Is there room for equality in Christianity? Does God create men and women: different and unequal? Different and equal? How does this manifest in marriage partnerships and other cultural activities?

We are one in Christ Jesus. No Jew or Gentile, no male or female. Gal 3:28.

However, when it comes to marriage, God, a God of order, designed the order. For the marriage institution to work, there has to be order; not because anyone is better. It’s just like someone isn’t less of a man than Buhari, but because he is the President, he has to be afforded the honour of a head even if he were a woman. For things to run properly, there has to be a head. As Christ is our head and we joint-heirs with him. He is still Lord. If there is no head/leader, there will be chaos.

In God’s eyes, it’s a thing of nature, not gender. You are either a man under Adam or a man in Christ- first or second Adam.

It doesn’t mean they are not equals or that the woman is subject. Don’t forget, marriage isn’t a quest for who is more important. It’s two people giving their 100% to making it work. Husbands loving 100%, Wives submitting 100%, both loving and submitting to each other 100% as unto the Lord.

However, the context for this is marriage. Not in all area of life as some people think. I’ve actually had an experience of a guy not submitting to me because “the woman is supposed to submit to the man”. I was the leader chosen over that jurisdiction! He was my assistant and he would literally usurp authority and make important decisions without my consent. Like, what’s wrong with you bro?

Col 3:18 – Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

So, in order to wrap this up, I will quote Gal 3:28 again, “We are one in Christ Jesus. No Jew or Gentile, no male or female. . there is no gender preference in Christ.”

Though different and diverse, we are all equal in the eyes of our father; children bought back with the blood of His son. Understood?
