QA: What Does the Bible Say Abut "Self Identification"?

QUESTION: What does the Bible say about "self identification"? - April, 2019   

Answer: We keep hearing about people who “self-identify” ... The dictionary defines it as, “identification with someone or something outside oneself.” “Self-consciousness” is the awkward feeling that we do not feel comfortable with our surroundings, but we can adjust. “Self-identification” is the fiction that we can actually make ourselves something/someone other than what we really are! “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Then may you also do good who are accustomed to do evil?” (Jeremiah 13:23) ... Read More of this and other QA on my Questions Answered page. Please feel free to submit a question on this page.

Engendering God’s Wrath - Mini Article Available

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18). Jesus said, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female'” (Matthew 19:4). Efforts to suppress the gender truth of Creation engenders God’s wrath. Whether it is to remove gender differences in a language’s pronouns, trans gendering surgeries, or flagrantly adopting cross gender practices, God’s wrath is incurred. Jesus’ statement shows that: 

(1) Creation facts contained in Scripture (Genesis 1:27) and as universally seen in human nature had not changed; 

(2) He did not adapt Creation facts to modern customs, nor did He separate Creation fact from human fantasies. God approves no attempt to suppress His Creation of “male and female.”  - 1/11/2021

This and other mini articles are available in Words of Wisdom Articles. They are also published in the local Independent Herald newspaper.
