The Gender Issue Today

Recently, the Dallas Morning News (May 16, 2016) carried a front page article entitled “Decree Set on Toilets, Gender.” The subtitle reads “Feds will tell districts to allow students to choose bathroom based on their identity.” It is clear from this article that the Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping decree telling every public school district in the country to let transgender students use bathrooms that match their identity.” As might be expected, school officials differed on their responses to this brazen decree.

The President must have “forgotten” what the Bible says about God’s creative work. He created Adam and Eve in His own image, in the very image of God, male and female (Genesis 1:27, 28; see also Genesis 2:18-23 and Mark 10:7-9). There  is no hint anywhere in Scripture that God created transgender people. Male and female only came from His creative hand. Of course, if one believes in evolution rather than creationism, who knows the answer to the question, “How did we get here and where do we go when we die”?
