Rolling Out the ‘T’ – and it’s not Tolerance

Most of us may think the transgender movement has been more of a recent development in American culture, but it goes way back to 1952 when the first alleged “sex change” was credited to a man named Christine Jorgensen. Remember, the “T” in LGBTQ has always been there, waiting in the wings as the groundwork was laid by same-sex marriage activists.

By 2015, the stage was set quite nicely for Bruce Jenner to catapult into a culture shaping icon by selling the public on his transition into Caitlyn. Transgender individuals had been quietly waiting for the right time culturally, politically, and socially, and the election of Barack Obama as president encouraged them, giving them the green light to deny God’s truth and come out in full force.

Sadly, we now live in a society that largely thinks moral absolutes and truth are so yesterday and unnecessary if they were ever relevant at all. But God never changes and He created the world including all human beings, either male or female, and this happens to be supported by biology, science, and most in the medical community.

Conscience, Corruption, and the Abortion Business Cover-Up

science and biology now confirm a baby’s heart starts beating 22 days after conception, and they can feel pain by at least 20 weeks.

But do we really know when life begins? This question was asked during legal arguments in the Supreme Court case, Roe V. Wade in 1972-73. Granted, they did not have the advances in technology we do today including sonograms and ultrasound. They did have the Word of God – and ignored it completely.

That was 45 years ago. What’s our excuse today and where is the church?

Also available are the many undercover videos of Planned Parenthood employee’s convicting admissions, so we can no longer say abortion is not pure evil being promoted as a choice, a right, and a service. The progressive media won’t touch news stories…

How the Enemy Advances

The Enemy is advancing through our country, our culture, and even many of our churches because we have surrendered much ground and have not defended the truth. Though there is always hope for a revival – and I have no idea what it might take for this to happen – the light is dimming in and on America, and the clock is ticking.

Many have already been deceived as the Enemy has had success defining the terms of battle, and in many cases, redefining words. The Left has been promoting sin as normal, natural, and healthy, and when Christians speak up, it leads to charges of intolerance. If we do nothing, even more people will call evil good.”

If most Christians continue to avoid these battles, if we are not established in His truth, and if we refuse to defend the faith, society will rapidly deteriorate. If we do not pray to the only living God to give us wisdom, strength, and guidance, we won’t be able to effectively share the gospel, influence culture for Christ and bear good fruit for Him.

The World Wonders About USA Protests

People see disrespect of the flag, one of the most loved symbols that identify us as a united people. Onlookers don’t understand why young, wealthy, elite pro football players and teams are protesting – but they most likely perceive it has something to do with Trump and the government.

They see a revolution brewing, and unlike most Americans, people in other countries know about revolutions. Many did not end well. So here we are watching to see what NFL owners and players will do next while a literal mad man with nukes in North Korea could literally send the world into unprecedented calamity and upheaval.

You don’t think the world interprets these public protests differently than how they are intended?

Last weekend, NFL football players over in London knelt during the National Anthem prior to a game at Wembley stadium. And if that wasn’t embarassing enough, those same American athletes then stood up for the playing of Britain’s anthem, God Save the Queen. You tell me, what message does this send to the world?

More importantly, I wonder how American war veterans feel about all this. And what about those still serving our country, fighting for our interests in other nations?

The British newspaper, The Guardian’s headline told us how they see it with the headline:

“NFL players kneel for anthem in unprecedented defiance of Trump.”

The world is watching and so are American children. Some still have no idea what the protest is all about. In a nation as divided politically, spiritually, and racially, I wish I could be more optimistic, but I do believe in God’s sovereignty in all things. Let’s pray that somehow this will lead more people to the only true source of peace, Jesus Christ.

Rob Bell’s Ambiguity, Wedding Cakes, and ESPN Politics

It’s not surprising to see people attack the deity of Jesus Christ and the truth of Scripture in today’s postmodern, secular society. It’s not even surprising to see attacks on Christians and discrimination at many levels. What is disappointing and tragic however, is to see the worldliness and deception creep right into many churches across the country.

Deceivers such as Rob Bell don’t just show up and start preaching blatant heresy; they gradually begin to seduce unsuspecting believers to distrust, minimize and worst case scenario – to deny the gospel and the person of Jesus Christ as sovereign Lord and God. He is our final authority, but not so with the emergent, people-pleasing church. So there had to be a path paved and Scripture had to be diluted and the gospel watered down or many Christians would not have fallen for so many false teachings.

We touch on Bell’s new book, the religious freedom issue and Supreme Court case involving Christian bakery owner, Jack Phillips, and the leftist leanings of progressive sports network, ESPN.

Alarming Trends for Religious Freedom

On a recent radio program, we discussed some influential voices within the church. It is disappointing how many followers these people have. One example if you haven’t heard the latest, is Christian author, Jen Hatmaker. She not only endorses same-sex marriage, she now goes so far as to say (ready?) she believes gays and lesbians who are married should receive counseling from the Christian church – to strengthen their marriages if they want to be part of the Christian community.

She previously said same-sex relationships can be “holy,” after which her books were pulled from LifeWay Christian Store. More recently, Hatmaker said she dreams of a day when church is safe for the LGBT community. Okay, define ‘safe.’ 

I have learned that when liberal Christians, the left, progressives, or the emergent church preaches “unity,” what they mean is uniformity. They are fine if we conform to their watering down of the true gospel. They love the idea of diversity as long as we united around their progressive worldview that distorts the truth and deity of Christ.

Taxpayers to Fund Trans Surgeries, Pelosi Progressives Relieved

We do not have much time left and the lukewarm church had better get serious. If we are not already a stench in God’s nostrils and unsalvageable as a nation, we sure must be close. How much longer will He withhold judgment? Many seasoned Christians believe we are living in Romans 1 and drawing near to some of the most intense parts of prophecy in the book of Revelation.

The good news is truth will prevail. The damage however, that’s being done to the very moral underpinnings of our nation has become irreparable. There is no turning back and tragically, many souls have been lost for eternity. I understand this is all happening fast, but if we remain on the sidelines and out of these conversations and public policy debates, expect the transgender train to plow full steam ahead leaving death and destruction in its wake.

The ‘Resistance’ Inciting Violence, Looking the Other Way

I miss the old days when disagreement and political opposition did not mean you hated the other person or party. This is now a time of sustained hostility most of us believe will not get much better in a nation that has embraced moral relativism and abandoned God.

The only thing that will alter the course we’re on is if people turn back to God because only He can change the hate-filled, hardened hearts of sinners. This is why sharing the gospel is so important. All around us, people are without hope and hurting, and incident’s like today’s is a glaring reminder of how bad it has gotten.

Abraham Lincoln was right when he called for national fasting, prayer, and repentance because the people had forgotten God. That was 1863. Healing won’t come from Washington or Hollywood; it has to start with us.

As we approach the Fourth of July and celebrate our national independence, remember our blessings and freedoms, yes, but let’s acknowledge the fact America desperately needs revival. In all the chaos and noise, people are more in need of the healing touch and salvation of Jesus Christ than ever in our history.

Sanitized Socialism & Communist Goals

Socialism is a deception. If you look at every major area of importance in America where Christianity was once prominent and had influence, history shows truth has been replaced by lies. We will be able to raise more awareness and fight more effectively once we realize the fact that the United States of America is under siege from within by anti-Christian promoters of immorality. Until we acknowledge the enemy, we will just keep on buying what they’ve been selling. So let’s start with some questions: Did you know that even though the cold war ended, Communism did not die or...

God’s Perfect Timing in Christ, the Beginning and the End

If you have ever been disappointed with God, His answer to your prayers or His timing, then welcome to the overcrowded club! Maybe we can all learn something from these experiences. Slow down and trust in Jesus; love God and love your neighbor, submit to God’s sovereignty. Obey His commandments and walk by faith (not by sight) a day at a time.

While we were still sinners, Christ redeemed us at just the right time, forgave our sins, and will return to deliver us eternally. He’s got us covered past, present, and future!

Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, 2 Corinthians 1:10 (NKJV)
