MALE and FEMALE He created them

“God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; MALE and FEMALE He created them” (Genesis 1:27).  “God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good” (1:31).  The NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC (January, 2017) takes issue with God by insisting there are more than two genders.  That people cannot figure out if they are male or female, or being one, prefers to be the other, is simply a result of mankind’s fall into sin (Genesis 3).  Sin has in many ways distorted God’s wonderful creation.  According to an article in WORLD MAGAZINE (April 15,2017), of those who seek to live out a different gender than that with which they were born, 30 percent have attempted suicide and another 40 percent reported self-injury.

Some say the growing rush to label children “transgender” promotes physician-approved child abuse.  It is comparable to agreeing with an anorexic child that he or she is fat.  Sensible parents, teachers, physicians, psychologists will seek to help a girl to “thank God for making me a female,” and a boy to “thank God for making me male.”   Come to Peace Lutheran Church to rejoice in the God who does not make mistakes.   Sunday service time is 9:00 a.m.
