What is Biblical Truth? Biblical Truth is a moral concept rooted in God’s character.

15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” 18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. Genesis 2:15-25

Terms We Need to Know (from Sean McDowell, PhD)

  • Transgender is Psychological
  • Intersex is Biological
  • Transgenderism is Ideological

Transgender – incongruence between gender identity and biological sex.

Intersex – a person born with atypical features in their sexual anatomy and chromosomes.

(Less than 1% are born with an ambiguous sex, meaning more than 99% are male or female)

Transgenderism – ideology that aims to transform cultural understandings of sex and gender.

This ideology is being pushed in many different places.
