Why did God create just male and female?

To those with a gender identity crisis or a same-sex sexual relationship I ask, “Do you have any idea what you’re missing out on?” But as a man married to a woman I also have to ask myself, “Do I, on the other hand, have any idea why God created just male and female, and especially male and female marriage?” Because I’m in no position to ask others what they’re missing out on if I have no idea what I’m missing out on either.

So back to the beginning I went, where, right from the start in Genesis 1:26-28, God explained his purpose for creating male and female. He made us male and female to rule the world together – not as a same-sex couple, or in a spectrum of gender identity – but in a sexual relationship as male and female together that would produce children, and in our relationship as male and female we’d learn how world rule works.

And God quickly explained how world rule works too, because he made male and female in his image, and according to verse 26, God is an “us,” meaning God is a relationship, and it’s in consultation and working together as that “us” that their plan for this world unfolds.

So God is an “us” and so are humans. We, like God, therefore, work together as an “us,” which in our case is male and female together. Life for humans, then, is not a search for self-identity or self-fulfillment, nor is it trying to sort out what one’s true gender or sexual attraction is; it’s about male and female working together, because in working together that’s where the basics of world rule are understood and lived. And male and female together is still the best way as far as God is concerned, as anyone in a community of humans soon learns, whether it be marriage, church, club, business or organization, because it’s in what males and females both have to offer and contribute that balanced and wise plans unfold.

It does away with male domination and feminism too. Think how great life would be if women didn’t feel oppressed or ignored, men didn’t bully women and treat them as inferiors and sex objects, and men and women both realized that God created them each with highly customized and specialized abilities that only working together brings to light.

So while we’re fighting about women’s rights, gender rights (or no-gender rights), or sexual rights, etc., where are the voices crying out, “You’re missing the point, folks; it isn’t about rights, it’s about valuing each other as male and female, because that’s the secret to a world ruled well.”
