I had a ( justifiably) frustrated man talking with me yesterday about how his ex wife is allowing his daughter to “transition”.
His apologetic was that it was impossible because “God doesn’t make mistakes” …He created her a girl and a girl she was…an argument I’ve heard before.
It’s a bad argument.
It’s a bad argument because we live in a fallen world and all manner of things are broken, including human sexuality.
God doesn’t make mistakes, but nothing (yet) is the way God created or intended…there are better arguments to be made against the trans fad…
There are 350 million guns in the possession of Americans…the idea that we can control that number is ludicrous…but we can control the environment in which those guns reside…which is why I rail on the “news” programs that exist solely to keep people angry…and conspiracy theorists who exist to keep people paranoid…and Christians that support both…
Just some perspective on the conspiracy theory that football player Damar Hamlin is dead from a vaccine injury...think of the added stress you are putting on a man and his family…the truth is that we have people who hope that he’s dead because it would fit the narrative they are selling and no amount of proof will ever be enough.
Some more perspective…from someone who had a vaccine injury…me…there are currently 1,696 players in the NFL…1057 players in Major League Baseball…903 players in the National Hockey League…and about 450 in the National Basketball Association…99% of them are vaccinated…and we have no issues reported…
Watching Russia decimate Ukraine with missiles I wonder what that stockpile of AR-15’s is going to do to stop our government should it turn on us…
Jobs wife urged him to curse God and die…caregivers get it…
Put not your trust in ChatGPT…
Why do so many talk about Jesus ,but not read the Bible?
The West…post or pre-Christian?
The last world emperor: Christianity’s other Messiah…

Trans people happen in the womb.
There is a documentary called NINE MONTHS THAT MADE YOU. Dvd available online.
It goes week by week in fetal development.
At one point when the genitals are formed, one or more hormones are normally sent to the brain like a memo. ‘You’re going to be (‘male’ or ‘female’).
But sometimes that hormone is delayed.
The brain doesn’t get the memo.
Therefore there are kids who can be very young and are alienated from their own body and very uncomfortable.
It’s definitely not a fad.
And it’s not new.
It’s just now they don’t have to hide from people with demanding expectations.
However they get killed by people in the US who are hateful.
They get killed very often.
By uniformed, sick, hateful people.
Don’t be one!! Don’t spread ignorant and dangerous thinking!
There are no doubt a minuscule number of people who genuinely have this sort of issue.
However…I believe it is as much a construction of a social agenda as anything and you will not convince me that we suddenly have this many people with gender dysmorphia.
If someone disagrees with someone else, it does not mean that they are either sick or hateful…and I won’t allow that sort of verbiage here.
Being on the spectrum can already skew how you view yourself and others.
Folks who are intersex (those born with characteristics that don’t easily fit them in as male or female) are often used to defend the trans argument, but they are less than 2% of the general population. That just doesn’t explain why everyone else is suddenly becoming trans.
I do have enough confidence in God’s sovereignty to trust that He has made me who I am (female, in my case). I also believe that people might have trans tendencies, just like some have same-sex attraction, but that can be managed within the economy of traditional sexuality. I also look at Romans 1 and think we have degenerated to the point of no return unless Christ returns to restore all things.
People have all kinds of feelings about all kinds of issues. Our society and the church is not obligated out of love or liberty to endorse or tolerate every individual’s feelings. If you are running a school with hundreds of minors, you have a duty to all the children to provide a safe environment and good education. If someone isn’t comfortable in a bathroom which accords with their original biological sex, then they should tell their parents and seek home schooling.
Teachers should only use pronouns consistent with their and their students’ birth certificates.
What has this world come to?
I was a tomboy as a child and I envied my boy cousins because of their “plumbing.” BUT I can’t think of anything I’d hate more than kissing another girl on the lips….
Perhaps, the brain is programmed? BUT not by our God! ! ! 😇
There isn’t a reason on God’s green earth that just any Bob, Bill, and Daryl, should be allowed to legally purchase an AR-15.
Military style assault weapons ain’t worth a tinker’s damn for deer and quail, and they have but one purpose.
At this very moment there is some nameless and faceless nut-bag out there planning his big splash with an easy to get assault weapon.
I am surprised anyone even listens to you anymore. I have just been waiting for the point where you go all atheist like the other people you drive away from the faith.
You really need to just shut this place down and quit being a force for evil.
I’m surprised too…and surprised that you seem to be attached to the site .
On the contrary, many see this site as place of sanity where Jesus is lifted above the carnal wrangling of His alleged followers.
I’m not going anywhere and I thank you for your continued readership.
How could Michael drive someone from the faith?
Dang, Derek needs to start drinking decaf….
Derek, a force for evil? That is as cuckoo as a. German clock! ! !
