The Problem with Egalitarianism

I’ve long been an advocate of the full participation of women in ministry and service within the church. Sometimes this position is described as Evangelical Egalitarianism. “Egalitarian” is a term loaded with unintended political baggage. For the most part I’ve considered the problems with the language to be just that, a problem in communication. David Fitch, professor at Northern Seminary, suggests some problems within Christian egalitarianism that are more than merely semantic.
