CLARITY – 11-28-18 Confusion


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 11-28-18



What’s Happening: “Imagine being a six-year-old child and being from divorced parents (that’s bad enough, but the bad news doesn’t stop there). Now imagine being encouraged to dress like a guy with your Dad and like a girl when with your Mom. The Texas child, born a boy with all the attendant ‘boy parts,’ has been diagnosed by his pediatrician Mom as having gender dysphoria. He identifies with the name James when he’s with his Dad, and ‘Luna’ when he’s with his Mom, who is threatening to remove him from his Dad’s influence permanently ( Sarah Scott, a mother of three sons and a friend of the family, said,‘His mother came to pick up the boys to take them to [his brother’s] soccer game. [He] hugged his dad and said, ‘Love you.’ He refused to go to the soccer game as a girl with Mom and stayed with dad. That evening they came to our house.’”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Isn’t the boy too young to make any decision so weighty?”


Biblical Response:  “That presumes someone other than God can make that choice. It seems obvious to me that the boy just wants to please everyone. He probably blames himself for his parents’ divorce and is just trying to make peace. I feel sorry for the confusion they’ve introduced to him….at any age!”


“Christians? We believe God was not confused when he made man and woman (Gen 1:26; 2:7,  21-25). Though sin may have introduced aberration into the system (Matt. 19:12), we don’t have to encourage that confusion, especially when the physicality seems obvious.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us not to make ‘our’ children into the image we want, but to leave Your job to You;  in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
