2013 Session 4: Throw The Baby Out …

Our session continues with our theme: the gifts of the Spirit. In this discussion, Dr. Nunnally emphasizes the equality of the sexes in Godly service. Included in the discussion is the following quote:

“How beautiful, then, the marriage of two Christians, two who are one in hope, one in desire, one in the way of life they follow, one in the religion they practice. They are as brother and sister, both servants of the same Master. Nothing divides them, either in flesh or in spirit. They are, in very truth, two in one flesh; and where there is but one flesh there is also but one spirit. They pray together, they worship together, they fast together; instructing one another, encouraging one another, strengthening one another. Side by side they visit God’s church and partake of God’s Banquet; side by side they face difficulties and persecution, share their consolations. They have no secrets from one another; they never shun each other’s company; they never bring sorrow to each other’s hearts.” 

(Tertullian of Carthage, Ad Uxorem II, 8, 7)
