Women subjection is part of the curse that is removed in salvation

by Matt Slick

This objection was already addressed in the article, The Genesis statement of Adam ruling over Eve, is not God's perfect will; but, I will expand on it here.

Genesis 3:16 says,

"To the woman He said, 'I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth.  In pain you shall bring forth children.  Yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

If the curse of the husband ruling over the wife is removed in salvation, then the curse of childbirth pain should also be removed.  The simple fact is that they do still have pain--Christian women included.  Therefore, this is proof that the curse is not removed.

For egalitarians to actually raise the objection is so utterly ridiculous that one must wonder what other common sense they must ignore in order to justify their position.
