According to this official statement of the 2000 Southern Baptist Convention,  The Baptist Faith and Message, how should gender roles in family and church life be arranged, and why? In particular, analyze the statement that  [a] wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household and nurturing the next generation. How do these references to equality and hierarchy work together in this statement? Does it succeed in reconciling the SBC s interpretations of biblical teachings on marriage and church life with modern human rights standards? According to the articles, how do some Southern Baptist women and men reconcile (or fail to reconcile) their understandings of what their church teaches with their views on gender roles? Why do they attempt such a reconciliation? In your view, is such a reconciliation possible why or why not?
