Equality

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them (Genesis 1:27; NLT).

“Don’t let anyone call you ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one teacher, and all of you are equal as brothers and sisters” (Matthew 23:8; NLT).

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NIV).


Lord,
I don’t believe at all
That you intended
Women to be inferior to men
In any way
.

Nor did you mean them
To have less power,
Freedom, choice,
Or independence.

Even Saint Paul acknowledged
Our equality in full –
But only when he was at
His very best!
