Christianity’s historical focus on diversity and inclusion has been good for girls from the start—and it still is. Kimberly will share more during her workshop at CBE's 2022 International Conference.

There is a new Christian ethic that arises out of Galatians 3:28 when we recognize what it means to be a new creation made one in Christ.

KEEP READING

Only when we interpret Galatians 3:28 as one piece of the larger story of Scripture can we appreciate how Christ has ended the dualism that was creating division between our spiritual standing and vocational calling.

Complementarians protest when we insist that Priscilla was not only a doctrinal teacher but also a pastor/elder. Terran will share more during his workshop at CBE's 2022 International Conference.

KEEP READING

To read Priscilla’s story through a lens of male-only leadership diminished her calling and also Paul’s. It also obstructs, demeans, and even abuses God’s welcome to women leaders and their male allies then and now!

KEEP READING

Christians can assume egalitarian interpretations of Paul are a modern phenomenon, but evidence suggests that is incorrect. Meet one Christian group who ordained women for 200 years after Paul because of Gal. 3:28.

Many evangelicals do not know how to read the very texts they claim establish their distinctive identity. Far from viewing the biblical texts too reverently typical evangelical approaches fail to respect the text enough.

KEEP READING

"Although the people living in the Greco-Roman world might not have been able to imagine a world in which slavery does not exist, Paul’s churches leave the hierarchy of slavery behind as part of the world that is passing away, along with ethnic division and gender hierarchy. Paul removes the power differential from Philemon and Onesimus’s relationship (in their church), and he replaces that differential with koinōnia by asking Philemon to receive Onesimus as if he were Paul."

KEEP READING

Both egalitarians and complementarians wish to retain the distinction of male and female, but for egalitarians, gender differences are not accompanied by rank, rule, authority, or power. It is not the male and female “distinctiveness but their inequalities of religious role that is abolished in Christ.”
