31 Days of Feasting on Theology: Egalitarianism

31 Days 2017 Large

Gentle Reader,

Egalitarianism: All people in Christ are equal. The members of the church are not all gifted and called in the same way – the Holy Spirit gives and shapes as He wills, for the good and proper functioning of the community – but all are called and qualified to use their gifts in the ministry of the church, regardless of age, class, gender, race or background. Women can and should preach and pastor if God has called them to do so. Submission in marriage is mutual.
