These who find themselves ‘in Christ’ are not ‘in’ the power arena that makes questions of equality necessary.


Equality is a concept or principle invoked in order to insist that individuals or groups

  • be treated uniformly,

  • that they have the same access to decision making,

  • that they have the same privilege of status.


All those who are ‘in Christ’, however, know that they all have only what has been granted them by the Spirit, and all have exactly the same standing in that God rescued all from ‘the present evil age.’


Yet what Paul declares is not simply

that God brings these privileges to an end, but that the pairs no longer exist.


Galatians 6:15: ‘there is neither circumcision nor uncircumcision but new creation.'”
