“Although I still cannot put myself 100% in the egalitarian camp, situations like this reinforce for me the fact that the egalitarian view makes the most sense biblically in so many ways,” says Sallie Borrink in her post “Doug Wilson, Jared Wilson, the Gospel Coalition, and the Logical Conclusions of Complementarianism.” Great post and you must read it.
I couldn’t help but wonder what percentage was remaining out of the less than 100% in the egalitarian camp. And I couldn’t help wondering what principle of the egalitarian camp she could not agree with. Her blog post lays it out clearly how the complementarians don’t have a clue as to what they really believe. So what is it about egalitarians that she can’t accept?
Wade Burleson, a great champion for women, gave this comment to her post as quoted above. “Excellent post! The comment above echoes my sentiments precisely! I would much rather be biblical than identified with any camp! Keep up the superb writing, Sallie! You are a blessing to many.” So what is it, Wade, about egalitarians that you can’t accept?
All we know for sure that complementarians believe is that women are EQUAL-BUT. That’s all. Only that. No more. They believe any and everything negative about women that they choose to believe.
Egalitarians, on the other hand, believe that women are EQUAL.
Equal means equal. We don’t have to qualify that. The Bible said it first.
Either you believe women are equal or you don’t. It’s like being pregnant. You either are or you’re not.
Red Rover, Red Rover, Send Sallie Borrink over.
Red Rover, Red Rover, send Wade Burleson over.
We’re glad for what you’ve done, but we can’t wait to see what you will do when you come to the egalitarian side.
