If submission must be intelligent, it cannot be unilateral; even the man must submit to the woman's refusal to obey when asked to sin. And if also the man must submit, servant leadership cannot describe unilateral authority; instead it must prescribe the exact same kind of attitude towards the woman as intelligent submission prescribes towards the man, i.e., both women and men must accept personal responsibility while they treat other people with the same consideration and respect they expect to receive in return. And since this is the biblical model, where does the idea that God gave the man unilateral authority over the woman come from?
The first part of "Genesis 3: The Origin of Gender Roles" was first published as "Intelligent Submission & Other Ways of Feminine Wisdom."
