On February 15, the Zacharias Institute will host its second event in the #TrendingQuestions series, “How Can I Know My Gender?” Join us as we seek to understand the cultural moment we live in with regard to gender identity, and consider how the Bible can bring clarity and compassion to many of the questions each of us face today. Our featured speaker will be RZIM itinerant Sam Allberry, author of Is God Anti-Gay? and his forthcoming book, Seven Myths About Singleness.

(Andilina) #16

Watching also…love Sam Alberry! Glad he’s addressing this topic!!


(LaTricia J.) #17

As am I. It’s a topic that needs to be addressed, and done so boldly.


(LaTricia J.) #18

Wow! This is interesting how deep the matter of transgenderism is along with biology and sex as well as sexual/romantic attraction.


(LaTricia J.) #19

Key point - gender not being psychological only and something that is disembodied.

The binary is really what people buck against as society moves towards being androgynous. It’s almost as if in general, we want the so called best of all worlds, even if those worlds are incompatible or can’t neatly overlap.

Yes, and I really think the secular view that gender is something disembodied would really end up falling back on itself, because if it is disembodied, it still has to come from somewhere. The fact that the secular view decries a biologically dictated gender, saying it is psychological, still leads to the question of how gender is decided. Simply saying it is psychological does not really answer that for me, because 1) coming from a human services background, the psychological is usually based in physical processes. For example, mental illnesses are not isolated from the biological processes of the brain 2) if the claim takes the turn that gender is disembodied, then where does that disembodied identity come from? It still points somewhere other than ourselves.

Does what I am saying make sense?


(LaTricia J.) #24

Yes, @psalm151ls, it does make sense. I’m sitting here thinking of some of the transgenders I know personally and in general, some of the ways that people think. There’s this philosophical pov about the mind, soul, and spirit - the understanding being that it’s all neutral, disembodied, and the physical world and body is whatever a person wants to make it out to be because the mind, soul, and spirit are better than and not necessarily tied to the physical. The physical will fade away, and in the grand scheme of things doesn’t matter. That is juxtaposed to what Sam has spoken about in regards to the Christian worldview in regards to the the integral connection between mind, soul, spirit, and body - God made it a unit, not just disembodied parts that are pulled together arbitrarily.
