I was paying a visit to Adrian Warnock’s excellent blog today and read a post called “Theology is for Women Too.” Adrian is a complementarian in his views on women in ministry which, in part, means that women are not allowed to teach men. Therefore, I raised an eyebrow at Adrian’s post on the new book by blogger Wendy Alsup called Practical Theology for Women. In his post, he shares the following,
“I just recently discovered Wendy Alsup’s blog. I was so impressed with the blog, I decided to issue her an instant Warnie award, the second so far this week. I must be feeling generous as I haven’t issued many Warnie’s lately! From now on her headlines can be found in my sidebar, along with many other top Christian blogs.”
For those not in the know, a Warnie is his award for blogs. Kind of like a Dundie for those of you who watch The Office.
So here’s my question… Did Adrian just violate his own rule that women should not teach men by reading a female theology blog?
I’m not trying to be critical or to be a smart guy. I’m just asking an honest question. If you believe women should not teach men the Bible, why make exceptions for a blog?
In my humble little opinion, I think this goes to prove that egalitarianism is the way to go.
