The Image of God

April 21, 2013

I just read a great article by Melanie Springer Mock. Here are two excerpts:

“In Christian culture, too, women hear they are created in God’s image, but God is a Father and a King. That they are created in God’s image, but God will only speak through men. That they are created in God’s image, but it’s best that they remain silent, submissive, and under the headship of someone else who is created more in God’s image.”

and

“…enough to messages for our culture telling us that when the Bible says we are made in God’s image, it means that some are made more in God’s image than are others.”

Yep, that’s what inclusive God-language is all about!

Check out the whole thing: “Created in God’s Image: An Affirmation that Matters”
