Our current climate is marked by cultural confusion and a lack of Christian conviction—and this extends to the issue of women’s role in the church. Alistair Begg addresses this pressing concern, responding to scholarly criticism, the issue’s marginalization, and the temptation for the church to follow the culture. What’s ultimately at stake, he reminds us, is our belief in the Bible’s authority and inerrancy. To dismiss any passage as relative, unworthy, or wrong opens the door to questioning the whole of the Scriptures.
26Then God said, “Let us make man8 in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
19Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed6 every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
