All exam boards: Christianity options
In my previous article for RELIGIOUS STUDIES REVIEW (Vol. 14, No. 2, pp. 26–29), I commented that, inasmuch as Christians pay heed to what the Bible says or the church teaches, they act heteronomously (from the Greek ‘other law’). This heteronomy stems from the fact that Christianity is a ‘historical’ religion: Christians believe that truth was revealed in history in Jesus Christ. In this article, I shall consider a further consequence of the fact that Christianity (and the other Abraham religions) are ‘historical’ religions: they cannot avoid sexism.
