A Theology of the Body "Different by Design" A Theology of the Body
“Different by Design”
Gen. 2:18
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave[a] nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise. Gal. 3:28-29.

Egalitarianism = belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, social, or economic life.
Complementarianism = belief that men and women are equal yet different by divine design, and that God’s design makes a difference in how we ought to live as male and female.
Different in the Home (Eph. 5:22-25)

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. 25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, (Eph. 5:22-25).
That text echoed almost word for word in Col. 3, clearly states the husband has the role of headship in the family. He is to nurture his wife and lead his family lovingly, humbly, and sacrificially. The wife has the role of nurturing her children and intentionally, willingly submitting to her husband’s leadership. When both husband and wife are complementing each other in this way, Christ is honored. In fact, the marriage itself becomes what it was designed to be: a living picture of Christ and the church (v. 32).
8 For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. 9 Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man….. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; 12 for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God. (1 Cor.8-9, 11-12).
3 Older women…. They are to teach what is good, 4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. (Ti.2:3c-5).

In Work (Gen. 2:8)

22 Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, (Col.3:22-23)

In Love (Jo. 13:14-15,35)
In Health Care

7 Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; 8 for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come (1 Tim. 4:7b-8).

In Death (Phil. 1:20b-21)

Image Bearers

5 And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man. 6 “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed,
for God made man in his own image. (Gen. 9:5c-6).

HOW SHOULD CHRISTIAN PARENTS RELATE TO CHILDREN WHO DON’T FIT TYPICAL GENDER NORMS?
HOW SHOULD CHRISTIANS RESPOND TO THE REVOLUTION?

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. (Ro. 1:18-19).
Godly Anger The Servant of God
“Godly Anger”
Ma. 11:15-19
Anger Directed in Discipline (vv.15-16)
7 You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said: 8 “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 9 in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’” Matt. 15:7-9
Think about this, by clearing out the traders Jesus literally and symbolically provided a place for Gentiles in the temple of God, although reforming the temple was not the main thing. He really was not just cleansing or cleaning up the temple.
21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.. 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. (Jo. 4:21,23).
Anger Directed in Correction (v.17)
Anger Displayed in Jealousy (vv.18-19)
4 What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. 4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (Ja. 4:1-4).
21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. (Matt. 5:21-22).
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, 19 a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers. (Pro. 6:16-19).
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger Eph. 4:26
4 Facts about Godly Anger:

God/Jesus is angry for the right reasons- not petty arguments. No selfishness involved (Ro. 12:19).
God’s anger targets sinful behavior and true injustice (3:7; Pro. 24:11-12, Eph. 5).
God’s anger/wrath is perfectly controlled (meekness).
Jesus’ anger and response was always to accomplish God’s will.

19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Ja. 1:19-20

So, I won’t hesitate to tell you that an entire life here in physical blindness isn’t nearly as bad- as dangerous as being spiritually blind for a lifetime. Physical blindness may be difficult- spiritual blindness damns.
32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” (Lu. 1:32-33).
Obedience of Faith (vv.49-50)
Deliverance of Faith (vv.51-52)
The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; The LORD raises up those who are bowed down; The LORD loves the righteous; (Psa 146:8)
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; (Isa. 35:5)
“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, he would have sent an economist. If he had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, he would have sent us a comedian or an artist. If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, he would have sent us a politician. If he had perceived that our greatest need was health, he would have sent us a doctor. But he perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death; and he sent us a Savior.” - D.A. Carson -
The Blessed Calling of Motherhood “The Blessed Calling of Motherhood”
Luke 1:41-45
New Life (vv.41-44)
13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. (Psa. 139:13-16).
“Before I formed you in your mother’s womb I chose you. Before you were born I set you apart….” (Jer. 1:5)
Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control. (1 Tim. 2:15)

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also… 24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money (Matt. 6:21,24)
A Question of Sovereignty (v.27)
Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil. (Jer. 13:23)

A Question of Prosperity (vv.28-31)
44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field... 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. (Matt. 13:44-46).
11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matt. 5:11-12)
28 In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out. 29 And people will come from east and west, and from north and south, and recline at table in the kingdom of God. 30 And behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.” (Lu. 13:28-30).
The Reality of the Resurrection Resurrection Sunday- The Servant of God
“The Reality of the Resurrection”
Ma. 10:32-34
Was the Resurrection Predicted? (vv. 32-33)
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. (Heb. 1:1-2).
Is the Resurrection Real? (v.34)
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed… And they made his grave with the wicked
and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth…. he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors. (Isa. 53:5,9,12c-e).
3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. (1 Cor. 15:3-7).
For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. 26 And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, 27 whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. (Job 19:25-27b)
Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. 10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. (Psa. 16:9-10)
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God,4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (Rev. 21:3-4).
Does the Resurrection Matter? (1 Cor. 15)

The Resurrection provides the ground for your salvation
The Resurrection provides the power to live new life today

4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. (Ro. 6:4-5)

The Resurrection provides our hope for tomorrow

Ma. 10:17-22
A Question of Ethics (vv. 17-18)

26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple… 33 So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple. (Lu.14:26,33).
7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them… 22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. (Matt. 13:7,22)
9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. (1 Tim. 6:9-10).
