Gender Complementarian Christians Who Teach Gender Inequality Even in Afterlife – an UPDATE
Hat tip again to Julie Anne of the Spiritual Sounding Board who announced in a Tweet today that CBMW (which is a Christian gender complementarian group) removed a looney editorial by Walton from their site, which I wrote of in an earlier post, here:
(Link): Christian Gender Complementarian Group Teaching That There Will Be Marriage in Afterlife and That Women Must Submit To Males in Heaven
Julie Anne wrote an update about the situation recently, here (at Spiritual Sounding Board):
(Link): Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood Removes Article about Complementarian Roles in New Creation Did they change their minds?
- Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood removes Article about complementarian roles in new creation
… Let’s be clear – pulling the article does not mean CBMW has changed their ideology.
She also provided a link to the screen shot of the CBMW page, before it was removed, and it can be viewed here:

Someone in the thread linked to this related material, from the Strange Figures blog:
(Link): A letter to our sisters, on biblical womanhood in heavenly places
The piece starts out serious (as you can see from the excerpt below), and the author goes into satire (not excerpted here):
- I think the author, Mark David Walton, has shown us the end toward which complementarian theology is heading. While Walton’s piece is several years old, it’s still out there as a resource and other articles have expressed the same idea – the gendered headship/submission model is not temporal. It’s eternal. Get used to it, ladies.

Julie Anne also mentioned that Owen Strachan is the Executive Director of CBMW, and Rachel Held Evans recently took Strachan to the woodshed here:

I agree with point 3 on the list on this site (I do not, however, agree with the author that a literal understanding of the Bible should be rejected, or that the Bible supports homosexuality):
