IS RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN AUSTRALIA GUARANTEED BY EITHER PARTY?

Listen to Martin Isles of Australian Christian Lobby (ACL). This video reveals that what is proposed by the Ruddock review will not provide freedom of religion for Australians. I recommend all of my Aussie followers sign up for Martin’s weekly “The Truth of it” so you can get involved.

Will our Christian voice be heard? We need to ACT. Wake up church.

What is proposed for children concerning the transgender issue alone  is horrific. All of my followers need to listen to Martin and hear the truth of it. Also, the encouraging stories at the end of this video are worth the time invested.

WILL YOU EXPOSE THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS?

Are we prepared to stand up against what is wrong in God’s sight? How come churches are not standing up against abortion, same sex marriage, transgender issues. The Bible says, we are to expose the unfruitful works of darkness.

This sermon Politics: Expose the Unfruitful Works of Darkness by Pastor Shane Idleman will challenge you to take God’s Word seriously on these issues. You will see clearly, up front, that Pastor Shane is passionate about how Christians should be living their lives in these “last days” when evil abounds.

SEX MATTERS: HOW MODERN FEMINISM LOST TOUCH WITH SCIENCE, LOVE AND COMMONSENSE

 Mona Charen is a well-known conservative author, columnist and speech writer who has spoken out about the dangers of modern feminism and the transgender identity push on children. But what many might not know about her is that at one point in her childhood, she wanted people to call her “Timmy.””I shudder to think what would have happened if I had come along a little later in history,” Charen told The Christian Post during an interview this week about her book, Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch With Science, Love and Common Sense.In her book, Charen explains how second-wave feminists had argued for years about how the differences between men and women were a result of social construct and conditioning.

“Overall, [their view of] sex differences has been debunked by scientific research in the last decades. We know so much more now about brain structure and organization, about the influence of hormones, about certain basic hardwire differences between male and female brains as well as bodies,” the 61-year-old author said. “The idea that everything that is different about man and women being a result of socialization has been shown to be wrong. That is where the science has caught up with them.”

Instead of acknowledging the scientific findings, Charen said, dishonest feminists sought to “change the vocabulary.”

“They stopped talking about there being no difference between the sexes and they started talking about gender,” she said. “They said, ‘Well, there are many genders and gender is subjective and it can’t be measured by hormones and chromosomes. They really just kind of, with sleight of hand and language, they avoided the scientific debunking of their pet theories about people being identical.”

The movement to change such language is also playing out at the public school level. Most recently, a school board in Virginia voted to change the language in its middle school and high school sex-ed curriculum to scrub out the phrase “biological sex” and replace it with “sex assigned at birth.”

“There are even parents now who are declining to assign a sex to their babies. They don’t want to tell people whether they had a boy or a girl. They are saying they are going to find out as the child develops what sex it is,” she said. “I regard this as the logical endpoint of the feminist’s wrong ideas of the 1970s that everything is socially constructed. That is where we have arrived.” “We have arrived at a place where we are now investing a lot into the idea of gender identity — which I am not even sure is a thing,” Charen continued. “They are investing a lot in the idea that this is all purely subjective.”

In Charen’s view, she doesn’t have a problem with adults who want to go through with gender transition procedures and therapies because it is a “free country” and “people can do whatever they want.”

“But I think it is really dangerous, just based on a theory about sexuality, to begin giving massive hormone-blocking injections to prepubescent children and to mess with their psyche’s by … cutting [a girl’s] hair in a boy’s fashion and putting [a girl] in boy’s clothing and treating her as a boy,” Charen stressed. “Kids go through phases. Some girls are very masculine and they are still girls. Some boys are very feminine but they are still boys. The notion that you would interfere with that is really scary. Children are not capable of making such life-altering, drastic decisions for themselves, certainly not when they are preschoolers. I find this whole thing very, very dangerous.”

Charen is right it is dangerous and clear evidence we are in the last days. God will not tolerate the wickedness that is being done to children. It is, as in “the days of Noah when wickedness abounded”, the time when Jesus will return to rule and reign and righteousness will be restored.

OHIO PARENTS MAY LOSE CUSTODY OF 17-Y-O CHILD FOR NOT SUPPORTING GENDER TRANSITION

An Ohio court is set to determine Friday if the parents of a teen girl, who identifies as a boy, should lose custody because they object to hormone treatments and a “gender transition” process on medical and religious grounds.

God is already judging America. Moreover, He has His prophets (e.g. Jonathan Cahn) clearly demonstrating it’s God’s judgement and that it will escalate unless the nation repents and stops sinning. Whilst there has been some positive moves under Trump, same sex marriage and transgender issues involving children, as reported here, do not augur well for the church. Increased persecution is imminent, and Jesus prophesied “great falling away” will follow.

CNN reported Tuesday on a Hamilton County court’s ongoing proceedings involving the parents of a 17-year-old girl — neither of which can be named per court instructions — who want the court to intervene in order to stop her from receiving hormones and therapy. The treatment was recommended by a “medical team” working with the teen and who considers such treatment a “life-or-death situation.”

The parents, however, want custody of their child because they believe that by allowing the grandparents to have custody “it would simply be a way for the child to circumvent the necessity of parents’ consent,” said Karen Brinkman, their attorney, according to court transcripts. Brinkman contended that given the mental state of the teenager, she is in no position to make such a life-altering decision.

The parents, she continued, “have done their due diligence contacting medical professionals, collecting thousands of hours of research,” and believe that the administration of hormones are not a “medically necessary form of treatment” and that it “would do more harm than good.” Not all of the details surrounding the case have been made public.

“If the judge rules in favour of the ideologically driven gender clinic, the ability of all parents to protect their children of any age from all aspects of this social and medical experiment will take a tremendous hit,” said Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Paediatricians in an interview with The Christian Post Wednesday.

She noted that such a delusion is a disorder of the mind; that gender dysphoria is distinctly unlike a disease of the body like diabetes, asthma, or cancer; and that no long term evidence exists showing that encouraging a child’s delusion prevents suicide.

Furthermore, she stressed, “there is no evidence that any gender dysphoric child’s suicidal feelings are due to parents’ refusing to go along with the delusion. It is more likely that whatever has caused the child’s depression and suicidal thoughts is also triggering the gender dysphoria.”

The CNN report presumes the maleness of the girl and employs the pronoun “he” throughout the entirety of the piece. Medical experts from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Centre, which has been working with the teenager, testified in court that the father’s refusal to call the child by her chosen name and the parents’ rejection of his daughter’s gender identity have caused her to have suicidal feelings. CNN also featured the words of Dr. Michelle Forcier for supporting commentary, who is a professor at Brown University and longtime LGBT activist paediatrician who works with children as young as four who think they are transgender, though she is not involved in this specific case.

“If your child had asthma and was turning blue, you wouldn’t deny them their albuterol inhaler or say ‘let’s wait,’ ” Forcier said. “If this were cancer or diabetes, we wouldn’t be having this conversation, but people get funny when it comes to medical care when gender is involved, and that’s harmful.”

Cretella made a point to tell CP that Forcier’s remarks are “unscientific.” “A child suffering from gender dysphoria has a fixed belief contrary to physical reality. This is a delusion,” she said, and “a delusion is not any person’s ‘authentic self.'”

 

“Since there are no long term studies regarding the use of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones in young children and teens, this entire enterprise is, by definition, an experiment upon a minor — and a dangerous one at that given the life-long permanent side effects.”

In November of 2016 the teen contacted a crisis chat service to say she did not feel safe in her parents’ home and alleged that her father told her to commit suicide because she was “going to hell anyway.” Her lawyer said in court that her parents’ decision to enroll her in Catholic school where she had to wear dresses and go by her birth name contributed to her trauma and increased suicidal ideation.

The teen also said she was forced to sit in a room and listen to Bible readings for over six hours at a time, according to the complaint; the parents had reportedly stopped the mental health counselling she was receiving and opted for a Christian alternative.
