Dr. Roger Nicole on Women in Ministry

Though I am not to be counted as a Calvinist, I have always enjoyed Dr. Nicole's passionate and gentle writings. He had this to say on this injustice:
"Having shared with six others the responsibility of drafting the original manifesto for Christians for Biblical Equality, I stand firmly committed to the same. I believe that most, if not all of the restrictions on women in society have no basis in Scripture; and that those maintained in the church are based on an inadequate interpretation of a few restrictive passages which put them in contradiction with the manifest special concern and love of God for women articulated from Genesis to Revelation. I do believe that in the eschaton all the redeemed will endorse biblical equality, since all of them will together constitute the bride of Christ."
Roger was not only a founding member of ETS and the council for Biblical Inerrancy, he was also a founding member of Christians for Biblical Equality
