The Scroll Links Up 4/11/14

Here’s this week’s installment of The Scroll Links Up: the post where we highlight posts from around the web that proclaim biblical equality for men and women in the church and home. Enjoy!

A New Book That Sets the Sisters Free! (Frank Viola interviews Felicity Dale)

The book will set many women free, inspiring them to serve the Lord unhindered. It will also educate many men to understand how the Lord views our sisters in His service.

 The Feminists We Forgot, by Sandra Glahn (Christianity Today)

This “new woman” is not an invention of second-wave feminism either. Betty Friedan did not start the “woman movement;” Christians did. Motivated by the belief that men and women were made in God’s image to “rule the earth” together, these pro-woman, pro-justice believers sought to right wrongs for those who had less social influence.

Male-Female Pairs and Parallelism in Luke’s Gospel by Marg Mowczko (New Life)

Luke “gender-paired” people, parables and points in order to highlight an important principle concerning gender.  More so than in the other gospels, Luke’s gospel shows that men and women are equal recipients of God’s grace and equal participants in the community of Jesus’ followers.

What Equality in Christ Means for Men by Bob Edwards (The Junia Project)

In the first church I attended, I learned that to be a man is to be a leader, a provider, and a protector. I learned that it was my responsibility in church to discern truth from error. It was my responsibility to accurately and effectively convey this truth. I was responsible to shepherd God’s people, and even to apply biblical discipline when needed. Evidently, something about being male made me a suitable candidate for these responsibilities.

Sanctification, by Sarah Schwartz

What a terrible burden to bear, brothers, to carry the pressure of always being ahead, despite your own needs or seasons or wrestlings. What a terrible thought, sisters, to think that you must be less in order for your husband to be more, that you have less to offer your spouse when it comes to looking and loving more like our Jesus

Tie-Breaker, by Wendy Herrmann Smith 

Once both parties are responding to God with an attitude of obedience, the message of God will be clearer. And the husband and wife will not be at odds. This is the harmony that God has in mind for married couples.
