The gospel

Biblical equality is not a “new gospel”.  It’s a new depth of the gospel (new for some but not new to God).  For it is for freedom that Christ set us free:

– free of our sins
free of the condemnation that comes from sins and free from the slavery to sin

– free from oppression
worldly way of seeing each other  (gender, race, class)

Can’t teach the gospel without it, because it is the gospel.

  1. I’m really concerned by some Christians who think that Biblical equality is heresy, and that egalitarians are heretics. Disturbing!

    The gospel is all about equality. In Christ we are all one; there is no distinction in status regardless of race, gender or socio-economic situation.

    I love this very recent twitter by CBEInt: “Women’s status is assessed not by the fall but by Christ’s work on the cross.”
