Equal, but women should rule!

women-rule-humorous-t-shirt_designYou are all familiar with selective complementarian Bible reading. If, some day, you are in the mood for poking light fun at them, here is a few text to use for construing a Bible presentation whereby women and men are equal, but men really should accept they are here to complement women as the ones with the wisdom to be teachers and authority figures:

Satan is male – Satan is described as “he” throughout the Bible.

Sin entered the world through Adam: Romans 5:12,14

God denies being male, and connects maleness to dishonesty: Num 23:19

The words of a woman should carry more weight: The woman’s testimony taken as 100% true in all alleged rape cases where no member of the public would have heard them. Deut 22:25-26

Abraham, the father of the believers, was told to listen to his wife, in all she said: Gen 21:12

Wisdom is female: Pro 1:20; 9:1

Women who proclaim God’s word are a mighty throng : Psalm 68:11 (Note: Some old translations leave out that these were women.)

Here is my main attempt of that nature. (The above texts were compiled after that attempt.)
