Intentionally and Purposely Crafted
Genesis 1:27 (KJB) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
This is an important Truth to grasp!
All mankind was formed individually and lovingly by the hand of God. Mankind cannot wish away his nature, his gender, alter himself, suppress the calling of God, or ignore his given lot in life. Each person was crafted intentionally from the hand of God and nothing can change that which He has so wonderfully created.
God did not just randomly form us as males and females without a given purpose for each and every one of us before his or her physical birth into this world.
In fact, God said that He knew you before He formed you in Jeremiah 1:5 KJB.
God knows each of us individually and intimately.
So what makes anyone think they know more than God about the true nature of our physical and spiritual nature? A man will not find his true identity or image within himself or through another individual but can only find his true identity by personally knowing Jesus Christ. Those who sincerely know Jesus accept His hand at work in this world and individually in their own life.
To reject or refuse the very nature and physical attributes of God divinely given to each person is to reject His authority and Truth. It is to say that what God has unambiguously given man is dysfunctional or out of order, rather than agreeing with the very nature of God that each individual has been created just exactly as He intended.
Secondly, it is to say that anyone who desires something other than that which God has naturally given knows more than He does. This statement is far removed from the Truth. Man’s understanding is limited while God divinely sees and knows all.
