When a bathroom is a symbol of society

Whoever would have guessed that there would be so much discussion regarding which bathroom to use? The expectation, and rule, has always been very clear. Boys in one, girls in the other… worldwide standard… spanning every generation... til now. So called “Bathroom Bills” are being voted on in statehouses across the country, with significant political and financial ramifications (consider N. Carolina). The recent announcement by Target stores that a person can use “the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity” has sparked an uproar with more than 900,000 (as of this date) signing a petition to boycott the store. Among the myriad of issues involved, there are four words that stand out to me. First: confusion… on the part of those who have been led to believe they can pick the sex they “really” are, regardless of what biology has designated. And, confusion on the part of others (the rest of society) who are trying to figure out how to deal with those who are confused about who they are. The end result- a lot of confusion! Second: compassion… for those individuals (and loved ones affected by it) who truly are struggling with this profound, life-altering determination. Lives and families are being turned upside down, and many are experiencing traumatic emotional turmoil. Third: chaos… in family relationships, educational structures, parameters of law and government, military, religion, athletics… so much is framed in the context of understanding the distinction of male and female. Removing or blurring the distinctions will have an increasingly chaotic affect on every area of society. Fourth: truth… ultimately it doesn’t matter what you think, or what I think. What matters is, what is true? Only when we turn to God’s Word can we determine that. Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created mankind in his own image… male and female he created them.” When sin entered the world, confusion, rebellion, and destruction quickly followed. May God give us wisdom to navigate the stormy waters of confusion and chaos all around us. May we offer the clarity of truth with the compassion of Christ for a lost world.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools...” Romans 1:21,22
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, live as children of light, for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.” Ephesians 5:8,9
