Principles (know them):

The Bible attributes “gender wars” and the oppression of all people (especially women) to the effects of sin. (see Genesis 3)

The Bible affirms the significance and value of Women (see John 4, 8, & 20)

The Bible tells us that women are equal to, but not the same as, men. (see Isaiah 66:13; Isaiah 49:15; Deuteronomy 32:11; Luke 15:8-10; Psalm 22:9-10, Psalm 71:6, Isaiah 66:9; Hosea 13:8; Luke 13:34)

The Gospel is the only full and final resolution to sin and the only thing that reconciles us to God and each other. (see Galatians 3:26-28)
