in Ephesians 5:24, Greek manuscripts of the New Testament frame male authority or the submission of wives to husbands not as command, but rather as a description.
I’m convinced the church needs every adult, male or female, who is willing and qualified as teacher or church leader. This reawakens me to the urgency of “smashing categories”.
But Jesus Feminists are not called to be finger-pointers, accusers, or angry rabble-rousers. We are called to the “hard, unsexy work of setting things right slowly with little visible success.”
