Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free on Cheryl Schatz's blog

“Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free” videos are now on Vimeo!

From 2005 to 2006 I worked really hard on a project that has touched many lives. I did all the research, wrote the script, and then completed the video editing and graphic production. It was a long, hard process, but I am so pleased with the results. The finished DVD project is called Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free?

“Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free?” provides in-context answers for all the passages that seem to limit women’s ability to teach the gospel. There are 7 sections suitable for Bible study groups or personal study. This unique set of videos is fast-paced and visually entertaining. Each disputed Scripture is dealt with thoroughly and decisively to bring the viewer to an understanding of Scripture which connects all relevant Scripture together without contradiction.

Each of the DVDs is listed below with the specific information on each video. Next to the information are links to watch the videos free on YouTube. If you would like to purchase the DVD version, it is available from the “Add to cart” button at the bottom of this post for only $24.99 plus shipping.

Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free DVD

Many have been confused by what appears to be contradictions in the Scriptures on the issue of women in ministry. Pastor Michael W. Hicks wrote this review on the DVD set Women in Ministry Silenced or Set Free?

I am a Senior Pastor of a Foursquare Church. I have never been satisfied with the interpretations offered over several difficult verses which seem to restrict women in ministry. Not because I did not like them, but those interpretations left God Almighty constantly contradicting His word, or at least these interpretations. This DVD did an outstanding job of linking the passages together and answering them in a thoughtful and exceptionally Borean way. And they no longer make God out to be a contradictor of His own word. Wonderful job Holy Spirit, Thank you.

Remission times two

Remission times two On the Path - Cheryl Schatz blog

Remission times two

Almost four years ago (May 2013) I saw my doctor with the concern that I may have cancer. The summer that followed that visit was filled with a whirlwind of emotions as I started on the journey to save my life. It didn’t help that the local specialists were either booked or on vacation and the cancer was visibly growing. My husband went through my journey with me in such a supportive way that he would often say “We have cancer.” Little did we know at the time, that he too had cancer. It was just a mist showing up on a CT scan from 2011, but no one knew what it was, and his doctor at the time didn’t pursue a diagnosis. His cancer was diagnosed as a much slower growing variety, and he did not need chemotherapy until this January (2017). Now is the time that I can be there for my husband so that “We have cancer” is a saying that is repeated in our home. At the same time as his cancer was becoming a hard mass that needed immediate attention, I was feeling an alarming pain in my arm. I was concerned that cancer had further spread in my bones. On my last bone scan, I received a diagnosis of stage four cancer when a spot was found on my spine. My cancer doctor had not ordered a bone scan on my last checkup as he said he was afraid of what he would find. He was concerned that more chemotherapy could take away my quality of life. Then came the arm pain.

Sometimes Love Hurts


Sometimes Love Hurts by Cheryl Schatz

Sometimes Love Hurts

Have you ever experienced the pain brought about by love? This past week I was reminded that love sometimes hurts.

Time for my husband’s treatment

On Monday Richard’s doctor let us know that Richard’s cancer has grown and expanded into his blood system. Richard’s platelets and red blood cells are down, and this is a sure sign that the lymphoma in his bone marrow is starting to take over. It is time to knock the cancer back. He will start chemotherapy at the beginning of January 2017. It is one thing for me to have personally walked the pathway of harsh cancer treatments, but it isn’t as easy for me to see someone I love start this process. I love Richard with all of my heart. I do not want to see him harmed and living without him would be unfathomable. Continue reading

Link to The Giving - A Balanced View of the Sovereignty of God

Link to my “The Giving” blog

Here is a link to my other blog called The Giving – A balanced view of the Sovereignty of God. This blog deals with the issue of the Sovereignty of God and why I am not a Calvinist. It deals with John 6 and the text that seem to teach that Jesus only died for some. It is some of the things that we are working on for our new DVD called The Giving. It is the giving of the Son by the Father to us and the giving of the Son for the payment of our sin. Lots of interesting and indepth material on this blog.

I have a couple of other blogs where I post articles. I am posting links here, just in case anyone is interested in the articles that I have written. The link to my Women in Ministry blog (WIM) is here. This blog is for dialog on the issue of Women in Ministry in the Church. Does God gift women to teach the truth of the gospel to the Church? Or does God restrict the use of womens gifts for the common good? There are many years of articles on this blog.
