Core Christianity: Tough Questions Answered

Can We Choose or Assign Our Gender?

host Adriel Sanchez aired September 15, 2022

Episode 1055 Show Notes 

From the Show

Scripture says that God created us male and female. This is something that God has done, it’s not something that we choose or decide for ourselves, but it is given to us by the Lord. But you don’t even need to be a Christian to see the absurdity of this ideology. But that isn’t to say that gender dysphoria is a real psychological disorder as well.

Can We Choose or Assign Our Gender?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Do people still prophesy without speaking as they did in 1 Chronicles 25?
  2. In the school system, they want children to choose the gender they want to be in and allow them to use their preferred bathrooms. What does the Bible say about those things? Can children choose their gender identity?
  3. When the New Testament speaks of “faith,” is it actually speaking of “faithfulness”?
  4. Can the Holy Spirit dwell in someone who isn’t a Christian?
  5. In what ways can I begin to teach my kids about the faith?
