Is a woman VP biblical?

October 9, 2008

Below, you’ll find links to a few blog posts addressing this issue, and they are good food for thought… My goal in this post is to get us thinking about much more than whether or not Palin can biblically be a VP… My hope is that we’ll think rigorously through what the Bible has to say about God’s design for men and women – something that is immensely practical for each of us. Other weighty questions arise too – such as the authority of Scripture, how to rightly interpret Scripture, and how to rightly look to Scripture in questions about “gray areas”…

A little “glossary” help before you read the posts below: A “Complementarian” is a Christian who believes that God created men and women as equal in dignity and value, but designed, and intended by God, to fulfill different roles. This is the position of our church. An “Egalitarian” is a Christian who believes there should be no distinction between men’s and women’s roles.
