Should Christian Women Watch Bridgerton?

While Bridgerton may be a popular and visually stunning period drama, there are several reasons why Christian women may choose to abstain from watching it. 

Does God Love Everyone Equally?

Lisa Bevere poses a question in the following video that has doubtless been on the minds of many believers. She asked, “Does God love everyone equally?” Bevere recalls how she was battling jetlag and lying down to take a nap one day when the thought came to her: The Holy Spirit said, “I do not love my children equally.”

Bevere explains she was dumbfounded by the statement. Surely God loves us all the same. Surely he couldn’t do something like play favorites. But the Holy Spirit went on to explain, “Same would mean one of you are replaceable…I don’t love my children equally. I love them uniquely.”

And, we keep asking — does God love everyone equally or uniquely?

The word “unique” caught Bevere’s attention, so she looked up the definition: “Sole representative of.” Meaning, you are the only one who represents God the way you represent God. However, the third tier of the definition was her favorite: Without rival.

“There is no rival for your place in God’s heart. There is no rival for your place in this world.”

Bevere goes on to pinpoint a problem with rivalry we have in the church. According to her, this problem is costing us our effectiveness. “Rivalry is robbing the body of Christ of the strength that is on you, because you’re too busy comparing and contrasting with other people when God has an identity and a call without rival on your life.”
