Untouchables – A Biblical Perspective on Four Cultural Hot Issues – Transgenderism (week 3)
Welcome to a New LifeGroup Session!
Before we jump into our study, let’s take a moment to remember that there are THREE things we want to see happen every time our LifeGroups gather:
– Movement towards Each Other
– Movement towards God
– Movement towards our Community
Our questions follow this same format. All of the questions are designed towards movement. We hope you enjoy your time together in your LifeGroup.
**Remember, our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus and each other. Use the questions that are help and skip the rest.
CURRENT SERIES: Untouchables – A Biblical Perspective on Four Cultural Hot Issues
In our Cancel Culture environment today, there is fierce opposition against any stance that is in defiance of what is viewed as acceptable norms in our godless society. However, scripture is clear that followers of Jesus do not live by the standards of this world. (1 Cor. 10:2) In light of this truth, we will look at four hot button issues from a Biblical perspective and worldview.
**OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL SESSIONS WE WILL BE DISCUSSING SEVERAL TOPICS THAT MAY HAVE VARYING OPINIONS. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL IN YOUR DISCUSSION, YOU MAY NOT KNOW EVERYONE’S STORY. REGARDLESS OF OPINIONS, THE BIBLE IS THE FINAL AUTHORITY. GRACE AND TRUTH. GRACE AND TRUTH.**
Last Week: Have you judge some sins differently than others? What can you do differently to change that in your life? How can you show God’s love for people who may view the world differently than you?
Two Weeks Ago: If you know someone who has been impacted by an abortion, ask God if there is something you can do to share His Love with them.
“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
Movement Towards Each Other (know the people in your group)
When you were born, were your parents hoping for a boy or a girl?

Do you have siblings?
All one gender or mixed?
Did you ever wish you had another sibling of a different gender?
Who are you closest to and why?

What is a man? What is a woman?
Why did God make the genders so different?
Why did God make the man and woman to be together in a marital relationship?
Why do you think God said that what He made was “very good”?

How does this passage apply to the gender we were given by God?
What happens when the “creation” starts telling the Creator they got it wrong?
What does it say about our feelings towards God?
What happens when we start to normalize that gender can be whatever you want it to be?
How does that impact society?
Read Ephesians 6:12; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5; 2 Peter 5:8-9
Why does satan attack what God has created?
Why does he want people to question their gender?
Why do we need to be aware of satan’s attacks?
