United In Christ 4: Women + The Church
WEEKLY: The debate about women and leadership in the church has caused a tumultuous rivalry in recent years. While the there seems to be strong prohibitions for women in ministry, there are some contextual questions that must be considered before we make a final conclusions. When the smoke is clear, we must be united as a church on issues that we cannot draw 100% conclusions on. Let us join together in rightly dividing the scripture and choose liberty in issues which are held in high debate among sincere, bible-believing, communities around the world!
LISTEN: This week’s worship set!
What tradition have you typically viewed as correct: complimentarianist or egalitarianism? Why?
Have you considered the alternative perspectives?
Have you looked into the issues culturally and textually or have you defaulted with a tradition that was handed to you? Why or why not?
Did anything change in your view after the Sunday Service regarding women in ministry? Why or why not?
Why should this not be a divisive issue for the church?
** While we may not agree with everything these authors say, diversity in perspectives is beneficial to growth, and we encourage an open and Spirit discerning posture while studying the Scripture and while reviewing any resource. **
