Jimothy here is at least honest. Some ultra-complementarians (like John Piper) admit there are pieces of scripture where women are praised for doing things that don’t reckon with their theological picture of gender roles/design. At the end the day, or the beginning rather, preachers have to preach something. And something that’s black and white is easier, even if it’s not faithful to the teaching in scripture and even if it subjects half their congregation to a limited existence.
Would I rather just keep it black and white even when it harms people?
Would the apostle Paul be labeled a liberal in my church for praising women who lead and teach?
