Petitioning the King

September 18, 2007

Women in Saudi Arabia demand the freedom to drive automobiles.

Without a male "legal guardian", women in Saudi Arabia presently cannot work, travel, see a doctor, or even drive a car.  For this reason, I applaud the courage of Saudi writer and human rights activist Wajeha al-Huwaider and 220 other brave souls who are petitioning King Abdullah to extend the right to drive to women. 

Women and men both were created in the image of God and are equal in value and dignity.  This governmental ban of female drivers creates an unbiblical distinction between the roles of men and women.  Our prayer should be for God to move the heart of the king (Proverbs 21:1) to grant the freedom to drive so all men and women can enjoy the common grace of travel.  Pursuing further opportunities for education and in the workplace are of little value to women without access to independent transportation.

This new curriculum is aimed at Christians who are facing challenging questions with the rise of LGBT ideology on topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, preferred pronouns, and more. The study is broken down into eight chapters that guide readers through the Bible’s teaching on gender, sexuality, and marriage. Male & Female He Created Them gives Christians with a biblical foundation that starts in Genesis 1 and 2 with God’s good design in making mankind male and female in His image.
