Hierarchy and Gender

The Salvation Army ranks their ordained workers with military ranks.

My great great grandparents were officers in the Salvation Army in the 19th century. But my great great grandmother was a Captain and my great great grandfather was a lieutenant.

This is one of the reasons why I find it difficult when people make claims about evangelical egalitarians being rooted in the feminist movement of the 20th century.

Anyway, I’ll get back to studying Greek now.
