Gender Ideology & 21st Century Christians
September 1, 2021
While many modern conservative Christians uphold the idea that there are two genders, they often inadvertently eviscerate the male and female genders by making the masculine and feminine roles interchangeable. If we disregard the specific man/woman directives and differences in scripture, are we really valuing God’s design for us? Specifically, what should biblical womanhood really look like in the 21st century? Is historic Christianity's view of womanhood outdated and oppressive? Join us as we discuss these issues with SES alumna Nora Hale.

Join us as we discuss these issues with long-time SES student and friend Melissa Pellew.
