Churches use Gospel to address gender-based violence

Pastors from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of PNG (ELCPNG) and the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) Church have been attending CPP workshops in Jiwaka and Western Highlands provinces, to discuss the theological basis of gender equality.

They considered Bible passages taken from Genesis 1:27, “in which God created man and woman in his own image” and Galatians 3:28, which reminds Christians, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”.
