Young people, I have written this article especially for you in hopes that I can spare you from a trauma that you don’t need to experience. If you are in a secular school you may be told that you need to decide what gender you want to be. You may also get it from social media. In other words, if you are a girl, they will tell you that you need to decide if you would rather be a boy. If you are a boy, they will tell you that you need to decide whether you would rather be a girl.

This is something that has been invented within the past 50 years. When I was a boy, I never heard of it. Ask your grandparents. I’m quite sure they will tell you the same thing.

This isn’t a decision for you to make. It was made for you by God in the moment when you were conceived in your mother’s womb. Thanks to modern technology, many parents already know what gender their child will be before he or she is born. Your anatomy tells you whether you are a boy or a girl.

You will never be happy trying to be what you aren’t. If you are a girl, you have many exciting things to anticipate. Put forward your best effort to get a good education. Most girls look forward to the day when the young man God has prepared for them asks them for their hand in marriage. If you are a boy, you too need to get a good education. Seek God’s will for the role in life he has for you. Seek out the girl God wants you to share your life with.

If we do life God’s way, it will render a great deal of satisfaction. Marriage is something young people should plan for and anticipate. If marriage is entered into and practiced God’s way it will be an extremely rewarding experience. It gives you companionship as you share your lives with one another. Ephesians 5:22-25 tells us how we should practice marriage. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.” If each one does his or her part, they will make a tremendous contribution to one another.

Marriage isn’t in God’s plan for some. If you are one of them, be assured, there are other ways of finding fulfillment in life. God has a plan for all of us. If we find that plan, and do our best to fulfill God’s calling, we will find satisfaction in life.

Some people aren’t giving sex its proper place in life. It is out of place if it isn’t practiced in a lawful marriage. Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” Some men just get the pleasure of sex whenever and wherever they can. Some women are willing to make it available to them. When done this way it is just a momentary experience of pleasure. When it is done within the bonds of marriage it is also an act of love and making one another happy.

In our day, more and more couples just start living together. They don’t submit to a legal commitment or one solemnized in a public ceremony. That way they feel no guilt in stepping out of the relationship any time. Men leave women with children to bring up and care for without doing their part. Children don’t feel the security of being loved and cared for. The result is that they are poorly prepared to face life and are often a menace to society. Social problems are rapidly increasing because marriage isn’t being entered into or practiced the way God meant for it to be.

Face the facts, young people. Those who try to change their gender are experiencing some tremendous frustrations, conflicts, even trauma. You can get some good information about transgenderism by going to and typing in transgenderism. There is an article there under the title “Transgenderism: a dangerous new fad”, written by Edward Kennelly. In the article he has this to say, “Per capita, more transgender people have attempted suicide – 22% – 43% of them than any other demographic.” People don’t attempt suicide unless they are suffering from a tremendous trauma. At the beginning I told you that this is one trauma that you don’t need to suffer. Accept how God made you. There is no better way.

Parents and grandparents, I encourage you to make copies of this article and give it to your children and grandchildren. You may spare them from a trauma in their lives.
