LGBT and Gender Identity
2 Corinthians 5:16-21
Where does a person get his identity? When Paul wrote to the Corinthian church he had much to say about the way they should live, especially as he addressed particular problems within the church. Interestingly he enough, his starting point for their behavior was their identity. Paul explains “you are, therefore you do.” This is just the opposite of our modern cultural worldview that says “you do, therefore you are.” Since it is God who gives you an identity, you must look past self-made identities.
