Christian Feminism Basics

Have you ever wondered what it means to be a Christian feminist?  Find out here.

Being a Feminist or Being a Christian—Must I Choose?

I had to find out the truth. Did the Bible really limit women as those letters had insisted? Would I have to choose between being a Christian and being a woman?

Theologically and spiritually, the message of the Gospel is that the “spirit of fear” or “spirit of timidity” is not God’s intention for whole human beings; rather, the divine gifts already in our grasp are “power, love, and a sound mind [self-control].”
