Big Ol’ Caveat

So I’ve been thinking about the previous post and I think it needs clarification. Because actually, obviously, I do believe that we are equal in our souls before God– he shows no partiality. And we are told that in Christ there is no Jew or Greek, no male or female, no slave or free. And the idea of a caste system where your “place in the world” has anything to do with your virtue or favor in God’s sight is deeply alien to Christianity, I think– unless you want to talk about what’s been called God’s “preferential option” for the poor and powerless. Our God is a God who champions the underdog– not because He doesn’t love the overdog, so to speak, but because the underdog needs it, among other reasons.

So what’s left of CS Lewis’ quote and my previous post? Well, read the third link, the one to Mere Comments, in that post. That explains it better than I seem to be able to, partially because I have as yet had no coffee, and it’s already almost 11:15 in the morning. It has to do with what mutual submission actually looks like. No, I don’t think I’m going to be getting any more coherent than that at the moment. Maybe later.
