Does the Bible support gender equality, diversity, and inclusion?
The short answer is yes. In heaven, there is no distinction between gender or age. There is no marriage or sexual orientation. However, having a same-sex relationship is definitely out of the question because God calls it an abomination.
1. God is for inclusion
Adam and Eve sinned, and the rest of their descendants had to live outside paradise, suffer, and die. He then chose a particular group of people to be set apart from the rest of the evil men. Still, He gave humanity several chances, but the hearts of men are weak to sin.
When God’s chosen people, the Jewish Israelites, refused Jesus as their savior, God extended salvation to the Gentiles (non-Jews).
Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection is a new covenant we have with God to those who believe and turns to Him. No race, religion, or even sin can prevent us from being included in God’s plan for salvation.
2. Jesus preached inclusion
The Jews hated the Samaritans. They wouldn’t dare talk or be near any of them. Racially, the Samaritans are their half-brother. However, they didn’t keep themselves pure and married among pagans. Hence, they were called mongrels, dogs—outside God’s chosen people.
Jesus severed that notion when He talked to a Samaritan woman on the well. In a sense, Jesus first shared the gospel not with his fellow Jews but with a Samaritan woman. He also told the parable of the good Samaritan to emphasize the inclusion of those who love God, regardless of their racial identity.
Gender chaos rather than dysphoria
Gender dysphoria is real. We cannot invalidate a person whose sexual or gender orientation differs from their physical attributes. However, it remains to be a sinful nature, and when acted upon gives birth to sin.
After desire has been conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
Left liberal’s “progressive” agenda is anti-Christian
Gender fluidity, diversity, and inclusion for left liberals are anti-Christian because they redefine God’s design: “Male and female He created in His image” (Genesis 1:27).
Just as Satan demanded equality with God, Satan wants to erase distinctions in the guise of inclusivity. It is only the beginning of calling “what is good evil and what is evil good.”
It has led to Christian persecution
Left-liberals support same-sex marriage and protect the LGBTQ community, yet they criminalize a religious person for influencing someone to overcome homosexuality. Implicitly, their objective is to disrupt and destroy the traditional family, mocking God.
They pretend to support religious freedom yet bring Christians to court if they refuse service to the LGBTQ community. Ultimately, their version of equality is the same hubris of Satan—order to cancel God. The future holds more chaos.
Gender equality, diversity, and inclusion are a celebration of sin
The bottom line, gender diversity may sound progressive, but underneath it is a self-centered, self-glorifying celebration of sin. It is demonic to the core because it mocks God.
