Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

New York Rings In New Year By Offering Gender Neutral Birth Certificates

New York residents may now change their birth certificates to reflect a neutral gender identity after an October bill became effective on the first day of the new year.

The New York City Council first passed the bill in September allowing any adult living in the city to change his or her gender to “X” on their birth certificate. The bill also permits parents to choose “X” on their newborn babies’ birth certificates.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the measure into law on Oct. 9, 2018, according to Reuters.

“You be you. Live your truth. And know that New York City will have your back,” de Blasio said after signing, Reuters reported.

The law took effect Tuesday.

Effective today! People born in NYC can now change the gender marker on their birth certificates to “X.” The third category makes birth certificates more inclusive to all gender identities. Here's what you need to know: https://t.co/QyaSSVK7sE pic.twitter.com/38BcxCppzs

Prior to the bill, New Yorkers had to undergo gender confirmation surgery in order to change the designations on their birth certificates.

“Transgender and gender non-binary New Yorkers will no longer need a letter from a physician or an affidavit signed by a licensed health care provider to change their gender on their birth certificate,” the state Health Department wrote in a statement, The Gothamist reported.

In 2017, California became the first state to allow citizens to change markings on their birth certificate to the gender they identify with rather than their biological gender.

Puerto Rico, Oregon, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. also allow residents to change their birth certificates according to their gender identity. Doctors’ notes and gender confirmation surgery are not needed as prerequisites to change the gender on official documentation in these states.
