This article condemns the possible election of a woman to head the large Southern Baptist Convention. We know that when sex is what motivates decisions we are on carnal grounds. According to the Bible, when natural man forms the basis for God’s people it is not God’s will. Here is the passage:
PHILLIPS For now that you have faith in Christ you are all sons of God. All of you who were baptised “into” Christ have put on the family likeness of Christ. Gone is the distinction between Jew and Greek, slave and free man, male and female—you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, you are true descendants of Abraham, you are true heirs of his promise. (Gal 3:28)
Being IN Christ means that He alone makes decisions about who is leading and what his people are doing. It is not based on gender differences in education, race or language. This is how the New Testament Church was run and where we need to return.
