The Scroll Links Up (January 2, 2015)

Things have been a little more quiet than usual in the blogosphere over the New Year period but here are some recent blog posts that encourage biblical equality.

 

“Why You Should Be a Christian Feminist” by Amy R. Buckley (Relevant)

“Scripture-minded women founded the first feminist movement in response to 18th-century social problems. Women of that era called for laws against child labor in filthy and unhealthy factories and mills. Deep concerns for family preservation led them to found temperance societies that called for men not to spend their wages at brothels and saloons erected by factory and mill owners (to recuperate wages). . .”

“Why Women Should Never Be Barred from Christian Leadership” (Life and Liberty)

This link takes you to three teaching videos presented by Pastor Jerry Dirmann of the Rock Church in Anaheim, California, who explains the reasoning behind the fact that his denomination has always ordained women.

“Women in the Church is Not a Secondary Issue” by Paula Fether (The Junia Project)

“If love and humility flow necessarily from the Gospel and the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, so also does violation of those principles flow from bias against women. Either we treat others as better than ourselves or we do not; either we gauge character and gifting by spirit or we gauge it by the flesh; either we follow the Spirit’s lead or we usurp the Spirit and seek control over others. This is why women in church leadership is not a secondary issue; there is no room for hierarchy in the Body of Christ.”
