Apparently there are 63 different genders and rising. If you’re confused, so am I. Imagine teaching this to students at school???? This gender philosophy is not about tolerance and acceptance is about changing the very fabric of how and why we were made.
I have great concern about the hidden agendas of minor political groups pushing gender theory, the gender neutral philosophies or gender spectrum.
The “SAFE SCHOOLS” programme that has been introduced in Victorian schools-Australia is deceiving, it’s not a programme against bullying, it was designed by transgenders to introduce the above theories.
When gender ideologies and being gender neutral is portrayed to children and teenagers who are still formulating their ideas , it can confuse their feelings and perceptions which can then manifest as psychological problems (see link to scientific paper below).
People are having gender reassignment surgery or taking hormones to block or change gender characteristics. There is a push now towards CHANGING YOUR GENDER BECAUSE OF HOW YOU FEEL. First of all, when God created male and female, He didn’t intend for it to be so open and complicated.
We are all created by God, in His image we are created. At birth, doctors and pediatricians determine whether you are a boy or a girl. I am not discounting that there may be gene mutations and on the odd occasion nature gets it wrong. I have listened to biophysicists speak about how the number of genes play a huge factor in determining gender and that anomalies can be rectified at birth with medical intervention.
Environments can influence how a person feels. Feelings change, this should not determine gender however. Here’s an analogy, for example, a man goes to his psychologist and expresses his fears. Ok! so they discuss it and try to resolve where this is coming from. On another day, the same man says that he feels like a girl. Ok, the psychologist suggests gender reassignment. On another day, the man says he feels like a chinese male, ok then we can reassign you with facial plastic surgery to a chinese transgender male. On yet another day he feels like an african, bisexual lion. Where will it end? Do you get my drift???????
As adults we have an obligation to present the purest ideas to children and only those that come from the true source-God Almighty, the intelligent designer, the creator of all things living and non-living, seen and unseen. Denying all this, does not mean that God is not at work or that God got it wrong.
Leaving it to people who have limited knowledge (comparing it to God) and biases which may affect people’s thinking away from the real truth, can be detrimental to the individual and society. If God had meant for us to be gender neutral and that our feelings determine who and what we are, Jesus would have addressed that in His teachings.
Below is a link to scientific evidence.
So, what do we do? We must offer genuine love to our gender dysphoric neighbor (Mark 12:30–31). But as Christians, we’re also required to confront new challenges with biblical truth. God made men and women unique and complementary (Gen. 1:27). God is love , His laws are there to protect us.
