A man and a woman are married before coming to faith in Christ. Once they become believers they begin to study Scripture and learn Christian theology. The husband becomes convinced of the truth of egalitarianism while the wife is convinced that complementarianism is true. What do they do?
It seems the complementarian wife is in an especially peculiar position. Does she submit to her husband by assuming an equal role in the relationship since his counsel according to his understanding of Scripture is for them both to be equal? Or does she attempt to instruct him in the truth as she understands if from Scripture even though she believes that she’s in no position to instruct a man?
It’s a conundrum.
