“The very first chapter of God’s revelation to us tells us that God intentionally made two sexes that are complementary. This wasn’t arbitrary; it was so we could fulfill His design for us to fill the earth with other people who would love and worship God.”
(Brian Seagraves – Stand To Reason) Recent studies indicate that only about 0.5% of the U.S. population identifies as transgender. Yet, every parent needs to be concerned about the effect transgenderism will have on their children. If the percentage of people who are transgender is so small, why do all parents need to be so concerned?
This issue (along with the full range of LGBT issues) will be a line in the sand for our children. Culture’s championing of sexual autonomy and self-identity will force everyone to choose where they will stand. You can stand with God and the authority of Scripture, or you can stand on the side of the sexual revolution. There is no middle ground.
In teaching classes and seminars, I have noticed that what the older generation rejects, and what the middle generation isn’t sure of, the youngest generation likely adopts. But adopting culture’s understanding of sex and gender requires jettisoning God’s revealed design.
