As a first-time parent, you’ve got to be concerned about our culture’s influence on gender. It’s heartbreaking to hear people who are confused about how God made them, either male or female. The science behind that has been true since the beginning of man. Why is it confusing now? Sin. Many view it as how they FEEL rather than what they ARE. As followers of Christ, we parents, must turn to God’s Word, ultimate authority. From day one, it must rule our lives. Turn to it. Open it. Read it. Study it in FRONT of our kids. When they’re little, say things like “The Bible says this…” And, when they’re older say, “I wonder what the Bible says about that.” Then challenge them to find it.
