Sunday’s sermon on gender roles and the Bible probably raised a lot of questions and maybe even some disagreements. So I have decided to post a lot of possible resources for study and interaction with the topic. If this is a hot topic for you or an issue in which you would like to dive deeper into the Biblical rationale for the Complementary view, which contains the idea that men and women are created equal as image bearers of God, but in creation they are also given differing and complementary roles as male and female.
The Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood – Organization seeking to inform people on the Biblical view, and lead churches and homes to embrace the Biblical view. They are also seeking to bring like-minded churches and ministries together. The website has an unbelievable amount of information, resources, and sermons for your further study.
