Whose Prayers Count More?

By: Chelsea DeArmond | September 5, 2000

Taste And See That God Is Good

By: Mimi Haddad | September 5, 2000

Egalitarians essentially face the same challenge encountered by the abolitionists and suffragists. Not only did they have to argue that the existing social structure was inferior and unbiblical, but they had to actually show that the new idea was superior and more closely aligned with Scripture.

Called To Climb

By: Karen Lichlyter-Klein | September 5, 2000

The Head Of The Wife?

By: Dorothy G. Stevens | September 5, 2000

"For the husband is the head of the wife, is that not what the Bible says?" my friend asked in all earnestness. "No," I replied, "that is not what the Bible says. Paul says that the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. How is Christ the [...]
