Men and women are not equal.
A man cannot be a woman.
A woman cannot be a man.
Men and women are unique one from another and were created with specific strengths and weaknesses that together become one flesh.
Our uniqueness highlights our need for one another to fulfill the essence of God’s plan. (There is a caveat here, I will include it at the end.)
This was God’s design. Our world to a great degree, has been trying to erase this reality. No doubt scripture teaches gender uniqueness. This is further highlighted in a greater visible and biological reality; men and women are drastically different. From hormones, chromosomes, bones, structure, and every part of us that operates uniquely.
Often this sentiment has been expressed. A woman is so glad she is not a man.
A man is so glad he is not a woman.
However, we have reached a point where our culture is encouraging and introducing the insanity that one can change from one to another with the help of hormones, surgery, and clothing.
We, each, should celebrate and be thankful that God has made us just as we are, embrace this reality, and seek to glorify God in how he created us.
How crazy has this madness escalated? University-educated doctors are giving young teenage girls hysterectomies and castrating young boys. Further, they are flaying the flesh off the forearms of these young girls to create a male sexual member, mutilating and destroying their very humanity. The idea is that being a woman is simply a costume one can put on or put off and designate oneself as any and everything or nothing at all. There is an effort to do away with terms like mother and father. It’s absolute madness. How could “educated” people become so crazy insane to believe such a thing and harm children, rendering them freaks of nature that can never be fixed? To think such insanity can trace its roots to a seemingly innocuous statement, men and women are equal. Men and women are unique and special and can never be the same. Surgery cannot ever change chromosomes.
I believe the Wisdom found in the ancient book of Leviticus gives us a peak into express wisdom demonstrated in the scripture of God’s Holy Word.
“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the Lord thy God.” Deuteronomy 22:5 It also makes me appreciate our elders who did not let go of concepts of gender distinction and modesty that Christianity quickly followed the demon-inspired ideals of a unisex approach to church, marriage, and ministry.
This de-gendering of scripture, words, roles, and requirements is a trick of the serpent. Today, many of those denominations that allowed this gender-nuetral approach to everything are today ordaining bishops who are men dressed up like women. The absolute perversion has turned churches into places of rank confusion and corruption.
Further, the prophetic forth-telling of Romans 1 is quite relevant to our day. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans 1 We all would do well to ensure that as believers, we are expressing an image and demonstrating a lifestyle that honors God’s word in how we conduct ourselves and teach our children about the realities of who they are and what they should do.
We need a deliverance from the unisex lie and a revelation of our creator’s intent.
Read and mediate on the words of Jesus,
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
God loves each of us. As individuals, circumstances, opportunities, and even God’s will, one might not marry. That does not mean one cannot find purpose and fulfillment in Jesus Christ and be a great blessing to the Kingdom. This is an exception to the rule, and if you are one of these exceptions, we can find strength, peace, and joy in God’s grace to make up the differences. However, these exceptions do not negate the principle.
