Two Views

by Terry Wane Benton The Biblical View God created us and gets to make the rules. He made two genders: male and female and expects us to act like men if we are men and women if we are women. God does not approve of us changing the natural genders and gender roles as it…

Male and Female

by Andy Diestelkamp Male and female are not defined by the cultures and generations in which we grew up. They are not defined by the present culture. They are not defined by the cultures in which Abraham, Moses, or David lived. They are not defined by the ancient nations of Israel, Greece, or Rome. They…

Old Tricks From Satan’s Playbook

by Austin Hausner “Is there a thing of which it is said, ‘See, this is new’? It has been already in the ages before us” (Ecclesiastes 1:10). Solomon reminds us that there is nothing new. This is important to remember because many things that people say are new are actually the same old tricks repackaged…

Our Roles Are Not Shameful

by Jarrod M. Jacobs God created man and woman (Genesis 2:7, 18-25; Matthew 19:4). He also made them to fulfill specific roles on this earth.

Two Genders

by Terry Wane Benton Male and female made He them (Genesis 1-2). God said it and did it. That settles it. There is no third and fourth gender option. I was not able to “decide my gender.” That was fixed at the moment of conception. I operate under the fact of my gender assigned by…

Does Galatians 3:28 support gender diversity?

Question: Hi Mr. Hamilton, I’ve found out that a large number (possibly a majority) of my friends are LGBTQQIAA+. Some are genderqueer, transgender, gay, lesbian, pansexual, and asexual. A very large percentage of my year group is not straight or cisgender. I know that having homosexual sex is wrong. Should I rethink my friendship with…

Since the Y-chromosome doesn’t activate until the fifth week, does this mean everyone starts out as female and that the first human could not be a male?

Question: There’s this meme going around that some people are trying to use against Creationism. It says, “All humans begin as female.
