Hi, it’s us and we want you to know that this false gospel you speak of? It’s alive and well in our household.
We don’t adhere to the pretty little gender role road map, which supposedly leads to holiness. You can worry about us if you wish. You can think we’ve chosen the broad road that leads to destruction. Yet, I think the narrow gate, spoken of in Matthew 7:13-14, is exactly where we’re headed. Why? Because it leads to life.
We’re all about life-giving things in our family.
We value laughter, peace, singing and dancing. Prayer and faith traditions are both quiet and loud in our home. Compassion is practiced when love doesn’t come easily, and hope is given in smiles, knowing nods, and words of encouragement.
Sometimes we’re a beautiful mess and other times you’d think we’re the picture of happiness. We aim to practice loving one another in the way we need to experience love, as individuals, not as genders.
Men and women need to be loved in the way that Jesus loved, and that’s where it begins and ends for us.
Our lives, the way we live out our relationship, it’s an offering to the God who gives us breath, to the God who restores, to the God who delights in his creation. The God who gave us a gospel full of grace is the same God we’re striving to know, and that’s the gospel we try to live out in our daily life.
Last time I checked, Grace doesn’t come in the size false. Grace says that nothing can separate us from the love of God; no person, no relationship, no church teachings, nothing can separate us from our God.
Egalitarians embracing a false gospel? Not possible.
