Ep 97 | Gender Roles & the Attack on Gender | Redeeming Truth


Pastors Jon Benzinger, Dale Thackrah, and Kyle Swanson discuss the Redeemer Bible Church doctrinal statement on men and women. Does gender matter? Can we define our own gender?


Men and Women. We teach that God’s original and very good creation included making both men and women in His image. This makes both genders equal in value, dignity and salvation and equally worthy of respect and protection. However, the two genders are not identical, but were created to complement each other in role and function both in the church and in the Christian home. In the church, this means only men should be elders as well as publically and formally preach or teach to a mixed audience of adult men and women. In the Christian home, husbands have been given the responsibility of humble leadership and wives have been given the responsibility of willing, intelligent submission to that leadership, which includes never following their husbands into sin. Because these marriage roles reflect God’s very good creative purpose, being ordained by Him before sin entered the world, living in accordance with them fosters relational peace, blessing and joy. This is why marriage can only legitimately exist between one man (having XY sex chromosomes) and one woman (have XX sex chromosomes) and that these ideas are God-ordained, not ‘old fashioned’ or based on the ever-changing whims of societal acceptability and ultimatums. [Gen 1:26-27, 2:18-24, 5:1-2, 9:6; 1 Cor 11:3, 11:34-37; 1 Tim 2:11-14, 3:1-2; Eph 5:22-35; Col 3:18-19; Titus 1:6; Jas 3:9; 1 Pet 3:1-7].
