New website on women's roles in church

A new website has just been launched by some Christadelphians which looks very thoroughly at the roles of women from a Biblical viewpoint. The articles are solidly grounded in Scripture and cover practically every relevant verse in analysing what the Bible teaches on the subject.

The website also includes the personal stories of the various contributors and add a "human side" to the exposition of Scripture. They show that for the various writers the study of this subject was linked to their personal spiritual development.

One person commented that "In searching around the Internet (checking discussion on the relevant passages) we have not come across anything like this." This is certainly an outstanding achievement in my opinion, and this website should make a significant contribution in the ongoing discussion of the subject and should help ecclesias to adopt practices which are consistent with the Biblical model.

Hi Bro,

Thanks so much for the link to the new website.

Our Sister Deb reminds me so much of her namesake in the times of the Judges... courageous and showing leadership at a time when most of the "Rich Young Rulers" in her meeting and others locally and overseas, have simply sold out to the "Status Quo" (read - 'the mess we are in') having chosen to maintain their status and position within the "System" by continuing to be "men pleasers."

The material that Deb and others have already placed on the Sistersspeak website is nothing short of inspirational and very thought provoking.

God bless you Deb.

May God raise up more sisters like yourself who are not afraid to stand for the things that Jesus taught us 2,000 years ago. Why, even His ministry was financed by women - cp Luke 8:3, and just look at the special way He treated women in an age when women were regarded as mere chattels.

Truly, in Christ there is neither neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Keep up the good work Sisters.
