Equal Hope

by Dennis Sheppard | May-June 1998

I JUST RECEIVED the January-February issue, and I want to thank you for the articles on
male-female equality.

I JUST RECEIVED the January-February issue, and I want to thank you for the articles on male-female equality. I have recently become involved with Christians for Biblical Equality, and I have hope that more and more Christians will become witnesses to the world that Christianity does respect women as being equally created in the image of God.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
