queer, Drag queens, Gay pride, LGBT [Lesbian, gay, Bisexual, transgender], Same Sex
Partnerships and Marriages, Forces of intolerance, Freedom and Human rights. We are
familiar with the above words and symbols. Recently Indian Supreme court legalizes
gay sex. Courts in many countries legalized the same years back. We must respect court
rulings. There are people who are rejoicing over freedom to enjoy sex with same sex
partners or similar relationships.
As Christians, we look to bible for answers. There are churches that welcome same sex
marriages while others oppose, demonstrate against it saying it as sin. These few
articles are trying to help us understand these issues. Then God said, “Let us make man
in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and
over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over
every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in
the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Gen. 1:26-27)
An Abrogation of God's Design for Human Sexuality
(Per Dr. James Anderson of Reformed Theological Seminary)
A biblical anthropology has to be grounded in the first three chapters of Genesis. It
must acknowledge boththe order and design of creation,andthe disorder and
dysfunction introduced by the fall.
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have
dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the
livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the
earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them. (Gen.1:26-27).
Note the basic gender binary. Thegender binary, also referred to asgenderbinarism
(sometimes shortened to just binarism), is the classification of sex andgenderinto two
distinct, opposite and disconnected forms of masculine and feminine.Gender binaryis
one general type of agendersystem.
Gender binary, is the classification of gender into two distinct, opposite, and
disconnected forms of masculine and feminine, whether by social system or cultural
And God blessed them. And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the
earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of
the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth."(Gen. 1:28)
(Note the central place that procreation plays in the creation mandate.)
Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him
a helper fit for him."(Gen. 2:18)
(Note the complementarity between the man and the woman.) Procreation, man and
woman are key words we must not ignore.
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." Therefore a man shall leave his
father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.(Gen.
Is it not wise for churches, religious organizations and social service associations to
wake up to the reality and help the men and women who are suffering, confused and
facing identity crisis? Blaming them is easy but helping them is hard work. What
would have Jesus done in this troubled situation? We cannot blame these problems to
the disorder and dysfunction Introduced by the fall of man .sit and watch the drama
happening around us. We are called to be our brother’s keeper and be compassionate
to our brothers and sisters in confusion and pain. We cannot ignore what happened to
creation and design of God’s creation because of fall-sin
