"It’s easy to see how complementarian churches could be accused of mansplaining. Generally speaking, complementarians seek to obey the plain meaning of 1 Timothy 2:12, which forbids a woman from teaching a man in the context of congregational worship." - TGC
"...leaders like Jesus and Paul labored alongside women, affirmed their giftedness, and established structures that would maximize their contribution to the gospel’s effectiveness in the church and out into the world." - TGC
"people often confuse what the doctrine is with other associations that have little or nothing to do with the teaching. In short, folks confuse the essence with the accidents. . . . You may bite into an apple that happens to have a worm in it, but you would be painfully mistaken if you were to conclude that worms are part of the essence of an apple." - CBMW
Kristin Du Mez and Beth Allison Barr's books have created a four-alarm firestorm among certain Christian theologians. 9Marks and CBMW have devoted considerable time to explaining why their books on (respectively) masculinity and gender roles in Christianity are allegedly "dangerous." This is alarmist nonsense.
"...the view makes two claims: First, that men and women are equal image bearers worthy of equal honor and value; second, that men and women hold different roles, with men exercising a 'headship' that corresponds to a particular kind of authority in the church and the home. But while the word complementarian has traceable roots...its beliefs work out differently across church traditions." - C.Today
