Series: Understanding the Complementarian Position

Event: 2012 EFCA Theology Conference


The panel addresses these questions: How do you understand the biblical teaching of the headship relationship (i.e. equality in essence and dignity and distinction in roles) in the home? How is this lived out between husband and wife? What about parents and children? How specific is this to be applied across families, viz. is it all going to look the same in its application in various families? What do you affirm are the essentials of this teaching, and what would you consider to be non-essentials? As leaders how do we best help others to determine how they ought to live out the essentials and non-essentials in their own homes, and how do you communicate and live this without becoming legalistic?
