"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Here are a couple of comments I recently read on Face Book. The Post was a ‘Forward’ from a personal friend and the comments from strangers, whose names I redacted:
“1. Because God loves us so, He gives us the freedom to do as we please. Yes, that includes gender identity/expression. That however, does NOT change the biological FACT that almost all people are born either biologically male or biologically female. And I do not believe that makes me rigid, judgmental nor intolerant. I can most certainly disagree with someone in regards to their gender/sexual identity/expression and still be compassionate and loving! Ask my son. He is gay.”
2. “Giving my class a name such as the cubs or the timberwolves or purple penguins in no way makes any child or person go against their belief in god or dishonor him.And yes, when a transgender child or adult does change their name and begins to live according to their gender identity- it does stop their pain and sadness in many ways. Because that pain comes from feeling you must fit into the labels that society says. It is amazing to see when people actually take control of their own lives. I am sorry that you can’t see that or see past your limiting beliefs. I am not going to say anymore in this thread because I am at the end of my patience. I like Nathalie and you are friends of hers, so I have been very tame in my responses. But I am done now”.
Most of comments I read, had invoked “god” in their comments. I always wonder, what kind of church to these people go to. . . and what form of Bible do they read?? This is insanity — ‘spiritual insanity’.
Spiritual insanity is denying the truth of the Bible, the truth of Who God is and what His Word teaches. It leads Christians down the road of believing more in the world view, aka, their own personally contrived views, than Biblical truths. Deny long enough and we become ‘spiritually insane’.
There is no reality such as “gender confusion”, but just the intolerance for God’s Word. God created them and He created male and female (Gen.w:27) Spiritual insanity, clinical insanity and acceptance of an evil, world views creates ‘confusion’. This isn’t simply my personal view nor view of our church. Here is an accredited doctor from Johns Hopkins, stating much the same thing. here
“Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is ‘Mental Disorder;’ Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’
Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. here
I don’t have much regard for psychiatrist and the like, since our problems can all be answered from within the Bible. God tells us what is wrong and what our ‘cures’ are. Our problem as people is believing, accepting and following what God has given. No ‘Shrink’ can give us that.
But this “gender confusion” garbage is being hoisted upon our children and youth. And it is just that — garbage.
A couple of years ago, two lesbian woman raising an adopted boy (6 or so at the time), who decided he wanted to be a girl so they dressed him up as a girl, changed his name, allowed his hair to grow long and attempted to enroll the little boy in the Girl Scouts. They sued when he was denied. That was only one case I read about. Some radical, Leftist in the homosexual community are demanding the rest of us with religious objections, accept their abnormality or “mental illness”, as normal. Just as the lesbian Democrat Houston Mayor demands that “gender confused” males and females must have the “right” to go into the public bathroom of their choosing. Insanity. here
It’s shameful enough when grown adults delve into the world of homosexual lifestyles, but now they demand to be treated not with simple respect as a human being, but honored for their choices and ‘lifestyle’. People, who are the ‘normal’, are supposed to kowtow to their agenda . . . . at the expense of ours. . . . our lives, our lifestyle and our families. It’s possible to say ‘No’ and not ‘hate’ or have some phony, contrived “phobia”. Conservative, Christian views are based solidly in the Bible. Liberal propaganda is based in the ‘world view’ of political correctness.
It isn’t hate, fear or disrespect to know what is right and good nor to call sin, sin. It is what we’re expected, and called to do, by God. For those who disprove of us and God, that is their personal problem. They can and should be prayed for privately, but we can not allow these people and their racial agenda to change society or our Christian views. We can stand, vote and speak to what is right and good and do so without hating anyone. After all, we’re all sinners.
But unfortunately, for too long, we have done just that, and liberal church preach more liberalism than Biblical truths. This was also predicted in the Bible itself, regarding a “falling away” in the “last days”. But God is good and gracious and watches over His own. . . and He certainly has a lot of watching to do.
