God & Gender: What About Transgender? (Part 2)

If God created us male and female, why have so many of God’s sons questioned if he actually created them to be his daughters? And why have so many Christian women wondered if they were really made to be God’s sons? Paul indirectly answered these questions when he wrote about the struggles of life in this broken world. Both parts of this message intend to explain the transgender temptation and offer hope and encouragement to those facing it.

God & Gender: In Marriage (Part 2)

Perhaps now more than ever, Americans find the idea of distinct gender roles as outdated, offensive, and oppressive. Much more preferable, many believe, is to recognize God-given gifts, regardless of gender. How does such thinking fit into the biblical view that Paul lays out in Ephesians chapter 5 where husbands are the “heads” of their wives and wives are called to submit to their husbands? How do biblically committed Christians winsomely explain these verses in our modern age?

God & Gender: In the Church (Part 2)

First Timothy chapter 2 is a chapter in the Bible many Christians wish was not written. The apostle Paul’s words seem patriarchal and downright impossible. No elaborate hairstyles? or expensive clothes? Women in church must be “quiet”? Really? Both parts of this message, which are based on 1 Corinthians, seek to faithfully explore Paul’s provocative words from 1 Timothy in context and the issue of men and women working together in the church.
