On Women in the Church and in Marriage

In the past I wrote a series of posts considering biblical teaching on women in the church and in marriage. Several people have asked me about this recently so I thought I’d make the posts easy to find by adding a page that serves as a table of contents for these posts, and linking to it.

In a nutshell, I argue that God created humans, male and female, to stand as peers in carrying his image. God often calls women into leadership. It is God’s call that makes a leader in His church – and nothing less will do. Regarding marriage, I argue that the best plan for marriage is as a partnership of mutual submission under the headship of Christ. I also argue that we must all be sensitive to God moving us to into change in His time. There are good, bible-honoring Christians who come to differing conclusions on these matters.
