The Critical Mass of Theybies Parenting

NBC did a recent major story about parents raising “theybies” (07/19/2018) that is, parents who do not tell their child, or anyone else, what the gender of their child is. They leave it up to the children to decide what their gender is as they grow up. In what area of parenting do we “let the children decide”? Supposing we started to let them decide when to go to bed? Or whether or not they should eat their vegetables? The only way raising “theybies” could make sense to parents if is if they believe that being a boy or a girl is not real.

Does “Queer Theology” Work?

I recently was interviewed by a bright young student studying queer theology. She was trying to figure out what she believed about it. What is queer theology, you ask? Well, as always, people try to adopt Christianity to cultural movements. This isn’t necessarily bad, as God sometimes brings up important truth through the culture. But to do it in a faithful way you must have a firm grasp on the Bible’s truth so you don’t end up damaging or losing the Faith.

Strange Science in the Service of a Statement

The Endocrine Society’s position statement on transgender health promises that “considerable scientific evidence has emerged demonstrating a durable biological element underlying gender identity.” The Society uses these results to advise insurance companies to cover sex changes operations. I am still waiting to see the “considerable scientific evidence” of a biologically based gender identity apart from one’s biological sex.

The Starting Lines Don’t Matter

People have a hard time suppressing all of God’s truth. There is usually some of His common grace operating wherever you see relationships. When you come to recognize the Biblical principles of gender, you can see the good happening even when dressed in some gaudily bad outfits.

“Born This Way” Soon to Go Away

If there was an anthem for the last ten years of gender minimization, it would be the sentence, “I was born this way.” The proclamation would stop conversations, halt dialogues, silence critics. Now the chorus is dying away and, like most pop songs, it will soon be forgotten.
