The gender role debates between complementarians and egalitarians in the church show no signs of abating any time soon, and in protracted theological discussions (battles) like these, the tendency is to pull every other subject into its orbit—even the Trinity. Commenting on Larry Crab’s recent entry into the discussion, Fred Sanders argues over at Christianity Today that we should leave the doctrine of the Trinity alone in the gender debate as it can surely only result in speculation on both sides. Sounds good to me.
