TOTAL CONFUSION ON RELIGIOUS, MORAL AND GENDER ISSUES

Gen Z’s ‘lack of confidence’ and ‘confusion’ over religious, moral issues presents a major challenge.

A major obstacle in reaching Generation Z, the rising generation that is entering college, is the “confusion” and “lack of confidence” on moral and religious issues, according to an apologist who specialises in student outreach.

Jonathan Morrow, director of Cultural Engagement and Immersion at Impact 360 Institute, is an expert in training high school and college students in Christian apologetics and worldview.

The world that they’ve inherited has really essentially told them, ‘Hey, real truth doesn’t exist on questions of morality and spirituality.’ And so they don’t want to be judgemental. They don’t want to impose on anybody. And they’ve been raised as a generation that’s kind of been taught to believe that how I feel determines what’s real. And that is kind of a default.”

Morrow noted that even when surveying “a group of Christians, who they knew everybody in the room were Christians — this focus group — they almost relativised statements as soon as it came out of their mouth. It’s like, ‘But that’s just, you know, my opinion. That’s just what I believe.’”

Also, to demonstrate the extent of the confusion, we now have a coalition of radical feminists, lesbians, and politically conservative women are petitioning the government to scrap“gender identity” in federal civil rights legislation that’s being considered in Congress. Both the radical feminist organisation Women’s Liberation Front, a left-wing radical feminist organisation, and the Hands Across the Aisle Coalition, a bipartisan group of women, together resisting transgender activism and ideology, despite profound differences on other issues, issued statements denouncing the Equality Act as a “full-frontal assault” on women and girls. The bill, which was introduced Wednesday, has the support of 161 major corporations.

Rejection of God, His Word and His Values particularly in academia is producing a generation that is in total confusion on religious, moral and gender issues. With much of the church compromising with the world on gay marriage and transgender issues the confusion is complete and a sure “end times” sign.

 

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES AT CRISIS LEVELS IN THE USA

Evangelist Franklin Graham reacted Wednesday to a report about a shocking increase in sexually transmitted diseases in the US. In a series of tweets, he said, “The CDC announced yesterday that our nation has set another record, but it’s not one to celebrate.”

“Last year nearly 2.3 million cases of sexually transmitted diseases were diagnosed in the U.S. That broke the record set in 2016 by nearly 200,000 cases,” Graham points out.

“An STD expert says that President Trump should declare this a public health crisis.  Graham believes what America has, is a moral crisis and a spiritual crisis.  And it manifests itself in many ways, including this public health crisis.  Sin always has a cost, a consequence. God loves us and wants to protect us.  His Word tells us what to do: ‘Flee from sexual immorality.  Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.'” (1 Cor. 6:18).

World Health Organisation estimates: 357 million new cases of curable sexually transmitted infections in 2012. Curable STIs chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis, trichomoniasis. The increase since 2012 is also classified by WHO as epidemic requiring immediate and drastic action. The recommended actions don’t of course address the real issue –  a moral and spiritual crisis, further evidence we are in the “last days”. Church wake up.
