They also agree that in 1 Timothy Paul says that women couldn’t teach men. The division comes with how these verses apply to the church today. Egalitarianism Those that believe that all church positions and ministry is equally open to both genders are called egalitarian. (Saucy 26) Alan G. Padgett, for the organization, Christians for Biblical Equality (CBE), defines Biblical equality as, “All have equal responsibility to use their gifts and obey their calling to the glory of God. God freely calls believers to roles and ministries without regard to class, gender, or race.” (22) They would see the verses about women being submissive and not being able to teach as not not applying to the church today.

Written when much (but not all) of post-Enlightenment Scotland had taken an anti-clerical, anti-religious stance, these novels explore the faith of the previous generation and how fundamentalist Presbyterianism may have gone horribly wrong. The protagonists of each book react in completely opposite ways to their sinful acts; Lockhart’s eponymous character has a nearly legalistic view of his own sin, while Hogg’s Robert Wringhim follows a more antinomian path. Oddly enough, it is the former who ends up redeemed and the other damned, but their respective journeys toward those ends follow much of the same path.
