Diversity, Not Jesus, Saves Says Episcopal Presiding Bishop Schori
She concluded her sermon by stating that we are not justified by our faith but by our respect for diversity
Schori: Salvation comes not from being cleansed of our sins by the atoning sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, but through the divinization of humanity through the work of the human will. “We are here, among all the other creatures of God’s creation, to be transformed into the glory intended from the beginning.

Four Further Thoughts on the Complementarian Conversation
It seems to me the current conversation is mainly about two things: abuse and application.
Where have complementarian principles been abused? How are complementarian principles best applied? Those are fair questions.

The Justice Dept. is arguing that German law banning home schooling does not violate the family’s human rights.
