Daniel Rogers #7 There is Neither Male nor Female

Paul said, in a discussion of inheritance under the New Covenant, that there is neither male nor female. If there is no male nor female in Christ, then there cannot be marriage in Christ. This, however, does not mean that you cannot be married under the New Covenant or that there are not certain restrictions that we must live by in terms of our marriage. It also does not mean that you have to check “undecided” on a question about your biological sex! There is no marriage and giving in marriage under the New Covenant because this would exclude those like Paul and the Ethiopian Eunuch to receive inheritance in the world above.

  1. There is no such thing as “old and new” law. Paul speaks of 7 different laws in his writings which the misinformed umbrella as “old law”, and when you understand this you’ll see that christians are supposed to be circumcised, observe sabbath, stone to death blasphemers etc, and basically ceased to exist after 70AD.

    Moses (Not God speaking) in Deuteronomy allowed men to divorce their wives if they were disobedient to God, and Jesus basically said since you are all disobedient this doesn’t apply, Jesus did not change the law.

    1. To be specific, when Paul writes “The Law”, he means one of the following 7.

      1. The law of sin
      2. The law of sin and death
      3. The law of righteousness
      4. The law of faith
      5. God’s Law
      6. Christ’s Law
      7. The law of the spirit of life

      So which of these was nailed to the cross?

  2. The declaration from Paul that there is no male or female in Christ might be profitably considered in terms of his baptismal faith. “In Christ”, or literally under the water of baptism, soaked, immersed, saturated etc is the same experience for both sexes. Since male and female count for worship in the assemble for Paul, it might mean that the genders which God created to house his Image in the beginning retain their eschatological value to the end; and in such case marriage may be a “Holy Ordinance” which obtains in the confines of ones lifetime even as it empties into the nuptial feast of heaven in the nearer presence of God to come.

  3. If Chrisitians today look to inherit then the prophesy of inheritance has not been fulfilled.

    Christians today look to inherit (for you said we are not to disregard what the Bible teaches). Inheritance ceases to be an inheritance when one takes posession of that which has been completely given.

    By your own inference, Christians are still seeking to inherit, thus all has yet to be fufilled.

    1. Hey, Kyle. Thanks for stopping by.

      This verse, as I’m sure you know, is used to support women preachers, so it is no wonder that you clicked on it. Nevertheless, I appreciate you watching it, and I hope that despite our differences you gained something from it.

      It’s been a year since I have watched this video, but the inheritance spoken of in Galatians is that in relation to the promises made to Abraham that were fulfilled through his Seed. In Galatians 4, the time of this inheritance is plainly laid out: when the bondwomen and her son would be cast out (Galatians 4:21-31). This is stated as well in Matthew 8:10-12 and Matthew 21:43. The time when Abraham would sit in the kingdom would be the time when the children of the kingdom would be cast out.

      Either the inheritance is here, or the Jews are still in possession of the kingdom and have yet to be cast out.

      Furthermore, in Micah 7:15ff, he sees a time when miracles would be shown for forty years. This would be the time when iniquities would be forgiven (v. 19) and when the promises would be fulfilled that were made to the fathers (v. 20). Again, either we are still seeing miracles today (which is outside of the 40 year period) or Abraham has received the promises made to him.

      Therefore, to say that we have yet to receive the inheritance necessitates that the bondwoman hasn’t been cast out and there is still a miraculous seal of the Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Corinthians 5:5; Ephesians 4:30).
