‘Haven’t you read,’ [Jesus] replied, ‘that at the beginning the Creator “made them male and female[?] …”‘  ~ Matthew 19:4

 

Question: If the entire world were to be converted to Christianity to-morrow and everyone sought to live their lives in accordance with biblical principles (both morally and practically)–how would we be able to recognise the difference between men and women?

In other words, if everyone were living a biblical/ Christian life, how would you recognise a man from a women on the street? 

I look forward to your thoughts…

  2. As for beards, I’ve made no secret of my belief that God gave men beards for a reason. Although I believe they should be normative, I also understand that, due to genetics and other factors (including the Fall), not all men are able to grow beards even if they wanted to.

    Overall, however, my point has to do with externals such as beards, hair, dress/ modesty, etc., especially in a culture that so militantly promotes homosexuality and androgeny in its desire to erase all distinctions between the sexes.

    So, as Christians, what externals would/ should we possess that would preserve the sexual distinctives because, as is clear in Scripture, they are important and should be preserved.

    My question, then, is to ask other Christians their views and spur us to think whether we are accomplishing that because the culture obviously is not.
