Moore on the Leftward Drift of Evangelical Feminism

My friend Dr. Russell Moore has written a piece for gender-news.com about the leftward drift of the evangelical feminist movement. His essay focuses on the group Christians for Biblical Equality (CBE), and their feature of Molly Marshall in Mutuality magazine.

Molly Marshall is the president of Central Baptist Theological Seminary and an outspoken egalitarian advocate. She has often been criticized for holding views that are decidedly non-evangelical (see here for an example). Ironically, she formerly held a professorship at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where Moore is now the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Moore draws attention to the fact that “gender issues” in the church are not side-arguments about the meaning of a few proof-texts of the Bible. At the heart of the gender debate is an argument about God and the Gospel. For this reason alone, Moore’s article deserves your careful consideration.

The title of Moore’s article is “Evangelical Feminism Lurches Leftward: Is Molly Marshall an ‘Evangelical’ Feminist?”

    I would love to hear your view on the “gender issues” in the church. Would that be possible?

    From the comments Mr. Moore made when he came to Criswell concerning ‘Biblical masculinity’ (as he understands it), it is no surprise that he would ‘jump’ on this particular issue.

    I am curious as to your view as well…
