“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27 NKJV). Gender and sex for humans were established by God in the Creation. The first “male and female” were joined together in the purest of human relationships we call “marriage” (Genesis 2:22-25). Every attempt by humans to ignore those boundaries is sin. Sex without marriage is “fornication;” sex ignoring marriage is “adultery;” sex within one’s own gender is “against nature” and “shameful” (Romans 1:26-27). Jesus confirmed Creation when He said, “from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female’” (Mark 10:6 NKJV). Crossing gender lines is perverting God’s rule. “Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD” (Proverbs 11:20 NKJV)
