English Sermon (06/13/21) – Theology of Sexual Identity (Gen 1:26-28)
God’s perfect design of us includes our sexuality. He created males and females. Our hormones and genetics confirm God’s design. Contrary to the world’s definition, our sexuality is not different from our gender. Sex and gender are one and the same. While gender roles may be generalities based on social and cultural values, gender identity is absolute. Gender identity is not a preference or a choice. Rather it’s God’s perfect design for us. Our gender is hardwired into how God has made us. Any sexual behavior that is against God’s perfect order is considered a sin against God. But the good news is that the Gospel is good enough to save anyone, including those who struggle with sexual identity.
