The Complementarity of Man and Woman

God created us in his image AS MALE AND FEMALE, that implies equality of personhood, equality of dignity, mutual respect, harmony, complementarity, and a unified destiny.

Complementarity means that the music of our relationships should not be merely the sound of singing in unison. It should be the integrated sound of soprano and bass, alto and tenor. It means that the differences of male and female will be respected and affirmed and valued. It means that male and female will not try to duplicate each other, but will highlight in each other the unique qualities that make for mutual enrichment.

So in creating human beings as male and female in His image, God had something wonderful in mind. He still has it in mind. And in Jesus Christ He means to redeem this vision from the ravages of sin.
