I don’t often address controversial topics in blog posts. My main purpose in writing is to give Biblical encouragement to struggling Christians in an increasingly confusing world … but the simplistic world that I grew up in has taken another disturbing moral turn with the very public transformation of one of the “world’s greatest athletes” from the man that he was into the woman that he wills himself to be. Who would ever have thought that the 1976 gold medal winner in the MEN’S decathlon at the Montreal Summer Olympic games would arrive at a point in life where he would even question such a thing as, “Am I really a man”. He was, after all, a MALE role model for an entire generation of aspiring young athletes at the time.
Gen. 1:27 seems to be a very simple statement of fact to me: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” What a revolutionary God was to think that He was wise enough to choose our sexes FOR us! When I was a kid, I don’t recall ever really having a problem with that. Now, they’re creating ‘camps’ for kids with “identity confusion issues” to “help them” to transition into the sexual people they were “meant to be”. WHAT? God has a serious question for those of us who entertain such thoughts.
But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?” (Rom. 9:20)
Today, we have adults in the fields of Education and Psychology purposefully posing these confusing “sexual identity and preference” issues before children too young to even comprehend the meaning of the questions being asked. To compound their sin, they inject their own biased, anti-Christian, and anti-God views into every aspect of the “curriculum” being foisted upon little kids. Instead of helping one very confused adult to get the help he obviously needs to correct his own mental problems, they are holding him … oops, her up as some kind of iconic role model for young children to follow.
As if the world weren’t already “bad” enough, “we” are creating an even darker, and more confusing future in our obvious rebellion against God. A whole new generation of children hangs in the balance, and responsible young Christian parents would be wise to consider their educational choices.
Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate,” says the Lord. “Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Cor. 6:17-18)
The choices before us, between good and evil, light and darkness, are becoming clearer and clearer as time goes on. 1 Cor. 14:33 tells us that “God is not the author of confusion.” As time goes on, in this up-side down world we live in today, it becomes more and more obvious that the disturbing truth about who does “author” confusion … is … US.
