How women are like God and why men want to worship them
In this groundbreaking work, Martin Zender asks the one question that no other book on human sexuality asks: Why is there sex in the first place? No other book makes procreation a side-effect rather than the raison d'etre of sexual attraction.
From the genesis of eroticism in Eden to your bedroom, Divine Principles of Sexual Attraction demystifies the behaviors of both sexes, at the same time making both men and women content with who God made them. You'll never look at the opposing gender the same way again.
Why women think the apostle Paul doesn't like them
Some verses in Paul's letters mislead women into thinking that God considers them to be inferior beings--passages such as, "I do not allow a woman to teach," "A woman must not speak in the ecclesia," "Man came before woman," and so forth. In Eve Raised, Martin Zender turns orthodoxy on its head, demonstrating that, not only do these verses not disparage women, they actually show woman to be a superior creation worthy of protection.
"The males, flattering themselves, read Paul's words and crown themselves kings. Strange. These passages, rightly grasped, make men the dedicated guardians of the fair sex."
The cry of popular Christianity today is to take the reins of government and turn the United States into a God-fearing nation. But is such a political feat—were it even possible—the responsibility of flawed humans? Isn't Jesus Christ returning to fix the Earth and its inhabitants, rather than congratulate it on a job well done? If you've wondered why you've generally felt worse rather than better after watching world and national news, here's your answer. At what point are we supposed to resist government—or is there even such a point? Zender's Beyond Politics will at first rock your political boat, but then anchor you to the most peaceful shore imaginable.
Why going to church today is unbiblical, un-Christlike, and spiritually risky.
With childlilke boldness and profound logic, Martin Zender exposes the spiritual bankruptcy of the religious institution. Zender's mastery of satire separates him from the pious; his Scriptural expertise launches him as the primary spokesman for those who desire God, but don't trust the establishments that boast His name.
"DEVASTATING. Religious hypocrites everywhere are squirming in their pews..."
Paul’s thirteen letters are a radical departure from the rest of Scripture, including Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The only place in the Bible where you will find details concerning God’s remedy for restoring the heavens is in the thirteen letters of Paul. The only place in Scripture where you will find law tossed out the window is in the thirteen letters of Paul. The only books in the entire Bible dealing with the special salvation of Gentiles (non-Israelites), who sin as a vocation and have never even heard of Moses—are the thirteen letters of Paul.
Here, and here alone—in the thirteen letters of Paul—are found the deepest depths of grace ever to be shed abroad from God’s heart.

Are there certain things in your life that you know are wrong but you do them anyway? Over and over again? Freedom from sin is based upon what Christ did at Calvary - not upon whatever it is you do in your darkened room, on your darkest days.
You have never read a book like this because, until now, no book like this has existed. Zender gets to the point, stays there, and backs himself up at every turn with scripture.
A critical look at the "salvation by willpower" doctrine.
Christian teaching: How many bad choices does it take to separate you from God? Just one...unbelief. Can we save ourselves? Christianity says "Yes!". The Scriptures say "No!" Human belief is a gift of God that acquaints people with something GOD already did.
In other words, we are not saved because we believe; we believe because we are saved.
Think your sins are ruining God's plans for your life? Think again.
We are clay pots by design, not because we have gone afoul of God's intention for us. Humility is a blessed thing. Mistakes remind us of our clayhood and drive us toward Christ. When we finally quit chasing perfection and accept these bodies of humiliation, we will become happier.
