“Sheryl Sandberg and Gender Differences ” by Dr. Jim Eckman

“Quoting the Creation Ordinance of Genesis 1-2, Jesus declared, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female. . .” (Matthew 19:4). Jesus made this declaration to a culture with no gender identity or gender difference issues. Instead, He was affirming a basic proposition of the human race: God made the human race in two grand streams—male and female—and they are totally different. No matter what humans try to do, they can never erase this fundamental characteristic of the human race. This simple proposition is quite absent from Sandberg’s book—and in that absence is a glaring problem. Perhaps that is the basic reason why, in the pursuit of happiness and in the pursuit of life-fulfilling goals, men and women often take different paths and make different choices. That is not evil and perhaps that is the way God intended it to be. A curriculum of Lean In Circles will not change that. Perhaps the problem Sandberg wants to solve is really not a problem; what she wants to change cannot really be changed. Perhaps the choices women make merely reflect the gender differences in all their complexity and God’s Creation; profound differences rooted deeply in God’s Creation Ordinance.”
