Our western culture is extremely polarized right now. We must be either conservative or progressive; republican or democrat; good or evil. If we choose a side, half the world stands with us; if we don't, the whole world stands against us.
Welcome to part 2 of my series on Biblical interpretations of Christian Marriage! In this post, I will dive deeper into the concept of interpretation, and offer some suggestions when choosing between interpretations. I'd love to hear your feedback or questions in the comments!
Today I will be discussing where Christian egalitarians and complementarians find Biblical support. We will not be able to cover all of the significant Bible passages in one post, so this will be part 1 with more to come. First, I will make the case that both egalitarians and complementarians use the Bible to support their viewpoint. Second, I will list the most common Biblical passages used in the debate. Finally, I will end with a question that is important to consider when considering theological matters.
Hello reader, and welcome! This will be the first post in a series diving deep into the ideas of Christian egalitarianism. In this post I want to discuss the phrase Christian egalitarianism—what it means, what it doesn’t mean, and how it relates to marriage. I hope the words will help you on your journey in life, and ultimately encourage critical thinking and loving behavior.
