Where Egalitarianism arrives

Missionary Donna Carlaw wrote this in a post on the Yahoo Theology List:
When Christ is reduced to a relationship of mutual submission with
His church, then we are talking about a different Christ, a false
Christ, a Christ that is not the One of the Bible.


Donna C, in those few words you have so succinctly shown the error of evangelical feminism.

Every Christian must believe that human marriage is a picture of the relationship of the true marriage of Christ and the church.

Yet if we take the mutual submission view, this is where it must lead.
Rather, Ephesians 5:21-33 shows us how we are to submit, and to whom it is appropriate for Christians to submit.

Of course, Ephesians 5 also shows what a humble, gentle leader a husband must be, if he is to even remotely reflect Christ.
