In today's newsletter: Word on Fire, NET Ministries, gender identity, and faith.
NET has a bit of the cult about it. And if a person is struggling with his gender identity, he needs a counseling and a dose of reality.
In general, I'm in favor of the "no gossip" policies in the workplace and even within ministries. It is a good spiritual practice of thinking the best of each other, and not spreading rumors, or airing others' private lives. However, I also believe that such policies also "set up" predators for success in their evil. I am trying to think of a good way that you can have the best of both situations. Anonymous reporting that is taken seriously? Very concrete definitions of what is unacceptable behavior, and decisive action when the boundary is crossed? Anyway, I believe this is a tough problem and worth struggling with.
Along with recommending the book to people who work with [trans etc] people, do you recommend it to [trans etc] Christians who are unsure of how to balance dysphoria with their faith?
Can‘t problems be dealt with privately and discreetly, as per St Matthew 18.15-17 ?
