B003D0TAM8.01._SX490_SCLZZZZZZZ_V190274968_So, with the Bruce Jenner news still fresh in our consciousnesses, how are we to think about gender reassignment surgery? The Journal of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, in too much detail (for me), unpacks the process. Both this article and Russell Moore relate the gospel to this procedure. Moore writes:

The hope for Bruce Jenner, and for others like him, is not to alter the body with surgery or to flood their systems with hormones. The answer is to realize that all of us are born alienated from what we were created to be. We don’t need to fix what happened in our first birth; we need a new birth altogether.

We’re all busy these days. Jon Bloom reminds us that we have just enough time. This is a good reminder.

Why do we have 66 books in our Bibles? Nathan Busenitz tells us why.

In case you haven’t heard, the very good book Shame Interrupted is free for Kindle and Nook.

    “Busyness Is Moral Laziness” – I especially liked this article. As for Mr. Jenner and many like him I feel sadness. Sadness that they go through all they do emotionally and sadness that they cannot just rely on God for ‘what comes next’ as opposed to stepping off the path God gave them to traverse in life. Is it really all that much different from doing plastic surgery so we will look younger and more socially acceptable! I have learned the hard way and still at times am confronted by not stepping off the path God gave me in life. Stepping off the path because we don’t like the weeds in our way is a great way to do not much more than get into even worse trouble.
