Science tells us that gender boils down to X and Y chromosomes, but scientists and psychologists tell us that gender is a choice. How do we reconcile these obvious contradictions? When “facts” are twisted and sold as subjective, Christians must fight for objective truth.
Dr. Jeff Myers is president of Summit Ministries in Manitou Springs, CO. Dr. Myers’ many books and video courses on the Christian worldview and social issues include Secrets of Great Communicators, Secrets of the World-Changers, Secrets of Everyday Leaders, Grow Together, Cultivate, The Summit Worldview Library, The Secret Battle of the Ideas About God, and Unquestioned Answers.
In this episode, Dr. Myers explains how Biblical truth applies to today’s discussion of gender identity and gender dysphoria.
- “The battle of our day is not between Republicans and Democrats, or conservatives and liberals, or red states and blue states, or even the religious and the non-religious. The battle of our day is over whether we can know truth… and the biblical understanding is the truth does exist and it can be expressed mathematically.” – Jeff Myers
- “Anything that we place our identity in other than Christ will lead us to confusion and purposeless.” – Jeff Myers
- “Do I have a gender identity? I do. Do I have a racial identity? I do. Do I have an economic identity? I do. Do I have a vocational identity? I do. But if I take any one of those things and I allow it to be the primary organizing principle of my life other than Christ, then I will be misled.” – Jeff Myers
