Humanity and Sin #9 – Male and Female (Egalitarianism)

The last two sessions of our class on Humanity and Sin is about the fact that God created Humankind as two genders. Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” We will address why God made two genders and what implications that has for us in our personal life as well as society at large and in the the church. Two distinct views of gender will be addresses. This week we will talk about Egalitarianism, which states that the Bible does not teach that women are in any sense, functionally or ontologically, subservient to men. Women and men hold ministry positions according to their gifts, not their gender. The principle of mutual submission teaches that husbands and wives are to submit to each other equally. Next week we will address Complementarianism which believes there are different roles for the genders.
