Parents keep child’s gender a secret
A Toronto couple has decided to keep their child’s gender a secret so the child can choose its own gender. While this may seem extreme, these parents are simply consistently applying postmodern gender wisdom. God’s binary, black and white distinction of male or female is not only limiting it is oppressive. "Witterick and Stocker believe they are giving their children the freedom to choose who they want to be, unconstrained by social norms about males and females." The assumption that man is inherently good and will make the best choice for himself if left on his own, has been getting us into trouble since the garden of Eden. The article continues "Stocker, 39, and Witterick, 38, believe kids can make meaningful decisions for themselves from a very early age… In fact, in not telling the gender of my precious baby, I am saying to the world, ‘Please can you just let Storm discover for him/herself what s(he) wants to be?!" Albert Mohler commenting on this remarkable position says, "The major issue at stake in this controversy is the objective reality of sex and gender. We are, in fact, what our genitals tell us we are. This is not because we are genitally determined, but because we were created by a holy God, whose plans and purposes for us are, inescapably, tied to our gender."
We ought to praise God that He has something much better for us than gender confusion. He guides us in many ways – one of which is through determining our gender and the roles and responsibilities that go along with it. What a disaster it is to be left on our own to discover what truth is.
