Today on the podcast, I’m replying to a question I am getting a lot lately: “How do we respond to the cultural push to normalize gender fluidity?”
This is an important topic, but we can’t talk about transgender issues—or any other issue—without first remembering that God calls us to speak the truth in love. God loves us, no matter our struggles. Surely His heart breaks over the sin that is causing people to do irreparable harm to their bodies in the name of finding their own version of truth.
We are a culture in crisis.
Somehow we’ve come to a place where women who do not want men in their bathrooms and locker rooms are accused of bigotry and labeled “transphobic.” It’s an upside-down world and it’s requiring that we have a tough conversation. Listen in as we talk about this very important topic.

Dare to be a Daniel: Talking to Your Kids About Standing for the Lord – This is startlingly new territory for parents: explaining why a man is being celebrated as a woman on the cover of a magazine is not something we’re used to talking about. Here’s the thing: If we don’t set a place for the truth of Scripture at the table of our children’s hearts, the world will set out a feast all it’s own.
A Spiritual Crisis and a Crossroad: How Should Christians Respond? – Looking around, it’s clear that many Christians have unbuckled the belt of truth under enormous pressure from the culture. Many pastors have begun exchanging the truth of God’s Word for the easy “truth” of the world in an effort to be “loving,” except that denying the truth of God is never loving. I have to wonder if those pastors who will not stand on the authority of Scripture care more about winning a popularity contest than they do about speaking the truth.
