Ws 420 christianity

  1. 1. Women and Christianity<br />Arose out of Judaism around the first century C.E. and is based on Jesus of Nazareth. <br />
  2. 2. Christianity<br />There are three main forms: <br />Catholic<br />Protestant<br />Orthodox<br />The Catholic and Orthodox forms are the most conservative towards women’s rights and participation, but there are many forms of Cathocolism and Orthodox Christianity. <br />There are many forms of Protestant Christianity that are far more liberal about the role of women than other forms.<br />
  3. 3. Christianity<br />The Bible uses masculine God-language where men are mostly represented in the stories that make up the bible. <br />There are many gender-segregated religious practices that are mostly seen in leadership. <br />The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (Mormons), conservative branches of the Anglican Church, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, and the Southern Baptists still do not allow the ordination of women. <br />
  4. 4. Christianity<br />Christian Feminists work to reexamine Christian texts and history in order to support the involvement of women in Christianity since its birth. <br />There are passages in the bible that support the inclusion and importance of women in the early days of Christianity. <br />Christian Feminist Theologians also work to reinterpret biblical literature to redefine Mary the mother of Jesus as well as the few other female figures of Christianity. <br />
