“The Genesis of Gender”
A very helpful podcast episode by Mortification of Spin on the subject of gender.
“Why are Men in Crisis?”
“Man Park,” cooed the Saturday Night Live narrator, “it’s like a dog park, but for guys … so they can make friends and have an outlet besides their girlfriends and wives.” The sketch, from about a year ago, points to an unfortunate reality. Men are in crisis, struggling with a loss of purpose, of relationship, and of usefulness.
A January 2021 report from the Institute for Family Studies noted that “Girls are outperforming boys at every level, from elementary school through graduate school.” However, this isn’t primarily because girls are succeeding. It’s because, as Andrew Yang with The Washington Post wrote, “Boys and men across all regions and ethnic groups have been failing, both absolutely and relatively, for years.”
On the other side of gender transition
El Origen y Propósito del Matrimonio / The Origin & Purpose of Marriage
Is sex before marriage really a sin?
A pretty good, short overview of the question from the Scriptures. Open your mind to God, and go deaf to the culture and your own deceitful heart!
My only caveat is that the speaker uses a Bible version that translates the Greek word porneia as “sexual immorality” and not “fornication.” I prefer the latter, since the former is too vague. But other than that, the content is spot-on.
El testimonio de un mundo integrado
“Y hasta la continuidad de la creacion, y su preservacion y gobierno, nos enseñan que si existe una Deidad, quien soporta y mantiene y preserva y siempre provee por este universo. Porque como podrian naturalezas opuestas, como fuego y agua, aire y tierra, combinarse como para formar un mundo completo, y continuan en union indisoluble, si no hubiera un poder omnipotente que los atara juntos y siempre los preserva de disolucion?”
-Juan de Damasco (c. 675-749)
