Defining Biblical Masculinity & Femininity

September 5, 2021

This week on the Sunday Series, Bryce and I begin a new series on gender roles as defined by the creation order in the bible. Gender is thought to be a social construct that changes with society/culture. Biblically we know that our gender, and the gender roles inherent in each gender, are defined by God alone and not mankind. Gender does not change and Gender roles do not change. God has told us what these things are and how we ought to think about them. The human mind is spectacular but not spectacular enough to undo the things God has already put into us. The weeks following, Bryce and I will continue to walk through biblical gender roles and how Christians ought to think about them based on various passages in the bible. Thanks so much for listening, we hope it glorifies God and edifies you!

Key Texts: Genesis 1:26-27, 2:15-25; 1 Corinthians 11:3, 7-9

My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce is getting his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.
