Favored or Forsaken

Favored or Forsaken: Women in Authority

In light of the recent decision of Saddleback Church to shatter that SBC glass ceiling and ordain three women (hold your gasps until the end please), we explore the topic of Women in Authority to determine whether it is favored or forsaken. Join Resident Bible Scholar Erin Moon along with hosts Knox and Jamie as they strap on cultural goggles to unpack some controversial scripture, explore the recent history of women in the Church, and provide a gentle rebuke to some salty blog boiz in our most egalitarian episode yet.
