Infralapsarianism
The Man Created for the Woman
by Renat Ilyasov
Infralapsarianism

"For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man". 1 Cor. 11:8-9

    In infralapsarianism, the man (Christ) is created for the woman (church); not woman for the man.

    One of the problems with infralapsarianism is that the Man (Christ) is made for the Woman (Church) and not visa versa (as it is in the Bible) and that only in light of the woman's failure to live by her works obedience. 

    Christ is not the first thought in infralapsarianism, but appears on the scene only subsequent to the fall in the logical order of decreetal decisions.  

    But Christ is Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last (Rev. 1:11;21:6;22:14). All things were created FOR Him (Col. 1:6). 

    He is before all things. And Christ's preeminence and election to be the Head of His church logically precedes the decree to create all things and to permit / ordain the fall.
