I was reading an article yesterday about the efforts to gender neutralize all English textbooks. There are a variety of other efforts to remove the idea of gender distinctions from society. There’s only one problem with this. It doesn’t change what God has established in the people He created. “God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”(Genesis 1:27) And further, God “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”(Genesis 2:7) However you might take these images the truth is there. We were created by God as two distinct genders, and that distinction is marked, not just in the outward features of the body, but in the deepest part of each human being. We can do all that we care to do in changing language and appearance, but we cannot change the distinction that God stamped on our inner being. God knew what He was doing in the beginning and He is always right.
