We live in a day and age when increasing numbers of people (particularly this next generation) have rejected God’s Word as the foundation for morality and instead are doing “
whatever is right in their own eyes” (Judges 21:25). As I’ve noted numerous times before, this is increasingly being seen in the area of gender. Instead of accepting the God-given boundaries of gender as male and female, much of society has completely redefined gender and has changed gender into “
whatever is right in their own eyes” (Judges 21:25).
But should we reconsider gender boundaries? Well, gender is not a man-made construct that can change with culture. Gender is a God-given distinction from the very beginning. Genesis 1:27 says, “
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” In Genesis there is a clear distinction made between male and female in God’s original creation. Why are we male and female? Because God created us that way from the very beginning! It’s God’s design—and our bodies were made to glorify Him and be His temple (1 Corinthians 6:19)—so we aren’t at liberty to change it because we want to.
