“The Spirit creates mutuality…

“When men seek to control women by silencing them permanently in church, we stand face-to-face with a contradiction of the very thing the new creation is designed to accomplish: to undo the fall.  What we see in this desire to silence women is the desire to rule over women, a desire that pertains to the fall, not to the new creation.  What the Spirit does when the Spirit is present is to release and liberate humans from their fallen condition so that God’s will can be completely done.  The Spirit creates mutuality.  Always.”

– Scot McKnight, The Blue Parakeet, p. 190.
