Is it OK to build a relationship on lies? Well, I guess it depends, because people are now being pressured to call a man a woman and vice versa if that's what a person wants. Culture wants to dictate our feelings and attitudes and will go to great lengths to do this. There are some movements that are geared toward making us allies with the wrong groups and distancing us from our most valuable and important relationship. God wants to dictate our feelings and attitudes as well, and this episode reminds us of the great lengths that he went through for us all.
