Somebody by the name of Peter C made this comment on Krishk. “Egalitarians take a modern political ideal – that of equality – and choose to worship it. Consequently they inevitably distort it and ironically end up abandoning it and, if applied within the church, God Himself.”
The title of the post was “Tim Keller women and ignoring your own rules.” After his comment, the post was closed to comments. But something has to be said in response to the ignorance Peter C expressed.
My response is very simple: Egalitarians do not claim or desire that women are better than men. Complementarians both claim and desire that men are superior to women. Which attitude is more like Jesus?
Jesus is our standard, and since Jesus did not commit women to husbands, or to males, and because Jesus did not deny women anything based on their being women, then we cannot in good stewardship of the gospel, do so either.
When “equal” is qualified in any way, women become unequal in whatever way a religion decides to define it.
Are you ready for equality? If not, why not?
