There was an editorial in the New York Times on Sunday that is a virtual case-study of the gender confusion that pervades our culture. Dr. Albert Mohler has an insightful riposte that is worth the read. He writes:
“The world we know is a world increasingly in revolt against the idea that gender is assigned by our Creator and is thus a fixed category. . .
“The Christian worldview is clear at this point.Â The Bible presents gender as part of the goodness of creation.Â God reveals his glory in every aspect of creation, and this is abundantly true with respect to the two sexes.Â God glorifies himself in creating humanity in his own image, both male and female.Â To deny or confuse this distinction is to deny God the glory that is his due.Â And, that which brings God’s greatest glory will also bring us greatest joy.
“The distinction between male and female survives even after the Fall.Â We should thank God for this gift and lean into it, preserving and honoring this distinction as necessary for understanding what it means to be human.”
