One thought on “Christianity, Church, Women

  1. What a beautiful piece, Vicky.

    Jesus and Paul were True Feminists.

    But they were much more than that.

    If we spread the hermeneutical net of love further, we read that Paul was more than a feminist. Let us quote Galatians 3.28 in its fullest:

    “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.”

    That’s right. Paul got rid of racism AND slavery too.

    And I know Chris Meredith would support my exegesis.
