So the Boy Scouts are going to start admitting girls to their program next year.
Apparently, many of the young ladies involved in Girl Scouts want to do more than sell chocolate mint cookies.
And… the Boys Scouts seem to believe their current recruiting problem will be solved by welcoming girls.
But there’s something deeper going on here.
The real reason girls are being admitted to a boys group that’s been around for over 100 years is this:
American culture has rejected the narrative of reality God has given us in His Word…
Particularly the part about God making us ‘male and female.’
Our rejection of the God-ordained differences between males and females is not without cost.
This includes the growing level of gender confusion that’s already taking place in our society.
For many, the revelation about the Boy Scouts admitting girls is just odd.
And it is odd.
But accounts like this are going to keep on coming until we recover God’s storyline…
… about creation, the fall, and redemption…
And we embrace male and female differences as something to be nurtured — not ignored.
