DETRANSITION: THE WOUNDS THAT WON’T HEAL

Dr. Jordan B Peterson sits down with 18 years old de-transitioner Chloe Cole. Chloe was indoctrinated, affirmed, and set on an irreparable path at the age of 15, and now finds herself abandoned, and criticized by the community and the doctors that led her over the edge. Chloe Cole is an 18-year-old de-transitioner from The Central Valley of California. She started her transition at 12 years old, puberty blockers and testosterone at 13, and had a double mastectomy at 15 years old. She is now suffering physically, and emotionally and as a result is a strong advocate against gender ideology along with many others.

London’s Tavistock Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) has been dismantled after a report by Dr. Hilary Cass that found serious missteps, weaknesses, and evidentially unsupported treatments of gender dysphoric children. Potential lawsuits are now a reality. Of the 19,000 young people treated at Tavistock, over 1,000 of them may bring lawsuits against the GIDS 

Back to Chloe, what struck me, is at 18 as a result of the medication and surgery she is now experiencing pain in her bones. in the joints and in her back, she is having bladder problems, the surgery to remove her breasts has ongoing complications, and now that she is transitioning she could not breastfeed even if she could conceive and it appears she is already experiencing the symptoms of menopause. What a disaster and as Jordan Peterson outlines the medical profession will eventually pay a heavy price for going along with this Satanically-driven movement to change a person’s biological sex using blockers, hormones, and surgery.

What about governments like Australia that have made it a gaolable offense to try and counsel young people that want to transition? Hopefully, they will be brought down for going along with this madness.

All of this is evidence we are in the last days. Thank goodness Jesus told us that when these things start to happen look up because your redemption draws near.

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads because your redemption is drawing near.Luke 21:27

GENERATION INDOCTRINATION: INSIDE THE TRANSGENDER BATTLE

In this five-part investigative podcast series, Showalter masterfully takes listeners through heartbreaking stories, expert opinions, and bewildered academics’ experiences as these individuals push back on the narratives being perpetuated and targeted at young minds.

As many Christians watch in horror, wondering how culture devolved so quickly and what’s poised to happen next, “Generation Indoctrination” gives parents and other key stakeholders the knowledge needed to understand the problem — and the path forward.

The transgender craze is growing and metastasizing in America and worldwide. Confusion is abounding. And while Western cultures celebrate and elevate gender chaos, the societal and cultural costs are quickly mounting. Satan and his demons are truly controlling what is unfolding in God’s world and the truth of what Paul told us in Ephesians is evident,

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.Ephesians 6:12

That’s why it is important enterprising journalist Brandon Showalter of The Christian Post is offering a no-holds-barred exploration of the topic in “Generation Indoctrination,” a new documentary-style podcast series aimed at exploring the roots and impact of the transgender debate.

Showalter, an intrepid reporter at the forefront of covering the movement, believes “Generation Indoctrination” will inform listeners about its origins while also helping reframe peoples’ understanding of why our cultural devolution matters and what’s truly at stake.

“From a loss of parental rights to botched and destroyed young lives, the dire impact of the transgender movement leaves little room for apathy,” Showalter said. “We’ll explore the chaotic state of our education system, the overtly sinister actions and craven cowardice of our institutions, the history of how we arrived where we are, and much more.”

“We believe this is an important topic to explore for such a time as this,” Dr. Chris Chou, CEO of The Christian Post, said of the series. “With lives and truth hanging in the balance, ‘Generation Indoctrination’ offers a restorative dose of reality desperately needed in our post-truth era.

AS BIDEN ADMIN PUSHES GENDER CHANGES FOR KIDS, FDA WARNS OF BRAIN SWELLING FROM PUBERTY BLOCKERS

The following information reveals a nation that has totally rejected God’s truth, values, and commandments. The government of the most powerful country in the world is putting the lives of children at risk in support of transgenderism. Read what the US Assistant Secretary of Health, who happens to be a man who identifies as a transgender woman, says about giving children puberty blockers: “life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers.” This is in spite of the FDA warning of dangerous side effects.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) — a one-time Democratic presidential contender

At least, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) — a one-time Democratic presidential contender — is rebuking the Biden administration for its support of puberty blockers for children. Gabbard’s comments come after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning against gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH), known commonly as puberty blockers. Gabbard stated in a video posted Sunday to her Twitter account “Unfortunately, at almost the exact same time the FDA issued this warning, Biden-Harris administration officials were making public statements actively promoting the use of puberty blockers and irreversible surgeries for kids.”

The late-July FDA warning came on the heels of contradictory comments from U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine, a man who identifies as a transgender woman. As well as saying, puberty blockers for children are “life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers, Levine added, “when it comes to making sure kids are healthy and happy, I know how important care that affirms someone’s true identity can be.

This transgender woman is the US Assistant Secretary of Health and a pediatrician so should be aware of the FDA’s warning of the immediate dangers of puberty blockers given to children, moreover, the long-term effects are totally unknown.

The FDA warning announced earlier this month about puberty blockers known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH) stated that if injected into children could cause swelling of the brain, headache, blurred or loss of vision, tinnitus, dizziness, and nausea. The FDA said six cases were identified in young girls aged 5 to 12 years that had a plausible association between puberty blockers use and pseudotumor cerebri, which the Mayo Clinic identifies as the pressure inside the skull increasing for no obvious reason. The condition is also identified as idiopathic intracranial hypertension in which symptoms mimic a brain tumor. 

End times Biblical prophecies indicate that the lawlessness that we see playing out in our world is exactly what the world was like prior to God destroying all mankind with a worldwide flood. Peter warns us that in the “last days” scoffers will deliberately overlook the fact that “the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished“.

This is now the second letter that I (Peter) am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of a reminder, that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.2 Peter 3:1-7

CHRISTIANS CANNOT COUNSEL TRANSGENDER YOUTH

The recent U.S. Executive Order on Advancing Equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Individuals calls on the administration to “safeguard LGBTQI+ youth from dangerous practices like so-called ‘conversion therapy’—efforts to suppress or change an individual’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.” It contends that conversion therapy is a “discredited practice that research indicates can cause significant harm, including higher rates of suicide-related thoughts and behaviors by LGBTQI+ youth.” Biden also directed the Federal Trade Commission to determine “whether so-called conversion therapy constitutes an unfair or deceptive act or practice, and to issue such consumer warnings or notices as may be appropriate.”

In my recent post on SELLING THE TRANSGENDER STORY, I showed a very appealing video that attempts to sell the transgender agenda as a positive step forward whereby we are told that tens of thousands of children out there identify as transgender. We are also told that Ryland and the Whittington family is a typical ‘American family’. As well, we are told that gender and sexuality are different. All three claims are false. If you have not viewed this video can I suggest you do. It was posted five days ago.

God and his commandments have been rejected by the majority of people as they were by the people of Noah’s Day bringing God’s judgement upon them. Jesus warned us that the world would reject God and His values prior to His return. Persecution of active Christians (living out their faith) will be considered just.

Is the church preparing Christians for this escalating persecution?

This is another appealing video selling Ryland’s transgender conversion beginning at age 3.

SELLING THE TRANSGENDER STORY – GENDER AND SEXUALITY ARE DIFFERENT?

In this very appealing video, we are told that tens of thousands of children out there identify as transgender. We are also told that the Whittington family is a typical American family. As well, we are told that gender and sexuality are different. I would suggest that all three claims are false.

Ryland’s mother said that the child spoke to them before she could speak that she was a boy. Prior to the child coming out as a boy at age five, the parents began sex experimentation with the child. Those facts should get the alarm bells ringing.

The following statistics are given to us: 60% of transgender youth turn to self-harm and 50% to suicide according to research by the Trevor Project ( The world’s largest safe space social networking community for LGBTQ youth). These statistics are alarming however the Trevor Projects’ solution to the problem is equally alarming.

In Australia and many other western countries, to offer God’s solution (the only true solution) to the transgender problem is a gaolable offense. Even presenting God’s solution to the parents in order to save their children would get you reported to the authorities.

God and his commandments have been rejected by the majority of people as they were by the people of Noah’s Day bringing God’s judgement upon them. Moreover, Jesus told us that at the time before His return will be like Noah’s Day when lawlessness abounded. Persecution of active Christians (living out their faith) will be considered just.

For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be cut short.Matthew 24:21-22

And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?Luke 18:7-8

CONFUSION REIGNS AT THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS

“You-ology: A Puberty Guide for EVERY Body” is a book released by the American Academy of Pediatrics aiming “to talk about puberty in an inclusive way.” 

The cover of “You-ology: A Puberty Guide for Every Body,” published by the American Academy of Pediatrics on April 19. | American Academy of Pediatrics

Although there are chapters on the normal growing pains associated with puberty, the book includes content related to kids identifying as transgender, as well as the academy’s recommendations for those kids. 

“You-ology” uses short stories to highlight certain points. In Chapter 3, a group of boys in a boys’ locker room notices a biological female is there with them. They question why and are then accosted by the girl’s brother, who informs them that she is transgender

The chapter goes on to argue that sex isn’t related to what genitals a baby has and that it’s all about how someone identifies. Worse, the book goes on to describe how there aren’t two genders, but a whole multitude.

Other nightmarish terms the book uses to confuse children include “sperm-making bodies” to refer to boys and “baby-growing bodies” to refer to girls.  

“You-ology” revels in these sex nonspecific phrases, much like the omnipresent expression “birthing person,” with which the modern left is obsessed.  

In one section, the book advises readers against using the term “feminine hygiene” products to refer to items such as tampons or menstrual pads, and instead to use the term “period products.” 

Even then, sometimes the book’s authors get confused and forget their woke biology, claiming that “male” bodies produce sperm instead of leftists’ accepted position that men aren’t unique in doing that anymore. 

Later chapters recommend that kids who are uncomfortable with their bodies should wear binders or “tuck” their genitals. The book claims in some cases, medical intervention, including puberty blockers, is necessary. 

The left attempts to hide what it’s doing behind cutesy illustrations, but the reality is clear. Activist doctors who want to normalize gender ideology are foisting transgenderism on children. 

The consequences of this attempt to normalize the left’s radical agenda can be fatal.  

The Daily Signal reported the story of Yaeli Martinez, a 19-year-old girl who committed suicide after battling with depression, which she thought becoming transgender could solve. 

It’s not hard to imagine someone like Yaeli being exposed to this type of book and thinking that the solution to all his or her problems is to take puberty blockers, bind their breasts, and transition.  

That’s a dangerous lie that results in miserable kids and, in the worst case, broken families weeping over the bodies of their loved ones. 

Books such as “You-ology” exacerbate the issue not only by solidifying transgender ideology into the mainstream but by convincing kids that it is perfectly normal to change their bodies, often permanently, during a period of extreme emotional instability. 

Of course, kids are going to be confused about who they are during puberty. Their bodies are being shot full of new hormones, and they’re going through something completely unprecedented in their young lives.  

The solution isn’t to affirm something is wrong with the biological process. The solution is to say that puberty is tough, but boys will emerge as men and girls will emerge as women.  

That is a biological reality, and no amount of posturing by woke activist doctors will change that fact.  

The American Academy of Pediatrics should be ashamed to be producing material that is directly responsible for ruining the lives of children.

UNREGULATED LIVE EXPERIMENT ON CHILDREN

Author J.K. Rowling has continued to raise concerns about transgender activism, particularly the promotion of experimental puberty blockers prescribed to minors, for which she was recently accused of attacking people who take medication to aid their mental health. 

Rowling’s 4,000-word essay “TERF Wars” was published on June 10 on her website where she articulated her perspective on the dangers transgenderism poses to women and their rights. TERF stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminist and is considered a derogatory slur. ‘TERF’ is an acronym coined by trans activists, which stands for Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist. In practice, a huge and diverse cross-section of women are currently being called TERFs and the vast majority have never been radical feminists. Examples of so-called TERFs range from the mother of a gay child who was afraid their child wanted to transition to escape homophobic bullying, to a hitherto totally unfeminist older lady who’s vowed never to visit Marks & Spencer again because they’re allowing any man who says they identify as a woman into the women’s changing rooms.

Author J.K. Rowling has continued to raise concerns about transgender activism

The author further explained in her posts that she believes modern gender-transitioning amounts to a new kind of gay conversion therapy that might cause sterility and the loss of their full sexual function, pointing to a recent BBC documentary scrutinising the Tavistock clinic in London where whistle-blowers spoke about how such transitions were driven by homophobia.

“The long-term health risks of cross-sex hormones have now been tracked over a lengthy period. These side-effects are often minimized or denied by trans activists,” Rowling continued, linking to a February 2019 News-Medical.net article about an American Heart Association study on hormone use that revealed an elevated risk of cardiac problems such as heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots.

As Christians, we recognise what an affront the entire LGBTQ movement is to God but even a prominent non Christian such as Rowling can see that the trans gender issue is a potential “time bomb”.

Rowling also highlighted the words of Oxford University professor of medicine Carl Henegan who has called the off-label use of puberty-blocking drugs on minors an “unregulated live experiment on children”.

STUDY SILENCED FOR SUGGESTING KIDS BECOME TRANSGENDER DUE TO SOCIAL INFLUENCE

A mainstream study by a Brown University professor is under fire from transgender advocates for suggesting that some children become transgender due to social pressure or influence, and not because they are born that way.

The study by Lisa Littman, an assistant professor of the practice of behavioral and social sciences at Brown’s School of Public Health, was published in PLOS ONE. Brown University since has pulled a press release about the study, according to the magazine Science. The study examined why some children experience transgenderism, which is sparked by a condition known as “gender dysphoria.”

“In on-line forums,” Littman wrote in the study, “parents have been reporting that their children are experiencing what is described here as ‘rapid-onset gender dysphoria,’ appearing for the first time during puberty or even after its completion.”

The gender dysphoria among the children “seemed to occur in the context of belonging to a peer group where one, multiple, or even all of the friends have become gender dysphoric and transgender-identified during the same timeframe.”

In other words, these children identified as transgender only because their friends did, according to the study.

“Parents also report that their children exhibited an increase in social media/internet use prior to disclosure of a transgender identity,” Littman wrote.

She surveyed 250 parents of children who suddenly developed gender dysphoria and found that “21 percent of parents reported their child had one or more friends become transgender-identified at around the same time,” according to the now-pulled Brown University press release.

Bess Marcus, dean of Brown’s School of Public Health, wrote in a statement that he had heard from university community members who argued the study “could be used to discredit efforts to support transgender youth and invalidate the perspectives of members of the transgender community.”

“[W]e believe firmly that it is also incumbent on public health researchers to listen to multiple perspectives and to recognise and articulate the limitations of their work,” Marcus wrote.

God will not tolerate children being deceived and abused this way. His return is imminent at which time His wrath is poured out on the unrepentant. Make sure you are in the centre of God’s will for your life right now, if you are unsure, get on your knees in prayer. Much of the denominational church is apostate, accepting the world’s take on transgenderism and gay marriage, so come out from them. Find a group of like minded believers and do church as in the Book of Acts. There are plenty of Home Church Groups you can connect with e.g wearechurch.com (Francis Chan)

ENGAGING THE TRANSGENDER DEBATE WITH TRUTH AND GRACE

Christians in Western culture today have to deal with subjects that even 20 years ago would have been almost unthinkable to most. And the issues of gender and sexuality are among the toughest that confront Christians today—recently, the Nashville statement was released as one attempt to define the Christian view of sex and gender.

The important question is: how do we maintain a biblical worldview when simply believing that there are two biological sexes, readily identifiable in humans and determined by genetics, is now considered by many to be hate speech?

Image result

Andrew T. Walker’s book God and the Transgender Debate seeks to help Christians walk through some of the complicated issues surrounding the discussion of transgender individuals.

One of the most helpful aspects of Walker’s book is that before he addresses the facts, he addresses the attitude with which we as Christians should come to the debate. He points to the compassion that Jesus showed to hurting people, even when he was correcting their unbiblical practices and ideas:

Jesus loved people. That’s important for me to remember as I write a book with the word “debate” in its title. And it’s good for you to remember as you read a book with the word “transgender” in its title. Because at its heart, this debate isn’t about a debate. It’s about people: precious people made in the image of God who are hurting, who are confused, who are angry, who are scared, who may have been told by their family that they are unwelcome. It’s about some people who are delighted with how culture has shifted when it comes to gender identity, and other people who are concerned about how culture has shifted (p. 14).

However, the grace Walker calls for in responding to transgender individuals does not exclude the truth taught in Scripture regarding what it means to be a man or a woman.

How we got here

To properly respond to the transgender issue, we have to understand how culture got to the place where we can be confused about such foundational truths regarding human identity. He points to various elements including the loss of Christianity’s influence in key areas of the culture and the rise of radical individualism.

The Christian’s foundation

In a context where fundamental definitions of human identity seem up for grabs, it’s necessary to return to the foundations of where the Christian worldview comes from. Walker identifies God, the Creator, as the authority. Furthermore, the Gospel shows that God is good and wants what is best for us. “A crucified Creator is a God who has the authority to tell us what to do, who has the wisdom to know what is best for us, and who has proved that he can be trusted to tell us what is best for us” (p. 44).

Furthermore, God has designed mankind as male and female. “Maleness isn’t only anatomy, but anatomy shows that there is maleness. And femaleness isn’t only anatomy, but anatomy shows that there is femaleness. Men and women are more than just their anatomy, but they are not less” (p. 54). And because this is such a foundational designed aspect of humanity, rebelling against this part of our identity “can never result in happiness, flourishing, and joy, whatever it promises” (p. 55).

However, this does not mean that the church should fall into the trap of enforcing stereotypical expressions of maleness and femaleness. Walker cites examples such as a boy preferring to play with dolls or a girl who prefers to watch football as examples where someone may mistakenly try to enforce stereotypes of what is considered acceptable for boys or girls, even though there is nothing inherently sinful about a boy playing with a doll or a girl watching football (p. 55).

Part of the reality of living in a sinful world is that we are all marred by sin, but the Gospel offers hope for restoration, and Walker beautifully expresses this truth.

Engaging the culture like Christ did

Walker helpfully gives specific advice about how to engage the issue without neglecting either truth or love, including how the church might respond to the conversion of transgender people and advice for talking with children about transgenderism, including children who feel like they might be transgender. One chapter is devoted to answer 12 ‘tough questions’ people have about practical issues related to the transgender debate.

As Christians, we are called to be prepared to engage the culture with biblical truth and the love of Christ. If we hope to share the Gospel with people who are confused regarding gender, we need to be educated about the biblical issues involved. And Walker’s book gives a good introduction to how Christians can think about this issue and engage the culture.
