“So God created man in His own image,
In the image of God He created him;
Male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27
In the opening pages of Scripture, the writer describes the creation of man and woman. We can only imagine the delight that Adam and Eve experienced in the Garden as they discovered their sexuality. Their oneness created the first family. The sexual energy of the first man and first woman ensured that the human race would be fruitful and increase in number.
“And God saw all that He had made, and it was very good…” Genesis 1:31
Throughout history, we see strong leaders that have ruled nations and led armies into battle. We see brilliant leaders who created industries, birthed innovations, and discovered cures for diseases. These individuals have possessed that inner spark that caused them to aim higher, persist longer, and achieve more than those who simply exist.
Today we live in a world where we are to lay aside critical thinking and accept whatever we are told by a few people in power or in the media. “Political correctness” dictates that we accept viewpoints that are foreign to the fabric of our society. Gender distinctiveness is not only being erased, it’s being scorned. Little boys no longer play Cowboys and Indians or line up little Army men for battle. Little girls are encouraged to play rough sports that were once reserved for boys, and young women may enlist for combat duty.
Now even the sanctity of the public restroom is under fire. Puberty is challenging enough without sharing a school restroom or shower room with girls who want to be boys or boys who want to be girls.
I shake my head in disbelief.
It seems to me that universal principles cannot be undone. We cannot change universal laws, even if we rename them. After all, we live by the law of gravity, whether we want to or not.
May our little boys grow up to be men of strength and character, who protect and cherish their families. May they experience the emotional energy that comes from a loving relationship with their beloved.
May our little girls grow up to be beautiful women of strength and dignity, who will nurture and care for their babies. May our daughters experience the emotional energy that comes from being loved by a husband who adores her.
Old fashioned? Maybe. But there are some eternal principles that are perfect just the way they are.
