Why is egalitarianism so dangerous and destructive? It minimizes and/or make irrelevant a key distinction in who we are. At the heart of egalitarianism is a discontentment with how God designed gender into the very essence of our being.
Why is Gender important? 1) It reflects the image of God us.
2) It reflects the gospel. We see this in the God-ordained roles for men and women. The role of headship in the home is given to men so that by thier authority, the righteous, holy and benevolent authority of Christ might be seen. For women, the role of submission is given so that they might teach by example the very submission that is necessary in order to come to Christ.
3)It prepares us for receiving and living by the gospel.
