There seems to be a growing media attention toward those who are gender neutral or gender confused. While on the treadmill the other day, the TV in front of me had the Ellen Show on and I was intrigued with the captioning I was reading. The person being interviewed desired to be considered gender neutral.
From a Biblical perspective, there is no neutral. God created them male and female. However, I feel we don’t fully understand the effects of the Fall. When sin and evil entered, there was more than just a problem with Adam and Eve. The whole universe “fell” into an evil situation. With that said, we are now faced with further consequences of this and each generation progresses.
Today we wake up to a world of desired neutrality where some want us to disregard genetics and focus on how we feel. We are called to be kind and loving in the name of Jesus, but we do not have to agree on this. May we share the truth IN LOVE as Paul told the Ephesians. There is no room for hate in this arena, but the design was to be male or female based on body mechanics. A desire to be someone or something else is a result of the fallen nature of humanity that only Jesus can remedy.
