Gender | Les Newsom

Scripture Reference: Genesis 2:18-25

We live in a day when sex and gender have been torn apart in the culture’s imagination, only to suggest that our sexual differences are merely skin deep. Genesis 2 says otherwise. Quite the contrary, our sexual differences are a window into the very love of God for his people.
