During this past election, Christians lined up behind Sarah Palin – a woman – for high public office. They ridiculed those who invoked Scripture to point out this was unbiblical. It would have been one thing if the Christians supporting her simply admitted they knew it was unbiblical and contrary to Scripture for her to be in office, but the threat of an Obama presidency was so awful they felt compelled to vote for her anyway. But that wasn’t the case. They actually wanted to change 2000 years of biblical interpretation and declare that it was biblically right for her to be in public office.
Such thinking shows how far egalitarianism has invaded the thinking of Christians in America. Christians actually think the paradigm or model of the world for how women are to live and function is better than God’s model as revealed by Holy Scripture. Hence, Christians proved their allegiance is not to the Word of God first, but to political expediency.
