CBE Endorsement: It puzzles me why we still have to work so hard for biblical gender equality, especially in contemporary America. When missionaries came to China they brought the Gospel and its liberating power. Today, in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China, men and women serve the Lord side by side without any discrimination. Yet the churches in the West are going backwards. They are ‘binding the feet of women’ and put unnecessary hurdles on their way to serve the Lord. Thank God for the vision of CBE and the perseverance of their team to faithfully remove the hurdles with careful biblical scholarship and messages of hope and love.
CBE offers Christians a tremendous opportunity to learn to live together more faithfully as God’s people. From its inception, CBE has worked effectively and tirelessly to articulate God’s passion in restoring the fullness of the biblical witness regarding gender relations within the body of Christ.
Cecilia Yau serves on CBE’s Board of Reference.
