This has become quite an issue in the USA. The reason is that many scholars and others today cannot define it. What does the Bible say? In Genesis 1&2 God explains the creation of the universe. There is more emphasis on the only habitable planet and much more emphasis on God’s very special creation, man:
“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness….”’ Genesis 1:26a
Of the 56 verses about creation, more or less 14 have to do with man. There is special emphasis on the creation of the woman out of the man. God’s specific command to Adam and Eve were,
‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth…’ Genesis 1:28a
Man and woman as husband and wife will fill the earth with children. (Please note that not all couples have the privilege. We have to accept that, and no discrimination against them, especially from God.) Only women were created to bear children. However, because of the rejection of God, confusion has become ‘normal.’
Today in the modern world, the distinction between male and female is being obliterated. Young people can change to another gender. It is not natural but done by chemicals and operations. Natural is the unique way God equipped male and female to ‘create’ children in the image of God, the Creator.
That wonderful privilege from God is now abused. It is so bewildering one almost has to become a student of the English language to know what cisgender, transgender and the myriad other names and personal pronouns mean.
To reject God comes with a cost – confusion.
