error and heresy in the church. It teaches Christian women to be good Bereans regarding biblical teaching, rather than relying on their feelings, and to be women of grace who respond graciously when confronted with false teaching in the church. Update: The Women Under Grace blog has been discontinued, but you can join the “Women Under Grace: A Reformed Theological Group for Women” Facebook group at the link above. Facebook

steakandabible_400x4007. Steak and a Bible “I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of Scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church.” Twitter

 

8. Everyday Doxology– Diane Bucknell says, “This little blog for women is a way to express my love for Jesus Christ through writing. I love studying theology and also what God has done in and through His people throughout history. Theology should lead us to worship our Creator and Savior in our everyday life, or it will become little more than an intellectual exercise.” (No social media available.)

9. The Reluctant First Lady– Laurel Davis is a pastor’s wife. Her goal in blogging is “to get you to THINK about your life and service to the Lord Jesus Christ — what you believe, why you believe it, how you live it out, and why you live it out the way you do.” Facebook  Twitter

naomiii-300x13610. Naomi’s Table– “We study [God’s] Word and learn about the often confusing roles the world tells us we need to take on, and compare those pressures with what the Bible says about Godly women and discipleship.” Facebook  Twitter

10 Biblically Sound Blogs and Podcasts by Christian Women

10 blogs podcasts both

False teachers. You can’t throw a rock out the window these days without hitting one. But are there any “good guys” out there who are getting it right? Discipleship, Bible study, and theological issues bloggers who rightly divide God’s word? You bet. You might have to do a little digging and turn over a few rocks, but they are out there, most, sans “Christian Celebrity” status, plugging away day after day, faithfully teaching God’s word. Here are ten blogs, podcasts, and resources by godly Christian women. No name it and claim it. No signs and wonders. No health, wealth, and prosperity. Just sound doctrine straight from God’s word.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Don’t take my (or anyone else’s) word for it that any ministry, podcast, book, or blog is biblical in its doctrine. You MUST do the work of comparing with Scripture everything you read and hear. If it doesn’t match up with God’s word (in context), chuck it.

equipping-eve-051. Equipping Eve– Erin Benziger has been running a fantabulous discernment blog for a while now, but her new blog and podcast are focused on equiping women “with ‘fruits of truth’ from God’s Word so that they will be prepared to stand strong in an age that is ripe with deception. Facebook  Twitter

2. Chapter 3 Ministries–  Sharon Lareau writes a wonderful blog on marriage, apologetics, and the Christian life. “Marriage and apologetics are the two main topics addressed here, but not the only ones. Chapter 3 Ministries reaches beyond them. We cannot limit our Christian experience to one or two things. There is so much in Christ to love and learn about!” Facebook  Twitter

3. Sola Sisters– “Our desire with our ministry is to hold up false teachings that are being taught in the name of God to the actual word of God itself, the Bible, in order that we, and others, would not be taken captive by dangerous false teachings,” and “…for our readers to become equipped themselves in learning the principles of how to practice discernment.” Sola Sisters is currently on hiatus, but the information on their site remains relevant and invaluable.

6. Christian Answers for the New Age– When it comes to mysticism and the New Age movement, Marcia Montenegro really knows her stuff. “Christian Answers for the New Age is a ministry responding to alternative religions: to inform and educate others about New Age and occult beliefs; to respond to those involved in New Age/ occult/ Eastern belief systems with the love and truth of Christ (I Peter 3:15-16); and to serve as a resource on aspects of New Age/ occult thinking and practices such as astrology, psychic powers, meditation, witchcraft/ Wicca, alternative healing, magick, etc.” Facebook

Susan7. Susan Heck– “Our ministry is very narrowly aimed, with an emphasis on sequential teaching of the Bible marching verse-by-verse through the Sacred Library.

(No social media available.)
