The Christian Post: Pastor's Wife: 'Helper' Is a Position of Strength, Not Inferiority
SAN DIEGO, November 5, 2012 — Renewal Ministries Executive Vice President Jani Ortlund urged wives at the Defined by God conference not to begrudge their biblical role as a helper to their husbands.
The title of helper is first bestowed to Eve in Genesis 2:18, which reads "The Lord God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.'"
While some shun the term as one of inferiority and weakness, Ortlund revealed that the "helper" title actually denotes power.
