"God didn't really create male and female -- he just created two groups, and whatever those groups wanted to identify as was completely their choice" 🤔

May I present a dazzling look at the current state of biblical illiteracy in our society!

Quote: "He [God] didn't really create male and female. He just created two groups and whatever those groups wanted to identify as or whatever those two groups wanted to do, that was completely their choice because there was no such thing as male or female."

I'll see you that narrative and counter this one that comes from the very first chapter of the Bible:

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." – Genesis 1:27

And just a few chapters later:

"Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created." – Genesis 5:2

After Adam and Eve disobeyed Him, God even gave men and women different curses based on their gender!

Then when He told Noah to build the ark, he specifically instructed him to bring a male a female mating pair of each species (since even the first of our forefathers understood the basic biology of dichotomous sex):

"And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female." – Genesis 6:19

Then, of course, you have Jesus, the author of life and language, who had this to say:

"Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate." – Matthew 19:4-6

Even the meaning of the names "Adam" and "Eve" have gender-specific connotations. The Semitic root letters for "Adam" connect to other words meaning "beginnings," "calm," "ruddy," and "earth," and it has a masculine ending. "Eve" (or "Chavah" in Hebrew) relates literally to the words for "breath," "to live," and "life-giver." It has a feminine ending.

Sorry to the woke "womxn" crowd out there: if you have a problem with gender-specific grammar or the biblical definition of men and women, take it up with God!
