God did not name humanity "MANKIND"

   The NIV translation, one of the most popular versions, today, fabricates in its translation of Genesis 5:2, where it says God named his human creation "mankind." The ESV does the same where it falsely translates that God named his human creation "man."
   He did not.
   The Hebrew is clear on the name God bestowed on both his male and female creation, and there is no hermenuetical reason for the translation of this verse as we read it in these versions. God did not favor Iysh (the male human) by calling both Iysh and Ishshaw (the female human), by the name of the male, Iysh.
   Instead, God named them both, 'âdâm (pronounced audawm).
   Now, why, other than misogyny, would the translators of the NIV and ESV mislead their readers on this clear statement of equality embedded in humanity's very name?
   The book of Genesis distinguishes between male and female using the Hebrew words Iysh and Ishshaw, but the name bestowed equally on Iysh and Ishshaw, (all men and women) by the creator, YHWH ELOHIYM, himself, is, 'âdâm

ComplementARIANISM Degrades Jesus

     The wrong done to our Creator and Savior in the name of male supremacy is the pinnacle of wrongs perpetrated by complementarians. Their eternal subordinate son doctrine is pure heresy. Of course it is not original heresy. It is nothing more than regurgitated Arian hogwash, which, historically, has been unanimously rejected by reputable scholars.

1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one Theos the Father of whom are all things and we for him and one Lord Jesus Christ by whom are all things and we by him[1]

[1] Complementarian (male headship) theology teaches a hierarchal triad of gods, in which Jesus [allegedly the eternal son] is under eternal subjection to the eternal Father. They do this because they believe it shores up otherwise flimsy theology concerning the eternal subjugation of women to men. This heretical teaching ignores the fact that it is Jesus Himself who is the Eternal Father and does violence to the eternal Godhead, which is ONE Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor The mighty God The everlasting Father. Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel and his redeemer the LORD of hosts I am the first and I am the last and beside me there is no God.

 Trinity Marriage and the Godhead, examines and refutes the theory of hierarchy within the Eternal Godhead. Charles Stanley stated that if there is no hierarchy within the Godhead, then there is no scriptural basis for the complementarian doctrine of female submission to male authority.

Chloe: Female Head of House

For it has been declared to me of you my brethren by them which are of the house of Chloe[1] that there are contentions among you 
1 Corinthians 1:11

[1] Early Church Christian liberty reached its zenith during the days of Paul. Here we see the apostle referencing a woman—Chloe—as head of house. Even had she been unmarried, it would have been unusual for a woman to be independent, much less be called the head of house, but Paul acknowledged her as such. The Jews or Greeks would likely not have done so. Jewish Law allowed for women to live independently. But it was not a common practice. In the Greek culture, women were under guardianship their entire lives and were passed from one kyrios (lord) to another (Father, husband, brother, etc..).
