Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

Is the push to ordain women a big problem in conservative churches? — Carl Trueman’s perspective

Carl Trueman explains that in the conservative Presbyterian world within which he operates the problem he faces is not people running around wanting to ordain a lot of women.  So, what is the problem?

This is an audio clip of Carl Trueman speaking on the Mortification of Spin podcast The Trinity Debate (start at 14:00 in the podcast).

    I would say, look at what is most likely to do harm to people, because that is what you should focus on if you have a choice. What is really hurting people, women who are harmed by men pushing this ideal, as Carl says, of women as ‘chattel’ or women as preachers?

  2. Carl Trueman says he sees a big problem with men who profess Christ using pornography and treating women as objects. What Trueman has observed is confirmed over and over again in the reports we hear from our readers at this blog.

    And it’s one of the things I pointed to in my table on The Biblical Middle between Equality, Authority and Differences.
