Gender Neutral?

I will be the first to admit that I am totally confused in regard to this “gender identity/neutrality” phenomenon. Where in this socio-political fog did our children get the right to choose which sex they wanted to be identified? I thought that we have a Creator that has makes that choice for us? Psalm 139:13. Years ago our schools attempted to feminize our boys; making boys put on dresses. I cannot wrap my mind around the idea of trying to

When God created mankind, He created them equal but different. The difference does not mean one is superior to the other. God created them differently on purpose with a different purpose for them to fulfill. “Transgender” refers to people having an emotional problem, not really a sexual one. The “transgendered” label reflects a sexual identity confusion and not a true condition. God doesn’t create a person with male anatomy and the consciousness and the heart of a female. In Genesis 1:26, the Bible says, “And God created man in His image, in His likeness; male and female He created them . . . . and it was very good.” 1 Corinthians 14:33 states, God is not a God of confusion but a God of peace…”

Maleness and femaleness are God’s choice, determined at conception. But growing into one’s masculinity or femininity and embracing it can be hindered by very early events that prevent children from having a clear sense of their gender. Gender identity is a developmental issue, and it starts at birth.

The biblical view is that God’s intent for every male is to grow into masculinity, and for every female to grow into femininity. When that doesn’t happen, the culture has come up with new labels to describe something new and different: transgendered, transsexual. It’s only recently that the culture has tried to suggest that “a woman in a man’s body” and vice versa is a variation of what is normal and right.

All sexual behavior is to be contained within the boundary of marriage. Men are to act and appear as men, and women are to act and appear as women Deut. 22:55. I realize this is a very politically incorrect perspective in a sex-saturated culture that declares sexual expression is a right for everyone.

Gender Neutral?

There is no question that we live in a mixed-up, confused world. When people share their views and values that are not “politically correct”; they are labeleld as bring intolerate or racist or out of touch with today’s world.

This may sound over simplistic but if you look back on our culture, when America turned her back on Judeo-Christian morality; our society began to unravel. God made it simple; He created us male and female. There was no confusion on which gender you were. But when God is removed from almost facet of our society, there is no place to anchor our morality. Everyone sets their own standard of of right and wrong. 

The Prophet Isaiah said, “It is bad for those who call what is sinful good, and good sinful, who say dark is light and light is dark, who make bitter sweet and sweet bitter.” Isaiah 5:20

When people reject their gender; they are actually rejecting the God that created them. God did not make a mistake when He created you. You are exactly who you are supposed to be!
