Faith for Life
The desire to answer the question, “Who am I?” resonates with today’s rising generation. The culture pulls them in a direction that doesn’t align with scripture.
To equip young students with a lifelong faith, we must help them think differently about how their Creator defines them.
Transgenderism has exploded worldwide in the past decade, particularly in the West. The Williams Institute at the UCLA Law School reports that the number of young people identifying as transgender has doubled in the last few years and that one out of five people who identify as transgender are thirteen to seventeen years of age.
On the popular social media platform TikTok, #trans has logged 50.2 billion views as of this writing, nearly doubling within the last year.
The British lesbian activist Kate Harris said,
“Our major concern is that millions of impressionable children are watching these online influencers. It’s no coincidence that the growth of TikTok coincides exactly with the exponential growth of children presenting with gender dysphoria.
In this talk, Dr. Walker will look at the historical, philosophical, ideological, and cultural streams that have led us to the transgender moment. In his talk, listeners will gain an understanding of the subtle ways in which cultural forces work to produce new systems of thought that previous generations would not have understood. The goal of this talk is for Christian leaders to become more attuned to the underlying ethical shifts that forge new paradigms that challenge a Christian way of interpreting reality.
Too many young people believe gender identity can easily change. We culturally have said it’s possible, and even acceptable. Yet, we know theologically that everyone is created in a specific way by an intentional Creator. Learn what we need to believe and what we can do to help secure people’s gender. We don’t need to just be sad, concerned, or angry. We can be proactive!
Whether struggling with their gender identity or receiving an overload of gender-confusing messages on social media, this generation is searching for answers. In this talk, you will learn how to voice concerns to your kids and students about transgenderism, bring clarity to some of the confusion, and gain valuable tactics when discussing the dangerous ideology of the transgender movement.
