Did Jesus Christ Support Equal Rights of Everyone?

No, Jesus Christ fundamentally opposed equal rights of all persons, as the Gospels in the New Testament clearly shows.

When Jesus Christ talked with Samaritans, he emphasized their inferior social status and never tried to tell them that they are equal to the Jews.

When Jesus Christ talked with Gentiles, Jesus Christ clearly emphasized their inferior social status and never tried to emphasize equal rights.

Jesus Christ never taught His disciples to accept the idea of equality or equal rights, when Roman Democracy emphasized the concept of equal rights.

Jesus Christ fundamentally reqjected the idea of equality and equal rights that was valued in the democracies of His time.

Jesus Christ taught a Gospel that rejected equality of all people, and that is the way Jesus Christ wanted Christianity to be.

Should divorced women be allowed leadership positions in church?

One thing is very clear in the New Testament.

Jesus Christ illegalized divorce.

Not only that, Jesus Christ calls every divorced woman who remarries as being adulteress.  Living in perpetual adultery.

This is reinforced by St. Paul.  Christ prohibited divorce.  Divorced women who remarry enter into a state of adultery.

This is the very Word of God.

Since divorced women who remarry are in a state of adultery, should such women be allowed leadership positions in church?

No divorced woman in the New Testament held a position of leadership in church.  There were a lot of women who committed divorce at the time of Jesus Christ.

The Christian church has held the Biblical position on divorce for 2,000 years.

Today, Bible-centered Baptist churches, Presbyterian churches, charasmatic churches, and other Christian denominations prohibit divorced women from serving in leadership positions in churches and Christian organizations, in obedience to the very commandment of Jesus Christ.

The answer to your question is, “No.”

Divorced women should not serve as leaders in churches.

They should repent for their crime against God, and live the rest of their lives in contemplation of their crime against God and seek to aid in the building up of Christ’s body through silent prayer and financial support of truly Bible-centered Christian ministries.

The New Testament is there to follow and not to ignore.  Divorced women must humble themselves from the sight of the LORD.
