Summary and Info
I placed an order for this book with Amazon.com one year ago. I have just started reading this book lately.
We(my wife and I)think Miller, who wrote a review below, has not understood the contexts of each chapters and the related verses thru out the Bible. Even if he want to delete 1 Cor. 14:33-35 and 1 Timothy 2:11-15 from the bible, the same complementarian view does still very exists. We don't have anythings to say to brothers and sisters who hold the egalit. view. But we only want to pray for them and hope God will open their minds and hearts and will restore their understandings to the truth revealed and ordained by Him. As the previous oppossed evolutionist's view in the past century, now it has been more and more acceptted that we must have more than faith to believe in the evolution!!! God has placed several or hundreds of false teachings to test Christianinty and Church tru out the past centuries. We have to stand firmly on God Word, not waved by and on any philosophy and culture that usually changes as time passes in this sinful world. All we need is Wisdom from above.
We can not understand why some people are holding the view of egalitarians. Everything in the bible all points to submission "hypotasso" and authority. We are equal as human beings especially as believers in Christ but at the same time we are obviously different from one another. Submission does not mean inferiority as some assume it to be. Submission is a special previledge as Christ Jesus to His Father. This is the absolute fact that everyone should appreciate. We are placed differently in roles and in variuos authorities in the real world. In the church Christ has placed someone in charge for taking care of His Body. All the biblical words and contexts point to Men to work as this office. We am very disappointed with egalit views that always insert too much of world wisdom that changed with time into God Word. We now start to pray for them for God to give them the divine wisdom from above. Egalitarians are destroying God's plans and wills by disobeying and violating His very Word.
In the end we don't want to talk too much but a second after you and us die, you and us will surely know the truth. We hope Christ will forgive you who are the egalitarians while living in this sinful world. There is one truth not two in this subject. We confidently choose to stand on the plain reading of 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and including others passages (like 1 Corinth 11, 1 corinth 14, Ephesus 5, 1 Peter 3 to name a few!!!). We think we have not been wavering by the false teachings introduced by someone who call themselve biblical scholars!!!
