If women are “equals” with a man spiritually, then what biblical spiritual restrictions are there on men? When does a man who is a godly Christian man go from servant of God to sinner just because of who walks into his bible class? The fallacy of “equal but different” is never so blatantly false as when complementarians like John Piper try to talk about the “ambiguities”. The fact is that they teach “unequal and different” while the Bible teaches “fellow heirs”.
I confess I love it when Cheryl Schatz ties complementarians up in knots. Sorry about that. Make sure you read the whole post as Cheryl is very nice about it and does not gloat as she demolishes John Piper.
