Hello Church Family,
New City Catechism #4
How and why did God create us?
God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
Have you ever considered that our genders reflect the image of God?
Just as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are distinct persons yet share the same nature, so too do men and women share the same nature.
And how much more when we consider the marriage relationship where the man and the woman become one flesh!
There are differences, but there is unity.
Consider the implications of these statements in the light of a very confused culture right now.
