Male and Female Differences: Part 1 – Debunking the “Men are Visual” Lie

Christians tend to focus only on what Christ did to the soul when he died on the cross, propitiating for our sin and our sin nature, reconciling us to the Father. This extravagant yet limited focus often neglects how a regenerated new birthed soul (a one-time work of God) impacts what we do with redeemed transforming bodies, where our sin nature will continue to exist, but will have no power to reign (Romans 6). Since one cannot reset their body to factory pre-Fall settings, transformation is a process that includes using our bodies and our minds for righteousness, providing evidence that a new birth has indeed occurred. We cannot separate the body from the soul, nor emphasize the soul over the body. God’s work in salvation through Christ bought both body and soul.
