Al Mohler needs an Eve

http://www.abpnews.com/content/view/6666/53/

Al Mohler and other restrictionists have to have a real Adam. Without a real Adam, how else could he have Eve? If there were no Eve, then their little world of male headship and male supremacy would come tumbling down.
Everything hinges on Eve eatin’ that apple.
“But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being quite deceived, fell into transgression.” (1 Timothy 2:12-14)
See, it is right there. Eve did it, and then Adam did it. Eve had argued with Satan, and quoted God’s words to Satan. BUT – Adam took one look and partook.
Now we know that in the beginning, God created male and female, and he created them equal. The Baptist Faith and Message 2000 (Dr. Mohler’s and the Southern Baptist Convention’s statement of faith) confirms that. They don’t stop there; they go on with their EQUAL-BUTs.
1. Eve was created equal – but she was created second, after Adam
2. Eve was created equal – but she was created from Adam
3. Eve was created equal – but Adam was given leadership over her because he was privileged to give her a name
4. Eve was created equal – but she gave in to temptation
5. Eve was created equal – but she became a temptress to her husband
6. Eve was created equal – but she needed a leader (“Adam! Where are you?” “I’ve invented a game, Lord. Its called Hide and seek.”)
7. Eve was created equal – but she was destined to have pain in childbirth, and thus could raise children, but not a church (wait, I think I am confabulating here!)
8. Eve was created equal – but she caused so many problems in Eden that they both got thrown out.
But what about Jesus? He came in and turned the world upside down! He was hung on a cross for my sins and for Dr. Mohler’s sins and for the sins of other restrictionists (complementarians). If Jesus could be the way to God now, he could certainly be the way for women to be redeemed from the taint of Eve.
Just why did God seek to redeem mankind to Him? Was it so they could continue as before? Or was it because God saw their love for the rules they made, and their exclusion of those who were not Jews, and the way they treated one-half of the human race? Perhaps that is why humans need the redemptive blood of Christ.
