Default Re: Egalitarianism Vs. Complementarianism

My scriptural basis is the correct interpretation of the passages cited in the gotquestions article. It is confirmed to be a sound interpretation when considering what the biblehub commentators have to say. Most commentators say that the verse is prohibiting polygamy not celibacy. This puts your view at odds with the most reasonable and logical interpretation.

In short...if the elder is meant to be a husband and wife team or husband or wife then
1 Tim 3:1-7 would say 'they'...not 'he'.
