Where The Spirit Leads 

God made Adam and Eve equals in the Garden.

Satan corrupted both, and man corrupted equality of gender with the

patriarchal/complementarian system that restricts the freedoms of women.

 Christ made all believers equal again (Gal 3:26-28)

 We are all equal parts of the priesthood with gifts from God that need to be shared, not restricted.

This Site is directed to the Churches of Christ, the fellowship of Christians of my family's spiritual heritage.

However, it is also intended for all Christian churches who practice gender restrictions, exclusion, and discrimination.
