Christian egalitarianism holds that all people are equal before God and in Christ; have equal responsibility to use their gifts and obey their calling to the glory of God; and are called to roles and ministries without regard to class, gender, or race Christian Complementarianism- is a theological view held by some in Christianity, that men and women have different but complementary roles and responsibilities in marriage, family life, religious leadership, and elsewhere. The word "complementary" and its cognates are currently used to denote this view. For some of those whose complementarian view is biblically-prescribed, these separate roles preclude women from specific functions of ministry within the Church, with the notable exception of the leadership role of the deaconess, in many Christian denominations.  It assigns leadership roles to men and support roles to women, based on certain biblical passages. One of its precepts is that while women may assist in the decision making process, the ultimate authority for the decision is the purview of the male in marriage, courtship, and in the polity of churches subscribing to this view.

So, therefore we do not actually know that the proposition is true unless we are actually attending to it. For the second phase of the statement, “I am certain of whatever I clearly and distinctly perceive only because I am certain that God exists,” in his proofs of the existence of God, Descartes uses clear and distinct understanding of the idea of God, held in in our mind throughout each proof. Having proved God’s existence, he can now claim that he is certain that whatever he has clearly and distinctly perceived, he can be certain of. He is also certain of this general principle, linking clearness and distinctness to truth, because God exists, and because God is not a
This female genderization of God is the primary reason their books were excluded from the New Testament. Those who were in power during this time wanted to ensure that the word of God matched the social values that they believed in. Ever since the story of Adam and Eve women have taken on somewhat of an untrustworthy reputation. Early Jewish texts describe women as the deceiver of man,
Kilbourne 2 Jean Kilbourne is a feminist author, speaker, and filmmaker who is internationally recognized for her work on the image of women in advertising and her critical studies of alcohol and tobacco advertising. She has a popular essay piece called “Two Ways Women Can Get Hurt”, in this particular piece her main argument is that men and women are misrepresented as sex symbols and tools. The media puts women on display that dehumanizes them; the media also shows that women are usually submissive against men. In Judith Lorbers essay called, “Believing is Seeing”, Lorber argues that men and women are different biologically, that society can’t just label human beings as male and female. Lorber also says that not all people are completely men or completely women.
This example can be seen by feminists as maintaining patriarchy in society so that women have less or different rights to men, meaning that men have more freedom to do what they want, while women are observed much more closely. Another example from De Beauvior (1953) argues that most scriptures in most religions suggest that 'man is master by divine right', if man is master by diving right, then what does this mean for women who practise religion is society? According to the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christian Church, women are excluded from priesthood. In 1992 the Church of England decided that women were able to become priests, although this has brought up bitter controversy, and only came about after very long and difficult campaigns. In Buddhism for example, female nuns are given less status than male monks, and even in Sikhism, where religious offices are in theory equal for men and women, only a small minority of women take on important positions.
In the speech, “Equal Rights for Women,” Chisholm uses repetition and the pathos appeal to convince us that she is correct and that women should be treated as equal as men. Repetition is used in this speech specifically to inform everyone that women should have the same rights as men do. “Women need no protection that men do not need. What we need are laws to protect working people, to guarantee them fair pay, safe working conditions, protection against sickness and layoffs, and provision for dignified, comfortable retirement. Men and women need these things equally.
To followers of Monotheistic Religion, and various others, this Superior Being is best recognized as God. In order to better understand this highly worshipped Being, humans have seemed to historically associate attributes of God with those of Man and conversely. Many of the religions that hold the belief in an All-Powerful, designate descriptions to God that are typically synonymous with all righteous definitions such as, All-Mighty, The Light and for the purpose of the discourse, the Jesuit concept of Heavenly Father. This approach emphasizes that God has historically and dominantly been more “man-like” then anything or anyone else, including the counterpart that is the woman. Supported by the following excerpt of a literature piece by feminist theologian Rosemary Radford Reuther, is the thesis set forth.
1. INTRODUCTION Feminism foresees a genderless area where women should be perceived as equal to males. Femininity has been socially crafted due to the idea that men are perceived superior above women. Open-minded feminism quarrels that gender contrasts are not established in biology hence on the society’s comprehension of gender. Women and men are not disparate as they are both able to envision therefore no variation of gender ought to be imposed.
