The theory of gender equality in African churches is a matter of serious controversy. One the one and, some church members oppose it and question the real origin of the theory, whether it is of freemasonery or a real Christian issue. They confront the countries where these theories are highly valued with their increasing divorce rates and question the meaning of passages such as;
- Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands (1 Peter 3:1)
- Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. (Colossians 3:18)
- Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands ... like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. (1 Peter 3:1-6)
On the other hand, the new arising fashion is Africa demands that women cease to submit themselves to their husbands, since sexes must be viewed as equal. The people begin to question what roles must be accredited to women and which roles are for their husbands or if they should have the very same roles. They refer to the fact that, gender equality is no more a problem in Britain, France or elsewhere in Europe on the social level. They combat discrimination and require equal roles for husband and wife. Thus, they think that Africa must follow.
Meanwhile, Bible students still need to go further in comprehending the will of God in the light of the Bible.
Wow amazing maybe she will make room for satanists also? Indeed I can think of some who think this is good too.
I find the story totally shocking. Yet we have some here who have no problem with it and find our "old fashioned attitude" to be the problem. In the words of a member on these threads we are kooks.
