Recommended: DeYoung’s 9Marks of Complementarianism

Over on Patheos, Scot McKnight engages with Kevin DeYoung’s recent post on complementarianism on The Gospel Coalition. McKnight raises some really good questions and pushes DeYoung on some points. For one, DeYoung says that 1 Timothy 2 is clear. What he means is that his interpretation is “clear.” With so many respected scholars and serious Christians who hold differing interpretations of 1 Timothy 2 of which they arrived after careful study demonstrates that the text isn’t as clear as DeYoung would have us to believe. DeYoung also says that he doesn’t favor women reading the sermon text, but just because a church allows a woman to read the text (supposedly in a Sunday worship service) doesn’t mean the church is “automatically wed to the spirit of the age.” This statement implies that those who are not complementarian (or the complementarian he describes) is “wed to the spirit of the age.” I might venture my own response on this article later, but for now I recommend you reading Scot’s response.
