Here is another short take Christian worldview with David.

We like to play a soundbite from early in the film that characterizes what the contentious conversation that goes back and forth over this issue of transgender is and that we hear in the media today.

No easy EDTTTIQ head dragging///all the news I did not have a chance to comment on how good the White House look legislation bathroom down in our school queen story attainment. Socially, even reaching into our churches, causing families to question my child. I chose my child, pushing everyone calls themselves a follow Christ to wrestle with the question on can you be a Christian if you generally feel like you're trapped in the wrong body to God make you dislike exchanging possible in that soundbite toward the beginning of the film, MD, it deals with some of the common discourse that you sheer in the midst of this issue of homosexuality and transgender is about the culture war so to speak on this topic, but the film doesn't deal so much with that actually pretty miserly with the cultural or political battle over over these issues deals with the issue of transgender is him in a very personal compassionate and biblical standpoint. Even the title in his image as the foundation for understanding why this can be overcome in the Gospels made clear in the scriptural foundation for who God made you, why did you put so much emphasis on that and not so much emphasis just on the culture were things you see on the news every night of the great question will obviously if you are familiar at all with American family Association.

The ministry that I work for that put this document together. You know that were certainly not silent when it comes to the questions of issues in the culture Christians being involved in politics and all of the things that are emerging within the within the civic arena, but when it came to AFA leadership wanting to make a film that would speak to this issue. They realize we we have made such a consistent and clear stand when it comes to the other culture war questions and we continue to do that through our radio programs are our broadcast and in our articles and things like that. And of course those things are constantly changing and you kinda need to have your finger constantly on the posted to pick out the nuances, but there needed to be some kind of presentation that would that would clearly define for us as an organization for our viewers for our donors for people who the Christian church. What does it mean to be made in the image of God, why, why do we talk about these things, you know, it's the question underneath the question. You know it's the question that Christians start to get upset about something and that in the culture with gay marriage or something and you're hearing two sides of the of the debate, but would often is lacking in many Christians honestly David are lacking is is the biblical foundation for why they even believe what they believe sometimes they're just following along because I feel like this is what trusted people I know were saying and so we should be opposed to this, but Christians should be rooted and grounded in truth, that we should understand the reasons why we believe what we believe and so that's what AFA wanted to do with this documentary we wanted to get in and to see what the Scripture say we wanted to be able to present some some scientific evidence that backs up the scriptural truth. We wanted to be able to point to stories of hope and change of people who really have come through these things because that's the other narrative that were hearing is that people can't change their just born that way, and the transgender question is such a new one that you know honestly when we were getting into the process we we didn't even know if we could find stories of people who had gone in and come out of it. I mean, we knew that God was God was at work and people, but you know what the stories be there. Would someone be able to come forward with a clear, credible testimony and be able to talk about the amazing work of God's restoring and redeeming grace in their own life and you know in God's mercy, he brought those people to us and so we were able to highlight that in the film, but you know that that was the reason for the focus really is.

Is the church is to be called back and we need to sometimes be called back to first things we need to remember why we do the things we do instead of just getting into the pattern of well I'm just a conservative politically, and I just need to follow along. Along with this bearing witness, and the culture is important and it's a very essential on the Christian life. We need to understand why God called to bear witness clear on that. Really opening ourselves up to deception into error into easily be led astray to other things and you seen that a lot, especially the younger generation of so-called this is been a short take Christian will be with David.
