Is God in Your Church?

An Atheist once asked a Pastor to prove that God is real. "Well that's easy," said the Pastor. "Just come to my church this Sunday and you'll experience his presence first-hand." That Sunday, the Atheist visited the Pastor's church. He experienced a particularly powerful service. The worship was so moving that people were standing with their hands raised and on their knees crying. A woman returned from the hospital having been healed from cancer after many months of prayer.

Since our sexual differences are for this purpose, and our drive to bear children is one of the most fundamental aspects of who we are, our masculinity and femininity is fundamental to our identities. But childbearing is not our most important purpose. There is so much more to life, like recreation, fellowship, art, science and exploration, serving other people, ruling over God’s creation and doing his will. Because our differences as men and women are part of who we are, they affect all areas of our lives, not just reproduction.
