Calvin’s Warning

Calvin, writing on the roles of men and women given in Scripture, writes the following:

“Therefore, with respect to external civil organization, the man is the image of God because Jesus Christ is his head. And then the woman is below him, such that she cannot say that she has an equal position, for that would constitute an arrogance which would overturn all order and civic policy.”

This is from his sermons on Genesis.
