Helpful sites for research on egalitarian views

Helpful sites for research on egalitarian views

I was also asked to have a place where we could list good blogs/web sites that promote godly views about women in ministry or issues of egalitarian marriage, etc. This post will be the permanent place to place links.

Pastor Wade Burleson http://kerussocharis.blogspot.com/ has been posting great articles on women in the church. While Wade may not agree with everything on women in ministry he is a great advocate for letting the Holy Spirit decide on who does what by the gifts that the Holy Spirit gives. You may want to page through some of the stuff that Wade writes regarding women to see how a “voice in the wilderness” is crying for sanity in the Southern Baptist Convention regarding women. Good stuff.

Wade Burleson’s father caught my attention quite a while ago and I just love the humility of Pastor Paul Burleson http://vtmbottomline.blogspot.com/ Pastor Paul often writes on the women’s issue and he is very supportive of using women’s gifts in the body of Christ. One of the things that I appreciate about Pastor Paul is his humble willingness to be taught. He does not look down on women or a person’s race or their age. He believes that he can learn from anyone when the person speaks the truth of God’s word. Paul speaks from the wisdom of his many years of service to the Lord Jesus.

Wayne Leman is a very caring man who started http://complegalitarian.blogspot.com/ This is a respectful place for both complementarians and egalitarians to dialog. Wayne is a bible translator and has a lot of wisdom in his years of service in the Lord as well. I have been privileged to meet Wayne in person and I greatly respect Wayne and his dear wife Elena and their hard work in bible translating.

Then there is a great egalitarian discussion board http://equalitycentral.com/forum where you can find friends, coffee and fellowship. Complementarians are welcome there too if they would like to dialog with respect. You will need to register to post, but it is worth the register to meet the great guys and gals there!

Christians for Biblical Equality (CBE) http://www.cbeinternational.org/new/index.shtml is the Mother of all sites on biblical equality having been around since the time of Eve 🙂

Go ahead and add to my list. This post will be the chief post where we can list great web sites and blogs about biblical equality.

For those who would like a picture to appear by your comments go to http://www.engravatar.com and sign up. This program will allow you to pick a picture from your hard drive or from the internet that will appear by your comments. Kind of cool.

Another very helpful web page is http://www.DoesGodReallyPreferMen.com where you can request a great ebook called “Does God really prefer Men?” This ebook is especially helpful in establishing the base of an egalitarian marriage. I also found her exegesis on some of the hard passages of scriptures to be very akin to my own finding in scripture. Leslie Johnson writes that this is because we have the same Dad, the same Savior and we are filled with the same Holy Spirit. I heartily agree! For those of you who are especially looking for resources on marriage, make sure to request this free e-book from Gary and Leslie Johnson.

  1. Hey, thanks for the plug, Cheryl! 🙂
    Also, I’m working on an overhaul of the equality central site, including a new message board. You can currently see the demo at This Link for their main site, and from there you can see the proposed message board and blog.

  2. Cheryl,  thank you for the sites!!!!!  Huge help, and I have already been burrowing around on them!!!!!

  3. Mom, you might want to add these links to your sidebar.  If so, just add them under a new category (perhaps called “Research”) and they will show up after your “Product->Purchase DVD” link.

  4. http://www.instone-brewer.com is a great site for info on marriage and divorce in 1st century perspectives.  He also has visual sermons he posts which are quite good.

    It is useful to know that the ESV and HCSB translations were done in a hierarchical assumption and that TNIV and NRSV were done in a gender accurate way.  When you compare these you can often discern concerns (as in potential weaknesses of their position) of the hierarchicalists by reverse engineering the way they choose to translate some verses as they want to make it simple for the reader to agree with them.

  6. Hi Cheryl,

    Great to see that CBE appears among your recommendations but I don’t see the blog site, the Scroll. I notice that a number of your commenters from WIM are regulars on the Scroll. We also encourage peaceful and helpful debate. It can be found at:
    Thanks, Trevor.

  7. Thanks TL. I did put the link in but it didn’t show up after I submitted the comment and I didn’t know how to edit it. The comment was pending review so I thought that some helpful person would sort it out for me.

  8. A few of these sites don’t exist anymore. I hope I don’t sound pushy but I’d love a 2.0 list.
