New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The ordination of women uncouples this link between the order of the Holy Trinity and the order of the Christian congregation.  On the other hand, it is associated with the deconstruction of the Holy Trinity with the rejection of the Father's headship and the Son's subordination to the Father.  It involves the subsequent reconstruction of the Holy Trinity as an egalitarian community of interchangeable persons. -- Dr. John Kleinig, Women Pastors?, p. 223.

Ordination of women is a radical illustration of how our worship both demonstrates our theology, and causes our theology to change. Any church body or congregation ordaining women is not orthodox, despite any protestations otherwise.
