We have come into a new age of ideas. It could have been hidden for years, but has finally reached the point of world recognition with the new identity of Caitlin Jenner. By revealing his secret to the world, it empowers others to do the same. We have a host of others not only wanting recognition and approval for their behavior and/or lifestyle, they want to condemn “normal” beliefs. New minorities are becoming established these days. One for many years I’ve seen is marriage between man and woman for more than 20 years. I’m proud to say I’m in the minority there! The world has transitioned to accept gay and lesbian marriages. I’ve seen someone wanting to marry their pet (dog). Not sure why, but it was out there. There’s also this one crazy man who claims to be a 7 year old girl. He abandoned his wife and children to become adopted by a crazy couple who believe him to be their 7 year old daughter. There’s a host of sexual immorality associated with these crazy people. God told the Israelites, “I will hide my face from them, and see what their end will be; for they are a perverse generation, children who are unfaithful” (Deuteronomy 32:20). Make no mistake about God’s love for His Creations (us) but just because He created us doesn’t mean that we reciprocate and love and honor Him back. When we are unfaithful and dishonoring, He doesn’t hear pay attention to us. His Holiness cannot look upon disgrace, which is what we are without Jesus. God DOES hear a pleading, humble, heart-broken cry that reaches out to Him, even at the last possible moment. He promises in Romans 10:9 “that if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised him form the dead, you will be saved”.
We’ve come a long way with our cultural beliefs, customs, dress, manors, attitude and overall acceptance. Our nation/culture no longer lives by a system of “right and wrong”, it’s more “whatever seems right at the moment”. Our judicial system, being more conservative in the past, has changed with the culture to “OK” immoral, wrong behavior by considering it a “personal right”. With a nation of billions of people, everyone cannot have their own personal rights met. Yet the ones screaming and demanding the loudest are the most perverse. Conservative folks and Christians need to begin hollering back and standing up for our foundational belief system – “right and wrong” with “consequences”. It is NOT ok to be born a man and become a woman; it is NOT ok to be a 47-year man and pretend to be a 7-year girl having sex with your foster dad (the same age). It is NEVER ok to sexually abuse children just because you have the desire to do so. “The Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man” (Genesis 2:22). Wrong is wrong forever! We do not need to accept it just because a minority of perverts want to do these things.
2 Corinthians 4:2-5, “We have renounced secret and shameful ways, we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, be setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age (Satan) has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God”.
