In every corner of the world, religious teachings on gender and power have an enormous imapct on human lives, especially those of girls and women. For this reason, Christians have a responsibility to accurately critique biblical teachings on gender. Standing on the biblical scholarship of evangelicals like A.J. Gordon, Catherine Booth, Fredrick Franson, Sojourner Truth, and Amanda Berry Smith, Christians for Biblical Equality (CBE) explores the view that males and females are created with equal dignity for the purpose of shared authority (Genesis 1:2628). CBE provides resources that equip all Christians to fan into flame the gifts within them (2 Timothy 1:6) regardless of gender.
This booklet summarizes the egalitarian position of Scripturethat Christians, both male and female, are equally called to exercise their God-given gifts with equal authority and equal responsibility in the church, home, and world.
