So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
God & Gender Ideology
Two of the most common lies taught by gender industry activists, especially to young children, are that “One can be born in the wrong body,”[i] and that “God made a mistake.”[ii] Although we have already discussed arguments that defeat the first lie, the second lie can similarly be dismantled by investigating the only three corollaries that can flow out of the idea that God might err: 1) God is cruel, 2) God is incompetent, or 3) God doesn’t exist.
God Is Cruel
One of the claims that transgender rights activists frequently make to support belief in a gender spectrum (infinite genders), as opposed to a binary (male and female), is diversity. They argue that gender is like skin color or like the variety of animal species in nature. They assert that God—if they address God at all—isn’t a limited or limiting god, but a god who celebrates diversity in every aspect of his creation.
However, if God is sovereign and omnipotent (all-powerful), and God intentionally creates persons whose inner landscape (their “gender”) is mismatched to their outer landscape (their physical sex) then we can only conclude that God is cruel. To specifically design a creature whose mind and body are at odds with one another is to create a lack of integrity (here meaning integrated-ness, or symbiosis of the system) which must by definition cause the creature pain and suffering.
The transgender narrative explains this pain and suffering as a result of societal non-acceptance. But no matter what one experiences at the hands of others, certainly the very state of existing at war with oneself creates its own inherent pain and lack of peace. To believe that God would deliberately curse someone to live in disharmony with himself, or be required to undergo extensive and life-long medicalization through human-handed surgery and drug treatment in an attempt to achieve harmony, is to paint God as a sadist.
God Is Incompetent
Most religious holy texts are clear on three points about their deity: God is omnipotent (all-powerful), God is omniscient (all-knowing), and God is omnipresent (all-seeing). Biblical references to these three characteristics include...
