eschatology, Man & Woman's Purpose (Gen.2)

God had a very specific design for us, and He lays out our purpose...

(Genesis 2:18-25)  Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” 19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said,
This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

My personal takeaway - God is very intentional, and before sin entered into the world, there were NO questions around sexual orientations, deviations or identity disorders.  As God has created us, we need to trust in His will, and His design and purpose and know that He has His best intentions towards us in having the most fulfilling life possible.
