FUTILITY OF THEIR MINDS

Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds.Ephesians 4:17

It is a modern futility of the mind that sexual identity is now a matter of personal preference and is disconnected from the body God has given us as demonstrated by our sexual organs, chromosomes and DNA.

The problem is not just mental or cultural but spiritual. They believe the lies, the falsehoods of the evil one, having no knowledge of the spiritual battle that is taking place. They are literally under the control of Satan and his demons. Satan hates us because we are the image bearers of God. and he will do his utmost to destroy us.

They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity.Ephesians 4:18-19

These are harsh words: because of the ignorance in them, they are darkened in their understanding, have hardened hearts, and are alienated from God. Thereby they become callous and given up to every kind of impurity.

What is to be our reaction? This scripture makes it clear our response is to be twofold.

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” Ephesians 5:11

Christ must be our model of how we expose and address gender and sex issues. Invariably they will call us bigots and haters but others who know us will say, “No, they disagree with us, but I think they love me and want what is best for me.”

Finally be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 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 6:10-12

Jesus healing the sick. Jesus must be our model for how we treat others

CONFUSION REIGNS

Transgender Contestant Defeats 21 Women to Win Miss Nevada USA Pageant

For the first time in the pageant’s history, the title of Miss Nevada USA has been won by a transgender woman.

Kataluna Enriquez was crowned the winner Sunday at the South Point hotel-casino in Las Vegas. The 27-year-old Enriquez won the Miss Silver State USA pageant in March, a preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant. Enriquez beat 21 female candidates to represent Nevada in the Miss USA pageant that will be held on Nov. 29.

As CBN News has reported, as popular culture treats transgenderism as the new “in” thing, the Bible clearly teaches there are no other gender categories besides male and female. The first two chapters of Genesis clearly show God’s design for humanity.

Indicative of where the world is heading, three years ago, the World Health Organization declared that being transgender should no longer be considered a mental health disorder.

The extent of the confusion that reigns when you dispense with our Creator’s Instruction Manual is revealed by Dr Michelle Cretella, President of the American College of Paediatricians, she says it’s a big problem that the use of the term “gender” has been morphed overtime to invent more than 60 different “genders.”

Our sex is binary,” Dr. Cretella previously told CBN News. “It’s an objective biological trait, and that’s what we need to get back to. Thoughts and how we perceive ourselves are not hardwired by biology and can be correct and incorrect.

Freedom March declares move of God among ex-LGBT people

Moreover, people who have left LGBT lifestyles say the power of God can help heal sexual identity disorders. Many people who have voluntarily abandoned their LGBTQ identities have participated in events like The Freedom March or recently protested a bill by California lawmakers who have been trying to ban efforts to provide biblical counselling to those who are asking for help to overcome same-sex attraction. 

“I am a living example that there is revival in the LGBT community,” M J Nixon, an ex-lesbian and co-founder of the Freedom March, told CBN News. “When I came to Christ, He really showed me the truth of my real identity.”

Ken Williams and Elizabeth Woning minister at Bethel Church in Redding, California. They describe themselves as “once gay” and know personally that change is possible. “I would never have made it without the ability to go find a counsellor that was going to tell me, ‘Hey, Jesus cares about this issue,’” Williams previously told CBN News. 

GREAT COMMISSION UNDER THREAT

In 2015, Michelle Higgins, a Black pastor and organizer, stood up before tens of thousands of people at a popular evangelical conference in St Louis, Missouri, and told them that, as she put it, “mission work was really an exercise in exporting racism, and that evangelicalism was a moral protection for white supremacy.”

Higgins criticized the pro-life movement as “a big spectacle” on Monday in St. Louis where 16,000 evangelical Christian students gathered together.

Today, her criticisms are gaining ground. “For the last five hundred years, Christianity has been influenced by Martin Luther’s effort to decentralize the church,” Lisa Sharon Harper, the founder of a progressive evangelical religious group freedomroad.us, told me. “For the next five hundred years, the principle effort will be decolonization.”

More important than how Harper and others conceive of the last 500 years is what they predict for the ensuing 500: decolonization. And this is necessitated because of what has happened over the past half-millennia (or, at least, since 1619), the global project of white supremacy: “mission work was really an exercise in exporting racism, and that evangelicalism was a moral protection for white supremacy.” There you have it.

These are arid and divisive ideas, ones that are infecting certain quadrants of American Christianity. Left unchecked, they will cause problems for Christian fulfillment of the Great Commission.

BIBLICAL END TIMES – THEY WILL CALL GOOD EVIL AND EVIL GOOD

The BBC shamelessly opens a Pandora’s Box of gender confusion and sexual immorality, corrupting young, vulnerable minds—and schools are following their lead.

The BBC have released nine online videos titled “The Big Talk” for use in British schools as part of the UK’s new Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) curriculum, which came into force in September, 2019.

West-went-crazy

More than 100 gender identities have now been coined to cater for every possible choice that certain people have made regarding their sexuality. It was widely reported in the UK media that the BBC encourages “celebration” of this plethora of genders (see also our previous article, Celebrating gender confusion). To question this ideology is now considered rank heresy. However, the BBC’s teaching will only sow further confusion in our society. The unpalatable truth is that a radical, dangerous philosophy is now being forced upon the young and vulnerable as part of the advancement of an extreme political ideology. It is of grave concern that the BBC is preaching this new ‘all-inclusive doctrine’ to children as young as 9–12 years of age. However, they have no lower age limit in practice. In the BBC videos, school children are encouraged to transgress the clear standards of God’s Word and to celebrate this behaviour. Also, The Coalition for Marriage reports children as young as four are being instructed in transgenderism2—this is a gravely concerning situation.

Recently, Canadian academic Christopher Dummitt, a leader in the field of historical gender studies, bluntly admitted: “Everyone was (and is) making it up. That’s how the gender-studies field works.”4 Dummit confesses that his field is driven by the underlying, unproven, ideological belief that gender is socially constructed, that it is non-binary (i.e. not restricted to male and female), and that traditional masculinity empowers men to oppress women. Such thinking has dominated the liberal arts in Western academic institutions since the 1990s. But such an ideology Dummit admits is “bankrupt”, not based on biological fact.

“END TIMES” – TOTAL REJECTION OF GOD’S CREATED ORDER

I am otherworldly’: Ex-transgender man, 33, who now identifies as an ‘agender ALIEN’ reveals they have had their nipples and eyebrows REMOVED to look ‘less human’

Extraterrestrial: The 33-year-old has gone as far as having surgery to remove their nipples in order to make them appear 'less human' 

  • Jareth Nebula was born a woman but then transitioned to a man when they were 29-years-old 
  • The Washington-native, who works as a barber’s shop receptionist, said after transitioning into a man, they still didn’t feel right  
  • The 33-year-old said they didn’t ‘feel comfortable’ as either gender
  • Therefore, when Jareth learned about the term agender – which translates to without gender – they applied this to themselves
  • Jareth decided to refer to themselves as an agender alien, and now sports a totally new alien-like look 
  • In order to appear ‘less human’, Jareth has had their nipples removed, and sports a number of facial piercings and wears alien-like makeup looks   
  • Jareth is agender, and prefers to be referred to with the pronoun ‘they’ 

    According to the Mirror, Jareth, who identifies as agender – which translates to ‘without gender’ – and prefers to be referred to with the pronoun they, named himself after the character played by David Bowie in the 1986 musical fantasy Labyrinth.

    Unlike the term gender-fluid – which refers to a person’s whose gender identity is not fixed, or a person who feel they are a mix of both genders – agender typically refers to being gender-less, without a gender, or gender neutral.

    Explaining their transition journey, Jareth said: ‘After coming out as transgender and believing I had finally found myself, I realised I was wrong – I wasn’t male or female, or even human.

    ‘I don’t think or feel like humans. I can’t really explain it to others – I’m simply otherworldly.

    ‘I didn’t feel comfortable as either gender or even anything in between. I know I’m stuck in a human form and that’s how I’m perceived by others – but to me, I’m an alien with no gender,’ he added.

    ‘I thought being a trans man would solve all of my issues and inner battles with finding out who I was, but I wasn’t as happy as I expected to be,’ they said.

    ‘I felt like I was trying to fit into someone else’s box. I didn’t want to be constrained – that’s when I discovered what agender was.

    ‘I’d always been obsessed with aliens, too, and what it means to be extraterrestrial, so the idea of being an agender alien fit perfectly as an identity for me,’ they added.

    ‘People treat me like a freak because I’m an alien, but it’s a completely valid thing to call yourself,’ Jareth explained.

    ‘Who is anyone to tell you who you can or can’t be? If someone wants to identify as anything, even an animal, let them.  

    ‘I feel sorry for people who attack me online. I think they lack empathy and just want to target me, so I deal with it pretty well by brushing it off.

    Jareth added: I’m happy with who I am and will continue to become more alien-like every day.’ “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” Judges 21:25
