By on July 28, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

In Part 1 of this series, I summarized this debate and the criticisms against EFS (the eternal functional subordination of the Son to the Father) theologians, mainly Wayne Grudem and Bruce Ware.

The Trinity and Gender? Talking about the Recent Debate (Part 1)

By on July 21, 2016 in Theology with 5 Comments

I was enjoying my post-graduation trip in South Texas when several friends informed me of the recent online debate about the Trinity and gender roles. Again—yes, again—this issue is hotly debated.

It was probably the most frustrating conversation I’d had since the time I tried to explain how I forgot to snip the security tag out of my clothes and that’s what was making the alarm go off! (Another story for another day…) She was intelligent, well spoken, and passionate. She knew her stuff. She even knew a […]

Can We Be Christian Feminists?

By on November 19, 2015 in Feminism, Theology with 11 Comments

Feminism has been getting a facelift lately. From Beyonce’s 2014 VMA performance, to Emma Watson’s U.N. “He for She” campaign, women are identifying themselves as feminists to champion a broad umbrella of issues. Essentially, being pro-women is considered synonymous with feminism. It’s occurring among evangelical Christians, too. Earlier this year, the millennial-oriented, faith-and-culture publication, Relevant […]

A blond-headed, blue-eyed daughter, I looked like the perfect blend of my mother and father. As others commented on the likeness, my parents smiled inwardly knowing that it was their heavenly Father who had chosen the custom matching of their adopted daughter as He had “made a home for the lonely” (NASB) or, according to […]

In the beginning was the Word. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1,14) In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son […]

Do you remember recess back in elementary school when the time came to engage in some sort of team sport? Imagine the scene with me: two young children stand as captains picking from a crowd of their peers in order assemble the best team possible. The star athletes go quickly; those choices are always the […]
