There can be no doubt that the Lord’s radical treatment of women is the standard that today’s believers must follow. Though He was a Jewish man who knew the Mosaic Law, inside and out, where women were concerned, Christ Jesus still broke with Jewish culture, and He did so on purpose. The best examples of the many Jewish cultural customs He broke with, primarily by emphasizing the Spirit of the Law instead of just the letter of Law, are found in the biblical verses that deal with the Lord healing a woman who had an infirmity for 18 years.
The Lord NEVER promises to build a religious institution (a man-made organization consisting of numerous physical buildings, or meeting places also known as churches, where Christians publicly worship God). What the Lord promises to build is a spiritual House that is exclusively His; therefore, this House cannot be built by human hands. In other words, the Lord promises to build an “ekklesia”—His spiritually “called out” assembly, group, community, family (cf. Hebrews 9:11; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 6:19; 2 Corinthians 5:1). The bottom line is this: God always meant for the Lord’s Christian “birds of a feather” to flock together!
If this world’s believers (no matter if they are white, black, or other) want to be members of the genuine Body of Christ,then they must come to the realization that the following bigoted behaviors no longer should have a foothold in ANY part of their lives: racism, ageism, sexism, and partisanism, also neither the attitude of superiority nor the propensity to identify themselves by an assortment of denominational and theological monikers that essentially indicate that their belief systems are divisions of the ONE true Body of Christ. Otherwise, this world’s congregations that are meeting in the “institutional church’s” settings will remain segregated under the false pretense of being divided by FAITH.
