Obey Your Confession

I have argued before that liberals are sometimes more to be trusted with what Scripture actually says than are evangelicals. Because of the inerrancy thing, evangelicals are stuck with the results of their exegesis. Liberals can say Paul required women to refrain from teaching men, and that the husband is the head of the wife, ho, ho, ho, but the evangelical has to put on a magic hat that turns kephale into something more acceptable to the Academy, something like “trusted advisor.” Frankly, it would be better if we evangelicals quit putting on the magic respectability hat and started putting on our big boy pants.
