Does God Allow Us to Change Our Sex?

Because we are living in a day and age where the transgender ideology is everywhere, we need to go out of our way to teach God’s good creational design and intent for gender. The New Reformation Catechism on Human Sexuality gives us a clear answer to the question, “Does God permit us to change our sex?” The answer reads, “Certainly not. To reverse how God created us as male or female, due to fallen, unchosen thoughts and self-perceptions would be an act of rebellion, and a gross distortion of God’s creative handiwork in specifically forming us for his own glory. Further, in the New Jerusalem, any genital mutilation, or confusion over sexual orientation identity, will be restored in our new resurrection bodies. Therefore, we should not change our sex since God promises to glorify our bodies, in everlasting happiness, as he created us male and female, in the final resurrection.” Parents, we need to push back on the gender ideologies which are so easily believed, with God’s unchanging Word.
