As a change agent in the community, the body of Christ must come to an understanding of the biblical concept of the image of God. An understanding of humanity as the bearer of that image—regardless of any classification society or culture might impose—is intrinsic to the church’s engagement in seeking justice.

Some areas of sexual violence have been perpetuated by cultural practices like wife inheritance (a male relative inheriting his kinsman’s wife after he dies). While on the surface the church seemed to challenge cultural practices, this has not been the case with practices that have been sexual and which largely affect women. Wife inheritance and gender prejudice is a major contributing factor to the spread of HIV and AIDS. This session will seek to analyze reasons why the church has largely remained silent about the need for change and how biblical teaching against wife inheritance is needed. We will explore how the church can engage biblically with the issues of wife inheritance in general, and particularly, those that emanate from cultural heritage and deny the teaching of biblical equality.
