  1. Amen to what Pruitt said at 44:18, and I quote:

    You do not have to derive your complementarian theology from the inner trinitarian mysterious relationships between the Persons. All you need to have is Genesis 2 and Ephesians 5 and a couple of other texts to fully justify what we believe about the roles of husbands and wives and men and women within the church.

    So the analogy for how a husband should love his wife is not some supposed difference of authority between the Father and the Son. Paul gives us the analogy in Ephesians 5: “Love you wife as Christ loved the church.” Not “lead your wife as the Father leads the Son”—you’re not doing it right if you’re doing it that way!

    But Grudem has written, in years past, for CBMW, that if our complementarianism is not derived from the submission of the Son to the Father within the eternal Godhead, then it all falls apart.
    And I just don’t understand why he thinks that.
