The Development of Sexual Sin in Society

Rev. Angus Stewart

 

Some people wonder if, or deny that, God's Word speaks to the issue of transgenderism, thinking that, if it does not, then we may as well capitulate to the intolerant and rapidly expanding agenda of political correctness. But the Lord Jesus said, "Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female [contra transgenderism], And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh [contra homosexual marriage]? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder [contra unbiblical divorce]" (Matt. 19:4-6, quoting Gen. 1:27; 2:24).

In rebellion against the Creator's law regarding human sexuality, the development of sin in society is from unbiblical divorce (for grounds other than fornication, as per Matthew 5:32) to homosexuality and to transgenderism, striking deeper and deeper at the basis of the lifelong, one-flesh union of one man and one woman in marriage, which is the picture of the blessed, spiritual marriage between Christ and His chosen bride, the church (Eph. 5:29-32).
