This post is a Top 3 Winner for The Junia Project’s 2017 blog contest. “It was an American supermodel who first showed me an egalitarian view of the Bible. Kathy Ireland shared with me in an interview about her first modeling trip overseas when she was 18, when her loneliness led her to read the Bible her mom had slipped into her suitcase, and how Jesus’ love, honor, and care for women led her to God.”
Through the Fall, the human race became slaves.
Slaves to sin
Slaves to death
Slaves to shame
Slaves to a life isolated from God
Slaves to broken relationships
Slaves to patriarchy
But we were not created for slavery. No, we were created for so much more than that. Sin may have damaged what God had intended, but Christ came to restore what sin had broken.
And to what end? Why did Christ seek to restore humanity?
